Plush Survey: Winner Announcement!

The voting has concluded, and the winner is…the Catsack!

Cornelius the Dragon was a very close second, only within 40-ish votes.

If our first campaign is successful, the demand is clearly there for Cornelius next time!

We’ve started working with Makeship on the Catsack design, and will post more details as we get closer to revealing the campaign.
