Many people will know that the figure that Playmobil produced to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation – a little Luther figure complete with quill – has gone on to be the most successful toy Playmobil have ever produced. To date, more than 1,000,000 figures have been sold!
During the course of our first Open Day in order to host some "Just By Faith Alone" Tours, I noticed that a Dungannon family, the Cahoons, had one of these figures as they completed the tour. They were keen to bring 'little Luther' and position him for photos at key points on their journey.
I reckoned this was a good blog post in the making so, upon requesting use of some of the photos, I received these. Enjoy, courtesy of Rachel, Cameron, and dad David!
[ P.S. Another post, featuring Playmobil Luther among the 28mm model pieces, will be appearing in future days. ]
