    I'd be interested in knowing as well from someone more experienced in this. I'm tempted to say "not very much", but I don't know myself.

    I just know that I once picked up a black-suit ROTJ Luke in pretty much the same condition at a flea market for like $2, and that was at the height of the OT's resurgence in the 90s. Maybe the seller just didn't know the value, but being out-of-package and without accessories tends to take the value down substantially.

    Then again, it has been 20 years since then. My gosh.

    As someone more experienced in this, "not very much". However, I am basing that off a low quality picture.

    What I really need to see is the back of the legs where the Country of Origin markings are (This could change things).

    Chewy has green limbs which is probably plastic degradation.

    Boba Fett looks to have paint wear on his chest and his helmet looks broken. Does he have a firing missile on his back?

    Han has paint wear on his head.

    Obi wan is missing his cape and lightsaber.

    R2-D2 looks to have sticker wear. Does he have anything that pops up out of his head?

    IMO these figures are all "beaters" (heavily played with) and therefore not worth more that a few bucks each. If they had their accessories (guns and such), the accessories would likely be more valuable than the figures.

    If these figures are from your childhood keep them. You can never replace those pieces.

    If you want to learn more about vintage figures check out this link, it will give you all the basics.

    Here are some links about each of your figures.

    Chewy
    Boba Fett
    Han
    Obi wan
    R2-D2

    Hope that helps.

    I used to be into heavy collecting. I had it all...... all the Vintage characters on cards and loose.

    I sold them and used it for my down payment on my house. However, I kept my original figures that I collected with my father...
