Featuring in the 30th of July TV and Film sale are two very special characters - who are instantly recognisable, possibly due to their size! 

Introducing…..Mike and Sulley, Monstropolis’s top scarers!

These life size models have set up in the corner of Vectis’ Auction rooms in Thornaby and are ready  to give anyone who ventures in a fright, however they definitely live up to their characters and are much friendlier in person; we hope they fulfil their destiny and provide Monstropolis’ energy from much joy and laughter from their new owners. 

The pair are also joined by two life size Jack Skellington’s from “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, they are being offered at Vectis by the same vendor, who has reluctantly placed the lovable characters up for auction due to moving house and no longer having the room to keep them, he tells the tale of how they came to be in his possession….

Sulley was purchased over 10 years ago ....I hired a van and along with my youngest daughter we drove to London, across the Dartford bridge to collect him from a garage overnight after buying him on ebay.....we brought him home to Forest Hall and he ended up in my collection - he has been the centrepiece of my collection for many years, moving with us and creating a stir wherever he has been.....sadly, the bungalow is just not big enough for the both of us......but he raised a smile even from our garage....Mikey came a year or so after Sulley and the pair were reunited!!...they’ve been together ever since.......Jack Skellington came from New York and travelled one Christmas, initially as hand luggage and then in the hold....he was a definite hit from the start, with many people wanting their photographs with him in the airport.... my kids were very excited about this....fellow passengers on the plane cheered when he arrived safely back in Newcastle airport.......again he needs to be displayed and I sadly don’t have the space...
