And for what it's worth, my 2 cents on the names of some of the fi?ures:

Series 1 – Girls

Blue Bird Princess
Girl with Stereo/Boombox

Series 2 – Boys

Sliver Knight (I suggest adding a colour as well as a number?)
I have seen the Alp Man/Boy described as ‘Hansel’

Series 2 – Girls

Again, I have seen the girl referred to as ‘Gretal’

Series 3 – Boys

Red & Sliver Knight
Tattooed Pirate

Series 3 – Girls

Ethnic woman/Indian Woman

Series 4 – Girls

Lifesaver (this could be an Australian-only term)
Paramedic
I’ve seen the Camera Girl described as ‘Tourist with Camera’

Series 5 – Boys

Mongolian Archer or Golden Archer
Blue Ninja
Silver Blue Dragon Knight
Red Green Superhero

Series 5 – Girls

Veiled Princess
Pink Maiden
Ethnic Woman with Basket

All of the suggestions that you guys have sound good to me. All of the alternative names are nice additions. Especially your Equestrienne, Tiermann! :lol:

I'm not familiar with Animobil, but I assume we could put a link here to the final list so we can easily access it?

Animobil is Tiermann's website. It contains great resources for Playmobil animals and heraldries (amongst other cool things). It's awesome; I'd recommend checking it out.

Would you like me to host this at Animobil?
If so maybe it would be good to add actual photos of each with front, side and back shots? Should we include an exploded shot showing all the parts too?
I can put the pages together if someone else would care to supply images.

That's fine with me. I can give you all the stock images, but I don't have nearly close to all of the different figures (or a decent non-film camera). Depending on what you'd want to do, I don't see a problem with having the stock image, actual images from different angles, and an exploded parts view for each figure. The more, the better. :D

I think, for the names, we could maybe have a general name that we all mostly agree on for each figure and then a list of "alternative names" for each (if they each get a page or something on Animobil). Or, we could just have a list of names with no general or alternative differentiation.

Just as another option, I could create a thread with all of the full resolution images along with names and any other information for each figure. The only thing that can get tricky with that is editing it when new series become public. This could be as simple as adding more posts, but if people were to respond and cause discussion in the thread, it can get cluttered. I'm sure that a moderator could take care of that, but it would probably be easier if Tiermann set up a comprehensive database on Animobil. I don't think Sylvia would incorporate something like that here.

I do have all or most of the F?gures, I think, except possibly some from series 2. However, many of them have been taken apart, changed, or re-accessorized, and I'm not sure I could find all their parts.  :-\ I'd be willing to help out with pictures of some of them, though.

Maybe we start with just the stock images and set it all up, then delegate who has which figures to take the other photos?

I'm sure between all of use we will have the 120 figures covered.  ;D

OK, here you go.

Fi?ures Series Pages at Animobil/Shields

There's an image list on each series page, and each Fig has it's own page with some details about it. Just the stock pics so far, thanks Pynedor.

Awesome, Tiermann. That looks fantastic! It should be a cool reference for people. :)

And nice job adding the copyrights. :lol:
