At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we love kits. We love them so much that last week we looked at five of the rarest LEGO kits out there. This week, in honor of the holidays, we’re serving up five MORE of the world’s rarest LEGO kits, which take us from main street all the way to the stars!
The original Main Street LEGO set was released in 1980, and was so popular that it was re-released in 2003. At 622 pieces, collectors get everything they need to recreate life on Main Street U.S.A. The original 1980 Main Street kit will set you back anywhere from $100-$300, depending on condition.
Custom Car Garage
The Custom Car Garage set was designed by LEGO fans using the LEGO Digital Designer. Though it came out in 2008, the cool cars included made it so popular that it rapidly became among the rarest of kits. This was the last kit made in the LEGO Factory series, and can be yours for about $300.
TTX Intermodal Double Stack Car
Everyone loves trains, and LEGO train models are no exception. The TTX Intermodal Double Stack Car can even be combined with other LEGO train sets in the series to form larger locomotives. Though it’s just 366 pieces, collectors can pick up this rare set for about $200.
NBA Basketball Teams
This set is the first one featured in our series that contains minifigures only, and is so rare that it can be difficult to find a complete set still in the box. You can get five minifigures, NBA team stickers, and a basketball piece for around $50.
Another set in the popular Factory series of kits designed by LEGO fans, this set is 895 pieces, and includes five minifigures. This space-themed set blasted onto shelves in 2008, and was a huge hit. Snag it from popular collectors’ websites for $100 or so.
