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.

S is for See; Told You So!

Also available in blue!

It would be a bit crap if I left it there wouldn't it, a simple display of my ability to predict what I saw in the shop! Tobar for Hawkins Bazaar and others, as I said the other day when we looked at the red one, they were also in blue, but there may be other colours elsewhere, I suspect not, but there may be! Anyway; I was passing, I had the prerequisite 99p on me and I heard him calling!

As we were looking at larger figures the other day and these have been in the folder for too long waiting for a superhero post, courtesy of Brian Berke (you knew that - his 'berserker' is showing the true size of these 6" behemoths!) are these two Marx 1:12th scale Marvel characters; Spiderman and Captain America, also in blue, so filling-out a neat post - if I say so myself! Only 29¢ - those were the days huh?
