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.

T is for Two - Mulberry's Poitiers Figures

We've looked at these before and it only earned me a bit of sideways opprobrium in the comments, so I'm not saying much this time, they have their - rather spartan - A-Z entry here to which these two will be added.

Sir James Audley 1356
Battle of Poitiers

Bohun, Earl of Nothampton 1356
Battle of Poitiers

I would only add that painting is again poor (see cancer comment on A-Z entry) but these were offered as kits so may be home-paints, and while the figures are well animated, they are the same leg/body sculpt with different heads/arms.

Bubble-jet printed label, yuck! Another ten years and that will be totally illegible! Don't shoot the messenger; that's a fact.
