Whoa that really is cool printing!  :(o):  They'd be wise to show the capes in the marketting materials   :2c:

 :paddy:
If they were truly wise these would be available on the playmobil website for say six months and even more money would go to the children's hospice.

You guys forget that that is NOT playmobil's policy. Then people would BUY them. Including foreigners. You know how much playmobil dislikes money in general, and HATES foreign money (euros included).

One day, I would love to know the purpose of the company.

German kinder are special beings and can't share their toys with dirty foreigners. ;D

Yes... their precious national customers are quite pampered (to a point)... the rest of us trash.. well...

Right now, I need someone who can READ at the customer service.

These look great! :D

Maybe Playmobil will eventually realise the attraction a new medieval theme would have for people.

That would certainly be nice. Some of the recent Medieval building sets seem to have sold quite well, so perhaps there is a reasonable chance of at least more of those sets being released.

Yeah the retro sets, the Greek myth sets, and the museum sets starting with Luther all should be strong signs to an alert Gnome of Zirndorf that such a direction would be lucrative. Is any such Gnome extant?

Are the Gnomes extant or extinct?
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

More pressingly, what is their extent?

I'd presume the exclusivity comes from the museum rather than from Playmobil. It's possible they'll turn up on the website at some point, as other museum figures have.
