:coffee: Well over 24.000 visits here now
and my hand, finger and arm is very hurtful tired ,
so i'll let others press the button from here on in.

Well probably not MUSCLEMEN Peter, my collection is very large now it being two large tubs filled with the oddest of figures bursting at the seams to get out.
Mrs B, said, 'You might get a lot more in them if you remove the soap?' :eh: Eh!

Image

:mrgreen: Let e'm out BB ?
:coffee: However there is only one rare figure left that i would buy in an instant,
i know of two in the USA but not for £30.00.

( Special bye-gone age figures Yes! Or even new ones. :thumbup: yes.)

My real old muscles are pretty naff now and lacking in style,
but as for the toy ones,here within my topic i aimed for £2.00 to £4.00 a figure, and set by that principle i bought most at £2.00.So for a modest budget i've saved well over £ 600.00 Ain't that cool ? I also pushed the prices down on E Bay. :mrgreen: How do you prove that BB? :sst: well nobody is buying them at £7.00 or £8.00 at this time. :coffee: Well said little button. Those that have them way overpriced have still got them which mean they have had no sales in over Four Months! On the other hand i've received good feedback from E Bay sellers who were happy to move their stock quickly.

i bought low priced ,then others bought, everyone was and still is happy, and the greedy fat cats still have theirs in their expensive shops. :mrgreen: Much better to roll the coin out than using the plastic money :sst: and It's only business! :coffee: But a huge part of the fun.

:coffee: We are now in Tier 5. Take care,
Endure what you must.
Help others if you can, and stay safe.BB

It is however sort of Rare item, but by no means an expensive 1980/s Figure
Farm Fresh. Played with condition i bought two :thumbup:
:eh: A bit like waiting for a bus, :sst: then two turn up at the self same time.

From
Monster In Your Pocket by MEG TOYS

The Org! A figure i've only seen on an advertising list from back in the day and of course in awful yucky green,so one is better than one and getting two is a certain kind of bonus i just hope they ain't nibbled upon. :coffee: BB

An interesting question Peter. :thumbup:
Most certainly Charles Perrault the author of Tales Of Mother Goose, would have known.
He wrote of Ogres in fairy tales during the late 17th Century long before Tolkien ever
dreamt of golden magical rings and other hobbit related things. :coffee: BB

Hi Guys,
i had to replace my old Keyboard for a new one it being a needful thing for use here,and elsewhere as letters and words bounce along chapters within story book tales of ripping yarns. However it is difficult to train my fingers in getting used to it. My old type setting thing had a certain kind of magic about it, and served me well for many a year until it finally gave up the ghost and went bottoms up on me like a dead fly on its back.
Anyway this typing is the very first from its service,and dear me it seems very slow in its reaction to my fingers of ongoing imagination. Gulp! i do so hope it will live up to its silent expensive guarantee?
It will certainly need to dash along in my top speed of topsy turvy fun, :sst: which means confused,not well organized and given importance to unexpected things! :mrgreen: Like this Beano Boy?

:coffee: That's right.
Until next time guys,stay safe from that bitter eastern wind blowing out there, BB

Who to bite and suck dry next ? it was thinking!

From 1995
Monster in My Pocket O Scale (as big as my hand. :shock: What!!! )
No122 THE Black Widow Spider,a term of sale not literally exact.


Image

This one is identified as being Catoblepas,from Monster in Your Pocket,but the mythical creature from the, 'Greek', never looked like this. However this figure has certain possibilities within my abstract way of thinking! Which will be seen hopefully a little later in my world of arts and crafts.

May you all stay safe and well. BB

The snow had fallen soft and silent throughout that night,and it was blistering cold
outside where everything had a sparkling sugar coat of white. While within the Fiddle Wood cottage ,without even a hint of a breeze the cobweb in the corner began to move and without any eye seeing it. It came out slowing moving drawn leg by leg towards the light of the PC,in that dark room where far below it someone was typing a story of it.It being a rather rare toy to sit upon my bald shiny head after abseiling silently from the ceiling upon a very spooky dark night.

:coffee: If you have gotten this far upon this topic, you are doing rather well.BB

I liked the MUSCLEMEN better. But that is just a matter of taste, I think. ;-)

Hi Thank you Peter,the how or why we like certain figures and not all i guess are down to the mysteries that one can conjure up in ones own universal mind? The Ogre hunt Spiders for stewing up in a massive great iron pot.
Noodle the Ogre,
could be said of as creating his own pot noodle in ancient far off times?

:coffee: Until the next time.
Stay safe, stay well,
and help others if you can. :thumbup: BB
