X-Wing Fighter (Battle Damaged)

Collector's Notes for a vintage Star Wars X-Wing Fighter (Battle Damaged) Vehicle:

The Battle Damaged X-Wing is different from the standard X-Wing in a couple of ways. And here I'm only discussing the American distributed ones (non-Palitoy). They are light gray where standard is white. They have a smoky/tinted canopy as opposed to the standard's clear. They have black covers on the engine fronts as opposed to the standard's all white. And last but not least: they have stickers to make them look damaged!

Be careful of buying stand alone canopies to complete a BD X-Wing. They are very similar to the later POTF X-Wing canopies. The BD canopy should be gray tinted or smoky, where the POTF has a SLIGHT blue tint. They are VERY hard to tell apart without good comparisons.

Now, it seems to be that a lot of kids did NOT like to apply the battle damage stickers to their BD X-Wings. I can't say I blame them! Who wants a damaged looking vehicle? So it can be difficult to find a BD X-Wing with the BD stickers actually on it. For our pricing categories, we only consider them "complete" if they also have the battle damage stickers. Technically, not having the BD stickers doesn't seem to hurt the price much, but it does affect our classification and price guide.

For the Palitoy (European released) Battle Damaged X-Wings, they are pretty rare to find, and have some notable differences to the US Battle Damaged X-Wings: they are essentially the standard Palitoy X-Wing with the addition of some battle damage stickers. So, the body is white, the wing release button is white, there are no electronics, and the rear panel has a sticker instead of molded detail.

The Palitoy Battle Damaged X-Wing differs from the US released Battle Damaged X-Wings in a few ways, including a white body, a white button, and a rear sticker detail.

Pricing Variant 1 - Kenner Battle Damaged X-Wing Fighter

The Kenner version of the Battle Damaged X-Wing was released in the US markets and is the most common BD X-Wings you are likely to find. They differ from ALL other X-Wings (Palitoy or standard Kenner X-Wings) in that they were cast in a light gray plastic. It can appear almost white under the right lighting conditions, but when viewed next to anothe X-Wing, the gray becomes obvious. Another major difference is the black covers over the front of the engines.

Pricing Variant 2 - Palitoy Battle Damaged X-Wing Fighter

The Palitoy version of the Battle Damaged X-Wing was released in non-US markets, primarily Europe, Canada, and Australia. They are very uncommon in the US, and most of our sales data comes from non-US sales. The Palitoy BD X-Wing is cast in white, and looks more like a standard X-Wing that had Battle Damage stickers applied. It differs from the Kenner in its white wing lock button, no electronics, and a sticker on the back instead of molded detail.

Advice for selling a vintage X-Wing Fighter (Battle Damaged) Vehicle: (see next section for general selling advice.)

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.
