In a need for some information.

Postby riddlerius » Sun Mar 19, 2017 11:42 am

Hi, I am new to this forum and would really appreciate if someone can shed some light about this vintage star wars skateboard. My sister bought it from flee market for her kids and I just saw it last night, and I am interested is it a star wars collectible and if so, how much is it worth? Thank you for your help. Also, I searched trough ebay, google and first post from this board to try it to find myself, but with no luck.

You can tell from the shape of the deck that it's not vintage, it is mid 90s at the earliest, possibly a lot more recent. Skateboards weren't that shape in the 80s or even early 90s.

^^this!

Deck, trucks, wheels....all say 90/00's! If it was 80's it would have illuminous yellow gullwing trucks, tail bubble, grab rails and the board would be a different shape altogether! Man I loved my variflex board! 8)

Thanks! I really don't remember the exact shape of the board in 80", but I remember having somewhat similar looking board (not star wars) in around 88'. Also, I was little baffled with Lucas logo only on a board.
Thank you for your replies, is better to ask when you don't know. To summarise, its not a collectible?

I don't know if it's collectible or not but I'd say definitely not vintage, boards looked like this well into the 80's

Yeah you really didn't get decks with noses the same shape as the tail (as in you can't tell which end is which) until 93 or 94. I used to be a skater :)

It may well still be worth something, see if you can find one on eBay.

Santa Cruz skateboards did a full range of star wars decks about 5 years ago they are more for display than use
