Found few of my childhood SW figures, won't sell them, but value intrests me

Postby Kid_78 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 1:16 am

Hello all!

I recently found some of my old vintage childhood SW figures. There is propably something like 20 years since I last saw them. I have been playing with them in the sandpot in the 80's. I remember also an Darth Vader- and Chewbacca figure, but wasn't able to find them. Could be that they have been left to some friend years ago...

Some info about these figures:

The Stormtrooper has quite much wear, very loose and yellow'ish limbs. It has been in a lot of use. No weapon left. 1977 stamp.

Luke with Stormtrooper outfit is in better shape. Limbs are tight but little bit yellow'ish. Some small wear and scratches. Helmet is orginal bit no weapon left. 1984 stamp.

R2D2 is the pop up lightsaber version. Sticker is quite dirty and has some wear, other wise it's in nice condition, no warped legs and they are tight. Plastic is white. Orginal light green lightsaber is intact. 1977 stamp.

I will never sell these figures, they have too much good memories. But the value of them intrests me, how much would they be worth?


PS. Also found very nice condition Big Jim figure with commando and special force/diver outfits and accessories.

Nice find, listen to Poncho and complete the loose run!

You should have a look for Luke’s blaster as well. :)

Most of the value in your figures in that condition will be in the accessories themselves. It still shocks me even now how much R2’s pop-up Lightsaber can sell for on eBay :shock:

You’re not still banging on about that pop-up Lightsaber you need. You’re like a broken record :lol:

Thanks for the tips. I may look for the blasters and maybe a couple of friends for them to stand on the shelf. What price is ok for a mint removable limbs C-3PO in a never opened Kenner baggie?

Approx £15-£20 for the C3PO
Do look long and hard for Luke Stormtrooper blaster, now very expensive to buy and will make another great figure complete.
Good luck if you chose to pursue a loose run.

Only if it came packed with the solid black blaster and the Tri-logos didn’t always come packed with these. Otherwise it’s just another £10 Imperial Blaster instead of the £100 POTF variant. :(

True, good point.
Star Wars doesn’t have to be expensive!
