PLAYMOBIL – producers of miniature figures in both original and licensed properties continue to produce quality kids products. Building on the New York Comic Con 2018 reveals Hi-Def Ninja was able to get a better look at the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3, GHOSTBUSTERS, and The PLAYMOBIL Movie product lines.
The PLAYMOBIL Movie
YES PLAYMOBIL has enter the movie business. The story follows Marla as she enters the animated universe of PLAYMOBIL in search of her younger brother Charlie. Watch as she teams up with companions from the various themed PLAYMOBIL worlds including: Del, a crazed food truck driver; Rex Dasher, a suave and fearless secret agent; a loyal and endearing robot; a hilarious fairy-godmother, and many others!
What’s more amazing and something I think the company needs to showcase more is the amazing talent they have lined up for the movie including Daniel Radcliffe (I now want a Daniel Radcliffe Playmobil Figure), Anya Taylor-Joy, Adam Lambert, Meghan Trainor, and Jim Gaffigan

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD
For the last movie in the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON series PLAYMOBIL is continuing their line of products with new sets featuring characters and dragons from the movie. There are also armor versions of Hiccup, Astrid, Ruffnut and Tuffnut. Take a look below at some of the new releases from the line.
PLAYMOBIL was also great enough to send along a Hiccup, Toothless, and baby dragon set for us to play with. The set has 19 pieces and includes Hiccup, Toothless, and a baby dragon figures .
So lets start with the baby dragon. Having not seen the movie yet I’m going to go out on a limb and say based on the baby dragon’s markings we can assume the Toothless and the Light Fury make it out OK and have many baby dragons. This particular baby dragon favors the Light Fury with an all white body and black markings at the end of the ears, tip of the tail fin, and along the back. The Light Fury set on the other hand has a baby dragon with inverse markings. The baby dragon itself has a few points of articulation for the legs; additionally the baby dragon’s mouth pivots open and closed and the wings swing back and forth.
Next up we’ll look at Hiccup. While he is dressed in his battle armor Hiccup does come a few different accessories for different modes. You can snap on his shaggy hair and go without his arm cuffs for a more causal look or you can switch out his shaggy hair with a more shaped look that fits inside his helmet giving him more of a battle ready look. Additionally Hiccup comes with his flaming sword and wings as seen in the movies. I really like the dragon marking on his shoulder.
Finally up is Toothless. This Toothless with his blue shimmer markings has a twenty inch wingspan when stretched out and six points of articulation. While Toothless’ legs only move back and forth his wings which both rotate and pivot allowing you to pose the wings as you like. A button on Toothless’ back activates a light up feature making his glow even more fun and a firing mechanism on his head allows Toothless to shoot a projectile. Another cool feature is that Toothless also two tail-tips letting you go from Hiccup’s man-made invention to a more natural dragon tail.
Overall this is a pretty fun set to have. While it may seem like a minor thing I personally enjoyed the switchable tail on Toothless the most . The set retails for $39.99 and is available along with all the other HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON at major retailers including the PLAYMOBIL shop here.
