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 Probably Jaru

Because this morning's post was pretty thin gruel here's an equally brief box-ticker of the same subject matter. Photo's from Brian Berke, and current'ish . . . a year ago.

I'm so sure these are Jaru (or supplied by Jaru) that I've listed them on the Jaru page with no more than my intuition to go on; such assumption, what am I like? Just call me big-headed Evilentity man! They are similar to several Jaru marked items in several ways and were photographed at the same time and in the same place as several Jaru-marked items we've already looked-at.

Slightly better than this morning's set, these are harking back to 1970/80's sculpts with a harder polyethylene plastic to the fore. Shades of Britains and Elastolin in the horses while the ostrich looks to be from a composition moulding?
