I took all 3 of my medieval shops to Piedmont Lake today: http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/piedmontlake (http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/piedmontlake)

It was VERY windy & I didn't want to put out a lot of things to be lost by sudden gusts, otherwise there would have been more klickies in play. AND... I forgot to put the shingles on the bakery... BOO...  :'( ... but Playmobil is about having fun regardless of mistakes so I'm happy with the pictures.

I'm planning on doing this set-up again but with more klickies & other accessories, as long as the wind & weather allow it.

Title: Baron von Steuben
Post by: JLMatterer on June 06, 2016, 22:11:45
Friedrich Wilhelm August Heinrich Ferdinand Steuben, known as the Baron von Steuben, was not only named after Friedrich the Great, the King of Prussia, but was also his godson. Steuben was a prominent military leader in the American Revolutionary War.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Wilhelm_von_Steuben (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Wilhelm_von_Steuben)

As can be seen by von Steuben's portrait, he bore a great resemblance to Playmobil's Friedrich the Great!

(http://i.imgur.com/FjYP6AK.jpg?1)

In 1786, a fort was built along the Ohio River & was named after von Steuben. It eventually evolved into the city of Steubenville, Ohio, where I was born & now live. In the 1980s, a reproduction of the fort was built on the original site & now serves as a historical attraction & learning center. This past weekend I began volunteer work here & will soon be a reenactor, wearing a costume & giving tours.

Today I took von Steuben's godfather, Friedrich the Great, to the fort, where he gladly transformed himself into Baron von Steuben for the camera.

Title: Western Folk
Post by: JLMatterer on June 10, 2016, 18:36:03
I'm spending hours every day at Fort Steuben, learning how to give tours, etc. Today I helped the kids make waxed pine cones (colonial air fresheners). Today's pics were practice on learning how to take shots inside the buildings - the lighting is tricky. This is going to motivate me to get more Western klickies, as the outdoors & inside settings would work for both Wild West & US Civil War.

It's not a theme I collect (apart from some ACW troops) but I really like the look of a lot of the Western figures. That family especially has sorely tempted me. To see them in a historically correct background is a real treat!

It is feeling rather Christmassy.

I have presents from Christmas I haven't opened yet; I decided to save them for my birthday this month, so I could celebrate Christmas in July. There are two big Western sets I've had since December waiting for me to hit 55 soon.

My reasoning is this: we're ALWAYS broke in July due to various bills, & my birthday is very rarely celebrated. This year, regardless of finances, I have Playmobil to open that day. I actually can't believe I haven't opened these yet; my will power must be strong.

I think it can be used for a few different things; my first thought was a viewing stand at a wildlife zoo or nature reserve. I bought two of them when they became cheap.

Title: Birdie's Contest Prize
Post by: JLMatterer on August 18, 2016, 23:25:45
For my prize for the June photo contest, I chose 6311 Summer Fun, which is a mini board game played with a BBQ chef klicky & four camping lanterns. I never opened the packet containing the board, as I probably won't play the game, but the klicky had a good trip from Belgium is & happy in his new home in the USA.

(http://i.imgur.com/Z7xh2jr.jpg?1)

Rather unexpectedly, two of Birdie's birdies from Belgium joined the traveler on his journey across the Atlantic & were warmly welcomed to the States.

(http://i.imgur.com/4r0qMYX.jpg?1)

BBQ chef klicky needed more than lanterns, though, so I found 6245 BBQ Accessories for him; he was pleased to throw his first 'merican BBQ at Tappan Lake in Ohio.

(http://i.imgur.com/S4xXgfd.jpg?1)

The birdies were quite happy with the choice of refreshments.

(http://i.imgur.com/vs2Qkm3.jpg?1)

A sexy bearded BBQ chef does not live by meat alone, however...

(http://i.imgur.com/hr8aGpM.jpg?1)

... so he soon had the company of the very sexy Woman in Hammock 4861.

Post by: JLMatterer on September 27, 2016, 16:31:50
First of all, for the most part I've abandoned Facebook in all aspects except for keeping in contact with some close friends & anything Playmobil related. I'm actually enjoying being on FB again. although just for brief bits. However, today for a lark I tried out one of those FB Name Tests called "What Bible quote gives you strength?" (No, I'm not a Bible-thumper.) Since my FB avatar is also my Playmobil avatar, I ended up getting this spiffy meme-graphic which works REALLY well with my klicky monk.

I agree with one of your blog posts about the dragon 4838 (being reissued in green for Super4) being a one of the best, but I've also recently found 5482, & think it's pretty magnificent, as well.

