If anyone finds out any dirt on playmobil, please make sure to tell me to put ear muffs to muffle my auditory senses, because I like thinking of playmobil as pure and good people out to inspire the world : )

At least it's not just me. A misplaced desire and all, but.. I WISH.

How geobra treated collectors when they summarily ended the Playmobil Collectors Club. That led some of us to wonder how pure and good they are. Several collectors- and a few staff- worked very hard to set it up. We were never told the real reason why it was scrapped. Perhaps some members behaved badly? May their abs plastic go yellow prematurely and their stickers crumble and crack.

I KNOW they don't give a darn about us, and avoid us like the plague. No idea why, but I believe THAT is why the PCC ended. It is about how much they value us. I thought that was loud and clear. The rest are excuses, and lame ones at that. I don't wonder. IMO.  :'(  >:(

That said, I would still WANT them to be above. Better than. Silly and corny, I am aware of that. I am stupid that way.

For me an even more frightening curse would be "may they apply their stickers misaligned and not notice till they are too stuck on to pull them off without tearing them, making it impossible to readjust them"  :skull:

As for their abs being plastic, I didn't know there was such surgery available  :o

The only acceptable stickers are the ones with a little notch to allow perfect allignment.
