Puh, just right back from the Playmobil Convention in 2007.

This year I didn't take that much pics. Anyway, the German board has created some good threads at their forum where the pics from the different dioramas are grouped by dioramas. I'll post some of my pics the other days (in case I made it in a special view angle that isn't already depicted by the Playmobil-Portal photos).

Click on the pics in the following threads of Playmo-Portal to enlarge them.

Middle Ages
Pirates
1900s City (museum)
Small dioramas, this & that
Our world (Planes&Countries, by MacGyver and Brubil)
Western City
Skiing, Harbor, CityLife, Trains
Fairy Tails (Grimm)
Die Autostadt (= car city)
Ice & Fire World
Plantation
Agyptian Temple

Thanks for the links Jochen. Those layouts are simply amazing...  :wow:

I really like the custom fire sets Flori has made as well.

Many thanks indeed, Jochen, for the update and the photos.  It really is very good of you after what must have been a very busy weekend.

Needless to say, my favourites are flori's fire dioramas.  The idea and the customs and the attention to detail are excellent.

There's a nice advert for Playmofriends with the T-shirt in the nessie picture.

Thanks again, Jochen.

nice pictures, jochen...
I will add some of mine as well...
...as soon as I have harvested through the 211 pictures I took.  8}

WOB was truely amazing. I have never never ever seen so many
large and high quality dioramas in one place...  :wow:
On top of all, Brunos and Michaels Diorama definitely made me speechless.  :o
It looked like a decads project, but why then had you other things on display last year?  :hmm: ;) :wow:

..and, Jochen, nice to have you met in person, finally..   :)9
(there is no coffee-drinking emoticon..)

Sylvia! Great to see at least your avatar in Wolfsburg!
Hope to see you in person at another place someday...   ;)

best

The dioramas look wonderful! Thanks for the photos and links, Jochen. :)9

Showing the firefighters through the ages was a really novel idea. Particularly clever was the use of the coal pieces as charred rubble in the destroyed building. I have a big bag of those from the DS (because I didn't realise they came in such large quantities :lol:) and was wondering what they could be used for since I don't have the container ship. Now I know! ;D

Me too! ;)

Thanks for the Pics and links Little Jo.

 It's all good stuff great scenes a few bits I have seen before but it's nice to see them again.

My favourite this year has got to be the car plant, it's an unusall thing to make a custom of. I like to see new creations and those car transporters are amazing custom pieces.

I agree, Flori does an amazing job with his fire pieces.
