FAO Schwarz 150th Anniversary Playmobil Toy Soldier
« on: July 19, 2012, 21:37:27 »
Here are the pictures I promised. Box first...

The text on the back reads...

"I have made toys my life study... there is solid satisfaction in dealing with childhood playthings and in knowing of the joy one is sending out into the hearts of the little ones..." - Frederick August Otto Schwarz


My impressions... the box is fantastic it may look better than the figure itself... the color is burgundy and very FAO.

It could have been improved if they had made it a window box with a formed plastic tray for the figure to sit in assembled but we are really splitting hairs to find improvements for the box.
Someday, I will organize my stuff, I promise.

Reused parts, nothing spectacular but I do like the way it comes together, and the spiffy red stripe on the pants. It would have been nice if they had included a sword or a gun for the toy soldier as most toy soldiers do in fact have guns, but he is still pretty cool... and I am sure I can find him a gun or sword somewhere... now they need to make a rat king for him to save the ballerina from...  :lol:

Just going to point out to anyone buying these... the FAO.com website has them for $4.99 each, they are listed at $6.99 each on the TRU.com site, and coupons don't seem to work on them as the are special/limited figures.

A very nice figure indeed.  Thanks for reviewing it.   :wave:

yes I did not know of this either. I will be getting some now that I am back in town.

thanks for the news
