I'm just trying to find a rope long enough and strong enough to hang myself with. Didn't win any of the stuff i wanted!!!! lol!

That Desert Rat was the star of the show. I should have kept going longer on the German Stormtrooper but lost my nerve.

If anyone on here has won stuff please put some pics up!

cheers, J

I bid on everything and won nothing, that £1500 Sealion proto was star of the show for me, I can hear Eddie on the phone to his mortgage company as we speak ;)

I just hope that the proto's stay in the country and better still the community not just put in a private collection never to be seen again :(

I also didn't win anything.
Here's the full list of prices realised if anyone wants a gander:

Some of the Star Wars stuff went well over the estimates but I think the prices for the AF stuff will have taken Vectis by surprise.

The prototype Action Man bikes also went for big bucks and not many bids. I think the racing bike only had one bid for £2400.

Select auctions, then previous auctions. In the search box type in Action Force, Palitoy or a combination and it will then show the prices realised for all today's actions with action force in the description. Will have the latest auctions first, so the trade catalogs, the toys etc. you can do this for any auction once the price has been realised.

Won a boxed ATC, well chuffed with that, although not sure if overpaid slightly.

Unfortunately you always over pay with Vectis, just wait for the final bill to arrive and make sure your sitting down :)

Tell me about it.

I did lead the bidding on the Sealion Prototype for a while but finished well adrift of the final price. Even other lots I thought I left good bids on I finished well off of.

Yeah I bid on a few and despite what I thought were generous bids ended up way off. They had three of the four vehicles I still needed and a few variants but maybe I will finish the cave of man first and then look for the precious few again.

Looks like a win here was gonna cost me big time

Well done. They were a bit too pricey in my opinion, especially when you add on fees and delivery but at the end of the day it's worth what you're willing to pay for it and it's only going to increase in value if you take care of it. Either way I'm jealous cos I don't have one! :)
