Well, you've specified the figures and their accessories. Now we must wait for geobra to respond....

So for me it would be wonderful if there would be a new collection of Pieten. There could be a special edition of the figures with 12 different characters.

1. Sinterklaas (obviously)
2. His horse Ozosnel. “O zo snel” translates to oh so fast.
3. Head Piet, with the book of Sinterklaas in which all the names and hobby’s and wishes of the children are written
4. Horse Piet. Female Piet who takes care of the horse
5. Captain Piet/ “Wegwijspiet”
6. Mechanics Piet. (“Piet smeerpoets). Always full of smudges because of fixing the steam boat.
7. Baker Piet. Someone has to make all the cookies/ chocolate letters
8-12. Have to find inspiration. Perhaps a present Piet, or DJ Piet or small children (boy & girl)dressed up as a Piet

Sinterklaas and his horse can be like the previous set 4893.
Here are the drawings of nr 4 Horse Piet and nr 7 Baker Piet
Perhaps it would be nice to include some small parts with the figures. Accessories or toys.

Those drawings look amazing!!! In Belgium we call the horse of Sinterklaas "Slechtweervandaag", translated as "Bad weather today". I love the tiny differences between Belgium and the Netherlands in this lovely tradition!

Another figure could be the "stafhouder" or "staff keeper". This is the person who keeps the staff of the Sint safe until he arrives again from Spain.

Thanks, staff keeper is a good one.
When I was little the horse was called Amerigo. But when the real horse died they told the children Amerigo retired and Ozosnel was found/created.

Finally got around to drawing the male Pieten. Couldn’t get the turquoise right (no turquoise pencil). But I like the result.
I want to give most the short and wavy hairstyle. (I’m also not a fan of “that” hairstyle)

Great!
All you need to do now is make the molds for them and geobra have a new theme ready-made!
