    VALUE of Don Post Deluxe Boba Fett helmet (Slightly desperate)

    Well, over the past few weeks i've become a little desperate with rent. As such, i've even considered selling my Don Post Deluxe Boba Fett, which I thought I would never even dream of selling.
    As such, i've been browsing around for prices. As a wearable costume prop, I know people have bought them from others repainted for $150-300. Looking around in collectible circles, the price fluctuates like crazy between $750 and upwards to nearly $1500. So, as a COLLECTIBLE piece of Fett history, how much would this helmet REALLY be worth?

    Are the Don Post Deluxe Helmet Numbered ?
    As is the same for most collectibles a lower numbered item is often worth more for collectors .

    Yeah, it's #258 of 1000, but I haven't really seen any higher than 400ish which is weird

    The last one that was sold on Ebay went for 500$ US and it was in the same number range as yours (200-300).
    That was all i could find, but to be honest it all comes down to what a person is willing to pay,

    I would agree the last 3 I seen on ebay went for around $500. If you were looking to sell it fast that's what I would expect. You could probably list it for more and get it but it would likely take more time to sell.

    Yeah, I just did some googling- one actually sold sometime January this year or last year
    I've tried to find the link again, but no dice- I guess Ebay has started deleting ****

    You could bring it to a pawn shop, and get a loan on it, instead of having to sell it outright. You wouldn't get as much for it, but you'd at least have the possibility of getting it back. I had to do that with my bike once because a room mate shafted me on rent.

    I could throw it up on ebay, but I doubt it would get any bites unless I relisted it like 10 times XD
    I want to keep it within the community since I know others will appreciate it

    A thread in the Cargo hold with a link to the Auction might drum up some more interest,
    just be sure to only post links of Stuff that you personally are selling.
