Ever since Ferg first showed teaser images for his upcoming ‘Squadt Assembly show @ Rotofugi (4.5), I’ve been thinking of this one-of-a-kind event as the ‘build your own SQUADT workshop’.  The launch of Rotofugi’s Squadt Assembly mini-site backs that up with a drool worthy preview of the crazy number of options that will be available to in-store collectors at the opening and through opening weekend.

If you’ve ever wished you could get just the ‘right’ Squadt, this is your chance.   The dizzying  yet amazing choices include five basic specimens (bodies) + 1 gallery exclusive, 5 lens sets, 5 tees, 4 buttoned shirts /sweaters, 4 jackets/hoodies, 2 vests, 3 caps, 2 bandanas, 1 backpack, 2 pouch sets, and an unbelievable 8 weapon sets. There are also a few gallery exclusive accessories.   Pricing is $95 for the basic specimen body and range from $5 - $25 for each accessory / add on.  I used the Assembly Preview to configure my dream SQUADT and it came to $170, but hey it’s exactly what I want (or pretty darn close). In addition, there will be plenty of Squadt Assembly apparel and lifestyle items for humans on offer, as well.

For those of us not near Chicago, don’t lose hope.  Roto will offer an online assembly beginning on April 8th featuring stock remaining after the opening weekend.  This will be handled lottery style – be sure to enter now.

At the risk of sounding like a complete fan boy, events like Squadt Assembly are what set the designer toy experience apart from nearly everything else – above and beyond, just because it’s totally cool.
