52toys Interview with Kim

Post by gregory on Fri Jan 29, 2016 5:44 am

52Toys Interview

It's in Chinese, but if you use a browser translator it isn't that far off. Good look at behind the scenes, history of ThreeA and Threezero and how the companies have grown and the state of toy culture in China.

I always loved that Kim's office is such a beautiful mess, containing absolutely awesome things.

Very insightful.
Thanks for sharing.
Funny to see that 12" Dredd Movie toy in one of the pictures.

I like the fact he still has that 3AA 2011 hoodie with him in so many pics.
In Paris, when I bumped into him in the Bd Saint Germain the first thing I noticed was the hoodie instantly after that the guy who wore it.

I summarized some info when I share this on my fb last week ...
(and sorry for my terrible english... )

1) 3A lost the star wars license, but as the prototype is already there... it's fair to sell these sw style helmet tk/tq without star wars logo
(as what happened at thai toy expo, all sw logo has been erased).
(and very sad there is no 1/12th clothe outfit sw figure from 3a)

2) we won't have spawn figure from 3A, project has been hold.

3) Jeremy Geddes wants to focus on drawing, so Geddes figure stopped.

4) we will see more 6" / 1/12th figure this year

5) About fans complains...Kim said Ash and 3A need a breakthrough, and it take time.

6) 3A has membership method because most of fans of 3a are fans of Ash, but each series of 3Zero targets different groups of customers, so there no need for membership.  
(and won't happen... I think).

7) and about fallout 4 power armor, Bethesda asked ThreeZero first.

Cool 3A/3Zero will have figure works with Paul Pope, Takeya Takayuki (awww) and new figure of Ma.K, Kow Yokoyama is now wip.

9) 3A/3Zero now has 16 employee in HongKong, 7 oversea (really surprised me!)

Thanks SzuTsung! I had a sneaking suspicion for a while now that this was the case.
