Would you pay £9,000 for a single solid gold Lego brick?

This single piece of Lego is worth more than your entire collection put together, with maybe your car thrown in to boot

Did you know that between 1979-1981, Lego employees who racked up 25 years of employment at its Germany-based factory were given a 14k gold 2×4 Lego brick? ?? No, us neither.

But we digress. You can actually be the proud owner of one of these glorious bricks without having to travel back in time and enter Lego’s employment – if you’re willing to part with around £9000 of your hard-earned cash that is.

Sellers Brick Envy will even throw in its original display box, although it does have a few signs of wear on it after all these years. Hey, maybe you can get them to knock a few thousand quid off the price?

And before you ask, we’ve already put our (questionable) maths skills to the test and worked out that for a 1500 square foot house, you’ll need around 144,000 of these shimmering blocks. Times that by £9000 quid each (ok, let’s make that £7000 each at wholesale price) and that’s… Well, that’s a lot of money, to put it mildly.

Ah well, we’ll just have to make do with our Lego Star Wars collection for the time being. Pew Pew.
