Of course I want to get a ship, but I don't want to open another can of worms :0. I'm probably getting into the firemen theme, which I DEFINITIVELY wasn't supposed to even look at, so at this stage I need another theme as much as I need another hole in my head.
Cheers!

I tried to stick to my one theme for a long time, but I can't hold out any longer!

No pirate ship ever had skull & bones on the sail.

My main problem with it is that I want to convert it to a navy ship...
So no skull and crossbones there. ;)
Steck is BACK! <:>

well primuspilus, if you take a look at the fantastic (just kidding) thread "all the pirate ships playmobil ever made" - http://www.playmofriends.com/forum/index.php?topic=4639.0 - you will understand the "skull" problem.  :hmm:

you have a skull in the 5775 schooner, in the 3619/3133 schooner, in the 3174/5733/3900/7581 schooner, in the 5869 schooner, in the 5810 schooner, in the 5778 ship, in the 5780 raft, in the 4331 mini-set and now in the 5135 ship.
if you put them all together you get a tremendous amount of "skulls".
this undermines a bit their individuality as different sets - in a semiotics view - diminishing what makes them unique.  8}

the 3940 has 2 different square sails on both masts.
maybe this is not the case with the 5135 and all we have to do is to get a spare "skull-less" sail to replace the "skull" one.  ???

having sais all this, i must say i like this new ship.  :love:
i guess my "love" will be a little less when i get it and "feel" the fake cannons, and the absense of string "sheets".
until then i am rather happy with the return of "normal" colors
  :)

I'm very pleased that Playmobil is coming out with a new version of their large ship.  I don't like the pirate sail, but that can be easily changed, and I'm hoping the fake cannon can be easily changed too.  Those things aside, I prefer the older version of this ship due to the colors, although seeing this new one in person may change my mind. :arrr:
