LKWs
« on: January 24, 2016, 11:12:43 »

LKW – Lastkraftwagen (Truck/Lorry). I will photo-review the Playmobil cargo transport vehicles in this thread. I like these trucks and containers because they are 100% compatible with the train theme and they look like the real ones:



There are 4 versions so far, 3 using the old style mold and one new.



I will start with the newest one, Add-on 6437:





















A comparison with the first one, released in 2004:

Thank you for the pics..

Not sure why they made that last one with the colors all messed up... I was wondering if it was the cat pic that was bad, but apparently not...

I do like the others though... I believe I only have the first one..

Thanks for the look at these. I don't have any but the recent one at least really looks like the trucks the company uses in Germany.

Thanks for the review.  I like the way that Playmobil have always updated their range to take account of changes in the real world, whether it's changes in design or simply (as with some of the early fire engines) simply changes in the livery.

Thanks for the review. I didn't realize there were so many of these released over the years.

Following the review, some more photos of first set 4068, released in 2004 as an exclusive set for German store Vedes. I always wondered if the truck and container have those "Happy Birthday" signs related to the Playmobil 30th anniversary (1974-2004)









The nose of the truck is flat and the cab sits on top of the diesel engine as usual in European style. I think Playmobil owns us a long nose truck for easy access to the engine like many in the US.



The container has a nice combination of blue tones. Later versions were different.





The set has only one figure and no many accessories. Later versions came with few more little boxes. In any case much more should have been included.

It is the turn for set 5091, a special edition released in 2015 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of FunPark in Zirndorf. This set is in someway a re-edition of set 4447 with an update in accessories and a special klicky.







The container has the same colors as in set 4447


but the stickers are different of course


This set has more accessories than previous versions




Notice the driver, different colors to the previous versions...


and with a special label for the FunPark 15th anniversary
