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.

Q is for Question Time - Bagheera?

Just a quick one as we looked at small cats this morning, here's a big one . . .

. . . which I'm sure is meant to be Bagheera. However it could just be a slightly comical black panther, especially as it's unmarked and Disney-licensed stuff is nearly always marked, unless unofficial/knock-off type stuff.

The lack of any marking would seem to rule out Kinder and I think it's  too big for the old Schleich 'mini's and it has painted eyes in two colours, they tended to dot eyes in black, if at all, but/so he could just as easily be a Halloween thing - as in a witches cat not a big cat? Does anyone know who made him?
