While I searched though my collection of bits, I found a couple of really old/limited edition figures.

I'm tempted to sell these on E-bay, but should I wait a couple of more Decades?
What do you think the bid would be for these models?

Kroot Shaper Angkhor Prok.
40K 25th anniversary Crimson Fist Captain. (Mint condition)
2 Eldar Exarchs from 1985 (in a really old blister pack).
2 Metal Harlequins + Harlequin jetbike fairing.

Do you think these figure have any value?

How long is a piece of string? Find each on ebay, watch them, and see what they actually go for. I've seen all of them go for silly money, or for 99p (or not sell because even sillier money was asked) over time.

Then decide, accepting that it's still a gamble.

The Captain is on eBay a lot and never sells.

The Exarchs... maybe 3-4€ per. Dunno how many the blister includes. No more than 20€ per blister.

The harlequins: 2-3€ per. The harlequin jetbike: ~20€ each.

The first Exarchs were sculpted in 1990. You can find this info also on their slot.

I was just going by the print on the backside of the blister. I can only see one side of their slots.
It's a blister containing one Dire Avenger Exarch and one Fire dragon Exarch. It even has scales on its armour :)

Makes sense. They used the same blister packaging for Eldar from the late 80s through the early 90s. The date was probably for the packaging and not the models themselves.

Back in those days you could get a blister of 5 Aspect Warriors for like 7 or 8 dollars U.S.

Damn I'm old ;)

You can wait a couple more decades, but it's probably not going to make much of a difference. Miniatures don't have the same kind of potential collector value that actual collectibles do.

I got my Angkhor Prok when I was buying a bunch of kroot from a guy and he asked if wanted it too and he just threw it in.
