    I went to some Yard Sales today, nothing really that good but I came across this Star Trek stuff and I figured why not and bought them. was only $10 for all of it. ive never been a Trek fan but I figured since everything is sealed and in excellent shape I could possibly sell em to someone that is lookin for em

    the Phaser and Communicator are open on one end but they both still have the zip ties, instructions and baggies. as far as I can tell the Phaser has never been taken out of the box as the zip ties and tape are all still connected to it. but I do know that they both work perfectly though

    if anyone can help me, what would any of it be worth?

    I don't know, but pretty cool. The only two things I'd want from Star Trek, is a good display model of Captain Picards Enterprise, and a good 12" figure of him and Data.

    I've always heard that Playmates' Star Trek stuff was so massively overproduced that almost none of it is worth what it originally sold for at retail. And besides that, the more recent Art Asylum and Diamond Select product is far superior. Honestly, I'd almost say you overpaid for what you got.

    That Phaser and Comunicator are worth more than $10 each. Man am I jealous.

    What size is that 1701-D?

    ^ Huh, how about that. I just checked eBay and there's a phaser going for $15.50. I'm somewhat surprised. But then, I haven't checked the market for Playmates Star Trek toys in years, maybe it's coming back a little.

    You'll probably make a profit selling the role-play toys. But the action figures you'll likely have to practically give away.

    Those Roleplays were good quality. I wish I still had mine from back in the day

    Damn, that Enterprise looks fantastic! Wish I could justify plunking down 150 for it. And of course, it's limited edition... ugh. Why is EVERYTHING Star Trek limited edition, exclusive and numbered? I'm pretty sure that's what killed the Playmates line. Which is as good a segueway as any into the OP: The phaser and Communicator might be able to make a few bucks, but those figures aren't even worth the materials they're made of. There's a comic book store nearby that has a ton of them all still in package and they've been sitting there for nearly a decade... at about half retail price!

    The same reason that the season boxsets were all priced at $150 each when they first came out: because people know that the really passionate Star Trek fans will gladly pay through the nose for these things. Sure, you could make them cheap and available, but you'll rake in a lot more cash if you charge exorbitant prices for them.

    I'm still on the fence with getting that 1701-D. I have a huge hole in my Trek ship collection that needs a D model to fill it, but the end of this year is already looking pretty expensive for me as far as toys go. I'll probably decide to get it right as it sells out and then nerd rage over my own incompetence. But what's new right? :D 

    And BBTS has several Picard and Data figs...

    I just wish what size it was, I don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb.

    Both sites I linked have the measurements. It's a little over 12" in length.

    Ebay:
    I'd try the figures at $2-3 a piece, I did that with my lot of 5 loose figure(you have two of them right now) and got around $20, with was maybe two months ago.

    Yes those were done a while back by a customizer named Nanjin. We are still wainting to hear about his plans for movie versions.
