Greetings from Flanders
« on: August 15, 2009, 22:46:19 »
Howdy everyone,

I'm a 33 year old playmofan from Flanders (Belgium), currently living in the beautiful city of Ghent. I loved playmobil as a child and now that my 4 year old son is starting his very own playmobil collection he rekindled my old love as well.

My interests are really all the historical themes but currently concentrating on the pirate theme, as my son really enjoys that one as well.

I hope to learn some customising tips and tricks from this wonderfull community (just learned how to take apart a clicky with the Hans method, dented my desk in the process ;) ) and to keep enjoying the amazing pictures produced by everyone!

I'm attaching my first picture on this forum, my first playmobil pirate meets the last addition to the collection. The old geezer told the kid to get a haircut  :lol:

Hi Hobbes and welcome  :wave: from Cheshire, England.
Nice to see another new member. I'm sure you'll get plenty of help here I've picked up a few hints myself - try the rubber band method for taking the clickys apart. I've found that a lot easier.
I look forward to seeing some more of your Pirates I like to collect those as well.

All the best Emma.

Delightful picture, Hobbes,
THANKS for sharing!

I'm 33 too, only, no kids yet, and I found out playmobil again last year, through the internet (by then, they didn't sell in toystores in my country (Brasil)), and what got me into it definitely again, inspiring me to buy (once I had none of the old ones ...) was Collectobil.com and JustforKl!cks.com. I needed to take pictures! ;D

So, welcome! I hope you enjoy this forum as much as I do. It's been about a year (a little more) that I'm here, and it's possibly (yea', no doubt about that!) my favourite place all around in the internet.

Enjoy!

Gus

Welcome from North Yorkshire in the UK.   :wave:  Although I'm into fire and rescue I still think the pirates is great theme so I look forward to seeing your collection in action.  Like Gustavo, I like your first picture - that hairstyle certainly isn't going down well!

Welcome Hobbes,

your pic would make a great avatar picture!

Pirates are almost infinitely customisable because no two pirates should be identical, so you've got plenty of options!

cheers,  Martin
