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 still a Querry

Juan Angel (Gog of Toys From the Past) has sent in some more shots of his unknown cavemen in the hope it might wrack people's brains as to their origins? I can only add what I said the other day;

"I know they are late Hong Kong or early 'China' era rack-toys, probably with dinosaurs and a palm tree or blow-moulded rock or two, but can anyone ascribe a set title or brand-mark to them?"

I've previously - I think - only seen two poses, possibly the two on the left with rocks, whether the advent of two more heralds the fact that all six original Marx poses will turn-up is anyone's guess, have you seen the other two - clubbing prey (or another caveman!) and squatting with spear?

Guarding the cave-entrance!

Out and about, they suffer from being rather too pale for near-naked prehistoric types, and as copies will never have the quality of Marx originals, but they make a nice little group. If anyone can help Gog - he'd appreciate it.
