Ive dug out my starwars figures that ive had from childhood @ 31 now & a new house in the pipeline ive decided to sell my collection,ive been searching all over ebay intrenet ect but still havnt a clue on what my stuff is worth?I see all these ratings on each figure 85,95??,overall i would say my collection is in really good condition apart from a few that i abused as a lad lol.I have 13 out of the last 17 figures which i was pleased to find out.the figures have been kept in the baggies for years now to keep them in a nice condition

Any advice would be great if u all dont mind pics below

Welcome to the forum!

My advice would be - Get yourself one of these: http://www.figuredisplay.com/

And get those on display ;) You have a great collection and it's a shame to sell - get the bug back and join us!

Hi Adam.

Welcome to the forum!

Your completely right mate, everyone on the forum is very nice and helpful. All genuine,honest and trustworthy people and great to deal with.

I will let some of the seasoned professional price up your stuff as I would be very interested in buying ALL of your last 17 figures and possibly, if available your whole collection.

Good luck!

Adam,

What an awesome collection! I live in hope I will drop on a job lot like this!

There are some great figures there, the condition looks pretty good from the pictures.
With the Last 17 the weapons are critical to the value of the figures- Luke poncho complete is £30, missing the poncho and belt and you are down to £5-10. Similar applies to A Wing Pilot and the Imperial Gunner.
BTW you have the wrong hood on Warok ;)
Get them cleaned up and on display buddy 8)

BTW the Yak face looks totally minty... very nice!

If these are your childhood figures they are priceless!
Now get yourself the rest and complete the set, they will look even better then!

Join us...... :lol:

Thats a nice collection, you have quite a bit of cash in that lot, especially the Yak as pointed out.

if you truely do want to sell get a proper "public" valuation first, dont listen to anyone offering £20 for your Yak ect.

I agree with Andy.

That's why I wanted others to value your collection before I made an offer.

I would happily give you £21 for the Yak :lol:

Theres about £200-250 in the L17 alone, more if you can find the weapons not pictured.
The others proably average out about a fiver each if they are complete (and you sold them seperately)

Thanks for all the advice so far guys n gals

Sadly i am looking to sell all my stuff would love to complete the collection but $$$ out ways it

some of the last 17 have some weapons,unsure if they are the correct ones is there a link i can see what weapons go with what last 17 figures?Luke has no poncho but has the belt & the brown driod is missing a arm!

Ive inspected Yak a little closer his joints are still the head is rock solid wont twist unless using force,prob cus he was a ugly mofo i never played with him lol i havnt a clue how to rate him but i would say top notch there is a mark on his left leg it doesnt look like a chip as its smooth,sadly defo no staff with him

Ive taken some closer pics of him...is yak a highly rated figure to have then?

If it was bought in the uk it would have been a trilogo- these weren't packed with a weapon (except for the miscard but ignore that for now!)

That looks bloody lovely! Yak face is one of the most sort after production figures that was widely available. It wasnt sold on a kenner USA card. It looks an easy afa85, maybe a 90.
If you list it on eBay.com you should get over 200$. make sure you take good photos though- crap photos mean crap finishing price. Also list all the defects clearly.

Hope that helps ;)

Liam I was expecting your last sentence to end:

I set myself a budget per month and have blown it every month!

I'm not so structured- if I have the money and I want it I buy it. If I don't I try and sell a couple of cards off. If not I don't get!

I do find it tough to pass a good deal......

Hi Adam,

I take it you are in the US?

I'm not so good at valuing the loosies but as people have already said you have a nice amount there - your best bet is to sell them on here as if you put them on ebay you'd be handing over a lot in ebay fees.

With regards to the figures on cards, as they are not in the best of shape you should expect about:

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

If the bubbles are cracked or peeling off in any way then you can probably take a good 50-60% off the above prices.

All the best and hope you think about selling them on here

Out of interest Andy do you have a U90 Han for sale
