Well, I got the two civil war generals, and although they're pretty cool in and of themselves, they have these rifles, and you can't do anything with them. They hold them by the middle by their sides as if it were a purse or something.

I also don't like the new penguins or horses or many of the new animals. I think they're making them more realistic, which to me looks silly next to a klicky, which is rather unrealistic.

And for themes, although I was very excited about both top agents and future planet coming out, they're not cool really when I saw them, and they lack smaller, affordable sets, so I don't have any.

I agree with you regarding too much realism in the new animals, but also in buildings etc. For me, the classic klicky is pure design genius - it's up there with the Egg chair, the Swan chair and anything by Eames, and I'm not exagerating when I say that. They're cult things, from a design point of view. Too much realism is taking away from the cool design. It panders to modern, vulgar tastes. It's a bit like putting a cup holder on a Swan chair, I think.  ::) But if it's what people want ...

I also agree re the top agents and future planets. They're not very cool. Maybe with the top agents they could've made up some cooler characters - I don't know, a femme fatale or something - but this mad scientist lark: bleh. Then again, many people liked it on this forum. As they used to say in the old days: there's no accounting for tastes  :P :P :P :)

the newest pony ranch and farms - those themes in the 90's and 80's rocked, but the current animal design and colors they use are just ugly to me
Enjoy the elegance and fun of 1900 with The Victorians photo story! :gent: ;D :sherlock:

The current pony farm building is quite beautifull though.

I must admit that I like the new style animals - they look great.

I think the new animals still retain the playmobil cuteness. :love: But yes, I wouldn't want them to be overly realistic like schleich or something, it would be weird with PM.

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

That's a problem they had with the 2nd sheep - they were CUTE, but not very playmolike.. These new ones seem to be more playmoadequate.

Old style sheep still look much funnier to me than the newer ones. I like the old ones more.  :)
