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!

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.

>>4339157
1/12 or 1/6? Great deal either way. I do like the Gravedigger color way, maybe I'll try to track one down, either that or euro defense.
>>
>>4339139
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.

Deimos. WWR was sold on Bamba, WWRp was a retail release.

>>4339175
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.
>>
>>4339190
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?

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!

>>4339220
I'm not a fan of either Deimos colorway, EMGY and Deep Powder 4 lyfe

Being that EMGY and Deep Powder don't exist as Heavy Bram colorways, I think Deimos is one of the most interesting.

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!

It's an artbook (well 2 of them but they only sell collected a edition now) It sort of became it's own thing though, there are also little short stories on the toy boxes.

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.

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.
>>
>>4342984
IF you don't want one of the figures, you could always sell it before it ships.

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?

Dunno about your customs situation (not a concern here in Ausfag land) but I'm relatively certain they usually mark them as a lower value than the sale price.

Handsome wu
Yaro
Dark ninja
>>
>>4345077
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?

9 actually, all with removable magazines. And he retailed for $130 so yeah you got a good deal. Open him up, he's cool as fuck.

>>4345145
>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.

>>4345077
My orders this year have been
Lass
GHG Gertrude (Shipped, but hasn't arrived yet)
CNY Drinking Miyu (Shipped ages ago)
Juicy Racing Miyu
Handsome Wu
Zomb MD & Albino Nurse

I've bought a lot of aftermarket/con stuff sofar this year, too.

>>4351891
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.

>>4352064
I thought the black style was derived from visual kei and emo.

Lost Planet Merc actually shipped. Been about a year and a half since it was up for preorder
>>
>>4355547
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.

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 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.
>>
>>4362130
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.

>>4362200
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!

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.

>>4362570
Lady Sham had problems, later catsuit figures like nom mother were fine.
>>
>>4362578
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 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?
>>
>>4375191
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.
>>
>>4375203
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?
>>
>>4375214
Why not? silicon is sturdy stuff, I don't expect a ton of articulation though. Carter was a full body skin, even on important joints like knees shoulders and elbows. detatchable
>>
>>4375225
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.
>>
>>4375191
Goddamn it, we had people all over the 3A forums (myself included) voicing concerns over the skin, only to have them now say "oops! you guys were right after all!"
>>
>>4375356
I admire Ash's determination, but I really doubt he can make this work well. The impossible has been done before, but I don't see this happening.

>>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.

>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.
>>
>>4380176
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.
>>4380205
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.
>>
>>4380222
Nope, it's a super old prototype from before dropcloths wore skirts. More in line with the original paintings actually.

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.

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$?
>>
>>4382148
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
>>
>>4382154
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.

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!

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.
>>
>>4382665
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!
>>
>>4382674
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.

>>4382685
>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.
>>
>>4382788
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.

>>4382788
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.

There was also a secret 3AGO Interloper TK that went up last night, but I passed on it.

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.

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.

>>4384952
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 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.
>>
>>4385293
>>4385202
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.

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.

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.

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.

>>4387282
Alright, thanks for the info, it's good to know it's a recurring thing and I wasn't just unlucky.
>>
>>4387282
For some reason my Baka and the Kiba I used to have were fine, only AP I had ankle problems with was JC

So, Ash posted these a few days ago. I'm thinking that this means they're shipping soon then, eh?

For the most part, we've been sorta lumping random ThreeZero stuff into the ThreeA general for a while now. It helps to keep the thread going while one brand or the other is being less active.

>>4387874
Yup, usually packaging shots means they're nearly ready to go!

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.
>>
>>4387432
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.

Asking again would pledge future shine just fuck up the ankles up rather than fix it
>>
>>4389067
It should fix it, a few people have done it with success.
>>
>>4389067
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.

Goddamnit, no interest in completing the team anymore.

>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.
>>
>>4389613
>>4389434
Knowing Ash, we'll probably get more than a 7 bones color way.

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?
>>
>>4390241
Looking pretty good. Though it wouldn't hurt to dirty up to arms a little imo
>>
>>4389623
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 ?
>>
>>4390640
I can see why you would love the design but I can't get over how short and stubby his arms look.
>>
>>4390640
Not bad, think he was like $150 on release. Have fun with him.
>>
>>4390644
I think it might be because of the suit itself? I kl take a bunch if pictures when it arrives , wondering if it's actual leather.

>>4390649
I think it was either 150 or 160 so I thought in the incredibly rare case scenario that I disliked him at arrival I could sell at about the same price.
>>
>>4390657
It's not leather, and yes hu uses a standard body, the suit makes the arms look stubby
>>
>>4390693
Pretty excited.

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.


...did I?
>>
>>4390709
Everyone who owns DAG seems to love him, hardly any for sale on the usual places. You did great pricewise. I'd get one for myself if I wasn't so invested in TKs
>>
>>4390248
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.

>>4390640
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.
