It may not raise eyebrows among Star Wars enthusiasts that in 2007, LEGO® crafted a pure gold C-3PO. In fact, they manufactured only five, making this the most elusive LEGO® minifigure in existence. These golden treasures weren’t up for sale upon their creation; they were initially distributed as part of an exclusive sweepstakes. Those who were fortunate enough to win these precious figures certainly hold a treasure of substantial value – one such minifigure was sold for an impressive $300,000 in 2008.
What Does It Look Like? Imagine This In Shiny 14K Gold!
While the likelihood of discovering one of these golden wonders in your collection may be slim, it’s certainly worth being vigilant for Star Wars minifigures composed of sterling silver, gold, and other precious metals. Heck, any minifigure in any shiny, or chrome form is a must-have!
