Hello from North Carolina, US
« on: May 26, 2018, 11:56:06 »
Hi,
Just a quick introduction.  :wave:You can call me Tutemi (it's a username I've had since the late 90's when I first had to create a username!). I live in NC with husband, 3 kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 7 chickens. :) My dad was military, so I spent several years in Germany as a child. That was where my family first discovered Playmobil, and we still have some pieces from the mid-80's, although I have recently cleared a bunch out.

I've been recently considering clearing out most of my kids' Playmobil because they don't play with it anymore (my 10yo prefers Lego -  ???) . Then my older kids sucked me into a Dungeon's & Dragon's podcast. As I was sorting through some of the figures I decided to start making characters from the podcast. That led me to eBay for specific accessories and people, which led me to realizing the extent of customization that folks do to their Playmobil, which led me here. :D

I am hoping to get information and inspiration as I continue to make these characters. See you around!

Welcome aboard from Little Belgium, the "center of Europe" ;D

In case your dad would have been Air Force, I´d be interested in seeing old pics of jets like F-4s, F-15s, F-111s, etc if possible.
Kannst Du noch etwas Deutsch sprechen, oder hast Du es mittlerweile verlernt?

Welcome Tutemi, from the UK.

...we still have some pieces from the mid-80's, although I have recently cleared a bunch out.

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)
