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 - Lido et al.

I'm an idiot; I forgot to include these in the Lido post the other day despite Brian sending them to me at the beginning of January! I'd mentally put them on the back-burner as I wasn't expecting to revisit the subject for some time; now, not only have we had another Lido post (link), but here's a follow-up!

It was with a bunch of US Cereal premiums, but the 'Berserker' suggests it's a full size Lido original, and in a nice 'Dime Store' bronze plastic. Thanks Mr. B, and I'm sorry I forgot to include it the other day - one day we'll reprise all of them in one post!

While I'm on the subject, the really clean silver one I was not sure/wondering about? It may be a Le Hommeel Camembert cheese-premium? Thanks to Ludo's forum for that one!
