The Jada D&D metal miniatures look the business.

:lol:

A mate, who collects everything - comics, Movies, posters, stamps, military memorabilia etc. was once told by his wife that she thought it would be cheaper, and a lot more manageable if he had a drug addiction instead!!!
I think that was my wife.

Ha!

I'm thinking there's too many on the board who it could apply to!

I expect my missus would prefer to come home from work and find me with my knob in the Mazda's exhaust rather than sitting at the kitchen table with this crap.

Firstly, I refuse, REFUSE I SAY, to be swayed by this:

Secondly, I started my new collection of replica skulls depicting human evolution. I started with an archaic dead-end offshoot of one of our forbears, Neanderthal, in particular this splendid replica of La Ferrassie 1:




Australopithecus next I think!

Oh no. I looked! I may on the road to divorce if I break down to buy those. It comes with the skull pictured, right? Right?

Holy shit! I've been eyeing various hominin skulls with greed over the past few months, and had no idea others felt the same. My dream is a nice line of them- from A. afarensis up to H. neanderthalensis, on pedestals in my hallway (I don't really have a hallway) under little glass domes. Sigh.

That one is beautiful.

Are you aware of Artskulls London, Manuel’s work on Etsy? I think he’s on eBay too.

I was recently gifted one of the new 'War for Cybertron' Cyclonus figures.

Maybe the most exquisite Transformer toy of them all. Plasteen perfection.

Recently have been looking for a way to get as much productive writing done away from the laptop a. Because of pesky distractions, we’ve all been there and b. Eye strain, been getting a bad case of it lately.
Looks to be word processors are making a comeback but at £700 a pop thats way off the table, so after a bit of research settled on a relic from my school days, the Alphasmart Neo 2. Like new cost me £60 (plus import grumble grumble) but for a 10+ year old piece of kit works a dream. Solid, solid investment.
