A canny collector who bought dozens of Star Wars toys for as little as 49p from a Tescos 'bargain bin' 40 years ago has sold them for almost £50,000.
The anonymous shopper scooped up as many of the discounted plastic toy figures as possible from a trip to the supermarket in the 1980s.
They have remained sealed in their cardboard cases since then and have shot up massively in value.
