Nice pick ups.

Seem to be changing focuses a lot recently as I'm not willing to pay 300% on what I was paying 5 years ago. Especially with MOCs. It took 30 years for a Rancor Keeper go from £1 to £30, and then 4 years to jump an extra £90. Crazy considering you can buy them daily.

What's also surprising is that any other side focuses are suffering the same price hikes. I've have seen Die-Casts and especially oddball going for crazy money. But the reality is that they are selling. That's the most surprising. ESB placemats that were sitting on eBay for £5 for years not so long ago, are going for £30 in a bidding war. If I was smart, I would sell everything now.

I'm not smart. Dam.

Let's try the 12 inch line. They are still quite cheap.

I blame you for the hike in oddball prices Grant, you need to stop publicising this stuff so well! :wink:
Looking for Palitoy 12 back Jawa and Empire carded Dengar, Leia Hoth, and Snowtrooper. Damaged cards or reseals OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

Who's buying all the oddball for crazy money? At this rate we'll all be buying POTF2 as an investment.

Apparently he was a big film buff and collected posters and film reels! Who knew! Anyway, no questioning its provenance, but the exact date may of course be a false memory.
Anyway he's clearing out and I got one, my son got one and my brother in law (her son) got one and the quads.

Any ideas on what it is?

It transpires (Thanks Matt Fox), that this is a likely to be a Super8 advertising poster...

Matt's infomation:

"I believe your droids poster is a shop advertisement for the Super 8mm release.

I think you have the UK version, but you can see the US version here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-77-SU%20...%201711145424

Measure the width of yours, it should be 14" across (It is indeed! - Thank you). I believe there may have been a strip along the bottom, it looks like from the Ebay link that this was part of the US poster, on the UK one the shape of yours would suggest that maybe the sales details were on a separate slip perhaps. - This must be the case both mine and my son's are exactly the same and look to be cut at printers, not post production."

Bit more digging to do, but this couldn't be more helpful, Thank you Matt, you've been a massive help :D

You're very welcome! 3 of these came from the loft of your mother-in-laws brother-in-law... unbelievable what's out there. I'd be surprised if this poster even exists in double figures, far rarer than a rocket firing Fett I'm sure (although doubtless a bit more niche!). Cool find.
