i must say that im soooooo glad to finaly see talented boardmembers / customisers getting a chance to make production figures..... im also glad to see the figures turning out so incredably! this wave of stackable figures looks INCREDABLE!
betso has put in his time and definatly deserves this.

ooooh an artist wave!!
i can think of tons of tallented boardie's who would love to get in on this!
for example motorbot most definatly deserves a prodction toy by now
and i know id love to do a zombie monkie (seeing how you have a monkey figure in the first wave).

on a completly seperate topic.... about a week ago i was walking home from work down haight st. and i look down to see a tiny piece of betso art smiling up at me!!
it was right outside the school on haight and masonic... it was a little tiny blue rabbit and it MADE MY DAY!

good luck on these figures betso, i know ill be buying a bunch and putting them next to my customs!!

thats him!
i was shocked to see him. its the only piece of yours ive found in the city.
did you paint that on a pre existing raised cement shape?? it looks like its part of that broken cement base thing.
if so you did a great job putting your character on a pre existing shape!

i dont think the one in front of kr is still there, but ill check when i go into work today..... it probaly didnt last very long cause i never saw it.
the one i found looked so perfect there.... if i rember corectly that base you glued it to had other raised details so your addition fit right in!
sucks they all got swiped so quickly.... although i must admit that even i tryed to take the one i found.... i know its shamefull to steel street art, but your little guys are sooo cool, and at least it would have gone to the home of a collector instead of some punk kid who didnt know what he was swiping!
ither way the one i found was glued down quite tightly and wont be moving anytime soon. instead he simles up at me as i walk home each day... much better!

Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere (I didn't see it), but when are you expecting these to drop?

and yah nextime im by the KR one ill add a note for whom ever painted over it!

this is super fun.... now when i walk down the street im actualy looking around for art instead of zoning out to music!

honestly without hints i doubt ill be able to find all 14. its a big damn city with tons of little places to glue things..... unless there all in the haight then ill totaly find each one that still exists!
