What is the best WWR bot and why is it the bramble?
Zomb MD goes up tomorrow (finally!) prepare your wallets because he costs $280!
You can always give him a different weapon.
I wouldn't know why, it's pretty much as advertised: One Blocket Lawnchair
As soon as you realize the flaps at the rear don't move you're golden.
I love him, only issues I ever had were joint related, and that's not uncommon for big heavy ash-bots
Got him for $85 (in person, MISB), sure was a bretty good steal at the time.
Man, that's a sick colorway - what was that, retail releases?
Cydonia is my only WWR with a real military/vietnam look, and I'm happy for it, but I do love colors that POP like that one.
Here's my 3A fam for size reference.
He is the second biggest thing I own next to Rex.
Here. It's like a kid-sized M202. It feels pretty good to heft it even as an adult, actually, even if it is technically too small.
Deimos. WWR was sold on Bamba, WWRp was a retail release.
Shit, you got a 1/6 Heavy Bram for $85? That is a ludicrously good deal, I've never seen one go for that cheap. Not even close really, the best deals I've seen were in the $100-150 range before shipping. Hell, some of the Portables have sold for as much as $85. Jesus Christ man.
Deimos is like the least consistent colorway, how are that and the Caesar even considered to be the same?
Also we should start a different 3A general, this is now bramble appreciation general.
I had a really really chill dealer
;_; I've since moved away from him and can no longer get a discount for handing him cash and smoke a bowl with him while we talk about conventions n shit.
He sold me some of these for a twenty spot, I think it was the Strongs but maybe the Martin too... Berties were my first buyin at 45, which I think was retail?
RIP best dealer (relationship)
That's Deimos, not sure if it was retail. They made a portable version too.
Deimos is actually relatively consistent. That colorway used on the Caesar is referred to as "Deimos II," so it makes sense that it's different. You can actually see the "II" right on the chest. Those aren't just arbitrary lines!
World War Robot is started as an art book, with some loose short stories woven in. It's taken on a life of its own outside the book with the toy line.
Also, ash posted a sketch on Instagram, GID Zomb MD incoming. Surprise!
>robot psycic space samurai
>cosmic god robot
>skyscraper sized 3 armed cyclops
>amphibious top heavy robot with no feet
>mecha and fictional robots in general
Your gonna have a bad time if you want realistic robots in anything.
Ash's stuff was never designed to be too serious or practical. All of his stuff is kind of tongue-in-cheek and goofy. That juxtaposition is basically what made his stuff so compelling in the first place--he did these gritty, traditional oil paintings of war scenes with these improbably inefficient robots taking to the battlefield alongside the soldiers. His robot designs have an appeal precisely because so many of them eschew good sense and modern styling, they're big clanky heaps of metal that look like they were cobbled together in a metal shop circa WWII.
aparently the zomb medic is 260$ to people not in the club now, and the white zomb chick is 120$ now.
Just a heads up for anyone who was planning on buying.
It was on 'ashleywoodart' which he's just using for paintings and sketches, and the new 'wedonttalkaboutlove3a' account is the upcoming figure teasing account now. The worldof3a account is just the same promo shit from the blog and reposted photos from legion folk, the other two is where the interesting stuff is.
Caved and ordered the 2pack. Budget be damned. Noodles it is.
Also a secret drop nurse. Looks like the 3AA nurse with a different skintone.
no no, I'm very happy with both. Was just trying to budget responsibly and pass. That resolve lasted about 6 hours before I went franticly searching for (and found) wiggle-room in my budget
So I ordered my first ThreeA figures (TK Ninja Dark & Zomb MD) recently, and as a European I'm wondering what customs taxes are going to look like for these guys.
Does anyone have experience with that?
lass, and wu. that's all. was going to get marquis, but I decided I didn't want him last minute. Was wanting to get Iron man, but he's all rubber, so I'm not interested. I really wish I could've been though.
Did get an ascended BC from a fellow collector.
Anyone getting the Iron man?
Picked up my first 3A with AK Cold Merde 1/6, haven't taken him out of the blister yet but does he really come with 8 fucking guns? Also I paid £90 for him, did I get fleeced or does that sound fair?
>Anyone getting the Iron man?
