Collector's Notes for a vintage Star Wars Luke Skywalker Action Figure:

The Luke Skywalker action figure typically goes by "Farm Boy Luke" as he's in his moisture farmer Tatooine garb. Very collectible, even a rough example missing his saber will likely cost you $10. Luke has a few points that will impact his price:
  1. His lightsaber: a saber with lettering on the hilt (the tab that sticks out) will tend to be much more valuable than no lettering. Plus of course there is the very rare double-telescoping sabers that actually have a little plastic insert that goes through the saber to make it even longer. This is not to be confused with a standard telescoping lightsaber that still has its tip. Telescoping simply means that the saber slides in and out of the arm. Double-telescoping means the main saber slides out of the arm, and the inner plastic tip will then slide out even more.
  2. His hair color. The blond Farmboy Lukes are much more common that the brown hair Lukes. Brown haired Lukes will easily fetch $100-$200, sometimes even without a saber.

Standard lightsabers are OFTEN missing the tip, and these Lukes will have less value. If you find a double-telescoping saber, odds are it can run $500 to a grand + depending on condition and how well the auction is managed. While still rare and valuable, Luke with a double-telescoping saber is more common than a DT Saber Obi-Wan or Darth Vader. This shows how a standard telescoping lightsaber compares to a double telescoping lightsaber:

How do you tell a standard lightsaber from a double telescoping lightsaber? The DT extends much farther due to a separate inner portion that slides out further.

Pricing Variant 2 - Brown Hair Farmboy Luke

This Luke still has a single-telescoping yellow lightsaber, but he won't be blond. We lump brown hair and orange hair Lukes together here - though the orange is much rarer. There are a number of shades of brown, so if Luke isn't an obvious yellow blond, we lump him in this grouping.

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.
