The new year 2022 had been blasted with a surprise collab in session for Fontaine. After 2 years planning, it thought to will never happened, until there is a greenlight. Fontaine had managed to get an agreement with Viacom CBS for the Fontaine X SpongeBob collab. Here are all of the sneak peeks.
Fontaine X SpongeBob Ad-Card features the iconic painting of a pirate and his parrot which always can be found saying the opening lines in the TV series. Judging from the rainbow sheen, it is rumored it might be printed by LPCC. UPDATE - The deck will be printed by USPCC, although is it possible that they can do Holographic Foil, because 1st Holo is printed by them.
Ace of Spades featuring Squidward's Even More Handsome Face - In the episode "The Two Faces of Squidward", SpongeBob accidentally slams the door on his face, causing it to deform his face to a handsome appearance, making entire Bikini Bottom crazy for him. In an attempt to bring Squidward back to normal, SpongeBob makes him even more handsome. The text and pip are customized to follow the font style from the series.
More Court Cards are revealed, along with the Jokers and the other Ad-Card. Other than Squidward, the deck will feature SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Sandy Cheeks the squirrell, Mr. Krabs, Gary the Snail.
More Court cards are revealed. It appears that the Diamond suit will hosts two characters instead of only one: Mr. Krabs and Sandy Cheeks.
The brickbox for this deck is shaped to be Squidward's house - moai statue. It is a standing brick box, so possibly the decks in there will be stacked like blocks of Jenga, or simply just how it used to be stored.
Another variant of the Brickbox for the deck - this one in shape of SpongeBob's house - pineapple. It's a squarish box with a pop-out portion on the back to present the top of the pineaple, the leaves with the title.
Two brickboxes stand side-by-side. SpongeBob's house - the pineapple and Squidward's house - the moai statue. You can either choose one from the two OR get both.
For every acquisition of a brick, you get the exclusive Holo edition of SpongeBob deck printed by LPCC
The cards will be printed by USPCC on premium crushed stock. There is the exclusive Holo edition which are printed by LPCC - you can only get it if you secured a brick.
Release Date: January 15, 2022
Good News - The decks will be on Pre-Order: You can choose either SpongeBob's pineapple house OR Squidward's moai statue house OR BOTH! Maximum 2 of each variants - total up to 4 bricks per person
Bad News - Due to the regulations of Viacom and Nickelodeon, there are no shipping to International, so the decks are only for USA. International has to go to trusted US retailers or go for forwarding services.
This deck will definitely hit the nostalgia for most people, as it is a cartoon TV series people grew up with in the era of Televions.
