Vectis Auctions 24th & 25th Feb 2016

Postby SublevelStudios » Wed Feb 24, 2016 12:26 pm

Beeches sale 24th
http://www.vectis.co.uk/Page/ViewAuctio ... 54&DayNo=1

Star Wars and Toy Related sale 25th
http://www.vectis.co.uk/Page/ViewAuctio ... 54&DayNo=2

Anyone bidding?

Only 3 things really caught my eye, the first was this:
http://www.vectis.co.uk/Page/ViewLot.as ... 0&Start=60
but it went way beyond what I was prepared to pay. Ended up at £320 plus fees. Rare thing.

I did get one of the Palitoy 'TOYS ARE HERE' shelf talkers for £100 plus fees though, easily the hardest of the 3 to find.

Anyone land anything?

I got another one of those ESB cardboard displays. I won one last time but these are in much better condition. Due to the qty available this one cost me £50 less than my previous one :) Which means I overpaid for the first one :(

I have a daft number of bids in tomorrow but I expect to win a couple of pieces only. I better otherwise I'm in deep, deep *{^%^#*!

Hi I managed to get myself a Palitoy Han Hoth and At AT Driver far a fair price (much better then the price I would pay on eBay). I was prepared to pay more as I like the story behind the auction and the fact I will be the first owner of the card.

I've bought a Jedi Leia bespin (£90) and Luke Jedi (£90) + Darth Vader and Han Bespin ( £130) which were together and have scrapes on the card and bubbles I think.
I seen them at the last minute since the auction didn't mention Star Wars until I delved a bit deeper hopefully they're okay.
Ta, Brian

I actually thought most of the MOCs sold today were expensive, especially with fees taken in to account and the fact there were multiples of each. But I guess we all have to get used to this era of anything with "Star Wars" on it selling for over £100. Most of those were £40-60 MOCs a couple of years ago. There's a few things I'm interested in tomorrow, but not holding out much hope. Especially as we're all bidding against each other by the look of it :lol:

Cheers Marc, the estimates Vectis provide don't mean shit, and Palitoy factory sealed stuff is hard to come by. Not the most desirable of pieces, but happy to have won one, I think.......

Congrats on that window/door display btw 8)

Been down to Thornaby (90 mile RT) to collect and pay. Yes it was £384 in the end. I'm happy with them all, the scrapes cleaned off and the bubbles are great. The vader and han cards are a bit bumpy and some card edge fading etc obviously been in a damp place but they're nice and bright. The Leia and Luke have the usual yellowed bubbles, unpunched and very little to fault them apart from some slight card warp.

I couldn't believe how much stuff there was in the main room for tomorrow. I should have brought a camera and posted it on here but was more concerned with seeing the figures in the flesh after handing over the cash.
