Title: My ideas for new Playmobil sets
Post by: Santiago on June 10, 2012, 15:36:02
Hi all, I'm new on the forum and I don't know exactly how it works, but I think this is the place to suggest things we would like to see released by Geobra.

As an aviation lover, I will like to see one day an old aviation world, for example, as part of the victorian world, like an old biplane (not like the original one, but, for example, with radial engine and other improvements) with details like the victorian series has.
Also an old passenger aircraft, like a Douglas DC-3, a Junkers Ju52 or something like this, with two or three propellers.
An old airport building.
A victorian truck with fuel tank for airport service.
A victorian ambulance.

Also for the victorian series I will like to see a coupe and other types of cars (with rigid roof for example) and, for example, a covered cargo truck, an old firemen truck and victorian shops.

Other ideas I will like to see are a small passenger ship and bigger modern coast guard ships (of the size of the pirate ships or the old fishing vessels).

Another suggestion is a executive or general purpose helicopter based on the set 4222, with removable seats to load cargo.

I will also like to see some regional series, like Chinese, Latin American or from India.

Regards
Santiago

As a Victorian theme lover and collector I agree on every victorian set you just suggested!  ;)
Can't wait to have a proper plane for my Amelia.  :love: :love: :love: :love:

Those all sound like great ideas to me as well. Those sets would give a lot more variety to the victorian theme. And I like the idea of those regional themes as well.

I always wanted that the Victorian theme has more vehicles and constructions. I think that also old tractors for a victorian farm could be added.

Cool ideas  8-) though officialy there was never a victorian theme, the theme was the dollhouse, and the extra street sets were available for a few years only.  :)

I like the aviation ideas, although I would go for modern stuff to reach a bigger public
Geobra would score mayor (I thinka) on a (civilian) type of the Chinook twin-engine, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter. Maybe big enough to store a smal vehicle. With removable seats.
Underneath it could carry a container or pallet with stuff. Maybe something for the firedepartment theme.

It would be big and expensive, so would it sell?

Yes it would be big and prob.expensive.
On the other hand, I saw the people spendings in the Playmobil Funpark store lately . . . . . . . .  I was pretty shocked . . .
i am more concerned about the box size. It will consume a lot f space in the shops.

Especially if they make it so it can fit the set THREE times..  >:(

I don't think it would necessarily be that much different from the old white helicopter 3789 with the cargo net and the water drop http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=3789 (http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=3789)
The recent big airboat from the dinosaur theme 9433 can carry a small vehicle so I would bet a helicopter that could carry the same size wouldn't necessarily take that much more plastic to make than the old style did. It's an interesting idea.

But he was talking about a big, tandem-rotor, Chinook (CH-47) style helicopter...

Well you know how Playmobil is about sizing things down. LEGO has done similar.

That's a thought but the age of very big play sets like the GI Joe USS FRAGG aircraft carrier is long gone.......  :(

The ' biggest ' playmobil set / box i have even bought/ own  is the old Western Train. Still have one MIB and love it . Shame they dont make sets like this anymore .....  :'( :'(
