    Been a fan of Arbito's work for a while now and this piece is such a nice transition of his 2d into 3. Really lovely figure.

    Ahh thanks so much for the kind words guys. I was just going to post a blub here about the figures, but it looks like Abe beat me to it. Thanks Abe!
    I've gotta say this Hobo was a challenge to put together. 5 peices with "magnet arms". I didn't want the arms to break off if the hobo took a fall, so the arms are held in place by strong magnets. Plus side is they are somewhat positionable.

    It's time for me to cast more Hobo's.
    FYI I brought 3 Hobos back from Brighton with me. They are marked "Brighton" and are numbers #7 #10 and #8.

    Yes there should be two of the original 10 Brighton Hobos available from Toylife In Brighton UK.
    They ship internationally and the price includes shipping. http://www.toylife.co.uk/shop/item/?167 Not sure what numbers they have left. I'm guessing #6 and #9

    Also I'm working on single custom Hobo for a group art show on Saturday here in Seattle. I'm excited to paint him in a new color scheme. I'll post pictures on my news page tomorrow. :)
