I also have a couple of loose weapons and a question about Dengar's rifle. From my research online I believe that Dengar's rifle is identical to the Snow troopers? Are you aware of any differences or variations? Only I have two of them that have been seen in the photos with the relevant characters. But one of them is different from the other when you look closely and I can't find one like this anywhere online? I've added a couple of close up side by side photos below which appear the same on first glance but they are quite different.
- the end is missing on one.
- there are 3 indentations on the barrel on one and 4 on the other.
- the magazines are thicker on one.
- the trigger is a slightly different shape.
- some of the detailing on the body and sight are subtly different.
- the end of the butt is more sharply shaped on one and rounded on the other.

Just wanted to pick your brains was all? And before anyone suggests it........they were both purchased in the 70's and 80's by me as a child so both are authentic!!

P.s when I was typing Vader on here my iPhone autocorrect changed it to Father!! Good job they weren't around in 1980!!!!!

Cheers folks!!

I don't think the last spear is from Star Wars. Wicket and Romba have spears but they're different.
The axe is from Gamorrean Guard.
I'm not sure about the rifles, other than who you say they belong to.

Your figures look mostly in very good condition.

You have a v1 and a v2 Imperial Hoth rifle as cross referenced against TIG (imperialgunnery.com). Only your 2 is missing the end.

As for the prices having seen them close up I stand by most of my original valuations. I don't think your Boba Fett will fetch more than £25 because he has some paint loss to the chest. Your R2 unit has some damage to the sticker and the Stormtroopers aren't as white as I had thought. Your DV, OWK and Luke are priced lower because they are missing the tips. But your Han Solo, Han Hoth and Tie Fighter Pilot are in great condition so could fetch more. All in all a nice little childhood collection.

Wish I hadn't garage saled mine. :(

Just to echo what has been said before but £250-£300 is a very fair valuation for them all. The blaster with Boba is now worth more than the figure with that much paint loss. £20 or a bit more is where I see him in that condition. Stick it all up on the For Sale thread here for £300 and I think it'll go quickly enough.

Nothing blinding there to get excited about.....except for you! Personally, for the £300 I'd pack them back up and stick them back in the loft. You're never going to get less for them (I doubt) and unless you need it to pay the mortgage anything you buy will feel hollow next to that bundle of childhood nostalgia.
