Smyths Toys exclusives
« on: April 10, 2019, 20:25:54 »
Saw this:

Smyths Toys exclusives (link at amclicks)

I think the fairies are the most interesting, imo... Let's see Tiermann's veredict on the UNIQUENESS of the animals - the dragonling is a MUST :love:

Also like the skate one.. for SOME reason ::)  (even if the klickys all look like idiots)

The fairy one is a really nice set. The baby dragon is a new color. One of the adult unicorns has a silver instead of a gold horn. Tiersammler at Klickywelt thinks the one unicorn baby might be a new color but from these box pictures it looks like an existing one to me.

Neither of the fairies is new. Why have they got a floating bathtub?
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Thanks Tiermann... Guess we need to wait for a final assessment.. If it was just the baby dragon, I wonder if we could get him from parts...

So silly. And lazy. And lame.

I'll make a guess at
30 65 1464 - Dragon, baby, 2017-style
and
30 51 8792 - Wings of baby dragon, 2017-style

If anyone orders them, please let me know the results!

(I'll add these sets to my "instructions wanted" list - not in the official repository at the moment.)

This is the first time I have come across a UK toy store with exclusive sets.  However, searching on their site, none of the sets come up, but five other different exclusive sets do:

German site: https://www.smythstoys.com/de/de-de/toys/playmobil/playmobil-country/playmobil-70166-gro%c3%9fer-reitparcours/p/174364

So to buy from a UK store I go on a German website?  Or do they only sell in Germany/Europe from the website?

It looks as if in the UK they have taken over some of he old Toys R Us stores.
