Why not? There are plenty about! And it's better than calling them ******* or ********, or even ***** !

You make a solid case.

AT LONG LAST. After what felt like an eternity, I'm finally coming back to this idea! AND I finally finished my interior of the castle. It's just a first design, I might refine it, but here it is for now!

Sure is a nice palace. It would be a shame if someone....ransacked it>:D

I have no idea who this would appeal to, but it was fun to conceptualize. I used the actual Versailles' room interiors for inspiration. (Fun fact: Klickies can swing on the chandelier. :))

I'll do the furniture later, but for now.... I must rest...  :zz:

Also, the white panels in the brown room on the second story are placeholders for paintings (to be stolen of course), and the room dividers are actually arches. I imagine if this building were to be pitched, it could possibly appeal to boys and girls like this: have the "boy" side stress things like thievery and breaking and entering; and the "girl" side general princess-y stuff like ballroom dancing, dress up, tea parties (something I'd actually like to see!), etc. I'd take it even further by emphasizing the modular aspect, by selling add-ons and rooms with different purposes to appeal to both sides. Like maybe a ballroom is sold with one room add-on, and a war room or whatever is sold in another room add-on. Towers, a dungeon, a pavillion, an armed gate, a scullery, there are many different routes to take. And the best part is, it's up to the child of what goes in or out the castle!

Any suggestions/improvements to be made on this castle/palace are fully welcomed!

Over a year later and I finally figured out how to post pics outside of a link.  8}

Palace:



Fort:



Believe it or not, I'm still into this idea. In fact, I was working on a bakery and new molds it might have.

Thanks!  :captain: But I sense it'd be like pitching ideas to a brick wall.  :lol:

If anyone has any other suggestions for this line up, feel free to share!

Those are great designs, beautifully presented!  I especially like the bouffant hairstyles, very achievable in PM.

Geobra do steal ideas from here, as Tiermann and Playmofire have recently attested, so watch for your ideas appearing in future Figures Series at the very least! I would certainly buy 'em!  :wave:
