    We moved into our current flat last year from my house in which we lived in for over 15 years and in that time acquired a lot of crap in which I stored in the loft!

    Only just started to clear some of the rubbish I took down from the loft and found some old Akira anime film cels which I use to sell in my old anime shop (circa 1989!!)

    I'm well surprised that they are not just some cels of buildings or secondary characters but of the main characters and a couple of Kaneda's bike, be it only the back end and also very small! I remember selling in my shop a full cel of the bike for £1000!

    Any of you guys point me in the direction for getting them valued?

    Not sure to sell or keep! Also found some Dragon Ball posters but they are not in the same league!!

    Some pics attached but here is the link to photo bucket album - Akira

    Probably not worth a lot, i'll give you a tenner for them



    :rotfl:



    Only joking i'm sure they will fetch a good price for any Akira fans (like me but im skint) sorry i cant suggest any places to get them valued just wanted to say how awesome they look. The only place I could think was in the yellow pages, that may throw up some answers.

    Be sure to let us know how you get on when you do find somewhere :smashin:

    Just looked on ebay and the prices seem to vary alot the ones i've seen sold privately have only reached between £11.49 and £20 (though they weren't as good as yours) there are others on there between £600 and £1000 buy it now though they haven't sold.
    They look awesome btw i'm a big akira fan and would love to own something like that, if I were you i'd keep them. Where did you originally get them from btw?

    Thanks, Think I'm going to keep them, too much trouble looking for buyers!

    I've seen the seller selling them for £600+, I even messaged him and he replied, he has over 250 cels!!

    Anyway as I mentioned, I had a Anime shop back in the day and 'Manga' the uk video company was new and I knew a few people there, managed to get a a stack of cels, sold alot of good ones, wished I kept the ones of Kaneda's bike, they where amazing.

    Holy schmit dude! That's awesome, the only thing I find hidden in my loft are wasps nests and spiders!

    You could call up a comic book shop as a starting point, perhaps the best place to sell them would be an amine-themed comic book fair (or of course ebay)

    Good luck with them!

    Thanks Mate, I think I'm going to keep them now.

    Wished I still had Kaneda's Bike cel, that one was amazing, filled the whole cel!!
    Almost like this one -

    But I did sell it for £1000, then again I would rather of have the cel now than 1k as I know its worth more:D
