Hi , don't know who to ask about this but I thought I'd try here . I collected all the original figures when the first trilogy came out and when I moved out from my parents they went In their loft . Then just before the second trilogy started to be made they moved house and sold all my collection at a car boot sale ....very cheaply !!! But ....I kept all the weapons in a small tin which for some reason I took with me when I left home and had forgotten about , I have just gone through my loft and found them !! They are all 100% guaranteed originals as they have been in storage since 1985( in various lofts ) my question to you is what would be the best way to go about selling them as they aren't any good to me as all my figures went years ago . Am I right to assume as they are guaranteed original , they would be highly sort after ?? Or shall I just throw them in the bin ?
Thanks for your time in reading this .

Firstly  welcome Tony.

The value of vintage weapons varies depending upon scarcity and condition. Common ones tend to sell for £2 - £3.00 each. At the other extreme I've seen black palace blasters and black Endor blasters sell for around £20.00 each, so don't put them in the bin!  lol!

If you listed them on an online auction site they should find their level as they are always in demand with collectors and dealers.

Steve's right, price varies on condition and scarcity. Is there any Yellow lightsabers in there, I'll gladly take them off your hands for you  Very Happy

Hi Tony,

They are certainly not rubbish and would be a shame to end their days in the bin after making it this far! There are many collectors out there who are always looking for genuine vintage weapons. If you have the time and energy to list them for auction I am sure they would all sell if you start at .99.

You might be surprised at just how much some of them fetch.

Cheers, Jared.

I don't think you can add an image for a week after registering.

Too many ugly people put their faces on and rush off.
