New exclusive set: Playmobil 71247 - 175 year Siemens
« on: September 22, 2022, 18:06:55 »
Siemens AG has commissioned a Playmobil set to celebrate the creation of the firm in 1847 in Berlin: Telegraphen-Bauanstalt von Siemens & Halske. Founding fathers were Werner von Siemens (1816–1892), his cousin Johann Georg Siemens (1805–1879), and Johann Georg Halske (1814–1890) (source: britannica.com), so I assume two of these gentlemen are depicted here.



The item is sold to Siemens employees and is said to be made available in the Playmobil webshop at a later date.

I love these historical sets, shame they are such a pain to get ahold of.
Someday, I will organize my stuff, I promise.

Lovely set - good if it's available on the web shop (honestly expected it to be only available in some tiny German town where they were born)

Great looking set
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:

I wonder if those will be available on other playmoshops, or just Germany...  Time to nag! :-[
