SDCC 2013: Dragatomi (Part 1)

It goes without saying that Dragatomi had one of the busiest booths in the designer toy section during SDCC. There always seemed to be something going on there (usually a signing) and if there wasn't, there were plenty of cus...

by Natalie Kipper

For the last couple of weeks, we had been leading up to the Cavey's American Cousins pop-up gallery, the first show for the brand in the United States. Each of the handmade plushes in the show were designed by American artists (hence the title). In this first part of the coverage, we will look at six of the twelve artists represented: 64colors, Angry Woebots, Beast Brothers, Camilla D'Errico, Chris Ryniak, and DrilOne.

Well? What are you waiting for? Read on to see what these amazing plushes looked like up close.

DrilOne, Cris Rose launch Decommissioned Sprogs
by Brian Szabelski

Spotted on toysrevil, DrilOne and Cris Rose have collaborated on a new series of limited-edition Sprogs! As the story goes, DrilOne has purchased some decommissioned military bots from the Cris Rose factory that never saw combat. The bots feature a mix of designs (all painted by DrilOne), with seven Soviet bots, 10 aqua-colord U.S. training bots, 12 U.S. bots and a special chase of a Rotund Mk2 that had been intended for chemical warfare. 

The Decommissioned Sprogs are available right now blind-boxed on DrilOne's store for US$80 each. Only 30 of them have been made, and while I like the design a lot, I'm not sure if I'm going to pick one up. What do you think of these, Tomopop readers?
