Rocket Craft: This one time in autoshop...

It's true, the plushie world has left owlies and cupcakes behind. Well maybe not forever, but our new favorite branch on the stuffed creature tree is definitely the super replica cars and automotive parts of Rocket Craft.
Originally brought to our attention by Jalopnik (yeah? so we're obsessed with cars), Rocket Craft operates out of Sapporo, Japan. Their creations aren't just off the shelf either. Rocket Craft carefully crafts exact replicas of you ride. Of course it's a big hit back home in Japan, but just think of the possibilities. Personally we're dreaming of cuddling up with a stuffed version of our very first car.
So, in celebration of this new branch on the crafting tree, Marimello is offering a prize in the form of a feature post to the first crafties who can identify not just the engine type featured in the upper the left, but what model it replicates. And special bonus to any one who sends in a pic of their own plushie machines.

Digg!

Suzuki Katana motor. Search for this at EBay to see tech pics suitable for real auto shopettes.

Love the soft vehiculars at the Rocket Craft site. I want a choo choo.

Daddly finally got to reading the blog and it's nicely nice. Don't quite understand what to make of the right side column of warshers and other cloth stuff.

...and there's the old Chevy, all shiny like Grampa left it, before the keys got loose and it drove itself off into the back country of wherever...
