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.

A is for After the Blurb...The Battle!

Having just slagged the set off (above - when I post it) for various reasons, mostly based on modern sensibilities, it has to be said that if you were a kid of around 10 years of age somewhere in the mid-1960's and you unwrapped this on Christmas morning...

Fuckin'AAY!...although you wouldn't have got away with that in the 1960's...in fact I hope you wouldn't get away with it in any decent household now, but I'm a grown-up, sort of...with Asperger's..and my own blog!

Anyway, brilliant set - on another level and here it is all set up....left click to enormify, right click to enormify in a new tab or window.

That was one I realllllly wanted but you pretty much nailed the modern equivalent of my reaction upon unwrapping my Over the Top set.

good thing Im not rich enough or close enough to civilization or my house might be even more cluttered.

See post above Ross, for a close-up (published after your comment was posted!), I'm writing badly tonight (real life stuff has me in a shitty mood!) but the pictures are OK!

PS - The Over the Top set is one I'm still after, it had several unique'ies in it!!
