Are you still up for more?  :)

This one was Mitri's favourite. It was made by four Belgian collectors, and it is pretty cool to see a genuine Belgian theme displayed here. It's a brewery from around 1925, complete with a very lifelike Belgian bar, or a 'brown café', as we call it. There's also a sort of fancy fair with freaks, circus artists, a fortune-teller, a sack race and plenty of amazing customized figures and carts.

So much thought and work has been put into this, it's unbelievable. Excellent result!  8-)











Gorgeous custom houses too, by the way:

Now that shopping mall was just begging for a huge custom version. I was very happy to see this realised. Beautiful lake too.









Also, there was the Kindergarten set that is supposed to be released in September 2014. I tried to make a close-up picture to get a good idea of what will be available soon. Looks nice  ;D

By this time I had already picked a favourite, but really this one is just off the charts  :)  There are custom buildings made of Victorian, western and medieval steck parts, in such a wonderful variety of design and colour. And then there's the boats  :love:  It was a very big diorama, so I had to use the zoom a lot, which did  no favours for the quality of the pictures. Still, I hope you can see the brilliance!

The last one...

I didn't get a photo of the collector's name or country of origin. Maybe someone else can help me out with that?
It's an awesome medieval castle and Viking village. Kids were shouting with excitement over this one  :)













That was it, another splendid LuxPlaymoDays has come and gone. It was a very inspiring edition this year.

One other thing: I met Elise (or Elisa?) who did the beautiful Victorian dioramas in the Playmobil exhibition in Speyer. I was very happy to tell her in person how much I admire her work. She also sold me some wonderful sets. These pictures of her dioramas were taken at Speyer:
