Those interested in distinguishing and identifying authentic, vintage Legos for purchase should look for the following:

  1. -Hollow, rectangular bases (no hollow tubes under bricks)
  2. -Early bricks only came in black, blue, yellow, red, and white.
  3. -Early Lego Kits did not contain roof bricks, wheels, ormini figures.

Are old Lego sets worth anything? Since they're incredibly rare, gold bricks might be the most valuable Lego, but they're not indicative of the value of commercially-sold Lego. “The original set was a limited edition and quickly sold out on the primary market. The secondary market price went from the $500 to over $1,000, and then up to over $5,000.

Where can I find specific Lego pieces? You can find our most popular bricks in the Pick A Brick section of our LEGO® Shop website and they'll sometimes be available at a lower price. You can search by color, category, part name, as well as element and design number to find the pieces you want. Through Pick A Brick, youcan buy up to 999 pieces of each part.
