We have some very exciting sales coming up in the next few months here at Aston’s Toy Auctions, which I’m sure we will be filling you in on very soon. While we’re busy getting lots ready for our 14th September sale, I’d like to share with you the hammer prices on some of our sci-fi and TV related lots from our last auction on 17th August.
This very exciting rare Mego Black Knight Jousting Horse Cover, which you may remember from a previous blog post, sold for £950 to a very determined bidder.
Hasbro G1 Transformers always sell well and this Optimus Prime, complete with accessories, was no exception with a hammer price of £70.
Robby the Robot is a sci-fi icon, and this Osaka Tin Toy Institute Tin Age Collection was a very nice model, limited to 2000 pieces. The winning bidder, who paid £220 before commission, expressed his amazement at finding such a wonderful piece here in the West Midlands!
One bidder was obviously keen to join the dark side, as this full size Master Replicas Star Wars Stormtrooper helmet fetched £160.
Don’t worry too much, though, as I’m sure Luke Skywalker will be here to help any minute, in his Code 3 Collectibles X-wing Starfighter, which sold for £200.
We had quite a few lots of Konami figures, including this lot of Wacky Races models. The bidding raced ahead on this lot, and ended at £180.
We had loads of lovely lots for Gerry Anderson fans. These two Comet Miniatures models, along with a binder containing autographs, sold for £300.
This Takara Thunderbird 2 received a lot of interest, and sold for £280.
I hope you enjoyed taking a look at some of these prices, the full sale results will be available on our website shortly.
Keep your eyes peeled for some more interesting sci-fi lots in September, including some vintage Star Wars masks!
