1996 Playmobil Medieval Knights

posted by Playmobil Bello - May 25, 2021

The year 1996 wasn’t much of a strong year for fans of the medieval knights sets. Playmobil only released five new boxes with this theme, but, they were all absolutely eye catching and awesome to own, probably some of the most wanted and coolest vintage sets to date.

(1996) 3887 Siege Tower

This is the coolest Siege Tower ever made by Playmobil, as shown here with set 3887. This was released just a couple years after the Medieval Castles from 1993, sets 3666 and 3667. The above shows somewhat of a different faction, the red eagles, but I believe they belong to the Castle Knights faction from set 3666, because their coat of arms uses the main colors green and yellow. (See their flag below).

(1996) 3888 Castle Defense

As mentioned above, the Castle Knights follow the colors yellow and green, which could indicate that the Eagle Knights belong to their kingdom. You can play in any way you wish, doesn’t really matter! This set 3888 is another genius design by Playmobil: An invasion Tower with ladders and ropes to break into enemy castles. Not only it comes with eight knights, but also connects to castle set 3666 or 3667.

(1997) 3889 Archer Attack

Playmobil set 3889 brings a platoon of four arrow and crossbow men, fortified with a mobile wooden wall, to barricade themselves from enemies projectiles. Fantastic display of medieval strategy with this set.

(1997) 3890 Baron

In this set we have a Baron, or heavily armored knight, Playmobil set 3890, with his loyal companion, a black dog. He seems to carry a coat of arms of a Black Eagle that doesn’t belong to any of the factions from 1993 sets.

(1997) 3891 Ox Cart Knight

I call this set the “Traveling Lady Merchant” but the official title for this Playmobil set 3891, is “The Ox Cart”. You can do a lot with it! The lady can be a traveling doctor, or just a helping girl, that can aid wounded knights by bandaging them. The set comes with a head and arm bandages for the soldiers. She is also in the trade business, with tables, a wine (or beer) keg, and a goat.

1999 Playmobil Medieval Knights

The year 1999 wasn’t much of a strong year for medieval knights fans, Playmobil only released one set: 3030 Knights Castle Adventure Set.

Another awesome half castle, this time with a large gate, resembling the gate from castle 3667, with a catapult, two mounted knights, a tree with rocks and several accessories. Not to mention six new characters!

Re-launch: Double Knights Set 3123

This Playmobil double set 3123 was released in 1999, revealing the option to buy both, Siege Tower and Castle Defense sets 3887 and 3888 in one single box.

(1999) 3123 Super Set with Siege Tower and Castle Defense

Everything is the exact same from the original sets, they are just re-launched in a new larger package.
