Here is my list of 1774 sets with building plans currently available on playmobil.com This is already out of date as new plans are being added all the time, but if it's useful to anyone, here it is! All sets with building instructions (pdf)

If they are useful, here are PlaymoDB set lists (too many sets for one list, so I have split it according to the first digit of the set number)

sets beginning 3
sets beginning 4
sets beginning 5
sets beginning 6
sets beginning 7 or 9

Here is a spreadsheet version (CSV): PC version CSV MAC version CSV

That's awesome, Graham - can you tell us how you did it?

Pure slog! I haven't got a fancy bit of software to 'scrape' data, but I did start with a list of the first 900 or so sets.
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

That is an impressive piece of work, Graham!  Thanks for sharing it with us.   :hatoff:

sorry tigana123;
look for 3996 & 3993 respectively,
maybe its my fault for recording the alternative numbers  :-[

but tigana123, did you find the others I listed above?

sorry everyone, hoping to be helpful, I might have created some anxiety....I manually compared GrahamB's long list and don't trust my tired eyes, if some of the numbers I pointed out are indeed online...should I continue to list more? (I'm continuing to compare with GrahamB's list whenever I have more time)

Yes, I can see 3996 and 3993 in the DE site. The others exist as well. I didn't compare the list that GrahamB provided, I was just checking if there are any PDFs that I have not included in my (own) list or missed.

Attached below is a list of available PDFs in the DE site as of today (10 Oct 2014). I didn't do any editing, just paste it as it comes after copying form the site...
