I need a few advices about valuating a couple of Meccano items, if any Meccano collector wish to help out.

As always help is greatly appreciated.

I got a millenium Falcon and Snowspeeder Meccano which I wish to sell, they both have boxes.
I am unable to valuate them, so I am asking what these would go for in mint opened box condition?
knowing that I would be able to valuate my own two ships.

Meccano Snowspeeder and Millenium Falcon don´t exist...except the Palitoy boxes with a white Meccano Import Sticker.Are you talking about these ones?

These are common Europoean (multi lingual) Boxes. What about the content of your boxes. Assembled, Attached stickers ...or everything still unused?

Is there a way to find out what company made them? there isn't Kenner on them and I would like to give correct information. The language on front is French, there also is English.

I wouldn't put the value of these items high even if they would have been Meccano which I thought since no Kenner sign and the French language with Meccano in text, I missed that Clipper etc where mentioned.

On Falcon the stickers are applied, the box is as you can see rough, its missing some stickers also missing jediball and stick. It got a slight yellowing. Cardboard inserts and all is very good. No broken pieces.
Snow speeder is in good condition, missing harpoon with box. Box as seen pretty beaten up. It's a bit dirty.

The inside cardboard which the slide into are ok.
And no instructions etc for any of them, it's simply a couple of incomplete vehicles with boxes.

Have a closer look the boxes. I can read on my EU Snowspeeder Box "Fabrique en Angleterre"...So I assume it was made by Palitoy in the UK. I don´t have a Millenium Falcon box, but when it states "Fabrique en France" It was made in France from the Meccano Company and when it states "Fabrique en Espagne" it was made in the spanish PBP factory.
Try to use the search function at ebay (ended auctions) to get the value of you boxes.

Both have fabrique en angleterre and Falcon also have made in england at very close up look so I can safely type palitoy then?

There surely is a lot to learn about this.

Thanks for help Smile

I have seen that one before, I like how she just shovels down those figures, no wonder they got paint wear.
I also this time noticed how the at-at legs attach.

Since your planning on selling, just list them as Bi-Logos, as Michael stated. Its kinda hard to tell who made them or put them out without it actually printed on the box. Its like on the on-going debate about the Made in Mexico cardbacks, is it a Ledy figure or a standard Kenner figure thats on the card. Just because it says Made in Mexico, doesnt make it a Ledy unless the figure and accessories match up perfectly.
