Aliens Riverside studio auction 1987 update

David Oliver from “Propmasters” gives us an update

The whole lot was initially offered to my father by Tiny Nicholls, they knew each other and went way back, Tiny used to work for B&N. Dad had no real interest and I was just so very young with very little funds. Dad put Tiny in touch with Duncan @Bonhams who we both knew and the rest is history. I was there at the auction, Tim was as well I believe but we did not know each other then. I recollect it quite well. Complete full dress rails were sold off. Aliens Marines around £150 each, a huge crate of alien movie costume pieces, etc. Such very early days.
