'Star Wars' Action Figure Mega Auction: How You Can Buy Almost 2,000 Vintage ToysMike Sampson |
Remember when your mom threw out all your old 'Star Wars' toys and you were like, "MOM! Those are gonna be worth something some day!" Well, you were right. But if you've got some cash lying around, you can buy all your old toys back - almost 2,000 vintage 'Star Wars' toys from over 30 years - while giving to a really worthwhile charity. Find out how.
Rancho Obi-Wan is offering up this treasure trove of 'Star Wars' action figures on eBay in a listing that's officially designated as a 'eBay Giving Works Charitable Listing.' According to the auction:
We are offering what we believe is the largest single collection of unique Star Wars action figures ever made available on eBay. This amazing auction includes a huge lot of 1,950 different loose action figures collected over decades--starting with the vintage line in 1978--and representing over 85% of the figures documented in the new book Star Wars: The Ultimate Action Figure Collection.
Pretty much all the classic Kenner figures are included here including all your favorite characters. And it can all be yours for just $8,000 (at least that's the top bid at press time)! Just think if your mom didn't throw all these out when you were a kid...
Paying $8,000 for a bunch of toys may seem like a bit much but a) think of how much these will be worth once 'Star Wars: Episode 7' hits theaters and b) think of how much fun you'll have with all of these. Of course, we don't have $8,000 to spend on 'Star Wars' action figures so the point is moot. But if you do and if you want to help a good cause, maybe you want to put in a bid on this pretty incredible auction.