I'm considering emailing CS and seeing if they'll let me sneak in a late order for either a classic or the EG from the other week. They look great in person but I don't want to pay the retailer price+rape shipping to Ausfag land if I can get it at 3AA price from Bamba. Worth a shot at least.
My orders this year have been
GHG Gertrude (Shipped, but hasn't arrived yet)
CNY Drinking Miyu (Shipped ages ago)
Juicy Racing Miyu
Zomb MD & Albino Nurse
I've bought a lot of aftermarket/con stuff sofar this year, too.
will these 1/12 armstrong hands work as a replacement for the unarticulated hands of the 1/12 10 finger gang figure.
That is anime as fuck, can't tell what is going on with that hair though. They should take a look back at the older hairstyles, make something a bit simpler. Still cool though, like they mashed together a slicer and a shogun and gave him an even bigger sword.
I'm gonna need to see some pics of that sir.
I've been on the fence about it since it went up for pre order and long story short the reason I didn't pre order it was because I put the money towards a vacation for me and a now ex, a vacation we never went on because she dumped me before we went. But she didn't dump me before I put money down on quite a few things that were not refundable.
They shipped, gop check the blog. Don't think the 1/12th and the mech shipped though.
>Recently shipped figures and releases (for you to keep easier track of things):
>World Of 7174 Studio 10 years Anniversary figure: MS74
>Kenny Wong x Ashley Wood Seamonkey + Catharine Snowpea set
>GHG Pilots (Kaitlin, Gertrude, Amber, Underverse and Dark Zoom)
>Adventure Kartel Shadow Merde
How much do you think it will cost... last slicer was 140 I think.
It looks like Ashley Wood is sending out the Star Warrior TK to other artists. David Choe posted this on instagram a little bit ago. Im really bummed this almost confirms it wont be on Bamba.
Hopefully it's nothing you want, but I have some bad news regardless.
A new Q and A session is up on the blog. Apparently, 3A Dr.Doom is going up in a month or so, and shipping the same year, if ash is to be believed (probably not).
Other interesting stuff too, apprently, the females for marvel he wants are black widow, madame hydra, and spider woman. Not looking forward to all that fast degrading spandex, but doom should be bitchin'.
I'll admit, I hated ironsmen, but DOOM looks proper dope
I could pass on all of that if I could have just been able to secure a MG Ray for nonrapedollars
I'd settle for a blind cowboy too
I have the ascended blind cowboy, he's a damned ace.
If you don't have one, grab either the OG color, or ascended. I don't like black too much, but I can see the appeal if you like Clint Eastwood in the good the bad and the ugly.
Speaking of in the Q and A, Ash mentions no more blind cowboys, but the bandits that the sock is after. He says they'll have a old west flair. Hope they're good, or not, if I have no cash.
My buddies going to be buying doom through me and my 3AA membership. He's excited for him.
I'm really jealous of my close friend. He and his fiance got an apartment right down the street from this tiny little comic book shop that has a major boner for Ash. They even had a Blind Cowboy in the box for sale, along with some Caesars. I wasn't used to seeing ThreeA for sale in person.
Has this version of Rothchild been released yet, wasn't too keen on the old Darwin but I could definitely get behind this.
Don't sweat it, they're usually over priced in comic shops.
I saw a JDF defense grunt in person in NY, really cool, made me regret not getting that instead of the medic. They had him for sale for 300$ open!
Pretty sure he went up already pal. Check around kidrobot in a few months if you still remember him and want him at all.
What ever it's called. Sometimes it doesn't breakdown, sometimes it does.
The lady shams had some sort of spandex suit, or something like that. They can't move much or it starts to tear, or look bad.
Her suit was great,, at least in black. But this is Ash we're talking about, seamless bodies, nothing ships on time, Ash.
It's either going to be great, or really bad. Or iron man, where you want it, but you know it's going to break. Makes me wonder how he'll do spider man, maybe like the old medicom? How were those anyway?
I got 4 of em that should be coming o_o hopefully I get one of each colorway.
Enjoy getting jewed and receiving four of the same colour because CS think you're a flipper.
Srsly though good luck - hopefully you get the set. I'm not a GID fan so these were easy enough to pass on but fuck I wish I bought the 3AA MiM set now.
Same here so many figures that I don't give a shit about. At least it saves the wallet a bit I suppose.
