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)

I would also like to see lemons and limes. The old pirate ships had crates of fruit, but these obvious scurvy preventatives remain missing. They could also, of course, be used in farmers' markets & cetera.

    Yes, they reissued the Victorian laundress, which I can't imagine a lot of people were asking for (though I was thrilled). Why can't they reissue some of the sets which are sure to be more popular, and presumably just as easy to produce, like the Flower Seller (5400)?

I must admit I, too, was a bit surprised at that one, especially since the Victorian line has been a bit neglected in the re-issues stakes.

I would have thought the most useful single-Victorian item they could offer would be the single-window wall from the extension floor and the straight connector (or just, you know, re-issue the extension floor  :lol:)[/list]

I agree on lemons and limes. They did slices of them in the Everdreamerz series 1 Kimby and Karmela figures that are great to have. Would love to at least see those pieces back in a general release set or two.

    Oh dear!  :-[ Thanks for cleaning up after me.

    Yes! The single window wall piece was so difficult for me to track down, I just ended up buying another extension floor. As asking for a reissue of the entire Victorian mansion seems unfeasible, it would be wonderful if Playmobil would consider reissuing the single story 5305, perhaps reissuing the extension floor at the same time.

    I imagine a reissue of the Victorian fencing alone would be most welcome to many, myself included.

    I would also like to see lemons and limes. The old pirate ships had crates of fruit, but these obvious scurvy preventatives remain missing. They could also, of course, be used in farmers' markets & cetera.

    Lemons and limes are great suggestions! And oranges! Citrus fruits were known to the ancient Romans, so it could also work into those sets as well. Lemons, limes, and oranges are very distinctive to children, so it is surprising that they have been neglected while watermelon, pineapple, and bananas have been in multiple sets.
    We get up at twelve and start to work at one, take an hour for lunch, and then at two we're done.

    How could I have forgotten fauns/satyrs! Those would be good for Greek mythology and have cross-over value for other kinds of fantasy, like unofficial Narnia.

    Big yes on Cerberus and Minotaur. While at it might as well ask for a Faun or Satyr  and a Centaur. Centaurs have been super popular in customs for years now.

    The Victorian camera will be back this Christmas in the next Back to the Future advent calendar. Many of us are happy about that.

    They do seem to read these threads sometimes. We have a long time thread on animals people want to see and a great many of them have turned up over the years. The recent red panda looks exactly like one someone posted a drawing of a few years back in that thread. The swan was one of my suggestions a long time ago and it happened. The ice cream shop using the harbor set pieces that came out this year is almost an exact copy of a custom one I did in a diorama posted here a few years ago.

    Lemon and lime slices are now pieces but actual whole fruit not just yet.
    This might be a substitute for limes at least:
