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.

S is for Spacemen...German Gift Giveaways

I'm not sure a name has ever been attributed to these as maker, but Manurba would always be in the frame for this sort of stuff, so I'll put it in the tag-list. They were give-aways with the German equivalent of lucky-bags I believe (and other things?) and the metallic greeny-steel one (top right) may have been a paratrooper. He's also a copy, with helmet clips which have helped him keep his helmet on Major Tom!
