The Five Most Expensive Star War Toys Ever Sold

Star Wars is arguably one of the most successful franchises in the history of sci-fi. The resurgence and rebirth of newer generations finding interest and obsession with the Star Wars franchise is largely due to the newer films that have given the series a new energy. As great as the newer Star Wars materials are, we can’t ever dismiss everything that the series was when it first came out. Some of our favorite characters came from that era, and many collectibles and valuable memorabilia came from that time. Particularly, toys from that era are now being sold either privately or in auction. If you’ve ever been curious, here are the five most expensive Star Wars toys ever sold.

5. 1980 Medical Droid FX-7 – $11,500

It’s hard to imagine that a simple medical droid could cost this much. This is a great lesson on market value. When this Palitoy Action Figure was sold in 2014, people were a little surprised that the toy even cost that much. It was sold in the UK for £7,000, which was $11.5k in conversion to USD at the time. Sure, this toy was in absolute mint condition. But still, $11.5k for a medical droid seemed like much, especially in today’s standards. Well, here’s the lesson learned: if someone wants to pay that much for an item, then it must be worth that much.

4. 2010 Boba Fett – $12,000

In 2010, LEGO had a promotional contest where they gave away 14K Gold Boba Fett minifigures. There were 10,000 special white Boba Fetts given away, 2 sterling silver Boba Fetts, and 2 14K solid gold Boba Fetts. All three make up an entire set, but you don’t need all to make money. In fact, one solid gold Boba Fett sold for $12,000. There were only 2 in the world, so you could say that price was justified for LEGO collectors. If this item were to be sold today, we can imagine that price going up slightly higher than $12k. They’d probably cost more as well if the three were all sold as a set.

3. 1977 Star Wars Issue #1 – $13,600

In 1977, the Star Wars comic franchise increased their price to 35 cents per copy, and they did an initial run of copies to be given out to four select markets for testing. These copies have the 35-cent variant notation on the comic book covers. This first edition is one of only 1,500 copies that exist today. The one that sold for $13.5k was a 9.0-graded mint condition. For those who always said that no one could ever make money from collecting comic books, here’s stark proof that you can as long as you know what to collect and how to keep them in mint condition.

2. 2007 Millennium Falcon – $16,000

We know that LEGO is expensive to begin with. The company has specialty sets that can sell for up to $500 or even more. As a matter of fact, this Millennium Factor set actually had an original retail price of $500. The only problem is there aren’t a lot of these sets around. And the fact that this particular box was in absolute mint condition was truly remarkable. Someone was willing to pay $16k for it, and so that’s how much this box of LEGOS is worth today. At least the box never ended in our hands because if it did, we’d probably building the Millennium Falcon instead. We’d probably have no problems with that either.

1. 1977 Jawa – $18,000

There are many reasons why this Jawa action figure cost as much as it did. First off, this was the very fist set of toys ever made and released for the Star Wars franchise. Jawa was one of the 12 characters that were made into action figures. Next, as soon as this Jawa figure was released, Kenner Brand stopped production because he wanted to switch Jawa’s vinyl cape to cloth for a more realistic look. When the Jawa went back into production, there were no vinyl capes to be spotted. So you can imagine how rare the vinyl-caped Jawa is. In fact, only few ever made it into production, and only 6 of them are known to exist today. $18,000 for one tiny toy probably doesn’t sound as crazy anymore, especially considering that its most collectors that are willing to pay for that much anyway.
