US Playmobil Catalog 2018

The 2018 catalog for the US is on the Playmobil.us website now. Located here.

The big news for animals is that there will be a new Dinosaur series this year released in the US. This is a surprise since this is the first public view of this series, it hasn’t even been shown in Germany yet. It’s recolors of the existing molds, no new species. The colors are good though and it will be worth getting if you are a dino fan.

One missed one that has been seen in the last German catalog is the brown fawn from the Series 13 Figures.

There are two new carry boxes, each with a new color animal in it. From the Winter Princess Carry Box is the white fox.

From the Egyptian Tomb Carry Box is a turquoise spider, the newer smaller size

There is also a Haunted House set, and it too has a new spider – red.

There are two uncertain ones this time. They may just be older animals re-released, or they might be new. Hard to tell from the photos. The first is in the Ghostbusters theme, an octopus. It could be color mixes red and yellow – or it could be the color shifting type that changes in water.

The other one is a coral that could be a new yellow, or the old dark yellow that has been released before. We won’t know on either of these until they show up.

In shields there are two new ones. From Figures series 13

and from Figures series 14

I think that’s it for this catalog. If you see something I may have missed please let me know.

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!)

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

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.

Thanks for reading – Tiermann

Shields Update

A couple of new additions to the shields section.

Thanks to Don a previously missed shield has been added. It is the two part round shield with the outer frame in old gold. It was in only one set, the Dragon Temple.

Also thanks to Don for pointing this out, the most recent batch of figures form the deAgostini books line includes women for the first time. One of these is Athena with a two part shield with the outer section molded in blue.

Here she is with the shield

Much more of a classic Playmobil look than the Play and Give Greek Athena from the last year. Both are great figures though and worth picking up.

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

Shields Update

Updated the Shields pages today with some new shields and a couple of photos.

In the Viking Easter Egg from this year set 9209 the shield has a new light grey main part,  with a reused insert.

Main shield part is 30 04 8872 and the insert is the old 30 04 8060

Also added new this time are the pirate ship’s wheel shield form the Playmo-Friends series and the one new shield in the upcoming Fi?ures 12 series

Also new in this update are the photos fro the most recent shield from the Playmobil Magazine – copper with the red and yellow black dragon, and the two from the Fi?ures Series 11

Nothing else expected in shields for this year, though you never know with the magazines or the late year releases. That’s it for this update – coming soon the full Figures update for series 11 and the new animals in Add-ons. Thanks for reading – Tiermann

 

 

Shields Update

A small Shields section update. Thanks to Don for pointing out that the Super 4 Wolf warrior figure available from Quick restaurants in France has a new shield variant – the Wolf Shield with a white background instead of the grey/silver

I also updated the Caparison page again with the Color caparison number 3 now having the correct white lance. Here it is big

that’s it for this little update. There is one more shield out there not shown yet – the ships wheel shield from the latest series of Playmo Friends figures. I will post it when I get a good photo.
