Thanks for the great review. I got a few of the bear hats and just want to note that they are a light grey and not white as they sometimes look in photos. I don't think I need this set but would like to get a few of the soldier figures I think, it's a nice one.

Thank you. And true - I expected those side things to be separate parts...

Thank you. The bear hats are nice - and off white, yes - but I do find them somewhat creepy, in a morbit sort of way... Stupid, I suppose. So, didn't buy more...

The ship's sail is GORGEOUS, the ship itself, like I said, and that is IMO, of course, is NOTHING viking-like. But we have plans. Didn't try it yet, but the idea is to use that beautiful sail in a viking ship... We have a couple, and it would look weird if they were all "twins", right?

As to the soldier klicky.. he's gorgeous, and AMAZING for parts too :)

Working on Berk's review. A long one (7 pages, I THINK). Deep breath. You WILL not believe THAT mess. Gah.  >:(

Mine did not have the blue bag, just the regular printed clear bags. I like this set, it is really pleasing to me for some reason. Don't know the show at all, but it's a fun set.

The set is beautiful..  I love the series, the first movie was ok... The second.. Meh. And the klickys are based on that second one  :-\

Still.. they look awesome! :)

Tahra,

I sent this off to my contact at Playmobil, I too have had brand new sets arrive with scuffing. Maybe they will be able to make some changes. All we can do is advise and wait and see.

Tahra,

Please do let me know if you get any feedback. If they are like the "top", unlikely. They were quite clear on that.

I am thinking on how to go about this. I mean, boxes are usually ridiculous, but this is outrageous! I can't believe it's just me. And note that we could probably fit another 3 dragons there, with the wings not attached.

Besides that, having to clean a brand new set...  It's a disgrace.  It HAS happened before, like you said, but this made the set unusable. NOT acceptable for a set bought new.

If stuff was properly bagged AND/OR in a proper box, this wouldn't happen (ok, if that moronic blue bag was included, it might, but damages would be quite limited).  It's an insult to us. Besides being wasteful and all that. Oh, and good luck finding a box in good condition. Not to mention the high chances of getting broken parts. The first pyramid had a broken part when I opened it. Brand new. Another stupid box, with the parts rattling about... :(

I LOVE playmobil. That is why this makes me so mad. And sad.
