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.

P is for Picasa-Clearer . . . Rubber Cat-Girl-Lady-Woman

Peter Evans sent me this just before Christmas, and apart from 'Thank you Peter' I really don't know what to say about it, or what to make of it, so I offer it up for your delectation . . .

. . . it's a silicone-rubber, Cat-woman - super deform, full of water! I dare-say there is some alcohol in the mix to prevent greening, although you have to really squeeze her to make her transparent (as the pastor said about the actress!) and she is marked with the usual DC Comics licensing panel and on the base a 'KXAA'. The disc-marking is a production-date code thing.

The nature and properties of her material have left her a bit hirsute! Meiow! Google reveals they are called 'Mashems' and they cover Marvel as well . . .

The KXAA turns out to be a radio-station in New York, and the Mashems are actually made by Tech 4 Kids - New tag!
