New licenced theme: ASTERIX, from 2022

(1/21) > >>

StJohn:
It was announced in Klickywelt that Geobra has acquired the licence to produce sets around the theme of Asterix, "a French comic book series about Gaulish warriors, who have adventures and fight the Roman Republic during the era of Julius Caesar in an ahistorical telling of the time after the Gallic Wars" (source: Wikipedia). Good news for Roman fans! :roman:

Well... hopefully great parts.  :)

I am not overly familiar with it - only saw a couple of movies on tv.. sometime. Not memorable for me, except the "biologically accurate turtle", or something :P (is that from an Asterix movie?  :-[ )

I have no idea where this will end though...


On a side note :

WHERE? Where's the official word, I mean?

Iím not familiar with Asterix but regardless, I canít get excited about yet another franchise. It seems thatís their direction of travel though whether I like it or not.

The bit that narks me the most, is that it makes it even more expensive to buy, and I say that as a pretty well-paid adult collector. Imagine the pressure some folks must feel to pay the extra for the licensed sets for their kids of themselves. Of course, Brexit hasnít helped  :'(

This should be fun!

I used to have the ĎPlay Asterixí action figures when I was young, and I used to LOVE them. Hereís hoping they make a Playmobil Roman Fort - they HAVE TO, right?

Hopefully they make Tintin further down the line.  :love: :love: :love:

It'll be either a cardboard back, or a useless system WHY oddity made of two half walls with NO possibility of expansion.. :(  (wallet is grinning, the idiot  >:( )

But I am sure there will be loads of beautiful parts (don't the gauls have... interesting hairs?) - take THAT, stupid wallet!

I know nothing of Tintin, would it bode well for parts?  :P
