As I was saying about the whole “when-it-rains-it-pours” thing: FERG revealed this little nugget of goodness on his Instagram a couple of days ago, along with the hashtags #ryniak #testpull and #littlemisfortune.

That pretty much sums it up, amirite? So. Series 2 of A Little Misfortune is in the works. But now we’re left wondering: when? Will this be a chase? Does it have the GID eye like the 5″ SDCC version? Is Series 2 an artist series? Clearly the only way to know for sure is if FERG sends me a case to investigate. I’ll be, uh … quality control. Yes, that’s it …

retailer_clear_grey_sqube_box2One of the many reasons I love FERG is because he works in waves. When it rains, it absolutely pours: the Young Gohst sofubi are shipping, the Halloween Playg Docs are shipping, the Ice Sqube just dropped two weeks ago, Squadt Assembly is poised to blast Rotofugi in April, and if that wasn’t enough, there’s the Clear Grey Sqube dropping this week. A retailer release, Playge has already started sending out solicitations to your favourite toy stores, so pre-order opportunities will start popping up soon. Confirmed retailers are listed here.

As the name suggests, the Clear Grey Sqube is clear ABS vinyl and measures 4″ x 4″ x 4″. Official release details to come, but the last retailer Sqube was an edition of 500 pieces and sold for $35, if you’re lookin’ for a ballpark figure.

Following the immense success of Medium War, his Squadt retrospective back in Jan. 2011, FERG returns to Rotofugi this April with SQUADT ASSEMBLY, a new exhibition that will allegedly redefine art and viewer interactivity. While FERG is remaining tight-lipped for now on what he has in store for us CAD freaks, there is still plenty of time for teasers and hopefully plenty more of this (sorry Kirby). ;)

SQUADT ASSEMBLY opens in April 2013 at Rotofugi in the lovely windy city of Chicago, IL. FERG will be in attendance. Keep it locked for more sneaks from the exhibit; we’re just warming up!

Aww yeah, nothing beats the sweet smell of powerupz! Dropping this Monday (10.15) from FERG is K11 BOOMER s001 and the long awaited QPMNT PAC #7 — a tickle trunk of goodies that your Squadts will be dying to get their mitts on.

Killer canine BOOMER s001 includes the head case, two pipe bombs for optimal boomage and black modular harness. QPMNT PAC #7 [Launch Party Upgrade] comes with a wool overcoat and scarf for the oncoming deep freeze, sMAC 10 with removable silencer for pew-pew and RPG to just blow everything into oblivion. The PAC also has an embroidered GERM patch to show your CAD pride. All yours for 75 bucks via the Squadt Store. Goods drop at Noon Central Time and are a limited supply of 200 units. Giddy up!

Unleashing this week from the Playge bastion is FERG’s long-awaited A Little Misfortune series, due to ambush retailers and afflict us with their curse at any time now. The debut blind box series features 16 designs with five chases and one secret chase. And from the looks of this snap, FERG is in perfect form with slick color combos, GID action and killer QC, especially for 2.5″ figures. Surprised? Me neither. Available as singles and cases of 25, the killer kitties will be around 10 bucks a box. Good fortune to you …

Night vision goggles. It’s one of those choice accessories that work so well with a Squadt you wonder why it’s only now that they’re being added to the arsenal. No matter: FERG’s Jack s003 [Fort Burnout – DSRT] Squadt is packing a pretty sexy pair and the figure is now up for grabs from your favorite purveyors of toy goodness.

Tri-lens goggles aside, Jack comes with all the usual bells and whistles: modular tactical vest with assorted pouches, Fort Burnout shirt (hidden under there somewhere), bandana, sUMP w/red dot and suppressor, tanto knife with Velcro sheath, classic and 2.0 articulated arms, smoke and yellow lenses and a removable helmet. That’s a whole lotta kaboom for $95. Want one? Giddy up.

The kitties are coming! The kitties are coming! FERG just recently posted this gorgeous snap of his upcoming Misfortune Cat blind box series on his Instagram (@fergbag), which are due out for release mid-September. Measuring in at 2.5 inches, there are 16 designs in total. Ten are revealed between these two photos, leaving a half dozen to our imaginations for now.

This will be an incredible companion series to FERG’s Young Gohst subscription series, which is due to start bombing mailboxes any time now. More info soon — stay tuned!


Oooooh, things just got a little chilly up in he-yuh!!

The next iteration of FERG’s Fr0g species is s003 [Frozn Whole] with K11 companion. I seriously cannot get enough of this series, s001 & 002 blew me out of the water (literally) and to see Fr0g all pimped out Frozn Whole style has my head swimming in my own drool.

As always, these beasts come equipped to the teets; Fr0g packing a wetsuit with threedot camo pattern, air tanks, removable rubber flippers, spear gun, sMP5, tanto knife, 2.0 articulated and OG arms and removable helmet.  K11 Spot includes a wetsuit with pouches, rubber flippers and a removable helmet.

The release is set to blow at 12 noon central time THIS MONDAY, Aug. 13 via the Squadt Store. This is an edition of 200 — yes, another small run — and retail for $115 a set.

If this is anything like the Frog s001 release, we’re looking at a sellout-in-120-seconds scenario, troops. Stay frosty!

Here we go again!

Hot on the heels of the explosive exit of FERG’s Fr0g s001 + K11 SPOT comes their retail counterparts, s002 + K11 SPOT. Featuring insanely sexy orange accents, s002 comes packin’ all the same toys and is ready to stir up some chaos, deep-sea style.

Fr0g includes an orange/black wetsuit, removable air tanks (they’re velcro, so freaking cool), rubber flippers, spear gun, sMP5, tanto knife, 2.0 articulated and ‘classic’ arms and removable helmet.

K11 SPOT comes sporting a doggy wetsuit with pouches, rubber flippers and removable helmet.

ETA of Fr0g and SPOT is very soon; hit up your favourite Squadt retailer for a release date. The set will likely be around $115. Sweet mother I’m stoked.
