Nun Geobra Brandstatter, 2004

Nun
Playmobil Set 4631 Review Capsule
One of hundreds of "Specials," this Playmobil Nun is a cheap and nifty figure that's sure to delight fans of Playmobil and spending one's money ironically. Roughly $2-$5 at most Playmobil retailers.

Introduction

The Nun is a slightly older woman decked out to look like the old timey notion of a Nun, which may or may not hold true today according to what TV tells me.

Originally sold in 2004, this figure is currently still available at most Playmobil retaillers. It is currently not available at places like Target or Toys "R" Us in the USA.

Figure

The basic fundamental design of a Playmobil figure lends itself to a variety of other designs with a little paint, a little imagination, and a few new parts. The Nun succeeds mostly due to paint and new parts.

There's not a lot too her, and that's why she works. She uses existing components, for the most part, and a little paint here and there makes her into the perfect nun. There's not much you can do with the actual design combined with Playmobil aesthetics, so it's pretty easy to nail-- and as you can see here, they got it.

Accessories

She has a book, and some clothing bits.

She fits together quite well and like most Specials, she has no loose pieces. This is a good thing, as it makes it just that much harder to lose a part.

Packaging

Set 4631 comes in a box typical for the "Specials" range. The back shows the box' contents, and the front reveals her to be... somewhere. What is that, a Roman temple?

Fin

It's a nun-- while it's not a hobo, the two go well together.

Playmobil is a great toy line with an endless parade of amusing, quirky characters from the real world. As such, your desire to buy this will probably stem completely from the amusement you will gain from adding a figure like this to your collection. We believe it would make a great gift-- especially as it's a new release and cheap-- and we think it's wonderful. Snag it if you like such things, it's a quality piece at a low price.
