This year promises to be the year of Star Wars, with the latest film in the franchise, The Force Awakens, due to hits cinemas in December. The sense of anticipation is already building and the buzz around Star Wars is positively electic. Of course, vintage Star Wars toys have been causing a buzz for years, with people willing to pay big money for rare pieces.

So, with all this excitement in mind, we've put together a brief guide showing you some of the prices recently paid at Vectis Auctions for a range of action figures. Most people tend to think that Star Wars action figures are worth thousands when still in their packaging and for some that's certainly the case. However, as you can see below, there are still plenty of budget options for those just starting out collecting Star Wars figures.

Even iconic figures like C-3PO, Han Solo and Princess Leia can be snapped up for less than £100 - particularly if you're not too fussy about them being totally mint.
