I actually do play with mine, as well as customize them. (My kids play with them more, but I still do.)
If I’m jealous, you did SOMETHING right. Keep it up. :D

The klickies you customise - do you try to buy another set of to keep in its 'original set' condition first?

I have customised all the new dragonland klickies..even removed that belt you, and I, hate so much! Idid the same with the previous red dragon knights, like the 3319.

But I do sometimes buy a box and leave it untouched...

The question is for everyone  :)

Because sometimes I have mixed feelings: should I keep one set in its original factory condition and buy another one to customise, or?

Ever since I started collecting the old knight sets from the 90s, I try to keep them as they originally came out, but the later sets - the ones I bought from the shops - I never bothered doing that. For eg all my blue Romans (specials) i swapped their gold helmet for a silver one) and so on. It's very expensive to buy two of each set ... if not more  ::)

My ... this is one expensive hobby isn't it?

Advice please, I make dioramas of some of my Playmobil to display on my exhibition layout and play with my trains when I take them to garden railway open day.
Also I do a small amount of customising of locos and coaches. Where do I vote?

you should answer what you do the MOST. Almost everyone would vote for all options!  0)