OK - I have to ask! Are you referring to the fact that the wings don't "click" into place? Mine certainly don't, & I don't know if this is how they all are or if I ended up with a faulty one. I was going to post a query about it here.  :wave:

Darell & I worked with the wings for about 15 minutes until we gave up.  :lol:

I actually ordered another one from Ebay (sans the rock) to see if it would work differently. (It was only $5.99.)  :P

I've bought 2 more of these dragons, & it turns out the first one I got was even more of a lemon than others. My 2nd & 3rd of these have wings that are wobbly & such but stay attached for the most part; the first has wings that completely fall off constantly. I still love this particular dragon, though, & am glad to have acquired more with better wings. I hope to get several more of them, actually.
Title: Dragons of Castle Rock
Post by: JLMatterer on April 13, 2017, 15:08:30
I recently got the castle from 3269, sometimes called Castle Rock. It was from Ebay & incomplete with no klickies or accessories, & missing just a few castle pieces, such as windows & ladders, etc. I hope to replace all castle parts that are missing but am not worried about the rest. It was a good price & I am glad to include it with my castles. I took it out for photographs, but the sun was VERY bright & harsh that day; most shots were ruined by sunspots but I saved what I could. These aren't the greatest pictures but I had fun & that's what matters.

I've bought 2 more of these dragons (...) 

I hope to get several more of them, actually.

Why not invest in different ones? There are SO many...

I quit going for two of each "type" when it means twins. Far too many.

I've been buying lots of dragons in the past few months; in fact, I know I've gone overboard but dragons seem to be my kick right now. I've recently acquired:

Battle Dragon 5482
Giant Dragon 4838
Shield Dragon 5484
Advent Calendar 5493
New Red Dragon 6498
New Green Dragon 6003 X2
Dragon Rock 5840 X4
Dragon Castle Tower 4836
12-inch Green Dragon 5921 X2
12-inch Red Dragon 5912
Green Dragon 7876 X2
Red Dragon 3327
Black Dragon 7944
Ice Sculpture Dragon 5374

My Recent Dragons (http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/your_set_list.pl?setlist=5482,4838,5484,5493,6498,6003,5840,4836,5921,5912,7876,3327,7944,5374;title=Your%20Set%20List)

Are there any others you would recommend?

That's a whole lot of dragons :love:


Are there any others you would recommend?

The asian one (5483), and the new fairy one (soooo cute).. and of course the new super 4 green dread.

All the little ones (like 4793) - cause they are ADORABLE.

I am also looking forward to the "how to train your dragon" ones...

I have the Asian 5483, & the knight & dragon of 4793, & several of the little ones that size. Also, the 4 Dragon Warrior foil bags. Looking forward to the Super 4 red. After buying 4 of the Rock Dragons with the wonky wings, I finally got one with wings that are very nearly perfect.

The forest behind the village, and the lake as a backdrop for the castle. Gorgeous! I agree about the moss, it works so well.

I think I would give the houses a back wall, so that you can't look through them.

They're all "herd" to me...   :P

Was it "thunder"? Where did I read that? Eragon? I believe so - Angela called them that, but not sure...

But not according to this: Fun With Words: Collective Nouns (http://www.rinkworks.com/words/collective.shtml)

Quote
flight of dragons
weyr of dragons
wing of dragons

It is a very old concrete table in the midst of a forest. There are several more tables in the area equally lichenous, so I'll probably start moving about for pictures. It is a very isolated park that date backs 100+ years.

So far there are about 6000 pages worth of story which have been converted into about 64 episodes. So just a small story really.

Can't say I watch a lot of tv either, at least not tv channels. GoT definitely is worth watching. Not a lot of dragon stuff in it but the stuff coming out lately is awesome.

Great pics again, JLM, lovely settings, imaginative posing (those red dragons look like they are actually writhing in your pictures!). As you said, having fun taking the pics is an important ingredient for success.

Keep 'em coming!

(You do know that was a personal opinion, right? I am not even a mod here)

She is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute  :love: :love:

Here are more of the Spin Master HTTYD. Of the mini-figures, I have the entire set, though 2 of them are not in the picture because they haven't arrived yet from the Ukraine. (!!!) The gold & clear blue Toothlesses are "rare" figures. What's missing are the rare silver Stormfly & bronze Hookfang. The large Gronckle is a different series.

Title: My BelÚn de Playmobil for 2017
Post by: JLMatterer on January 10, 2018, 01:48:11
Last year, I discovered that throughout France & Spain at Christmastime, many towns & cities put on public displays of Bethlehem & the Nativity, which are called "BelÚnes." (BelÚn means Bethlehem), & a "BelÚn de Playmobil" is often featured. This year I decided to begin the tradition for myself. Today I finally took pictures of my BelÚn de Playmobil for 2017. Next year I want a bigger set-up.

