The new Tintin construction sets will be released around the launch of the film, which opens in the UK on October 26th.

Meccano will focus on the 320-piece Seaplane, with a 270-piece 4 x 4 and a 630-piece Unicorn Sailing Ship completing the range. All of the models are based on vehicles which feature in the CG-animated movie.

Meccano has 'paid very close attention to the detail of the replica vechicles from the film.'

Directed by Steven Speilberg, The Adventures of Tintin will receive the full blockbuster treatment, with a significant marketing campaign, a 3D edition and a licensed toy range.

The toys are designed for kids aged eight and over, but Meccano expects them to be popular with Tintin enthusiasts of any age.
