Often when manufacturers tell you something is collectible, it's case of wishful thinking. But it has proven true in the case of the power of Force coins that were once available with select Action figures or as mail-order prizes. Coin themselves range in value from a few bucks to hundreds of dollars, but Action Figure still in its packaging with accompanying coin can fetch even more than that. If the name Yak Face doesn't ring bell, you might not be a Star Wars superfan. This obscure character, also known as Joe Camel for its uncanny resemblance to certain cigarette mascot, was cut from toy-maker Kenner's line after production of Toys had already begin, according To Paddle 8. Leftover toys were sent to Europe and Canada, making them especially prize by American Collectors who had been deprived of the experience of playing With yak Face as children. Before the third installment of the original trilogy was released in 1983, film was called Revenge of Jedi. But some merchandise, like toy backing cards and posters, had already been released bearing the original title. Avid Star Wars fans are constantly seeking out these items with incorrect titles and are willing to pay large sums of money for them. One such misnomer-fill poster sold for over 16 000 at Sotheby's Auction. As any self-respecting collector knows, most valuable toys are usually ones in their original packaging. A set of action figures sold in Canada to promote Empire Strikes back in 1980 was part of the Star Wars exclusive Auction held by Sotheby's in 2015, and it sold for 32 500. Multi-pack sets with special figures were sold exclusively at Sears stores in Canada. They were prize enough, even at time, that packs were often Find ripped open in stores, forcing Sears to sell vacuum-seal figures separately. What do you get when you combine obscure character, spin-off television show, and short manufacturing time? You get what Star Wars Collectors Archive calls rarest of all Star Wars Figure to be commercially release. Chubby Vlix was a character from the 1985 cartoon show Droids, which aired for only 13 episodes. Figure is among a handful of scarce and desirable models manufactured by Brazilian company Glasslite, and one of them go for thousands of dollars at the 2017 Auction. Who doesn't love Boba Fett, bounty hunter who tracks Han Solo across the Galaxy? The character, who uttered only a handful of lines in the original trilogy, proved so popular that he was given Back Story in Episode III. It's perhaps no surprise, then, that Boba Fett figures are among the most prized action figures. Unpainted, prototype version of Figure sell for over 100 000 at auction in 2019. There were thousands of action figures made of Star Wars ' favorite hero, but far fewer of this early version that feature telescoping lightsaber.

Blue Snaggletooth (with Cantina playset)

December 8 2016-elusive Blue Snaggletooth, in near-mint condition, is one of the rarest and most difficult vintage Star Wars figures to find. Sure, you can search for him on Ebay, and you will find dozen or more in less than ideal condition. They will often have obvious use or play-in condition, including rub-off paint, paint scratches, and scuff marks on silver boots, belt buckle, hands and back of head. Or they might suffer less-than-tight limbs and guns that may or may not be original. And still, these beloved and abused Blue snaggletooths, sell loose, will sell between 200 to 300. For the more minty condition version, expect to pay at least 350 to 400 or more. I think Ebay listing looks legit in that the seller has a 100 % feedback rating based on over 1200 sales. The Listing, however, appears to be a bit naive or lazy: It includes 2 duplicate figures which are not from Star Wars vintage line; it refers to mini figures; there are no individual photos and some figures are hidden behind others; and description isnt very helpful. So apparently, seller isnt that knowledgeable about what he / she is selling-or doesnt realize that there is a hidden gem amongst 37 figures. Your real question is probably is: Should I take a chance and bid? Hard to say without clear photos and detailed descriptions. Significantly, most all figures appear to be missing one or more accessories, and we have no information on their condition: are limbs tight, missing paint, other defects, etc. If your real goal is Blue Snaggletooth hoping for windfall, you might calculate it this way: Setting aside for now, Blue and 2 others that don't belong leave the US with 34 figures. Even if all 34 turn out to be beaters with missing accessories, conservative resell value might be on average, say, {matheq}10-15 each ={endmatheq} 340-510. And if it turns out that Blue Snags is in only fair to so-so condition and missing his weapon, perhaps he is worth {matheq}150-{endmatheq} 200 conservatively? Plus whatever case is worth. You just might come out ahead. Also, if this Snags' quality is less than you had expect, you can always resell him and trade up later on. / But armed with these caveats / warnings, I would certainly proceed with caution.

5 Vinyl Cape Jawa $28,000+

There are few figures that hold more mythical status among Star Wars collectors than vinyl cape Jawa. But there are more expensive ones, which is lucky for folks who still harbor dreams of acquiring this little guy. When Jawa debuted in 1978, he came with a vinyl plastic cape like other figures in line. Kenner saw it and thought it made the figure look too cheap for his two bucks and changed the asking price. So they quickly swap out vinyl cape for cloth one, early enough in the run that many never realize the vinyl version exist. Carded example costs close to 30 000.

Vintage Star Wars Action Figures

1985 saw the official cancellation of Kenner's Star Wars action figure line. When line was give ax, there was one last figure, Yak Face, that had gone through production but was never distributed to toy stores. In order to recoup some of their production losses, Kenner chose to simply send figures to outlets in Europe and Canada instead of destroying overstock and thus poor Yak Face never saw retail in the States. Years later, as the Star Wars collectible market continues to grow, Yak Face action figures begin to make their way into collectors ' hands. But figures remain extremely rare, fueling rumors that Kenner did indeed destroyed most of overstock figures back in 1985.

Vintage The Empire Strikes Back

Empire strike Back, second Star Wars movie, opens with bang snowbound Battle of Hoth, which was extremely cool both literally and figuratively. Most importantly, at least for purposes of this list, is that it marks only appearance of cold weather in the form of imperial stormtrooperthe aptly-title Snowtrooper. So, since they were only in this one bit, their helmets are quite a bit rarer than standard stormtrooper helmets. In fact, only one is known to have ever ended up on the market. This one, which sold for a cool 225 000 back in 2012.

3: Anakin Skywalker

One of the most consistently valuable Star Wars figures of all is the 1985 Power of Force Anakin Skywalker, but only if you happen to have him in package. This character was initially released as a mail-away, so fans of the series could simply send away for him without hitting the store. If you go this route, your Anakin figure comes loose, in a plastic bag. In 1985, Kenner released package Anakin to stores, but many of fans who were still collecting Star Wars toys had already mailed them away to him by that point, so sales were relatively poor. The toy comes with no accessories, other than the collector's coin and strange, out-of-character smile, yet will still cost you between 2 250 and 3 000 if you simply must add him to your collection [Sources: Wells and Moen].
