I totally didn't realize this and as a current 3AA member, missed the discount on renewing. They should have at least kept the renewal discount until the end of the membership period. This didn't sit to well with me as I begrudgingly paid full price for my 10th year.

Not a fan of Mort but hanging in there for 1 more year!

I am sorry to hear you missed the 24 hour discount window, BigAppleFan.

3AA 2017 membership period ended on January 16th, 09:00 AM HK time.
Just like previous years which had a standard 24 hour order window for 3AA, 3AA membership was a 365 day discount starting at the end of the sale.

This year is different in so far regular order and payment window is prolonged to February 1st.
The 2017 3AA membership isn't prolonged though.

3AA 2017 members still have had a 24 order window as mentioned in the FAQ here and here.
All 2017 3AA memberships are deactivated after January 16th, 09:00 AM HK time and all payed 2018 3AA memberships will be activated after that date. (or after payment before February 1st.)
It would be too messy and chaotic to have two different memberships active at the same time.
Payement has to be completed by Feb 1st. As mentioned on the sale page here
3AA discount will be activated after payment.

So if a 3AA 2017 member ordered his 3AA before January 16th, 09:00 AM HK time. He could have ordered with 15% discount and still be able to pay up to 2 weeks later in the meantime he doesn't have a discount though and as far as I understand discount is good until the next 3AA Membership sale.

Thanks for the response and clarification gar.

I guess the 2 week extended signup period stuck with me and had me thinking I had a little extra time to signup this time around.

Non-members have a 2 week period to decide to join while existing 3AA members had 24 hours to decide and take advantage of the discount. The extended time to decide and longer 3AA discount period would have been a nice courtesy for veterans as well. Hope the other veterans were able to sign up early enough for the discount.

So do all 2018 memberships now expire on Feb 1 when payment is due or do they expire 365 days from when you actually paid?

Extended time to preorder and or pay doesn’t automatically mean it extents the time period 3AA 2018 is valid, for the same reason existing 3AA 2017 members had 24 hours time to re-up with their 15% discount.

Since it would be unfair to those people who actually buy their 3AA on the 15th, I am pretty sure 3AA 2018 ends for everybody at the exact same time: most probably on January 16th, 2019.

[edit]
Thank you Gregory

I personally wish I would've been more mindful of this.
I automatically assumed, after just see quickly that the 3AA purchase window was extended, that current 3AA member status would be extended out as well. It has always followed that pattern in the past, granted the window had always been 24hrs in the past as well. I don't really view it as unfair to anyone because the only people who can utilize the discount are existing 3AA members.
Honestly, it makes more sense to me that the existing 3AA member renewal price is set at the 15% discount mark as long as it's bought during the purchase window.
I had reached out to 3A CS that same night after re-checking the blog and realized I was several hours after the fact,...

Bummer for me. 7 years in, but I just didn't pay close enough attention after seeing the overall sale had more time.
I don't really try to jump in just for the sake of complaining, but wanted to say that this is likely a perspective that more than a few had.

If there is nothing that can be done, then I guess I understand.

Still considering if I should renew or not because I love Mort - one of the things that would be a tipping point for me is if I knew there were going to be more Judge Dredd / 2000AD characters in 1:6. There seemed to be an insinuation in the announcement of 3AA 2018 that the focus is moving away from licensed properties (not necessarily a bad thing).

That, I only bought one 3A fig in the last 3/4 years and it was Dredd if Death, Anderson and other Dark Judges are coming, it's a no-brainer for me to return to the fold.

Gregory or anyone have any insight into this? Thanks!

If you love Mort it's a no brainer. Just get him regardless of membership. The membership discount will just be an added bonus and if 2000AD happens to be in the mix this year, then fantastic for you. Even if they told you they had plans for 2000AD this year, there's no telling that they will execute them and in what time frame. *shrugs*

Yo, you love Mort? GO!!!

