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.

In May, the force will be with us here at Aston’s Auctioneers! Our May 18th toy auction includes a huge Star Wars and sci-fi collection.

 

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (well, 1977 in the USA…) the first Star Wars film was released to become the highest grossing film of the time. The Kenner toy line was released shortly afterwards and was a huge hit with fans, many of whom are still collecting Star Wars toys today.

What to consider when insuring your collection

by Moneysupermarket

From Dinky toys to old school video games, there's a collector for everything, with many spending large amounts of money on rare and one-of-a-kind items.

Whatever you have a collection of, be it model planes, toy cars or retro video games, such collections increase in value as they increase in size, and some will have extremely rare items within them.

So what can you do to ensure that your prized collectibles are sufficiently covered in the event of damage due to fire, floods and accidental damage? Here are a few helpful hints about securing your collection against your home insurance policy:
