This was a very good idea, and you've executed it incredibly well! I especially like the way you used the large castle wall pieces behind arches to not only give depth, but I also think it just looks darn good. :]

You Certainly improved on the original!
And I really, really, really like the fact that you are sticking with your modular wall design.
The way you are building now will allow you to make a verry impressive walled city display,
where everything will fit perfectly together.
So thumbs up from me, and keep up this beautyfully modular building.
Kind regards,

Teddy

Well, once again both lego and playmobil were the building blocks of my childhood. Your design for the prison tower seems to go well with the actual playmobil set. My favorite parts would have to be the smooth wooden walkways, and definitely the design of the tower (it turned out so well and just seems to stand out). Good job, and I think you could certainly make a good castle set from playmobil. Have you given a larger set design any thought?

Hello MTL, I have been impressed with your playmobil project since I saw your first creation on Brickshelf many months ago. But I would have to say that your prison tower is your best work yet. You have inspired me to build a prison tower, for my castle city.

Keep up the fantastic work.

I never really had playmobil when I was a kid, but from the pictures, it looks like you really captured the feel of the original. The interior is a nice touch, I especially like the furniture in the princess's room, the dresser looks great! Can't wait to see more once you have more time to add on to it.

the original playmobil set has been an ispiration, but i have trasformed and reinterpretated it with a new lego "touch".
the result is quite different from the original, but in my opinion it's more realistic

I love it. Great conversion. You're right, much more realistic.

I had that set as a child! It is a lot of fun to see it reimagined in Lego from. Nice work.

I too never had Playmobil as a kid, but I am really glad that I had Lego. It is good to have this Playmobil-Lego conversion happening by MTL, that way we haven’t really missed out.

I totally agree. Very nice to have it in Lego form.

Good work! It looks almost exactly like the Playmobil set. The wardrobe looks nice too, do the drawers pull out or are they fixed?
