Sorry, it's taken me a long time to respond here. I've read everyone's comments, and I appreciate all of the help I've gotten from you all.

My son and I have been having a lot of fun with the two small sets I bought him for his birthday. We have a chart hanging on the refrigerator to help him earn his pirate ship. I printed a photo of the set with 40 table cells for him to put a sticker every time he earns a dollar. He's been doing several chores every day, and he's almost reached his goal. I bought a soldier ship for myself too that I can't open until he earns his ship, or else he'd just play with my ship instead of earning his! :lol:

That pirate seems to be a victim of the non-existing design department. I mean, SERIOUSLY do they TRY these things? Just change the hair, is what I think...

That's not a bad idea. I didn't like his coat either, especially because the sleeves pop off every time you move his arms. So I just took the coat off and I think he looks better like that. Maybe I'll eventually buy a lot from eBay that has some extra hair pieces I could use. I'm not really a fan of that pirate, though. It's way too fancy. I bought the set for the soldier, the boat, and the cannon.

As to favorites, like Rasputin said, we all have our own... For me, the best pirate ship is 3940, but I have none of the newer molds... I believe the last one I bought was the one with the red plastic furled sails... and I think that is the "normal" old type.

That one looks amazing. Too bad I can't find it anywhere online, except for a ridiculous amount on Amazon. I'll have to keep an eye out for it. As big as it is though, I bet they didn't sell a lot of them, especially in the US.

The nearest thing to Bricklink for PM is Mundobil, where you can buy some discontinued parts. But it's not a patch on the Lego sites, simply because Lego's popularity is much, much greater than PM's. It's based in Belgium, so shipping to you will be costly.

That site is awesome. Too bad there aren't many items available there. But it has a great catalog. I'm sure I'll be using that a lot. I was just able to use it to verify that the gun from 4548 is still in production.

PM set turnover speed seems to have increased in recent years. There also seems to be more expermentation with different sets for different countries. All in all a move towards less stability and consistency.  :-\

It's fortunate for us all that Playmobil ever produced sets for a large number of years. Lego has never produced sets for more than a year or two, except the very expensive sets (like $300+).

I spent all of my personal money from our budget this month on Playmobil, and I sneaked it into a couple other categories as well. :lol: I'm just surprised by how cheap the old pirate sets are, and I've been buying things here and there. It's awesome that I can buy a 20 year old, medium sized pirate set brand new in the package for less than the original retail price. With Lego, it would probably cost 10x the original retail price.
