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 Lounging Lizards or Lizard's Lounge

I feel a bit of a theme developing, there was the bronze one awhile aback which was itself triggered by a nice rubber one on another Blog (Jan's?), the pack of 12 the other day, and now these sent in by Brain Berke yesterday.

Current rack-toys from across the pond, they come in two sizes of which these are the smaller set. Two poses, three of each but given six separate colour-ways.

The larger ones come four to a pack, and they are four different sculpts, and like the mini-ones the other day seem to be well detailed and anatomically correct, although the paint-jobs are, I suspect, a bit, err, over-zealous?

Brian found a second set with four more colour variations. I know nothing about MTC, except to assume the TC is 'Toy Company' and that's it's a modern US jobber, rather than either of the MTC's I was confused by the other day...or is it?!

Have you any Lizards, old or new to share with us?
