Now I am almost waiting for a trickshot where it looks like the clicky lifts the entire garbage truck above his head.  ;)

Thanks for sharing.  Are the tires the same as the fire truck?

I got rid of the firetruck the same day so I do not have it to compare. The garbage truck tires are squishy rubber, very similar to Geobra's.
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

No, they're not the same as the firetruck. The fire truck has icky hard plastic tires. Like Ras said, the garbage truck (and also the school bus and ambulance) have regular rubber tires.

Ugh. Just the thought of purchasing let alone setting up that set makes me sick!

So the Chinese manufacturer is actually more careful and cares whether or not your toy gets damaged while being shipped.  Unlike Geobra, it seems at times.

This is when I was sure it was a Chinese made playmobil. Now for some reason the factories over there find it necessary to tie the objects to the box. Geobra has tied bundles of building parts together but they do not ever find it necessary to secure the entire vehicle to its packaging. Other parts are in two bags.

I always thought that they tied everything into the packages so that the the weird people who shop major China distribution warehouse stores (AKA Walmart) will not steal everything, like the old saying "you have to bolt everything down".  ;)
