Need major help with my grandads Star Trek Puzzles

Hi all im pleased to meet you guys.
If this post is in the wrong place please feel free to move it as i did not have a clue were to post this.

Please any help or wise words would be verry helpful.

i have been given by my grandad who was a massive star trek fan two puzzles which are sealed.The problem is i plan to sell these items but don't have a clue what they are and what to sell them for and would like to avoid selling something that could be worth more.
If i could just ask you to take a little bit of your time to help me find out the price i should sell these for and what they actaully are would be amazing.

Im guessing they were put away and never to be used as they are completly sealed and not a mark on them.

They are dated 1993, a time when ST merchandising was at a peak, so I'd assume that these were available in enormous quantities. Keep your eyes posted on the eBay auction site to see what prices these go for. Your advantage is that they are sealed, but what fun is a jigsaw you never open?

Here's a TMP one of the same ilk, also by King:

30 pounds in UK.

Why not have a look and see what comparable Star Trek puzzles are selling for on eBay?

There were tie-in jigsaws for every decade's Trek. Lots of TOS and quasi and actual TAS in the 70s. I have one of the TMP sets (profile pics of six aliens) in a frame. There were cutaway Enterprise pics for ST II, and lots of retro puzzles celebrating the 20th, 25th and 40th anniversaries.

Where have you been?