I attend Mass here: The Order of the Sacred & Immaculate Hearts (http://heartsofjesusandmary.com/) I took these pictures to post on Facebook as a surprise for them. All the characters are the real people I know, including Bishop Geoffrey. The Order enjoyed them very much!  :D

HIdden away in the hills of Ohio is the monastery of the Sacred & Immaculate Hearts. On this day, Sr Maria has flowers for the statue of Our Mother, & Sr Theresa has requests for the prayer basket. Then, Fr Francis arrives, & they all sing an "Ave." Br James & Br John Paul soon follow with red roses to offer. The Order is excited when Bishop Geoffrey enters the scene! He leads them in praying, "Hail! Holy Queen!" Afterward, they all enjoy each other's fellowship.

Reminds me of the Sedlec Ossuary.

You have a way to set up the scene very much like a movie director.

Very entertaining indeed  :munch:

Love those Victorian photos.

Watched the video right after you put it up. It's a great shop with some older sets that have otherwise gone away. Hopefully they get enough turnover to keep the Playmobil section profitable. Do they do mail order at all?

Yes, they do. I've told him about this forum, & said he may get people contacting him, so I think it's all good. Don't go by their website - it has essentially nothing listed for sale. You can find them on Amazon but he has to charge extra for Amazon fees, so contacting the store would be cheaper.

There is apparently a lot of stuff still not put out - he said they just got in a BIG shipment.

That Pteranodon is just having a friendly chat (a sort of snapchat actually) with that spotty lizard!

I love the setting, JLM, especially in the low angle shots. I think this is your favourite location for a PM shoot?

This is actually 2 different places, neither of which are the location you're probably referring to. :-) The 1st set is at McMahon Creek, south-west of where I live in Ohio, & the 2nd is at a rest stop next to the Ohio River in Fly, OH. (Yes, "Fly.") In the background of the pics with the T-Rex, the water is the Ohio River & the hillsides beyond are the state of West Virginia.

I think what you're remembering is Piedmont Lake, also in Ohio, & possibly aTappan Lake, nearby. Piedmont has become terribly overgrown & not so good for shots right now.

BTW re: the "kebab machete." The one you sent me (TX again!) was black, & I remember that the one I lost was silver, which my friend remembered as well. I checked the box & pics online, & the set is supposed to come with the black knife. I have to wonder if this was a one-time mistake or if the US shipment got silver blades?

Regardless, I prefer having the black one, so it was a lucky loss for me. :-)

I think I have a couple of questions for you, so please expect a PM at one pont. TX again....  :wave:

Title: Turning on the Mayor to Playmobil
Post by: JLMatterer on October 15, 2018, 03:25:42
Three days ago I had business in downtown Steubenville & ended up having an hour to kill, so I went to Old Fort Steuben with my camera & couple of klickies; I took the nutcracker & the colonial soldier from Series 14. The Fort hosts a Nutcracker Village at Christmastide, & the soldier looks a little like Baron von Steuben, for whom the original 18th c. fort was named after. The current mayor of Steubenville is a man who has been key in creating the current Fort park & museum, & he was there when I walked in. He's met me before, & after I took pictures, I asked him if he knew about Playmobil, then showed him my 2 figures. He was delighted, & the director of the Fort came out & he showed them to her. I had to write "Playmobil" on a piece of paper for him to be able to look up more about it.

Of course, after I thought about it, Ir realized that giving him a nutcracker would be a good thing to do, so I'm dropping off one of my extras to him this week. Here'are the pictures i took that day.

 :lol:

Seriously though, if you could wangle this into an official PM klicky for the museum, like they've done for many German museums already, you would achieve a mighty triumph for klickydom. Please double down and maybe reach out to the Gnomes of Zirndorf regarding this possibility! I dream of a series of US historical klickies...  :cloud9:

Also, nice job putting the bayonet out at the end of the musket barrel! Looks great.  :)9 Ideally it would be on the starboard side, but the perfect is the enemy of the good!  ;D

Yes, I've actually been thinking about that for awhile, & tossed the notion to them last week. I plan on taking the Frederick the Great figure/box & a few other of the specials to show them. The current Baron von Steuben (yes, there is still one) visited the Fort a few years ago, from Germany, so maybe we can get him to push the idea to Zirndorf. :-D

I did go to the Fort today, & gave the Mayor a Nutcracker, still in the package. He saw the bag, & said, "Alright! Alright!" I had to leave before he could open it, but he knew what it was & seemed pretty happy.

Looks like the old new wise man with a different hat. Not to be confused with the new new wise man that just came out in Germany. So far they are up to 12 wise men and three wise boys. At least now we have a wise man for each day of the 12 Days of Christmas.

Great photos Jim, I like that Fairy Forest diorama.
