News from specialist toy sale
If you love trains, then East Bristol Auctions next specialist toy sale will be for you! "We've had three huge collections of 00 gauge models consigned," says toy specialist Andrew Stowe . '"All of them consigned locally, and all of them accompanied large layouts." One filled the attic of a local farmhouse, as Andrew explains: "It was one of those great layouts, sadly not seen too often, where you have to crawl through tunnels on your hands and knees to the centre of the room. It was fantastic!" Around 400 locomotives and hundreds of carriages and countless rolling stock feature.
Also consigned to the sale is a large collection of 1990s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures, but with a difference. "It's a collection of all the wacky late-edition action figures from the original run." says Andrew. While some of the first 10-back figures are included, most are the crossover or 'extra feature' Turtles such as 'Wacky Action' or 'Turtles Star Trek,' figures. Interest in Teenage Mutant Ninja (or Hero, as they were called in the UK) Turtles has always been high here in England. With around 60 action figures in the collection, aficionados of the famous green mutants are sure to find something they want. Cowabunga!
