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.

L is for Lost World...of the Dinosaurs

Another Game-playing piece box-ticker tonight...

These are the quite useful figures from the Waddington's game Lost World of the Dinosaurs, quite common at car-boot sales (look for the big green box!), they come with some comedy-looking baby T-rex models and a snake-thing. But they are useful as late-colonial, WWI or even early WWII Western Desert; officers in pith helmet/sola topee.

There is a slight variation in colour between batches and I've tried to show light and dark of each. In Spain they come as card flats.
