The 6 Rarest and Most Collectible Vintage Star Wars figures

Yesterday I discussed how Hasbro is resurrecting the Rocket Firing Boba Fett figure this year. That figure has become a “Holy Grail” for many Star Wars collectors. There are many different figures that have become popular and collectible for whatever reason in the vintage Kenner figure line.  Many become popular because of an error made in production, some become popular because they were released at the very end so only limited numbers exist today.

Let’s take a look at the six of the rarest and most collectible vintage Star Wars figures ever made.  All of the figures in this list were officially released to retail and aren’t prototypes or mockups.  They are actual figures.

Blue Snaggletooth Sears Cantina Adv Set
Blue Snaggletooth – Released in 1978 as part of the Sears exclusive Star Wars Cantina Adventure Set. Blue Snaggletooth was supposed to be half as tall and in a red-suit.  The mistake happened due to a miscommunication by Lucasfilm.  Essentially, Lucasfilm sent over a black and white headshot of the alien and Kenner “made up” the blue suit and his height because they had nothing to compare to. This was later corrected which only created demand for the incorrect tall, blue figure (as these things tend to do).  Blue Snaggletooth has become legendary in Star Wars collecting circles.  It’s not as rare as one might think, but they aren’t exactly plentiful and the popularity of this variation keeps the demand high.

Vinyl Cape Jawa Cloth Jawa
Vinyl-cape Jawa – Of the original 12 vintage Kenner Star Wars figures in 1978, the very last one issued to retail was the Jawa. He first appeared as you see him on the left, wearing a plastic (vinyl) cape. As the line of Star Wars figures proved to be hugely popular, Kenner switched the Jawa to a cloth cape (on right) because it made the figure look better.  By doing this, it created a situation in which the vinyl cape Jawa is now an extremely rare collectible.  This one is not as well known as the Blue Snaggletooth to people outside the Star Wars collecting community, but Star Wars collectors know the specifics of this VERY well.  Vinyl cape Jawa is one of the most faked vintage figures of all time due to it’s high price on the secondary market.  All you have to do is take a vintage Obi-Wan, remove the cloak, cut it to size then place it on a Jawa.  If you are good enough (and have zero scruples), you can affix the figure to a used Star Wars 12 back card and you have something that may get you thousands of dollars from a collector that doesn’t know any better.  However, someone willing to pay thousands for this figure variation WILL know better.

DT Luke DT Ben DT Darth Vader
Double Telescoping Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader – “Double telescoping” is a term used for the original mechanics of the lightsaber action feature on Luke Skywalker, Ben Kenobi and Darth Vader.  If you look at the above pics, you can see the lightsaber opens up into two parts.  One part comes directly out of the hand and the second part comes out of the very tip.  This was done as a cheap way to give the lightsaber some length.  However, Kenner was not happy with this and changed the mechanics to a single piece of plastic.  Not many of these “double telescoping” figures actually made it to retail, which makes them doubly rare.

Brazilian Droids Vlix – Vlix is an obscure villain from the often maligned Star Wars cartoon, Droids.  So how is it that this character no one has ever heard of is considered probably the rarest commercially released Star Wars figure ever?  Well, the Droids line of figures (as well as the cartoon) did not fare too well, so it was canceled in the US after the first series of figures.  However, Kenner had already developed and prototyped the second series of figures before the line was canceled (including our friend, Vlix, up there).  Glasslite held the Droids figure rights in Brazil and somehow got the Vlix figure on card and in stores before everything was canceled.  No other region in the world was able to release a Vlix on card.  As a consequence, very few of these carded Vlix figures exist, probably around a dozen…or LESS.

POTF Yak Face Tri Logo Yak Face
Yak Face – Mr Face here is highly sought after as he was at the tail end of the Kenner vintage line and never offered in the United States.  He was sold in Australia, Asia and Canada, but never made it to the States.  Also, he was one of the last figures offered in the Star Wars Power of the Force line (pic on the left) so he was made in limited numbers.  Yak Face was also offered on a “Tri Logo” card in Europe (pic on right) in higher quantities but he came without the collector coin and no weapon.

