Playmobil 2010 and 2011 Revealed!

Fan forum has revealed a number of new sets for release in Germany in 2010 and worldwide in 2011, plus the new 2010 specials! Wow! Check out this thread (it's auf Deutsch, English speakers) for some images and links to the new sets. I pulled a couple of links for your perusal:

Family House and Recreation Sets
Includes an adult in a speedo, a woman in a bikini, a new pool, pool toys, a new camper, a new house, and a lot of other sets you may have never seen before.

New Zoo
Meerkats, Lions, Elephants, and Koalas! Some are new, some are old, but it's a good mix of critters.

Larger, better pictures-- including those of a new Spaceman and Mongolian Warrior-- can be found in the thread, so pop in, log in as needed, and check them all out!

Playmobil Divers Sale: 20% Off at Toys "R" Us

Toys "R" Us stores in the USA-- apparently, one of the few places where something is going on with Playmobil these days-- have the Divers range for 20% off. You can get the whale set for $15.99, the Nautical Expedition Boat for $43.99, and others for less than you deserve to pay for them. Lucky you!

As we've picked up the entire range, we give them all high marks. (Particularly the SCUBA set with the swordfish and the whale.)

Toys "R" Us Sale This Week

It seems we have a consistent source of goings-on in American Playmobil collecting, don't we?

This week (through Saturday closing), Toys "R" Us stores are selling Playmobil Castle/Knights and Pirates/Ghost Pirates for buy-one-get-one-half-price. As many new sets were recently released, this may be a great opportunity to get some what skeletons and derelict ships. Happy hunting!
