Caulfield Racecourse Vintage & Modern Toy Fair

This morning I visited the Caulfield Racecourse where a Vintage and Modern Toy Fair was held.  I'm a regular attendee of these collector fairs as I'm always interested in what James Bond items might be out there.  In the past I've purchased a couple of scale model vehicles from The James Bond Car Collection.

As usual the event was extremely busy.  There was a vast array of vintage and modern collectables displayed for sale on each vendor's trestle table, although I didn't notice too many from the world of Bond.

Of the few I noticed there were several vehicles from the Bond Car Collection but I didn't take any photos.  Also these three carded Corgi Junior vehicles, shown below, which were released around 1977 and 1979 for "The Spy Who Loved Me" (Lotus Esprit and helicopter) and "Moonraker" (space shuttle) respectively.  I rarely see these nowadays still on their cards so they definitely caught my interest, even if I didn't purchase them.

There was also this "Thunderball" board game which I suspect was released around the year of the fim's release in 1965.  The box looked in great condition too for its age.

No purchases from me today, but it's good to see some rarer Bond collectables still out there.
