Time for some more tat from the archives. Here’s a real gem for you.
Description: Ceramic model of the A-Team misery guts, designed to save your coins.
Cost = can’t remember, but only about £1.
Bought at: Charity shop in Chester many years ago.
Reason for buying: It’s a fairly accurate rendition of B.A Baracus, well made and makes a nice ornament. And I love The A-Team.
Mr T stands about 16cm tall, and is quite striking with the gold colouring. This piece has often proved very desirable, with one of my friends making me promise to leave him this item in my will. I think he was joking.
Sheer tat or 1980’s retro chic? It’s bad, but it’s so cool too. And no, I’ve never taken him on a plane.
I see he has no arse. Which may go some way to the constipated expression.
Coins can fall out of the bottom!
Effort. I’ll tell you what was rubbish, the A Team film that’s what!
Indeed, a wasted opportunity. Even Faceman himself declared they’d missed the point a bit with that film. Dirk said they should’ve made it a comedy with Ben Stiller – like Starsky and Hutch.
Ironic that the (originally) more serious series was remade as a comedy movie whilst the A-Team – big, silly kids’ stuff – tried to be more grown up.
There’s a wasted blog article right there.
He looks like he’s trying to pass gas…that’s terrible.
