Those (all?) of you who live on Cakebook will most probably already have seen the following pics.
So these are for the few of us (or just me?) who live elsewhere.

Looks like the newest Planeta / DeAgostini Playmobil figures will completely be about "modern-day jobs"...

Resistance is futile, you will be boarded!

Hmmm, methinks the designers aren't very familiar with certain jobs. Unless of course carpenters do actually wear gumboots in Spain.

How are these any different to the existing city life stuff?

It doesn't affect me, because these are weren't available in the UK (I think) but it does seem very 'will this do?'. They're mostly themes that are/have been very well represented.

Yes, they will be the same price (aka expensive as Hades), and I am not sure about new parts.. maybe a hat color or a torso variant?

Still, then there's the hassle and incompetence factor. There have been 3 failed weeks - as in no delivery - with the current series. Not new, afaik... Why can't we have a decent company handling this?

You mean like a company that offers the figures on their own without the magazine and makes it easy to order the figures or even allows the magazines to be purchased directly instead of as installments?

Those figures are as boring as most of the Mystery Fi?ures.
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've put them in the db, 2019pr - Professions Collection as much as I know about for now - I found one pre-existing figure already, but I think they're mostly recombinations like History. (Also online, 2016ah - Adventures in History, only missing a few blister pack numbers.) I'm not going to clip out all the tiny pics from the PDF - as the good pictures come online, I'll add them into the right places, along with the blisterpacks when I get some part number info.

Big jobs ahead: describing all the klickies, and adding all their accessories. I'll pick away at it. Help appreciated!

I think a lot of them have been good, maybe many are generic too, but overall I've liked the concept. The biggest failing is that they're so restricted. Maybe with these Movie ones they'll start to produce more varied series alongside their current random one.

Is that really a carpenter? I wouldn't hire a carpenter who mainly wields an axe.
