Was it in an old man's pocket at the bus stop?

Slipped down out of the minds of men,

There is a new comic out, Pokemon, issue 1 out now.  Worth a punt on its value rising in a few years?

If you buy three copies you're quids in.  When prices go up, simply set up three limited companies to sell them to each other, then when the prices reach their optimum level, sell them on eBay and retire.

You don't believe me, do you?  Let's just say if Richard Branston hadn't followed my advise way back in 1973 and bought Tubular Balls, his outlook would have been very different today.

Hotwheels and Matchbox have issued their 2017 ranges. I'm only going to get a few, the hotwheels batman set and the VWs, and a selected few others, especially if the serial numbers start with the letters DVD

I had a batman car when I was a kid. Think it was a Matchbox one. As you pushed it along, plastic flames came out the back.

I was disapointed that the flames were not real.  :'(

Like I was also disapointed that the Matchbox Combine Harvester that I saved up for over 3 weeks wouldn't cut the grass!  :'( >:(

This never happened with the See-back-a-scope.

Or Meccano.

If he was on here Mab would back me up.

There are five in that batman series Reenie, number 5 is also issued twice, one with the serial starting DVD that's the sought after one.

The Batman car with the flames out the back also fired plastic rockets and had a blade come out of he front.

Meccano was good but you needed so much of it to make anything

Last Friday, The Charlatans were doing an album launch in Manchester. They had about ten shops giving away posters, postcards and I got a cup from one.  I met the band in a record shop and they kindly signed a few of my records including the new album.  So apart from a new 7" box set and a yellow 7" vinyl, I have all them signed.  I can wait to see them in concert again.

I went to a car boot sale and got a WV beetle toy car for 10p and I asked the bloke if he had any lead soldiers.  He said he has some half flats from the 1920's and put them on fleabay for 10 but they didn't sell, I arranged to meet him back there the next time the car boot sale was on but he wasn't there. I think I will write a letter!

I was walking past a charity shop today and spied a box of toys outside, I looked in and saw some transformers and at the bottom, some toy cars.  I dug down and found a Hotwheels Volkswagen New Beetle Cup 2001.  Picked it up for 25p, retails on fleabay for 3

You might make a living out of this you know.

Porty  has an annex in his off shore account.
You know what I'm like, I'd never be able to work eBay due to lack of interest more than anything

A friend has helped me out and done me a massive favour recently. He collects stamps and I know that he has been after a set for 40 years. The problem is that these four stamps cost 400.  Because he has saved me much more than that, I decided to see if I could find a set and get them as a thank you gift. After a short trawl of tinternet  I managed to get them for 63, whoever is selling them doesn't know their market value.  And I am happy and my friend is over the moon.

Ace.  Except I gave him that set last month, and he gave me 401 for it.

Then he said if he ever gets a duplicate set, he'll hide it under his floorboards, convert to the Moonies, and buy a monkey named Archie and go on an adventure.

Haven't seen him since Friday.
