I'm slightly baffled, since both Asterix and Obelix have body shapes that don't fit the Playmoverse, but we shall see.

I guess they'll have to make a Menhir -  but yes, lots of opportunities to reuse moulds.

They could use the child body for asterix, and an ogre-type body for obelix.

This should do well in Europe. It's been a popular theme for customs for years. I wonder if they will release it world wide, or only in Europe? My guess is it's likely to be handled like Heidi. We will see.

Add me to the list of "I'm not keen on licensed themes, but . . . " people.  :lol:

This one does make sense. Playmobil is very popular in France. I doubt we'll get this theme in the US, since we didn't even get Heidi.

I can imagine the child body, but I don’t think I would like the ogre body for Obelix. Perhaps a pregnant woman torso without the breasts. But they would need to make a new mould for that.

Idefix would also be very cute  :love:

It would be nice to have the log wall 30027590 in production again from the old western forts.

Green roman soldiers! Neat!
I really hope the characters will have proper mustaches and not just painted faces. Ouh, I wonder if they'll try to do their characteristic big noses O_O

I wasn't sure who you meant. He's Dogmatix (presumably) in English 'translation'.

I didn’t know he had a different name in English   ???

Yes, they all do have different names in English apart from Asterix and Obelix. Dogmatix is a good pun, just like the original Idefix. Same goes for Getafix (Panoramix).

If they’re gonna do Asterix Roman soldiers however, I hope they make some of them using the fat bodies - that would be SO Asterix.

It is nice to see that here and everywhere literally everybody in the adult fan community seems thrilled by this new theme! It has really lots of potential, and seems to be a logical sequence to what was done before (Romans, Dwarfs, How to Train Your Dragon). Dare we hope that Geobra has finally found the right way forward?
