Vintage valuation please?

Hello,
I am new to the forum. Could someone please give me a valuation for these items? As you can see they are all boxed, not played with and have been in a wardrobe since my childhood. I’m now 43 :)

If someone would kindly help me that would be great!

I also have individual figures, and memorabilia from childhood.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Sean

Hi Sean, welcome to the forum! you have some very nice items there, you will probably be bombarded with private messages so I would advise avoiding a hasty sale and working out what each is worth before agreeing to anything (if you are indeed looking to sell.)

I am interested in a couple (would love the Snow Speeder) so I will not give an opinion on value, but you're talking hundreds of pounds each for the unused boxed vehicles you have posted. Look forward to seeing what else you have! And I also hope if you are looking to sell, you offer them for sale here.

Hi both,

I am looking to sell, I’m just looking for honest prices because they were just my childhood toys.

Are there prices in mind? Because I genuinely don’t know where to start...?

I have a few boxed toys with paperwork but I have played with them.

Best,
Sean

Hi Sean

More images of what you have would go along way regardless of condition they will still have a value and probably more sort after than you might expect. Sorry I can't help with values but you are probably looking above £100+ each for the x wing and snowspeeder as boxed used in good condition are normaly anything from £50 to £100. As yours look unused it's difficult as these don't often come up. Maybe £250- £300 for the ATAT but these are ball park figures so get more values before making a decision.

Sorry I could not be more help

They look really good Charlton. You'll get a good idea on eBay by looking at ones in similar condition to yours that have sold previously. You have to take into consideration fees if selling on eBay and asshole bidders on occasion. And in an auction sometimes you can be disappointed.

Some of them look super from what I can see , but you need to photograph everything meticulously because condition is everything. Eg. All sides of boxes , all flaps etc - as these all determine price people will be prepared to pay. It will be well worth your time going to the trouble of doing so.

Welcome! That's quite a find- some great items.

I'd estimate:

AT-AT £350
SLAVE 1 £275
X-Wing £250
TIE Interceptor £250
Snowspeeder £200
Jawa/modern X-Wing- no idea I'm afraid

Thank you both,

Really helpful, I will upload more photos shortly.

I see online that the boxed Jawa at Auction which was loose in the box, between $400-$600. My Jawa, has not been touched, still fixed to the box.

That Jawa is the real gem- I wouldn’t be surprised at £500

@Lee Bullock will have a good idea

Actually, is it sealed? If so maybe £7-1000 but wait for Lee to confirm

In the light of day looking on my computer monitor I would say Cazza's valuations are right on the money from what I can see . Maybe a bit more on eBay, less fees

I just wanted to say that @Charlton is a stand up guy to deal with, I bought a couple of items from him last night and I believe the rest will be put up for sale here shortly.

Having seen more detailed pics of the X-Wing box, I would say around the £200 mark would be about right. Mint box would be around £250.
