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.

R&B is for Red and Blue

A quickie tonight, these came in about 14-months ago, but went straight into storage, they came with a huge chateau fort/castle, which we will catch later, but they just needed a better box than the one the seller sent (not his fault, Parcel Farce or Royal Fail wreaked it!), and off to storage, so I shot the figures quickly for last years RTM, which they never made, and the siege tower, for someone on another site.

Red; I don't know if these are Supreme, but I do know they were shipped by Toy Major, as the instruction sheet for the building made that clear. Certainly they have several poses in common with other Supreme sets, and are a soft substitute-PVC, however Toy Major do source from around the region and they may be someone else's. My own though it another Supreme set, purely on the accompanying 'palace'!

Blue; Similar set, sculpting style is more like those Roman/Medievals we looked at a while ago (and which I also suspect might be Supreme?). Unlike the red & blue (on black and silver) set/s from Supreme, as carried by Toy Major to Halsall/HTI and Simba, these are the same pose-set in different colours, rather than two sets of different figures, if you know what I mean . . . but the same slightly sub-scale at around 50mm - indeed as they seem to be newer, they may be replacing that older set of - now - much pirated figures.

That siege tower, one of the images is poor, but it was a rush-job to answer a question elsewhere. Different from the one we saw in the previous post, and about the same dimensions as the Atlantic Ancient's one, albeit with straighter sides and a better finish to the archery platform. The wheels are silly though - MPC astronaut for size!

Also take a moment to memorise the wall section from the castle (left hand shot), we'll be returning to it in the final post of this sequence of Supreme/Toy Major posts.
