    UCS Falcon... $1,500... but I've paid more per part for smaller sets, so in that respect is isn't soooo bad...
    Well put :)

    Mine would be Minifigures Series 1 box - $370

    It's a tie for me.
    $625 for 3450 Statue of Liberty
    $625 for 10182 Cafe Corner

    Yes, thank you :) 10143 is what I

    Most expensive to date for me was the 8043 motorized excavator at about $180. Before that, it was the 10210 IF at $150.

    There are some older sets I would really like to have, such as the Taj Mahal, Eiffel Tower and 8285 Tow Truck. But I will probably never have them, as I simply can't bring myself to pay the premium over what they cost new. I will definitely buy the Tower Bridge at some point soon, so that will tentatively be my most expensive set purchased.

    10212 at £250 sooooo worth it though.
  • AvengerDrAvengerDr Member Posts: 453
    ^ some months ago the 10212 was on sale on for £155 + shipping... Now it's at 160£ + shipping.

    I´ve just spent 250€ (about 320$) for a sealed Chrome C-3PO! I know it´s not a set, but it beats most set-prices;)

    250 on Imperial Shuttle. May the Fourth got me.
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    £305 on Cafe Corner, money well spent.
    The horrible, horrible SSD is a close second. Husband talked me into it/won it in a little competition with me yesterday. Sigh. God knows where it's gonna go!

    Green Grocer - $410 (I think), thanks to sidersdd.

    I was coming out of a five-year dark ages and found that a lovely series of these crazy things called "modulars" were now available and that I had missed the first couple. I fell in love with the aesthetic of the GG instantly and just had to have it. It was scary to find myself needing this set so relentlessly.

    It was only the second time that I had ever paid above retail for a set.

    I recently purchased Green Grocer and Cafe Corner. They were both used and 90% complete. I paid around $400 for each.

    If my husband is reading this - make sure you read the rest of the thread to know that I didn't spend the most.
  • LegopantsLegopants GermanyMember Posts: 2,093
    250 quid for DS (after VIP point reduction). Ordered it online from Lego UK instead of the German site and saved about 100 pounds in doing so (retails here at 420 euros). Don't really understand the massive difference in pricing.

    @Savage_Steel: 305 GBP for Café Corner - you lucky lucky lady :-)

    I think I did it last November. I won easily an auction for an open box, but still-sealed-in-bags Monorail Transport Base (#6991) for around $660. I can't recall the exact price without looking up my eBay account history (which I currently can't do right now), but definitely, this is the most I have spent on a single set. And well-worth it, I think, too.

    $212 on Warehouse Deals for a Tower Bridge with a damaged box, but i negated that with a lot of points from my amazon visa. Out of pocket, my winner would probably be Pet Shop which was the first set I ever bought!
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    @legopants - yep, very lucky - was in the auction at the Brickish AGM, think everyone else had one already :)
  • The_Brick_BuilderThe_Brick_Builder Member Posts: 658
    Mine currently is $500 for a NISB Green Grocer.

    The Black Pearl is the most expensive set I've purchased so far at $130CAN, most expensive purchase was just shy of $400CAN.
  • EricEric Queensland, AustraliaMember Posts: 376
    AU$400 on the Grand Carousel. AU$312 on the Tower Bridge, and AU$200 1:10 Enzo Ferrari.

    No Regrets.

    Since Ive been catching up all year, I have been buying quantity. The most I spent on one set was $90 for a sealed Battle of Endor. I spend a lot, but never on one. But now Im about to start going for the big stuff. Still need to work up the gut to spend $200 on one lego. Thats tattoo money in my eyes.

    Have any Lego tatt's? Would definitely be very cool :)

    Mine would have to be 7740, which cost just over £300 ($484). Even then the e-bay description stated the seller wasn't sure all the pieces were there! Just as well he did, otherwise the bidding price might have gone sky-high, and as it turns out the pieces were all there. I'd like to have bought more old Lego trains but they're just so prohibitively expensive.
  • BoiseStateBoiseState Member Posts: 804
    Haha, I'm not the only one that uses phrases like "tat money". Almost as addictive as Lego.
  • ethodaethoda Member Posts: 5
    $150 for the moduler shoppe corner
  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    $1500 for a sealed first run 10179 about 12 months agao. Never to be opened so looking for an opened set to buy next!

    You may well spend as much, if not more to get an opened set now. The new ones are over 2k and rising...

    £500 about 14 months ago on a 10179.....and after building it, don't begrudge a penny! Will go well with my yet to be shipped SSD & IS.....not sure where though!

    Best set so far Reminded me of this video I saw:

    so far I spent £50 on set (New x-wing), but buying the new jabba's palace in august I think that is in the £100 range!!!

    Nah, if i ever did get one, it wouldn't be anything crazy. Maybe just a stormtrooper mini-figure.
  • AFFOL_Shellz_BellzAFFOL_Shellz_Bellz Member Posts: 1,263
    (cough, cough) $800 for a fan designed base for the Statue of Liberty #3450. Then today $375 each for Market Street and Cafe Corner. And if my hubby reads this I'll just hand him the spreadsheet of all he's bought.
  • GalactusGalactus NLMember Posts: 260
    That's definitely 10030 ISD for me. I got it as a second hand MISB for €600 two years ago.
