Thank you for the heads-up ;)

And they master the printing of a label with a foreign address! :o

Thanks. I see the museum ships to the US, so I'll be ordering 2 of each.

Excellent, I ordered  directly from them for the Milkmaid, and may have to again.

Thanks! They could have done better, though.

Rembrandt - I fail to see much resemblance. Wild tuft of hair on the painting, strange cap on the figure.

And a FAT van Gogh? I imagined him differently.

The mini paintings may be the best parts of these sets.

I don't think that's a fat klicky...

It's a miracle!  8}

Yeah I also think it's just a shadow.
I like him!

Thanks for sharing Nico! I love that kind of sets, the kind it's impossible to resist. Here, I especially like Van Gogh and both paintings in their frames. I hope it's not a fat klicky too...

Yay!  :woohoo: :cheerlead: :confetti: Thanks Nico!

Rembrandt is indeed a tough one, he doesn't have a distinct "image" in the popular mind, or rather, his distinct image is pretty much his face, which of course can't be done in klicky form. There are no typical clothes he is known by. Compare to the Duerer klicky, from the very distinctive self portrait. Oh well, nice to have anyway and another advance for cultural sets!

Van Gogh easier to do, with his red beard and usually a hat. They picked a nice painting to do. Compare to the Planeta series Van Gogh from not too long ago (not sure about those boots):

These are lovely sets, thanks for sharing!

Is the picture frame in the Rembrant set a new colour? I don't think I've seen it in the wood.

I'd be interested in how these are designed. Do the museum just contact them and say 'We'd like a Van Gogh' and then the design team at Playmobil come back with a design to be approved?

Thanks for the heads-up! Luckily Van Gogh turned out to be a standard klicky.

Rembrandt's not bad, but Van Gogh really overshadows him he's a must have.

Want! I have a soft spot for Van Gogh. But I should probably wait because it's 2020 and my computer just died.  :-\

I saw some images of the figures (without boxes) on FB a few weeks ago, and thought they were customs... :wall:
Meanwhile I ordered some sets a few days ago, shipping-cost is pretty steep to ship to a ... neighbouring country.

I think they could have done a bit better job with Rembrandt.
Probably the mould for the old black "Patricier"-hat from the 80s is not avaible anymore? They then could have used instead one of the hats-types from the "Black Pete"-figures, with or without a feather.
As he is now, he does resemble a few of his (many) selfportraits, but I think with the hat Geobra chose he looks rather 19th-century and too 'modern'. They could also have gone with a different wig to give him a more 17th-century look. And maybe a different collar. And he lacks shoulder-pads or a cloak or something... Just too 'plain' like he is now, imho.

Hey speaking of shipping costs I'm planning to get mine in the new year, if any YANKEES want to double up let me know.
