Auction Calender

01 October: TIM DYKE - MPH MODEL RACING CAR COLLECTION
Auction of exhibition standard models by Tim Dyke of MPH Models. A former accountant, Tim turned to model production after leaving the accountancy trade and deciding to turn his hobby into a business. Concentrating on Le Mans entrants between 1949 and 1965, all in 1:43 scale, MPH Models produced models of 63 cars in total, 58 Le Mans cars, 3 road cars and 1 each from the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio. Working initially with white metal kits Tim found it hard to produce models of the standard he was happy with and the subsequent growth of resin kits gave his models a much higher level of detail and he soon found that there was considerable demand for his significantly upgraded models and went on to produce them in greater numbers after forming an arrangement with CMA Mouldcast, although they were still very small numbers with the usual run being limited to 25 models of each vehicle. The seller of the collection, who has a background in motorsport, was initially introduced to the MPH Models by a racing driver friend of his and over approximately 25 years of collecting has amassed 60 of the 63 models that were produced making this one of, if not the, most complete collections in the world. This specialist event will be followed by the sale of vintage diecast and tin-plate Toys, Model Railways, Bears and Dolls, Action Toys, Model Soldiers and much more. Live Internet Bidding, Absentee Commission Bidding, Telephone Bidding. This auction will be conducted behind closed doors with no public access. Full packing and shipping service available. Public Viewing on 29th September. [Map]

15 October: STAR WARS GRADED COLLECTION
Forget the fourth of May, Star Wars fans have a new date to get excited about: October 15th sees British Toy Auctions host a specialist sale of Star Wars action figures, vehicles, dioramas and much more. The majority of the lots offered are from a single owner collection that has taken over ten years to accumulate and covers the original 1970's toys to the modern releases and special limited edition items. The enduring popularity of Star Wars shows no signs of diminishing with a recent sale at British Toy Auctions bringing an amazing £360 for a Power of the Force - Last 17 action figure of R2-D2 with Pop-Up Lightsaber, and the forthcoming sale promises to deliver even better results with over 400 lots to bid on. The bulk of the lots on offer are from a single owner collection who is selling his vast number of pieces to help his children get on the property ladder, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. He sourced the items from collector's forums, specialist auctions and regular buying trips to the USA and attending events like the San Diego Comic-con to find exclusive pieces, so plenty of rarities to be found. The range of items is impressive with Simon Kelly, valuer at British Toy Auctions, commenting "The scale of the collection is phenomenal and the seller has obviously taken time to source the best pieces available making this group one of the finest we have seen. All the valuers have been amazed by the collection as you can see by the picture of Ashley Martin holding a Jakks Pacific 31" Clone Shock Trooper." The lots on offer will include hundreds of figures and vehicles with the majority of the items having been graded. Live Internet Bidding, Absentee Commission Bidding, Telephone Bidding. This auction will be conducted behind closed doors with no public access. Full packing and shipping service available. BE AWARE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN BROUGHT FORWARD FROM 22nd OCTOBER OWING TO TV COMMITMENTS.
