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.

S is for Star Wars III - Not Star Wars!

Yes - Jan-Feb was busy for ephemeral, novelty, shite - and most of it at the bottom of the price-scale! We had a new store open in Fleet, a Pound-plus, mentioned earlier today here, it's like Poundland, but carries larger items over a pound (something I notice the new-ownership Poundland has started doing - that'll be the failure of the pound under Brexit - thanks idiots!), although most of the stuff in the toy and stationary sections is a pound.

They have the Disney princess eggs (also TPF Toys/STL) for a pound!

Playing.  I quite like them - at that price (they can be 1.50, or even 1.99 elsewhere!).

They also supply stuff to the 'I buy them so you don't have to' Blog-fodder section, for a pound; these are frankly - fucking hideous! The fact that I had one (it's gone to charity in a bag of bits) was a fact that I have had - albeit temporarily - one too-many! Topwell for Dracco Candy; if you need to know.

Still playing! We haven't finished with this quick overview of capsule toys either, but these were all photographed at the same time.