A little bit before
Sorry I don't remember the dates but I copied this from the forum:
>WWR EVOL Roth release - estimated shipping time - 4th quarter of 2014
>MS 74 figure – premade and shipping out as soon, as possible - shipped out in late July
>Mr 71 figure – estimated shipping time – September 2014
>Adventure Kartel Handsome Wu - estimated shipping time - 4th quarter of 2014
>>I want to apologize for the lateness of the 3AA 2014 set , to be really honest we followed a path for the skinning that didn't turn out to be satisfactory so we had to change direction mid course and rework the technology. This had a knock on effect that pushed the set to a September release, which I know is pretty shit and way off course. The final pack is the best yet and we are all super proud of it, just not the tardiness and lack of info regarding its delay. When your in the trenches with this stuff, the months go by very quick and easy things like updates can go astray! Actually this goes across the board for all late toys, we are looking to give updated info from this point on the status of all toys!
I mean, Ash, we get it that you want to do what others won't but it's been proven that the silicon skin doesn't last long, and looks like shit. Is anyone here a chemist, can you verify the validity of a skin like covering that can last 100 years while permitting articulation?
I don't believe we've seen silicon skin on figures before, hot toys rubber is the kind that cracks easily. Nobody has reported issues with carter yet and he's been out for a long time.
Carter only had partial silicon, right? Iron man had whole limbs coarted in the stuff, and Lass is a thinner female body covered with what I'd imagine in an awfully thing layer.
I don't trust any of that to hold up without tearing, do you?
I feel like after significant amounts of posing, it'll eventually tear. I feel like the quoted post says as much for it's durability. On Doom or Carter I wouldn't worry, since it's joint covers. If they get damaged, it doesn't affect the main figure all that much.
On Iron-Man, it's main body parts. Did he ship yet? I know a few anons picked him up. A beautiful figure, but I really don't feel like droping money on an ironman that might tear apart when I can get a metal composite hot toys for double.
>>The final pack is the best yet and we are all super proud of it, just not the tardiness and lack of info regarding its delay. When your in the trenches with this stuff, the months go by very quick and easy things like updates can go astray!

>>We absolutely know the greatest asset we have is our fans and supporters, we have spoken at length how we can make the process of being a 3A supporter easier and put a stop to long waits and the like. 2015 will see these changes put in place. We are still finalizing the new way, a balance that will see 24 hour shipping times for some toys and guaranteed short shipping dates for pre-order for others.
Looks like Ash feels bad about not giving us any info. Hope he's finally starting to learn to update his clients! I never mind the delays, but some updates would help if they aren't out on time.
About damn time, it only took half his fan base ripping his customer support team a new one for the last two years practically.
ThreeZero being able to pump the same or better quality products out to buyers on time was making them look bad.
So, 3AGO drop is Wednesday. Pic shows some de Plume's and a TK, but no Hemingway.
Man, I hope Hemingway will be up. I need an Automatic Kafka figure.
oliver is the only cool bramble, fgt
think of all the dropcloths that fight and die with their human counterparts on an individual level in the trenches and shit
all those trooperbots that have got your back down there and shit
>Missing my point
I realize this shit, that doesn't change the fact that 3A is super late consistently while ThreeZero is on time while sharing the same Chinese production facility. My point is Ashley Wood and 3A by proxy somehow screws up pre production and possibly post production make the entire process much much slower.
From what I know it sounds like production goes in multiple phases, they produce the basic components in a factory and then pass those of to the Hatchery for painting and possibly assembly in some cases.
My best guesses are that its a result of Ashes tendency to put up pre orders sometimes using very early prototypes or actual sketches with no form of a prototype even constructed yet meaning they had not even figured out the production model and process. Combine this with Ash constantly changing things mid production/painting because of poor design work which he could have avoided easily by being more realistic with their materials and goals.
ThreeZero seems to stick to safe design decisions and open orders only once a prototype and productional model have been established. And always meet their deadlines because they prevent production problems before they happen and only put up orders once they have the logistics of production figured out.
This the dropcloth 2.0? If so I want a damned nightwatch. Preferably with the armored arms. If it's the mego sized stuff, I don't care.
I didn't miss your point, but the quality would be the same if it's made in the same factory, by the same machines, and the same workers. Just because it's late doesn't mean it's of lower quality. I haven't handled anything as sturdy and well assembled as 3A humans, other than Hottoys, being late doesn't change that.
