When accounting for how many properties The Walt Disney Company has under its belt, perusing the toy aisle at your local department store is adjacent to taking a walk down Main Street, U.S.A. And while everything Star Wars-related has been held under the mouse’s microscope for years now, a collection of original, pre-Disney promotional toys from a galaxy far, far away are up for grabs.
This enormous collection of figurines is highlighted by a handful of Luke Skywalker released to promote A New Hope in 1977, each of which is expected to rake in as much as $20,000. These double telescoping examples are free of dings and dents and equipped with an adjustable lightsaber — but it’s not like anyone will be opening the package to use that, anyway.
In addition to this bizarrely rare Skywalker figure, lots include an original Death Star Commander that was originally pulled off shelves due to its name, an unpunched Boba Fett estimated to go for up to $8,000, and a massive box full of 24 Yoda figurines from The Empire Strikes Back, which is still packaged in its original shipping box. The onslaught on figures is courtesy of Kenner Products, a now-defunct toy company that obtained the rights to produce Star Wars playsets and action figures through the original trilogy’s release cycle.
Add to your collection or start a new one entirely with this near-mint lot of 400 original Star Wars toys. The auction is going on until February 1 through Morphy, with respective estimates ranging between $100 and $20,000.
