View Full Version : 30 Years worth of Star Wars toys, modern & vintage

05-29-2008, 03:32 AM
This is an opportunity for anybody interested in buying an instant collection of Star Wars collectibles that date from the present back to 1977. I have been putting this collection together since I was six years old.

I have multiple copies of some figures, most notably modern clone troopers, store and toy show exclusives, and imperial troopers. It's been a couple years since I've gone through the collection so I don't remember exact quantities for every item, so I played it safe in many cases by listing only one. Also, there are small items that I didn't take time to photograph but will also be included in the collection at the time of sale. I have lots of vintage Star Wars cards that will be included, for example.

For item condition, I tried to be as realistic as possible and tended to error on the side of caution. Some of the vintage playsets my be missing small pieces as noted (most notably the vintage Droid Factory). Some of the cardboard playsets may have tape repairs as noted. These toys were bought when I was a kid and I played with them, although I was relatively gentle. Some of the vintage puzzles may be missing pieces. I bought them used from garage sales over the years.

Below is a list of the items in my collection. You may see photos of each item in a pdf file at http://www.jlsgraphicdesign.com/Star_Wars_Collection/Star_Wars_Collection.pdf . It is a 192 page document and is about 34MB and will take some time to load even with a fast connection, so please be patient. Also, you may see an html list of the items with quantity, packaging info and item condition at http://www.jlsgraphicdesign.com/Star_Wars_Collection/collection_list.html .

I am asking $38,000 or best offer. Moving the collection is the responsibility of the buyer. It is is currently housed in southern Michigan. I am going to take some time to list and sell it as a collection rather than piecing it out into small lots and auctioning it. Please do not ask if I will sell a particular piece separately, as I will not. Please feel free to email any questions to bujin@earthlink.net . I may not have time to check the forums regularly, so that will be the fastest way to get an answer. Serious inquiries only, please.

Thank you!

You know, when someone registers here just to sell stuff (espcecially when asking for almost 40k), I am sorry to say that I don't think you're going to find many people willing to trust you by sending their hard earned money to someone they don't know, or hasn't provided any feedback.

Your best bet is to break this up item by item, or in lots and build a good reputation; or try ebay.


05-29-2008, 10:01 AM
I would have to agree. $38k is quite a bit for faith.

05-29-2008, 10:07 AM
I think if you get offers, you may be insulted (unless you purposefully set an unrealistic price)

Loose vintage figures, (generously) added up to about $2600.
Modern figures don't go for more than $3 or $4 now a days, so that's about $2800 (if you count $7 for the TAC)

Comics sure must be worth a lot. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

05-29-2008, 11:32 AM
$38,000 .......ummm, am I reading that correctly?

I'm still laughing. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

05-29-2008, 11:51 AM
For $38,000, delivery should be part of the deal.

05-29-2008, 12:30 PM
Personal delivery, cross country, all individually bubble wrapped, and finally reset up in your home. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Nah still $35,000 short. Oh well I tried.

As far as the pricing of the collection, I referred to several current price guides including Tomarts, Lees, the Super Collector's Wish Book and numerous online sources. I priced based on each item's condition, which seems to me a fair and reasonable way to do it. In addition, I've spent more than my fair share of time at toy shows in San Diego and around Los Angeles and Commerce City, along with the recent Star Wars Celebration in Los Angeles last year. I'm familiar with how collectors can price their toys. A case in point is this site, http://www.premiercollect.com, which gives you an idea of how collectors price according to AFA grades. As I said, my items are not all mint and I did not price them as though they were.

In July of this year, there will be an auction down in San Diego featuring toys from the collection of Todd DeMartino, whom some of you may be familiar with. He has a prototype mock-up carded, rocket-firing Boba Fett from the 1979 NY toy fair in the auction. The opening bid is $100,000. It's rare and pristine, but is it, or any toy, really worth $100,000? It may be to somebody. As they say, a thing is worth what you can sell it for. If I can sell my collection without breaking it into lots, great. If I have to break it up and auction it, I'll do it at some point down the road.

Everybody is welcome to their own opinion and if you think I'm asking too much for what I have, that's fine. The comments I've read so far seem a little disappointing considering that this is a community that shares a common interest.

05-29-2008, 04:13 PM
You have two posts and just registered yesterday, the odds of this lot selling here are slim to none......simple fact.

And that price? ~ http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

05-29-2008, 08:58 PM
1. Build a name for yourself
2. Consider breaking up lot
3. Remember this is not eBay, these are collectors who know good deals on such figures as well as where to go get them. The general public (eBay public) have no clue how to get the items they want without spending the "Brian's Toy's" prices.

Good luck!

05-29-2008, 09:36 PM
we all do have a common interest, but if you want top dollar this probably isn't the place to sell...

