Birthday present 70604 "Stargazer"
« on: March 07, 2021, 01:26:53 »
I'm celebrating my 50th birthday today (Sunday), so it's most fortunate that Playmobil just released the gift set "Stargazer" (Geschenkset "Sternengucker"), so that I could spoil myself. ;D Ever since first setting eyes on him in the catalogue, I have been looking forward to getting this man of science, so it's very nice to do so today.



There is an extra leaflet in the box. Is this a Brexit thing?



All parts are great:




It's always great when new Playmobil printed materials are released. To my eye the ones in this set appear a bit too modern for a Renaissance setting. The globe also shows all continents (except Antartica), which would be off as well, but luckily features a sea serpent:



Get this set. It's great!

Best wishes
StJohn

 <:D StJohn! A milestone indeed!
That's a lovely set, one for my want list too. Not available on playmobil.co.uk yet either  :(

Maybe, but the fact the British Isles are missing from the globe might be too!

I actually thought that was what was meant at first  :lol: :lol:

I love the look of this set, glad you got yourself a nice treat for your birthday!

I have found that in some 2021 boxes and even in new Plus sets, but not in all of them. It sometimes also has that text on the box or Plus bag (of the boxes or bags made in 2021).
