Wanted: Selected Mystery Figures Series 1-4
« on: June 23, 2013, 19:03:29 »
Having recently come back into the Playmobil family, I was surprised and delighted to discover the existence of the Mystery Figures!  I managed to find a few stores that still had some older stock, but still have a few gaps in my collection. (And I discovered I also suck at the 'feeling' method, even though I refuse to rush and don't mind the stares of clerks!  :lol:)  I managed to pay big $$$ on ebay for one I really wanted, then ended up getting two more of it when I found a store with old stock!)

I am in Canada, but close to the US border, and have a PO Box there, so for mailing purposes, I am dual citizenship!  ;)  Am happy to get them from Europe too, but with the more expensive shipping ideally I'd hope to be getting several!

I don't need them in the bags/packaging, loose is fine. Let me know if you have any extra to sell!  :) Thanks!

No sooner did I post this list then my daughter asked if we could cross the border and go to a mall about an hour away in the US.  We stopped along the way at a store that carries Playmobil, where I had previously picked up the older series.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in! They had put out a ton more series 1-3, and marked it all down to $1.99! Stuff I really wanted, and on sale! I must be dreaming! :D

We spent about 45 minutes going through the packages, and I managed to get 90% of my list! So excited!

Also got 4231 (Circus clowns) because it had a bunch of music intstruments I wanted, as well as 4309 (piano player).

It's always a bit of a feast when things like that happen  :confetti:

Thank you, but I did manage to finish getting what I needed from a store that unearthed old stock and put it out marked down to $1.99! (Funnily, I made a trip to this store just yesterday and managed to complete the rest of the ones I needed, that I hadn't managed on my previous trip to this store!)

No problem, Salamander. $1.99 is a very good price (Series 4 retailed for £1.99 in UK- that's $3.04 US- I haven;t looked for Series 5 yet).
