Orchestra and Marching Band
« on: November 22, 2019, 09:56:29 »
Okay so since Playmobil has gotten into the Composers scene (Mozart and Bach) I feel like they need to create an orchestra set.  They already have several of the components needed.  And then while they are at it, make a marching band (bonus if they have a kids sized one)

I want to see  French horns, and real flutes, an Oboe, the different drums.

Then of course drums (including quad sets, the snare drums, and a beautiful bass drum) for the marching band, trombones, and Tubas (the big tubas, Sousaphone Tubas- not the one they’ve already done, but we will need more of them).  And let’s not forget the snazzy uniforms!  I can see myself buying at least 2 or 3 of these sets. And the Victorian lovers would be in heaven. So would the Circus lovers...  it’s a slam dunk
I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

Absolutely! They certainly have enough instrument models to do so.

I think that's a great idea! Some of the figures might need bent arms in order to hold their instruments in a realistic playing position- French Horn and Flute especially.
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)

Kind of surprising they hadn't already done more musician sets years ago.

We´re getting the new bagpiper (Series 18) in 2nd half 2020, just in time for the Third Scottish Independence War in 2021 ;D

If they didn't want to do them as stand alone sets they could just hold a slot in each Figures series for a figure with a band uniform and an instrument. You would collect the band over time. Would love to see them do a Bavarian brass band in lederhosen as well.
