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 Not!

Further to the unknown Rhineland frog, these are the figures I was thinking of, when I said I recognised the bases . . .

. . . and - as you can see - they are very different from the frog. These two Marx clones (the tatty, damaged one on the left may or may not be from the same source) are probably from some kind of candy container, or clip-into a cheap rack-toy AFV or bath-toy vessel, but with the stalk attached to the base; are very different.

So if anyone can help with the unknown frog its owner is still after an ID.
