  i love sinterklaas on the horse with his "long" red cloak.




IMHO, this may be one of the most beautiful sets ever produced by Playmobil ...



 ... thank you playmoed for sending me the package.




Playmoed?

Kaethe, did "MIB Eddy" know that you were actually going to take Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet "out of the box" ? (just kidding) ...  ;D

Kaethe, thank you for the wonderful photos of this great set !!!

All the best.
Richard

oh my goodness, i had no idea.  he actually sent me two sets, as the shipping would be the same and when i told him that i was going to open one set and throw away the box, we decided not to even ship the second box.

They are, some shops already have them. I ordered mine from Collishop (Colruyt) which is now connected with the Dreamland stores. It's supposedly being delivered within 6 weeks  :-\ but I did get a discount so I'm fine with it. (I originally wanted to wait til Sinterklaas to buy this set  ;D )

I am intrigued though that Playmobil went with a completely Dutch name. Even on the German website it's written in Dutch.  :lol:

Mah. I went to every Bart Smit in town (and the one in Brugge) and to a couple of Blokkers but still didn't see it anywhere - distribution seems to be bad here  ::)

However I did manage to find (and buy) the last Roman special from a Blokker store - they haven't been available in Malta for two years at the very least!

I share in your excitement, Kaethe.  I think he looks great . . . love anything to do with Christmas.
 :love:

Sorry to be nitpicking (I am a great fan and practitioner of Sinterklaas), but Sinterklaas has nothing to do with Christmas. The closeness of both celebrations is only a coincidence, although Santaclaus is hugely inspired by Sinterklaas.

It is an awesome set and I will surely get one or more, as soon as I am back from my vacation. (Tomorrow we will enter Switserland, so more chances to buy playmo!!!)

Thanks for posting these pics!!!!!!
