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.

W is for Wind-Up

Christmas present to me, myself and I, well you would wouldn't you? Especially when you noticed the separate bayonet taped to his pack!

Markings on the foot-underside changed to 'CHINA', but otherwise the mechanism is unchanged in at least 40-years, the same as the old robot we looked at ages ago which came in my Xmas stocking about 1976, they just change the case from time to time!

If you think this is 'thin gruel' for Christmas day, I have shed'Yule'd (see what I did there! Crimbooooow!) several-more posts to publish through the day as a thank-you for your support through the year and so whenever you can escape kitchen disasters, need to hide from screaming kids, dolls singing 'Frozen' in Spanish all day (will it be Moana?) or whatever you're hoping to run from; pop back here and there should be something new for you!
