Title: Leefert's collection
Post by: leefert on March 31, 2014, 17:51:52
Well part of it anyway.... Here's my assembly of animals (more to be added) that I am working on for a zoo project (still collecting bits and pieces to make it how I want it so stay tuned).  There's going to be some customizing work done as well.

Great collection! Your zoo is going to be large with all those big animals. You found a lot of hippo's! Love those.

I've had the Hippos since I was a child. We still have all of the Playmobil we played with as kids. There are little pieces missing or broken here or there but it's all here.

It must be wonderful to have so many lovely animals.  (Those ostriches look good face-on.)  I'll look forward to seeing your zoo!

Great looking collection. Your zoo will be impressive I'm sure.

Thank you!  As I said, I'm still in the process of procuring additional animals and doing some customizing to some (and that doesn't show the babies either)  I'm actually a bit anxious to build my zoo (but I have many more pieces to acquire before that will become a reality.  Maybe by the end of summer- or it could be my winter project (just have to keep the cats from wrecking it).

I added a few more items for my zoo over the past few weeks

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/leefert/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-05/F0940C12-3185-4DC8-8502-126354526070.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/leefert/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-05/F0940C12-3185-4DC8-8502-126354526070.jpg.html)

I have a plan for the 4460 set, I'm hoping it works out the way I imagine.

I got the Volcano (incomplete) on eBay for an insanely cheap price. I ordered most of the missing pieces from DS (cost me more for the missing pieces than the volcano but the rock slide was missing) then realized I forgot to order a couple of the pieces so they will be here in about 10 days lol

So now onto trying to obtain the remaining infrastructure that I want (which makes me glad TRU is bringing the amusement sets over early). I might be ready to build my zoo this winter

I'm curious which animal is so lucky to get to live on a volcano.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I'm not sure who is going to get to live on the volcano... Obviously when I'm done it won't be an active one. Lol and yes, I thought 6 made for a decent colony of Blue Foots

That is awesome, I'm very much looking forward to seeing your zoo appear on the forum this winter  :)

I actually got a vulcano set at the Playmobil store in Dietenhofen for the same purpose: it looks SO cool as an animal hideout and it's got some very unusual foliage and trees. *pretty!*
Expensive set if you get it new, but I gave the dinosaurs to my nephew, so I had an excuse  ;D

And the tree house is such a lovely set aswell. Great finds!

Good thing I have plenty of space to build it in!  I added the Ferris Wheel from the amusement series today... It just might make it's way into the zoo as well ;)

Today I added the rest of the amusement theme to my collection and got a dino set too.  I should have gotten 2 more motors but I didn't think about it.  40% off so not a bad haul!

I've been playing around on eBay again and picked up some people and a few small accessories this weekend.  Still a long way to go to get everything that I want and need to make my zoo a reality.

I was looking over my "inventory of animals" today and realized that I haven't updated it in a while since I've added a few more. 

Does anyone else keep an inventory of their playmobil pieces?

I started a spreadsheet of mine - link in my profile - but haven't bothered to keep it up. Feels too much like work.

I started a spreadsheet of mine - link in my profile - but haven't bothered to keep it up. Feels too much like work.

I'm doing it just for the animals, and have quickly found how not up-to-date it is. So when I quickly looked at it before deciding to buy something off eBay, I saw that I had the need. When I physically looked at my bin of animals I discovered that I had enough of it.

Now I was looking last night and have decided that I need to start customizing some of the animals that I want in my zoo. And then find some way to make some beautiful zoo signs like the one seller has on eBay for some of the different critters (unfortunately the words are in Spanish). And I really need to get working on the infrastructure for the zoo. I still need a bunch of things!

Nice collection! I'm looking forward to seeing your zoo. How did you get all those blue-footed boobies? I want some so bad, I don't even have one yet. :( I just can't justify buying a $60 set for one bird. Does anyone know if they are available as spare parts in Germany?

Have you tried US Parts dept. Bonnie? I got mine from there when they first came out.
If anyone wants a copy of the animal master list in Excel spreadsheet format let me know. That's how I keep it and then copy paste to the page on Animobil. I don't track any of my other stuff, just what animals exist and if I have them or not. The list doesn't include 2015 releases yet. I will be adding those when they are officially announced to the public.

Thanks Mandy!

Over the last few weeks I've added various sets and parts... Here's some of the newer additions (not all parts of sets are pictured). I've added some more accessories for my zoo project, and have some more on the way!

