Went to the last one, some good bits there now and again, but it is very hit and miss. Great if you love trains and cars or the smell of stale sweat and B.O. that tends to waft through the air at these type of events.

Totally agree. More miss than hit. Vintage Star Wars tends to be thin on the ground these days. Lego seems to be the upcoming big thing at toy fairs now, with more and more sellers popping up.

I'm going to this too Carl, i've been to the last 3 or 4. There's always a few bits there mate, though, like the guys said, nothing major.
Always worth a visit in my eyes if only for an hour or so, you never know unless you go.

Guys! What time are you going? I will most likely be wearing my UK Garrison t shirt, so if you spot me, then say hello :D

I was going to try and get to this, but I've got the in-laws coming down this weekend so have been told I can't go anywhere, not even the beer fest in the village :(

Nice score Carl, I was there mate. I was looking out for you but our paths couldn't have crossed, either that or I had my head buried in vintage ! :D

Agreed Griff, there was some rich pickings for a change!

Here's my haul:

Image

MINT 12" Jawa, opened but unused £150
Palitoy Fett ESB cardback £10
Palitoy box for MLC3 with instruction sheet and insert (no vehicle) £10
Loose raised bar China Stomtrooper (no weapon) £15
Loose No COO Stormtrooper with gun £8

and bargain of the day...loose Tri Logo Fett painted dart/unpainted knee...£25.

It's always worth rooting round those loose figure boxes :wink:

Is there usually less vintage at these fairs? Tbh was hoping there would have been a little more! However I certainly didn't have the cash for much more lol