Plus, in the latest newsletter, 2000AD is one of few licences, that will continue...not sure about near 1/6 releases, but very likely, and the membership discount is nice bonus if you already want Mort! (so in shortform = "what Chivo said!" Wink )

Will Mort come in a box? I notice alot of the figures that come with membership just come in a bag. Which will be a sad way to get this beast of a Mort figure!

Most membership packs come in a box, normally a pretty elaborate box. The only one that I can think of that came in a bag was F-legion but that bag was a very nice messenger bag. Blanc came in a bullet. They always put a big effort into 3aa packs. All have been great (although I didn't like Lass at all but I'm in the minority and sold that pack on for cost price to a friend so no loss there.) This is my 7th year and to anyone still on the fence I say if you like the look of Mort then go for it, even if you don't buy anything else it's still a good deal.

If you mean the figure was in a plastic bag instead of a clamshell or foam it happened twice in the 9 year history of 3AA:
3AA 2012: Adventure Kartel F-LEGION cyborg 002449 bagged in a 3AA messenger bag
3AA 2016: WWR Von de Plume which was bagged in a Tube, just like Tomorrow Andy, Yesterday Andy and Velvet Andy.

3AA 2013: WWR 06 Blanc Hunter Nom wasn't deployed in a bullet container, the membership T-shirt was. Blanc Hunter sat comfortable in a protective foam bedding.

Product description of 3AA 2018 Membership pack says "Boxed Style Packaging" so I doubt Future Mort will come in a mere plastic bag.

Sorry, my mistake but all 3aa packs are worth keeping and works of art in themselves.

Have you contacted CS about that? They would have a record of your 9 previous years so maybe in good will they'd do something. Not saying they will but certainly doesn't hurt to ask. Worst case scenerio they say no.

It would have been cool if Future Mort came in a body bag and/or a pine/coffin box. Wink

Ah, I'm glad to hear that!

If it's not in special packaging like the ones mentioned, I hope it's in a shoebox style with Artwork like a typical 3A release!

I can't wait for this. Do we have an actual release date?

Not a no-brainer if I tie up $200 for 9 months for Mort (if I'm lucky...).

So does anyone have any response to if 3A/2000AD is continuing? Thanks!

From the 3AA F.A.Q. on the blog/newsletter/etc
What Licensed Lines does 3A plan to produce?
Transformers, Destiny 2, Paul Pope’s THB, and 2000AD.

Steel Detective Batman and Joker Fresh LTD Editions will be our finale to the DC Steel Age line.

I can't comment on schedule and all current updates are in the 2000AD threads. All I can recommend is if you collect any non-licensed 3A lines, it's worth it for the membership. If you dig Future Mort, totally worth it, he's a great figure, but I'm also biased.

If you only collect one licensed line that has sparse releases, then you'll be OK without it since licensed lines sales are open to the public on Bamba and also offered to retailers. In general, there will be no 3AA exclusive licensed figures, there are the occasional Bambaland exclusive ones though.

Thanks Gregory! I haven't kept up with newsletter, updates, etc - I should've just looked at 2000Ad threads, DUH! This is exactly what I needed to know. I have no doubt FM is worth price of membership, but if there are 2000AD offerings forthcoming (or even the promise of them) the discount seals the deal.

Warbot, Future Mort 13, Showa Trooper LTD Editions, Paul Pope's THB, New Dresden Frau, Destiny Titan aren't exactly sod all..that's a lot of work to make happen. Plus AP Shogun sale, Fangy Girl teaser, and some painting teasers of Ashtro Boy

Plus the beginning of the year is always slow due to CNY. Office is shut down for half of Feb. Then the Factory is shut down for almost five weeks. Then the first half of March is shot because the factory is slow to get back up to full steam.

Bunch of prep work happening right now for Shanghai Toy Show. Ash is just in the thick of it making sure projects we plan to debut are up to snuff. Things'll pick up quite a bit in April

I feel like there has been plenty of 3AA stuff this year, not necessarily stuff I want to order, but didn't feel bare bones.

Do we even know everything that is going to release this year?

I just hope for some more cool AK characters (still wanting a black character)

Gregory - how's Mort coming along?
