Future Collectibles: Mini LEGO 1970 Fender Stratocaster
When LEGO unveiled its new line-up targeting adults, one set stood out as a possible future collectible. And that set was the miniature replica of a legendary 1970s Fender Stratocaster guitar and 65 Princeton reverb amplifier.
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 why do we think 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 box who played a 70s Fender Stratocaster, the value might just skyrocket.
For a $99 investment now, on top of 20-to-50 years of patience, this LEGO set could be worth far more than what you paid for it – just factoring in inflation.
Available on Amazon for $99.
