TTSNB: Playmobil at Orange Alert


I used to like my Playmobil stuff when I was little. They had a great Old West sort of collection you could buy in smaller pieces. I had a Sheriff who came with a shotgun and rocking chair, which, at the time, made perfect sense.

This particular set-up... I just sort of think any parent who believes their child is going to really expand their imagination by make believing their one little figure is wanding the other... In a way, its kind of awesome. I don't know. Maybe this is what kids like to play with these days. I can see a five year old Ryan working this playset into some of his playtime. Maybe Batman and Princess Leia would have to swing through security before getting on the Fisher Price shark reef patrol boat and finding Godzilla. I dunno.

It is very difficult to imagine this is not a photoshop, yet it seems genuine.

As to genre mixing, one of my fondest memories was the GI joe base under attack by the vile forces of C.O.B.R.A and their mutant horde (read, all the aliens from Star Wars). I recall my brother Stephen, not given to this type of flights of fancy, orcestrating much of the attack.

This thing is trumped only by The League's "Body Cavity Search Playset".
