There’s two ways to determine a reasonable price.

First search on eBay. In the filter click on sold items and completed items. Then search through the items noting the prices of original and complete. You can even reorganise with highest or lowest price first.

Second, buy Jared Cope’s Star Wars Tracker app. You get a month’s trial free when you sign up, and somewhere on this forum is a thread with a code to obtain a monthly discount for SWFUK users.

Blue, hands down, without a doubt, no question and for sure. :lol:

Let's just keep it simple and compare for one cardback Kenner 65A. Over the last year, less sales for the blue saber and for the most part 2x the price compared to the green version.

I’ll be selling a nice complete loose Luke Jedi soon with the blue saber so will be interested to know what price I should ask for it.

For a C8 carded figure I would say a blue sabre Luke Jedi is worth about £250-300, and a green sabre £100-150. That's pretty inline with the Tracker data above.

Yes I have noticed he has gone up recently, as you say he was a sub £50 MOC until a few years ago. But then most other Luke MOCs have gone up too.
