80's Toys feature heavily in forthcoming auction

Nov 16, 2016

Wessex Auction Rooms final specialist Toy Collectors Auction of the year includes a fantastic collection of 50 original boxed G1 Hasbro Takara Transformers all complete with weapons, instructions and unused sticker sheets. The collection includes many sought-after figures that includes Headmasters, Duocons and fan favourites such as Jazz, Smokescreen, Grapple and Ultra Magnus. The collection came from a vendor that bought them after their release in the 1980’s while talking his children to Toys R Us. While his children went shopping for a present the Transformers caught the gentleman’s eye and he ended up buying a large quantity of them for himself. He kept them on display for a short while but they have since spent the last 25 years in storage. They go under the hammer on 25th November and the collection expects to transform into a great investment for the vendor and will sure to make many collectors Christmas!

The popularity of Retro 80's TV related toys continues to grow at auction, and Wessex Auction Rooms have been travelling the length and breadth of the UK over the past two months consigning collections for our forthcoming auction.
