New images of early Dacta sets published

Posted by ,
Technic Control II

Following on from our publication of exclusive new Fabuland, Scala and Minitalia images last month, I have now uploaded images of early Dacta sets from 1972-1988. Being educational sets sold only to schools, these sets are extremely rare and this is the first time that pictures of the actual sets themselves, rather than catalogue scans, have been published. They are not even included in the LEGO Collector book.

I still can't say where these images were taken, but you will find out: probably in March! I'd like to thank bluemoose for post-processing them and producing some really clean, clear images.

I'd heard of Dacta but never knew what it really was. I'm now a little wiser. Roll on March!

Great!
As I'm more interested in old, rather than new, sets, I appreciate your work!

@Frasse, thanks -- we have only just started: there are hundreds more yet to be added!

I'm with bic3 - I keep seeing Dacta sets coming up on eBay but didn't know previously what they were. Thanks for enlightening me !

The ones I've seen on sale seem pretty rudimentary and can be had quite cheaply.

There are loads of sets from < 1970 that aren't in the database. However we will, as part of our release of new images of old sets programme, be adding a lot more in the coming months. We will probably concentrate on the 'modern' LEGO era, from the mid 1960's onwards so won't be including all the wooden boxes and small parts packs: there are too many and too many variations.