My friends all shave their pubes and they run from me when I chase them with my helicopter dick so I think that they are scared of pubic hair. I removed it so that they will not run when I chase them with my helicopter dick. Hopefully it works and they accept me for who I really am.
Also it kept wrapping and tying around my dick and giving me insanely bad friction burns.
You are basically correct about the way the companies are run. But what are you gonna do? Kim is more of a businessman, and Ash is like, your stereotypical manic artist. He's a little sloppy and disorganized, and has a billion ideas bursting out of his head that he can't wait to show you. The fact that the two are sister companies provides a very clear snapshot of what it's like when a businessman or an artist are in charge.
>Holy shit they're finally making Hemingway
>Chunky Mego-style body, less articulation than a TrueType
I'm so conflicted. Like, I don't really want it in this state, but I fear if I don't buy it, I may end up waiting forever for a 1/6 Hemingway.
I don't know why I was expecting a depressed writer.
I'm kinda tempted to buy a 3Ago noir de plume. I mean, I have the 1/12, and I'm making a 1/6th, still need a good hose substitute though. But It's expensive for a figure that doesn't scale with anything else I have.
Also 3A is making DESTINY toys, so there's that. Does anyone care though? Destiny's designs kinda looked like shit last I remembered.
You sure he's not getting a 1/6th release? I feel like he will after this thing drops.
Also the de plumes have changed, they have more pouches now, and nom lacks his red goggles. I think they'll be plenty sturdy and well articulated, but I'd have nothing to put them next to, except maybe NECA and PAK.
Still tempting, how much were they going for a piece? 60$?
I dunno, maybe. But I'd hold out for a 1/6 Hemingway if I were already an Automatic Kafka fan.
Wasn't the first 8" DePlume drop $55?
I don't know shit but I'd hazard a guess at $45 since they're releasing so many at once
If it's 45 shipped I may bite. I paid as much for ny noir on the aftermarket.
I guess no more ap releases.
As a side note, anyone know where I could get a hose or something in 1/6 ? I'm thinking Michael's, home depot, or lowes. Not sure how I'm going to shape commercial grade hose though.
I was thinking of that, but I feel it might be a bit cheap looking. If you see anything interesting, let me know pal.
When you're right, you're right pal, except I have 3AA, so it was 38.50 instead, and for that price, I can't say no. I was thinking of picking up Jung for that price too, but I won't have much left in my paypal, after that.
I'm quite tempted though, hope they stay up for a while. I'm actually pretty excited for this endeavor now! They might actually be more in scale with my MLs too. Who knows!
Nice, you got the basic nom? I was interested, but without the red lenses, there's no point to me. DIY and Jung are the only ones I give a toss about, less so for DIY.
Anyone else getting in on these guys? They look sturdier than the 1/12 releases, and quite bulky, which I'm actually a fan of. Also here's a WIP of Noir.
Yeah, standard Nom for me. The lenses are a bit of a shame but I can live with it, will be happy just to have him in my collection in any size.
I wouldn't mind a second De Plume to go with him, but I'll wait for wave two or buy a Noir later.
I agree that the stockier body looks good on the Plumes, but I'm not feeling the TKs, though they've never appealed to me much in any scale really.
Have you considered getting a nom 4th instead? I saw a few for 115$ of so on the kidrobot BST. Sometimes you can catch him for sub 100$ .
If you want to change the lens red once you get him, just paint them silver with a nice even coat, then paint it with a clear coat of red. Finally seal it with some handbrushed gloss coat.
I think the stockier bodies look great on all the figures. I hope he brings this change with him to the 1/6th scale. More body variety at least!
I plan to get a 4th eventually to go with my 1/6 collection, but the 3AGO Nom will be a good desk buddy muck-around toy
And good call on the lenses, I'll dig my silver and clear red out of my gunpla supplies and give it a go when he arrives.
>but the 3AGO Nom will be a good desk buddy muck-around toy
True, although I like the AP version, it's 150$ and I don't think it'll be as durable as this guy. Hopefully you can make it look great with the paints, post here when you do it!
Still waffling on the jung. I mean I could probably resell it if I don't want it, but I really don't want to if I don't have to.
