Hey guys and gals, if anyone goes to Car boot sales can they let me know if you find any 80s he man figures. Looking to grab some old childhood memories if I can, its a long shot but not sure if you see them around weekend after weekends?.

I've got 2 in a box "somewhere" I have no idea who they are, as it was last year I got them, but when I discover them, I'll shout you.

I had a pair of carrier bags full of them the year before, but those went to the wonders of eBay long ago I'm afraid :(

That be great if you can, not sure if you see them around and how much they go for.

I would buy this if you are looking to move it on. I need a forth GBA for Zelda - Four Swords!

They seem to have gone up in value a bit recently, was surprised to see CeX offering £43 credit on it, they seem to be going for less than that on eBay!

At a big boot You might see a few beat up figures, but finding big lots or good condition stuff is getting pretty rare. 
 

I will be keeping an eye out for them this year though!

Lovely weather here in York. Bought a bunch of CDs and a few kids books. Only retro stuff I spotted was someone selling old Amstrad tapes, not my scene. 

 

Ah I was in York too this morning.  5.30 start to get there for 7.  Felt I got there a little early as the traders wewre still unloading their goods as I walked around.  The family traders only really started unpacking later. SO I went round the pro field first. Was interesting.  Plenty of little bits that would be nice in the house but not much computer stuff. I got Devil May Cry and Timesplitters on PS2 for £1 each which I'm happy with.   Went back to the traders field for one last look and by then some of them had got some games out. One of them was clearly an ebay/shop owner. He had hundreds of DS/Ps3/Ps4/360/Xbox One games. Some resealed up.  Nothing I would call a bargain.  Kinda regretting not picking up some of the PSP games he was selling.  It was mostly junk apart from a game I quite enjoyed (LocoRoco). Thought it would look nice on my shelf but decided to be sensible and not bother.  Kind of thought later for 4 quid I should have just got it but it's not exactly bargain territory. Seemed very ebay price already.

 

Wife was supposed to come with me but she chickened out last minute. Shame, there was lot of old funiture and an old wooden mechanical music box she might have liked.   Will probs go again next week with her.

If that is Luigi 1, hit me up when you're done and want to sell / swap it, I don't own that and would like to, an actual "for me " purchase, not something to sell on :)

Oh, and seeing MH: Stories doing that much... makes me wish I'd actually gone to pick up those 2 I had on reserve at Argos now :(  Bollocks :(

They've returned.

 

Strange lack of dealers this morning, didn't mind as I had a fair shake for once.

 

£40 got me x2 Xbox 360 slims with 250gb hdd's, 2 Wii's and wiimotes for £5, 4 360 games, avermedia hdmi capture dongle, blue dual shock 4, switch psu, Mumra figure from 1985 plus some random bits and bobs. Some decent CeX trade fodder to start building up for a ps5.
