Nice Moc, Andy. Thanks for sharing :-)

I remember back in the early 90's when I first got back into collecting vintage, Meccano Jawa MOCs seemed to be everywhere. I don't remember seeing many other Meccano MOCs, just the Jawa who could be picked up really cheaply. Stupidly though, I didn't buy one as I wasn't really into collecting MOCs or foreign variants at the time :roll:
I was the same, kept passing at the £30 mark and then watched them creep up. I think my one was actually from Toy Toni's stall, which wasn't ideal :oops:

Here's my assortment of the cloaked midget; a vinyl caped version which came from Jim Stevenson in the early nineties, plus a selection of cloak material, stitching colour, and hood shape & size variants, plus a pin-prick eye variant on the right-hand end. The guns are a mix of nippled and no nippled versions. Sadly, I have no MOC to offer, but I do have a decent cardback to share:

another amazing collection from you :D I love the variants, the vinyl cape jawa looks amazing and also that palitoy cardback, amazing.

I agree wish every TOTW thread was this well subscribed :wink:
Thanks :-)
