Complete Vintage Collection Of Original Star Wars Action Figures

4 Years Ago By Richard Darell

Yesterday I wrote about what could possibly be the world’s greatest Star Wars collection of all time. It is an insane collection of everything from life-size lightsabers to small custom figurines. You can find pretty much anything in that collection. Today I am taking a little bit of a different approach to the whole thing. Today is all about the original aspect of it all. If you consider yourself to be even a moderate Star Wars fan, you know that the figurines released back in the day are now worth a lot of money. Some of the most rare ones can bring in several thousands of dollars if sold to the right buyer. It’s pretty impressive, and if you have a complete vintage collection of the Star Wars figurines, you could potentially be sitting on a gold mine.

This complete vintage collection is priced at $2,700-$3,500, which you have to agree is quite a lot of money for some figurines that could have been bought back when you were a kid for pennies in comparison. It totals 79 figurines, which are all of the official figures from the movies A New Hope,The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. I wonder how many people out there sport one of these collections. I know many of my friends who are Star Wars fans have tried to collect them all throughout the years, but none have actually managed to pull it off.

The thing is though, when you collect something, you want to buy the pieces one by one. It’s way more fun to put together your own collection than to just buy a completed one and be done with it. That is what collecting is all about – To carefully choose what you add to it and to make sure, in this case for example, that your complete vintage collection of figurines is in the mint condition you set out to achieve. However, for someone who just wants to play with them, which of course is why they were made in the first place, this complete vintage collection would totally be an expensive toy set for the kids. If your wallet can support it, I say go for it.

The best way to start the best kind of collection is to start from the beginning. I have a very similar collection including a lot of the variations. What I couldn’t find loose back in the 90’s I had to buy on card. Then Hasbro continued the VC and it all blends in so very nicely. Of all the many different lines Hasbro has used over the years , the vintage collection is visually the greatest.

The only other thing people should understand is there is a little more to collect here. I would consider the blue snaggletooth and yak face MUST be included as well for this collection to really be complete. There are at least 10 variations of the figures above that you could buy but really isn’t mandatory to make the collection complete.

There are actually 100 different figures in the vintage Kenner line… 22 (including the rare Blue Snaggletooth) from Star Wars, 29 from The Empire Strikes Back, 34 from Return of the Jedi (that includes the Max Rebo Band which was packaged in a box together) and 15 in the Power of the Force line that was released in 1985. There were also variants like Han Solo from the first film… first released with a small head and later with a larger head, Luke in Bespin Fatigues… with blonde hair and another with brown hair, and Yoda… originally released with light green skin and an orange snake, later released with dark green skin and a brown snake. Rebelscum.com is a great resource for anyone wanting to learn about vintage Star Wars toys.

My ex-son-in-law has collected all the figures and left them in their original boxes. It seems that from time to time special limited pieces were produced. Then were randomly added to some boxes of Starwars figurines sent out to the stores. Not many people were aware of these rarer and limited items. As for myself most of ours ended up in garage sales as the children grew up. I did however manage to hold on to three early light sabers from the seventy”s. I just thought they were cool.

I have one of the characters in your collection that I’m trying to find a name for. It’s the 2nd vintage set, 4th row down, the 6th guy across in green. Do you know the name?? Thanks!
