Are you saying that Asterix could be released in the US in mid year ?

Those are must have sets and I’ve been very reluctant to get them from Greek scalpers on EvilBay
No, just that the next wave is being released in Europe then. I got my Asterix sets off kidinn. Their postage is all over the place but for larger items I found them reasonable but only when ordering a couple of items at a time.

I got mine through eBay; pricey, but I wanted them for Xmas. They are a delight & worth the bother. I'm currently waiting for the 2nd foil bag with Graindemais.

Thanks for the link!

The Naruto cafe looks interesting

I have no interest in horse-related things, but it does look like it has the 'western' sash window in brown, which I guess might be useful.

The cloud-rainbow castle looks remarkably restrained colour-wise!

I like the look of the school, but I always like those modern buildings and rarely get them just because of space

The return of Color (i.e. paint your own Playmobil) according to the new catalogue is worthy of note.

A lame return, imo... I mean.. you paint the car?

Still.. nice white parts (speaking as someone with null artistic abilitys, I will not deface them :P )

I am still VERY upset with the heli. :'(

I quite like the colour sets - I never really 'got' the original ones, but I think the fashion designer one works well (especially if they sell extra skirts and dresses on Playmobil Plus). I'm skeptical about how good they will look in practice when they've been coloured in by kids, but that was always the draw back

Not the best images so I will reserve final judgement until I can see them better. That new horse though, not well sculpted looking at all from these pictures.
The cloud forms are nice and could be used with the Greek Gods.

The guy in the zebra suit is...unique. An interesting reuse of the unicorn head mold from Everdreamerz.

The 2022 Wiltopia and Novelmore sets were beautifully planned and executed. 2023 looks lame and slapdash. The management disruptions are clear.

Hadn't seen Graindemais before, nice.
