Wow, that is a beautiful french meccano chief chirpa moc, I love it 8)

So what is your goal with your chief chirpa focus, what are you still looking for ?


Thank you Pomse. I've got a Tsukuda UP 65bk in the post in great condition apart from a yellowed bubble and next I'd like to get hold of a Top Toys MOC. I missed one back in December as I only started collecting end of January this time round though it had a cracked bubble but would have been a nice addition all the same.

Also looking for a regular Kenner with the green GM circular logo instead of blue which I have on my MIM MOC.


That sounds great, I hope you will add some pictures in the thread when you get that Tsukuda UP 65bk 8) Yes the Top Toys moc would be awesome to have, I hope you get one. I would just be happy if I get the figure complete with weapon :D

The regular Kenner with the green GM circular logo that must be easy to find :wink: do you also have a chief chirpa made in mexico ? I have the 65 back moc made in mexico and then I have a 77 back cardback that is also made in mexico.

Could you tell me about the slide?

Here is a bit of a read up about what they could have been used for, most likely sent out to promote the film

Thanks for the link.
Interesting, a nice item to have, I assume that they are very desirable.

If you can find the time for it, then I would be happy if you would upload pictures of them all 8)
