Star Wars is one of the greatest franchises of all time, which has led to many Star Wars toys being made over the years.
If you happen to find yourself with some Star Wars toys that you’re looking to sell, this first thing you’ll want to do is figure out how much they’re worth. As with determining the value of any collectible, it’s more of an art than a science and certainly not exact, but here are our recommendations to coming to a fairly accurate estimate of what those Star Wars toys of yours are worth:

First, Try And See What Comparable Star Wars Toys Sold For
The number of variables that determine what any collectible is worth, let alone a Star Wars toy, is almost limitless. The true value is simply what someone else is willing to pay for them, so what better way to actually see what others actually paid for these items? Luckily eBay advanced search makes it very easy to search for completed auctions.
Then Determine The Condition
Once you’ve compared similar items that have sold, you’ll want to adjust that number up or down based on how your item compared to the items sold, since no two items are alike. The main difference is usually in condition. If your Star Wars toy is in better condition, then someone is probably willing to pay more for it, and visa versa. This is why it’s so important to store your collectibles properly!
Determine How Rare It is
Another variable that can adjust the selling price of your item relative to comparable items is how rare it is. How many were made? How many others are for sale? The rarer it is and the less available it is to potential buyers, the more those buyers will pay for it.
Decide Where You Want To Sell Them
Once you’ve narrowed in on what your Star Wars toy is worth, you need to decide where you’re going to sell it, because that will determine how much above or below you can sell your item for relative to its intrinsic value. For instance, pawn shops and other places that buy collectibles for cash probably won’t pay anywhere near the true value of your Star Wars toy, but buy going through the bidding process on eBay you can get close. It really just comes down to personal preference and how much work you’re willing to put in.
