Cris Rose Rotund Mk2 Release March 2nd...!!!

Cris Rose Mk2

Rotund Mk2 is a 4" original resin robot by Cris Rose, featuring 3 interchangeable heads. Timed for the second anniversary of the original Rotund's release in 2009, two colourways will be made available March 2nd.

Rotund Edition A is a run of just 12 bots in the same autumnal yellowy-orange as Sprogs Edition A, each one coming with one clear head and two heads with black eyes.

Rotund 2 Year Anniversary pack is a run of just 5 Rotunds and includes a matching Radcliffe Sprog, both sporting the original Dirty Copper colourway. The same three heads as Edition A are packed with this Rotund, tho the heads are sporting bright white eyes.

Rotund Edition A (run of 12) is priced at $85 plus shipping
Rotund 2 Year Anniversary pack (run of 5 Rotunds and 5 Radcliffe Sprogs) is priced at $140 plus shipping

Both colourways will be available on Wednesday March 2nd @ 18:00 London time on my webstore crisrose.bigcartel.com. As always, my mailing list subscribers will have a 24 hour advanced ordering window.


"Rotund Mk1 was a companion robot designed with small children in mind, playful and simple, yet robust enough to take anything a day's play could throw at him.

Rotund Mk2 was never intended as a replacement for the Mk2, but as a companion robot for the teenage years once the Mk1's childish charms had been outgrown. Still solidly built, this 4 foot sidekick had a knack for being able to vary roles on the fly through a swift head-swap or two. The classic see-through projection dome of the Mk1 endured, a teaching aid able to display holographic representations of the study material in question (or the latest holo-thriller if correctly "tweaked"). Some new additions included a friendly-faced companion head for fun times and hijinks and a stern, multi-spectral security head to monitor the halls or enforce a curfew. The latter also had some sweet wide-angled lenses perfect for shooting skate vids for HoloTube.

Rotund Mk2 came with these 3 heads as standard, but as the unit became popular, demand for varied and unique applications ensured some interesting models became available."
