Will have to wait to see if that's a small factory mixup or more widespread. Looking back at the adverts, the peg definitely matched the robotic arm color

It's probably widespread considering one arm is human. Production probably just streamlined their efforts without putting much thought into the peg. But I guess we will see once we get ours.

Taiwan legionnaires are receiving theirs too.
It's conclusive that all pegs are flesh-colored, and I am in awe of the robo-arm.

I could only afford one and had a tough time deciding. Ended up getting Saigo 5 (Seven Bones). Now I'm kinda wishing I went for Master 5 (Orange). Oh, well. All three look good.

I know the feeling.
After seeing Saigo with his fancy pants and cool boots I initially thought I really jumped for the wrong master.
But then I remembered I'd chosen Master 5 orange pants to expand my gingerish army, so all is good.

All three look pretty gorgeous,
but I noticed I am still no fan of the OG Tomorrow King shoes...
Really liked the stupid big skater sneakers of KDA, TKYO / Yellow Hornets / Interyo / the DIYs and TKLUB Number Two Nage M.I.A.

Can't wait to see in hand these new molded robotic hands. I think if they continue with these and add variety to even emulate the hands in Ash's painting, then it will definitely put 3A on another level in a league of its own.
As far as the TKs, the blue master was too fashion chic for me and the loper master was too monochromatic blasé. I went with the orange. I have also myself accumulated a few orange figures. Maybe we need to take some orange colorway shots.

I still feel the same about those shoes too, I'm more partial towards the chucks or the shogun/Oroshi style shoes.  I like being able to do dynamic poses that can still stand vs having to play a balancing game with the figure

Don't know if it's too late to add BBTS still has some for pre-order if you want to snag the orange one.

Yeah, I saw that and have been seriously pondering it.  But I'm still in the same boat - funds are tight.  Tough call.

*Update* Screw it - ordered. Rice and beans for the next couple of months!

Saigo landed in Cali today.   Great figure to end the 7B crew. And holy shit I completely forgot how many weapons this dude came with.  The robot arm is absolutely amazing. Came with some nice posters as well.  Definitely add my name to the list to help gain some traction in getting the correct matching color wrist pegs on the robot arm.

Don't know how you got yours so fast, 666ways2love.  No change in status for mine in over two weeks.  Hasn't even entered the country yet. scratch

7 Bones arrive first for me. Looper and master 5 are still in route. I would guess this weekend they will be here. Absolutely an amazing figure!

Wasn't able to snag any of them from bambaland, but got Master 5 from BBTS. Wonder when will they get the shipment of Master 5........

My Saigo 5 finally arrived yesterday.  Haven't opened it since deciding I preferred Master 5.  I also ordered one from BBTS and am wondering the same thing.  If they haven't received them yet, I expect they will very soon.

Guys, use extra caution when you bend the robotic arm at the elbow.
3A made a grave mistake choosing transparent plastic material for the skinniest and most stressed part of the arm.

2 out of 3 I received struck out and were broken out of the box.
I would highly recommend to loosen the screw, clean up and lube the elbow joint before you start fiddling with it.

Well, that's depressing. You've contacted ThreeA customer service?

Yes, CS offered repair which I declined and opt for DIY.
I can't see how the arm can snap during transit considering it's wrapped and secured in place. QC strikes again?

I like the molded robotic hands; the fingers were well done, though they could have tapered the palm more towards the wrist. They just seem a bit too wide especially noticeable in some of the photos I've seen.

With Ash's new Instagram Post of the Punk King painting I have a new hunger to own a 1:1 scale print of it. 3A make this happen and would be awesome if large print run on it as an option for bambaland. I would hope that 3AA members can have a guaranteed preorder shot for landing a print.

Also that 1/6 scale punk king. I can only imagine awesomeness. Looks like a master 5 sward in the works for him.
