Interesting to see the Sycronian commander mold back.

Thank god the design is bouncing back from the disastrous Series 23! I'm looking forward to Series 24, especially the girls:

I wonder about the grey lady: is she supposed to be a statue? Will she match the Gargoyle from Series 21?

Arab falconer is great, as is the "magic" lady in long dress with pink "ice wand".

Special attention for the clown with the terrible face. Lots of great accessories, not in the least her pink hat that looks a lot like the ultra rare blue hat in the old Aristocrats set 3543.

As to the the boys: the return of the Super-4 alien is a source of joy. I wondered why they hadn't done more with all the new molds created for those sets.

Crooner singer and "African" pilot are nice. Bongo man might be a welcome source of more dark tan heads and arms.

Special attention for the athlete – I'm not at all happy that a South African wife-killer is commemorated in a Playmobil figure  :hmm:

There are lots if amputee athletes so it is great to see disability being shown in such a positive light. Only one of the legs is showing a prostheses and Pistorius is a double amputee so your assumption is wrong happily St.John

I've so far only seen 11 boys and 11 girls, and mention of "24 pochettes", so we're still missing the 2 highlights that presumably weren't photographed.

They are probably on the top of those pics, and they have been doing lately... and so not in the cropped pic.

I originally thought she was meant to be Sepia, like a black and white photo but she's holding flowers, so I'm thinking she's meant to be a street-performer statue - like 70377
