Really great stuff on here recently, seems to go in waves of beyond the toys, then figures and ships and then back to non-toys.

Chris, that belt is something else. Never seen one of them before 8)

My first pick up during lockdown. :D

Aside from the toy line, Letraset and the Read Along Books and Cassettes, the Oral-B toothbrushes are one of the only things I can remember having as a child.

When I saw them again for the first time as a collector they evoked such great memories. The artwork and colours are fantastic and so vivid.

This is one of my first beyond the toys pick-ups and I’m really stoked to have them in such great condition.

Any suggestions on how to display them would be greatly appreciated.
Acrylic plate display would hold them nicely, I've used a couple on sigma items, inoffensive and cheap off Amazon. In actual fact I've got the same set as this and not sure why I haven't done this to display mine

Pretty excited about this one, didn’t realise until it was in hand but it’s a weapon error card!

Nothing spectacular but got the HC Ford pencil
Counter display box and a pack of Pencils in this week. Sadly rest of my HC Ford run is boxed up so can’t display too well at moment.

That looks like a pretty solid purchase to me Stuart so great find and hopefully we will get to see the rest of your HC Ford run at some point.

Some great additions recently, love watching this thread :D

Stressful work week, ended today with an arrival

These are from that fantastic guy Frank ..thank you mate!

The 5 ESBa baggies are for the 15 pack Mailer box :D the rest I will fill as well and build up the Baggie collection over a long period of time.

yes these are open baggies, but that means nothing to me for my collection, they will be displayed with pride when filled

Love these to BIts!!!!! 8)

Love those story records, Chris- excellent find 8)

Stu, that display box is great- nice pencils too.

Mike, good score on the baggies- looking forward to seeing how they turn out.

Carl, lovely Cloud Car! That's one I've been thinking about getting for a while. Please give me a shout when you sell it next week :lol:
