Hello everyone! I was hoping I could find some help on this board with an old set I'm trying to put together. I'm not sure what these bricks are even called, since they are not branded, but they have the traditional tyco-style 1.5 size brick. Here are a few links to a helicopter I have tried to reconstruct. If anyone can identify what pieces or set this might come from or has any photos or instructions, I'd really appreciate some insight. Thanks all!

Please take care to post in the correct sections of the forum. There are some gray areas, to be sure, but requests and info should probably be posted in the Requests and Info section.

I don't know the name of the set, but the set looks like pre-Cobi Best-Lock. The antennae and cockpit look similar to those in other old Best-Lock sets.

Thanks for redirecting my post. I'll keep it straight in the future.

Thanks for spotting the blocks as pre-Cobi Best-Lock. I'm guessing they had the similar 1.5x block size as Tyco did as well? I wish I could find some pics of similar sets. Anyone know of a website that might have some?

Here are some pictures of pre-Cobi Best Lock sets:

Very nice links and pictures. That stuff is HARD to come by, even with a google search! One of the links suggested that Mega Bloks may have had some 1/2 height bricks as well. Can you confirm this?

The closest match I could find to my heli was on the last link you sent here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v686/Twitami/Best%20Lock%20and%20Other%20Clones/?action=view¤t=Scan28.jpg

I guess those instruction manuals are probably long gone by now?

I think I found it by golly! I found this pic/link:

So, who is Coco Toys? A Best-Lock distributor or imitator?

Coco produced direct knock-offs of Best-Lock sets. The helicopter seems like a match, though!
