Overheard and noted and Sandown preview, 14th September:
“About time, is it really 40 years? Better be worth the wait.” (It is! – Ed.)
“Never seen anything like it, somebody has had a lot of fun playing with their toys, quite literally.”
This must set the standard for the future. Corgi and Dinky fans eat your heart out.”
“If this was £100, I would still instantly buy it.”
“Am I looking at the toy and model publishing event of this century? Probably the last century as well.”
“Wonderful to see everything else given the full treatment. Worth the price alone.”
