PEZ dispensers
« on: April 30, 2003, 05:12 PM »
I have just received the rest of my needed Star Wars PEZ dispensers to finish my collection, but I have a question for everyone here.  Half of these are in their original baggies, and the others are loose.  I want to display them, and would probably want to just remove them from their baggies.  But, would that totally destroy the value of these?  I don't know the value of Star Wars PEZ dispensers, so if anyone could give me some insight here I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!

The Pez dispensors ain't worth squat really.  I've got a set of all 9 OT ones.  They came either carded or bagged.  There were also 3 additional ones released for AOTC (plus 2 rehashes).  Mine were all bagged, though I think they look much better on a card.  But yes Chris, taking them out of the bags will ruin what tiny bit of value they even had (which is basically what they retailed for, if that).  But since these are basically worthless, you shouldn't be picking these up if you're interested in their value really.  But rather just for the hell of it, as they're fun and unique (and occasionally useful) collectibles.

Here's an auction for the 9 OT carded ones for $10, that ended with no bids on it - if that gives you any indication of their value (or lack thereof)...
Complete set of 9 Star Wars Pez

Here's an opened set of all 9 (with a few extras) that ended for $2.24...
13 loose SW Pez

Here's a COMPLETE set of all 12 Pez dispencers (including the 3 AOTC ones) that ended for $11...
Set of 12 SW Pez

Here's a case of 24 that ended for $12.95...

Bagged set of all 12 for $10 ending with no bids:
Bagged set of 12 SW Pez

Best way to ever check on the value of stuff, is just to type that item into eBay's search box, have it search (which will give you active auctions), and then click "Completed Auctions" (over to the left).  That will give you a pretty accurate idea of the current market value of pretty much anything on the planet.  Here's the completed SW Pez auctions (all 396 of them)...

So anyways, you can see that they ain't worth scratch - one dollar each at most.  But they're fun little collectibles to have anyways.  Open 'em up and enjoy.  Or for just $5 - $10 go get yourself a second set of all 12 and keep it sealed so you can have it both ways...   :)

I have all of the SW PEZ(no rehashes, though :P) and I don't really care about the value, whatever it may be. Like Matt said, they're unique. Also, it's the only SW collectible that I can be sure I'll have the complete collection of. ;)

I just leave them loose:

I knew they really didn't have much value, so I almost don't know why I even posted this to begin with.

As far as the list of figures that you mentioned about Matt, there were two other ones made that are extremely valuable.  There was the silver Darth Vader and the gold C-3PO that are currently valued at $115.  There were only 500 of each made, and I would love to get one of these.  I don't own these PEZ dispensers because of value purposes, but I just didn't want to open them up if they might appreciate over time.

I'm going to rip them open for display.    :)

Thanks for the tid-bit fellas.

Dang, wife was in here when I clicked on that.  She asked if there were idiots that would pay that much for a Pez dispenser.  

Probably not worth trying to hide it, cuz she'd eventually find it anyway.  Where's that link to the master replica...

I don't think I can bring myself to pay $25 for a PEZ dispenser, although I'd love to have them all in the collection.  I'd never even heard about the gold and silver ones - I hope that's real gold and silver plating for $115.

My husband just rolled his eyes.

I've got all the regular PEZ in baggies and a couple on cards. I also nabbed a couple of SW PEZ displays from the Joann's Fabric store, so whenever we get the new house, hopefully that's how I'll be displaying 'em.

Hmmph. I was really hoping for a *particular character*, wink wink-nudge nudge, but oh well.

These just don't seem $25 nice, maybe $10-$15.

I wonder which character you're talking about here.  I really wouldn't have the slightest clue.  Boy, do you have me stumped!

HEHE!

I have the Star Wars Pez things. I opened them up and had them on one of my shelves before I packed them away. They are neat and add some fun.

They're made out of translucent plastic.  If they were made out of crystal (which actually would be very cool) these would be a few hundred dollars or more (a piece).

Well in the mail today I received a set of the PEZ. My dad bought them for me as a surprise. They are the same as the previos versions of the pez just in clear plastic except for C-3P0. He is all nice and shinny gold plated metalic. I sent some images in to Chris so that he may post them on the front page or something.

If he does not use them, then I will take some more images and post them for all to see.