Lee's Guides and other price guides place values that just don't reflect the market value, especially the forum market. Hopefully you can make a good sale, but 38000 dollars is a lot of money that probably wouldn't be easily plunked down. You could try craigslist though. But anything here is probably gonna have to be done in smaller lots. You may want to check out other postings to get comparative pricing...

good luck

05-29-2008, 09:42 PM

Yeah and that interest is to protect its members.

I know Jedi Defender has this info listed the Todd Delmartino Auction, however whats that got to do with you, your not him and this is not that collection, and as for asking is it worth that, ask yourself is yours worth 40k in that respect.

Your a noob, you come on here and the first thing your trying to do is sell your collection that has no pictures, no one knows who you are, or even what this collection looks like and your expecting us to fork over 40k get real, then you start pointing out other peoples auctions who are being dealt with by an established auction house, come on.

05-29-2008, 09:47 PM
I've never been a "mint" collector. Never bought or sold anything "graded". But from my understanding, graded prices usually refer to figures that have been "officially" graded, right? So if every single one of these figures was professionally graded & sealed...all of them w. 9 & 10 grades....then, "maybe", technically.....this is possible?

BUT***** I'm assuming that's the prices you're going by here, correct?....Pricing them as if each single piece was graded & sealed w. the highest of grades? BEST EXAMPLE I CAN GIVE:

I used to collect baseball cards like a maniac as a kid. Had a few cards starting in 82', but really got serious from about 87-90' or so. Every penny i had went into collecting. Had RC's of TONS of players (well before those years as well)....multiples of each....& of every series (Donruss, Topps, Fleer, UD, etc..). With most of the players i collected (which was almost everyone good), i ended up collecting "one of each" of every major company every year after their RC's as well. Acquired tons of old cards like a second year Clemente, Marris, DiMagio, b&w caramel & tobacco cards...etc.... Extended my collection into the other 3 major sports as well. Always kept my cards in books & my best ones in clear cases. Anyways....a few years back i started going through my collection & looking up prices on ebay. I figured i had a small fortune in cards (like at least 100g)...even if just half my cards were 9's & 10's. Long story short, if all of my cards were graded & all of them fetched 9's & 10's, i'd have several hundred grand right now. As it is, i betcha' i found about a half dozen good cards that would actually fetch a high grade (like in the price guides & on ebay). After spending an enormous amount of time learning about grading & examining my collection & comparing my cards against high graded cards......i betcha' i'd be LUCKY to get about 5 grand!

Is that a good comparison? Is that what this guy is doing?...going by the highest possible gem mint 10 graded prices...& adding them all up as if each one was individually sold on ebay w. a great final sale price? I mean, i'm guessing that's where he's coming from?

05-29-2008, 10:41 PM
I was going to the Lexus dealership tomorrow to pick up my new IS, but I saw this and now I'm thinking of not going to the dealership tomorrow. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Are you asking too much for what you have? I would say yes, but only the amount of time the lot sits with no offers will really tell. One thing that you should consider, this being a Star Wars community, no one here will buy a full collection: we already have a lot in our collections and won't use our money on redundant figures/vehicles/misc. Even people who have been members for many years can't sell a big lot here. If you take the time to read through other for sale listings, you will see that virtually no item sells above retail, few sell for cost, and almost everything sold here to our fellow collectors is at a loss. There is zero chance you will sell this lot here, and about the same anywhere else. Even though it will take you a lot of work to divide it into lots, that's the only way you'll get them sold. Try not to take it too hard when it is all gone and you get less than $5000 for everything, the same thing would happen to all of us.

Lately the staff has noticed a problem with non-transaction related responses to classified section threads. These types of posts will not be tolerated. If someone wishes to discuss/criticize/comment on a person's asking prices then please do so by email or private message.

Consider this a general warning to all. This is a section for selling/trading items not discussing them.

Wow, where to start....

1. As has been mentioned, the RS marketplace is largely built on reputation and trust. Since you're a brand new member who nobody knows, I wouldn't expect the offers to come flooding in for a listing like this. Like it or not, that's just the way it is. If you really don't want to incur ebay fees, you could try Craigslist or somewhere else, but as this stands this will NOT sell here. Trust me on this.

2. Descriptions such as this:

</font><blockquote><font class="small">Quote:</font>

Star Wars watch


-- are worthless. Do you know how many different Star Wars watches there are? You need detailed pictures along with a description and condition for each piece. If you do have everything you say you have here, then this will take a great deal of time, but that's the way it goes-- especially when you're trying to sell this stuff to a bunch of strangers.

3. Break up the collection. No one single person will be interested in EVERYTHING here. Are you looking for a RS member who owns absolutly no SW collectibles whatsoever, and suddenly wants everything, and willing to spend $38K to get it? Not gonna happen.

