Dalek replica, Corgi, Dinky and Star Wars collectables at Tamworth toy auction

TOY collectors will be hoping to exterminate rivalling bids at a Tamworth auction next week.

The Richard Winterton Auctioneers sale in Church Street on Wednesday, August 17, starts at 9.30am and features an array of vintage toys and collectables – including a mid-size replica of a Dalek.

The Doctor Who archnemesis joins other pop culture icons such as Star Wars figures and vehicles dating back to the 1970s and a huge selection of vintage Barbie and Sindy dolls.

Toys in the auction include a 1960s Johnny Seven ‘One Man Army’, collectable Corgi and Dinky dicast, Star Wars figures and a remote-controlled Dalek.
