A little Christmas pressie for me… but Ruhuh… I didn’t get the Mystery Machine (not yet anyway 😉) However I did get the Playmobil Scooby-Doo set 70207 featuring Scooby, Shaggy, Ghost and accessories.
Now for some cool Playmobil adverts from Brazil. The following three ads are reproduced here courtesy of longtime TVTA contributor and friend Zerocal and feature mid-90s Playmo figures from the manufacturer Estrela.
The ads are printed on mini comic books (in Brazil, called “Revista em Quadrinhos” or simply “Gibi”).