SW Boba Fett
Star Wars Boba Fett – Considering Boba Fett is one of the more popular characters, it’s not surprising that one of his figures is one of the rarest and most collectible.  Boba, as a figure, started out as the first Star Wars mail away figure, in the now infamous “rocket firing” figure.  When that was done, as Kenner was gearing up for Empire Strikes Back, they decided to release Boba on a card for anyone that didn’t get the mail away figure.  What’s interesting is that they released Boba on one of the last releases of the Star Wars cards.  Boba wasn’t even in Star Wars and he got released on a Star Wars card.  His next release would, obviously, be on an Empire Strikes Back card.  So it’s easy to see how having a vintage Boba Fett carded, on the original Star Wars card (which he wasn’t even in) is highly collectible.  Also, this is one of only three Star Wars figures that used original artwork instead of a still from the movie.  The others were Power of the Force Anakin Skywalker and the Star Wars Walrus Man.  Also, the Boba Fett released on a Tri Logo European card was cast in a lighter shade of gray, which makes it also collectible.

Now, I know immediately people are going to ask why I didn’t include “rocket firing” Boba Fett.  Mainly for the reason that I stated above, it was a prototype and never “officially” released as a figure.  All of the vintage “rocket firing” Bobas you see are only sample mockups and not intended to be an official product.  That is why I didn’t put it on the list.  There are many prototypes in people’s collections now that are, for the most part, rarer than the ones I list here.  Let’s take a look at a few of these.  I’ve already talked about rocket firing Boba Fett, so here are three other prototypes.

White cloak Bib Fortuna
White Cloak Bib Fortuna Prototypes – This looks odd, but this is a packaging prototype used by Kenner to determine bubble size and how the figure would sit inside its bubble.  At this point, Bib Fortuna was a new figure, so his cardback was probably not ready so they just affixed it to an older Walrus Man card.  Also, the Bib Fortuna figure was not released with a white cloak.  The production figure had a brown cloak, further proving this is just a prototype.  There is also a picture of a Bib Fortuna in a red cloak, but these have never been proven to exist outside of Kenner product photography samples.

han trench coat prototype
Han Solo in Trench Coat (with no camouflage) – This is a very similar situation to Bib Fortuna.  This is a packaging test to determine if the figure will fit comfortably inside the bubble.  Also similar, this Han’s trench coat doesn’t have the camouflage pattern that the production figure would have.

Revenge Boba Revenge Luke X-Wing
Revenge of the Jedi proof cards – This one isn’t a figure, but the card that held the figure.  Return of the Jedi was originally titled Revenge of the Jedi.  Many of you probably already know that, but did you know that it was a last minute change?  Because it was such a late change, Kenner had already mocked up a set of 49 cards with the original Revenge title.  These cards were produced as proofs and prototypes, but never released to stores.  Since the name change happened very late and very abruptly, many companies had also already mocked up products with the logo.  These Revenge prototypes and proofs are highly sought after in the collectibles market because they showcase what may have been.

Those are some of the most widely sought after Star Wars collectibles.  They can bring thousands of dollars on the secondary market.  However, you have to obtain them first, and that’ll also set you back thousands of dollars.

    • Hello, I have all the Obi Wan, Luke, and Darth Vader. All Kenner first distributions but none of them still have the light saber and Darth does not have the cloak. All are in very good condition and I am curious what these are worth w/o the light sabers and cloak. Can anyone give me an idea?

    • Actually, they did release some of the REVENGE OF THE JEDI action figures. I grew up in Philadelphia, and I found a bunch at a Rite Aid on Market Street in 1986. I was only 12 at the time but I understood the potential value. However it was a couple of years after RETURN OF THE JEDI had come out and the general interest in Star Wars had waned. Anyway, there were 8 of the figures still in the package. They were the more obscure and less popular figures. They were pretty scuffed up after languishing on the shelf for, literally, years. The plastic bubble was crushed on 3 of them, but still glued to the cardboard. They were on clearance and I got the lot for under $10. I held on to them for years. After I dropped out of college in 1994 I ended up selling all of them plus 3 of my large Kenner Star Wars figures and 4 GI Joe Zartan figures ( also still in the box) for a whopping $75. I regret a lot of things in my life, but this one truly haunts me.

