Very good Palitoy Trilogos have been hitting £100 (for some unknown reason) recently, yours is obviously more desirable than that but has obvious issues- when was it bought for 45€ ? Was it in the same condition when purchased for that?

Not trying to say it's only worth 45 by the way, just trying to gauge the market when it was purchased to the market now

I've just sold a Trilogo Luke Poncho on Meccano Trilogo for £140. It had similar bubble damage but to one end only and was in better condition card wise and without touch ups.

That said, Stephane and Yann's Collector's Handbook gives Luke Poncho 3/5 in terms of rarity and the AT-ST Driver as 4/5 in terms of rarity on Meccano cards. Which, in theory, makes it as hard to find as a trilogo Jawa :shock: I have some issues with the rarity guide, but then I guess rarity does not automatically translate into desirability.

Given the damage and the touch ups I just can't see if being worth more than about £60 to the right person. I should point out that is my feeling on it's value rather than what I know it to be worth. In the world of Meccano cards, if someone turned round and said it was worth £200 I wouldn't be surprised, just think Meccano collectors were even madder than I already did :D

I don't know who you could approach to ask for an impartial value. Maybe Stephane Faucourt and Yann Leroux themselves. They're good guys.

To be honest you would be better off asking in the Meccano group on Facebook, I don't think there are too many Meccano experts on here

The punch and the smaller bubble, maybe other identifying marks but those are the big two

Although just to confuse matters the bubble being smaller doesn't necessarily prove it's a Meccano according to Joe, some are Palitoy with leftover bubbles from the 65 back era I think
