Hey guys,

I have had a few vintage star wars MIB and loose items "in storage" at a Spanish collector friend for around 1 ½ year by now. My initial thought was, that he should sell these veichles for me in a Spanish second hand web site at the highest offer, but he is - and has been - very busy with familily and work life. Therefore he'll send these items to me instead soon.

Since my focus within vintage sw collecting is mainly on the 3,75 inch figures, my knowledge regarding veichles and market prices isn't impressive to say the very least. Cool

I have included a few pics (not mine) of the ESB Millenium Falcon box and ship. I have two questions in that connection:

1. What would a "roughly estimated" market price be?
2. Which parts are missing by first glance? The Jedi training ball it seems and probably more? These items could in theory also be there together with the other veichles??

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Smile

Thanks for your inputs James! Smile Obviously I don't know, which/how many of these parts that you mentioned will be missing? Hopefully I'll know with a few weeks, when I have (hopefully) received the Falcon.

Any suggestions on the value with/without the potential missing parts, which James pictured/described?

a quick look on ebay's sold listings would suggest around the €125 - €180 region.

If you are missing the gunner chair and radar dish support, Larry very kindly sent me some spares, I would be happy to pass them onto you buddy, should you need them Smile

Also the price will depend on if the motor still works as well. I don't think I have any other parts except possibly a glass for the canopy if I know where I put it but yes Chris has the rest of my spare parts Smile.

Thanks very much Chris, much appreciated! Very Happy If these parts are actually missing, we could maybe work out a trade or similar? Are both the chair and radar dish complete? I'll e-mail you later today.

Yeah I know about the fact, that many MFs have motors, which don't Work. I'm sure though, that it can be fixed quite easily, if the motor doesn't Work. At least if you know the right persons... Wink

In case the glass for the canopy is missing, I would be interested in purchasing it from you - or Trading - in case you could be interested?

That's awesome Chris. That would be a GREAT help for me in order to being able to complete the Falcon. Very Happy I discovered Yesterday, that Millenium Falcon parts are really expensive - especially on ebay...Sad  

I really hope, that some of the parts which are not visible in the pics I got from the seller will be there. The Falcon appears to be in overall very goood condition. I bought a Little less than 20 figures from Joaquin (the seller) back then also, which I had sent to myself in contrast to all the veichles. All of those were in fantastic shape - and most Poch/PBP. There even was a truely rare C9+ complete Poch Ugnaught in there. Very Happy
