Excellent review, Andi! I especially like the picture of the mounted warrior with the trees in the background  :)9! BTW, has there been many prior sets produced in the CZECH REPUBLIC  ????
  Forget about all of the other stuff,....all we need is the reintroduction of the 3526 Fire Engine!

The orange color are a little strange !  :lol:

I wondered about that, but a quick Google search showed that some historians believe the Mongolians introduced orange dye to China, the source of the dye being Saffron flowers, so it is quite possible that Mongolians used Saffron to dye their clothing orange.

Orange boots? One might expect black or brown, but Playmo love their highly colored footwear. Yet here again, maybe Playmobil did their research:


Mongolian Boots

It could be that they just happened to choose orange becaused they had large stock of orange plastic pellets, but whether by design or happy accident, it seems orange is a viable color for both Mongolian fabric and leather!

I quite like this guy, orange and all. It is time for Playmobil to introduce more asian themes in it's repetoire, and with the introduction of Ancient Egypt and Rome, I wonder if we will see Ancient Chinese or Japanese Playmobil.  Joy! ;D I really think it would be great to have asian warriors, temples, and landscapes.  Im a fan of wuxia films, and have wondered whether PM would warm up to the idea.  Here's hoping.

Beleive me PlaymoMac... Lots of people are with you on that one.
(Myself included! :) )
I quite like the look of this Mongolian myself.
If Playmobil were ever to produce Chinese men then there could be quite a few interesting battles with these new Mongolians... ;D
Maybe this is a sign...  :prays:
Or maybe just another wierd one-time Playmobil creation... :(
Steck is BACK! <:>

Thanks for the pictures and the review, Customizer!

Great research, Martin!  I did not know that.  I guess we should give Playmobil the benefit of the doubt that they did their homework.

My guess is that the egg itself is made in the Czech Republic while the other pieces are Maltese and shipped to the Czech Republic where the set is assembled.
