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 Ticks All the Boxes

I don't know for sure what these are, they may be an earlier run of Zomlings, or Moshlings, or something else entirely, and while I'm not that bothered right now, I will have to find out at some point and if anyone can ID them that'll be appreciated!

The thing about the pair is that they really do tick every box, with their skull removal stitches and bullet-hole Elastoplasts, their metallic finish, bulgy-eyes, giant feet, pipe-work tail et al, they are . . .

  • Space Alien
  • Undead Zombie
  • Super Deform
  • Baby Animal
  • Robot
  • Collectable Minis

. . . and as such are definitely at home on halloween!
