Obsidian landed in San Diego. About to crack him open right now////

[EDIT: opened it up - - - nice classy minimalist shadow OG TK in all its glory. I really dig him. The OG packs, belt, shoes, one sword,.. all great. No body issues to report. The new "re-tooled" bod seems nice and solid in the shoulders and still has all the articulation. Definitely feels sturdier. I did get some chin scuff that took a minuscule amount of paint off. That's it though. Finally, an OG TK in my collection! Very happy with the shadowy fella.]

3A Sales info via Thailand Toy Expo on Facebook:


3A exclusive selling schedule and rules:

Selling date: April 30 , 2015
Selling time: 11:00 am

Queing infront of Central World Department Groove zone.

BUY ASHLEY WOOD'S POSTER with the price of 16,000 baht, WILL GET A SET of FREE 3A exclusive products. (1 set = 2 exlcusive items + 1 random RARE item)

Only 150 sets at Thailand Toy Expo

**It is more than WHAT YOU THINK**



It looks like everything will only be sold together as a bundle at roughly 500 USD.
You get "1 set" (Ash TK and Siu TQ), 1 "random RARE item" (Stormy TK), plus a poster.

So the Stormtrooper/Lonely Star Warrior TKs are going to be blind box style at TTE at least!
I wonder if they are going to sold the same way on Bamba?
Only 300 premade possibly?  Half at TTE and the other half on Bamba?

Are you sure?
Or is it just an assumption?

Would be extremely rare for a company to pay a shitload on licensing money for only 300 1/6th toys.

As far as I know there are other really RARE items at Thailand Toy Expo.

I imagine there are only 300 at the expo. Makes no sense, business wise, to have to fork over the money to Lucas just to make 300 toys. If anything..3A wants to sell as many of these as possible to make the profit gap a little easier.

Noticed in the shipping update that the 3AA Heavy Duty Slicer is delayed, regular set for late April. Can't wait to see that big 'ol bot head.

It says in H3ADLINES issue 7, that the TK Lonely SW Sergeant will be for sale at Bamba during or around the Thai show.

Sorry, I forgot about the 24" Paschas.

I think you're right gar, if you add up the cost of the 1 Ash TK, 1 Siu TQ and 1 Vampire Hunter = $500.

So the Stormy TK Bamba sale details are still unknown, besides the price.

My bad.   Neutral

On the other hand:
Ashley just mentioned a couple of hours ago on instagram

We will have a handful for the Thai toy expo next week.
Will offer online soon, the Thai could be considered beta versions.
I can't wait see what guys you do with our 1/3rd size toys,
from photographing to clothing diy, the larger size really helps helps in all regards !

So it can as well be something else.
It's RARE and random and threeA was able to pump out 150 of them in total.

actually I still confuse about TK K1971 and TQ BO, thai exc and bamba.

Ash should be more clear about this, maybe admin can help us to ask to Ash:
TK K1971 and TQ BO for Thai exc and for bamba at 1st may was same or diff?

just now Siu posted something on her IG.

Would just be tickled to the point of pee leakage if we had all the info at least 24hours in advance of any figures being dropped on Bamba.
Not sure if this will be one of the first sales where our 3AA perks will be utilized or what,...

Obsidian arrived today, and I have to say that I'm really impressed! The, joints are nice and stiff, I'm looking forward to trying out some different poses with this guy. Also, is this a new belt clasp design? Much easier to take off the belt now, and my fingertips don't hurt afterwards which is an added bonus.

The belt clasp design I believe is either exactly or similar to the original old school belt clasps. I think they might be exact, but I'd have to pull out my original TK from underneath my pile of boxes to be sure. Maybe someone else can confirm or deny.

Meh, fixed it myself... CS wanted me to send the head back to them so they could fix it... seems like more trouble than its worth after i'd have to pay for shipping and then having a headless figure for a month or longer...

Yep, this is one of my personal fave TKs now ... big time OG Negro feel on the guy for me and I love it.
Weird that the chin scuff seems to be showing up on this guy. I've seen it on a few on IG as well. Mine was really really minor and I don't even feel the need to fix it. Cthulhu, yours looks as good as new right there. Shadowy badazz.

Have to break out the paint later and get it covered up.
Should've invested a few pennies in those head plastic bags 3A...
