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.

D is for Don't Talk Like a Pirate

That would be silly and juvenile! We are only to talk like a pirate once a year, but as I had announced a pirate ship last Christmas (followed-up by Peter Evans' actual vessel in February) and saw this, I thought it would be remiss of me not to announce another this Christmas!

Currently in TKMaxx and manufactured by Tai Sang's 'Redbox', the figures are a bit big and 'mere' action-figures but the ship is perfect for a small man-o'war and would suit 54mm figures as the Poundworld one last year was better suited to smaller scales, quite the Navy! Although this is a larger vessel still, and I didn't get to play with it, so don’t know what the electronic . . . oh! It's written on the box!

Another angle, the steps are out of scale and a bit steep, but you'd get a good complement of crew on the deck and officers on the quarter-deck. It's more Playmobile than last year's, and would need some work, but if you are interested it's around, now; 20-quid!

Also in TKMaxx, another pirate! Although this one only gets seen at Christmas, lives in a tree and has the look of that dopey dog (Droopy?) from Hanna Barbera!
