Title: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: Tiermann on July 11, 2011, 19:41:19
About 5 years ago there was a discussion thread on this topic. Since then I think that about half or more of the animals talked about have been done. So what's next? What new animals would you like to see?

At the dinner we had in Germany the CEO of Playmobil Frau Shauer asked me what animal I most wanted to see. I said anteater. It took us a while to get that translated correctly :D So if you ever see an anteater made it's all my fault. Wouldn't it be cute to have an anteater with a baby one made like the baby koala so it could fit on the mom's back?

I would love to see an okapi! :love: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okapi

On a less obscure level, I'd LOVE to see a llama.

Also, some australian animals, like platypuses, emus, cassowarys and dingos.

Komodo dragons, lemurs, gibbons (with movable arms that could actually brachiate through the trees), african wild dogs, red river hogs, and baboons would also be cool.

Interesting topic Tim... Im not a fan of animals, but I would love to see more types of dogs and cats to use in victorian,  western and modern themes. maybe an angora-type cat... with fluffy cheeks and buchy tail  :love: or cats in diferents postures...  :) a chihuhua...  :lol:

Angora or Siam (?) cats would be fine and not too difficult.

If you are looking for something more exotic, i'd go for hanging bats (to be put into castle towers and caves  ;D)

No, they're different, but very closely related to the mountain nyala, of the same genus, along with kudu and a couple of other species. I think bongos are wonderfully distinctive-looking.

 :hmm: the way i see how much is asked for a single playmo-chicken on ebay this would surely help me to go into the first stage of customizing - adding some small parts.

 :'( in a christmas some years ago i realized my klicky-pirates should be starving from lack of things to eat and decided that it was my turn to offer them something.

Thanks...Tiermann!! This is the perfect thread and you are the perfect individual to open such a thread!! I have to read all your comments first before putting up mine two cents. But I really hope they can issue a huge set with all the animals, very much like the Noah Ark minus the Ark~~!!!

Agree.....Have you tried getting them through DS? I dont know about the UK DS or US DS...but according to the KW ETN spreadsheet.....animals are indeed more expensive than those klickies

What a great topic!  I love the all Playmobil animals and am very likely to buy any new animal that is offered, whether I need it or not.   :-[

So far, my favorite suggestion is bats!  I love bats!  I mean, I really love bats, even real ones.   :)

I like antelope too - Kudu would be nice

I think that Playmobil has done lots of great animals, but there's  one that I'd like to see added, and that's the platypus   :yup:. It would make a great set with an Australian Outback/platypus enthusiast with a camera and a platypus shirt. The platypus could have a opening beak, and a flipper that could bend using the technology from the bendable snake in 4843, http://store.playmobilusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-US-Site/en_US/Product-Show?pid=4843&cgid=Schatzjaeger (http://store.playmobilusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-US-Site/en_US/Product-Show?pid=4843&cgid=Schatzjaeger). It could be packaged as a Special or as part of an outback series.

Hi tonguello :wave: , 
A platapus is a aquatic mammal that has a beak  and flippers like a duck and a body with fur. Strangely, it lays eggs instead of giving birth to live young. It's not a very common or well known animal, which is probably why Playmobil hasn't made one yet.

oooooh! ok thanks, I know that animal now but here it is called Ornitorrinco, I didn't know the name in english.  ;)

Post by: bonniebeth on July 12, 2011, 15:56:40
Wow, ace, you really know your stuff! One thing about the platypus, though, it's illegal to export one from australia, so you'll never get to see one in a zoo outside australia. :(

The platypus is a nice idea but they are pretty small to be doing moving parts on.

Also like most things from Australia they are venomous, the males have poisoned spurs on their hind legs.

Hey Tim, Some Maltese terrier dogs and hummingbirds would be really cool.
I can imagine the hummingbirds would have to be the size of the woodpecker or a little smaller but would definitely be cool to see.   ;)

Ohh, so many cool ideas. I want a wombat. From Australia but not poissonous.

My niece wants to have bees since I told her that the bees are the one who make blossoms to cherries. (I know they would be small like butterflies)

I want a malayan tapir, baby swans, chinese dragon (I know not a real animal but I really want a chinese palast theme with cherry trees and pagodas), mouse in a piece of cheese, clown fish and fish that can be attached to a fishing rod.