  2. I do not. Blue Snaggletooth is probably the easiest one on this list to get, but I never got him.

  3. I agree with you actually, I believe! Will that possibly be workable so that you can get your webblog translated directly into Spanish? English is actually my second language.

  4. Extremely nice article. Really hit on some of outstanding ideas. Thanks for putting that together. Adding this blog in my RSS feed!

  5. hi ive got a boba fett figure rocket firing year 1979 by kenner. So is this rare then?

  6. Glen dePedro Says:

    Half of me wants to make fun of all of you for your interest in star wars figures, and the other half wants to buy the complete collection. I had a halfway decent collection between 1977 and 1980, but always wanted more. Where are they now? How many things do you wish you never got rid of as a child?

  7. I have a Lobot in its package 1981 Empire Strikes back and he has two Left Arms…..What is that worth??

  8. I have a good collection of Vintage POTF Star Wars..I’ve just kept them..hope to pass them on to my son..what do you want me to collect..Stamps

  9. andy bolton Says:

  10. paul benjamin Says:

  11. Stephanie Says:

    Lol, I have 2 of the telescoping Darth vaders. One with cape and plastic saber, one without cape and saber. Just found them in my grandma’s stuff, along with a C3po and a yoda 🙂 I remember playing with them when I was little!

  12. peter krauss Says:

    I collected the figures from the first 3 movies complete…over a hundred pristine on cards…anybody have a clue as to value…???

  13. Can I just say what a relief to discover somebody who truly knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You actually know how to bring an difficulty to light and make it important. A lot more persons need to read this and understand this side from the story. I cant believe youre not a lot more well-known because you definitely have the gift.

  14. when did this page come out?

  15. In my opinion this are very good hints and thank you for giving your opinion… also nice blog! Congratulations….

  16. Steve fertal Says:

    I have an original 12back complete set with a tie fighter x-wing and land speeder my number is 6107048180 I was wondering if you know it’s value

  17. If you actually have what you say you have, then you are sitting on a gold mine depending on the condition of the cards/boxes.

    12 carded 12 back Star Wars figures could conceivably fetch upwards of $4000. About $300 each. Probably more, but the market is low right now.

  18. i have the 1978 darth vader , luke skywalker , obi wan , jawa , and the boba fett.

  19. i have darth vader complete in packet jawa in packet and 2 yak faces 1 with and 1 without packet

  20. I have 3 Star Wars Next Generation figures, unopened and still has wal-mart price tag on them. 1 is Ambassador Spock, 1 is Lieutenant Worf, and 1 is Borg. Though they are not mint, they are in great condition. I would like to know there worth and if anyone is interested in buying them. Will be glad to send pix.

  21. I have a picked up what I think is a very rare star wars action figure in a charity shop yesterday. It marking is not Kenner. It is L.F.L 1981 which I presume is Lucas Films Ltd. I’ve never been able to get hold of this one before. And did have an avid collection before a house fire welded the Rancor monsters are on the the top of the millenium falcon and dwarfed each of my 130 figures by 10%.

    If I send you a picture. Would you be able to evaluate it? It’s not in the box unfortunately and has had use. But is rare (I believe)

    Plse send me an email if you’re interested

  22. Hi ive just cleared out my loft and found
    loads of stars wars figures and other bits

    if there worth anything ?

  23. Willing to buy STAR WARS FIGS! send all requests to my email... Says:

    Sounds like some cool stuff! Send all your information to my email address and lets see if we can get some deals done.

    • James Veloski Says:

      Hi. Believe it or not, my mom purchased the Star Wars figures for herself when they first came out. I obtained them after she died. They are still in their original packaging and some are what i am told are “unpunched”. The only problem is she gently tore off the back of some in order to get the proof of purchase Hasbro seal. In turn she sent them to obtain the i guess now famous Boba Fett Rocket Figure. My question is does tearing the back off effect the price that much and can you possibly tell me what the Boba Fett is worth? It’s still in its clear plastic pkg and i have the orig mailing box in came in. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you, Jim

      • It affects the value a bit,but if they are hasbro they are not worth much,those came out in the 90’s after Kenner was bought by hasbro,now if they are kenner then you got something!!!

