Title: The new faces
Post by: tonguello on March 18, 2012, 21:18:59
Poll will run for 10 days.

You can vote 4 times (one per each clicky face). Or just once if you love them all.

Let's see if somehting interesting comes up.

Here's a vissual aid.

The only new face I voted for was the sad convict. I really like him.

The skater looks unbelievable with the classic face! Now I can't wait to get him!

The vampire lady with classic face could be the winner of the next hottest Playmo Babe contest :inlove:

I like all with the classic face, apart from the first one, which just doesn't look quite right :-\

Damo :)

Yeah, he looks like a guy in a business suit putting on a crazy wig at a office party. :lol: But the painted face is terrible. I think he'd be better with stubble and a pair of sunglasses, not the painted ones but the real ones.

Btw, thanks for the pics of all these with their classic faces, Gaston, I've been wanting to see them. The lady vamp is going to make a great saloon gal. :love:

the skater looks great in his classic face - the other face is so creepy! :0

Thanks a lot for running this! I haven't seen close pictures of the new faces or pictures of these figures with the classic faces, so thank you! The female vampire does look quite nice, and while I'm unsure about the consequences of the convict's sad face, it does look nice.

Oh, and are the classic faces still moulded correctly like they should be? And does that mean the convict's face is "double-moulded"?

The rocker looks ok I think, but I agree would be better with the usual stubble on a regular face and the separate sunglasses.
The vampire also works ok since it sort of has the usual face shape, and it's supposed to be scary anyway.
Sad prisoner I don't really like but it will certainly be useful for photo stories.
Don't like the skater face at all, definitely needs classic there.

I'd like to see a sad face without the stubble or any other printing. Just a sad classic face.

Post by: tonguello on March 19, 2012, 00:25:26
I love the skater in the classic face... LOVE IT!!!!
The rocker does look really bad in the classic one.....  :-[ I love the other one.
Have you noticed the eyes on the sad prisioner are bigger that in the classic smily face?
The vampire... not sure.... the printed face is growing on me.... it does make her look more vampire-like but mmmm... I still voted for the classic one.

the sad face is not molded.... it is printed (eyes and mouth... and beard of course)

the only nice new face is the rocker ,his hair look stupid at a plain face , but looks cool with the painted one.  :) THE ONE WHICH IS HORRIBLE IS THE SKATER'S PAINTED FACE!!!!!!!! what are they thinking ? it's so creepy  :no: :no: :no: :no: :no: :no: :no: :no: :no:

for the vampire lady they could have just printed the teeth on the mouth just like they did with the dracula special...

I reckon that would have looked much better. They could have even added the fancier eyebrows to the normal eyes too... It makes me wonder if the classic face would look okay if it stayed the same but were available in other colours. Hmm... I wouldn't mind some blue-eyed figures! ;)

..... perhaps there should be the option also ' I dont like any of these new faces '

I think playmobil should only have the classic happy smile and nothing else. This vew may also be shared by others here and  i think it would be nice to see that option in that vote ( if possible of course and if its creator agrees of course )

 :) :) :) :) :)

well, I didn't put that option because as you can vote for 4 options you can vote for all classic faces and that's the same.

Also... I didn't put the option "I hated them all" cause I don't think anyone here, in their right mind, hates the classic smily face  :lol: :lol: :lol:

I used to hate those... Most of our older guys were all shaved.... Back then, we didn't have a bunch of each (except the feds, of course)..

Now I like variety (hate to see a "force" in uniform faces/hair)...

Everyone is entitiled to his/her own opinion . One great this about this forum is that within the rules we are free to express our views and some of us , like me are hardcore when it comes to such things. I think the beard was enough if you ask me , the unshaved, angry , vampire, red eyes, strange smiles etc faces are all wrong and nothing should ever replace the classic smiley .  but that is my opinion and this post is about voting about something else so i will stop here  0) 0) 0)

I voted for the classic smiles for all the klickies  btw  ;D ;D

I like all of the faces as they look in these photo but, when I've seen the new faces in other photos I wasn't at all keen on them so I'm wary heredefiantely prefer a classic face  :)

I didn't know you thought that. So none of the denizens of Krull are unshaven? :o

I just looked at some of your threads, and even Emperor Iseroth has a beard! :lol: I guess they either have a seemingly long one or none at all... I think the unshaven face is far better than some of these ones though!

