Title: JLMatterer's Collection
Post by: JLMatterer on April 22, 2016, 17:04:44
I'm approaching my 1st anniversary; I made my first Playmobil purchase on May 6, 2015. To celebrate, I've been buying Playmobil like mad for the past couple of months; here is MOST of what I purchased in the past 3-4 weeks, lumped together on one table in no particular plan. There are a few things not here, including 5 sets that I got right after taking the pictures, one of which is still in the box.

You have been busy! You're keeping fairly within a theme there so it all sort of fits together pretty well.

Great additions and very nice pictures!!
I didn't get pictures of my new additions from last summer until today. I think I have to do the same as you did here!
Very nice idea! Thanks for sharing.

George. :)

Title: 4672
Post by: JLMatterer on April 27, 2016, 22:39:22
I ordered 4672 today from a toy store in Atlanta, GA. I'm hoping this store will turn out to be a good source for Playmobil. We'll see how this first order goes.

Oh well - no luck with the last order. of the Archer. They refunded my payment due to being no longer available. That's a pity, as there were many older items at their online shop that I've wanted for awhile & I suspect they're probably not in supply.
Title: Happy Meal - Sheriff
Post by: JLMatterer on April 30, 2016, 21:18:45
I was given a chance to get to Classic Plastics Toy Store last week; this is the store in Parkersburg, WV, where  I found the old klickies a few weeks ago.

(http://i.imgur.com/rFl9Ylc.jpg?1)

I found two treats: The first was a baggie with a knight klickie & a horse. going for $0.49. The klicky is the Blue Knight, 4616. The horse I can't identify. All I can comment on is that the saddle is not a separate piece.

(http://i.imgur.com/DHyO4Rv.jpg?1)

Through DS I've found all the other pieces for the Blue Knight set except the shield & the helm plume. Can you help in my quest?  :P

The other item was an unopened Happy Meal from 1982, the sheriff with rifle & rocking chair. It was $4.99; I don't think I'm going to open it but instead keep it as is. I was very excited to get it.  :lmao:

THe store has been advised to keep me abreast of any new Playmobil that comes in.  :lol:

Yes, I have both those spare. But someone nearer you may have them and help save on shipping costs (I am in UK).

Here it is http://animobil.info/text/3e258fc-1027.html (http://animobil.info/text/3e258fc-1027.html). Its an oldie!


The other item was an unopened Happy Meal from 1982,

eeoouw!

Oh, I see. Nice find! The toy which set back the acceptance of Playmobil in the US by 20 years. (that's probably a bit harsh, tbh).

Post by: GrahamB on May 01, 2016, 21:01:31
How do you mean?

Oh, I just meant that Macdonalds withdrew the US giveaways due to worries that children might swallow the small parts (possibly masticating them in preference to the Happy Meal?). I got the impression from some of the things I read about this that it did not exactly help PM's marketing in the US at the time, but maybe I got that wrong? No offence meant, well not to PM anyway, but you might guess I am not a fan of the big M company!
Title: Re: JLMatterer's Collection
Post by: Macruran on May 01, 2016, 21:22:00
I guess I was unaware of that or, more likely, once knew and forgot about it. A McDonkey's sherriff was my first klicky, as far as I can remember, so in my case at least it worked. I don't know if I whined in order to get them but I distinctly remember having a western wagon and a firefighter team in the wake of the sherriff.

Haven't eaten at Donkey's in probably almost two decades.

And some information from Wikipedia:

"Playmobil was introduced to the USA by Mattel and Schaper.[8] In 1982, Schaper arranged a promotion to distribute Playmobil toys nationwide as in McDonald's Happy Meals. The five Playmobil toys that were to be included in the promotion were a Sheriff, an Indian, a Sheriff's Horse, an Umbrella Girl and a Farmer. Approximately 10 million of the Sheriff and Indian Playmobil toys were distributed from October 22 through November 1, 1982. Before the other toys could be distributed McDonald's ceased distribution and promotion of Playmobil at its restaurants after tests showed that the toy failed to comply with Consumer Product Safety Commission standards designed to prevent children under three from choking on dangerous items. (The Playmobil toys were not involved in any reported choking incidents.) McDonald's customers with children under three who received these toys were advised to discontinue their use and return the toys to a McDonald's in exchange for a dessert, a cone, or a refund."

So the part about setting back PM's reputation in the US may not be true, but it adds a bit more interest to these McD figures. Sorry to hijack your topic, JLM!

Title: My 1st Birthday - 1 Year Collecting
Post by: JLMatterer on May 06, 2016, 01:36:20
On May 6th I celebrate 1 year of collecting Playmobil.  :cham: My adventures in Klicky Land began when I ordered 4768 Lion Knight with Training Dummy from Amazon. Little did I know what I was about to begin...

(http://i.imgur.com/kqM5esc.jpg)

Today I have approx. 177 different sets, 66 Fi?ures, & few extras. This very roughly averages out to 1 new set or klicky every 1.5 days.  :(o):

Title: 5893 Carrying Case Pony Farm from Used Toy Store
Post by: JLMatterer on June 28, 2016, 17:01:04
The "classic" toy store in Parkersburg, WV, often holds Playmobil for me whenever they find any; this was the last thing they had for me. I got it yesterday & it is in excellent condition (the carry case isn't even scuffed), & is only absent a few pieces. The girl klickie (40 11 1660) is missing, as well as a mole, the carrots, & 2 turnips. Unfortunately, DS here & in the UK is out of stock on the girl, so until I can find her, this spare boy klickie, also from the used toy store, works nicely with the original set's hat. The other pieces I have from other sets, so I added them for the picture. I didn't bother with the mole because I find them a little disturbing.  :lol:

The best part - a friend picked it up for me from the store, & gave it to me, saying, "Look! There's even horse... manure!" Sure enough, there is a pretty pile of plastic Playmobil pony poo-poo! (Look in the wheelbarrow.) The DB has this classified as, of all things, "Ice cream, scoops in a pile"!!!!!! LOL.... Those are amazing ponies, that can produce frozen chocolate treats!

