Hello from London
« on: September 03, 2016, 11:48:32 »
Hello!

I'm not exactly sure what I'm supposed to be put in here. Many years ago, when it was a thing, I was on Playmoboard, so maybe you saw me there.

I've literally always had Playmobil, and inherited it from my siblings. It was always my favourite toy.

Officially I only collect Victorian, Medieval and Western. And the odd pirate set. And those jungle sets that looked like Indiana Jones. Oh, and some Roman and Egyptian stuff. And obviously all the Viking stuff (I mean, that's basically Medieval anyway). But sadly most of it is sitting in boxes in my parent's attic.

Don't let that make you think I don't like the modern stuff. I think lots of the modern stuff is amazing, but you really have to draw the line somewhere, and that was the easiest place. It does mean there's the odd random set that's slipped through the net though  :-[

I'm planning on embarking on some customisation, though I've never done it before.

I think that's it.

Hello. Oliver.  I thought the name was familiar.   :wave:

Welcome to our little corner of the world Oliver!

I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

Cheers, Oliver!

Welcome to the forum! I used to live in London, on Tresillian Road in SE4 1YG. I always hope to make it back for another long stay or visit.

I was there when Thatcher was PM - I imagine things are a bit different now!  :lol:

Hello Oliver,  :wave:  Welcome from Southern Scotland.
I was also a member of playmoboard.

Just along the coast, about 16 miles from Dumfries!
With the help of two other collectors from PlaymoFriends (Playmofire and Walt's-trains) I put on a Playmobil Festival with large Playmobil dioramas at the village hall in Kirkbean every July.
