Star Wars sell for £1650
Feb 25, 2017
Our February 24th Specialist Toy Auction of over 850 Lots was another outstanding success with a combined number of bidders in the room and online throughout the day of just over 900! The scene was set when Lot number one, a Boxed Hornby O gauge E420 Eton Southern 900 Locomotive sold for £650, followed by successive strong results for the model rail section. The tension in the room reached a climax when two telephone bidders fought it out to take home two Star Wars action figures. Both items were from the private collection of a former Palitoy employee who had kept them unopened and in near mint condition. Auctioneer and Toy Specialist Tim Weeks eventually brought the hammer down at £800 (plus buyers premium) for the Carded Palitoy Star Wars original 12 back See-Threepio (C-3PO), and £850 for the Carded Palitoy Star Wars original 12 back Darth Vader!
