Playmobil Western 2011

From the Playmobil 2011 German catalogue, you can see that the Western theme is back! Two new sets offer a fold-out Sheriff's Office and Bank as well a stagecoach with new red and green color scheme. Some have criticized the bright colors of the sets, but after looking at several vintage Western sets, they are not that bad. I'm hoping that the signs for the buildings and coach are not stickers, but we'll see. The fold-out set reminds me of 70s Fisher Price sets (Sesame Street to be specific) for those of you who remember. I think it's a neat idea and while it's not "as adult" as 90s Western sets, I still like them and plan to buy when released in the U.S. Let's hope to see more Western sets produced in 2012. I'm still looking for that Old Mexican village. Share your comments.
