Still waiting for the Benelux update too, and they seriously need to put some new stuff in the discount corner.

This is all there is, and it's been there forever. Used to be more stuff, even some classic lion soldiers and captains (which I did buy some of back then) but I can't remember them ever adding anything new to it since I got back to playmobil and looked online at the store.

I just emailed Playmobil with the question when they will update the DS, I will put it here when I got an answer. And you're so right about our "koopjeshoek"... So disappointing!

Thanks! Looking forward to hearing their answer.

I'd really love to see some more old stock in the discount corner. The six classic lion soldiers and one captain where very usefull.
Surely they must have had more left over stock in the past years, especially with themes changing out so quickly these days.

Me too!
My expectation was they would put the new DS-sets online after the past weekend, but still nothing today...  :(
I considered phoning them but decided to wait a few more days.

surely the US, the UK, Ireland, and Canada are sufficiently large to justify a proofreader to go through the names of new sets before they are released

Obviously not.  ;)

PM. us definitely has stocking issues. I got a notice that some set was back in stock yesterday, and today it's out again.  :-\

That Russian skating advent calendar reappeared then disappeared again...I lost that game of cat and mouse.  :'(

Oh right, they don't like money!  :sparkle:

Yes, the advent calendar! What did they do - find one more in the back?

Coudn´t resist any longer so I just phoned the customer service of Playmobil Northern Europe. Reply: "the DS-update for Benelux-countries will occur during the course of the month. It can be soon, but it can also be near the end of the month"  ::)
Past years it was ALWAYS the first days of the year, sometimes sooner.

Clearly, they are trying to balance out the advantage in knowledge you have had in the past.

Thanks Hadoque :) ! I'm still curious what they will reply to my email :p ! Well, in a way  I was lucky, I ordered two buffaloes and the Alpine cows. Normally arriving today!
