    Vintage custom figures?

    I was at a local flea market yesterday and picked up a vintage custom Han Solo. I wondered if there is much of a collectors market for vintage custom figures?

    Some of them are cool but not really worth collecting in my opinion.

    Not much of a collector's market, no.

    For some odd reason I got the bug to collect vintage customs. I bought 3 more customs today.

    If you love them then that's all that matters. If you're a creative person, I'd suggest making your own.

    I agree. You should collect what you like.

    I disagree - I think there probably would be some value in custom figures made during the vintage era. If a kid's childhood had a homemade Tarkin or Sandtrooper or Cantina Alien, etc. I think you could get $10-20 depending on good it was or really how "charming" it was.

    If you are saying modern-day customs of vintage figures then yeah, you are looking at strictly decorative pieces.
