Like Annoia, the goddess of kitchen drawers which won't open because of a misplaced utensil within? (As invented by the late Sir Terry Pratchett).

:lmao:

Let's not forget... Pico, the god of roman boots... the guy made a prayer to him in the morning so they wouldn't come off.. (that was the high point of that series Britannia - horrid, but that was amazing!)

I've really wanted Playmobil to come out with a medieval/Renaissance plague doctor for quite some time, and I'm worried that the current situation might put that in bad taste  :-\
We get up at twelve and start to work at one, take an hour for lunch, and then at two we're done.

I apologize for the double post, but I just wanted to mention that I love the suggestions in this thread. Ismene mentioned a few different ballet/ballerina characters-- how about the White Swan and Black Swan from Swan Lake?

I also love Janilew's suggestion of a traditional barbershop singer character with striped suit and straw hat. I could work him into my Victorian world very nicely indeed!

I feel like the characters from Clue-- Colonel Mustard, Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum--could make nice figures, and could come with their various proposed murder weapons. Though this might be a bit too adult for Playmobil!

I do know people who would snatch up such a figure despite (or because of) the current situation.

Clue would be fun. It would probably require licensing, but it's less adult than some previous klickies (like the executioner).

Clue (the game known as Cluedo outside North America) characters would be great! Despite murderous intents. The Ghostbusters ghosts weren't exactly benign, were they?
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)

Iīd like such a Figure too. :uhoh:
So some time ago I made these. Their 'birdnoses' are not as large as the historically were, but I wanted to use unaltered original parts only...

Hadoque Iím really liking your kitbashed Plague Doctors.
It doesnít matter how big or small your Playmobil collection is, itís what you do with it that matters.

Those are lovely, Hadoque!  :love:  Certainly far better than I could have expected using unaltered parts. Do you sell any of your custom figures? I'm sure you could make some good money on those guys alone! I think you might have more than a couple interested buyers here already!  ;D

Ismene, I don't know how I could have forgotten about the executioner! I owned him as a child, and might have been a bit too delighted with him considering he ended the lives of most of my royal court at one point or another  :-[

Children are more morbid than adults realize. :lol: I read Sherlock Holmes at an early age, so Clue/Cluedo toys makes perfect sense to me.

I wonder if I have a witch nose somewhere.

They are appropriately creepy, I love them.
