Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
TIM’s Mid Week Miniature
This weeks mini as an Artizan figure which goes by the title Group Captain Villain and features in their Thrilling Tales range. The model has an uncanny resemblance to Dick Dastardly which made him a must do figure in my book. Crooked Dice also do a Dick Dastardly figure along with Muttley the dog, both are on my shopping list.
I ordered some new figures the other day and they arrived safe and sound. Although they wont jump to the top of my painting pile just yet I was nevertheless keen to open the package and check that the contents for each were all present and correct. Needless to say included in the packaging was the usual safety disclaimer about containing small parts, that the item wasn’t a toy and it wasn’t suitable for small children as it contained choking parts.
Now in my younger days such disclaimers never existed which got me thinking why that was. I am sure there are several reasons why we didn’t have them but one over riding conclusion came to mind. We weren’t that fucking stupid!
What Do Miniatures Get Up To When Your Back Is Turned?
With the release in the UK of Toy Story 4 I thought this would be a good time to show you what miniatures get up to behind our backs.
This week TIM has been listening to …
… Safety Dance (Dance Mashup), not the original by Men With Out Hats (although I like that too).
Two things I always wanted to be was a great dancer and a pianist. Some where along the line the dream was lost in the womb and instead I was blessed with a great penis. That’s the way the cookie crumbles I guess.
Meanwhile I have to listen to great music and watch others gyrate.
This week TIM has been watching …
… Gran Torino starring Clint Eastwood. Now I must say I am a Clint fan but the guy is getting on in years now. Not only is he looking his age but he has gone soft. How do I know this? A young Clint whatever the moral of the story would have killed all the little fuckers at the end.
Until next time.
