Dear friends and fellow collectors,

I am very pleased to announce availability of 'French Touch 2016: The Definitive Guide to French vintage Star Wars collectibles 1977-1987' (unofficial book).

This edition is the MOST comprehensive and yet-complete book about vintage Star Wars collectibles from France. It comes with a stunning new cover giving a glimpse of the products categories inside, and 30 additional pages (compared to the original 2013 edition) with amazing material.

The book reviews the history and individual product photography of the entire range of French merchandise released from 1977 to 1987 – some heretofore unreferenced or thought to exist only in myth, including as well the French MECCANO and European TRILOGO toys lines. It also re-examines the response the original Star Wars movies received in France, through a wide selection of press and documentary references.

Readers will enjoy the development of the merchandising and marketing associated with this world-famous license throughout 270 color pages and 1500+ stunning photographies.

It's available for order only through Amazon's CREATESPACE (prefered) at https://www.createspace.com/5746949 or main AMAZON website ( http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1517405017 ).

This time no direct order from me, but I will gladly sign your book next time we met Wink

Here's the cover and some preview pages:

Stephane, which book is better in regards to the loose vintage meccano toys.  Meccano to trilogo or this book? Does either one go in depth showing the coo markings of the few meccano exclusive figures?

Hi Trappedtexan Wink

The “FRENCH TOUCH” book doesn't review loose figure variantions.

But it is much more complete and accurate than "Meccano to Trilogo", whether it is about information and pictures as well.

It features the history and individual photography of the entire range of French merchandise released from 1977 to 1986 (food stuff, posters, catalogs etc…).

Moreover, it is important to make it clear that La FRENCH TOUCH action figure chapter includes the whole “Meccano to Trilogo” book with MUCH MORE pages, newly discovered information, better pictures of upgraded items.
