I saw that on FB.

I collected a few Playmobils as a kid. Seems like I have a glow-in-the-dark Playmobil ghost-in-sheet somewhere, complete with real metal ball and chain attached to his ankle.

Image

I found that pic online, as well as a few other Playmobil iterations of ghosts they've done over the years.

And I want to say someone once used a Playmobil police car to give their Kenner Ecto some working lights.

[Edit: found the thread but the pic links are dead. http://www.gbfans.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=19190&p=306736&hilit=playmobil+ecto#p306736

I really hope they do an Ecto.

Plus, they have been known to do a firehouse before...

Fun to look back on my older comments on this thread and see that I was correct about both an Ecto and a firehouse... but the full line of the Playmobil GBs surpasses my fond hopes.

In addition to the past offerings like ghosts, seen above, I had an idea that certain other older Playmobil toys like police cars and garbage trucks might come in handy to flesh out the scene.

And then I had this impish thought of Tracy the Gorilla coming by the firehouse for a visit.

Image

Image

He just needs a fedora.

I got mine off the 'Bay for a reasonable price, and great communication from the shop selling it.

The set also includes a washing machine and an iron/ironing board... as well as a tiny gray mouse who I predict will pop up in the background of lots of my Firehouse pics.

Well, he's clean... but I can't figure out why they went with a totally different design for these Funko/Playmobil two-ups.

You can get these from a website called Wildcard Toys. $23 for the pair, plus $5 shipping.

Janine's desk and a firehouse lamp seem to be from an Old West set offered in 1994, the Sheriff's office (3786).

Image

Meanwhile, her computer, phone, and chairs look to be from set 7224, office equipment.

Image

The tripod looks to have been used in several sets that featured all eras of still or video cameras. The camcorder in this set is an existing sculpt as well, still trying to track down its origin.

The dresser with four drawers looks to be a match to this dresser/entertainment cabinet with two drawers, from set 5308. Check out that fireplace, though. Could've been a cool addition to the Firehouse.

Egon's microscope and test tube rack have been in numerous sets... including this bizarre Frankenstein-esque set 4880.

Image

No surprise the firehouse's fire hydrant is an existing piece, as seen in 5366...

Image

... as well as that other firehouse (5981) which I mentioned earlier in this thread.

Image

[I sure wish the GB Firehouse had come with a one-solid-piece staircase like 5981, instead of that one-stair-at-a-time snap together thing.

I'm sure I could find the stool, bookshelf, pans, etc. if I looked a little harder.

And then there's this piece...

Image

... which comes from some really old space sets.

Image

I'm having a hard time figuring out what to call it though.
