Well seeing as how I have no freaking idea where or what Zirndorf is I'll tell you. It's the only locations of Playmobil Fun Parks. And I live in West Palm Beach! SUCKERS! Florida has been good to me in that respect. I can drive 2 hours and pick up those excellent Indiana Jones figures at Universal or I can drive five minutes to get all the Playmobil I can fit in my cargo pockets. I am constantly badgering the minimum wage people behind the counter for the giant Playmobil stand ups. These things are screaming to be cast in a porn movie.
Now the Vikings. Who here loved Eaters of the Dead but didn't want to spend a fortune on Marx's old Viking figures to recreate the excitement? Well these Vikings are for you! First steal a camera, digital, preferably. By stealing it you save money that can be spent on Millionaire Playboy merchandise at the MillionairePlayboy store.
Set 4595, Palace guard, he will play the part of Ibn Faldan

Those first two sets are relatively cheap and act as good Viking army builders. You like Penis. A lot.
So now you are good to go. A little theatre blood and you're all about making movies on a smaller scale to pass the time. Before death's hand grabs you, that is. You know you just sit on the porch and watch it get darker and darker.

*Not actually historically accurate. Vikings were pagan druid dope fiends.
