Figures 12 Updated Plus New Multiplay Figures

The Figures 12 update is finally complete with detailed photos of all the figures in the series. In addition, I have added the two Multiplay figures that are the giveaways in Germany from this last year. They should be showing up as gifts in the export markets this next year. They are numbered 6566 for the Male set and 6567 for the Female.

Also in Figures news over at Klickywelt.de it looks like one of the Figures from series 13 has already leaked out – the Biplane Pilot. Looks great, those should be released in Germany in January or so. April for us in the US usually.

Next update will be animals with the recent acquisitions from Germany.

Small Update to Shields and Figures

Just a small update, the shield from the Figures 12 series for the Shields site, and the group photos for 12 on the Figures site. Individual Figures Series 12 photos are on the way but won’t make it until some time next month. Also coming will be some more animal photos since my most recent box arrived from Germany (Thanks Daniela and Natalie!)

Magazines Update

A few new animal variations have come out int he last few months, plus a couple missed from last year.

Thanks to Natalie for pointing out that the small clam shell in the Girls Magazine from issue 5/2016 is a different color from the two previous pink ones.

Also pointed out is that the brown pony foal in the Easter Egg is different from themagazine one. The magazine is dark brown mane and tail and the Egg is black.

New this year are a German Shepherd in the new mold style but solid black. He is from Magazine 5/2017

Form the Super 4 Magazine in late summer we have a new Velociraptor color – yellow

That’s it for new additions this update. Better photos of the last two to follow when they arrive here. I am working on a Figures update with the most recent series but it takes a while. It is in progress though.

Shields Update

The new shields from the Dwarf theme coming up this winter have been added.

Also added today was the photo for the Pirate Ship’s Wheel shield.

Also new this update, a Skull and Crossbones heraldry category, just the one entry so far. I also added a new Heraldry entry for Flame for shields showing fire.

That’s it for this little update. Thanks for reading – Tiermann

August Update

The new Horse Farm theme and Dragons licensed theme are both out this month.

From the horses there turns out to be two other new variations previously missed. Both from the biggest set the 6926 Horse Farm. The brown horse has a white blaze on the forehead, as does the colt. The horse is 30 67 0603 and the colt 30 67 0613

Here are photos of the three larger dragons from the Dragons theme.

Other new editions this time – the 123 bird from the Advent Calendar turns out to be dark blue and not black as previously listed.

The seashell hair ornament from the Girls Figures Series 5 in 2013 has now been added.

The Clamshell Box has turned up in Glow in the Dark white. Hopefully this is part of the current assortment at the Funpark? From a set? Thanks to Buecherwurm7 for this info.

Also noticed by Buecherwurm7 is paint variation on the tiger cubs. The first type tiger cub has two different paint styles. Shown as 1 here is what I believe to be the older style based on catalog photos. The newer style (2) is also used on the white tiger cub and the more recent style 2 tiger cub.

Questions about color versus plain white on the first style horse have come up recently so I have added more photos. The best way to quickly tell the color horse apart is by holding it up to the light. If the light shines through the mane then it is in the color plastic, if it doesn’t it is a regular white horse.

In the example here the color horse is the oldest style horse with the letter B on the rear and the larger date and no hole underneath. That is the case on all my color horses but may not be the case on all horses that came in color sets.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your summer – Tiermann

2017-2018 Catalog Out in Germany

The new catalog is out in Germany including releases through January. It is available on the Playmobil.de site, as are the larger photos of the sets in the regular shopping categories.

I have only found three new animals this time. If you notice anything I may have missed please let me know.

In the new Dwarf theme there are two color versions of a new draft pony

In the Fairy Play Mat set there is a frog that looks to be a darker blue than previously seen.

That’s it for new animals, but the Dwarf theme has a bunch of new shields in it.

None of this is up on Animobil yet, I wanted to get the news out first and will add these plus any new part numbers that come from the newly released horse theme as soon as I can.

July Update

Thanks to Buecherwurm7 for her help in getting a few new variations for the site.

First up is the first style white and tan spotted pony. There are four very similar ones it turns out. The two main types as seen for a long time on Animobil, and two variations.

The earlier of each type has a broad paint spot on the neck. The second type of each has the peanut shaped spot on the neck.

Here is the new addition to the site – the darker version with the peanut neck spot.

The oldest style one horse with the pinto spots came in two main color variations for the spots, a lighter tan and a darker brown. The tan one has been on the site for years, I’ve now added the brown variation as well.

There is a mold variation on the brown puppy. There are many of them out there with the more steeply curved tail. This shows up otherwise only in the tan spotted puppy so far.

Shark 3 now has better photos. This version is hard plastic with a straight top fin, darker grey above and lighter grey underneath, square jaw hinge and a hole for scenery.

That’s it for additions this month. The new horse farm theme and the How To Train Your Dragon theme will both be out in Germany in the next week or so. New part numbers probably in the next update.
