But just to get a taste of what is going to be available here are some of the models we can expect to see in the shops very soon. We are expecting to receive some advance samples and prototypes here at Laughton Towers this week. As soon as we do we will post some of our own pictures and observations. We hope to be able to bring lots of new product to SkegEx at the beginning of July.
For now here are some of Meccano's official media pictures of the new models and the all new packaging. The first image is of the new Tower Crane. This set is packed with features including three geared motors and a programmable controller. Several changes have been made to this model since we first saw it at the London Toy fair back in January. The new battery boxes have been enlarged and reworked so the batteries can be replaced easier, The controller is evident in the background and the new thrust bearing parts now appear to be finished in black.

We all know about Meccanoid G15 KS and his little mate the G15 but now we get to see the box, at least for the little guy, for the first time.
