Never seen this swan doormat before!

Well, then you've never seen a complete 3654 because it indeed comes with one. I have always wondered what it is supposed to be - your "doormat" is probably right. Funny part.

Well I looked at a pic of the box back of the set and didn't see it...so either there are different editions of the set, or....I'M BLIND  8-)  :skull: :confetti:

Also not seeing it on playmodb's inventory: https://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showinv.pl?setnum=3654

It would be weird if it were a doormat because you wouldn't think knights would want to step on their own heraldry, would you?  ??? :knight:

All interesting observations and questions, to which I have no answers. I have never opened a 3654 in my life but have bought a few used sets, where the "doormat" is regularly included.

I have 60 swan knights but only 4 of these magnificent tents . God I remember buying my first one in TOYS R US in Cardiff back in 1995....

This is not a door mat ... knights wouldnt have their insignia stepped on !!!  its a blanket for the bed  ;)

More of a Swan Dormant, then.

This discussion reminded me of this one a while ago, a green bucket found by Ismene in a MISB Victorian set 5506. It doesn't appear on the box picture or the PlaymoDB inventory.

I've never seen that swan doormat before either, Macruran, and I live on eBay!
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)

Squire: "Sir Swan, a courrier(-service) brought the bloody head of the Dark Knight."
Sir Swan: "Okay, just put it on the bed and donīt forget to wipe your feet on your way out."


Thanks for the info about the blanket/doormat, I too dinīt know about it  :)

 :wave: Dear Macruran, I hope I haven't stepped on your toes... but... yes, I was sorely tempted & didn't resist. The Swan Dormant is now mine. Much thanks for the info.  8-)
