The mysterious German 6661 Mobile TV Studio Set...
Not all LEGO mysteries involve old LEGO sets. Some newer sets also are shrouded in mystery and intrigue. One set is the 6661 Mobile TV Studio set of 1989. This set had a worldwide distribution, and it would be just another middling Town System set, were it not for one very intriguing fact... there is a very rare German variation on this set!
Some German LEGO collectors have had the rare good fortune to open their regular boxed set (with regular instructions).... and found that the 2 1x4x3 blue truck panels didn't have "TV" printed on the panels... but the letters "WDR". This appears to have happened on some sets in Northwest Germany.... near the city of Cologne.
Well it seems that WDR stands for WEST DEUTSCHE RUNDFUNK... the name of a regional German TV station. How WDR got onto the panels of some of the sealed 6661 sets was a mystery that German collector Jan Katanek first brought to my attention about a year ago.
Here is the box of the 6661 Mobile TV Studio set... and the instructions... (images courtesy of Jan K.)
