Most informative. More detail than one usually gets in such a post.

I'm not sure if I can go down that rabbit hole of Meccano collecting lol I understand the appeal of the carded stuff but there are so few examples at such high prices.

My favourite variation is probably the tie pilot, you can tell the difference at a quick glance bowwing I am now generally more informed lol 1up

thanks guys ,

Chris .. yeah the meccanos were almost an afterthought because there differences are really subtle Sad . definitely an acquired taste lol!

the death star droid did me in as he was my first and lets be honest there aren't too many variants on him .. I love that droid  bowwing

very fun to track down

Great figures Bill Smile
I have a question about the meccano figures/variants.
Called they meccano, because they are relaesed only on French Tri-Logo (Meccano) Cards ??? Made the figures all in Macau?
