I think I can speak for many here and on the 'collecting circuit' when I say it's great to hear you're not going anywhere :)

Best of luck Steve, 1st beer on me next time I see you.

Steve, I just looked at the Vectis Auction catalogue, and as you mention - it is very obvious where your collection starts in the auction! An amazing array and I am sure it will do well and help you out at this difficult time.

I am sorry to hear of your separation. We haven't met in person but in conversation and podcasts you have always seemed like a very reasonable and likeable fellow. You're also physically fit and a handsome chap and so if that time comes to start dating again I am sure you'll be quite a catch! Do keep your chin up and remember that bright new beginnings often come disguised as painful endings.

All the best for Thursday and beyond Steve, I echo everyone’s sentiments above. You have some lovely items up for auction and I hope they do really, really well for you! (Except for the ones I’m bidding on obviously!) And when the dust settles (or even before!) hopefully you’ll be out for a beer very soon.

Enjoyed watching that, put a few bids in but didn't win anything. On the plus side that means you got more cash for those things 8)

Yes particularly enjoyed watching the Tri Logo miscards going up up up. I put bids in on the Kenner 21 back Han and the Early Bird Certificate package but was underbidder I think.

Can anybody tell me the current value of the EB Certificate package as I felt like it sold for an amazing price (but I have no points of reference) and I lost out when the auction ended abruptly and I couldn’t continue bidding (perhaps I had connection issues).

I again lost out on a MOC trilogo Yakface.

I also bid on a few of the Han items and got blown away so hopefully you get a nice sum for them!

I thought I had won two Rebel Soldier MOC, but only seem to have won the 41A. I seem to remember discussions on here about bids not regestering before? Has this happened to anyone else?,

It was some auction, a lot of items went for a fair price I thought.

Sadly I missed this as I started a new job today and couldn’t disappear for a couple of hours. Hope you got what you needed Steve and hope everything works out for you :!:

It might show up in a bit on your account. As only now my account is showing I bid on something, which I assume I won.
we will probably get the invoices later tonight or tomorrow.

There were some items I thought went for fair prices (unusual for a Vectis auction), but glad a lot of your stuff went for good money, Steve. I managed to nab to the two items I had on my list; a couple of Rebel Commando MOCs to add to my focus.

Rather frustrating Vectis are still seemingly having issues with their website. About 30 lots from the end of the auction I got booted off. I logged back in but could only visit the "watch live" page, not the "bid live" page on any browser. I'd be pissed off if that'd happened before the lots I was after came up.
