Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers
Part 1 of the Andy Yanchus collection of plastic models, diecast toys, American models and vintage toys from the 1960s through the 1990s, will come up for bid on Saturday, September 17th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, starting promptly at 10 am Eastern time, online and live in the Bruneau & Co. gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, Rhode Island. Andy Yanchus is a highly regarded hobbyist and professional within the comic, model and toy world. His plastic model collection is one of the most comprehensive ever to come to market and features an impressive and diverse selection of Japanese science fiction model kits by Bandai, Imai, Tamiya, Midori, Aoshima and Bullmark. Diecast toys are by Popy, Takara and Nomura. Throughout all the categories in the sale, there is an overlying theme of Gerry Anderson-related models and toys. Andy was an absolute diehard fan of Mr. Anderson and compiled one of the greatest archives of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, UFO and Joe Mac merchandise ever seen. These, like all the items in the collection and in the auction, are in pristine, unused condition. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com and the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay. Previews will be held in the Bruneau & Co. gallery on Thursday, September 15th, and Friday, September 16th, from 9 am to 4 pm Eastern time. Doors will open on auction day at 8 am.
