Playmobil Figures Series 3 "Statue of Liberty" mini figure (La Liberté éclairant le monde)

The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, designed by Frédéric Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886.

The statue, a gift to the United States from the people of France, is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

The Statue of Liberty is an icon of freedom and of the United States: a welcoming signal to immigrants arriving from abroad.

The "Statue of Liberty" mini figure (French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is part of the Playmobil Figures Series 3 set of female figures that have just been released.

Playmobil Fi?ures Series comes disassembled in loose parts all in a bag. You get to assemble the parts to form a whole or you can mix and match parts to customize your own mini figure.

Scroll down to see more pictures of this Playmobil Fi?ures Series 3 "Statue of Liberty" mini figure (for girls) with torch and tablet. Another nice figure from Playmobil. Between Playmobil and Lego, I much prefer Playmobil because they are bigger in size and hence has more presence.

I admire those people who are able to turn the individual Lego bricks into works of art but the Lego sets that are retailing in the shops cost way too much for something that you still have to put together yourself.

These series of Playmobil Fi?ures offer a lot more options and flexibility with very interesting designs and ideas being executed.

Not being confined to a particular theme (Western, Roman, Modern, Police etc) has thrown up a lot more possibilities and the ability to mix-and-match adds to the fun factor.

When I discovered that Playmobil Fi?ures Series 3 (for girls) will include this mini "Statue of Liberty" figure, I went back and got the Playmobil Fi?ures Series 1 "Uncle Sam" figure as well because I think together they make a nice couple, don't you?
