Boxed Imperial Shuttle Valuation

Post by Monkidoodle »

Hey All,

Just wondering if I could get some advice on a valuation for this. It's boxed, although the box has definitely seen better days. Also seems to be missing a battery terminal - I'm not sure if it's fixable or if the electronics would still even work.

Thanks in advance...

Despite the poor condition you have a Palitoy box there (no Kenner logo) so it is significantly rarer than a Kenner one. Not sure how much that would affect the value though.

When I bought my Kenner one a Palitoy one sold on eBay for about £30 less and I’ve seen a few examples that are comparable. From what I can make out, despite the significant difference in rarity there isn’t a huge gap in value

Sold mine, which was complete with all inserts and used sticker sheet and in far better condition for £400. Which was a fair price really. Quite difficult to shift in general.

Yeah I think your'e right, these are one of those items that are really cool, quite rare, but few people have the space for.
