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.

New German Limited Edition Set: Family Van with Boat

While SUVs are going out of style in the USA as of late, in Germany, there's a new LE Playmobil set that's surprisingly cheap and probably gets good mileage too. 4144 Familyvan mit Bootsanhänger (easy for you to say) includes a set of parents, two kids, a motorboat, a van, a dog, a toy sailboat, and a whole mess of stuff.

At press time there is no known release date in the USA-- or rather, we don't know what it is. It's 19.99 Euro, which is pretty preposterous given how much stuff comes in the box. We'll let you know when or if it shows up in the States, but for now you're going to need to call in some favors to get this one, which is also showing up elsewhere in Europe.
