French Meccano Cardboard Death Star: In the U.S. we tend to look at these cardboard Death Star playsets as out-of-the-ordinary. However, it's the U.S. version of the Death Star (the plastic one) that's unique, the cardboard one having been released in quite a few countries. Here you see the French-issue version of the set, as it was released by French toy licensee, Meccano.
