Made it caps Andy good idea! Will ask Edd, perhaps he can make the stickied topic icon stand out more if he can't colour the text.

Hi Joe, I'm new to the site and found this very helpful. I did notice that there was no mention of framed Star Wars art work, is that not something that is looked at on here? I have a piece and I'm not wanting to sell it I am merely looking to see how much it may be worth?

Thanks

Hi Dino,

Do you mean original Star Wars art work (like film story boards or cartoon cels?) or something like blueprints for toys/packaging art work?

Original art work like the above examples can range from a tenner (an ewok/droids cartoon cel) to big bucks (any original artwork for the Vintage toy line for example could be worth a lot of money)

You can see a lot of original artwork in this thread - http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1037817/

Perhaps have a flick through and if something looks familiar to your own item(s) you can contact the members there to find out about values?

Hope that helps a little, it's not my area of expertise at all but all I would say is any custom art will only be worth as much as the original commission (and probably even less when buying second hand) and reproduction/reprints are virtually worthless.

Joe

*If it's none of the above then feel free to open a new thread with pictures and some information and perhaps the guys can help out! :)

Great effort and a good read I would have needed when I started collecting last year, but unfortunately I have only read this now. :)

Why useless? I just clicked a lot of links and most took me where I was thinking I would get, but it seems the eBay links are all showing the same items. Other than that it seems fine?
