Dengar - £20 I would have thought no more because of the condition of the card
Ackbar - £20-£25
Prune Face - £10-£14
8D8 - £10-£14
Ree-Yees - £20-£22

These are just my valuations and by no means are they exact... to be honest i've not seen too many Dengar's on a tri-logo - Joe should be able to give you a good valuation that one



I would agree give or take a few pounds on the Carded figures, unfortunately nothing rare or in good enough condition there to be excited about. :(

You have an almost complete loose set there and it's quite unusual for a non collector to have so many Power Of the Force (last 15/17) figures - you must have been quite taken by these toys as a kid to see it through to that range of figures!

You would do yourself some favours by matching up accessories and weapons for each figure correctly by using this list :

That way you can also dust off your memory on the correct names :)

Then just go to ebay, type the names in for each figure in this category : http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Figures-Loose ... p=10&_sc=1 and hit "completed listings" and compare complete original loose figures till you get some averages.

You could then come back here with some prices yourself and see what we think - we will tell you if things are too high or too low!

Good luck :)

Adam,

You must be very happy with your decision to come here for advice.
You have received some cracking tips from various collectors from around the globe.
One of the same points raised was only sell if you absolutely have to, as these are only going to go up in value and you may end up wanting to collect again.
I sold my collection years ago (it wasn't any where near as good as yours) but nearly 2 years ago my son's discovery of Star Wars got me the bug again, i wish i hadn't sold up!
If you do decide to sell, you'd do well to shift them here. The community is incredibly trusting and far safer than Ebay.
Best of luck, i hope you make the right decision for you.
Jez

Well said dude- it helps you have good stuff!
If it was episode 1 figures that would be a different story!

Also if you sell on eBay you will have to give up 10% in eBay fees :(

It's free on here!

If I were you I would keep at least one figure.... I have one beat up yellowed Luke (complete with sabre minus tip- I chewed that off about ten mins after i bought it) I wouldn't sell it for the world.
