That's a fantastic piece of gimcrack.  It's too bad, the seller didn't ship it properly. Sad

If there was only 12 total, ever made.  You might have one of the rarest pieces of gimcrack out there. cheers

James, that’s a hell of a story and I am shocked how well you were able to re-assemble that thing. bowwing

I’ve recently got in two fine examples of unlicensed gimcrack (not sure if the podcast guys are into unlicensed stuff) but one of them I’ve never even seen a photo of before and it is pretty wild. I’ll post them as soon as I’ve had a chance to take some photos which do them justice. popcorn

In the meantime, I am thoroughly enjoying James’ story there. clapping

Here's my latest gimcrack pick:

Some glorious, colourful bootleg stickers with a Canadian import sticker on the back.

The second item there is the notorious Spaced #1 (1974) by Jim Pinkoski. If you're not familiar, there was a great 'Chive Cast episode, way back (during the ESB figures, I think) where they covered it quite well, but I can't seem to find that episode or I'd have linked it here.

I posted this over in "Latest Pickups" but I had to share it here too. rofl