I bought a second motor for the swings, still need to get one more as the spinning discs from the amusement theme use it as well.  It makes the Ferris Wheel and swings move so much smoother than if you hand crank them.

So I've been at it again recently scouring eBay to get some new parts/ pieces/ people (I actually forgot about one of the items that I ordered.) 

I'm getting closer to having the infrastructure that I want for my now apparently massive zoo diorama!  There's more new stuff coming this week from a massive TRU and Playmobil order, plus I'm getting together a DS order.  Oh boy!  I love tax time!

I also bought a new cart to make storage a little easier.

Yeah considering that for years they have all just been massed in large plastic tubs with absolutely ZERO organization to them.  I find something new every time I open one!  Haha

And I'm definitely NOT an organizer so that makes this all the more fun.  I may actully go and see if I can get another one of those carts today (which then means there will be a physical trip to TRU, not just online!)

I've wanted these sets since I first laid eyes on them, but too many other things got in the way of my ability to purchase them.  Well no more!  They are here!

Now to sit and wait for the UPS man...

My collection has grown again!

I've been sporadically splurging to add bites and pieces to my collection... Not a bad haul, the two Oak trees were only $3 each!  They didn't have any leaves though (the leaves on them are the ones I've stolen off of my little oak trees so I hope DS has some of the leaves available) up the ale at TRU and picked up a couple of sets that might have some usefulness in some of my future Playmo-plans :D I'm still stockpiling sets and items for my diorama ideas.  I was happy to get the Hot Dog Cart (mostly complete) for only a few dollars.  And the Penguin super set was a good deal as well!

:) and something else about your nickname, when you say leefert in Dutch, you say 'lieverd'. Means something as sweetheart; to address your husband/ wife, child... a special beloved one. So the next time a Dutchman says 'leefert'  to you, you know he's trying to be nice.. :lol:

That's really neat info Lynx! Thanks for that

when you say leefert in Dutch, you say 'lieverd'.

Only when pronounced in NL-Dutch though.
But as such it sounds much nicer then f.e. "Lee Fart".  ;D

Okay, you can shoot me now.

I decided to do a little animal inventory today...

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/leefert/Playmobil/birds.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/leefert/media/Playmobil/birds.jpg.html)

The Birds and Feathered Friends... Man I have a lot of Flamingos :D For whatever reason I decided to put the Koi I made in this one as well as some mice... hmmm those extra fish might be transformed soon ;)

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/leefert/Playmobil/Lions%20Tigers%20and%20Bears%20OH%20MY.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/leefert/media/Playmobil/Lions%20Tigers%20and%20Bears%20OH%20MY.jpg.html)

Lions and Tigers and Bears OH MY! And beavers, skunks, Kangaroos, Meercats...

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/leefert/Playmobil/Reptiles.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/leefert/media/Playmobil/Reptiles.jpg.html)

Reptiles and Amphibians... pretty sure that a python and cobra are missing (thank heavens they are just plastic!)

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/leefert/Playmobil/Lg%20Animals.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/leefert/media/Playmobil/Lg%20Animals.jpg.html)

Oh Deer! And Moose, Buffalo, Giraffes, Gazelles, Okapi, Goats... Hmmmmm looks like 8 of my Reindeer might be at the North Pole since they obviously missed the picture

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/leefert/Playmobil/Elephants.jpg) (http://s3.photobucket.com/user/leefert/media/Playmobil/Elephants.jpg.html)

Elephants, and more elephants, and hippos and rhinos too

Looking at the amazing quantity of animals you have ready for your zoo and the range of structures purchased, will you create a drive- through animal park rather than a visitors centre? I much prefer the idea of roaming animals in a natural environment - something like Woburn Safari Park rather than London Zoo, for those of us living in UK.

Some of these sets are actually duplicated from the previous pictures (I couldn't remember what my last picture actually had in it).  I've added some of the new Wildlife sets to my collection.

The oak trees at the top, I bought the actual trunks themselves for like $2 or $3... then ordered the leaves from direct service (another $19) still a lot cheaper than most.  And now I have 3 of the big oaks.


I accidentally ordered 2 of the backpacker with beaver and fallen tree.  I decided that was okay though since I like that tree... I now have 8 or 10 beavers.  It's okay.

4 Elves (one with extra hair)

The elves could go to war with the hunters...
