The Company

   

A division of ICOM of Japan, Pro-Hobby manufactures tools, fishing bait, wood and glass crafting supplies, and a raft of other random items. They're also a prolific N Scale accessories manufacturer. Their products vary significantly in quality, from finely-detailed etched metal items to crudely-made figure sets that offer interesting glimpses into Japanese culture.

The Figures

These painted cast metal figure sets are sold in folded clear plastic boxes under the name "Micro Life." Made in Japan. Photos are mine.
