'Star Wars' action figures
Toy company Kenner began selling these action figures in 1977 after the original "Star Wars" hit movie screens. The line was discontinued in 1985 but reintroduced a decade later. Many of those earliest collectibles were produced in limited quantity and can fetch a pretty penny, including a 1978 Darth Vader with a telescoping light sabre (up to $6,000) and a 1978 Jawa with vinyl cape ($2,000).
Jawa's cape was quickly replaced with a cloth version and Vader's sabre with a less-delicate single-piece version. Because these were so popular, the non-rare ones don't usually sell for large amounts.
