I just put a dozen bids in. Half SW half other stuff.

I’ve also done what I call “The UKS bugger up” strategy of double bidding (this time deliberately) on a couple of pieces to ensure I get them... or at least put some serious effort in!

I also think some of the non SW estimates are well out. I have put some numbers on things 4x the estimate. And I am not sure it would get it! And I’m bidding on boxes of junk to get one item. I am sort of hoping for outbids so I can not have to drive and pick up again.

Anyway, very exciting this time!

Get a condition report if bidding on the Luke stormtrooper trilogo. I won one at the last auction and returned it as the bubble was badly lifting - this might be the same one.

Had a look at the catalogue and lot 4001 is an AFA Lando that I sold on eBay in April, to what looked like a normal private buyer.

How very odd.

Funny you should say that, there is a Palitoy ESB 45b Chewy with Finland price sticker (lot 4017) that I sold a few months ago. Exact same figure.

Do you think it’s someone flipping in the hope they can ride the Vectis wave?

Or maybe a collector selling up?

Or Vectis themselves?

I thought Bossk looked familiar.
But could be someone who has decided to sell up suddenly, and doesn't fancy the ebay route not even on a £1 listing offer.
