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.

D is for Die-Cast Machine Men

A bit of a box ticker here too, but equally a bit special, much sought-after, a bit pricey when they do turn-up, yet hard to find, so I only have three different torsos and four legs, I think it should be six and six in a complete set, not sure if they did mounted versions?

Lone Star's take on swoppet knights, and clearly influenced by Britains own, being better animated than either the Crescent or Timpo efforts and far superior to Cherilea's offerings (either type). I'm pretty sure I have a spare shield somewhere, so the other chap should get protection in the fullness of time!

Hi Hugh, there are six foot and four mounted, the other three are attacking with mace, kneeling crossbowman and standing archer. The figures with mace, axe,sword and lance also came mounted.

Cheers Brian . . . I don't think I've ever seen them mounted!
