I didn't think Playmobil was this dark. It actually has a full line of gladiators... are there also lions and christians?


Playmobil fascinates me. It is perhaps the most German children's toy imaginable.

Here's a toy Martin Luther:

I was following the links through Amazon.

Quite the collection, especially some of the famous artworks recreations.

Not as charming as the Hans Christian Andersen Ugly Duckling LEGO exclusive from the Copenhagen store but that's just me.

Playmobil is amazing in the sheer scope it encompasses. From historical to fantasy to medieval to sci fi there's literally EVERYTHING in there. I wish they could get the license to do Marvel and DC sets, I'd love to have those characters finally in a shared scale that doesn't involve expensive snap together bricks I don't give a gak about.

For 4-6th WFB, 2-5th 40k, and similar timeframe gaming

Looking for dice from the new AOS boxed set and Dark Imperium on the cheap. Let me know if you can help.

I dunno, never really like Playmobile, it had the abstraction of Legos but without the custom ability. Might just be an acquired taste if you didn't grow up with them.

Playmobil excels in quality for cost - the toys are just really beautifully made - even from simple plastics. They're robust and long-lasting. Had plenty growing up, and have a bunch stashed for the kids later in life.

I played many a WW2 battle as a kid - using large beautiful european houses and castles from Playmobil, etc.

I preferred Lego growing up, but me and my brother had plenty of both, and thanks to it's longevity all of it is now being played with by my Niece who is carrying on expanding them both

My favoured revision aid through GCSEs and A levels.

45 minutes head in book, 15 minutes trying to use as much of my Space LEGO bits as I could to make a massive cruiser before it collapsed under its own weight.

In my neighborhood the goal was to make a ship that could withstand reentry, by which I mean tossing it off a flight of stairs.

I eventually got it to work.

While we're on the topic of Playmobil...their pirate ships which come in/out of production often (frequently with changed sails or crew) are superb robust bases for 28-32mm style ships. They're dirt cheap, and really solid.

In fact, I just remembered I have one of these damn Playmobils ships sitting in a box somewhere...maybe a hobby project!

Glorious!

Apparently the robots (which I didn't buy) can actually fit inside and drive the skulls.

Adventure Force 40 and 50 count tubs of figures have surprisingly good terrain included. The farm set has two amazing trees, and after a search I found a safari set that has three of those trees along with a ton of molded plastic rocks. All for about $6 to $15 depending on the piece count.
