Cape buffalo! Thanks for the clarification. The cape buffalo piece is one of my all time favorite PM things. It strikes exactly the right balance between detail and abstraction. Plastic perfection!

PS the single DS buffalo is set #7977.

Yes, very well said! This is exactly what I love about most playmobil animals, and playmobil in general, really.

To be fair that cape buffalo can be hard to recognize when he's not wearing his cape.

Btw, I just can't help myself... that is a cape buffalo, similar to a water buffalo but different. :-[ It's definitely awesome, though. :love:

Agh, they have water buffalos here at the zoo but no cape buffalos.  :(

Well no caped or uncapped buffalo's wander around in this area so I took this picture of a Jeep/willies/ford. A friend asked me to fix 3 he has. A 42, 46 and this 45. Last night we dug it out of the berry bushes off of a 2000 acre dairy farm. The broken down playmo one is on the hood. I should have taken pictures of the patties that were everywhere, I have playmo chocolate ice cream around somewhere  :P

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:

This was a reject from a contest here last year but it fits well in this thread!
