A 5817 anomoly
« on: July 03, 2010, 07:47:07 »
Hey Playmofriends,  :wave:

The other day I was in a toyshop and came across a blister famous to many of you:



I needed to do a take-back, but I guess many of the sharp eyed amongst you have already spotted it. Here is a closeup picture, sorry for the quality.



As you can see the Soldier Klicky is not perfect his breastplate is not complete and there are some huge chunks of plastic missing around his waste area.

I was extremely happy with my find am proud to have it as part of my collection.

So I was wondering, does this happen often and is this worth something to collectors? Maybe even more so because it is still OVP?

rather unique considering playmobil's QC ( Quality Control ) is pretty good to say the least .....

That is odd. I thought klickys were assembled by hand, were they not? One would notice such a faulty part immediately, wouldn't one?

If they were assembled by hand Ali Baba , the would cost 4-5 times more to say the least.......

Oh right. I saw a pic once of a tour of the Malta factory. There was someone at a workstation, with all kinds of little racks and boxes assembling klickys by hand. That's why I thought it was done by hand.

Of course I can't find the picture now.  :(
