I was very surprised to find a vintage toy dealer there with a great mixture of toys & figures and a huge 'Dukes Of Hazzard' display box filled with cars from the show.
After a long chat about various toys & collecting I came away with these 2 MEGO items the first is the Roger Moore MEGO MoonRaker figure, unboxed but in very good condition i do like this figure even though he looks oriental and he appears to have a green face! i know Roger was well known for his drinking but i think something went a bit wrong at MEGO HQ, it isn't a bad likeness though also the head is stamped 1979 but the body is marked 1977 I'm sure some MEGO collectors will know why this is.

As I've mentioned Colwick car boot was huge and it took us a good couple of hours to walk around, there were lots of toy boxes to rummage through mainly full of McDonald's toys if you were collecting Shrek you'd have had a field day as i lost count of the amount of Shrek related items i saw there, in fact most of the recent dream works or Pixar movies were represented with a large variety of Broken or missing limb examples.I guess this must be the case at Boot sales all over the UK.
And talking of McDonald toys i found these 2 great catwoman mobiles, i already have one but i thought a few would look even better and its always good to have a spare for swop's or suchlike.

|The rather Camp Mini Superman|
|Mini me & super me!|
|More Spider booty|
Last but definitely not least was this great Scooby Doo Dracula/Vampire figure for 20p off the nice Asian woman with the big toy box ,in fact all the above Superman & marvel figures were 20p each absolute bargains I've been collecting the Scooby Doo monsters for a while and i now have most of them I'll post some pics soon of the cool glow versions of the zombie character i have these seem to turn up quiet a lot at Car Boots & Markets.
