LEGO Minifigures were introduced in 1978 and since then they have occupied a very special place in toy sets for kids (and adults) equally.
Some of the 80s and 90s kids who are adults now still crave these Minifigures and others collect them purely as investments.

Following are the 5 rarest and most expensive LEGO Minifigures that have ever existed:
5. LEGO Exclusive Minifigures Iron Man and Captain America, $1,500
Only 125 of these exclusive promotional Minifigures of Iron Man and Captain America were given out during the 2012 New York Toy Fair.
More Iron Man figures were produced after that but they had different markings, making the toy fair Minifigures unique.
The current price of a sealed set is estimated to be $1,500, with experts saying that value will gain by 19 percent per year in the future.

Experts believe these Minifigures could be worth between $10,000 and $15,000, if and when one goes up for sale (especially considering the subject matter – Star Wars).
