Wow Playmobil XL by Leblon-Delienne

It seems that barely a week passes without a new Lego-inspired product being released, so it's nice to see another much-loved childhood toy getting a look in too, with these Playmobil XL figures from Leblon-Delienne.

These small moveable figures have come in many different guises over the years – knights, pirates and zulu warriors to name but a few. The XL figures are giant versions of the 7.5cm characters, scaled up to 24cm and made from resin. There are two figures available, Fireman and Nurse and each one comes in a limited edition of just 1000.

The figures cost £119 each and are available from here.
