That R2 is great on so many levels, seen a solid dome R2 on a Tri Logo before, but not in a long bubble.
Congratulations

Daz,
Stunning Cloud City, absolutely stunning.

Big thanks to Stephane for my latest pick up, one of my grails for sure.

I can remember when I got back into collecting wondering to whether pull the trigger on a £100 MOC, never would have dreamt of ever owning this at that point in my journey, Rich talked me into buying this piece and love it.

Lovely Meccano Greedo Stuart, a great addition to your focus. And well done Rich for taking you into buying it.

Lovely Greedo Moc. Does anyone have an answer as to why Meccano had completely different card dimensions from Kenner, Palitoy etc?

I do recall some theories stated somewhere. The factory was in Calais.
Purely speculative and mikey taking - was it because they just wanted to be different :lol:

Did they just utilise their own card they had for other figures and somehow were allowed (licence clause)? Someone will know I am sure! :D
