Bond fan Daryl Burchmore, of Sussex has been a fan of the films since childhood and has been building his collection since the late 1970s. He has attended every London world Bond premiere from For Your Eyes OnlyFor Your Eyes Only in 1981 to SkyfallSkyfall last year and has become world-famous as a collector, making TV programmes with Q actor, the late Desmond Llewllyn and appearing on TV programmes such as This Morning to talk about his passion.

However, after more than 30 years Daryl has decided it's time to sell because the collection has taken over his house... much to the annoyance of his wife. It includes many rare items and he is hoping it'll bring a lot of joy to other Bond fans. As such, the collection will be sold later this year at Vectis Auctions but before it was packed up and put in storage until the sale in September, The Collectors Club of Great Britain met up with Daryl at the Yesterday's World museum where dozens of his pieces where on display as part of a special Bond exhibition:

An extremely rare Palitoy Jawa Star Wars figure on an unpunched card will also be up for auction at the same event, along with other Film and TV related merchandise.
