Just looked at the PCC and the names are fairly generic and some are used in multiple series.  But I guess they are the closest thing to "official" names. 

Also I don't think they have the first two series - maybe facebook would have them as suggested earlier.

I just put togther the list for Series 3 - they are in the order on the leaflet.

Series 3 (5243/5244)

Men:
1.  Knight
2.  Asian Fighter
3.  Royal Guard
4.  Race Driver
5.  Pirate
6.  Astronaut
7.  Jamaican
8.  Singer
9.  Alien
10.  Dwarf
11.  Ice Hockey Player
12.  Scarecrow

Women:
1.  Princess
2.  Surfer
3.  Indian Princess
4.  Pastry Cook
5.  Secret Agent
6.  Equestrian
7.  Crazy Singer
8.  Ice Skater
9.  Miss Liberty
10.  Flamenco Dancer
11.  Pregnant Woman
12.  Bride

Personally I think they could be approved upon.

Miss Liberty. :lol:

We could probably do better. At the very least, we would have to call them "series 3 knight" etc., because some if them are in practically every series.

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.

Well, series 6 is out in the open now too. :)

And also, we could get names from looking at the image files, especially on this site (which is awesome!):
http://download.playmobil.com/FunAction/Microsites/FIGURES_5/DE/index.php

Only up to series 5 is there though, but from image files alone I get (e after Umlauted vowels due to the web address, haha):

Series 1:

German -> My translation

Boxer -> Boxer
Burgfraeulein -> Castle Maiden
Drachenritter -> Dragon Knight
Eisprinzessin -> Ice Princess
Football -> Footballer
Fee -> Fairy
Gevatter -> The Grim Reaper
Hexe -> Witch
Gitarrist -> Guitarist
Saengerin -> Female Singer
Henker -> Executioner
Nixe -> Mermaid
Mumie -> Mummy
Prinzessin -> Princess
Pizzabaecker -> Pizza Baker
Raeuberin -> Female Robber
Ritter -> Knight
Reiterin -> Female Rider (implied Horse Rider)
Sportskanone -> Sports Champion
Skaterin -> Female Skater
Uncle Sam -> Uncle Sam
Skifahrerin -> Female Skier
Zorro -> Zorro
Steinzeitmama -> Stone Age Mother

After series 1, the images are just listed as jungsX and maedchenX for the boys and girls images, respectively. We could come up with some names easily enough though based on all the discussion we’ve been having over the years or from other “official” images.

Here’s my list though, just from what I remember us talking about. Feel free to edit it however you want. I also have a picture below that I’ve been using to keep track of my own collection. Sorry for the blurred out part. :D I named them left to right, top to bottom, as shown in the picture.

Thanks! Putting them all in one page instead of having to search individually as there's so many confusing series

This is fantastic!

One reason I wanted a list is that I have a heap of multiples I will probably end up listing on ebay (or swap when I get my post count up) and I wanted the most likely search term for each figure. But this is also just heaps of fun too.

Oh and guess who laminated all their packets inserts yesterday?  :-[

Sure thing. I'm glad you guys find it useful.

And nice! Those inserts have good images of the figures, though they are a bit small. I have the picture above in slightly higher resolution but certainly not the best that could be found if we tried to make a better source of Fi?ures information. Images from the website of individual figures would probably be best for that.

We really need that separate sub-forum.  ;)

Is there a way of collecting photos files into a common place? Maybe a common photobucket account?

As far as the forum goes, you can attach files to a post, but there is a size limit of 100KB for each file.

Mimmablue, what a fantastic idea to laminate them! I may have to do that now.

Pynedor, wow. Thanks for doing all that work, and all the descriptions sound perfect. Except one thing :-[... the Emergency worker/ambulance driver. Paramedics HATE being called ambulance drivers, so maybe we can change it to paramedic. I loved the description "pumpkinhead." :lol:
