Hello pirate fans, I enjoyed photographing the well known first LEGO pirate ship (set #6285 Black Seas Barracuda, realesd in 1987) close to the first Playmobil pirate ship (set #3550 released in 1978). When LEGO launched the "pirate ship" I was already a teenager inside my dark age, so I bought it a few years ago at a flea market for a few euro. It was a bargain: it was almost complete and the bricks were like new and not played. The Playmobil ship instead is mine: Christmas 1980, my parents gave me the set 3550 that I have kept to this day. I've spent hours and hours playing with this pirateship when I was a child and I'm so happy to still own it! What do you think about these two toy masterpieces? Here few shots: More pictures and info: Norton74 @ flickr
Playmobil are celebrating their 40th birthday! I used to have a few sets as a child but it didn't quite intrigue me the same as Lego. However, I often looked at their City sets hoping that Lego equivalents would be made. Therefore to honour Playmobil's anniversary, which sets (past or present) would you most like to see 'Lego-ised'? p.s. I am looking mainly for City sets discussion although other themes most welcome.
