Welcome to the Playmobil Playroom, where we take a monthly peek inside those impressive blue boxes and see what treasures await within. Sometimes we’ll have step-by-step photos walking you through assembly, maybe we’ll discuss and review a particular set or theme, or maybe we’ll have an unboxing video.
They’re INCREDIBLY well made and faithful to the designs you see in the How to Train Your Dragon films and on Netflix’s Dragons: Race to the Edge. Between the first two waves of sets, Playmobil has put out all of the major dragons: Toothless, Stormfly, Meatlug, Hookfang, Barf and Belch, and Thunderclaw. We’ve also seen a huge playset for the island of Berk and a few other smaller playsets.
But this third wave of sets connects to the upcoming third film in the franchise: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. And we have the exclusive reveal of what’s included.
Toothless with Hiccup and Baby Dragon
Light Fury with Kids and Baby Dragon
Deathgripper with Grimmel
Hiccup and Astrid with Baby Dragon
Astrid with Hopgobbler
Ruffnut & Tuffnut with Flight Suits
Snotlout with Flight Suit
Fishlegs with Flight Suit
On a scale of 1-5, all of these dragons are solid 1s. For the dragons, all you have to do is snap the wings onto the bodies. For the figures, just snap on their accessories. There’s not much more than that. Easy peasy.
If you’re a fan of the films, show, and franchise, it’s endless. The sets all combine together, obviously, with the growing line of Playmobil Dragons sets. And they also work remarkably well with Playmobil’s other (non-licensed) sets, particularly with Knights and Pirates.
The quality and attention to detail here are staggering. So if you’re a fan of a particular dragon or character or want to just collect and display them, I wouldn’t blame you. I could see these things hanging from a bedroom ceiling in an EPIC mid-flight action scene.
Seriously? Two enthusiastic thumbs up! They couldn’t be happier. These toys will be around for a while. That’s hardly a surprise, though.
