This is a funny one. The Lesney Edition was my first and then I realized that I just paid 8 New Zealand dollars only for extra tampos and a cardboard box when the regular version is just the same except for a few less prints and 2.40 dollars. So something clicked for me in terms of value for money and I started to get all these.

Come to think of it, the Lesney is exactly like the others except fancier tampos and a cardboard box. What a scam, although it is a nice one.

Here is an old thread about that, young fella. :thumbsup:
Interesting thread there Kiwi, I never saw that one before. Now I appreciate my modern Routemasters even more, knowing their unique development history.

So they faced technical issues with the intended metal box of the Lesney ambulance and used plastic anyway, but the Mattel pricing machine was still working like a charm. :tongue:
