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

Made in Japan, these painted cast metal figure sets are sold in folded clear plastic boxes (or, in a few cases, blister packs) under the name "Micro Life." Photos are mine except for the first three.
