In the 90's I started buying the re-release of the Kenner action figures. I probably have a 100+ still in the package, along with vehicles, etc...

How much money with this be worth in 15-20 yrs?

Very little.

Most of the re-releases and the new trilogy were over produced. EVERYONE bought them thinking they would fetch a big cash later.

About as much of a chance as my Michael Jordan "Space Jam" toys.

as one who got almost all of the original stuff as a kid in 77,78 and beyond....that would be no.

i have some old comics in mint condition and that might be enough to buy some books and a couple semesters but it's either going to be a scholarship or a miracle now.

In 15-20 years, they could be worth nothing because of the economy.

If they are worth something, I'd say you could probably get around $1500 for your whole collection. Definitely not enough for college.

Also, I would consider unloading them when the new movies start coming out. Their value will probably spike a little then.
