Oh jeezus, I've just had a good read of this thread and as Todd said it hurts. I saw this listing on Ebay au and considered contacting the seller to explain why it is a tad over priced but decided against it and whaddaya know here tis.

Starwarscollection, you'd do well to take a breath and read through the advice given by the members on here, vintage Star Wars items are a complete minefield when it comes to value, everything from how complete, variations and condition play a huge part in what makes one item worth significantly more than another albeit that they may look the same to a beginner.

The members on here have collectively 100's of years worth of experience behind them and even with that wealth of knowledge it can be hard to place values on certain items. Bottom line you have a fairly common set of figures in less than desirable condition and mostly incomplete that are readily available any time via places like Ebay and facebook in their 1000's.

You are also referencing a very vague article that is almost designed to create hysteria in anyone who has an old bunch of figures buried in their basement. The figures mentioned are of a particular manufacturer and are only worth a large amount due to their packaging or variation.

At a glance and referring only to the Star Wars items in your auction (as I have no idea on the other items), I would value your collection as a lot at around $200-$250. If you sold them individually you may get more around $300 or a bit over.

Carbon dating? This comment alone make me thing this is a have on but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

If they are of sentimental value to you then keep them but also bare in mind that most members on here are collectors first and while it is nice to know that these items hold some monitory value that usually plays second place to the satisfaction of owning them.

Obvious time waster, however amusing they were. I think it's better for everyone that we part company now before it gets out of hand. Sorry for putting an end to the fun :P

You should set up a "Comedy Section" on the "Board Index" and archive all this in there.

This might not be the end for our friend from Australia..he sent me an email claiming that the ban was discrimination against someone who just talks too much and that he was enjoying the forum..so I've replied offering to unban him if he relists his auction at 99cents and lets the market decide what it's worth :)

That's good to hear he's ok! I think everyone deserves a second chance! He's probably not a bad spud :)
If he takes up your offer I might even place a bid if he starts it at 99 cents :)
