Will it be on sale in a gift shop there? Are they a three pack or are those customized singles?

It is in Franconia, Geobra's favourite part of the world, which explains the preferential treatment.

I see that Herrieden houses the new Playmobil logistics centre, which explains all the better why the world (or only the town?) got this new set.

Did you see these?

Not yet, great, thanks for sharing!

Great find and yet another doh moment as I see the belt with the vertical clip on it and how it's being used to hold the drum. What a good idea!

I concur. Brilliant.

I also very much like the hare flag; I suppose the name Herrieden has (originally or secondarily) something to do with /hare/. It is in Franconia, Geobra's favourite part of the world, which explains the preferential treatment.

Thanks for the explanation, TMH. You protect your source!

It's a shame Geobra don't allow the sale of display materials (even if they don't police this in Canada- yet!) and scandalous that the items are just destroyed. But that's commerce!

Did we perhaps frequent the same shop, GrahamB?

Maybe. I have a feeling he/she was based in Sussex or Surrey, but I only bought the one lot from them, and that was on eBayUK.

Very impressive, congratulations!!  :o

store displays are indeed destroyed after their use including the big figures which in my opinion is not only wasteful, but destroys history.

"Geobra Brandstifter & Co."  ::)


Brandstifter = German for "arsonist"

I never noticed before- that dressmaker's dummy has a belly button!

Thanks for the insights, GrahamB.

But I did once buy a Camper van 4859 on eBay UK with a blob of glue from a glue-gun on each tyre as well as on some of the accessories; it had obviously been glued to a display (possibly a shop display), so perhaps some do appear for sale here too.

I remember getting figures and dragons with glue traces from an eBay UK seller a few years ago! I bought from him several items, and there was glue on them each time. I  forgot his name but he was friendly, very customer oriented and fair in prices. Did we perhaps frequent the same shop, GrahamB?