I'm sure they would do a new model for it unless they were just part of a nostalgia set - like with the old safari truck.

Canada Geese would be nice

Wooly rhinoceros since they've moved into stone age.

Yes Sylvia did a custom turkey, and that's definitely an animal they should do, it's one of the few typical farm animals they've never done.

What a great topic and i like the anteater-idea but of course i join the "bat-group"...a hanging one and a flying one...that shouldn't be too difficult for geobra to realize and they could be used in so much different themes (knights, jungle, western, zoo...even the farm-theme). I've got an enclosure for them already (based on a 3079 space-station) and i hope there'll be some flying black residents some day.

...and please, no more parrots... ;)

It seems there are more Playmobil animals than I ever imagined! Swallows! Swallow babies! A green duckling! And all those different kinds of dinosaurs... 

I now want to collect quite a few of the ones I never knew existed, so as far as animals go, I'm all set for now  :)

But I am in favour of the suggested Australian animals. I would love to see a wombat!

At PCC they are taking suggestions in a thread. I am going to do a post specifically on animals based on observations among collectors. I will point out that the first animal mentioned int he thread was the okapi - which is coming out this December. So maybe they do listen on this subject.

My list:

Domestic animals:

New Longhorn Cattle
Llama
Turkey and hen (brown)

Wild animals:

Anteater
Armadillo
Bat (most wanted in a vote at PF)
Bongo
Canada Goose
Cheetah
Puffin
Snow Leopard
Tasmanian Devil
Walrus

Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: bonniebeth on November 07, 2012, 21:05:52
I mentioned a few animals there in the PCC too. Here was my list:

llama
snow leopard
ring-tailed lemur
female gorillas
male orangutans

Australian animals:
platypus
cassowary
emu
dingo
wombat

Others I wish I'd remembered to mention:
red-ruffed lemur
coquerel's sifaka
red panda
bongo
gemsbok
dik-dik
bloodhound
english bulldog
And this may sound weird, but I think cattle egrets would be cool, you know the birds that are always sitting on the backs of cows. It would be cool for them to have a way to perch on the cattle.

what about a series of extinct animals? starting with the dodo bird

It could contain an insert that would teach about were they lived and the possible reasons to their extinction

Oh yes and I would love to see more reptiles , camona dragons, geckos, camelions but in closer scale than those huge ones that they made recently
Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: Pynedor on November 07, 2012, 22:39:21
The extinct animals like the aurochs and the ones you mentioned could be included in the Prehistory theme. That would be cool.

Oh yeah the Red Panda would be fantastic! I like the idea of a lemur and a sloth too. 

What about a Capybara??? Or a true Jaguar? 

Macaques and Mandrils...

Can't remember if we've mentioned it here, but some more marine animals would be nice, like walruses, manatees, and beluga whales. And a greater variety of tropical fish, with more different molds and not just repaints of the same few molds.

Aw, chipmunks would be so cute!!! We don't have chipmunks this far south, just tons of squirrels, and I remember how I excited I was the first time I was up in New York state at discovering how much cuter they are!

And of course bushbabies are adorable. Related to that, we need some lemurs, too. At least ring-tailed and red-ruffed. Those seem to be the most popular in zoos.

Chipmunks are cute, but they rack up attitude.  They are also known as "Mini-bears" when youre camping because the amount of noise they make rummaging through the campsite sounds like a big old bear.  LOL

I love the idea of a lemur!  And a sloth would be awesome too!  Oh and definitely a platypus!

Yeah, I have been fascinated with the platypus since I was a little kid. They are so awesome. I want an Australia theme so bad.

Sloths, yes! And giant anteaters. :love:

Sasquatch is bigfoot, the legendary primate that lives in the woods of North America. And yes, I believe in him. ;)

Sasquatch/ Bigfoot is similar to the Yeti.

Yes, more than just the Koalas and Kangaroo! A Dingo would be cool and though not truly Australian a Tasmanian Devil would be awesome.  The zoo theme has been very popular so maybe they will keep expanding it to include other regions.

