How much are my LEGOs worth?

The rule of thumb for unsorted Lego is between 6$ and 12$ per pound. If the bricks are sorted by color or include lots of desirable pieces, they are worth more. The value of Lego Minifigures varies greatly. Rare minifigures from a popular theme like Star Wars can sell for 5-10$ a piece.

Can you sell LEGOs?

Selling old LEGO bricks and sets is a great way to turn unwanted plastic bricks into extra cash. Some LEGOs are worth a few dollars, while others are worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. It's easy to sell LEGOs but you do need to do a bit of work to make sure you sell them for as much as they are worth.
