5 Really Expensive Lego Parts

Updated on November 28, 2017

These are some expensive Lego pieces

I've been buying and selling Lego collections since 2014. I love putting sets back together from bins I buy at garage sales, however, I really get a charge out of finding that one piece that gets me all my money back.

And I'm not talking about a minifigure or a Lego set, I'm talking about one brick. I buy and sell on eBay and Bricklink. Bricklink is a site where you can setup your own store to buy and sell Lego bricks and sets. It's also a great place to research what people are buying and selling for every Lego brick, minifig, and set.

I am also not talking about the solid gold brick or anything that is exclusive to a Lego show or Com-icon. These were or are available in sets that Lego has sold throughout the years.

Some of these bricks I have sold myself and others I have found when people mention them in forums, however, these are prices you can see for yourself at Bricklink by looking up the part number provided in this article.

8x12 Bow Boat Plate - Light Bluish Gray - Part 47405

This bow boat plate was part of two sets made in 2006 and 2008. As with most of the expensive pieces, they are usually not in many sets and are associated with a set that everyone wants. In this case set 10175, Vader's TIE Advanced UCS (Ultimate collector's series), was the likely culprit to drive this piece to where I sold it at $20.00 in May 2017. As of September 2017, you can buy one for $12.00.

Female Ponytail Long Hair - Dark Tan - Part 62696

I remember finding this part in a bucket. I didn't have the rest of the Zombie Bride, but I had the hair. The Zombie Bride was found in set 9465, the Zombies, from the Monster Fighters series in 2012. At the time, there were many Zombie shows on TV, however, I still don't know what caused this to be as expensive as it was. I sold the hair in July 2016 for $28.75. As of September 2017, the price remains the same. At some point Lego will release this and the price will drop, but until then, this is a great find.

Other Expensive Lego Bricks

Some of these are out of the following Brickset forum discussion. The prices listed are the lowest used price listed on Bricklink as of September 2017.

  • Black Cylinder Quarter 4x4x6, part 30562, $36.00 - another part from a Star Wars UCS set. Set 10018, Darth Maul
  • Sand Green Round Corner 2 x 2 Macaroni with Stud Notch, part 3062, $52.00. This piece was only found in set 3450, Statue of Liberty
  • Red Lego Container, X-Pod Top Cap 9 x 9 x 1 1/3, part 47675, $10.00 . Different colors of the same part go for 10 cents. The red version can be found in a MOC which is driving the price up.

I will add more as I come across them. If you have a piece you would like me to add, please make a note in the comments below.
