I Won’t Make You Wait For The Answer…Let’s Pull The Mask Off Of This Ghastly Question!

LEGO® Scooby-Doo is ridiculously expensive due to the horsemen of costly LEGO®: Design, exclusivity, niche, and supply.

The iconic sets came out in August 2015 and were officially a discontinued LEGO® theme by the end of 2017. As to what officially happened and made LEGO® want to discontinue the theme? We are left without a clue! However, there are fans out there who still want to buy these sets — no matter the condition.

What Do We Think Happened To LEGO® Scooby Doo?

One of the monsters finally got him. Just kidding! Like most LEGO® sets that are discontinued, if the entire franchise is sunsetted early, it is most likely due to a lack of sales and demand for the sets.

So why is the price for discontinued Scooby-Doo LEGO® still so high and so expensive? That is simple economics: There will always be LEGO® collectors scouring the interent looking for every piece and theme there ever was created. Scooby-Doo LEGO® was made with a severe lack of supply — whatever is left in good condition is now left for those with the desire, the wallet, and the time to find them. Those die-hard collectors are going to spend whatever it takes to get their hands on those Scooby-Doo sets.

Look To The Minifigures For Answers

LEGO® minifigures, their designs, and molds are the hallmarks of great sets. The LEGO® printing process of pieces and parts is meticulously absurd — and the minifigures are no different. The characters that come alive through ABS plastic are tiny, adorable, colorful, and poseable. These minifigures are like the jewels on a ring. They are, in their own way, shiny like trading cards, and begging to be collected! Just like how the LEGO® Lord of the Rings has expensive sets due to the minifigures, so does a fan-favorite set from the LEGO® Scooby-Doo them.

Prices You Have To See To Believe

Don’t believe me? If you want to see how insane the prices are, just take a moment to Google “LEGO® Scooby-Doo Amazon” or “LEGO® Scooby-Doo eBay.” These prices are scarier than the Ghost of Captain Cutler, fetching $200-$400 per set! If you are willing to spend the pirate’s treasure on getting these sets, be my guest. However, be prepared to spend your entire LEGO® budget on a single set. Happy building gang!
