Tobacco Pete 5 inch Mini Qee by Pocket Wookie

Tobacco Pete 5 inch Mini Qee by Pocket Wookie

June 2012 - Toy2R - In 1867, the Marquess of Queensberry rules of boxing were drafted by John Chambers, forever changing the sport. One fighter who refused to change with those rules was a south paw fighter known as Tobacco Pete. A scruffy and rough man, whose eventual claim to fame would come from his challenge to fight any man, any beast, any time! Truly a man to reckon with considering he was hailed as the King of the Ring!

Artist and customizer Pocket Wookie steps into the ring with this new Artist Mini Qee design. Using the Mini Qee Mon platform, Tobacco Pete is ready to go the distance.

Get ready to cheer for a champion when this Mini Qee punches his way out in August with an SRP of $28.00.

See why its good to let the Wookie win: http://www.pocketwookie.com/index.html
