It’s not often that you hear about a LEGO minifig that’s worth about $1,000, but sure enough one exists. Mr. Gold is his name and yes, he is going for $1,000 on eBay.
You can’t just run out and expect to buy Mr. Gold though as Lego’s collectable minifigures all come in opaque sealed packages, but you still could find one. Only 5,000 of this particular minifig exist and it’s part of LEGO’s Series 10 minifigure collection. You can find out more about Mr. Gold on LEGO’s official minifig page.
