About Me

I’m a 56-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.

A is for Aladdin

Ten years before Brave, and one of Disney's most successful movies ever, and another one I haven't seen, but I've caught a few clips and remember enough of the story from childhood to be on top of it!

It was - in fact - so successful that a lot of figurines have resulted, and from time to time we've seen them coming-in in mixed lots with me muttering vaguely "Might be Kinder, probably Phidal, to big for . . .material is like . . . " &etc.; so it's nice to get a complete Phidal set, to start ID'ing them all more accurately!

Goodies, baddies and some morally ambiguous types! With reference to what I said in the previous post, you can see the play-mat here is just four crappy stills form the movie artwork/backdrops, and of little use to ought but a child, which is not a criticism per se, these sets are very cheap and the - relatively high-quality - figures are all the money, so that fact they mostly have basic text on the five-or-so stiff card pages and a naff play-mat is, rather, par for the course!

Close-ups of the various characters, scale is - I think - all over the place, but figures is figures, and with Kinder and other capsule toys and other set (there's a nine-piece set with the queen from Disney themselves - some of which we may have seen in those odd-lots), you can always mix and match!

He was genuinely intrigued by the tiger!
