Nuremberg Toyfair has happened and lots of new sets are now online in the catalogs and many on Playmobil.de
The biggest theme for new animals this year is the Mermaids Undersea world, there are a number of sets and most have at least one new color variation.
Totally new are these things which are probably tunicates.
Lot's of flowers have been added to the usual corals to fluff up the underwater world. There may be some corals in new colors but not much definite yet. I am leaving them off for now and when part numbers come available with the instruction sheets I will add any that turn up.
One definite new one is the sea anemone in blue
There is this clamshell box with a new insert. May or may not be a new color and number
The giant clam in new colors and reconformed to be a night light
New colors for fish
New dolphin colors
New sea turtle color combo
and a totally new giant nautilus
No shields at all in that theme.
The 123 series has some new fish colors as well
and a new unicorn
We've already seen the new licnsed Spirit Riding Free animnals in my last post. Here are the other Dreamworks licensed theme animals - How to Train Your Dragon 3
Playmobil has announced additional future licenses of Heidi, Back to the Future, and Scooby Doo. Nothing seen for them yet though.
Mid-year there will be a Playmobil Movie released in theaters. There are sets for it including a figure series and some others. Here are the new animals seen so far for the Movie
And there are shields with this theme
That double lion in gold and red is really outstanding.
Not yet in the catalog or on the website is a new knights fantasy battle theme of fire versus water. It has been shown in publicity stills so far on social media. There is an advent calendar for the theme that has been announced though. Two new animals so far, and some shields
Also in an advent calendar are two new cattle color variations. I am wondering if it may be the flocked spots on these white cattle as previously seen in advent calendars for horses and ponies.
That's it so far. There will be more sets coming later in the year. If you have noticed anything else definite please let me know. I haven't updated Animobil sites to reflect this yet, but will be doing so by the end of the month.
Thanks for reading - Tiermann

The old Wordpress site has been shut down due to hacking vulnerabilities. The Web Idea Tree software at least allows me to keep a local copy that can replace content online if necessary, and isn't as easy a target as Wordpress has become. In the archives here I have copied the posts from 2018. Since this is mainly a news page I felt that was enough. If you would like me to email you when I do new posts here please let me know with a mail to email@example.com and I will add you to my private list.
You can find links to past posts on the page below. Eventually they will get archived into directories by calendar year. Hope you continue to find the blog useful - Tiermann
