My expanded Romani orchestra

They should do a whole Romani theme - might have to rename it though to avoid confusion with the Roman theme  :klickygrin:

Good looking ones :)
Great looking figures! Would love to see the band's in action.

Thanks a lot!

I like the update you did with the new legs on the klickies from the Romani Circus orchestra.
And the 'Western'-lady/girl on the right (in light-yellow + white) in the last pic.
It's charming that you managed to "give a fresh coat of paint" to retro klickies! Your circus is not going to be understaffed for sure, judging by the klickies you are showing.

Thanks to both of you, some of the vintage klickies really have nice torsos, but I don't like the old style of legs. So whenever I see the opportunity to update those old legs, I take it!

It seems you kinda predicted the future: Circus Playmo! Although I like more the Romani circus... Nevertheless, some nice additions to my circus collection!

Color me jealous! Have fun!
I understand your enthusiasm – big fan of the man's soundtracks. Have fun!

I had 3 wonderful evenings in Berlin, the concerts where amazing! Finally I got the chance to see the Maestro, who had a lot of positive energy! I have never witnessed such flawless playing before, overall it sounded astonishing! The Superman March is now available for streaming and on YouTube. Here's a picture of the second evening:



Apart from the sightseeing I also went to the Playmobil Funstore, but nothing special there...

Recently I went to the vendor exposition in Sliedrecht (the Netherlands), which was much more interesting! But, I was more overwhelmed by the huge Playmobil store in the station of Breda: Happy Station! My goodness, I regret I didn't hear of it before! It's a heaven for klickies and parts, I will definitely visit that shop again:



The catch of the hunt:



And some new customs for my Western collection:



That's it for today, next stop: collect the revived Victorian sets!

To me, nothing beats the safety net on Romani. The tent is nice, but completely off if you want to play or see what's inside, so, Romani wins the circus battle for me, by FAR.

Wow, that shop is HUGE!!! :o

You could take off the tent of course, they should have made an optional tent for the Romani circus too, I think it would have been great! Nevertheless, Romani will always have a special place in my mind (too), since it was my first theme collection.

Yip! And fair prices! Only 1h30 from Amsterdam by train, definitely worth the trip!

We never had the circus itself, as cubs.. And I DO love the tent, but I think it will get in the way, both to play and to view... and that safety net.. well.. :love:

I wish!

Santa was early this year... I still can't believe this is happening, glad I was able to get the sets brand new!

I'm sure it's been said but Playmobil is currently selling a full sized steck building. Imagine if they re-released 3450 or 3666 but with updated figures. One can dream. ;D