Yes, chocolate ice cream/pony poo is a longstanding amusement for collectors. It's been used as both things at different times in different sets.
Title: Bookshelf
Post by: JLMatterer on July 05, 2016, 16:14:10
The books in my bedroom are being moved to the library & Playmobil is taking over the bookshelf. It gives me a lot of pleasure to have klickies to look at all day long while in my room. Here's what I've got so far. The very top shelf is being saved for the Super 4 fairy tower & technopolis sets.

This is just the shelf in my bedroom. There are three more identical shelves, mostly full, in the library. Plus 9 full storage boxes on the floor, & stuff all over the set-up table, & assorted bags....

My birthday is in 12 days & there are 16 unopened sets waiting for me, piled on the floor, with 2 more expected in the mail soon. I've been saving Playmobil since Christmas for a special Christmas in July birthday; since I was sick last December, I saved all my Playmobil presents for a later time, & have been adding to the pile since then.

I was going to wait until the actual day to start opening, but temptation is hitting.

Title: 4847 Treasure Hunters
Post by: JLMatterer on July 07, 2016, 03:18:40
I got this a few weeks ago for $8 in a sidewalk sale; the vehicle is an actual working metal detector. When turned on and placed over anything made of metal (such as the red "rocks" that come with the set), the detector's alarm goes off. The rock landscape & tree will work will many other things; the big lizard is kind of cute. A winner at twice the price!

It comes with the landscape base with cave & tree with hanging vine, two klickies, a flashlight, rifle, big yellow lizard, metal rocks, & the metal detector-on-wheels. The detector takes 2 AAA batteries.

Those silver headbands are good on chainmail hair as it gets rid of the step.

Those longer trunk pieces on the trees, would they be the right length to replace the rocks and short trunk that the Super 4 Jousting stand sits on? I don't have any so can't check myself.

Indian Girl with Forest Animals 5278

Comes in an orange Easter Egg, which can also be used as a piggy bank. I bought this in conjunction with 5252 Indian Children with Animals, which I'll be opening soon. The two will then most likely merge for convenience sake to make one joint display.

She looks good, though Playmobil could put a little more love into the bunnies and deer. I mean they look like lawn ordiments one solid color with no added detail, at least they took the time on the racoon.

I find the utensils very pleasing for some reason.

There's a tension in Playmobil between abstraction and detail. The movement over time has been towards more detail. Recently updated animals have been ever more detailed (see e.g. horses and sheep). The unpainted ones definitely stick out in this set.

Well all things come with time. The details will come eventually. Like with these:

My partner's mother has been on life-support this past week in UPMC in Pittsburgh, PA. Things have been rough all week, but on Friday I had a chance to leave the hospital & visit a Pittsburgh toy store, S.W. Randall; there are 3 of these stores in Pittsburgh, & I went to the one closest to hospital. The store is actually in a very nice section of town, despite the presence of the derelict in the picture. Sadly, there was only a little Playmobil, but for the sake of being there, I purchased 5294 Architect with Planning Table. (There was thick dust on the box.) The clerk, however, told me the other two stores had more Playmobil, so perhaps I'll get the chance to find out.

We actually walked past the store because I thought it was a lingerie shop; those are just Hallowe'en costumes hanging in the window.

Yes - I'll probably get a couple more, eventually. I wish I had the cap in black. He's the same hair & beard as the recent Zeus; they look good together.

They arrived yesterday at my local toy store. I was the first person to buy one as I showed up as they were unpacking the shipment. They also received their order of HTTYD & everything is supposed to be unpacked & on the shelves by today. If I don't make it there today there will certainly be a s Saturday run.

They’re from set 3632 ;-) , quite a coincidence, I’m using the klickies for my circus diorama! Great set, I got it during my chidhood.

These are some of the 1st Playmo pics I've taken. The set-up is not very good as I wasn't really in the mood but I wanted some shots of the snowfall we had yesterday.

This is the new RC Roadster, with background & accessories coming from an Advent Calender of 2 years ago. I hadn't considered getting the other 2 RC vehicles released with this one, but I'm going to have to now, as this is pretty nifty & I love it. It's a fun piece.

You think a particular theme or some new sets are not for you, you can save some money there, then you get hold of one and you're hooked! It happened to me with 4340 (http://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=4340). Not my cup of tea at all, but when I got hold of one (in a mixed lot) I couldn't sell it. It's so neat, the way it folds up and the manufacture is so precise, it just feels good! Darn clever, those PM designers!

Post by: JLMatterer on February 02, 2019, 20:15:52
I was at Sir Troy's Toy Kingdom today & saw that they had series 15 out for sale. I have 2 cases on order & so wasn't going to bother, but I decided to play a hunch. The grasshopper on the bag is in the lower right corner, so I went to the third row of the display box & grabbed the 2nd bag in the row (essentially the box's lower right corner). I at once felt a fiddle!! The # on back for this bag was 18 U 34. The next two bags in the row were also 18 U 34, so I grabbed them as well. (I thought I should leave at least one for someone else.) I was pretty pleased to open the bags.
