4893 - Sinterklaas en Zwarte piet
« on: May 19, 2010, 07:21:26 »
Hey All,

I am unsure if this is the correct Thread for this but I thought this needed to be out here (If this is the wrong thread please let me know where to go, maybe this is old information then sorry for wasting the bandwith)

The Dutch have a gift giving opportunity in December different from Christmas (we have that too). It's the celebration of St Nicholas' birthday on the 5th of December (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas).

They have decided to make a special set for this (http://www.playmobil.de/on/demandware.store/Sites-NL-Site/nl_NL/Product-Detail?pid=4893&cgid=) and I was wondering if this will be available world wide. I quickly checked what results playmobil.de came up when typing the set number and it couldnt be found where as on.nl it takes you straight to the set.

I haven't gotten my hands on this yet so I can't do an official set review but thought that this existence of this set should be know.

If anyone is interested and can't find a way to buy them online or something let me know and I am sure we'll be able to find a solution once this is on the market.

-Gis

Wow - that is a beautiful set. :love:

I can see that Sinterklaas' hat is going to be very useful for customizers. It's the first time I've seen one shaped like that! 8-)

The longer style of jacket throws up many possibilities too.

Thanks for posting the news and pic! :)

Sylvia, you are definitely right about the possibilities of this jacket. But it has been out in at least one set before:
http://www.amazon.de/dp/B002G5U22S

There is a special pirate in this limited edition of the game and this pirate is already wearing santas jacket.
Or santa clause is wearing a pirates jacket?  ??? ::)

Nice set and good to know. I definitely need to get one! :)
Thanks for sharing!  :wave:

best,
socrates

Great new set! I may need to have someone acquire this set for me, if it does not become available here in the USA ;)! Thanks for the presentation, Gis!
