Hey Turbo!
Thanks for the heads-up, we got ours. Appreciate the notice here, even though we check Bosko's site from time to time, may have been a while before we did again. We'd of been supremely pee'd if couldn't get this one.

Bosko's last "Bob Tribute" was closer to the original, but long sold out. Had a chance for that one and just hesitated too long...missed out in the end. Saw one at Taboo Cove though, "Turn down that shi**y music!"...sorry, reflex action.

Thanks, Turbogod. I just ordered one as well, and I'd think the item with be OOS soon with a production run of only 40.

That first version was actually very cheap for a week or two, then shot up in price. I kicked myself for not buying it at the cheap rate when it became more expensive, then kicked myself again for not buying it at the higher price when it sold out. Selah!

Now the postage cost to the UK from Bosko is absurd as they have opted out of using the US postal service & use an international courier. (The new mug would cost about $130 once postage & tax is added...bloody hell) Roll on a faithful version by Tiki Farm!

johntiki,
Hey man, no need to fret - you scored an original Tiki Bob's! This one is just an interpretation of the real thing. If I had to choose between the two, I'd still pick the OG Tiki Bob's mug.

Geeze $45... Too steep for me, especially for a new mug.

One for me. One for Tiki-T.

Tipsy Bobs arrived today!

These guys are a lot bigger than I thought and will come in handy in holding a whole lotta grog!

Here some pix on the Stentiki Bar to give some perspective:

Mighty impressive-looking mugs, nay bowls, or something or other. Anyway, they are huge!
Perhaps distorting Tiki Bob's mugs will become as popular as distorting Bob Dobb's face with the creative crowd.

Perhaps "jugs" would be appropriate?

Then you could say, "nice jugs!" Or maybe, "wow, those jugs are huge!"

Sorry, couldn't help myself!

Excuse my ignorance, Woody but who is Bob Dobb?

Cheers,

Arty
