See adorable Playmobil NHL figures for 12 new teams (Photos)

Last year, Playmobil made 16 NHL figures, and they were all very cute.

Now they’ve finally expanded the line to include a 12 more teams, including five in Canada, which sometimes gets the shaft when it comes to toy lines. (Luckily, Playmobil has a deal in the U.S. and Canada, the first time in the company’s history that it has licensed line in both countries.)

Click here to take a look at the figures:

The new teams, with one player and one goalie for each: Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, Ottawa Senators, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Vancouver Canucks, Washington Capitals and Winnipeg Jets.

From the good folks at Playmobil:

As part of the expanded line, playsets inspired by 12 more NHL teams, including both player and goalie figures will hit stores this spring. Additional sets featuring NHL rivalry packs, Stanley Cup Presentation, Score Clock with Referees and an NHL holiday Advent Calendar will be available this fall. The initial line of NHL-inspired playsets included figures from the Original Sixfranchise teams, a fully-functional NHL Hockey Arena, a Zamboni ice resurfacing machine, NHL referees and the coveted Stanley Cup Trophy.

“Due to popular demand from consumers and retailers alike, we are thrilled to expand our offerings of NHL toys,” said Mark Cohen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for PLAYMOBIL USA. “Young fans were clamoring to play with their favorite NHL teams and now with the introduction of additional franchises and iconic NHL moments, they can continue to express their fandom and create their own authentic NHL-inspired experiences with PLAYMOBIL.”

Yes, finally young fans will be able to recreate video reviews and clock adjustments!
