January 2012

02.01.

Ashley about 1:1 kitties, which will be shown (and hopefully for sale) at REVENTURE in Hong-Kong.
no lists!!
i still have to paint them, fuck I might only make 5, who know, so no listsssss

im sick of saying how shit things are, shocking new years, what can ya dop but move on.
there are no specific kittys, im just gonn apaint them as I feel fit, some will be sparse, some much mor labored, whatever the feeling on the day, i might keep them all
art is adventure, scary and exciting.

On Linkin Park and 3A WWRp Bramble Thousand Horizons shipping:
yup, asking them is best. we have no info!

03.01

Ashley about REVENTURE
regarding the show, its an art show with toys, thats the main gist of it. whether your there on the first or last day, you will be able to see the good stuff.
There will be exclusive toys, but what and when we are selling has not been finalized.
The best part of Venture is the getting together, seeing art, seeing friends, hanging out in a cool as fuck city.
We are gonna supply a venue, art, toys, you guys are the fun! We charge nothing to see it, we expect nothing. Venture is very different to the beijing art show, that was more formal and structured due to the size, this is different, more intimate etc
I take my hat off to anyone making the adventure happen, takes a set of nuts to travel around the world to such an event.
soon as we have any detail for toys etc we shall tell ya. But the most important is already there, the dates !

i keep telling everyone, you guys are the stars of venture, the show is the hub/catalyst etc
I wish i was just going to enjoy the show, not putting it on

On WWR Mighty Square:
he is different, not just a larger square, its mighty square dammit
And no guys, according to my info, it's not 1:1 , so it will be affordable and no shipping trouble.

On AP Zombs and that we might see some special ones (like chases from October release) in VOX:

January - 2012  TH8Mlt

next vox might have some, but i gotta find energy, the holidays were shit for me.........
they are fun, the PLATOOM zomb is great, or Subomb ( suburb war zomb )

Meanwhile, Zaku is getting closer and closer! Reminding you: Zaku will be up for sale January 6th, 9:00AM Hong-Kong time at www.bambalandstore.com and the price is: 330$

January photo thread is started and it's always great to checkout photos from previous month ones: December one - over 60 entries of awesomeness.

04.01

Ashley about Zaku and that shipping is included in the price (330$):
shipping is included, its a big fig!
vox tomorrow, all info, height etc, the ol one man army is back in effect !

WOW, as a HUUUUGE fan of B&W colorways, I'm screaming like a little vamp and desperately hoping for Daywatch colorway. Ashley talking about WWR 1G Armstrongs

With 1 days and 15 hours left, before Zaku sale...I want to warn you about F5 Bar and Grill, first sale of the year and first bar. Really excited about that! Get ready for sketching and having a good time! Zaku will be up for sale January 6th, 9:00AM Hong-Kong time at www.bambalandstore.com and the price is: 330$ - with worldwide shipping included in the price.

05.01

With less than 24 hours to wait before EPIC 3A and Bandai collaboration: Zaku goes on sale , the magical time comes. The moment I always look forward to...as it's an opening of F5 Bar and Grill! What is F5 Bar and Grill? It's a cool place, where we all hang out before the sale starts, sharing excitement, our thoughts and whatnot, and trying our best to stay on topic (we aren't always succeed though).
So, with F5 Bar going up Zaku thread is reserved for Q&A about Zaku sale and reporting problems (bambalandstore issues and whatnot), all the other chatter must go in F5 bar.
Have fun in the bar, but don't forget basic rules and maintaining positive vibes of our beloved 3A board. Since F5 Bar during the sale is really crowded and grows like several pages in few minutes, all the essential sales info + sketches will be posted in the first opening post of the F5 thread. So before asking a question, please check the first page of the bar for answers. You can always PM me (or other MODs) if you some questions and you don't want to post them publicly.
Usually we don't allow interpretations of 3A/Ashley Wood intellectual property and characters. But as our tradition goes only on sale nights, we are making an exception and looking forward to your sketches , featuring Zaku on them. I'll be putting them up here and in F5 Bar, later on they will be added to online gallery on imgur as well, with captions, so it will be seen who is the author of each sketch, which is always nice. If I missed your sketch, please never hesitate to contact me.

The bar is open and waiting for ya!

Ashley speaking about Zaku and collaboration with Bandai:
"stuff costs what it does, its expensive to make a large articulated toy, plus we have to pay royalties to bandai etc. If we could charge less we would, I think we have shown that over the years. Shipping form HK has risen 10% in the last couple of months, on average Zaku would cost 80 bucks to ship to most, more in some places.
Im happy to have mine, so its a win in my book!"
"toned down the weathering, I really like the colors and wanted them to shine
we never thought this would be a $$$ maker, traditionally any deviation from the source isnt well liked in this field, but it was too cool to pass up, I enjoyed the process and Bandai were supportive all the way."


