Collecting star wars action figures and toys is more about buying them and displaying them like you would any other collectable. Instead it's about preserving either your child hood or your new childhood. I think it is really cool that these old toys and new toys can be saved for future generations.
History: The first thing to note wheather collecting vintage or new star wars collectables is that the value only increases with the availability of the item. Sadly many new star wars toys from like target and k-mart will be the same price ten years from now or the price will mabye even drop. The trick that occured after the 70's and 80's Star Wars toys hit the market was people didn't know they would soon one day become very valueble. Did you know that the first company's to create star wars toys and action figures were kenner and palitoy and with so many variations of products these items are some of the most sought after Star wars merchandise. Kenner didn't launch there line till after the first Christmas after Star Wars hit the big screen soavid buyers had to wait. But they did give a cardboard box called the "early bird package" that was sold in stores in which figures were sent away for along with other premium items. So what is the most valueble star wars item you ask? Well many people including me say that the double telescoping lightsaber Ben Kenobi in original 12 back package is the rarest raising prices as much of 30,000 dollars for highly graded AFA(action figure graded) packaged ones. So weather you already collect star wars or are hoping too please enjoy my blog. May the force be with you.
