One 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!
It appears FERG is queuing up some icy goodness just in time for the holiday season. Revealed recently on his Instagram account (@fergbag) is the Ice Sqube, the newest addition to the 4″ series since the clear orange version last April. An edition of 200 pieces at $55 each, they’ll be available on Monday, Dec. 3 at noon Central via the Playge shop.
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!

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.
It’s official: the boys have touched down in Japan and Shinji at Tomenosuke has announced that Trouble Boy No.7 [Drifter] is releasing at MIDNIGHT Japan Time on June 16th for $150 USD. Given that this is a retailer release, shipping is likely extra. The edition is limited to 150 so prepare yourself for an Olympian-level race, folks!
Also: be sure to check a time zone calculator to determine the release time for your region. I’ve linked one here.
Continuing last week’s coverage of FERG’s CHIPP s004 and Boomer comes the full shebang on this sweet new series, dubbed [Fort Burnout – DSRT].
First off: hot damn. Look at the utter MAGNIFICENCE of this Squadt + K11 combo: interchangeable smoke and yellow lenses; a ton of gear including a tactical vest w/ pouches, totally pimp b&w bandana, Fort Burnout shirt and the overly impressive pew-pew power of a sMK23 w/ holster and SM4 w/ red dot suppressor.
And that’s just CHIPP.
Boomer, on the other hand, lives up to his name with a head case packing two pipe bombs. He also has a harness (aka ‘the treat pouch’).
These two will be making their exit via the Project Squadt store this Monday, May 28th at noon Central for $115/set. There are 200 of them. Hope y’all haven’t taken off for Memorial Day; it’s time to polish the crash helmet!!!
Next up from the Project Squadt stable is CHIPP s004 & K11 Boomer, a killer new combo and first-ever production release of the [Fort Burnout] series of Squadts. Pimped out with desert fatigues, multi-pocket loadout and pipe bombs, CHIPP & Boomer are ready for the sandstorm.
The set is limited to 200 pieces and tentatively scheduled for release May 28th, likely via the Squadt Store. Price is TBD but similar packs went for $115. Looking forward to seeing what kind of heat CHIPP’s packing, as well as these fabled yellow lenses (Ooo!).
And for those who may be wondering: the previously-announced K11 companion for GERM is still in the pipeline — he’ll be released later along w/ some new QPMNT pacs (Ooo!). Stay tuned!