    • STEPHANIE Says:

Contact me: alderd [at]

  32. julian palomo Says:

    I have two 1978 Darth Vader jackets for kids that i’ve have from back then. I looking to sell then I well upload picture some time this week. Anybody interested please contact me.

  33. Smosh Rogalski Says:

    I have recently come across a Revenge of the Jedi Proof Card Luke Hoth, and a Power of the Force proof card of a figure that was not actually produced on the card back – Imperial Commander, (also have the coin, but i believe that it was available via mail order. I’m not having much coming across a current value for these things. I know that years ago they were worth several hundred dollars..

    I am curious of their value and willing to sell them for a fair price if anyone is interested.

    contact me at

    I have a lot of other collectables that i have yet to even catalog, my father once owned a company called Starpieces and he is no longer capable of managing it.

  34. Some people here have some awesome stuff! The best one I have is a mint condition Dath Vader signed by David Prowse (the guy in the DV suit from the original trilogy). I don’t know why people are dying to sell, it might be worth holding onto for a few more years when the market picks up again 🙂

  35. Jay Hooson Says:

    Does anyone have info on a box set that i think came out before the original Star Wars movie. There were 4 figures included. It was mailed in a white box with no markings. They are smaller in size than the standard figure sized. Think it included Luke Skywalker, chewbacca, Leia, but will have to check again. My wife got it way back when and we’ve had it in our closet.

    • It sounds like your wife has an “early bird edition” mail away kit. If it is complete and the figures are in good condition, it definitely has some value. If the Luke figure has the double telescoping Lightsabre (which means the thick plastic extends AND the thin plastic extends further), it is worth significantly more. Feel free to email me if you have additional questions.

  36. I don’t know much about Star wars figures, but my son collected them. i ran across most of his collection and he has several of the “rare’ ones–but i’m not sure which guns go to which figure etc, all his stuff is in a box! Anyway, he has bobafet, and the tiny little figure in the vinyl cape the jawa, also telescoping luke and obi-but the holes are in their hands, no light sabers–probably they are around here somewhere…anyway, looking to price these or get rid of them to interested parties. he has quite a few figures, none mint, all played with.

  37. I have the blue snaggletooth,yakface, and I’m working on getting a hollow cheek sandperson(tuskan raider)which is not mentioned,but I recently acquired two tie interceptors that the owner is claiming are prototypes of the toys,they are 6″ at its widest,but are done up exactly like the toys in 3 3/4″,if anybody has info on these I would appreciate it,or where to look to see if I can verify. Thanks!!!

  38. And if you watch the movie et,there’s a scene where Elliot was showing et his star wars figures and one is a blue snaggletooth……

  39. Can anyone give me an estimated value on good condition, loose, double telescoping Vader and Obi?

  40. Boba Fett is in the original Star Wars, but the scene was cut when George Lucas cut the scene with Jabba played by a human actor.

  41. I have a 1984 Star wars pedal car made by Huffy for the movie promotion 2-3 hundred made . Never sold in stores only given away. Who would I talk to about selling such an item. Is there an annual auction or sale in the US anywhere around Arknasas? If anyone has an idea please let me know. Thanks

  45. D Lashley Says:

    I have in stock, one -Revenge of the Jedi, proof cards #69620 At-At Commander with unpunched hole. Need to know if anyone can help with the value of this item.

    • The 48 back revenge of the jedi proof cards are common, plus the At-At CDR isn’t that desired of a figure like the main characters. If this is the standard proof and in MINT condition you are looking at about $250-$300 USD.

      There are 5 different proof card versions. shoot me an email if you have more questions.

  46. Hey everyone. I have come across an obi wan telescoping light saber figure and I’m eager to find out what it’s worth. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  49. Richard Purvis Says:

    Hi All,

He told me they were George Lucas own photos he took of the actors while filming. I wanted to see if that sort of thing is collectable and wondered if you guys knew who I would tak to about getting some kind of value for insurance

  50. Brian O'Reilly Says:

  53. I have a Revenge of the Sith Anakin Skywalker figure with a correctly printed card, and the exact item with “Darth Vader” printed in the name space on the card. It was obviously a misprint but I can’t find any info on pricing for this item. (Both are unopened.) Any hints for me anyone?

