There is a market for adult collectibles, but it is interesting that they are going back that far. Skipping millennials and going straight for the boomer/gen-x crowd.

That's who's spending the money trying to recapture their childhood (cough cough).  :-[  Millennials have another decade or so before they really begin to pine for what's gone.  :skull:

Is it possible that Geobra, in it Licensing test phase. is using very old movies due to the cost of the license itself ?
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

No idea... THE license is definitely SW, right? Amazingly, the ghostbusters one seemed to do ok.. much to my surprise...

And.. did you see the PRICE of those larger ghostbusters "klickys"? BY THE GODS! 50 EUR!
(they're some sort of limited edition? Not sure... but thank the gods it's ghostbusters!)

Not sure if you pay less for an older license, plus, there was recently a new Ghost Busters movie, so I guess that doesn't count as an old one (anymore). They also seem to have the license for the new Heidi cartoons and not the old ones. Don't forget Dragons and Spirit are recent animation projects.


(they're some sort of limited edition? Not sure... but thank the gods it's ghostbusters!)

Only 12500 per figure will be made according to the new catalogue p32 (http://playmobil.a.bigcontent.io/v1/static/KATALOG_DE_2019_1). But 50 euros is a lot indeed... On the other hand, real Ghost Buster fans will buy those things! (Un)fortunately, I'm not one of them. I only bought the hot dog stand for my circus diorama and because I lost the original version (3848) during my childhood...

Oh, I thought the first Ghostbusters round (“who you gonna call”) was based on the original movie from 1984. Then Geobra did a second round (“the real ghostbusters”) of them based on ???

Same goes for How to train your Dragon 1 🐉 from 2010

I haven’t been around since all this licensing started after Horst kicked the bucket

Ghostbusters mean nothing to me... it was sort of lame even back then, now... interest = 0

Though we did get the car (it IS different from everything else) and a couple more smallish sets - AND the best part - those pups :love: .. a few times. By far the best of all the ghostbusters theme - AND a small set :o  AND with a beautiful woman..

Also, the klickys are.. BROWN, so...  :love:

But 50 is far too much for those - I didn't expect it to be sooo expensive. Wasn't on my list  anyway - though if it was a nicer klicky, I'd like one or two..

The first sets from HTTYD are based on the second movie... I think.

I definitely think that is part of it. Even with the more recent licenses (HTTYD and Spirit), they aren't going for the really big players.
