A year or two ago my dad gave me his 1980s, mint condition “Star Wars” figures and GI Joe figures. I looked online to see how much they cost and they are worth over $2,000.

I play with them like crazy. I make battles, pose them and make movies with them. My dad likes to put Darth Vader on the TV in the living room. You probably won’t buy them, but you may find some just collecting dust in your basement or attic.
