I like the idea of making an one legged samurai and if I could make some critisisim: the loop looks a little bit strange to me, srry  ???

EEK! I didn't know you'd taken to chopping your klickies legs off!! :o

Seriously, they look excellent, Cheng. 8)

It's very interesting to see how you adapt accessories from different themes - the Victorian maid's headband, for example - and all the little details that are added with tape/paper and stickers. :)


...i really hope there'll be a klicky with shaven(centre) head or i'll have to use those head pieces from the monk klicky for my next samurai custom  ;D

There's a bald-headed klicky coming in one of the new pirate sets. Trouble is he has the tan skin colouring and what appears to be tattoos all over his face, so the possibilities for customisation may be slightly limited. ;) But as far as I can tell, it is a new head mold, so that means it could appear again in future sets and quite possibly in different colourings. :)

Can the bald pirates head band come
off? The monk klicky only had a bald
spot in the center of his head and I don't
think his hair could come off. He was the
only bald klicky? Great samuries though!

hi Gai,
'Loop(s)'? you mean the color bands? ummm...just to add some 'samurai colors' ;)

hi Sylia,
its against my rules to cut or even rub off any printing from my klickies  :D
....i had this viking with a broken leg...with this custom...he's no longer an outcast and proudly standing amongst my fierce samurai(s)

hey ajr10,
i have 14 on my samurai(s) shelf now...i suppose you have seen my other samurais in my much earlier thread...i do add once a while when i get the right inspiration and the right body parts.

hey  seawarrior & sylvia,
BALD PIRATE;
too bad he's too tanned for many other possible customs if he wasn't
....and if his headband is moulded-on, then its worse.....
but if the blue headband is clipped on...there will still be that indentation....so i'm looking forward to only buying a couple to add to egyptian/middle eastern/indian themes only...and maybe one to my american indians as a mohawk or something...alot depends on whether the blue band is actually removable or not...
(but with all the great customisers here, i'm sure they'll be surprises with what they can come up with...so that pirate may still be hotstuff afterall  :D

Very nice, Cheng.

Your samurai creations get better every time. Keep making them!

The bald pirate might make a good buddhist monk or something, but the giant head band is kind of odd looking. If it was just a tad thinner it would so much better. Oh well, I guess much smaller and it couldn't klick to head.

Amazing work. :o :o :o  All your samurais were fantastic. Build more of them and create two armys. It would be a great diorama for some conventions.
Have fun with the "p"

hey Max,
a pistol is still nothing compared to those gattling guns he'll have to face (did you see the movie 'the last samural'?  ;D

hi all,
just one new addition...number 14 !
easy one...so instead of starting a new thread...thought i'd just add it here...

...no katana...only his nun-cha-ku...wont last long in any battle...his job is to attack his enemies at night   
(what i needed was really the single-hand held shortsickle with chain...if you know what i mean)

Hello, Cheng ...

Every "Asian" Klicky produced by Playmobil has the same eyes. Playmobil seems to think that this is what Asian eyes are supposed to look like (see attached example).

Do you think that this is offensive to Asians? And, do you think that Playmobil should use the same eyes for all their Klickys?

New subject:
Your Samurai collection is fabulous. I am really looking forward to seeing your "Last Samurai" diorama!

All the best,
Richard
