Comparable Set Analysis

The Lego Master Builder Series sub theme is much harder to evaluate as currently there has only been one retired set. That said, what a set it was! Lego Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City (75222) retired in Dec 2019 with an RRP of £299.99 and is currently valued at more than double that amount, close to £700, delivering annualised growth of a stunning 26%.

Set Number Set Name Retired Date RRP Current Value Total Growth Annualised Growth
75222 Betrayal at Cloud City December 2019 £299 £681 127% 26%


What’s not to love about what appears to be another blockbuster Star Wars LEGO set? If we were being picky then the lack of track record in the sub theme could be seen as a small negative (despite the stellar performance of the one retired set) but in a general theme this strong and with such a track record we think this will prove to be another strong investment.

Coming up to 3 years shelf life but expected to be available for the rest of this year, and most likely next year too, we would look to future discounts to purchase this set (historically it has been included in the 20% sale at John Lewis earlier this year).
