Collector's Notes for a vintage Star Wars Imperial Shuttle Vehicle:

Imperial Shuttles are very large. And somewhat fragile. And there are quite a few parts. As such, they can be difficult to find in good, complete, working condition. And even incomplete and broken, they tend to be on the pricier side.

Besides looking for completeness, you want to check out the functionality of the wings. In some cases, the wings get locked in the up position. In some cases, the wings become "loose", or out of synch with each other. From the vertical position, they are meant to fall to the sides together when the trigger on the front handle is pulled. The gear system that keeps them in synch often breaks - I believe more due to people trying to raise the wings by lifting only one. That is a lot of stress to put on the system! Always lift the wings with both hands - one on each wing. Plus I recommend to NOT let the wings just fall to the open position. Give them some support if you'd like your 40 year old expensive toy to last another 40 years!

In 2006, someone thought it would be a good idea to make more Imperial Shuttles - using the same mold as the 1984 vintage Shuttle. So BE ON THE LOOK OUT for these differences when purchasing!

In essence, if it has a weathered look or if the bottom section is painted gray, it's the later 2006 one. There are other tells, but those are the quickest give away. Just because it's stamped "1984" does NOT mean it's vintage!

The video below will show you how to fix an Imperial Shuttle whose wings are stuck in the vertical position. It also demonstrates a fix we've developed for the broken wing gears. Both of these fixes are very straightforward - but there is a bit of work to do to get it apart, and to put it back together again.

Advice for selling a vintage Imperial Shuttle Vehicle: (see next section for general selling advice.)

See the note above about the 2006 Saga version of the Imperial Shuttle that used the same mold as the vintage Imperial Shuttle. Make sure to properly identify which version you have when selling.

Galactic Collector firmly stands against parting out vintage toys, unless they are badly damaged, or already VERY incomplete. We know you can make more money selling the parts individually, but we ask that you reconsider! Every vintage toy you take apart is one less that exists.

If parts are missing - list out each item that missing. In our experience reviewing online auction sales (thousands of them!), listing these details earns you more money than simply saying "please review pictures, what you see is what you get".

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.
