SDCC 2014: Rotofugi

Rotofugi's SDCC booth was lighter on the exclusives this year, but the ones they did have were a little bigger deal. First, there's Tristan Eaton's new Floral Pleasure Bot for Kidrobot, which has a pretty nice design ... but ...

Jamungo have announced a few exclusives for SDCC, and specifically, they've given us info on their Rotofugi exclusive, Redjack. The newest Squadt army member includes two sets of arms (classic and 2.1 versions), a shotgun with translucent red accents, grey cap, hoodie, and removable helmet, but it otherwise a pretty standard version of the Squadt Jack figure.

A total of 125 are being made, with 75 at SDCC and 50 being saved for members of the Collect and Destroy forums. Specifically, 15 will be available at Rotofugi's booth (#5248) on each day of the convention for US$135 each.

In addition to that exclusive, Lulubell's booth (#5047) is going to be home to some new Young Gohst sculpts, micro-run figures and one-off customs. So it sounds as if you're a Jamungo fan/obsessive Squadt collector, you'll have some busy work to do to grab everything they might have at SDCC.

Misfortune Cat is back with a New Years version

Misfortune Cat is back in a new colorway, this time a neon green and white New Year's version. It's the same Misfortune Cat as before, 8 inches tall and still stabbing itself in the head with a sword. The tongue is also a translucent neon green PVC, like he drank some radioactive milk. Want one? They're US$85 each, an edition of 150 pieces, and available at the Playge shop.

Halloween brings us a new Playge Doctor Squadt from Jamungo, the s003 [TREATS]. So what does the little fellow come with? Besides being cast in flat black, with a black wizard cloak that has the Playge logo patterned on it and a removable plague doctor's mask with translucent orange eyes, s003 [TREATS] comes with ... well ... candy? Technically, they're Playge candy treats, coming inside a special black canvas carrying bag. Oh, and you get a lovely translucent orange vinyl katana and sword cane, to boot. Playge Doctor does not mess around, it seems.

Want to pick one up? They go on sale very shortly at noon Central (1 p.m. Eastern, 10 a.m. Pacific) in the Project Squadt store for US$95 (includes shipping). There's 200 of these being made, which is a bit more than the 100 for last year's Halloween special Squadt.

Jamungo's Squadt series just dropped a new three-pack of figures this afternoon, the Frozen Whole K11 pack. Limited to 200 pieces (with 50 as yellow snow chase variants), the set of 4-inch vinyl figures features ROVR, SPIKE and FIDO, each with their own little helmets, jackers and modular harnesses. 

The bad news? Almost as soon as they've gone up today, they've sold out. That seems to happen a lot with the Squadts, but more designs will be on the way soon, including Trouble Boy #7, Squadt Fr0g and the K11 Boomer, so stay tuned for info on those!