What Bandai didn't allow:
not allowed to use the words Zion or the logo, dunno why, not a big deal etc

On changes:
if I had been told no, i would have walked, there were no changes at all, Bandai are a smart company, why work with somebody and tell em what to do.. like so many other companies do from film to games to whatever!!

Whether Zaku comes with a poster:
not up to me Eirc, I would if we can, but thats publishing, im not sure if our deal covers that, hope so !

More mechs are coming!
there wil be more, its too much fun, Bandai have all my childhood favs, takara too...
MAZINGER is next


Whether we will see more Zaku versions:
therre is only one Zaku,no more planned

VOX volume 2 number 1 is out and you can read it here

Welcome to our first 3AVOX for 2012, traditionally the first two months of the year are the most quiet for 3A as the Chinese New Year kicks in and most of February is a holiday for China. But even with the Hatchery taking a well earned holiday Jan and Feb are packed with some great toys. Jan has Zaku and the first female member of the 7Bones, Queeny. Lets not forget the mighty 3AA sale as well ( subject of a special VOX early next week ). Then Feb will bring the much anticipated MGS REX, and Ro-Jaws from 2000AD. 2012 is set to be the best year for 3A, as we move into our fourth year the passion and drive to make great toys has only grown!

And speaking of great toys, Friday 6th of Jan will see the presale of the Ashley Wood X Gundam Zaku 9-00am at Bambaland Hong Kong date and time. Zaku is approximately 16" tall and is fully articulated. Zaku cost $330usd, the price includes shipping.

Ashley about the packaging and box art:
i enjoy doing cartoon simple stuff as much as paintings, plus I want the retail Ak to be different from the bamba.
I think the cartoony feel is better for AK than painted.

ill probably do similar for all AK from now on, these are like the first shot in the second gen of AK.

About AK Retail Red Tommy:
its red for a reason.

About three single carded Action Portable Popbots advantage over 3pack
the threepack aint gonna be any cheaper as these guys already on the wire for price, plus three different paintings on the cards is cooler

On WWR Bot Sniper helpers:
snipers work alone, they have intel being pushed to them constantly, that scope works on many spectrums as well.

" 3AA have 24 hours to order, thats it, what else do ya need to know
im keeping 2012 really simple, 3AA have 24 hours to order a standard or 3AA toy"


I will quote this image again, cause F-Legion 0024491 is awesome, checkout his story as well: A relic from the Northern suburb wars, the only remaining member of F-Legion. F-Legion were experimental cyborgs designed to help the ADF against the hoards of robots pillaging the northern suburbs of New Andria! 0024491 was the only member to return from the mysterious ROBOT ISLAND after an ill-fated assault. 0024491 has never spoken of the mission and to this day still carries on his prime directive to protect the northern suburbs from all trouble merchants and shit stirrers.

Ashley about AK 1/6th scale 3AA 2012 exclusive figures: F-Legion 0024491

Ashley's quote from September 11th (and which for some strange reason got missing from my column), which sheds some light on "cross decal" , which can be seen on Gravediggers and Barguest de Plume:
"err, he has a cross on his hide, who else has a cross on them, im not talking a vertical cross either…"

Added author names to Brillo Square F5 Bar sketches gallery: https://imgur.com/a/T2QAb#0 and to Zaku F5 Bar sketches gallery: https://imgur.com/a/ACtW6#0 , now I'm done with holidays backlog. Huge thank you to all authors! I bet you guys are getting ready for F5 Bar dedicated to 3AA 2012 sale, which goes up soon!

And two frequent questions I saw people asking:
Is there is a limit on the amount of members that can join 3AA 2012? As was mentioned in the VOX, there is 24 hours window, so limit is determined by the amount of people, who will join and pay for their membership.
I and my fiance/brother/father.... live in the same house and we both want to buy 3AA 2012 and we have seen this rule in 3AVOX: "One 3AA membership per account and delivery address.", what to do? Unfortunately that's not my department, but all I can, is to recommend you to contact cs@threeaonline.com ASAP and explain your reasons.

I can't believe that it's a forth year of offering 3AA membership to people...time flies so fast! I'm doing the news for three full years and this is going to be my forth year as 3AA member. Since, magic card and privileges (access and discount) are mostly similar through the years and 3AA always comes in a great box, let's take a look on previous years exclusives:

Year 2009 - WWRp Bramble (first ever WWRp figure)

January - 2012  KaTmzt

year 2010 - WWRp Nom de Plume

January - 2012  ZK4txt

year 2011 - AP Oyabun (first AP Popbot Universe figure)

January - 2012  FWmIGt

and now 1/6th scale F-Legion figure, we are growing baby! And don't forget about MESSENGER BAG - in my opinion it tops last years t-shirt and hoodie!

January - 2012  SyjPKtJanuary - 2012  SwaLKt

I'm always so devastated about people, who discover about 3A and fell in love with our figures one week after 3AA membership sale, because now they have to wait almost a full year to get on the train. So please spread a word about this sale, let's make everyone know that on January 13th for 24 hours, everyone will have an unique opportunity to become 3AA member.