The sad convict face and the vampire lady face are the only new faces that I voted for. I think that the new rocker face and especially the skater face look much too Legoish. :no:
Title: Re: The new faces
Post by: tonguello on March 23, 2012, 01:31:58
but don't you think that the plain classic face on the rocker looks .... silly and washed-up? maybe with molded glasses and some unshaven beard or something else....  :-\

I agree. The printed one is definitely bad, but the classic one also looks really bizarre with that hair. Moulded glasses and an unshaven face would probably look better.

The prisoner's sad face is cool, like Tim suggested for pics or photostories.
The vampire-lady's face looks cool, as long as it can be exorcised occasionally by switching the head 180  ;D
The rockstar's face seems ... just okay. Removable sunglasses would have been better but since I'm not into the modern theme, I don't really care the glasses are printed on  ;D

About the skater:
It's FREAKIN HORRID.

I totally agree with that! Hopefully they won't reuse this ridiculous face on other klickies.

when  my boys saw the new skater kid put together they instantly said  "hey look its Max" Max is or was legos mascot . I guess Geobra is still shamelessly copying lego  ::)

I'm actually okay with these new faces, even the skater, on these particular klickies.  What I don't want to see is them becoming the norm like the stubble and angry eyebrows has become. >:(  Having a unique face in a certain set is fine, but 90% of the time I think Playmobil should stick with their classic smiley face. :)
Title: Re: The new faces
Post by: Rasputin on March 27, 2012, 05:36:42
Are the new faces pretty much isolated to the Fi?ures only? To me it looks like the majority of the boxed sets mainly come with the classic Klicky face. Each boxed set has one or more and some have half a dozen.  The ratio seems to be on the classic side. The classic face with stubble or angry seem to go with the more aggressive sets such as Pirates, adventure, Knights etc.......
Title: Re: The new faces
Post by: Pynedor on March 27, 2012, 18:21:47
It seems that the new faces are just in the Series figures... for now. But the printed-on classic-style faces (like the angry ones) are in other sets, and that's unfortunate. :(

Playmobil seems to be running wild with prints. Its stamperific good times over in Zirndorf. I think after they find out the prints wear off over time they will re-think this position. Auctions full of faceless klickies will be a bad reflection on quality

True, indeed. The printing quality isn't even good on the ones that I have, so they look not only cheaper but just terrible. It almost looks like the printing machines were low or something, with some already looking partially faded or "blurry".

I agree. The printed one is definitely bad, but the classic one also looks really bizarre with that hair. Moulded glasses and an unshaven face would probably look better.

Ditto. I think that if you were to buy the rocker, and switch his face to the classic smile, the hair would need to be changed. Actually, I think that the orange hair looks bizarre in any case, classic smile or new face. :P
Title: Re: The new faces
Post by: tahra on March 28, 2012, 07:33:29
The LACK OF printing quality has been a problem for years. It's ridiculous in some figures and accessories (posted a couple on the PROCESS, and it's also on playkingdoms). I mean, it would be fine if that was done by ME... now for what's supposed to be a high quality brand.... meh.

Oh, and I actually like the guitar player's hair! That one and the basketball player...

I voted for ''like them all'' !! And I do! Reason being, a variety in faces can show different character traits. Much you can do with swapping parts and customisation there  ;D
Lets face it, Playmobil does this for marketing issues: It may be that a child growing up in the digital world today is not too much drawn in just a smiling face. It works ok for us who grew up with it, and with more clearcut notions of, lets say, good and bad, but for someone to like playmobil today and be drawn to it, it needs to have more variety. Company's target groups is mainly children, so their strategies are directed towards them. And judging on variation, and how distinctive selection can work for different kids or adults, this marketing policy seems very effective!!