I have a question regarding postage if I buy something from Bambaland. I haven't bought from there yet. How is postage calculated? I live in Australia. Can I have options for postage like $5 super slow and $50 super fast or what? I would like to buy but I'm scared of accidentally not having enough for postage because postage is outrageous and then Ash comes and yells at me and then he tells Kojima about me.
Ash does all that anyway, Kojima is hiring Solid Snake hitmen as we speak.
Pretty sure shipping is included in the price, Ash lives in Aus, so I doubt he'd want to alienate his own customer base.
Buy it, and contact bambaland, ask them if they charge extra for shipping. Pretty sure they don't though fas as I've heard.
What are you ordering anyway?
>When will my order ship and what are my shipping charges?
>Shipping is automatically calculated prior to submitting your payment information. Simply add items to your cart and proceed to the Checkout page where you will be offered Shipping Method choices and their prices. We will ship within the pre-order window. Most products are pre-orders, please read product description for details.
Looks like after you add everything to your cart shipping is automatically calculated for ya. so what you see is what you get! Enjoy pal.
IN OTHER NEWS Ash just dropped the majority of the production list for the next few moths as a show of good faith. Glad I don't want anything, want to cop a nightwatch drop cloth 1.5 if it's available, I remember him saying the clean versions don't exist anymore in EVOL because they all rusted and revealed themselves as nom bots. Hope the Membership figure is really good, or really bad so I can sell it.

I always hated buying things online because I am not a clever man and I get confused very easily.
The only figure I can recall paying shipping for was Barguest and Fantome de plume. They were 45$ each, and had an 8$ shipping fee I think I paid once I went to pay with paypal.
Everything else has been free shipping/shipping calculated in. Hope these figures come in a low profile box.
Yo, fellow Ausfag here - 99% of the time shipping is included in the price, it will be explicitly stated on the product page if it isn't. What you see on the product page is what you pay for it to get to your door by whatever shipping method they decide to send it by (usually standard airmail to Australia lately).
So in this case, that price you see for a 3AGO is all you'll pay. Just leave the order page set to the 'Online Delivery/No Shipping' option.
That list is bonkers. If I can be sensible, it'll only be Beer Isobelle to finish the trio and a Bertie. Hopefully they do a Dirty Deeds version.
I only got him - the Noir looks too much like a monkey to me. I got the 6th anniversary Duo de Plume 3AGO, so I passed on the Noms. TKs aren't my thing, so I passed on those, too.
He is my personal favorite bot, slightly shorter than pops but quite a bit bulkier. I honestly can't think of any cons other than they can be difficult to find. People don't want to let go of them. I recommend the recent veterans releases, classic deep powder and euro defense. They are the most reasonable.
Thank you sir, it's 1/6th scale. I can't find an original, so I decided to make my own 2.0. Besides an original would cost like 500$+
Yeah, I'm super excited, they're the same as the GID molds, right?
>I got the 6th anniversary Duo de Plume 3AGO
I didn't see those for sale, what are they? I also didn't see night and day for sale either. Were they secret? Did they sell out?
Also fucking this. Ash is making a Pascha I actually want. Cowgirl for the cowboy. Even gets a damned poncho! Why Ash, why.
I also just noticed something about the 3AGO figures, the ship date is December. Not next December, THIS December.
This has to be a mistake.
She goes on sale in Spet. I forgot to mention.
Duo de Plume went up for preorder in June.
The Night & Day TK 3AGO set yesterday was a 3AA exclusive.
In the picture I posted, there is the 3AGO versions of Duo de Plume and the DIY de Plume. They were $55 each. Got Duo, and I did not buy the DIY because it was a convention exclusive.
I also did not buy the Night and Day set, because I am not a 3AA member this year.
There was also a secret 3AGO Interloper TK that went up last night, but I passed on it.
Nope, apparently 3A is trying to get their shit together. They used to ship stuff really fast comparatively. Also nobody really wants 3AGO so they probably don't expect to sell as much.
>Also nobody really wants 3AGO so they probably don't expect to sell as much.
I think that's why they priced them dirt cheap, and for that cheap I'd definitely get one. That mentality alone is enough to sell a few hundred units. That and the Hemmingway dick move. Glad Ash is trying to reform his company image, that's mighty big of him.
Noir will be the only one I own in that scale, I think.
