Hello from California!!
« on: March 25, 2021, 19:54:48 »
Hi everyone!!  :wave:

 I’m so excited to finally join playmofriends! Like many of you I grew up with these classic toys, mostly western and knights. It wasn’t until the mid 90’s, when I found myself in the little toy store from my childhood, strolling down the aisle of Lego and Playmobil when something caught my eye. The bounty hunter set from the then brand new western series. He was so neat that I just had to get him. The collection grew rather quickly after that. At the time, I was also interested in learning animation so naturally I combined the two and started making films. Thanks to Bart from Collectobil I was able to share my creations with the online community.

Cut to today, I have amassed quite a collection and thanks to quarantine, I have gotten back into animating again. I look forward to meeting you all and sharing my creations and having fun talking about playmobil!

Hey Joshua D from Scotland. Looking forward to seeing your ever growing collection. Are you still interested in western and knights sets like you were as a kid?
It doesn’t matter how big or small your Playmobil collection is, it’s what you do with it that matters.

Hi Ackie! Yes, my western collection is the biggest followed by medieval, City life, Pirates, Romans, Vikings
and Egyptians, cavemen and dinosaurs. Then there’s the specials  :lol:

  Oh, and the ancient Greeks have recently joined the party!   ;D

Welcome from me in Stroud in the UK!
I am pleased to say my town has just been voted the best place to live in the UK! Maybe not the best for Playmobil, though a toyshop which sells PM has opened here quite recently!

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)
