If you love playing the lottery online and enjoy all things nerdy, then this could be the perfect way to spend your online lottery winnings from EuroMillions, UK Lotto, Mega Millions, US Powerball, EuroJackpot and the Brazilian Mega Sena. Yes, a list of the most expensive Star Wars action figures ever sold. Keep reading to find out what they are.
Vlix – $4,000
After the success of Star Wars, the creator George Lucas released tow animated series’, Star Wars: Droids and Star Wars: Ewoks. Looking to make the most of the series, a line of action figures was released by toy giant Kenner. Since only 13 episodes of Droids were ever made the toy company only created one line of production runs. In one way or another, the mold for one of the second-wave characters, Vlix, got to Brazilian company Glasslite where it went into production in 1988. These action figures are worth thousands online and their value is only set to increase.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (with double-telescoping lightsaber) – $6,000-7,000
This action figure is part of the original 12-back release from 1978 and one of the most sought after action figures in the world of Star Wars. Obi-Wan comes with a fragile telescoping light saber that was extremely difficult to make. Since this was one of the first action figures in the series it is extremely rare which explains its price tag.
Darth Vader (with double-telescoping lightsaber) – $6,000-7,000
Darth Vader is one of the most iconic villains in Hollywood. Before being ‘enhanced’ by George Lucas, he was also big, dark and scary. The 1978 12-back was one of the original Kenner releases and, like Obi-Wan, came with a rare and delicate double-telescoping lightsaber. Vader was also produced for a shorter period than the Luke Skywalker figure which explains why it’s more valuable.
Medical Droid FX-7 – approx. $12,000
This is a bit of an odd one as the medical droid only made one appearance for an entire 20 seconds in the 1980 movie Empire Strikes Back. While there was some debate about the value of this action figure, all was put to rest when an original FX-7 sold for $12,000.
Vinyl Cape Jawa – $18,000+
The Jawa was released by Kenner as part of the original 12 part series way back in 1978. As the action figure was smaller than the other ones in the series yet sold for the same price, the producers’ added a vinyl cape as compensation. Soon after, production of the vinyl cape was stopped meaning that the action figure was rare from the outset. This explains its $18,000 price tag which is set to increase as time goes by.