The 1/12 heavy Brambles have some trouble with feet that pop off easily and the rocket launchers are so large and unwieldy that they can only really hold them in one position, but otherwise they're great.
No idea. My bet is either some sort of steam punk robot that may or may not be able to capture other figures, or some pasch like girl in a slutty bird outfit with high heels stuck in a cage.
It looks fine on Hemingway and the noms, I can excuse them because helmets and gas masks tend to make a head look oversized.
TKs look a bit squat though, and I can see what you mean. Still, I really like what it looks like.
On an interesting note, the jung de plume copies directly from an old custom on kidrobot's custom borad. One guy did and unpgraded jung as a commission piece for someone, and made the sleeve, helemt, body, and lens just like that.
How many of you guys have actually read any of the stuff this 3A stuff is based off? Adventure Kartel, Popbot, all that. I really like the art I've seen and I've considered reading it. I wouldn't buy it digital though.
Not me, I tried reading popbot. Finished it, Ash was trying to go for a pulp ficiton thing where multiple stories converge into one. Not really like that movie, since it's more of an intersecting thing, but you get my meaning.
Problem is his panel layouts, art, and dialogue make the whole thing hard to read and interpret. Makes for some really nice visuals though.
I hear WWR is a book with pictures.
I mostly enojy the toys for toys sake, as that's what he really embraces, and so do i. Not saying I wouldn't even if he didn't, but his figures are downright sexy, and sturdy.
There's no real media for AK outside the posters yet. Book coming out soon to collect it al though.
I've read Popbot and loved it, but it's not going to be everyone's cup of tea. What annoys me about the toys is that for a book with so many actual characters all we ever see n toy form is TKs.
WWR is an art book first and foremost, with some short stories attached throughout. It really is great though.
This reminds me of ThreeZero getting Micheal Bays TMNT license.
I mean seriously is there a market for this shit? Especially when it comes to Micheal Bay and Halos corpse that both Microsoft and Bungie continue to mutilate.
How many adults are willing to pay the premium price for a shitty license based toy?
I'm just hoping Ash actually sticks to his word and doesn't improve their latency on orders and informing customers more often for a short time before slowly sliding back into old habits. Which I get the horrible feeling will likely happen.
Also I really hope his answer to fixing these issues at least on production times isn't dumbing down the paint apps.
>How many adults are willing to pay the premium price for a shitty license based toy?
No idea, but I know what games I'd be doing if I was in Ash's position. I'll give you a hint, it starts with a Handsome and ends with a Jack.
>I'm just hoping Ash actually sticks to his word and doesn't improve their latency on orders and informing customers more often for a short time before slowly sliding back into old habits. Which I get the horrible feeling will likely happen.
I don't get that at all, I feel like he's going to release things on time for a while, and if it goes back to basics, it'll be a crash and burn effect.
Honestly, he should be fine if he puts the release dates reasonably far away, and updates regularly. He could just hire one person to do that for him if it's too hard for him. It's easy.
I think generally the problem with lateness is that too often 3A is offering products that at the time of pre-order have nothing but an Ash sketch to go off of. Then the Hatchery has to get to work actually making a toy that passes Ash's notoriously strict oversight. That delays production until Ash is satisfied with a final design.
If they were to complete the design process prior to offering the pre-order, they could go into production much sooner, and get the figures out in a more reasonable time frame.
That's a problem, and so is Ash trying out new and complex figures, also perfecting the figure for release because he's anal about that stuff. When he's not, he usually has to offer replacements.
Also for those of us who ordered the 3AA pack, it's coming in September, not sure when, but soon, I think.

It won't be that bad, but it took em long enough.
It almost certainly won't be the latter. It's listed as WWR, and at least thus far, Ash has kept WWR pretty clean of his fetishes. Aside from the NOM Mother, the WWR lineup is just Plumes, soldiers, robots, and Roth of course.
Oh, actually, I just saw that Ash cleared it up in his latest Q&A.
>oh and the BIRDCAGE which is a Square variant, but a big difference.. you will see.
>What annoys me about the toys is that for a book with so many actual characters all we ever see n toy form is TKs.
TKs are the most plentiful, yes, and they've arguably sort of spun off into their own independent line even, but hey, we did get a decent amount of other Popbot characters. Pops himself, Badbot, Kitty, Blind Cowboy, Nabler, and Sham. Misty Slush is reportedly coming soon as well, and of course Lasstranaut will be coming with this year's membership package.
