30 Valuable LEGO Minifigures You Might Actually Own

LEGO has been a part of my life since I was really young. From Harry Potter to Star Wars, Creator Expert to LEGO Ideas. I’ve been selling both old and new LEGO through my Bricklink store ‘Capital Creations’ for over 4 years and I cover the best daily LEGO deals and promos on this blog.

Whilst many ‘Rare LEGO Minifigure’ lists mention the Comic-Con exclusives, the solid gold promotional sets, the prototypes (the list goes on), it’s very unlikely you’ll actually own these as part of your personal collection. Unless you made the specific effort to obtain them, the likelihood is, they’re not hidden at the bottom of your old toy box.

So, here’s my list of 30 Valuable LEGO minifigures that you may actually own in your own collection. All of these minifigs were sold in actual sets or poly bags.
