Re: Avengers merchandise!

I got my ultra-rare Purdey mirror today, bought from Ian Beazley's huge but ever-liquidating collection. :hyper: I got it for a surprisingly good price, too. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I can't to put it up. :grin:

Re: Avengers merchandise!

I didn't even know there was an Avengers mirror. Can you look into it and see Purdey staring back? If I bought one would I look like Gambit if I stared into it? :tongue:

It was very rare, and this one is the only example I've ever come across. It's a square framed mirror, and they've sort of printed Purdey's face over it (they've used a pretty well-known shot from Dead Men are Dangerous), so it's half artwork, half-mirror, and you can see yourself sort of overlapped on Purdey. :lol: No sign of Gambit waggling his eyebrows at me in there, but I'm hopeful. :lmao:

Yeah, I've only been ever able to find the one. I don't have time to take a picture just now, but there is one up on the ebay page:

It looks even better in person--pictures can`t really pick up the detail. It`s nice because it makes a good piece of decoration above and beyond being an Avengers item. :yes: It`s in pretty good shape, too--only one small chip around the edge. Not bad for something from the seventies.

Re: Avengers merchandise!

The price of the TNA boxset has gone down again on amazon.co.uk. It's now only £14.29. Unfortunately I found out about this right after I had placed my order, but I know what I'll be getting next time I order stuff off Amazon :hyper:

I found an avengers annual. I'm going to buy it :D

That is a good price. Hope you get to pick it up soon. :yes:

Keep in mind that "old" Avengers merchandise are rare and therefore collector's items, so cheap doesn't usually come into it. $13 is pretty cheap for that one, actually--you got a good deal. :yes:
