Bought this lot of LEGO at an auction

Hello this is my fist post, I bought this lot of Star Wars Legos at an auction for $40 over the weekend. I was just curious what they are worth. I figured you guys would have more expertise than me. None of it is factory new, but they all have the boxes with instructions and seem to have all the pieces still.

Thanks!

4483- AT-AT
10019- Rebel Blockade Buster
9748- Droid Developer Kit

    Nice haul!! I would say the most useful thing to do would be to establish if there are pieces missing, either using an inventory (others will be able to tell you which are the most complete; there's lots online) or by building them up (which would be more fun). Complete sets are worth more, so you might replace any missing pieces from Bricklink.

    I've found it useful to search Ebay for recently sold sets, rather than just looking at what's currently on sale - what people are asking for a set and what people are actually paying can be very different things... and of course there's always the option of selling on Bricklink itself, but one of the others can tell you more about that.

    Hmm.. looks like around $80, nice little profit you got there.  I'll take them off you if you like...

    ^ I'll give you $81 for them.

    damn you @SprinkleOtter !

    Anyway, to be a bit more helpful - welcome to the forum :)
    Some of those are both a fair bit - but you need to check they are complete, the easiest and most fun way is to build them!

    If you are selling them on Ebay, you probably want to build them, so you can show buyers what the set looks like.

    The kind of person who sells them off at under 10% of their value, so not all bad.

    Thanks for the insight so far guys, I am building them currently to see if everything is there. It also came with all the character figures as well

    $40? That's insane. Assuming everything is there, average prices on Bricklink (within US) are:

    4483 - $153.94
    7152 - $61.34
    9748 - $81.09
    10019 -$769.59
    10175 - $541.93

    That comes to about $1600. That is absolutely outstanding. Looks like some are selling for less on ebay but still based on a $40 investment you are making a killing.

    Are those new/sealed prices or would that be for used?

    @cbrksy92 this is used pricing. You would be making a profit off those damn boxes if there were no pieces. Truly a dream haul!
