Thanks for posting the "how to" pics, Martin.
They sure point out how wonderful and versatile the Steck system is :yup:

Best regards,

Thanks Martin.  I think it'd only when you either build a Steck castle yourself or see a step-by-step photo construction like this that you really appreciate what Steck is about.

Anyone know how to attach the 3888 to the 3666 castle?  I used to have the instructions but have lost them.  Thanks!  And thanks so much Martin for taking the time to put these together for all of us! :)

There's instructions here (http://store.playmobilusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-US-Site/en_US/Search-Show?cgid=Bauanleitungen) at Playmobil.com to connect 3888 to 3666. Just search for 3888  :).

A great reference for Steck . And a great reminder how grand -and superior to the current system- this is. Great , robust plastic quality , superb engineering, long lasting and realistic with endless custom possibilities. So much better than L and so many other construction toy lines.


I truly hope they bring it back . After the klicky figure that the second best think Playmobil has ever created in my opinion !!!!!!!!
