Just got a Boycie and an Uncle Albert to my collection. £1.99 each.

They had a large golden Del.

The chant in Saturday morning cinemas was apparently 'Lovely Jubbly, lovely tubs of orange juice...' which was a signal for a hail of the things to be launched at the screen or one's fellow juvenile cineastes. I think that Sullivan was talking shit.

Mr Banlon

I would have bought one of the large golden Del Boys or Rodneys but the customers of Home and Bargain were worshipping and praying to them.

That's astonishing. I would have sworn it was there from the beginning.

Mandela Effect?

You can buy a model of Cassandra's red VW Golf for £14.99. No offence to the character, but that's a bit niche for OFAH merch.

Unconscious association with dip sticks.

What is a 'chase variant' when it's at home?

Hang on, the complete gold set is on Amazon for a mere 26 pounds!

An uncharacteristic scowling expression from Terry Thomas, but maybe it's because he's struggling to get a grip on that glass.

Chase variants are limited alternate versions of the main product which usually ship at a rate of one or two per case. The term comes from either comic or toy collecting if I'm not mistaken. I can't remember the origin of the phrase though, or why it's still used. Seems to have evolved beyond its etymology.

The 'Show Pieces' variant Alan Moore one is pretty boss to be fair.

Those gold Only Fools and Horses figures look awful. Who buys them?

Did Rodney ever wear a jacket with three studs per pocket? Or whatever they are.

They may as well have carved four turds in the shape of the OFAH characters and encased them in plastic.

I'm baffled too. The standard versions, though still horrible tat, are slightly more appealing.



At least you can tell who it is. I think the gold versions are appealing to the same kind of people who think something being gold makes it more prestigious, like a gold iPod. It doesn't quote ring true with a plastic bobble head.

OFAH isn't the only classic show to get the horrible bobble treatment:

Is the Corporal Jones bobblehead having a shit?

The ARP warden looks like he's going to punch someone. Maybe he's seen Jones having a shit.

Terry Torpid

I feel sorry for the sculptor. As tacky as the end result is, it must take some skill. You want to be an aritst, but you end up making this rubbish.

"I saw the ARP Warden in the marble, and carved until I set him free."
