I am sorry for entering the topic rather late, but I jsut wanted to say something.
I am a little perturbed at when this might be going...
I think this legs system is interesting and ok, but I would rather keep the old legs...
The sheriff legs seem ok to me though.

What's the matter, WoT?

Are you afraid that Playmobil might someday become like the old Fisher-Price Adventure People?

I guess we should all be very afraid that there is always that possibility ...  :(o):

Think positive,
Richard

Thanks for posting these photos. . . so, is it possible to remove the legs without breaking them in two?

Going back to replies about playmobil changing the way its klickies are moving....well, it would not be playmobil for me...And as Richard said, it would be trouble for children to make the figure stand...after long hours of play the pins would be very loose... Totaly difficult for a collectror to find a smooth and tight joint klicky....
On the other hand, this one piece leg is actually a devised one for the standards legs...just thinking of a klicky without its pants... :o :o :o  ;D ;D ;D

Actually, Martin, the 1970s sheriff did have "moving ankles" ...  ;D

Please see attachments for more "articulated" views.

The sheriff I had in the 70s didn't have moving ankles. What set was he in?

RETURN IT FOR A FULL REFUND, MARTIN ... ...

Kidding aside, the folks a Playpeople (Louis Marx) spent a lot of time creating that "kickin' klicky" sheriff prototype. Interesting that they made articulated legs and ankles, but did nothing with the wrists or hands ... Which in my humble opinion, was a much more important upgrade!

All the best,
Richard
