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.

K is for Kellogg's Knights; Knot Krescent!

These were issued in 1994 by Kellogg's, pretty much the last time anyone issued 'proper' figures in breakfast cereal, although they were a tad small at around 45mm.

The figures are all in pretty casual or 'at ease' poses, either waiting for the battle to hot-up, or for their turn at the joust, you got one per pack (whatever size/weight of box) and each came with a sheet of four stickers.

The sheet was the same for all of them so you could build a unit of six identical servants of one 'house', or end up with two duplicates if you used them all at least once!

Backs; the relaxed stance of the figures is probably also - in part - explained by the need to reduce undercuts and have simple, shallow moulds, producing simple product with a fast cycle, resulting in a minimal unit-cost. But - they will still paint-up nicely, and one day I may have a pop!

They're not rare!

These were on evilBay, not that long ago either, and you often find complete sets of six, the trick is getting the sticker-sheet, but you only need one-and-a-half of them for maximum effect! It's a box-ticker; box ticked!
