12 of the Most Expensive LEGO Sets You Can Buy Right Now
LEGO is arguably the most popular toy brand in the world. It began as a construction type of toy made up of connectable blocks that have since innovated and adapted to popular cultures throughout the decades. The interlocking of bricks to create different shapes and objects is such an iconic design many brands have tried and failed to imitate.
Since its inception in 1949, LEGO has leveraged its success into creating different video games, board games, and films. They have even opened eight massive amusement parks under the Legoland banner, scattered in famous cities around the world. But beyond all that, LEGO sets have remained the company’s bestseller.
