VLIX Droid Figure
19th of January's TV & Film related sale - VLIX Droid Figure.
Featuring in the 19th of January's TV & Film related sale is a Kenner Prototype Vlix figure and accompanying silver coin.  The Vlix figure was never put into production by Kenner; however they did sell some of the tooling and molds to a Brazilian company - Glasslite.
This company did produce a limited run of carded figures and one such example sold at Vectis Auctions in July 2016 for £12,000!
Tuesday 19th July 2016  -- Lot 4104 -- Glasslite (Brazil) Star Wars Droids Vlix 3 3/4" vintage figure, Near Mint (paint rubs to hands), within Fair (indented and splits to top left) bubble, upon Fair to Good (creasing and edge wear, foxing and rubbing) punched card back. Estimate: £6000 - £8000 Sold for: £12,000

The Kenner figure which exists in much fewer numbers as a prototype only, is much rarer than the Glasslite figure. The 'Droids' character is one of only a handful known to exist. Vectis have placed an enticing yet cautious estimate of £3,000 - £4,000 on this Lot.
Separately is a prototype silver 'Villain' coin, which were produced to accompany the Vlix figure, this again has been given an enticing £2,000- £3,000 estimate.
Both of these lots have been graded by Tom Derby as '85, NM+' from the Action Figure Authority and have a certificate of Authenticity.
