Online auction house Catawiki is expecting an unopened LEGO Millennium Falcon to fetch between £3,000 and £4,000 at auction.

Average prices of LEGO sets have been increasing 12 per cent every year since 2000 and the Millennium Falcon, now valued at over £3,000, has enjoyed 780 per cent increase in value.

“This particular set is a collector’s dream as the 2007 Millennium Falcon is not only one of the most spectacular pieces ever made by LEGO but also one of the most sought after," said Gerben van Ijken, Catawiki’s specialist LEGO auctioneer.

"To find one that is still in a mint condition, unopened box is incredibly rare and makes this lot particularly special. We expect to see a flurry of bids when this goes to auction.”

The highest bid currently stands at £3,500, and the auction closes on February 26th 2016.
