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.

C is for Corgi Cowboys (No Indians!)

I think I promised this one to somebody over a year ago, can't remember if it was Sam or Gog, but it was one of them! Anyway, Sam has since published a better review of these but as I'm doing all (most...) of the Corgi over Christmas, they've got their five minutes...

There were only five or six items in total, these two (stagecoach and generic wagon), a simplified locomotive and carriage, and two larger play-sets, wagons and train, both with the three buildings. The only thing to note is that the red buck-board/prairie-wagon only seems to have come in the set, so you should always grab it if you see it - not for scalping a profit, but to fill the gap in your collection!
