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.

T is for Two from Timpo


Right; because I forced horrid, boring, real life on you this morning - before it disappears under a mountain of plastic bottles, spat-gum and crisp wrappers, all choked in exhaust-fumes - here's some toys for the addicts!

I think we've seen these before, but I shot them again and we have been slowly working through the duplicate shots in posts like this!

These were real 'behave yourself' treats when we were kids; sold from counter displays (so not Christmas-or-Birthday 'boxed sets'), but priced above the single figures (so not pocket-money 'choose one's), they were guaranteed to keep us quite in the car for . . . oohh . . . whole minutes!

Nothing unusual about this chap, the brown head is common with this pose I think, and the mauve caparison doesn't get the evilBay Germany guys terribly excited, he probably needs a shield, but otherwise a nice enough stand-alone figure.
