Since PLAYMOBIL® customizing tricks and tips became common
knowledge through an excellent how-to-guide posted at
www.gardenwargaming.com, collectors and fans
all over the world have allowed themselves to
dismantle some of their most valuable figures to recombine them into new characters.
The great results that came out of these efforts, encouraged us to set up a
contest centered around the creation of customized figures.
Now, six months later, Collectobil.com and the Customizing Contest's jury members are
pleased to announce the results of the contest.

Geobra, the manufacturer of
Playmobil®, was so kind to sponsor the
5 Grand Prizes for this first customizing contest.
Thanks to Geobra, the winner of each category will get to choose one out of the following three
sets: a Viking Longboat (3150), A Wolf Clan Knights Set (3274) or a Red Pirate
Ship Adventure Set (3619).
Although this was the first event of its kind,
we received a total of 121
figures over the five different categories. Most popular was the
fantasy category for which 43 figures were submitted. The
futuristic category could have been better though with only 5
Jury members were selected within the fan community, but also toy
retailers, product designers and PLAYMOBIL®s very own Head of
Development, Bernhard Hane, were invited to cast their votes and
voice their opinions. Through an online voting site, they selected
the three best entries of each of the five categories.