My curiosity is renewed now that Ash says they've gone back to the drawing board on a seamless body solution (I'm assuming they had tearing problems, like all rubber-coated figures). If they can figure out some new solution, I'm on board.
Still not feeling that damn mitten-hand though.
Enjoy your statue. Because odds are your going to quickly learn why most people have it in one reserved pose and keep it that way.
It looks great, but my god those joints are so damn stressful to move.
Also people have had problems with small pistons and such warping, myself included. My piston on my Raydome has warped.
>Enjoy your statue. Because odds are your going to quickly learn why most people have it in one reserved pose and keep it that way.
Eh. I don't expect to be playing with it daily, it's a massive $500 figure. I'm going to pick a pose I like, and it's going to be on display like that. I'll change it up every so often when the mood strikes me. But come on now, there are toys you buy expressly to fuck with all the time, and ones that you know are mainly for display. This one falls squarely into the latter camp. Who wants to even deal with wrestling with a figure this large on a daily basis anyway, even if the joints were perfect? Not I.
Hey guys, i purchased my first 3A figure, it was the Portable Fighting JC with the red coat.
However, his ankle pop off everytime I try and pose him, what's the best way to make them more stable?
>his ankle pop off everytime I try and pose him
Common problem for the APs with the sneakers.
Bulking up he ball will just make the problem worse. If you're daring, you can try digging out the socket so the ball fits in deeper, but that will probably make the joint really loose.
My recommendation is just to deal with it. Like I said, it's a design flaw in the APs with those feet.
Alright, so I know a lot of folks weren't feeling ThreeZero's birthan hipped Mazinger. But Aphrodite A is looking AMAZING
So, Ash posted these a few days ago. I'm thinking that this means they're shipping soon then, eh?
TK artbook is shipping.
Does anyone have a spare 1/6th grunt pouch, or something like that for sale? None has one. I've got parts to trade if you'd like that more.
My Noir is almost complete, just sewing his arm sleeve on, and trying to find some tubing I can shape with hot water somewhere. I think home depot might have something similar.
Honestly Mazinger kinda sucks dick in comparison. Aphrodite looks pretty much the same as it always has with some fun detail work added, meanwhile Mazinger was a drastic restyling of its design.
What confuses me is why redesign Mazinger so heavily then go with subtle changes with Aphrodite?

Same reason the Tallgeese was barely touched in the gundam wing redesigns, you can't really improve on perfection.

>$145 to build your own future memories on September 1
So Yoshitsune, the heavy TK slicer will be going up September the first at 145$ shipped. Much less so for 3AA members.
Seems pretty cheap for a figure like this.
Pledge inside balljoints gives kind of a thick, sludgy feel to the joint (better friction/adhesion). It might work, it might not. Give it a shot I guess, Pledge is removable so you won't lose anything for trying.
>Seems pretty cheap for a figure like this.
Agreed. It's got a lot of really big parts (arm pauldron, tank, giant sword) and some new parts too, like the shoes. Quite cheap, just too bad I'm not into the 7Bones colorway.
Here's Noir so far. Getting his sleeve sewed on soon, and some glove touch ups I think. Also going to find a hose soon, bag is the only thing posing any sort of problem.
Any critique so far?
No, I like 7bones, I have no interest in buying the heavy slicer. I'd rather we see more 7B like queeny wasabi and kyoku and less like Siho and the new heavy slicer. I'd rather he take his time instead of just making 7B colorways of random TK sales so he can get the line over with.
Took the 3a bait for this dude, I can't get over how I love the design
Paid $160 (shipping included) on eBay, did I fuck up or do you approve ?
Price wise is the only point where I wonder if I fucked up or did good, I am new in 3a but it feels like they don't lose value so I feel confident I made a good choice.
Can't, Noir's got a clean black body. Anything other than that where you could see me doing extra?
I'm having trouble weathering the helmet myself, no idea how to do it. Either like the original, or like the new 3AGO.
Can't wait for mine to ship by the way.
You did fine for him actually, especially if you prefer this suit over the other colors. If you don't like his beefyness, you can take out his undersuit that makes him look frumpy. Apparently, doing so slims him down a lot, and many people have opted to do that.
No pictures on hand of this, I'm afraid.
