RARE Vintage Playmobil #3799 Pirates' Secret Island Complete w/Box EXC! (Retired) (B) Rare Vintage Playmobil #3799 Pirates Secret Island 100% Complete with Box (First Edition) (Retired) EXC (More photos below) Ahoy matey! Check out this RARE, first version of Playmobil's #3799 Pirate's Secret Island. Manufactured in Germany from 1992-97, this play set afforded scores of youngsters hours of endless play opportunities. The set consisted of two, canny pirates (e.g. one captain with a black mustache and trihorn hat and feather and lazy crew mate with orangish hair and beard and a green sock hat) and one, long suffering prisoner with a long white beard and red bandana around his head). The prisoner is chained from an embedded round metal attachment inside the cave. This set is unusual in that it is 100% complete, with all of the smaller pieces that frequently went missing (e.g. prisoner's chain, blue cups and pitcher, lantern, wine bottle, goat, eating and cooking utensils, water barrel, and weapons). All of the foliage, palm trees, single stem flowers, both hammocks, blue and yellow parrot with its perch, and bags of "gold" are present. The set also contains a row boat with two oars, two sea turtles that really float, and a captivating island that features both a cave and a secret passage. The pirates can store their treasure chest, which really opens and closes, inside the cave or the secret passage way that leads to the opposite side of the island. There, in the dark of night, they can load or unload their gold into their row boat which can be moored to a nearby rock formation. When not plotting some new adventure, the pirates can take a nap in their hammocks. All of the items in the set have retained their original bright coloration. The only "imperfections" I have spotted with this set are: 1. An abrasion on the beach leading up to the large rock formation on the left side of the cave; this almost resembles how a beach looks when a rowboat is pulled up on the beach; the color has not been displaced and it's mainly detectable through touch; 2. Several teensy indentations (possibly melt marks?) leading up the beach to the left side of the cave; these indentations are @ 1/16" L x 1/16" W; they look like tiny foot prints in the sand and do not detract from the overall appearance of the base; once again, the color has not been displaced and I basically spotted these through touch. The rest of the base and all of its accessories I would consider to be in NR MINT-MINT condition. I've lowered my appraisal of this set purely on the basis of the abrasion and tiny indentations on the beach. In my opinion, this set warrants an overall EXC rating. The box, however, is in poor shape. On a scale from 1-10 with 10 being MINT, I would judge this box to be a 2/10. It's marred by excessive tape, torn corners, creasing, taped punctures and tears, edge wear, and massive rubs. The value of the box is that its graphics show that this is the first edition of this Playmobil set. This set weighs 7 lbs., 8 oz. UNWRAPPED. As the original box measures 27" L x 18" W x 6" H, it will require another oversized box to protect it in transit. My location is Lafayette, IN (47905). See my other listings for more great items! PayPal is the preferred manner of payment. All payments are due within 5 business days of the listing's conclusion. I also accept bank-issued Cashier's Checks and Postal Money Orders. Due to my bank's policies, I am unable to ship your item until these forms of payment clear my bank (usually within 3 business days). Please contact me if you would like to pay via a Cashier's Check or a Postal Money Order. The price listed is for the item itself. The total amount due will be the purchase price of the item the ACTUAL shipping cost to deliver your item to you. All shipping costs or extra fees (in the case of Canadian shipments) are the responsibility of the buyer. I will do everything in my power to find you the cheapest shipping rate—-whether it’s the USPS (First Class, Parcel, or Priority), Fed Ex, or UPS. I DO NOT PAD MY SHIPPING COSTS—-NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL! I SHIP WITHIN 48 HOURS OF A CLEARED PAYMENT. I primarily utilize Fed Ex Home Delivery for items exceeding 5 lbs. in weight, measuring greater than 12 inches in any dimension, or traveling longer distances. I’ve been finding Fed Ex has been running @33% cheaper than the USPS (including Parcel Post) and UPS Ground. FYI, another benefit of using either Fed Ex or UPS is that their quote includes up to 100 worth of FREE insurance. Additional amounts of insurance may be purchased for a nominal fee (that is much less than the USPS). Fed Ex also provides automated tracking updates re: your parcel’s whereabouts directly to your personal e-mail account. In order to ship Fed Ex (or UPS for that matter), I MUST have a residential or work place address, NOT a P.O. Box number, as well as a home or cell phone. Otherwise, they will not accept the shipping paperwork or transport your item. Packages traveling to Alaska or Hawaii will be shipped Parcel Post via the USPS. Insurance and delivery confirmation are required. I’m more than willing to combine multiple purchases into one box whenever it is safe to do so to decrease your shipping costs. PLEASE wait to check out until I can combine your purchases on ONE INVOICE and can calculate their combined shipping rate via Fed Ex. If you pay for these items separately, I get charged multiple transaction fees by PayPal plus you get over-charged on your shipping. Of course, I will refund you any amount over 1.00 that you've overpaid on shipping. However, it's easier on both of us if you wait until I can send you the correct amount. I’m more than happy to ship selected play sets to Canada. Remember that shipping to Canada can be quite expensive so please contact me for a shipping quote before you purchase an item. I will attempt to find the cheapest shipping rate possible. Canadian customers will be responsible for any brokerage fees, Custom’s duties, or VAT’s imposed by your government. I am not responsible for these charges. Insurance is required for all international shipments. Last, but not least, I offer a 10% discount for orders totaling 125.00 or more. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO RETURNS ARE ACCEPTED. I have attempted to bring any noted "imperfections" to your attention prior to your purchasing the item. However, I'm only human. If I have missed something or you have a problem with your purchase, please contact me prior to leaving feedback. Customer satisfaction is #1 for me. I try to provide outstanding service, high quality merchandise, and secure and expedient shipping. Feedback is important and I will be happy to leave you feedback once I know everything has arrived safely and that you are pleased with your purchase. Leaving me feedback helps me gauge how well I'm doing and also serves the Bonanza community by directing them to sellers who proffer outstanding merchandise and service. txzj pxzj2038 txzj71
