The special event historical figures seem to always sell well, maybe they are finally  getting a clue.

This person was a German novelist (for anyone else who had never heard of him, like me).
Perhaps the figure is being sold by a particular interest group, his home town, or some such.

If Playmobil were to think about issuing more historical cultural figures, even those limited to a German[ic] background, they might do well to go for those who still enjoy international fame, like Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Handel, Haydn, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Strauss (Richard or Johann, I, II or III), Wagner, Weber and those are just some of the more famous Austrian and German composers.... Why has such an illustrious bunch of historical celebrities been ignored?