  59. We have a vintage vinyl cape jawa but it is an Australian released one, so the cape is slightly redder than the American released ones. Its genuine, as my fella has owned it since he was a boy, so no dodgy cutting of Obi-Wan Kenobi cape with this fella! It’s not carded but still in great condition…I’ve written bloody assignments on this figure for Uni for Museum Collection Management! haha love it!!!

  60. We have some figures including the 1978 Obi Wan and Darth Vader DT (at least it appears to be…I am no expert on this stuff!). Also the blue Snaggletooth, among others. Would consider selling.

  72. Hi! I have 93 vintage STAR WARS-Figuresfor SALE!

    The are all from Kenner, Original First Edition, bought between 1978 and 1983.

    They are loose, but in very good or good condition. My prices are from 2006, since that’s the newest Star Heroes Collector-Catalogue I could find and which I took as a reference (of course the prices differ where the condition is not absolutely mint)… Since 2006 the prices certainly rose, but I stick with those from the Collector-Catalogue of ’06. However, I’d love to sell them “in one go”, in one bundle. So, if you’re a serious collector or a re-seller, have a look at the photos, price and descriptions on:

    and don’t hesitate to get in touch with me via the comment-button on the website or via e-mail at

  121. Phillip Hamilton Says:

    Sorry to burst your bubble about the “rocket firing “Boba Fett”. But, there were working toys built, using production tooling and the production manufacturing process. These were limited to about 80 to 100 pieces and were shipped from HK to the Product Integrity Department at Kenner in Cincinnati Ohio. They were produced for the specific purpose of being used to qualify the product for production by means of the product reliability testing and product safety testing. I say this because I was the reliability technician who was responsible for the testing and evaluation of the product. The items were sent directly to me. There was one shipment and one shipment only of the rocket firing figures which arrived in a box about the size of a shoe box. The items were individually packaged in plastic bags, None were ever produced on a blister card. I performed the testing required, which resulted in the destruction of all of the units with exception of around 20 pieces which were unharmed. I personally kept the 20 which were still in good working condition and over the first year or two I gave them away to the children of my friends as gifts or birthday presents and such. About a year ago, one my old friends looked me up and reminded me that I gave 2 of the figures with the working rocket launcher to his son—- and they still have them. Over the years I have tried, on occasion to find out who else I gave these items to, but have struck out.

    To the best of my knowledge there are 2 authentic production units in existence. The others are either trashed or buried in someone’s basement or attic.

    The above narrative about there only being mock-ups or prototypes is totally false.

    The Items I have described are true production units made from production tooling in a production enviorment.

  122. Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice even as you amend your site, how can i subscribe for a weblog
    web site? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I have been tiny bit familiar of this your broadcast provided shiny clear

  123. Phillip Hamilton Says:

    Contrary to your current beliefs, there was one and only one preproduction runs of the rocket firing Boba Fett which was made specifically to be sent and used in the Kenner Product integrity department for product safety and reliability testing. These were NOT prototype, mock-ups or any other such items. Thet were produced from production tooling on genuine production lines and painted and decorated by production people and production processes. There were about 80 to 100 pieces produced and shipped Cincinnati to my attention. I did the testing and wrote the reports. About 20 units survived the testing protocol and I personally retained them and gave them out to friends and family over the next year or two—– so there are a few real production figures somewhere in the world. I know the location of 2 of them. Chances are the balance have long ago hit the dustbin of time.

    But you are dead wrong to say there are none in existence— only mock-ups

    • Hi Phillip

      I’ve just been browsing this site for info on star wars figures.
      Like many mums in the 80’s I bought my son many star wars related items.

      I still have a card and figure of Boba Fett from about 1984. The card no. is 39250 ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ with a logo of Free! Revenge Of The Jedi’. On the back of the card are pictures of a fair amount of star war figures. The special offer is for a free Admiral Ackbar.

      The blister cover is long gone!

      There was another one but it went ‘missing’.

      I still have one of my son’s old membership card for ‘Bantha Tracks’ club and an old ‘cinema’ poster? which I obtained for him from a toy shop near our local cinema and was closing down.
      Poster is The Empire Strikes Back. There are tack holes on it as was stuck on his bedroom wall.

