Collector's Notes for a vintage Star Wars 8D8 Action Figure:

8D8 usually only has one issue: his legs might be bent/curved. This can easily be fixed by placing them in near boiling water for 5-10 seconds, straightening them out, and running under cold water to set them. They will retain their “new” shape for a long time.

This section is broken down into three parts. First, we will describe what we call "Pricing Variations". These are differing characteristics in the figure that have a large impact on price. Second, we will look at more distinctive variations that we have identified that may be of interest to collectors. Thirdly, we'll provide links to other variation resources. No one place can cover it all!

We curently classify all 8D8 figures in just one Pricing Variation.

There are 2 manufacturers for 8D8 that give us our 2 variants. From a general detail perspective these guys are practically identical - one of the biggest differences is the general detailing. The Lili Ledy figure has a harder plastic, which causes finer details from the mold to show through. This is usually most obvious when looking at the back panel. Though this can be quite difficult to discern - especially from pictures. The most obvious tell between the 2 is the yellow of the eye. Var 1 (Smile) has a nice bright yellow, where Var 2 (Ledy) is much darker.

The front brown emblem can sometimes be used as an indicator with Var 1 being lighter, and Var 2 darker - but this is very subjective and hard to tell in pictures (see our full figure images - they appear to be opposite, but this is all lighting/condition related). Also the emblem bolts are typically unpainted on Var 2, but again, not a guaranteed tell as Var 1 can have paint wear making them identical.

From the side view, the leg "gear box" may or may not have a circle in the bottom portion. This can occur in either variation, and can be on the left or right leg, or neither, or both. As such, we aren't listing this difference as a true variation - but if you are really insistent on having every possible version of 8D8, you'll want to take this into consideration.

One thing ALL collectors can agree on is that there is more than one way to define a "variation". You may disagree with our variation assessment, so we provide the following resources which we find very valuable. They don't all agree with us, nor necessarily with each other, but each one is worth a look. (The following buttons will open these external sites in a new tab/window.)

General advice for selling vintage Star Wars collectibles:

The following suggestions are intended to help you get the best price possible for the figure you are trying to sell, whether you are selling on eBay, Mercari, or any other online platform.

Best Platforms for Selling Vintage Star Wars Action Figures

Every platform has its advantages. If you have a solid brand built in a particular platform - you should definitely sell there. In general, our top pick is eBay. Yes, we are an eBay affiliate, but eBay is a solid, reputable platform that has been around as long as e-commerce. People trust it, and it has solid protections for sellers and buyers. Other platforms like FaceBook Market Place, Mercari, Etsy, and even Poshmark are all solid platforms, but most sellers do not rely on any one of them singly. Often, if you find a listing on one of these platforms, it is likely cross-listed on eBay. So if you are looking to post on a single online platform, eBay is our top recommendation. For local sales, FaceBook Market Place and Craigslist are your best bets. Facebook will probably get you a larger audience, but Craigslist still attracts a large group of people that shy away from social media.

Tips For Listing Vintage Star Wars Action Figures Online

  • Take clear, close-up photos of the figure, including the following:
    • Full body from the front, back, sides AND top.
    • Close ups of the accessory/weapon, by itself, from both sides.
  • Take photos of any damaged areas, including scratches, rubbed off paint, or discoloration.
  • Take photos of the figure standing without help of a stand if you can to demonstrate the tightness of the legs.
  • Take photos of the figure with arms extended to demonstrate the tightness of the arms.
  • Any the above photo suggestions can of course be combined to minimize the number of photos you need to take/upload. Consider an action pose of the figure from an angle, with weapon in hand, and the head pointed at the camera. This demonstrates a number of traits while at the same time making a cool main photo.
  • If the arms and/or legs are loose, disclose that in the listing.
  • If there is any damage or discoloration, disclose that in the listing.
  • DO NOT buy reproduction weapons to sell with a figure to make them "look complete". Collectors do NOT want reproduction items and your reputation can be ruined for selling them. Do your best to verify the weapon with resources like The Imperial Gunnery. If you can't verify it, mention that in the listing. The more effort you put into knowing the product, the more trust you will earn from the buyers!
  • DO NOT post a figure with a vintage accessory that does not go with it and claim that's it's "100% original". Even if the accessory is an original, if it doesn't go to the figure - no one wants to buy it that way. You are better off listing the accessory separately.
  • Avoid using the phrase "No Repro" in the listing to try to indicate that it's all original. Many serious collectors have advanced searches that they use, and frequently block "repro" in the search. So, even though you have a "no" in there, you may be losing some of your audience. Instead, use phrases like "100% original" or "complete and all original vintage accessories".
  • Do NOT post fuzzy or out of focus pictures. Buyers will likely think that you either don't know what you are doing, or that you are trying to hide something about the figure.
  • You do not need fancy cameras to take good pictures for your posting. An older cell phone can often take perfect photos. If you are having trouble getting a clear shot, consider getting or making a simple mount for your phone. This will hold it steady for you while you make sure it gets in focus.
