Star Wars figures on eBay

Recommended Posts

Madness, my mother in her wisdom gave all of my brother's figures away. He had the whole lot as well :P

Everyone I knew at school had most of the star wars figures. Surely they didn't all go in the bin?

 

I've no idea where mine are actually, might raid my parents' loft next weekend :P

I had the lot and gave them away...

 

Apart from my AT-AT and Millennium Falcon which my pyromaniac of a brother shoved a whole load of BBQ lighter fluid soaked bog roll into and set fire to them....

 

 

Arsehole! :P

Usually these things are practically worthless unless they have never been opened. Anybody that is willing to pay several grand for a plastic star wars figure needs to be committed imo. :P

Seriously though, what is wrong with these dweebs? Pay off a chunk of your mortgage or something. Don't spend thousands of pounds on a little plastic figure that you won't even take out the box.

I'm terrible with money actually. :steamtrain: But I would never entertain the idea of spending thousands of pounds on a toy. Sad freaks need to get a life tbh.

I had the entire collection, and my mother kept the boxes too. But then she decided to give them to my younger cousin and they got destroyed, he liked to burn and chew things. For years after I tried to tell him he should try combining the two and see what happens, he didn't have the jacob's for it though. :P

Of course, unboxed magically animated toy cowboys are worth considerably more.

My sisters new lad is one of the aforementioned "dweebs".

He has a Darth Vader shaped suitcase full of miniature Star Wars figures ( still with original weapons) and has just forked out £800 or so on a Darth Maul light sabre which is "not a toy" as he told my disgruntled 5 year old nephew.

He keeps turning the lights off in the living room to play with it to full effect... :P

 

( come to think of it I am sure I spotted a Princess Ear muffs wig in there as well .. :steamtrain: )

Wouldn't it make financial sense to buy the toy rather than pay off the mortgage?

 

They go for stupid money now, in 25 years they'll be going for insane money.

rather they spent their money on these..

 

it's better that than them buying nightscopes, rohypnol, a few "instruments" and a new set of ladders down to their basement.

 

psycho-killers are just dweebs who didn't have a "socially acceptable" outlet for their geek-ity.

I'm surprised you all think like this to be honest.

 

It's no different to people who buy any other investment that gives them pleasure. Like a cellar full of wine you'll probably never drink. Or paintings that live in vaults.

 

Many of the fine electric guitars from the 50s and 60s are now "too" valuable to play and many just get put into glass cases in Hard Rock Cafes and rich Japanese businessmens' apartments.

 

I don't share the enthusiasm for these toys but I can imagine if they make you happy you could get into spending your money on them.

 

:P
