Feels good to get some transparency. Thanks for that Ferg.
I really hope the best „to make Squadts great again“. Wink

Regarding the subscription, I think its a great idea for those who want every release, however me being picky/particular as I am, I know there will be releases I do not plan on picking up so it would defeat the purpose (for me at least). If there was an option to sign up and then maybe opting in and out of certain releases I'd be all for it. Looking forward to future releases. bow


As for me, I am with Charly - because I was collecting with special focus regarding colour scheme, specimen, personal mood, room atmosphere, etc.
I hope there will be also a option for loyal long time collectors to be part of the game in the future.

Thank you very much again for keeping us up todate.
I admire your closeness and your fan proximity.

Unique idea with the subscriptions, definitely something I'd be interested in myself since it would keep me from missing releases.

Excited about the new stuff coming, I don't know if my wallet can handle another 20" but I'd love to try for it.
Congrats on ironing everything out Ferg, happy to hear things are picking back up.

Here's to another successful run.

Woohhoo! I'm just so pleased that there are going to be new Squadts on the horizon! Can't wait.

Love the PF. I'll definitely be making a homage to the original PF custom with a white TB helmet mashup.

As to a subscription, I'm down for that, would be nice to know that all the exits are taken care of throughout a year. I guess that people who didn't wish to subscribe would still have the same kind of method to just buy whatever they wanted through squadt store release etc.? Obviously plenty of time to work out the details though and I'm sure Ferg & Roto will take care of everyone as they've done in the past.

Thanks for the update Ferg

Just hope the new partnership will have an easy transition and able to produce collectibles from our favorite artist (Ferg)

does threezero have the rights to the old squadt molds? so are we maybe looking at a new type of mold for the squatds?

Excited to see what this new partnership brings. My one selfish recommendation-

Fill the next year with merch and prints and pandemic hoodies and I'm just fine with waiting for new squadts.

Wow this is amazing news! I am very excited! Especially because I have so much respect for the amazing people at Rotofugi as well (also I live close to roto soooo)

Can't wait to see what other squadts are in store for us.

Regarding subscriptions:

First, I am pretty new to Squadts, in fact seems like I have jumped in at a bad time, after attending the amazingly well run 20th assembly, where I got my first and second Squadts, hasn't been anything else! lol!

That being said, I don't know how I feel about a subscription model. The collector in me really likes to have everything, but also I know that's not really good for my wallet and also, while I really like the look of Squadt's not every single one has appealed to me; for example, I don't really care for the look of the Terror Boys stuff, don't get me wrong, I think they look super neat, but it's not my cup of tea.

Another factor for me personally is frequency. I think it might be nice to find out that sweet spot with how many releases are in a year. Obviously I like more stuff, but other times with other things I collect (Negora by Konatsu at the moment) I feel like there are like sooo many at certain times of the year and I'm like whyyyy, I want them all yes, but also I kinda want a break (or maybe my wallet does), I think for me, 1 a month or something is just too much.

Someone else mentioned a club like idea, where membership is limited and members get first crack at stuff. I do like this idea. I wouldn't mind paying a fee that doesn't go to future toys for securing a "spot early in line" so to speak. A lot of breweries do similar stuff in the ever hype expanding craft brewing scene.

Thanks for the update Ferg (and Kirby)!  Excited to know that there is still going to be a future for Squadts.

As someone who only really collects Squadts and no other figures, I'm into the idea of a subscription.  Not quite into the idea of paying for a full year upfront, if that's how (I imagine) it would be handled.  But I have been a die-hard collector since almost the beginning, so I'm intrigued at the idea of being guaranteed all Squadt drops without having to F5 frantically every release.  Smile

I trust you guys to come up with a fair solution, but appreciate that you want to gather feedback from the fans.

Very excited about Peace Fucker Monday morning.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop as always Ferg, Love that PF What a Face

A bit off topic; but would it be possible to have releases later in the day? like 3pm Central?  
I know it's hard to please everyone but these 3:00am wake up calls are getting hard!! Sleep

Thanks for the updates!
Are right for an membership as ThreeA have been subscribed for 4 years. Then given the many ongoing monthly releases, I said just buy ThreeA.
The ideal of a release for me one every two months. so you have a chance to save money.
I'm sorry for the end of the company along with ThreeZero, great teacher. Together you gave origin to an eye-catching designer, perfect in all its parts. Congratulations bonghit !
Ferg + Squibbles Ink + Roto clap What a Face Very Happy
For the future, good luck! We will always be with you, I wish you all the best in this world.

Been a quiet day around here despite the first Squadt drop in a long while. Personally, I got two and am looking forward to the direct release - although I hope it's at least a couple weeks out so I can let my wallet heal. ahhhh!
