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.

N is for Nix, Nada, Nothing Prepared!

I had nothing ready for today, I'll try and post something later the afternoon, in the meantime here's a picture confirming an assumption in a previous post about some figures probably being out-worker's unpainted stock meant for something like a key-ring!

They were meant to be key-rings!

It's interesting that Traffic Wardens never made it into London's Uniformed Icons when it comes to souvenir items.

Hummmm . . . I think it's because you'd find them stamped, melted and cut into little pieces in the gutters outside the tourist kiosks!

Yellow-hatted gentlemen? Corporate-hatted, privatised, revenue-generating, F***arses . . . Apparently!

But there is one in the Corgi catalogue, Hornby (possibly Triang 'Minic' Motorway?) and didn't Micro Machines do one, in US Garb?
