East Bristol Auctions today

Postby UKS » Sat Jul 27, 2019 12:58 pm

MOC Yak went for 1500 + auction 25%!

That’s 1875. That’s surely ridiculous.

EV9D9 MOC POTF went for 300 + 25% = 360.

Wowsers. I guess I am not winning any bids this auction...

Still cheeper than the graded one on ebay from Usa, and the highest Vectis priced one in 2016. :o
Finding a good bubble on them is hard,like an Amanaman they are mostly dented.
Some great stuff going today mind.
so tempted by the lanspeeder, but missed that due to work issues.
Must say I really enjoyed listening to the auction today. And seeing all the old toys and games consoles. Some lovely Kenner stuff sold for a good price especially compared to the Palitoy equivalent.
Didn't think the Palitoy LXW would sell but it did go for £1k to 1 bidder.
So I'm delighted by that as I paid less few months ago for my 90 grade.

Did you notice a lot of items were bought by a buyer/buyers from France?
And I'm sure Australia was mentioned too.
It was a massive auction, 1005 lots :shock:

So much to choose from. At least you had a few items, even if you didn't get what you were really after.
Really enjoyed listening to it in the background today.

No idea this was going on - not well publicised or have I been living under a rock?
Looking for Palitoy mailers and MOCs...

They have quite a few toy auctions every year and I find the final prices are suspiciously high so I don't even bother bidding any more.

Via thesalesroom.
Although the lots are listed via them ,you have to register individually with the different auction houses to bid. ( just clicking a tab registering to bid)
But then I never knew about vectis until joining this forum, if I had I might have completed the majority years ago.
