Variations

The black Bespin Security Guard comes in 4 major variations. You may see different examples of this figure with varying amounts of gold trim, but that is simply a wear issue.

The 4 variants can be easily distinguished by their COOs and Copyright lines. Other factors can help - skin color and cuff color - but these can be tough to gauge on individual figures unless you see a comparison next to it. Plus, if you only have an image to go by, lighting has a HUGE impact on how these features come across.

The Copyright symbol also varies - V1 and V2 have a sharper, cleaner looking symbol, where V3 and V4 have more mounded looking symbol, where the C and the circle almost seem to merge.

Var 2 - the PBP manufactured variation - is VERY uncommon. We assume it would have more value than the other 3 variations - but there are no usable sales comparisons to go by. But if you see a black Bespin Security Guard who looks like it's COO was chipped out with an ice pick, snap it up! Just make sure it has the higher Copyright line to distinguish it from Var 4...

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.
