Behind the Scenes at Obitsu

You may already know that Obitsu is the brilliant toy manufacturer behind the Circus Posterus+Tomenosuke line of sofubi – and if you know that, then you also know that their workmanship and detail is pretty much unparalleled!

The Circus Posterus crew was lucky enough to visit the Obitsu factory, where they got an up-close look at the vinyl manufacturing process and store manager Mikee Riggs realized a life long dream of pulling vinyl(hey, we all have slightly weird things on our bucket list, okay?). Here’s some pictures from the trip!
