Who makes these stupid decisions?

Because then people would.. BUY THEM. The HORROR. Give them.. MONEY. Yuck. Especially foreign money.. you how they avoid foreign currency, especially... (and yes, foreign euros are also foreign currency, apparently).

I mentioned it before, it seems Playmobil has found a way to let us buy complete sets again. Don't get me wrong, I still buy complete sets, but like all of us, sometimes we just want useful parts. In a way I am lucky that I live close to Germany and I can wait until the expensive licensed sets are discounted. I'm sure that all Movie sets will be -50% in Galeria Kaufhof within 1 year.

On the other hand, I want to add something, once I ordered one of the horses of the Spirit series and according to the reply of Playmobil it is Dreamworks that decided which part can be sold separately or not.

Remember the Roncalli series, every part was available for separate orders, I ordered many parts. So, if we are lucky Studio 100 gives permission to Playmobil to sell everything separately of the Heidi series. We'll have to wait to find out!

It´s a catastrophe for people who customize a lot (like me). I´m not going to buy a set of 20, 30 or more euros to get 1 (!!!) small accessory like a hat, a moneybag or a shoulderbelt with a worth of 50 cents.

Also, like I mentioned in another thread, the vast amount of slight differences of specific colours make customising (recent) figures nowadays really complicated. Momentarily there are f.e. 4 variations of darkred (torsos, arms, legs, longcoats, etc) which do not exactly match with one another. It looks okay in evening-light but in daylight it just doesn´t look right when you assemble a klicky out of parts with colours that aren´t a true match. I think they do this on purpose as well, to make customizing more difficult.

I don't know much about Heidi (I always thought she was blonde) but I must say I really like the clean classic look of these sets. No goofy faces either, just good traditional three-mark ones. The first licensed sets I actually kind of like!  :skull:

Thanks for the large, detailed pics.
Cool figures and some nice accessories.
The buildings however...

It's a real shame the father has no printed torso, so it's not only the "too small apron"! Would have been nice to make a customised fat guy! Although the legs are very useful!

Yeah, a simple print around the neck would have made all the difference.
