Hi Rob,

Oh right fair enough. Think may have heard it thinking about it Scarborough is a great place the Sci Fi convention is always good for figures, props and actors.

Went to this toy fair on Saturday, as I was in the area, to anyone looking just for Star Wars items, I would give it a miss.
Very very little vintage, a few loose figures only, not bad for diecast if you collect that as well.
Thinking about giving Sandown park in March a go.

Thanks for the info, TBH vintage Star Wars at toy fairs is getting less and less these days Scarborough and York had very little to offer.

So it seems, this was the first fair that I have been to since starting to collect again.
The last times that I went to a toy fair in the late 90s you could always find some MOC and boxed items.
A sign of the times... :shock:
Oh well I shall spend my money here and poss Ebay.

Is a shame, eBay is where most figures are found these days. Originally I never had any interest in eBay but realised wouldn't find the rarer figures at toy fairs as they were starting to be less and less in items to buy. I remember the first toy fair I went to in Beverly would have been 10 or 11. Had £9 which for a toy fair in nothing. But the amount of Star Wars was amazing was Amazed. Went to a few more before it shut down but after the first one I went to it was never as good wasn't the quantity as that first one. Shame really as I always had more money from then on or well never mind.

As I initially mentioned, to me there is nothing better than to see, touch and feel what you are about to buy, a picture on a a screen is not the same.
I can honestly say that more times than not, when what I have bought off Ebay arrives I will see something that I didn't notice in the photo.
Oh well, times change, so I will have to change with them. :?:
I will give Sandown Park a go in March...I can't change that quickly :roll:

Does anyone here go to this fair, and if so is it good for vintage moc etc?
Is there anywhere else in the southern east that is worth going to, the internet is good, but there is nothing like having the item you are buying "in hand" and talking to like minded people.
Thanks


Brentwood is more Diecast, trains and some tv stuff, its very mixed but worth the effort, you just never know what will turn up there.
