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.

F is for Follow Up - Kaskey Kids' Soccer Guys

Brian B sent me a couple of images to cast a little more light on the Kaskey Kids football set we looked at the other day, with useful shots of the team's make-up.

Apparently we're moving to a 12-a-side game! And while it says "30+ Pieces", I can only count 29? Are they including the box, and - separately - its integrated lid? Still, carping aside; working on the £5.99 for Phidal's dirty superhero dozen ($8-odd?), 26-dollars seems reasonable for 25 figures . . . even if they need a repaint!
