So they're not in scale with any of the regular Playmobil toys.

There are other issues besides scale

Clearly, if Playmobil had standard licensing for these properties we'd already have playsets, vehicles, the works. So I'm okay with larger figures.

What kills me is an opening video I just watched of the two GB figures. You would assume at least standard Playmobil articulation, but the reviewer could only move the arms. No head swivel? Not even folding legs (despite the big hip architecture from the toys clearly visible?!)? And the proton packs are a solid piece. No removable wands with flexible tubing (which would be standard on a regular Playmobil figure). That's some weak sauce. We are basically getting little statues with rotating shoulders and a single accessory (though a few figures don't even have that). Preorderd the 4th Doctor and Willy Wonkay, but I may stop there.
