Hobart Scrappers

Here's how Justin "Scrappers"Morrison describes the character:

He’s based on a Hobie surf monster t-shirt I had as a kid (my son wears it now). I designed the toy and sent it to Naoya of Gargamel to sculpt and cast. It’s a collaboration we have been taking about for a couple years, but none of my designs clicked till this one. In all honestly I have never held a resin cast figure that is this professionally made and full of joy. Naoya is a master!
