Playmobil 2016 Toy Fair Pirate Figure The 2016 Toy Fair Pirate Figure is a pirate from the 6679 Pirate Treasure Island set. I don't have the big set, so I'll just look at this here figure because we've got space to fill and I really need to make a better record of this stuff. In 2016 we saw more of a movement toward what may well be Playmobil's future in licensing. NHL sets started to appear, and we got announcements of Ghostbusters and How to Train Your Dragon - both curious choices which raise more questions than answers about the German toymaker's intentions toward international markets and what's popular with kids in Germany these days. Pirates have been a staple of their toy business for years, being a part of pop culture history and the public domain. Kids love pirates.

These promotional sets come bagged in little cardboard envelope boxes since the dawn of man, with minor changes here and there. Everything is in a single bag with warnings printed all over. The figure itself is assembled, but you need to accessorize it with the hat, bandolier, sword, and all that stuff. It should take you about 30 seconds to do. If you can't do this, they take the figure back from you. It's true. It's science.

Playmobil 2016 Toy Fair Pirate Figure

Playmobil 2016 Toy Fair Pirate FigureThe figure features torn sleeves on his jacket plus a white undershirt. And an eye patch, and a hat with stuff hanging off the side, a big printed map, a bigger black sword, and fancy boots. One of the few disappointments I have with Playmobil is the abundance of captain-like figures - everybody looks like they're in charge. Where are the grunts? This is a fancy lad, with striped pants and an expertly painted coat. There's a necklace printed on the chest, plus some nice designs to represent the shirt and even more bandoliers. As always, all parts and pieces fit perfectly - I have never experienced a fit issue with a Playmobil toy, and they've been doing these things for over four decades. The figure can stand and sit with little difficulty, although the removable bandolier may be problematic for sitting.

The figure is pretty typical for a modern release - lots of printed detail, a bit of sculpted detail, but there's little to set it apart from the dozens of other pirates you've no doubt collected by now courtesy of clearances, gifts, or shoplifting.

You have absolutely no reason to track down this promotional figure - unless you just want the box. The figure itself can be had as part of a large set with lots of cool stuff in it, and as far as I can tell this release has no distinctive bits or pieces over which to concern yourself. It does look cool - but there are much cheaper ways to pick it up.
