Real Life Gary Baseman Toby

Real Life Toby & Super Cooper!

Best. Picture. Ever. Here we have a real life version of Gary Baseman‘s Toby posing with my LA-buddy, Super Cooper. Fun trivia: Baseman first premiered Toby at Billy Shire Fine Arts in 2005, when Cooper was just 6! Awww….

Flash forward to 2011, and last night Baseman signed Toby and other mini-figures as part of Kidrobot’s Toby’s Secret Society release [see photos by Vinyl Pulse]. I can’t wait to check out this set firsthand. Here’s links to a few of my favorite retailers that are carrying it: Dragatomi (west coast), Rotofugi (midwest)…anybody on the east coast?
