Playmobil Secret Agent Headquarters Sets 4875-4883

Updated on April 18, 2013

Playmobil Secret Agents

A guide to the new Playmobil Secret Agent Headquarters and other Secret Agent sets. This is a very cool new addition to Playmobil. Set in an action-packed high-tech Secret Agent universe where you might expect to find James Bond or Jason Bourne. As well as the Secret Agent Headquarters, there's a working Torpedo Diver and a Remote Control (optional) Gangster Truck that can be kitted out with a Spy Cam. This range is new the US market for 2011.

We've had some movie branded action hero ranges and while the kids love the novelty value, they are soon on to the next thing. I love that this set has all the excitement of a secret agent theme but is also compatible with the rest of our Playmobil toys and has all the great design that Playmobil puts into their toys. Somehow the kids seems to enjoy mashups even more than playing with the sets as they are designed. I can see secret agent knights and pirate gangsters in the future!

There's a lot to this range including lots of add-ons to create a remote controlled spy car. But you need to know which bits go with which other bits! I'll guide you through the options and cover common combinations that you might want to buy.

Spy Team vs Dr Devil and the Robo Gang

As usual there's a wonderful backstory behind the Playmobil Secret Agent Range.

The evil Dr Devil and his Robo Gang are determined to deply virus satellites and gain control of the super weapon's system CD. That doesn't sound good, does it.

Fortunately the Spy Team are on the case with their high-tech gadgets.

Which side are you on?

The Playmobil Agents Headquarters is Playmobil at it's best. It's packed with features to help create Secret Agent adventures. You get five secret agent figures and convertible multi-function vehicle which go on land, sea or air. The floating Jetski which can be upgraded with an underwater motor.

There's an LED map (you'll need 2 AAA batteries). The headquarters building itself is set into rocks and has a trapdoor and Jetski hiding place. And as always with Playmobil the set includes loads of accessories including weapons, computers, gadgets and furniture.

The Agents' HQ also has an alarm that can be set that will trigger if it detects intruders (the pesky Robo Gang trying to sneak in and steal secrets no doubt!)

Playmobil Agents Video featuring the toys

We like Playmobil animations almost as much as we like the toys! My boys love to watch the videos and then recreate scenes with their toys. Watch this video to see lots of the Playmobil Secret Agents toys in action. Sorry the dialogue is in German and you'll have to click through to Youtube to watch.

It's worth watching though. You get a good view of the features of lots of the toys and the story between the Spy Team and the Robo Gang. Lots of ideas for Secret Agent adventures.

I'm afraid I haven't found an English version of this video, but I rather like the German version - I don't speak much German, but you can get the general idea.
