About Me

My photo
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.

C is for Contribution Fortnight - XIII - Yoga Joes from Brian

Brian shot these in New York (Grand Central Terminal no less!) before Christmas, and while they have been flagged-up elsewhere over time, they are still needed to 'tick the box' here at the Smallscaleworld.

Also it's interesting to see both the packaging - which holds each figure in its specific pose - and the apparent size of them; they are around 90/100mm, putting them in a different class to the various civilian sets like Kid Robot's street kids or the Toy Boarders from AJ's
YogaJoes from Brogamats ; Brian reports they were 'pricy' and they do look displayed to temp the memento-seeking tourist rather than the toy fan!
