Hey guys,
I came across some (mostly) vintage Star Wars toys but since I've never been a SW fan, I don't know what they are. Can you guys help identify these so I know what to list them as for trades? Any help you guys can provide would be very appreciated. Thanks!

PS: I know the guy in the upper left corner is not vintage, but didn't know anything about him.

The dual cockpit car is called a Cloud City Car or something close to that.

The white Tie-fighter is an early release of the Tie-Fighter before they became blue

The Vader, Leia and Chewie are vintage 12 inch figures. Once they brought a pretty penny as is but I don't know about now to be honest.

And I didn't scroll over far enough, that's an X-Wing with battle damage decals. I'm not sure if there were two or not. I don't recall mine ever coming with battle scaring decals.

The guy in the upper left is a plush version of one of the Bith Cantina Band Memebers and as you mention he's not vintage.

Top Row
The orange double cockpit ship is the vintage "Twin Pod Cloud Car"
moving left the brown two seater is the vintage "Land Speeder"
Then in the top right corner is a vintage "battle damaged" Xwing... with extra battle damage as it is missing the lasers on at least 2 of the wings (can't see the others) and it appears that someone has melted the cockpit in 2 places.

bottom row
Vintage 12" Darth Vader missing cape and lightsaber
Vintage 12" Chewbacca missing crossbow blaster and bandolier strap and pouch.
Vintage 12" Princess Leia missing her belt, shoes and hair brush. And her costume is pretty filthy.
C3-PO necklace charm. I think that one was from Avon.
Vintage TIE fighter. Looks like someone has burned the bottom and used a black magic marker to color on the body of the ship and the front window.

Thanks for the ID's guys! The condition on them is pretty rough - most likely why I was told, "If you want them, take them or they'll just get thrown away". Thanks again!

The Bith is Figrin D'An- and he is from the POTF2 Star Wars Buddies line-around 1997/1998 - there are about 10 or so in that pre episode 1 line-- (Others include Chewie (2 versions), Max Rebo, jabba, Wampa, Salacious Crumb, Jawa, R2, Yoda, C-3PO)-- They usually run around 5.00 a piece with the Tag Attached, One version of the CHewie goes for a little more do to a running change release of a different color bandolier..