    • hi Phillip, i just wanted to share a story with you. a sad story actually. when i was a young kid right before Return of the Jedi came out, my mom apparently recieved a phone call from the store manager that my parents knew, of our local Kmart. i guess he told her that there were “Revenge” of the Jedi figures in the store. she packed us up, or atleast me (i don’t remember my bro and sis being there), and we went to the store and my mom filled the shopping cart up with all of the figures from the endcap. every single one. i assume the store was told to send the items back to the manufacturer or what ever, but he called her since they were all friends, and knew that my parents were heavily into collectables i guess. so she had the figures now, and explained why to me. well, as i now know the figures ended up in our attic for some reason. here’s the sad part. some time after that, while i was away in the army, they had the roof re-done. i guess they had to replace some of the plywood, because later in the year my mom went up to get Christmas decorations, and the attic was cleared out! they stole everything. as i’m told, my mom came down in tears. all of our stuff was gone, my old blanky and all. i was, and am also very upset MY Micronauts from when i was very young being gone. they were taken away from me after my baby sis started putting the Micronaut figures’ feet up her nose. i think i was mentally damaged by that, because i started collecting the things again as an adult, and practically foam at the mouth when i look at the ones i don’t have online. anyway, the thieves got away. my parents felt weird about accusing somebody’s employees of stealing 6+ months later. plus they had no proof really. anyway, that’s my story. i didn’t realize how valuable and rare those things actually were until the newer Star Wars movies started coming out. some sites i’ve visited were actually saying that the figures were a myth, and never really existed. i know that to be false, because i saw the things with my own eyes.

      • Hi Bill

        Have read your comments and I commiserate with you.
        When things like this happen we can keep our dignity, even though it’s maddening!!
        I take comfort from the fact that there may be someone out there who may be horrified to learn that they have received ‘suspect goods’.

        June S.

      • Bill I need to speak to you about this, ive been arguing with a bunch of people on a facebook forum as I used to own a revenge figure and card. I hope you have notifications on

  124. I still have a r2d2 in an unopened package with trading card but the package is labeled c3po. Value? Wish to sell

  125. What’s up, its nice piece of writing concerning media print,
    we all be aware of media is a enormous source of information.

  126. Steve Vee Says:

    I own the even rarer Australian Jawa plastic cape, with the Empire Strikes Back package. So yes the myths are true. Got this when I was a kid back in 1980, nearly sold it few years ago for about $10, didnt know what it was worth, lucky I didnt. Sadly sold a whole box of figures, no idea what was it all worth, kicking myself now, I am sure there was some rare ones in there. No idea what this one is worth now, I have the card but its cut up to a shape of just the picture and logo, was a silly child. haha. Help me out

  127. I have the first shot prototype of Obi Wan Kenobi with 2 sabers. Any idea of the value? It is very rare as most are with 1 saber and this action figure is with 2 sabers + AFA serial 10697738.

    Thx for letting me know

  128. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between superb usability and appearance. I must
    say you’ve done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads super
    quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

  129. Says:

    I have a Luke, Obi and a Vader, all with the retractable light sabers and Obi and Vader have full vinyl capes!
    When I was a kid, I thought the small part of the saber sticking out looked bad, so I cut that part off of them so that you couldn’t see the saber, until you extended it out!
    They are loose, but in good shape other than the small part of the sabers cut off!
    Are they still worth much and how much possibly?

    I also have a 15″ Chewbacca, but his arms have came apart where the rubber band held them to his body, but could be replaced.
    He has the belt and gun, what might he be worth?


  130. Dave yorke Says:

    I have chewbacca, c3po, r5-d4, darth vader, and chief chirpa the ewok . All unwrapped in great condition, is anybody interested.

  131. Eric Sivula Says:

  145. HI, i can confirm 100 % around 15 years ago i was offered a red cloaked bib fortuna and several grey snow troopers from a ex palitoy employee was not fake these existed but unsure how many

  146. Can anyone tell me why it is so hard to find a 1981 empire Strikes Back Boba Fett with a 45 card back ? Trying to find the value.

    • Daniel Lotz Says:

      Condition is everything when estimating value. 45 boba in C8 condition should be around $2k.

      Good luck
