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.

F is for Follow-up; Wilco Cats

Available now from Wilkinson's and Wilco stores, these are not the sculpts looked at previously, and rather than blind-bags - the norm these days - are actually in 'which ones haven't we got yet' window-bags, bargain!

In a dolls-house scale I'll leave to others to define (I'll tag them 1:Large Scale!) they are nicer than the set I found earlier in the year, but not quite as nice as the 'chunky' set Brian Berke sent to the blog.

Like the sets we looked at back in the summer, they are simply-painted (no tabbies!) and have big starey-eyes but are otherwise nice enough if you have a separate shelf of cats in the collection! There are dogs and dinosaurs too, also three bags for four, for a twelve-count, Wilkinson's - just in time for Christmas stockings!
