Not my own auction but sure to be of interest to many collectors here - there is currently an excellent Derann 'scope Star Wars feature on Ebay UK starting at £399:

Nothing to do with me either, but it was on 4x 600' spools, but now mounted on 2x 1200' spools.

Good luck if you are bidding!

The Q & A's after Ian's advert are hilarious!

Who'd want to be a dealer? 😂😂

Hello Melvin

No bidding from me as I already have Star Wars myself it just seemed logical to mention it here as others have done so in the past when it has been priced much higher - I thought considering the around £900 it has sold for a number of times previously on Ebay that the starting price of this print seemed fair.

It is,but Ian knows what he is doing by placing this one on ebay instead of here, just like every other dealer has done in the recent past. [Wink]

When Ian's ebay sales previously reached very high amounts, all were started at very reasonable prices.
Can't say fairer than that!

... let the bidding start! Yarrr! an let the Ian profit me hearties!

Yarr, Jim Boy, Yarrr!

Sorry, I'm just in a goofy mood! I always love watching these get bid up and you're right, VERY smart to put it up on ebay as, you'll only get film lovers on the forum's, but STAR WARS is the kind of title that people who don't even collect films will buy, just to say that they own an actual print of a beloved film!

I think its a bit of a joke myself, its a second hand product of around 30 years +. Its at a good,(very good), start price, if you want it bid, if you want a brand spanking new print without a mark on it dont bid. Simples! [Wink]
BTW, I Dont mean its a joke being on ebay,i mean the thick and fast questions, people want a 30 year old print to be brand new, it aint happening. [Big Grin] [Wink]
Its like the dickheads we get in our place in the car dealership and there buying a 4/5 year old car and pick at the most ridiculous things, i say, try the showrooms where you will find brand new cars. [Wink]

You are spot on there Tom - Ian's clear but basic film condition descriptions never attempt to instil the false high expectations that some sellers on here do and I wish him every success and hope he gets a good price for it.

None of that 'Stunning' / 'Mint' / 'LPP' (not!) hyperbole from Ian - thankfully just good old fashioned top notch customer service both before AND after the sale.

I don't think there is anything wrong in describing a 30yr print as "like new" or even "near mint", so long as it is!

I have a fair few that I'd happily use these descriptions to describe them.
In fact a few, really are like when they first arrived on your doorstep, cellophane and all.

Not bad for a 30yr old useable item prone to wear, and all credit to their previous owners when they do show like this.

My much more modest film from Ian this week is absolutely great, and just as he said. Lovely order and low fade colour.

Chuffed to bits. Always nice to deal with too.

Also a great litle bit of buzz in the hobby just now too.

Best Mark.

PS safe to say I will never be owning a copy of Star Wars though.

Probably nor me given the prices these fetch!

I like Star Wars but no more than many many other films.

Star Wars fans might be better to wait for the NEW prints that
will be released in 3 months time via Reel Image. [Smile]

Could easily go to 1500 by the end. This man's prints are MINT from my own observations.

Only ever run on "safe" machines by all accounts! [Wink]

"I like Star Wars, but no more than many many other films".

It will never be me at these prices, not even if I won the euro jackpot. [Big Grin] [Wink]

Well done to Ian.

However at these prices it should have been a complete feature
print of ... ' ITS A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD ' that sold.

It's the pre-striped stock that people want David. You won't get this ever again I suspect. [Wink]

You can develop a sensational Stereo track on these for sure!
Something that's highly unlikely using today's modern grey paste etc etc.

Didn't even noticed it had finished until reading your post above David. That's how much interest I personally have in Star Wars for a bag of sand!

Andrew I couldn't care less if any film is on pre-striped
stock or mono or stereo.

I don't like any film that much to pay that price for on
Super 8mm.

Now I might pay that for a print of say for example
' Lawrence Of Arabia ' on 35mm or 70mm or even 16mm but 8mm
No way . [Wink] [Wink] [Wink]

Have to agree with you on this David. This is why my Brother keeps deciding yes or no to sell his copy. At the end of the day its a movie. As often said before there are limits and reality checks in life. Great for any seller though and easy to see why a few long term collectors are letting go some very sought after titles. [Wink]

Have to say, in its own right it is a reasonably entertaining film, my Brother is the bigger fan, its great to see it on the big screen,One of the attractions of the super 8 feature is the fact that it is the original untouched 1977 version. Many many fans want this. Once George Lucas modified it with improved SFX later on in years he vowed never to allow the original 1977 version to be re released ever. Disney are also unable to get the untouched original re released so our super 8 version is very often the one the star wars fanatics want [Wink]
At the end of the day the improved version was George Lucas's actual image of what he wanted, the SFX just weren't quite there in the original release.

I don't care how much a 8mm film sells for but blow the picture up to about 8ft and it will like watching a film with sand in your eyes

I take it you haven't seen the print of Titanic on Super 8. I have on a 12ft screen. Really really nice.. no sand either. [Smile]
