I haven't done that, yet. If it's still on display by the end of the week, I may do it then. I have a lot of non-Playmobil expenses right now (I'm disabled, so always a tight budget). BUT, the summer sidewalk sale begins this week at Deluxe, & there's always lots of Playmo for really at cheap prices. I may need to re-evaluate my economics.

If I thought it would survive the trip I'd give you the 63USD just for the whole thing and you just send me the cardboard display (i'd pay the shipping of course) and keep all the toys.

I'm sure it's a great shop, but the three testimonials on their website all contain the same basic grammatical error*, so maybe they need to get someone else to write them?

*I'm with Bill Bryson on thinking grammar is important!

Grammar is important, I try to visit mine at least fortnightly.

Here's a bad pic of the back of it. It seems to be somewhat collapsible. I'm sure I could get it packed up properly for you if you're seriously into getting it.

Those look great, they still haven't shown up here for me yet. Why does that lava guy have green hands, they would have been better in black.

I've been calling the winged thing "mothman." The girls case is waiting for me at Deluxe; I'm waiting for money. I think the knight & the German are nicely done, as is the cellist. I'm keeping multiples of 6 of the figures, & saving the leftovers for Christmas gifts.

This was a gift from Deluxe Toy & Hobby! (Just the display itself, not the clickies.)
