Vintage Star Wars Price Guide

f9fc316b-948d-4ebc-a0a6-80f2195e0bb2

Arguably one of the most talked about and buoyant areas of TV and film collecting is vintage Star Wars figures and vehicles. Not only did the original Star Wars figures set the standard for movie tie-ins, they've been incredibly collectable over the years and can now command prices into the thousands for a particularly rare figure.

So, to keep you abreast of the latest prices for Star Wars figures, we're embarking on a new project here at Collectors Club of Great Britain - a Star Wars Price Guide. Over the coming months, we'll keep you updated with the latest auction prices achieved for vintage and modern Star Wars figures/vehicles in the UK, which will hopefully give you a decent guide as to what your collection might be worth or what you should be paying at auction. Eventually, as the months go on, you'll be able to see trends in prices and whether a particular figure is becoming more or less valuable.

The items below are all taken from recent auctions at Vectis and Aston's, with descriptions taken from both. The prices quoted are the hammer prices and don't include any commission or VAT, so please bear that in mind.
