What a bargain, considering their great condition!

I agree with Lew. That has to be a very good purchase.

I bid on those but tbh I thought they were around the right money maybe even a little high. Plus no gifts.

IMO there's never been much call for them, much like Crunch.

Great way to get the full set though.

Went to the Barrasin Glasgow. Sheez, that's gone downhill. Loads of empty stalls. Hardly any customers. A far cry from yesteryear. There was one stall with a whole load comics, annuals, graphic novels, Commados etc. But, it was too expensive. Shop prices.

The only reason I didn't go for these was that I don't think my Mrs is ready for another 45kg of comics entering the home, never to leave after last year's Commando, Valiant and Battle purchases (almost 4500 of them).

Great deal for the winner and they look to be in excellent condition.

Not me, I completely missed that somehow. Nice item though and Mick got a good price I think.

I was actually in two minds about going for them, having the last issue missing might turn out to be a bit of a bug bear for the owner.

Either way, awesome run of very rare comics.

I was £100+ away but I already have #1 & 2 so was not all in. I'm going for his Hurricanes though as I am collecting them.
