Help with Sand People

Postby stefkiwi84 » Thu May 17, 2018 1:15 pm

Hello all,
I am new to this amazing site, so apologies if this is not the correct place to post this. :D

My family will shortly be emigrating and we are clearing out all of my partners vintage Star Wars collection as we have decided not to take them with us (there is ALOT!). We are currently having problems matching cards with figures as to sell them I don't want to make a mistake and mislead a buyer.

We have three Sand People, one without a head!! LOL. We have one weapon and two cards. One card is the European ROTJ and the other is Empire Strikes Back/Palitoy. I have read on your helpful site that there was a major variation on the ROTJ figures in that he has hollow tubes on his face but none of my figures have this so I am not sure if they go with the European card? Also, the figures without a head and one of the others has clear markings on his legs but the other has only a very very faint marking of 1977, totally different to the other two. Does this mean he isn't genuine? My partner insists he got them all around the same era but I am very confused with this.

Thank you, this really helps. There is so much to go through, I cannot believe this stuff has been in our loft all these years without a thought. I now appreciate how much these are worth and how there are still avid collectors out there. :D

yeh some can be worth a lot of money but please don't think that because its vintage star wars your sitting on a gold mine, I personally use ebay sold auction listings to gauge a price, for the 3 figures in your picture your probably looking at 30-40 pounds, if it was 3 yakface's then it would be 300-400, best bet is to take pictures of all you have and put them in the valuation section on here, loads of people will be able to help you, or like I said ebay sold auctions is good too.
