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.

B is for Blackrock

Time for a little small-scale of the current rack-toy variety I think! These can be found with various Jobber's/Importer's stickers on them, and have appeared time and again over the last decade or more in several sizes and various materials or finishes.

This is an unmarked 'generic' which came in a mixed-lot from a mate last Plastic Warrior show, I think in the larger sizes they were originally Applause sculpts (or Supreme/SP?). These are 21/22mm'ish soft vinyl, and I bought a similar set from a newsagents in Guildford a few years ago with unpainted figures in silver and black, in a polyethylene.
