About Me

My photo
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.

T is for There Were Other Colour's Available!

Black (always the baddies, the baddie cowboys always had black denim!), white, green . . . errrr . . . blue; I think there was a blue one!

 
Captain Scarlet? Meet Captain Scarlet . . . 
. . . Scarlet? Meet the Scarlet's!

Three iconic sculpts of an icon. Gerry Anderson don't you know . . . I'm struggling to find blurb here; have you noticed?

Because it's all in the image really. And while you don't need 400 words (it'd take an idiot to subscribe to software that might come out with crap like that in the first-place!), you do need enough 'blurb' to let Google know what the imagery is all about; if you want it included in search results . . . as I'm not that bothered - that'll do for this post!

Did I mention Gerry Anderson's Captain Scarlet? Personally; I think the Carlton-licensed PVC/vinyl Weetabix one is the best; the Timpo one is a bit wooden and the action figure is, well - a doll.

Indestructable? I put this Claim to the test. I set fire to mine. Turns out he´s Not quite as indestructable as the song claimed.

Ah . . . but what happened to his soul? Feeling haunted? Catch a molten-plastic burn, clearing up the mess? feel safe in the bath? You're on borrowed time! How could you!!!!
