A scimitar would look more accurate, I think. They had these long thin curved swords. A katana is way to far off. Never seen a playmo scimitar in silver/metal though.

About the scabbard, I think this piece is unique to this special. Should have put that in the review.

Another good informative review, thanks Ali!

The red/yellow colors are quire accurate to the dyes available to the Mongols, so I don't mind the colors being the same as the 4926 Easter Egg Mongol. Indeed I haven't had the opportunity to get my hands on 4926 yet, it hasn't been released where I live and I'm not paying triple through eBay, but I'll be getting half a dozen of each when I can, and customising some. I hate paying for an egg I don't want anyway, I'd rather have the figure without it.

The katana is indeed a strange choice, I'd have gone with a scimitar, though the Mongols did use different styles of swords, some with just a small curve at the end not dissimilar to the Playmobil katana shape.

I hope that when the full Playmobil Club is up and running we can address questions about these design "flaws" to Playmobil and have reasoned explanations.

Here is the 4926 Mongol! Just to compare!!! No catana here... and it might not fit, but I would prefer the special's shield to be hold by this one...

 Hey, that is the easter egg mongol. Without his horse. How much did you pay for it?

@ Martin,

Thanks. I don't like paying for the egg as well, but it was easter and I still had some pocket money.

The pumpkins for the Halloween sets are very expensive. A regular special kosts about 2-2,5 euro here. The dracula with pumpkin kosts 5 euro (DS price). So 2,5 - 3 euro's for the pumpkin alone!!!

5 euro for the pumpkin sets is already very good....we need to pay 9 Euro for it :hmm:

I think owning one egg is okay, and now the more playmobil we buy, the more useless eggs are taking up my place. :(

I think I got him for 3 euros off an ebay seller..the horse was sold seperately and at the moment I just wanted the klicky...Maybe next year they will bring these easter eggs here in greece! I will get a few more!!!

I got many easter eggs red knights ... the eggs are indeed a frastration...had to throw away 2 of them...

Mongols is an interesting notion. I thing these klickies would fit nicely as Attila the Hun's  army .....
