My name is Markus, I'm nearly 36, married and father of three children, 2 years, 4 years and 8 years old. I'm from Austria. No, not the land with the kangaroos. The land which "Arnie Schwarzenegger" is from.
I got my first playmobil 1978 or 1979. Western, knights, safari and so on. At the end of the ´80, I gave all to my 11 years younger cousin. Thanks to his mother, for giving him only some animals and figures. He was more a Legofan, so in 99 I got nearly the whole Playmos back. Including all westernhouses out of the ´70 in best condition. I gave it a second time away from me, in ´99, expecting all my westernplaymo.
So I started collecting the Western theme in 2007 with a nice, big couple of old playmo. I was at first a part of a diorama with two other guys at WOB. This year, in march, I made a dio here in Austria, St. Pölten, alone by my self about 48m². In march 2010 it shall be an acw dio. Actually it should get 100m². I would be happy, if 60 m² will be real.
I'm very interested in the "Playmobil Sammler Club", and that was the final reason to get a member at playmofriends. And there was also offered a membership in here. So, why not?
Why did I need a final reason? Well, I'm member in six German commons round about playmobil
