Meccano Jawa: Though the Meccano Jawa has turned up in the States by the case-load, the rest of these French-issue figures are seen only infrequently (the Ben Kenobi figure seems to be the most common after the Jawa). As you can see, the card differs significantly from those issued in most countries, being small and rather squarish.

The backs of the Meccano cards are interesting too, as they represent one of the very few instances in which the Blue Snaggletooth figure appeared in official product photography. However, although both the vinyl cape version of the Jawa and the Blue Snaggletooth appear on this cardback, neither of these figures are known to have been released in this Meccano packaging.
