About Me

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.

K is for Knights Knot Known

I think we may have had that heading before too! Also; I DO know something about these, I know they are Portuguese and I know they were premiums, but beyond that I don't know who made them, or what product they were presented with?

These are about 40mm, and go very well with the Starlux knights and medievals by Merten and Elastolin, in fact they look like they might have been sculpted by the same hand that produced the Starlux figures? Anybody know who made them or what they were issued with? Ajax washing powder?

Added 17-06-2015: More  on them in Portuguese here.

I have the original Starlux figure of the ball and chain knight so that one is definitely a copy.

That'll be it then, they probably all are, I only have a few (of the Starlux)and they are mostly damaged, but the look was definitely there! Thanks James.

Hello Hugh,
I think they're just maybe unpainted Starlux 40mm .

Hi Mathias - No they are soft plastic, and I was assured they were Portuguese, it's just I didn't recognise they were Starlux poses...I did think they looked 'like' Startlux! And I need a brand for the premium...Ajax maybe? Their premiums were often white?...

"Whiter than white"!!!
