Factory Defect Value

Postby VikiRin » Fri Apr 14, 2017 11:46 pm

Hello everyone! I'm new here was looking for a possible value to a vintage At-St Driver I have. I recently inherited all of our childhood toys from my dad after my mothers passing. I have a LOT of vintage SW toys. I remember playing with them as a child but after a few years they were packaged away into storage, never tampered with or altered. After inheriting them back I put them into storage for a few years and only recently decided to go through them. I went through the action figures (I only had about 23 total) all of them loose. I didn't catch it the first few times, but today I picked up my At-St driver and realized he has two right arms! I'm remarkably amazed at this and I can't seem to be able to find any information on this anywhere. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I'm NOT looking to sell it, but I would like to know if it has value. One man told me some people boil the figure and switch arms. I know for a FACT that never happened. I was a kid then, I couldn't care less about their value at that age, and my parents never could understand my obsession with those toys or my comics and other action figures for that matter so they wouldn't have touched it either. Anyone have any input or thoughts? Much appreciated everyone and may the force be with you :)!

Hello and welcome.

These are known errors and whilst weird and not too common, they're not massively valuable loose like this. Someone might pay a few extra quid if they have an AT ST focus or collect factory error figures.

You won't be retiring anytime soon I'm afraid.
