hello fantastic fans,…

here’s a pic of a rare “timperley rescue sidie” i made back in 1990


these “sidie’s” were about 10 inches tall, a sort of cross between a action man and a garden gnome !!!,… and aswell as the “timperley rescue” ones,… there were also some done in regular grey suit/pink tie.
i gave most of them away to tv presenters and dj’s who helped my showbiz career in the early days,.. a few for magazine competitions/stage quiz prizes,… and sold a few to fans for “11.37p each.
i made about a hundred or so,… and they were all numbered… these now go for a very very lot of money !!! ( i borrowed this one off mr. alston to photograph,.. as i don’t even have one myself !)

i’ve got a ace picture of “me as brains” on ebay
