Default Best way to sell Vintage Star Wars

Stopped by my childhood home and found a bunch of vintage star wars figures and vehicles. All are open and were played with. What's the best way to estimate value ? Do they need to have correct accessories? Come to think of it...do these still have value????

you still might find some crazy star wars people on ebay who will buy them. if not that, then call up your local comic store.

Yeah I figure I probably missed my window a few years ago when the new movies came out.

not at all. The original toys have held up quite well. All depends on exactly what you have, and the condition.
Comic store is a good suggestion. Especially one that sells old action figures.

I say Ebay them, with nice clear pictures. You'll probably do better there than a local comic store.


I still have all my Star Wars toys, opened and well-played-with, secure in my C-3PO carrying case. Wouldn't have them any other way.

C3PO case? Did you keep your Barbie accessories in there too? There was only one case worth having and it was of Darth Vader.

I've gone the Ebay route, but you are stuck w/the masses on there. There are a A LOT of Star Wars items and a lot of them are graded so that hurts you right from the start (and all the NPB's) Amazon is also a decent place to list (no fees until sold), but like fleabay, there are ton of items listed. I'd say if you do go the ebay route don't do an auction do BIN/BO. That figure that could have a lot of value may only go for a dollar. I have had some good success on amazon, you just need to do some research either way.

I actually found the Vader case with the rest of the stuff. Brought back some memories.

Am I the only person who went through more than a few Darth Vader figures by trying to pull his helmet off to see his face? Damn you The Empire Strikes Back!

I would also suggest Craigslist with items like this. No fees, however will get tons of tire kickers.