4. Contact a dealer. Try Brian's Toys, for example, or another toy dealer, but you'd better be much better prepared with pictures and descriptions than you are here, and be prepared to accept an amount a great deal lower than you're asking price.

edit: I just scrolled through that very long .pdf with the pics. Again, you'll need better pictures and descriptions on many items (many pieces only have pics of one side, i.e. the boxed playsets), and there are reprint issues in the comic book lot that are nearly worthless (first 4 issues). Is that mentioned anywhere? If not, it's things like this that you have to watch out for.

05-29-2008, 11:21 PM
Gee, only $38,000?

Unfortunately, I don't believe you will find that here. Especially when you say the buyer must transport it themselves, that is asking a lot considering the price of gas at the present.

Though, I'm sure if you were to try and contact Donald Trump, you might get a little closer to your asking price.

Dear forum members,
Why not let the original poster simply learn from the second hand market instead of the peanut gallery?

Dear original poster,
Various online classified sites like this, as well as the "search completed auctions" feature on eBay will give you much greater (perhaps shocking) insight as to the market value of your collection.

In their own way, I think people were just trying to help this guy reconsider his offer. Not sure I agree with your suggestion for ignoring his post and letting him come up with theories why no one responded versus letting him know right off that his offer is too high and suggesting alternatives to get rid of his stuff.

05-30-2008, 10:52 PM
... plus these comments are cracking me up!

05-31-2008, 02:35 AM
Getting rich from a vast SW collection is a pipe dream- you'll never get what you paid originally. It's a fact, and sad that this guy will see his dream of an instant fortune remain just that. I think Price Guides are bogus anyway, at least in terms of mass-produced toys from the 1980's and beyond (rare variants are an occasional exception). They don't reflect reality at all.

You need to find a rich person from outside the U.S. who never had access to this stuff and go from there. At some point, the size of a massive collection becomes such a burden that getting rid of it at any cost becomes a necessity. I know because I'm trying to get rid of my old stuff- in small lots of course.

06-02-2008, 08:26 PM
I agree this isn't necessarily the best place to try to sell an entire collection, but I figured that the more places it's posted, the more people will see it. I've been researching other resources online with a few potential leads. For those who seem confused about not having photos of the collection, I refer back to my original post, where I have links to a pdf file that has photos of every item listed as well as a listing that gives a description of each item's condition. (the pdf takes a while to load, it's about 33mb) Aside from the "new stuff" (1997-present), I did not price anything as mint, I think I mentioned that as well in a previous post.

Breaking it all up into lots will probably be the inevitable reality, but I don't know where to start so I'll probably procrastinate for a while. Somewhere within the above comments somebody mentioned the fact that collections can become a burden. I totally agree. I moved to California in 2000 and didn't have room to bring the SW stuff with me. I've finally reached the point where it all has to go.

06-08-2008, 07:58 PM
It took me from May 2006 to October 2007 to sell my entire modern collection here on Rebelscum.I sold most of my items in small $50-150 lots,2-3 $500-700 lots and 1 $2,000 big lot purchase....but that was in 2006 when housing prices/economy were on an upswing and people had alot of disposable income.Today,I think you are in a bad spot to sell with housing,economy and $4 a gallon gas,who is going to plunk down alot of money on SW toys that probably will never be worth more then even they are paying for them with your discounted prices.Plus,ebay is loaded with modern collections beacuse people are realizing its too much of a strain moving/storing/maintaing a large collection such as yours...so alot of ebay sellers are fireselling this stuff at HUGE discounted prices to unload,so the chance of someone buying your stuff over whats being sold on ebay,they will choose ebay.I think you need to lower all your prices to about 20-30% of what they are worth in order to sell them effectively.IE-if you have a $5-6 POTJ figure,you need to sell them for $2-3 each in a bulk sale....and that will be the case for most of your stuff.

I am so glad I sold all my modern and bought Vintage MOC 2 years ago....now I know the SW stuff I own will keep its value or rise,instead of dumping $1,000s down the drain in the event I have to sell them my vintage(along with an insurance policy on them http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif)

Always remember that...can you get back what you put into your collection.

06-08-2008, 11:24 PM
Always remember that...can you get back what you put into your collection.

Or you can just collect for fun. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

06-09-2008, 11:03 PM
Of course,I do...but things in life can happen(like what this man is doing above)and when they do,its nice to know you will get back almost all the $$ you put into your collection(or more) with buying vintage.

If you buy modern items retail...you will lose 50%-75%(on most items) in the long run if you need to sell them.

I never thought I was EVER EVER going to sell my modern collection but 2 kids later,a bigger house and the space required to house the huge collection happened and that took the life out of my modern collecting purchases.

I buy ONLY vintage now and now I can display the stuff properly and need about 5% of the space I would of needed to display my modern collection(2 rooms to be exact).

But,what do I know http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif
