Lego Minecraft The Village 21128 Lego Lego

21128 LEGO Minecraft The Village. After being fully released in 2011, Minecraft became one of the best-selling video games of all time, played by users across the globe on a range of different platforms.  It did not take LEGO long to join forces with Minecraft® and the first set; 21102 LEGO Minecraft Micro World, was released in 2012 at the Ideas stage. 

3 more models were then released before LEGO announced it would become a theme complete with Minifigures. The latest set 662105 Minecraft Miner and Creeper was released in 2022. Many Minecraft sets are now retired, with larger models harder to now acquire.

Set Details

One of the larger sets released was 21128 Minecraft The Village, consisting of 1600 pieces and aimed at builders aged 8+. 11 Minifigures are also included, Steve, Alex, zombie and a zombie villager, plus a Creeper™, Enderman, Pig, Baby Pig, Iron Golem and 2 Villagers. 

Released in 2016, The Village consists of a range of different buildings, including Library, Guard Tower, Blacksmiths and Farm which can be built separately and joined. To give access to the interiors, some buildings fold out whilst others have a liftable roof.  The end result resembles villages seen throughout the Minecraft game play. 

The build is not complicated and will probably appeal to a younger audience or die hard Minecraft fans.

Investment Potential

The value of the set is partially underpinned by the value of the 11 minifigures included which on their own have a current value of just over £100. The three unique minifigures included provide the majority of this value due to their rarity.

Comparable Set Analysis

When looking at retired Minecraft sets of similar size within this sub-theme we can see that the majority of sets have had an annualised growth of between 15 and 20% per year for the last 5 years. 

The clear outlier to this is 21137 The Mountain Cave which has had annualised growth of 50% since it retired in December 2018! Congratulations if you own one of those.

This set has already more than doubled in value in the 5 years since it was retired from retail sale, and there is no reason not to expect it to do close to the same again in the next 5 years, making it a decent set for investment. Going forward, we expect this sub-theme, and this set specifically, to continue with their strong price growth. 

We are currently projecting an average annualised growth of 12% for the next 5 year, giving the set a projected value of £749 in 5 years time, £324 (76%) more than its current value.
