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.

P is for Paramount

Another box-ticker from Picasa, but a nice clean sample; Paramount cowboys and Indians . . . or Indian!

I'm guessing the one on the left is a later one (unpainted), but he could just have escaped the out-painter? Based on or direct piracies of Britains-Herald the double-gunslinger is the least like the donor pose with his more upright stance, fringed shirt and ten-gallon hat!

15-05-2017 - Paul Morehead at PW reminded me at the show this weekend that Replicants obtained the Paramount moulds, so the left-hand one is probably from Peter Coal as a re-issue.
