"Medieval gentleman and mandolin"
« on: February 09, 2013, 00:42:07 »
Does anybody know where I can find this  ???

I think it's awesome,  I could definitely use one in my newly acquired 3666 ! Is it real Playmobil ? It look recent, but can't find it in the catalogue. Or maybe I'm looking at the wrong place ?

It's a custom.

The figure itself is from the special 6107 Albrecht Dürer figure that was given away at a museum in Nürnberg, Germany. I'm not sure if there was any other way to obtain the figure.

You're right, I knew I recognised the figure, but I thought "Viking".

I think it has also been available through the PCC or Fun Park.

It wasn't GIVEN away, you could buy it as a souvenir of the Albrecht Dürer exhibition there. :)

I don't think you can get any new ones right now, no. :-\

But in PCC Newsletter No. 1, it says the Albrecht Durer figure will be in the PCC Special Sale assortment.

I know, but that sale hasn't started yet, and we're not supposed to talk about it. :lol:
