I inherited a star wars collection. I'm learning but I still know very little about them. Is there someone that could take a look at my collection and give me an idea of it's worth? Probably using photos and that you guys trust? What is the best reference? Thee seems to be all kinds of information out there. Will pay a small price for a look-see. I've been told a lot of them have been "reboxed" but I think most of the figures are legit. In the process of photographing them now.

Well, first thing is to make a list.

Since you did not specify, separate if modern or vintage.

Great place to check is the Rebelscum's archive to start.

Of course, photos are very helpful. As to "reboxed", that is hard to tell without photos.

Good luck.

Definitely would need pictures to be of any help as far as value. Wildly different prices depending on vintage versus 90s versus modern and condition is king.

These items, mostly from the 70's and 80's have been in an attic for 5 years. There is yellowing of the clear plastic on the packages as well at soem parts of the figures. As I understand it, a repackaged item will not have the "waffle" sealing on the blister. Some do, some don't. The items appear to be genuine within the package.

I really appreciate your help and am abut half way through the photography.

https://bradbullock.net/presents.html There still are a few "sets and items I'm cleaning up and have not yet added to the gallery there. Many of the packaged items are lacking the web design in the seal - some do have it. The items in all the packages look genuine. Any insight into what I have will be appreciated. Will add closer shots if needed, or even video. Thanks again.

All of the vintage carded are recarded on custom cardbacks, the value of the figures it will be the same as loose, since the weapons are inside of the package, it's difficult to know if they are original or repro and also that will affect the value of the complete figure. For the modern carded figures, you have a lot of sun damage and also yellow figures as well, that will affect the value too,

Yes. In between the time of my relative's passing and when I got them, they were not stored very well. I understand that there is a "waffle" effect or criss-cross effect on the seal of original packaging. The newer ones have it. Thank you for your input. I appreciate it.

I’d say between $7,000-$8,000. I tried to be really conservative and (assuming all accessories are original) came up with about $7,800. The gray prototype Boba Fett and the blue “Uzay” figure are reproductions, but still worth about $50 each as curiosities.
