Hi Jeff, I picked this up in France but the erased bar does not look like the one you had. Can you confirm this as the meccano luke ?

The figure is very beautiful and I found it in a lot, there was also a saber with the figure.

Do you know if there is a meccano saber ?

Hi Lars,

Nice Luke Farmboy Figure there you picked up!
In relation to the leg markings it is different to any i had. In this first photo i have my Meccano Glasslite and your figure. Some noticeable difference between the three.

Next i have the second Glasslite figure i picked up. Date down. Again some differences.

Here's a shot of the Meccano figure i had...
IMG_20160113_195356.jpg


I reckon it's a Meccano figure, given the provenance in France etc. But it is a marking i haven't seen !


With regards to a specific Meccano saber, I'm not 100% sure on this, sorry.

Hope that this helps somewhat.

Thanks Jeff, do you want more pictures of the figure or maybe the saber there was with the figure ?

Yes it is a strange coo I have also not seen it before :? Maybe there is more coo variants of those meccano out there :lol:

Yeah, some more pictures of the figure and saber would be great. The saber I had looks like one of the early bird sabers. A lighter yellow colour?

Do you think about the sabers with letters on ? here is a picture of the saber there was on the figure, I can't confirm if this is the correct saber for the figure. But found the figure in a lot and I did not get it from a collector so I think the chance is good that it is the correct saber.

I need some better sun light for pictures of the figure so I can first take some pictures of the figure in the weekend.

What do you think about the saber ? need more pictures of the saber ?

That saber looks 100% to me....i genuinely don't know if there was a Meccano specific saber?

I'm sure it's possible that it came with variants

Could be cool to do some research to see if there is a meccano saber. Yes maybe it came with variants, thanks jeff :D
