After yesterdays successful Star Wars Auction, Vectis Auctions today held another action containing a large amount of toys gained from Beeches Toy Shop.

Some of these auctions were for some very obscure Star Wars memorabilia, primarily, the promotional shelf strips, that go on the front of shelves holding Star Wars toys.

These shelf strips are usually given to the retailer free to help promote the manufacturers products. And usually thrown away at some point.

Fortunately these were found in the back of the Beeches Toy Shop, which was closed in 2009, along with many of treasures, that are being auctioned by Vectis.

With a high demand for Star Wars memorabilia Vectis estimated these shelf strips to be worth £80 - £100, however they sold for a whopping £620.

Here at Duncans Toy Chest, we not only have an interest in current toys and trends, but also in retro toys. Vectis recently had an auction which included some great action figures and toys from The Real Ghostbusters.

The Real Ghostbusters is an animated television series created in 1986 as a spin-off to the 1984 movie Ghostbusters.

Although Kenner made created a toy line in 1986, the recent auction from Vectis featured the popular Ecto-1, which was released in the spring of 1987.

The Ecto1 on Ebay can fetch between £50 and £200 depending on condition. The Vectis action item was due to fetch between £30 - £40 but realised £70.

I wonder who brought it ;)
