One body, millions of possibilities!You just have to love Playmobil. They’ve always been based on a very simple body shape for their figures. It’s what you do with it afterward is what makes the toys at Playmobil just so amazing.

This year we saw the toys for the How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World movie. Here again, the simple Playmobil figure, but it’s all the details and accessories that are just so incredible. The toys for this line just rock. Really incredible. I was able to review one of these sets weeks ago, but seeing all the sets, I just need to buy them all.

Next up was the Ghostbusters collection. Ghostbusters is celebrating 35 years, and Playmobil is helping celebrate. They are releasing the Ecto-2 from the Ghostbusters 2 with all 4 Ghostbusters and “slime”. A 4 pack of the Ghostbuster. And my personal favorite is the 6-inch figures. 

And later this year, Playmobil is having an animated movie aptly titled Playmobil: The Movie. And what’s a movie without a line of toys to go along with it. The line looks great! The expression of the faces are more expressive than what we are used to seeing on Playmobil. It’s also making me more excited for the movie!

Playmobil continues to impress year after year! I can’t wait to see what they come out with next year!
