Playmobil Hair page updated!

March 26, 2013
A major update on the Hair page!  Hopefully I've covered all bare-headed styles and colours. There are plenty of new styles, many first appearing in the Figures series.

There are also 7 new colours - increasing the total by a massive one third in just a year!  Some of them like Pink and Blue appear in the new Fairies series, but I can see these being used for trendy teenagers too!  Two other new colours - Light Yellow and Dark Brown are great general use additions!

This is a chance to experience the book as it was originally intended, and please those who were not keen on the video / audio-visual format. :)

A bit later than planned, but the final chapter of The Green Man - No. 9 - is now available to read!

I must say a big thank you to my friend Daniel in Chile who gave up his free time to translate it into Spanish, bringing the complete book to Spanish speakers for the first time!

I can now start on the electronic book version of each translation presenting the book in its original comic book format.

Playmobil Hair!

October 30, 2012
I've updated the Playmobil Hair page with photos of the newer hairstyles. I still do not have them all, but it's getting there... and there'll probably be new ones out in 2013!

The page shows all the hairstyles for bareheaded (hatless!) klickies!

The sequel...

September 21, 2012
Since Playmobil's manufacturer - Geobra Brandstatter put an end to The Green Man being a commercial venture back in February,  the sequel - "The Doomsday Tablet" has had to be put on hold.

The manufacturer however kindly approved continued publication and production of my comics on a non-commercial basis (and have supported me in my bid to make the The Green Man freely available on Facebook and in their forthcoming fan website).

It's mainly a question of finance - not only in terms of buying large quantities of Playmobil and upgrading my photographic and IT equipment, but of helping to support my family during the many months such a book takes to produce.

The sequel however is fully scripted and sketched, and rather than just permanently putting it on hold Thomas's adventures will continue in a non-visual medium, as a series of children's fiction books: not something I ever expected to do, but which I'm finding an enjoyable challenge... and probably not that unexpected considering my background.  (It's extremely practical - I can pick up the writing whenever I like and there are no costs but time!  I hope to complete the first book within 6 months - video editing permitting!, and I will then do the publishing rounds, while probably writing the second.

Does this mean an end to future Playmobil comics?  Hopefully not.  You never know, but promotion of The Green Man alone is not enough to make this dream come true and my creative juices are urging me on.  Converting The Green Man into a video has kept me going, but it's now time to move forward and bring the sequels into existence.


Unfortunately this means non-English speaking fans of Thomas Swift may have a long wait to read further adventures, but I hope in the meantime you'll continue supporting it by sharing, linking  and generally spreading the word about "The Green Man" to your family and friends, especially to children, and in any Playmobil communities you belong to :)

This website will continue to focus on my Playmobil activities.
