The local newspaper ran an article on the launch of the eBook version of "The Green Man".

This is a link to the internet version, and how it appeared in the paper can be seen in the pdf file below.

I'm not sure about the tag line on the front page!

 The story was rehashed in their "Review of 2011" (29.12.11)

Informal feedback on the eBook version 

I just wanted to thank you for your book, "The Green Man". As both a Playmobil and adventure comics fan, reading it has been one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done. I am Spanish, so I really appreciate the translation -although fortunately I can read it in English as well.

The combination of different themes and scenarios is great, so are the dialogues and the story as a whole. I suspect you must have received a lot of praise already, but I felt I had to write you this.

Many, many thanks,

Daniel - sent to

I read you book again and it is very good. Very nice pictures and story plot. You have done a mass amount of work to complete this project. Congratulations on a job well done. 

Lori -

Wow, this is amazing story! Thank You for sharing, I enjoyed very much! Fantastic work
Ana -

many thanks to do sharing this book on Internet. A lot of work, time and material, the result is awesome!!!! (the presentation well too). I wish you that Playmobil will recognize your comptetence and allow you to publish your wonderfull books.

Sure one of the best book I´ve never seem. Thank you 


TJ -

Hi Tomas! First of all I want to congratulate you for the amazing job done with your book. It is great!. Funny, well done, with a good history and really nice pictures. It is a real jewel for all Playmobil lovers. I´m really interested in have one printed copy of your comic, so please confirm me how/where I can buy one and if could be possible to receive it in Spain.

On the other hand, I have shared your comic/website in one of the most popular playmolovers forums in Spain, so I'm sure you will multiply the number of visitors/viewers from here.

Again, congrats for your work and many thanks in advance.

"El hombre de Verde" ("The Green Man" en su título original) es el nombre de un comic hecho con playmobiles por un britanico llamado Nick Foulger.

Muchos ya lo habréis visto, pero para los que no, os cuento de que va el tema...

Hace unos años el comic se editó y se puso a la venta en formato libro, pero desde hace un tiempo está también disponible de forma gratuita aquí, en la web de su creador. Se puede ver/leer en cuatro idiomas, entre ellos el castellano.

La historia narra la aventura en la que se ve inmerso el profesor universtario Thomas Swift cuando inicia la investigación de unos misteriosos sucesos.
La técnica utilizada para la realización del comic es la fotografía, mezclando elementos playmobil  con imagenes reales perfectamente integradas. El resultado es exquisito, al nivel del primer libro de R.Unglick sobre la historia según Playmobil.

La verdad es que es una gozada. Las fotos son geniales, podréis ver customs, construcciones, paisajes... y sobre todo disfrutar con una historia divertida y original.

Podéis verla en dos formatos:

- Libro eléctrónico
- Videocapitulos en youtube.

Mi recomendación es que primero veais los videcapitulos en youtube (son 9 en total) porque ganan mucho con música y efectos. Después podéis disfrutar de las fotos en detalle y sin prisa en la versión libro electrónico.

Espero que os guste tanto como a mí!
P. Pelalal -

What can I say? Hats off!!!
You´ve done an extraordinary work of art with this comic: pity that Playmobil doesn´t approve its publication...
Thank you very much for sharing this book format which I really like.

With my sincere admiration,

I tend to pop onto The Green Man regularly to check for updates, and have enjoyed every minute of the story so far - really well done and a pleasure to read.  Thank you!

Just read through the Green Man again, superb, looking forward to the next chapter

Town Klicky - Playmobil Collector's Club (PCC)

I watched chapter 7 late last night and I really enjoyed it,(SPOILER ALERT) I bet the country scenes took ages to develop! ;) I always knew the dhl vans were dodgy ;) but I was so shocked when I saw Thomas's bad driving at the end of the episode, I hope he's alright the silly musketeer, I'm sure his air bag has saved him and with all the police around I think he will make a full recovery but I think the boat will escape with the packages :( let's just hope the police helicopter can track the boat with the other police boats. I really enjoyed this episode, however I am now waiting for the 8th episode, when will this be released to view? :D

 Chapter 8 

The kids loved it, 47 minutes on freeze frame!

We watch it through first, then again pausing so they can take in all the detail

 Chapter 9 - final chapter 

Many thanks for the chapter 9. I don't want to think about, for how many hours you spent to do this amazing project.  To setup your collection, to take the pictures, to work with them, to write the dialogues and finally to make the videos and I don't know what else.  Incredible job, congrats.  I really enjoyed this my friend.  Many thanks for sharing.  Looking forward for your next work.

Friendly George -

thank you for the link to the final chapter 9, it is quite amazing and a glory end of a very very beautiful and sticky story.  
I think that lead me to some ideas for fantasy-roleplay ... 

By the way, I hope you will do something like that again.
Somehow I miss the green man and his lovely adventure.
But I think he will return with another gorgeous story done by you. 

As resume: thank you very very very much for all of that.
If I have to decide, you will get 10 Bon points, surely !!! 

So long, you great storyteller and PLAYMOBIL (R) fan.



Yo los sigo desde que empezó a publicarlos en FB, y estoy con Pelalal en que en formato video son muy interesantes, aunque son viñetas fijas los efectos de montaje y sobre todo, la música (compuesta expresamente para la historia) le da un toque más interesante todavía.

Es muy recomendable, un trabajo muy bonito y una historia que engancha. Nick estará feliz si le dejáis alguna opinión o comentario, suele responderlos!
