About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

News Views Etc...Action Figure anyone?

Please Sir; can I have a toy soldier modelled after me?

Yeah! Sure, a short-arsed, scruffy Gloster, hanging round the less salubrious bars of 1980's Berlin...why not!

How surprising Hugh. I wonder if these lumberjacks have weapons?

And they will be against who? GI Joe?

Good question Paul, there's no sign of them in the article?

Peter - Naturally...until someone is foolish enough to make French action figures, then we can all fight them!!

Jokeing aside, there was a 12" Osama doll!
