Playmo1989, the sqeeky wheel always gets the oil. :)


I will have to disagree on this American saying. In America the squeaky wheel gets replaced, we save and fix very little in our disposable society.

I would love to see Stecks come back and to some limited extent it has with some DS offerings. It was a fun system that I have loads of and would love the market to be re flooded with parts. I especially could use the rare ones like the red corner roof from the train station or the 4 way connectors in brown. It was a system that was not fully thought out so there are a lot of pieces that could be invented to complete the ability for customizations. I would welcome a similar system but we need to keep in mind the market want Playmobil for instant play value. If you want a construction toy we have Legos. Parents who make up the majority of the purchasing power of Playmobil seem to want a toy that has quick set up time, especially at Christmas morning when you have many children demanding your hands for assembly

i think richard at his conversation with Mr. Brandstätter must ask and talk about these why they don't bring steck back to the market with new pieces ,and why they prefer the systemx and the new system??
