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.

News, Views Etc...41st Herne Show, Germany

Had an eMail from Peter at PB To...oh no! It's not PB Toys any-more; it's BB...do I detect a corporate takeover by the offspring? Start again...

Had an eMail from BB Toys today re. the forthcoming toy soldier and model figure show in Herne, Germany:

Für die Deutschen Händler und Sammler hier ist das original -

Liebe Händlerkollegen,

dieses Jahr sind wir auch schon wieder rechtzeitig dran.

Die Vorbereitungen für die

41. Deutsche Kunststoffigurenbörse / 41st german plastic soldier show

am 13. März 2016
11 - 16 Uhr
Willi-Pohlmann-Platz 1
44623 Herne
Tischgebühren: lfd. Meter je Euro 50,00

gehen in die Endphase und wir wollten Euch nur daran erinnern,

das wenn Ihr einen Stand wollt, schon fast alles weg ist.

Also auf geht's


BB Toys


Falls Ihr euch anmeldet gibt es die Standdaten nur noch über die Herne Webpage, Einlaßbändchen gibt es am Tag vor Ort, es kommt keine schriftliche Bestätigung auf dem Postweg mehr. Einlaß für Händler wie immer um 9 Uhr

For those hoping to travel there from here (not me again sadly), it should be obvious from the above, but....

13th March (a month from today), doors open at 11am and close at 4pm (you need that long...there's tons of stuff to find and carry-out to the car in tranches!) at the Kulturzentrum (Cultural Centre), Willi-Pohlmann-Platz 1, 44623 Herne, Germany. Table fee is €50 per meter, dealers can unload from 9am.

That's as far as me or Bablefish are going to take it...more details from the website (which is all new and redesigned for 'BB' Toys!).


There's a new telephone number as well: 02377 78 79 322, and check out the new BB Toys retail website while you're surfing!
