Both Mikey and other people on the forums have said that there will be a new and bigger version of the hybrid nest.

The release of the seven different species designs of Hybrid Nest will be staggered. The first design, Formica, will be coming out toward the end of this month (February). Others will follow. We anticipate to have all of them available in April sometime.

Are these going to be a complete redesign or just large versions? Will you still be able to buy the current ones on the site? I want to get another small hybrid for an idea I had, but I don't need it right this second. I would buy it now however if you are planning on discontinuing them.

The plan is to discontinue the current model as the manufacturing method is too slow. We will offer one generic design in a small size (similar in size to the current Hybrid Small).

Thanks for asking. There have been a few issues that came up in the design that we are working through. Our hope is that we can get them resolved and have at least the first design, Formica, available in April.

Just wondering if the plan to release the first new hybrid nest in April is still the plan?

The schedule has been pushed out, but just a little. We will be doing a production run on the new Formica Hybrid toward the end of this month, but they won't be available in the store until mid to late May. (That is the latest plan...)
