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.
