Oh give me a break. Kids like to play things that are exciting and adventurous. Of course if you give them a bank play set they're going to play bank robbers. If you don't include the bank robber figure they'll just use another figure as the robber. What the hell else are kids going to play with a bank, they're not going to be giving mortgages to their action figures, they're not going to play "let's collapse the global economy with risky banking practices".

I've been selling Playmobil at my store for ages.  They have had jewel theives, getaway cars, safecrackers, catburglers and so on for years.  Every police station set they release has a jail cell that has a breakaway wall for the villians can escape.

That's to say nothing of the knight and pirate sets and all the violence there.

Frankly I've always thought it was cool how they never felt the need to worry about being PC when it comes to there product.

That looks like a lot of fun, actually. These kids have probably seen Ocean's 11, The Italian Job, or maybe even The Dark Knight, so what's the difference?
