LEGO Infographic Shows How Much It Would Cost to Completely Collect Each Line

by Howie Decker @HowardTheDeck on March 10, 2014


This LEGO inforgraphic (source unknown, hit me up if you have any details) shows 12 of the most popular licensed LEGO lines, including the year the line debuted as well as how much it would cost to collect the entire line.

Personally, I had no idea the LEGO Harry Potter line was so vast, and I’d have thought Batman was much bigger. There’s a chance this infographic hasn’t been updated with the newest offerings, but it has to be pretty up to date due to the inclusion of the disappointing (on so many levels) Lone Ranger line.

The real takeaway here: you can likely thank a man named Jorgen Vig Knudstorp for that LEGO Joker minifigure you have on your desk at work (or whoever that special minifig is that you keep safely separated from your kid’s LEGOs, because they would just lose the hair and that would be a shame). Since Jorgen took over, LEGO’s licensing deals have not ceased to impress.

A while back I did two pieces on “Infuriating LEGO Math” for their TMNT & The Hobbit lines and how they spread various team members across numerous sets. For LEGO completists like me it gets very, very expensive.

yeah I agree. I had to “convince” my son that what he wanted for his birthday was the TMNT set with Leonardo because the completist in me had to have it in our collection. Come to find out there’s a Leo in one of the lower price point sets coming out this year. Gah!

I went all in last year and picked up 4 sets at once to get them all four Turtles along with Krang, Shredder, and Splinter (without any duplicates) and to that the polybag release which had the Kraang-android body and I was all set.

I wouldn’t be to mad, there really wasn’t any indicator during the initial release that we would see further TMNT themed sets. With the movie this summer, I expect maybe one more wave in the winter/early spring of 2015.

good point. But don’t even get me started on the $100 Terror Drome you have to buy to get both Crimson Twins…

Shop on Bricklink if you are looking for just the Minifigures.
