A Future Collectible?

Some things never go out of fashion, for instance, amazing rock music. And this LEGO mini 1970 Fender Stratocaster walks the line across three collector interests: Toys, Rock, & LEGO.

So how do we know this will be a future collectible?

  • We can predict that this LEGO set will have future editions, yet collectors will want v1 and this is it. So a pristine boxed version could be valuable to the right collectors in the future.
  • A big question is, how saturated will the market be? Sadly, a lot of people are probably going to pick this set up – but how many will be able to resist having what is a great looking piece of LEGO on their shelves? Not many. And because of that, in 20-plus years, when the forty-somethings hit their sixties, this will undoubtedly have appeal. And if you can keep it boxed and in your family for 50-ish years, come 2070, it may have a lot more value.
  • Additionally, if you can get a collection of famous guitarists to sign the box who played a 70s Fender Stratocaster, the value might just sky-rocket.

For a $99 investment now, on top of 20-to-50 years of patience, this LEGO set could be worth a fortune if kept sealed and has signatures.

Available from LEGO.com now for $99.
