East Bristol Auctions was awash with lots and lots (literally) of Lego
East Bristol Auctions was awash with Lego: there were lots and lots (literally!), ranging from Minifigs to complete buildings, boats and even in-shop display cabinet models, most of which sold quite cheaply at £35-45. A boxed Ferris Wheel realised £130 whilst a Green Grocer building set reached £200. Many lots were sold at rather cheaper hammer prices, though.
Are French Dinky Supertoys falling off a cliff? A boxed No38A, the Camion Unic Multibenne Marrel in yellow and grey made £60 while a 36A, the Tracteur Willeme Avec Semi-Remorque realised just £50; and the impressive Tracteur Unic Saharien finally closed on just £45. Not expensive toys, in my book…
As for Corgi, the little No319 Lotus Elan Coupe in red with detachable chassis made £70 while the gold James Bond Aston Martin DB5, with ejector seat figure present but only in good to very good condition, with original box but no secret instructions, stopped at £70. Rather better was the silver
1/8 scale Eaglemoss made precision diecast model of James Bond's DB5, which was fought to £260.
For the tecchie, a1983 Nintendo Mario Bros Game and Watch handheld games console was taken to £40.
Finally, something to get steamed up about: an original vintage Mamod made Steam Tractor (TE1A) and boxed Open Wagon were in good shape and sold for £100.
