Cast your mind back a few months ago and you may remember we met Daryl Burchmore, the so-called "UK's biggest James Bond fan", who was preparing to sell his amazing collection of 007 memorabilia - actually, you don't have to remember, you can just watch our previous interview online. Well, the collection has now been sold at Vectis Auctions and we've caught up with Daryl again to see how he felt about the pieces going under the hammer. However, before watching the video, below you can read about some of the top lots sold during the sale.

Items to realise the highest values were the replica prop items, such as an SD Studio replica prop Golden Gun from The Man With The Golden Gun, which was estimated at £600 to £700 but sold for £1,560. Meanwhile a Swarovski fine detailed replica prop of a Faberge Egg taken from Octopussy opened at £300; finished in 22 carat gold and encrusted with 96 Swarovski crystals and No.6 of only 100 produced, the superb example saw telephone and internet bidders fight it out to reach £1,200.
And, of course, the diecast models were well received with a Corgi No.269 James Bond Lotus Esprit from The Spy Who Loved Me that was accompanied with extremely rare outer carded sleeve finished in red, black and white, with "The New James Bond Corgi" to header. Estimated at £360 to £440 the extremely hard to find model sold for £1,320 to a room bidder. A Corgi No.GS22 James Bond Gift Set also doubled its £300 to £360 estimate, selling for £624.
One further item that just has to be mentioned is a Noveltime Products Ltd James Bond Bubble Bath in the shape of Roger Moore which had an already top of the range estimate of £120 to £140. However, this didn't deter the bidders and it eventually sold for £360. Let's hope it still smells nice! Anyway, now you've got the run down of lots, watch the video below, featuring a clearly emotional Daryl... this is what happens when you have to sell collections!
