Advice on loft find please..

Post by Eubos »

Hello,

I’ve today found around 30+ unboxed original Kenner figures in the loft in what appear to be good condition with various weapons etc. I wondered if anyone would be good enough to offer advice on what my next step should be if I was interested in looking to sell these? Any help appreciated .. thanks in advance

Hi and welcome! Your first step would be to take some good photos of each figure and the weapons. Close-ups of weapons would really help.

This is what I’ve found so far .. all seem to be in excellent condition apart from R2-D2 who is missing a leg.

I’d also like to apologise, I’ve Literally just seen the post giving excellent tips on knowing what figure is what and how to match up their attachments etc .. I’ll give that a good read

If anyone wants to offer any advice though, it would be most appreciated

Thanks

Also check the country of origin (COO) mark on the back of the leg. Some are more valuable than others, and like me some people many be looking for different ones to complete a line up.

Yes, please. A list would be great - my advice (not sure about that other thread you mentioned) would be to pick the few in the best condition (focusing on the regular sellers e.g., farmboy luke if complete te with saber, boba Fett) and get them graded. The return on investment is generally worth it and from my quick skim, I think you might get lucky with a couple.
