News

All Star Wars fans are aware that May 4th is Star Wars Day but not all will be aware that on that day, the Star Wars collection of the late David (DARTH VADER ) Prowse will go under the auctioneers hammer in his home town of Bristol.

It will attract frenzied bidding from around the world, inevitably leaving thousands of fans frustrated at being outbid in the auction fever. If you are one of these unfortunate souls, fear not, we can help. We have our own collection, signed by David, exclusively for World of Superheroes.

A few years ago we put on a convention, hosted by Sheffield University and guess who our special guest was. You’ve guessed it Mr Grumpy himself David Prowse. I spent a lot of time with him over that weekend and it is fair to say David was a hard man to love much like the character he immortalised in the Star Wars films, although much less evil. Negotiations to get him were like pulling teeth but eventually contracts were exchanged and there he was, in sunny Sheffield. Even a few years ago he struggled with his mobility so there were logistical hoops we had to jump through to make him comfortable.

I had known David for many years before this, meeting him at Comic conventions all over the world and even as a younger man his mobility wasn’t helped by carrying a breeze block sized chip on each shoulder about his perceived treatment by one George Lucas, but that’s a story for another day.

When he was ensconced behind his signing desk at Woscon, he was professional, even courteous to some fans, and as part of our agreement, signed us many items of Darth Vader memorabilia which can be found, along with our collection of Star Wars Memorabilia on our wondrous on line store.

Rest in Peace David. Knowing you was an experience.

Some extremely special and rare items are now available in our store, original Pokémon boxes from the 90's.

Youtuber Jack from 'Nerd Out' recently unboxed one of our rare Pokémon boxes originally released in the 90's that had never been opened, so we had no idea what was inside. The Team Rocket box included some very high value cards including a very rare Shiny Dark Charizard worth at least £5,000 for just that one card out of the full 371 cards per box. We have decided to sell the rest of the very special and rare boxes for any Pokémon fans out there.

We sell a lot of comics and memorabilia from the 90's but these are very special to many of our team with most young enough to buy these cards back in the 90's as young teens. As well as the appealing nostalgia that comes with these cards, they are also a potential gold mine and becoming increasingly rare with each unboxing. 

The Four Boxes Listed below are still currently available.

Pokémon: Fossil - Booster Box Sealed - Wizards of the Coast
£10,000  

Pokémon: Base Set - Booster Box Sealed - Wizards of the Coast
£21,000

Pokémon: Jungle Pack - Booster Box Sealed - Wizards of the Coast
£6,000
