US 2010 Release Dates: School, Africa

Good news, everyone! Playmobil's web site updated with release dates for two major themes this year. The Africa Sets should start showing up in April, while the School theme will be out around August.

Of course, these could show up at a mass market outlet earlier but nobody knows just yet. The pricing was also announced, with most sets being a little pricey side. The school, for example, is $169.99. The ostriches (pictured) will be only a mere $7.99, though, so this line is going to be all over the place in 2010.

US 2009/Germany 2008 Diver Sets Out in USA?

A number of the still-not-released-in-Germany diver sets are on the US Toys "R" Us Web site and are being listed for sale, and in stock too. What's more, one of the sets listed has yet to appear in any German, American, or other catalog. Of note in this new set are some newly colored rockies, a small white seal (previously released in grey), and a nifty hat on the trainer. A new yellow submarine, presumably one we could all live in, is also shown as well as the 4500 Shark Cage Diver.

As of yet we haven't seen any of these in the wilds of retail.
