On December 1st 2010, at 6PM London time (1PM EST), Cris Rose will be releasing his Sprogs Edition C(hristmas). For those wondering...Edition B will actually be released in January 2011.
The run will be made up of 15 blind boxes (including 1 Elf Chase) running $35 plus shipping. Also, Cris will be offering up five full sets of 7 figures (6 red, white and silver Sprogs and 1 Elf) that will cost $210 plus shipping. That sums to 50 pieces in Edition C.
New paint jobs are common place for Sprogs owned by businesses who serve the general public; be it at a shopping mall, leisure centre or fine dining establishment. On purchase, many are sold with a "Seasonal Package" which sees them all ushered into the back of a mobile fitting workshop a few times a year and autonomously given a fresh coat of paint to reflect the occasion. A popular option at Christmas time is the "Little Saint Nick" look, sporting bright red livery and little white beards. Some shop owners even go so far as adding tinsel, baubles and little sacks of presents, but this isn't recommended as it really confuses them.
A less popular outfit is the "Snow Covered Elf", partly because most people prefer to see little Santas whizzing about the place, but also because the micro snow accumulators that are stuck to the body are an additional cost and cause them to leave little puddles of melting ice all over the place. So if you catch sight of a little Elf this season, consider yourself very lucky!
