Playing TSA: Playmobil's Security Checkpoint

Amazon carries Playmobil's Security Checkpoint play set - from the description:

"The woman traveler stops by the security checkpoint. After placing her luggage on the screening machine, the airport employee checks her baggage. The traveler hands her spare change and watch to the security guard and proceeds through the metal detector. With no time to spare, she picks up her luggage and hurries to board her flight!"

The Amazon reviews are priceless, with lines like "My 5 year old son pointed out that the passenger's shoes cannot be removed." as a starting point, and they quickly go downhill. Sadly, it doesn't come with a line of passengers waiting, nor is there a recording announcing that the security level is orange...

If this looks familiar, it was posted in a number of places as long ago as 2005, although I seem to have missed it then.
