He made it!!!  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: This was just a swiveling entrance to the sarcophagus chamber.... although the flaw in its design is that it sticks a lot and that there is no exit at the back piece of the doorway...



The sarcophagus is the greatest piece of the set!! It opens and reveals a mummy, which you all know. It has the shape of Anubis's head and various hieroglyphics on it! And the amout of treasure is fine, not too much not too little, but for this set, I'd prefer if they were a lot!!!

Just to show you the stickers decorating the chamber...





...before the priest and guard slide the chamber wall open to arrest the robber... he was very noisy after all...

If three of the walls are removable, why not include the 4th wall ?
Still, you are right, that is an amazing set.

The responces I got for this from playmobil was ''that's why there's a DS''  ::)

Love your review. And thank you!! BTW, does the printing of your pharaoh get worn away easily? Mine does, and the lower stripes are missing. I am not complaining, as it looks more ancient ;)

Nope, dont have this kin of trouble...  ???

Thanks Heronimus!!

Cool, the walls are interchangeable then? In that case I would surely go after the 4th wall.
And I bet in a few years this will be a very sought-after set if it's never reissued.
Cheers!

Yeap, they are not cliped on. They are just sitting on the corners!

Mind you though, you'll need the trianlge side, the 8 pieces of the carved pharaoh, the smaller piece of wall that gomes off, the teal trigger, and the inside stickers!
