Vintage suits even increased in value during the 2008 financial crisis.

But margins vary from minus 50% to over 600%, depending on the product.

According to the Moscow University of Economics, Russia, plastic bricks for the construction of famous landmarks, movies or seasonal holidays have the highest annual growth.

Unpackaged sets, especially those that are rare, limited edition, or made quite a while ago, also work well.

The most expensive include Star Wars’ Millennium Falcon and Death Star II, as well as the Taj Mahal.

Victoria Dobrynskaya of HSE said: “Sets made 20 to 30 years ago are nostalgic for Lego fans, and prices have skyrocketed.

“But one has to be a true Lego fan to sort through the nuances of the market and see the investment potential of a set.”

Experts analyzed 2,322 sets between 1987 and 2015.
