By the way, are you never afraid there is no playmobil in an unopened box. I know I would :yup:

That is a good question to ask and the answer is simple, no. Reason being is I look at sellers ratings before I purchase as well the box condition. You can tell if a box has been resealed or new shrink wrap placed on it based on the box condition.

Some sets where the stickers have been cut or no sealing stickers at all I do carefully open to view contents but as such I have had no issues.

Can't you just shake the box? :omg:

Well yes, the boxes all have weight to them, doesnt mean that is what is inside the box.

Hence box condition and the newer sets I bought direct from toy stores or playmobil so if the contents of those boxes do not match what the box says should be in them then that is on Playmobil but still its an MISB set the way Playmobil made it, errors and all.
