I’m always amused about the amount of rubbish that gets thrown up for sale linked in some loose way to the mod scene – clothing, furniture, iPod covers – you name it, it’s out there. But there’s always something round the corner that makes you drop your head in your hands and despair.
This fella is called Mod Simon and is available from high street mod retailer Merc for the princely sum of £15. For that you get a plastic figurine with movable arms and head, who stands approximately 4 inches tall.
He’s joined by his youth cult friends Rudie the rudeboy, Big Gary (he’s a skinhead) and Kev the punk.
The point is made that these toys are not suitable for children under 6 years old. I would add that they’re not suited to blokes in their 20s or 30s either.
