Vintage Star Wars Price Guide - Part Two

eb6517f5-1dd3-4cf1-ba2d-e06bb61c4ff3

Hopefully by now you've seen our previous guide to vintage Star Wars vehicles and action figures. Well, as promised, here's the latest update showcasing a range of Star Wars collectables recently sold at Vectis Auctions Thornaby. The aim of our regular Star Wars price guides are to give you a up to date reflection of current market conditions, so you can find out whether that Walrus Man you've been holding on to for years is worth £100 or £10!

In this edition we've got a great selection of action figures, many in near mint condition. All of the descriptions are taken from the Vectis catalogue and all were sold as part of the Dolls, Teddy Bears and TV Related sale in August. Keep checking Collectors Club of Great Britain to read more Star Wars prices and let us know in the comments below if you would like us to start producing price guides for other classic TV and film collectables... Transformers, anyone?!
