i dont collect any vintage star wars figures,toys,coins any more, im so glad when i got my vintage star wars stuff, they were giving it away, it was so cheap, no one wanted it, a lot of my figures i got in card backs and took them out, all the droids/ewoks figures plus my last 17 figures are all from card backs,, should graded them but i have no time for it any more, i got so much **** off my girl friend, she put me right off,,does your wife/girlfriend give you ****?, i should be really happy with my collection because i know that many of you will never get all of it,, got mine for pennys, now them pennys have turned in to a ??? god know how much? i know the uk toy hunter, he has a mint collectin all graded,,,keeps telling me to get it all graded,,, now i wish i had now taken them out of card back now! i have ship varitions, loads of figures have 3/4/5 varitions, i got a lot of figures from usa, in fact i have over 450 figures, about 70 per cent of weapons, only one i dont have is vix and will never have it,, when my son told me there was a new sw film going out! we all did the pay day dance??? WHY because i had loads of every thing,,it was unreal,,,i made a lot of cash from it,,a lot of cash,so my collection cost me nothing but ear ache, sad but i dont want it any more, i will never have a hobby again, loads of you who collect it, are crazy?? why? because they are just toys, i got so much **** for talking the figures out of card backs, it was unreal, and i gave all the card backs to some one? in fact ive given loads away to new collectors who can not aforrd them! sent stuff to usa, i think you call them beaters, only given figures and mini rigs away, not that daft,,i feel sorry for any new colletors, you will need deep pockets, plus a 2nd job?,, in fact now you can get more carded figures, than you could 7 years ago,, watch out for the repo card backs with real figures and repo guns, you should know how to spot them! i wish you all luck with your collections and may the force be with you aways,,,they are only toys, i never thourt for 1 min i would make money from from the toys. i think the force is with me or was with me,,,hahaha

Wives/GF's: always will have something to say, but I'm lucky that mine only asks "is this really worth X dollars?"

Graded stuff is for selling, otherwise (like all things) it has no value if you want to keep it aside from sentimental value (in which no amount is enough to part with your toys). Pretty sure that if any one is going to quit and dump all their toys that they'll want to try to get top dollar, so grading is the way to SELL collectibles today. If you want to literally cash out then you should grade everything, as tons of people trade that way. Keep in mind that grading the figures also costs money, so your going to have to calculate in "opportunity costs" such as shipping (to grader of your choice), grading fees (dependent on the type of case you choose), selling fees )if done online), and more shipping fees (to your buyer).

Personally, I don't like graded stuff and prefer to catch my toys in the wild. Ofcourse, if you like giving things away, I'll take some. LOL..

The only other way to make a decent amount off selling your collection is to offer it up as a whole. Grabbing a large sum for a toy lot is a common thing to see on Ebay…