A Muskox would be cool or Bighorn Sheep too.

The South American rainforest would be great too.

With the difference that sasquatch is black or dark colored. You know, now they think the yeti is a bear, closely related to the polar bear, but shaggier.


Yeah, we've had an african theme, and an almost south america theme in the old jungle series, except that there are no gorillas in south america so they did it wrong. :lol: But I would like to see a better south american rain forest and an australian outback.

Yes an Amazon Rain forest (Capybara, Jaguar, Ocelot, Crocodile, Tree Frogs, Spider Monkey, Capuchin Monkey, Howler Monkey, Anaconda, Parrots, Iguana,Golden Tamarin, Anteater, just to name a few possible critters- we already have the Caiman)

As for Australia we already have the Kangaroo and Koala and Crocodile, but we could easily add the Wallaby, Dingo, Monitor Lizard, Cassowary, Platypus, Emu, Tasmanian Devil, Cockatoo, just a few possibilities)

I would like to add my vote for more females of many of the animals already produced (buffalo, moose, gorilla, elk) and males of animals already produced (sheep), as well as the following:

walrus
elephant seal

hawks
turkeys
different geese
different chickens

different pigs
different cows, bulls

Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: leefert on March 06, 2014, 03:10:58
Turkeys (both sexes) would be great!

Different ducks and geese would be great too

Yes the missing females would be good to have
Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?

Clouded Leopard!

More arctic and snow animals such as the Eurasian Lynx, arctic wolves, arctic fox (although the customs that people have done of this are pretty sufficient). The snow Leopard is a great idea, it would need a head similar to the tiger. Leopard Seals, Muskox, Golden Eagles, etc.

Cheetahs, Baboons, African Wild Dogs, Turkeys, Red Pandas, Sloths, Lemurs, Anteaters. I too, hope they do these all soon.

(Is this thread too old to post to? If it is I apologize.)

We got the bat, sort of. And the Lynx. :D

All that you just mentioned would still be great to have.

Like to see the Jackalope - or even better the bavarian version of it - the Wolpertinger - it is the same with wings.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolpertinger (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolpertinger)

Bats would be also very very nice - someone in the Klickywelt made some bats of himself - very good custom:

 okay, those bats are AMAZING! 

I still want South American Animals like Howler Monkeys and Capybara, Sloths!

And Australian: Wallaby, EMU, Dingo, Gohanna Lizards

And Baboons!  Red Pandas, Turkey (though I am slowly working on a couple custom ones).

And more BABY animals to animals that we have already (skunks, otters...)

I like the idea of a Chinchilla too.  And more dog breeds, different cat breeds...

Speaking of frisbees, are these hard or soft plastic. I have both still in boxes that I got as store giveaways but will sell so I'm curious what they're like.
Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: Tiermann on December 07, 2016, 17:31:49
They are a soft-ish plastic. Basically they are very much like the classic frisbee but with a center section that adds a little weight. They fly well.

Lemurs
Beluga Whales
Narwhal
Turkey
Bongos
Oryx

Highland Cattle

Baby animals like Otter Pups

Just to name a few

Here, "Bongo" is something to drink - something suposedly made of a bunch of different fruits : "the good flavor of the jungle" (o bom sabor da selva)

I am hearing the ad song on my head..  Ah, here it is: Um Bongo - o bom sabor da selva (original ad, youtube) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRT2P8QI-LQ)
Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: Tiermann on March 16, 2018, 16:05:06
Those are great ads. Never heard of that before, only know the animal bongo and the drums.

My top list these days is

Turkey
Anteater
New version longhorn cattle

Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: leefert on March 16, 2018, 17:49:54
Yes, the turkey is a huge want.

Id love an opposum as well.

The Longhorn cows would be fantastic too.  Just a bigger variety of the domestic animals, more pig varieties, different goats (think Boer), and make a black sheep in the new style mold
Title: Re: What Animals Would You Like to See?
Post by: Tiermann on March 16, 2018, 20:08:48
One old one I would like them to bring back is the sleeping house cat. It was a much nicer mold than the current similar cat. It has a lot of charm.

Also a bird like an African Crowned Crane
