Today's mega boot sale in Fitzwilliam was extra ginormous and positively Californian. It was so damn hot, at 28 degrees, almost too hot to bother with the boot sale! Getting in and out was a nightmare too!
I picked up a couple of old Star Wars mini - vehicles but walked past loads of stuff as usual as I find it difficult opening my wallet these days saving for retirement!
Walk pasts included these loose nuggets:
1. Cherilea Action Man green armoured car [huge!]
2. Strike Force Action Man green Truck with tarp, beige Jeep with Trailer and beige Armoured Car
3. Hundreds of Dinky and Matchbox cars
4. Two dozen loose MPC astronauts
5. Various types of plastic Thunderbird 4 inc. the modern movie version
6. Merit Metal Puzzles set
7. Robo Force Motorbike
8. Joe 90 VHS Video
9. Blakes 7 VHS Video
10. A stack of SHOOT comics from 1971
Would you have gone for any of these readers?
The most interesting walk past was a Blue Box Laser Wars set, a toy wholly new to me. It looked quite interesting and space-age'ish: like Manta Force/ M.A.S.K. The box was a bit battered. The vendor said it was 1974 [?] and priced at £35.
Below is a picture off Ebay of the same set in a much better box. Anyone know Laser Wars?
