Playmobil artist Ralf Gemein has created thirty-three original "Special Specials" that were never produced by Geobra!

Hey, Timmy ...


Hey Richard

In your introduction to Ralf Gemein's Greek/Persian customs, you used Marathon and Thermopylae in the same sentence.  I guess you meant it could represent either battle?

-Tim




Thank you very much for your excellent question !!!

I did NOT do a very good job with the title of this theme ... :-[

Ralf did not intend for this theme to only represent the Battle of Thermopylea.

I took a bit of "editorial license" because I thought that most folks would be able to easily relate the theme to the "300" cinema presentation.

I realize that i probably should not have done that, as Ralf's beautiful customs really encompass a much broader period of Greek history.

Perhaps a more appropriate title would be "In the time of Marathon (490 BC) and Thermopylea (480 BC)" or maybe even better ... "In the time of the Greco - Persian Wars" (499 BC to 448 BC)

Thanks again, Timmy, for helping to clarify this for everyone.

All the best,
Richard
