About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 58-year-old Aspergic gardening 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.

PW is for Plastic Warrior Show - 5 of 5

The last of the purchases and all from one big tub I was talked into at the end of the show!

I had seen it, and there was useful stuff in it, but I have it all already, and it will - in the main require a lot of work in the future, but maybe we'll get some posts out of the sorting, but for the Giant or What? Blog, not this one!

The main lot was a thousand-odd (?) Hong Kong hollow-horses, loose, together in a big tub! Whether there are any Giant originals in there only time will tell, and it's time I don't have right now, but there were also some smaller bags which we will look at in a minute, and I have a feeling the larger bag, also mixed hollow-horsed Wild West (there are some Romans in the bigger tub) came from someone else? Peter Evans or Brian Carrick?

Blue Box Germans and Triang Motorway construction workers are probably the highlight here, along with the off-white sailor who I think is from a  big-box ship/play-set. the yellow figure is also new to me, being a football goalkeeper, probably from a game.

Micro-armour from board games and rack toys, mini-vessels - likewise and a ship's turret from a kit, there's nothing new here! Someone has started painting the Axis & Allies tanks, which gave me the idea to have a bash at some point in the future!

Farm animals and some useful wagon wheels, again I think I have all this, but I'm pleased to get the little guy with his plug-in hoe; I think I only have brooms . . . 25mm, Hong Kong, with a plug-in hoe!

The orange guy at the front belongs with the little pile at the back, best lot is probably the large pile of really poor 3rd/4th generation copies in four colours, as - from memory - I only have them in white and pale blue?

The LB astronaut is also a late copy, with a chunk of flash, in front of him is a none-to clear Marklin copy (shots were a bit too high!) and the two seated figures may be new to collection, look like farmers, probably from a die-cast vehicle?

Blue Box; a bit bashed but glue'able, and one from the Hornby-Triang Battle Space sets, but he's had his penny-base cut back to a slot! these are the earlier ones with the 'kidney' bases, later replaced on the Brits, with the penney-bases carried over to the soft plastic ones like the light-blue one in the second image (above), in which guise they got a Giant Plastics Corp., issue!

A few kit-bits and oddments which will top-up the spares boxes at some point! A nice Roscopf wagon, no horses, and two Huskey/Corgi Junior forward-control Land Rover canopies, but the rarer brown one has been drilled! The Matchbox Stuart Tank just needs paint (once I've worked-out what the additions are for?), the spare HK Jeep windscreen may prove useful in the future and the silver chaps are two Tomy Zoid-pilots and a Silverlit Multimac copy.

There is a follow-up show post still to come, but it's Sandown on Saturday and a big lot from Chris which came in the other day, while Historex and the rest of the Romans sit on the desktop, unloved, and the Old Timers who have been moved back into the long queue about three times! It'll all happen, eventually!

I think 'Farm animals' are Blue Box. Pinkish plastic seams to be unmistakable indicator! What do you think?

Yeah, some might be, it all comes down to marks with them and I didn't look too closely, that's a job for another day.
