No pop culture phenomenon has captured the imaginations of fans quite like Star Wars has. Some fans have massive and impressive collections of Star Wars toys. Of course, some Star Wars collectables are worth more than others. Here are ten Star Wars toys that are worth thousands of dollars.
10. Sideshow Collectibles Obi-Wan Kenobi – $2,000
This figure is certainly not something kids would be playing with. Only 200 were made, and because it is no longer in production it can sell for much than $2,000 on the secondary market.
9. Double-telescoping Figures – $2,000 to $18,000
It’s very difficult to find one of these figures in mint condition, but if you do find one you can expect to pay thousands of dollars for this culturally significant toy. Loose figures alone are valued at $2,000. The Obi-Wan and Luke figures were equipped with the same feature, and they command similarly exorbitant prices. One tiny piece of extra plastic makes these figures worth thousands more than the more common single-telescoping versions.
8. Yak Face – $2,300
This figure was never released in the USA. Instead, it was only released in Canada, Australia and Europe. Yak Face briefly appeared in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. It was the last figure produced by Kenner due to declining sales, so it was simply shipped out to stores and quickly forgotten. However, hardcore collectors have driven up the price of this figure substantially.
7. Lego Millennium Falcon – $4,000 to $5,000
Multiple Millennium Falcon Lego sets have been released since this one, including The Force Awakens one currently in stores, but they are nowhere near as valuable because they aren’t nearly as rare and they are much, much smaller. This set is worth a lot now, but if Lego releases another Ultimate Collector’s Set Millennium Falcon, expect the prices of these 2007 sets to plummet.
6. Vlix From Star Wars: Droids – $6,000
It also has the distinction of being one of the only valuable toys based on something other than the original trilogy of Star Wars films. Despite the character’s lack of popularity, the figure is still worth about $6,000 if it is still in the package or “on card.” Vlix’s last name, Oncard, is a reference to the action figure’s rarity and value. Clever.
5. Empire Strikes Back Medical Droid – $10,000
Someone must be a big fan of the medical droid FX-7 because a 1980 Palitoy figure of the robot sold for over $10,000 at an auction just last year. The figure was in mint condition and unpunched, which drove up the value significantly. The toy sold for much more than its original appraised value.
4. Unpainted Boba Fett Prototype – $17,000
However, the toy was cancelled because of its danger to children. The toy was pulled for being a choking hazard, but the prototypes used to design the figure are now worth thousands.
3. Unpunched Boba Fett – $27,000
A loose figure will go for much less, but still might command a few hundred dollars. This Boba Fett figure was in perfect condition, and the hole on the box used to hang toys on store shelves still had the tiny piece of cardboard in it. Unpunched figures are extremely rare to begin with, but a Boba Fett figure in such condition is almost unheard of.
2. Rare Rocket Firing Boba Fett – $50,000
This figure is believed to be worth $50,000 or even more because it is so rare, detailed and in near-perfect condition. The storied history of this figure and its rarity will likely make it one of the most expensive Star Wars toys for the foreseeable future.
1. Jawa With Vinyl Cape – $53,000
The vinyl cape version was quickly replaced, so that’s why it’s so rare. The figures usually sell for around $10,000 or more, but a near mint figure that was graded by the Action Figure Authority was once listed on eBay for $53,000
