The Blot is really excited for “Bits n Bytes,” an all new series of resin robots from Cris Rose. Featuring 6 popular Sprogs (these are the Bits) and 2 versions of Rotund (the Bytes), these mini resin figures are the first to be offered in solid colored resin and in 1/24th scale (instead of the regular 1/12th). Standing at a delightfully cute 1-2 inches tall, every single detail and proportion of their larger brothers is completely replicated, down to the Sprogs 2mm tall crowns.
Bits n Bytes will come bagged with header cards in packs of 2-8 (depending on the release), and will come in "Palettes" (instead of sequential Editions) offering several colors per release. For example, a Sunset Palette may offer bots in shades of pinks, orange and blues, while a Space Palette may be black, grays and silver. Some will be distressed with scrapes cut into them, others pristine and fresh from the mold…the selection of bots will be quite random, but you'll know the colors in the Palette and how many Bits and Bytes you’ll receive. Sounds like a pretty ingenious concept doesn’t it!?! Cris really out did himself with this upcoming series and its unique configurations.
The prices for Bits n Bytes will be confirmed when the first Palette goes up on Cris Rose’s online store, but expect several min figures for the price of a regular 1/12th Sprog. There will also be a limited number of DIY packs on sale in the near future for those with creative leanings, so keep your eyes peeled on the Cris’ online store for his first ever blank release! The first Bits n Bytes Pallettes will go on sale at the Cavey 1st Birthday show on Thursday , May 26th. There will 10 goodie bags available, each with a 2 pack inside, as well as some in Cris’ pockets to give out to those that find him and say hello!
