Your sci- fi mem­o­ra­bilia val­ued by the ex­perts from auc­tion­eers Vec­tis

SFX - - First Contact - If you’ve got a piece of mem­o­ra­bilia you’d like us to fea­ture, send us a photo of your item with a few words about what it means to you, to sfx@ fu­turenet. com, us­ing the sub­ject line Cash In The AT- AT.

Jonathan Hodg­son sent us a photo of his pro­mo­tional standees from Ralph Bak­shi’s 1978 Lord Of The Rings. “I was start­ing work at a school in 1995 when I saw a load of posters and things re­lat­ing to var­i­ous books from some old cup­boards be­ing taken out to the skip. These were the most fas­ci­nat­ing items!”

ADAM CARTER OF VEC­TIS SAYS: “You would be amazed at the num­ber of sto­ries I have heard about schools dis­pos­ing of items of worth, rang­ing from film mem­o­ra­bilia to literature.

“The standees are very rare, but that does not trans­form to high value, un­for­tu­nately. How­ever, you do have the two main char­ac­ters, Frodo Bag­gins and Gan­dalf, so I would es­ti­mate these at £ 20- 30 as a pair. In­ter­est­ingly, Bak­shi auc­tioned off many an­i­ma­tion cels from the film around the time Peter Jack­son re­leased his tril­ogy, so if you have any of these keep hold of them for the 40th an­niver­sary in 2018.”
