If you think that "Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon" LEGO set is one of the most expensive sets you are very wrong. OK, I agree, it's expensive but you look another way this LEGO Star Wars set after checking the following amounts.

Without taking into account customs sets and other very limited LEGO items (without a classical reference number) as the "LECA Automobile LEGO Inside Tour (LIT) Exclusive 2005 Edition" I found the following incredible prices :

For new sealed sets (or almost new, with box, instructions) :

1. 7750 Steam Engine (1980) => 8000.00 USD
2. 7740 Inter-City Passenger Train (1980) => 4174.46 USD (3000 EUR)
3. 1651 Maersk Line Container Truck (1980) => 4000.00 USD
4. 113 Motorized Train Set (1966) => 3757.01 USD (2700 EUR)
5. 122 Loco and Tender (1969) => 3617.86 USD (2600 EUR)
6. 182 Train Set with Signal (1975) => 3478.72 USD (2500 EUR)
7. 1063 Community Workers (1985) => 3000.00 USD
8. 1952 Dairy Tanker (1989) => 2500.00 USD
9. 7783 The Batcave: The Penguin and Mr. Freeze's Invasion (2006) => 2500.00 USD
10. 6399 Airport Shuttle (1990) => 2200.00 USD


For used but complete sets :

1. 1651 Maersk Line Container Truck (1980) => 2000.00 USD
2. 106 UNICEF Van (1985) => 1500.00 USD
3. 810 Town Plan - Continental European (1961) => 1063.04 USD (764 EUR)
4. 138 Electronic Train (1969) => 1043.61 USD (750 EUR)
5. 310 ESSO Filling Station (1958) => 946.21 (680 EUR)
6. 308 Fire Station (1958) => 946.21 USD (680 EUR)
7. 725 Town Plan (1961) => 866.33 USD (623 EUR)
8. 5563 Racing Truck (1999) => 850.00 USD
9. 1589 Town Square (1978) => 829.59 USD (596 EUR)
10. 726 12V Western Train with 2 Wagons and Cowboys (1976) => 750 USD


If we consider the number of parts of each set, the most expensive LEGO set for new condition is the "1063 Community Workers" (44 USD/piece, including minifigs) and for used condition the "106 UNICEF Van" (27 USD/piece).


So even if you feel that by buying the "10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon" at 500 USD (0,000883 USD/piece) or the "10188 Death Star" at 400 USD (0,10518 USD/piece) you will empty your bank, in fact you'll get a deal and these two sets are clearly very cheaper.
