On 28 July a Lego-certified store is due to open in Sandton, Johannesburg, after years of lobbying by local company Great Yellow Brick Co.
Lego has such stores in 20 other countries, but none yet anywhere in Africa.
The store will target, among others, adult collectors willing to spend big money on huge sets, some exclusively available through formal channels.
These are the ten most expensive sets the store will sell on launch, ranked by price.
7,500 pieces, 84cm long, and details that include a "stud-firing bowcaster" for Chewbacca.
