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.

News, Views Etc...

I love a single issue website that really nails the subject and here for fans of rub-down pictures is a brilliant site for the old Lettraset ranges...

Used to love these when we were kids...I have an unused Star Wars one some where, which came in a mixed lot of crud from an auction!

That was a great trip down memory lane. As a kid in the seventies I used to love doing these transfers :)

Hi Red C, it's funny, I've been watching them on feeBay recently, and you can quickly build a collection, but...the ones that weren't desirable back in the day can be picked-up for 99p or a couple of quid buy-it-now, but the ones we wanted then get bid-up to 15 or 20 quid every time!
