Not so fast, Frenchie. No way you're bringing this pistol on board.

Yes the gun adds a nice touch. I don't remember any of those in my Playmobil sets. But really, no shoe bombs or box cutters?

And what about sex-aids, nail clippers and eyelash curlers? ALL of which I have seen folks pulled out of line for. Though, to be fair things are a lot better since the screeners have become federal employees. I wonder if it because of better training or the fact that they just don't care...

I've been casually collecting Playmobil toys for a few years now, mainly because I love the weird variety of stuff available, from the hazmat crew to the river pirates (whose weapons would not only keep them off a plane, but allow them to arm a small revolutionary army.) A goofy, comprehensive world of fun, and relatively cheap, too--you can get individual figs for just a couple bucks!

Safe crackers, and the Getaway Car's text: "Escape from prison with a rope and hook. Vehicle's headlights move up and down."

Most of the airline security people I've seen could stand to use a good 75 to 100 pounds. Wouldn't the Weebles be a better model?
