Somebody ever saw this, Sbego Baellar?



You just have to buy 72 of them at a time.

Shame they don't do a theme I'm interested in. >:D

I rather buy 72 different Playmobil items, even though if it might be second hand.

So they sell to stores? I think they would have a better time making things collectors want, not trying to cut in on geobra. Don't try to compete, try to compliment
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

Looks that way. I agree, but I think the business model is rip off a popular playmobil theme to make money.
Selling to the likes of us would require research on their part. Makes me wonder though what the actual set up costs of moulds are if a rip off merchant is prepared to make these things for sale.
Also wonder at the endless fantasy axes and helmets that geobra produce but wont produce more historically accurate ones that collectors as well as children could enjoy.
You lament the lack of diversity, I lament the lack of realism in the historic sets, especially the medieval(ish) themes. If playmobil was producing stuff like it is today (ignoring the direct service and special edition stuff) when I was a child I would not be a collector now.

Oh how I also dream of historical accuracy, fantasy theme is fine but if geobra would just leave them in the fantasy theme. Lately the damn weapons you speak of seem to find their way into the themes which are supposed to be based on reality.

I too would not collect if the basic principals were not based in the civility of reality wether it be in modern or historic. More historic peasants for our cities and less flashing lazer guns

Well, the "dragons/knights/whatever they call them" have kept the aliens supplied with odd weapons.. Yes, it is odd.

YES! Less blinky-winkies! More nicely colored klickys!

(sigh) Unfortunately, that's how every older toy company is like. Now, many kids just like the fantastical element of it, not caring at all whether it is realistic in the LEAST. Take Lego. They used to have quite realistic castles; now, these Nexo Knights are basically space knights fighting a jester and his furry little demons. Oh, and they have lasers.
