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.

F is for Follow-up - Lido Japanese

Chris Smith dug-out the Lido originals, which he has photographed next to the Hong Kong clones for us, condemning mine as smaller Hong Kong tat by the by, and as we've only recently had them here, there's not much to add beyond - enjoy the images!

Thanks to Chris, proper-box ticked! I'll add a note to the previous post pointing out the nature of their plagiarism and linking here, but I won't be able to do that until after this scheduled post has published.
