How to Revive Maisie & Fred's Excellent Adventure
« on: June 26, 2012, 18:55:24 »
After a recent thread that is very similar to this one, http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=2130.0 and Elaine's comment on it, the mods thought of making this topic a sticky one, so that everyone can see it and find it easily. Here's the topic I mentioned:
http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=11330.msg210743#msg210743

We were thinking of whoever is interested to revive this adventure with their own contribution.  :)

As some people might find it difficult to get hold of Maisie and Fred now, how about suggesting two other klickies - perhaps Maisie and Fred's children/grandchildren who could send their adventures back to Maisie and Fred? 
Meanwhile anyone who has Maisie and Fred could still use them. 
That way, it wouldn't exclude anyone who doesn't have them.

A very good idea Elaine! Bonniebeth had the same thing in mind.

That's a very good idea.  The travels of Mis Fit reminded me of the Miss Cis story that was on Playmoboard where a figure was shipped round from member to member.

Yes, Elaine, I had this same idea! I think we should select a special to be Maisie and Fred's son or daughter and continue their legacy. That way anyone who doesn't have the right klicky can easily acquire it without a lot of expense. I think having just one klicky might make it easier/cheaper, but then having a couple would make it more interesting, perhaps....

great fun project!!!  :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love:

So... it is not the actual same clicky going around the world, I mean really travelling by post, but a "common-agreed-on-clicky" photographed in different locations?? right?

Yes, that's right, from what I understand. That's why it might be better to choose one or two that everyone can get their hands on easily. I suggest a special that is new to the export market, so it will certainly be available to everyone for a while, perhaps this one: http://store.playmobilusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-US-Site/en_US/Product-Show?pid=4754&cgid=Special  :lol: I think he's got a lot of character, and could easily be Fred and Maisie's grandson. I can see  him having an interesting perspective, looking for places to skateboard all over the world. ;)

A tamer alternative would be: http://store.playmobilusa.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-US-Site/en_US/Product-Show?pid=4744&cgid=Special I really like her. :love:

If she were available worldwide, I'd say the flight attendant was perfect. http://www.playmobil.de/on/demandware.store/Sites-DE-Site/de_DE/Product-Show?pid=4761&cgid=Special

Bonnie, why not separate the posts about the new "travelling" klickies into a topic of it's own; that may attract more interest and ideas as this is an old topic.

I was thinking the same thing, we're messing up the continuity of this thread by discussing this. I'll split it.

what about bikini girl or the cheer leader as the grandaughter?
I could be fun to use the "bomshell" - "dumb-teenage- blonde" stereotypes  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Other than that the flight attendant I think it is a great idea.  :)
