My Collection
« on: November 26, 2013, 21:35:20 »
On the pcc site there is a topic for being the collector of the month.  This requires one to write a blog one one's collection.  I know nothing about writting blogs.  Most of my collection is still in their boxes/blisters/bags.  So here I have decided to list my curent collection by theme summaries and although my listings also contain costs, I am not adding it here.
My collections:
Theme       Sets        Pieces     Klickys    Critters
Adventure          8              86         12             3
Circus                5            101           7           10
Dragon cLand   17            492         43            6
Dragons            8             166           9            8
Egyptian          79          2,648       221        113
Farm                 8             117          6           36
Future Planet    1               33           1            0
Ghost Pirates  15              382         33           8
Knights          729        15,091    1,304        298
Landscapes      11            143           0           0
Misc.               32          1,647        212      113
Pirates           294       10,673        556       149
Roman           207         3,650        435        63
Safari                2              32            0          7
Space               9             105            9          1
Specials          10               24          10          0
Stone Age         9             175          20        11
Vacation           4               48            7          1
Vikings          102          2,585        261        19
Western          56          2,368        137        93
Zoo                  4                52           0         6

   Totals     1,610        40,618       3,303      945

The spacing is more formal in my spreadsheets, not so much in a word processer format.  So, this is what I have since I started collecting Playmobil in 2005.

Reminds me of Count Count from Sesame Street ("One little piece of Playmobil, two little pieces of Playmobil - wonderful, wonderful, hahaha....")

How neatly organized. Excel doesn't work for me anymore - I have reached the upper limit of number digits allowed in a cell....

That's an interesting overview. What the PCC is looking for is really as much about the why and how as what you have. So for instance - when did you start collecting, were you young or an adult? Why have you continued? You have lots of knights and pirates. What is it about those themes that interest you so much? Which is your favorite theme and why? What do you do with your klickies? Do you have plans for the future?

There are some sets of Knight families also, so they are not all fighters.  Oh, and by the way, 729 is the number of sets I have, 1.304 (with families) is the number of knights I have and I added another 5 today.

Great amount of sets you have collected

I too would like to see how you store it all

If you have 1,300 Medieval sets does that mean each one is different or do you say have 40 of this one and 20 of that one......etc......

If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

I think it includes multiple times the same box. For example below, there are no 207 Roman sets made for sure.
Roman           207         3,650        435        63
if you count on PlaymoDB under knights it is 252 sets and if you add also medieval houses, Vikings, Fairy worlds etc it comes up to 385

WOW!  I think someone just called me a liar!!!  And that is all I will say on the subject, as I do not want to get a flame war going.
