Ahoy Mates! Playmobil fan from Brazil!!
« on: October 19, 2005, 05:27:12 am »
Hello Everybody!
I´ve been reading this forum for about 2 weeks before I decided to join in.
It really helped me with my first customs.
My name is Gabriel, I´m from Brazil and I´m 19 years old.
I´m a playmobil fan since I was a kid (6, i think) and I had a large amount of the Pirate theme, including the 3750 pirate ship and the 3799 Pirate Island.

Time has passed and they stoped selling playmobil in Brazil.  :shock:  
Almost 6 years later (the present year. 2005) how surprised I was to see that they were back on sale.   :D
(unfortunally they are now made by Antex and they´re kinda bad compared to Geobra ones.)
That brought my passion back and I decided to be a collector. (Pirate-theme only)
Two months ago I dragged my old collection from the attic (at least what was left of it) and started to buy new ones in mercadolivre (something like ebay).

Well, that´s pretty much it.
I´m interested in starting to build my own fleet (custom) and some help would be apreciated.

Thanx a lot!

Commodore Flint   :)

hi commodore flint!
another warm welcome from germany :D
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

Ahoy Commodore Flint!

As long as you don't use your ships to hunt down my pirates, I think we can help you out. ;)

Welcome, and please feel free to ask questions and share photos of your collection. The one thing we all love on this board is to see photos of Playmobil! :D

Thanx you all for your welcomes.
 :D

Hey Captain Enrique!
In the present time I´ve only 3 ships and they´re all busy looking for merchant ships in strange waters, hehehe.  :mrgreen:
I´m waiting for some more klickies to arrive, then I will post some pictures of my collection.

It´s very hard to find pirates made by geobra here in Brazil, and when I do find, I have to pay almos 20 dollars per figure.  :(
And since I´m still a college student, I have no such money to buy everything I want.

But this week I´ll post some pictures of my bucaneers, ships and islands.
(I´ve got only a few soldiers. But they already got a castle to portect my future port)

See you soon
Flint