With less than 24 hours to wait before 3AA 2012 goes up on Bamba, it's time to open F5 Bar...Here are the details and rules about F5 Bar, which are currently must be boring for my frequent readers.
With F5 Bar going up 3AA 2012 thread is reserved for Q&A about 3AA sale and reporting problems (bambalandstore issues and whatnot), all the other chatter must go in F5 bar.
Have fun in the bar, but don't forget basic rules and maintaining positive vibes of our beloved 3A board. Since F5 Bar during the sale is really crowded and grows like several pages in few minutes, all the essential sales info + sketches will be posted in the first opening post of the F5 thread. So before asking a question, please check the first page of the bar for answers. You can always PM me (or other MODs) if you some questions and you don't want to post them publicly.
Usually we don't allow interpretations of 3A/Ashley Wood intellectual property and characters. But as our tradition goes only on sale nights (and especially 3AA sale night), we are making an exception and looking forward to your sketches , featuring any 3A characters on them or Legion themes. I'll be putting them up here and in F5 Bar, later on they will be added to online gallery on imgur as well, with captions, so it will be seen who is the author of each sketch, which is always nice. If I missed your sketch, please never hesitate to contact me.

Message from Benny (threeA HK staff)
We are too busy right now and have too many emails incoming, please give us some time to answer on them. Don't worry, we will answer on all of them. Thank you!

Guys, automatic confirmation emails are taking some time to generate and the more orders came in, the more time it takes. Don't worry if you haven't got one instantly. Paypal payment confirmation is what matters the most!

After some problems within first minutes of the sale, everything goes smoothly and 3AA membership is sitting on Bamba for 24 hours window and waiting for people to put it in the cart.

Ashley posting in a bar, thanking everyone for support:
[color=green]i would also like to say thanks from all of 3A for the continued support into 2012![color]

And before hitting the bed, I just want to say: Welcome to all the new members and existing members, who are renewing for the next year of 3AA! And don't forget 24 hour window for buying membership closes on January 14th, 9:00AM HK time.

14.01

After 24 hours sharp, 3AA 2012 membership is gone from the store. Again, I want to say : Welcome to all the new members and existing members, who are renewing for the next year of 3AA! Thank you SO MUCH for your support and it's great to have you on our side!

Ashley posting in F5 bar about 3AA 2012:
"please if we had taken it down you would have called foul and 3A SUCKS !
5 minutes and its down !"
"its funny, we estimated pretty much to a 10 what 3AA would be..
we aint taking the world over, but we are not going backwards"
- on 3AA members quantity
thats it, hope there is a 5th !
cheers chaps


Lots of chatter in F5 bar, was dedicated to bacon and Ashley joined the talks:
"carded vinyl bacon.. now thats a toy !"
"ill make it 3AA exclusive !"


One of 3A secrets, which was never actually a secret:
dunno whats coming, we dont have any structure or plan, just winging it, or it becomes a job, and I dont do that !

On whether we will have one more VOX this week:
vox was the 3AA one.
shit i only got two hands. plus with the chinese new year happening shit is a little slow around these parts. next week will be cool, Queeny !


Our boardie Teimaru discovered something about his Nablers
Guys i think nobody noticed it before here, but NABLER'S EYES ARE GID !!!

January - 2012  CdjvJtJanuary - 2012  Feclkt

Some boardies already tried it and didn't have good results, so perhaps his Nablers are special or it's an evil Nabler's game to trick us all?

Last sketches update from F5 bar, thank you to all the authors! Working on adding names to the online gallery.

Even though 3AA 2012 is a done deal, I don't want to close the bar yet, since this night was so special for us all...I don't want this bar to end like an ordinary one.
Perhaps everyone, who is willing could write a comment, saying few words about 3A, 3AA and bacon (if you love THAT much)? Would be nice, what do you think? Please click here and say some words if you dig the idea.

Small notice to all the new members, 'cause members from the previous years know it already, as we have the same procedure. After 3AA 2012 membership purchase your 3AA privileges at Bambalandstore, will be activated right in time for the next Bambalandstore sale (most likely Queeny - nothing written in stone yet), no need to do anything from your side at this point – 3A staff will go through the people , who bought memberships and assign privileges to their accounts at Bambalandstore.

F5 Bar is closed and as a tradition goes, here is a short farewell from me:
Hate to let go such a magical "night in a bar", but don't want to confuse people, who just missed 3AA sale , with an open bar.
Thank you SO MUCH guys for the continuous support. Without your strong support, this bar, forum, community and 3A, would never be so cool & alive!
I'll repeat Ash's words, for those who haven't seen it:

i would also like to say thanks from all of 3A for the continued support into 2012

See you for the next sale, which is most likely going to be Popbot Queeny!
First 3AA exclusive is going to be AP Popbot 4pack, featuring:
Sangreal, Popbot chain version, Badbot and two handed Popbot
Have a great weekend my friends.
Gimbs


Another photo of MGS REX from Kojima Hideo twitter , railgun is HUGE! People keep asking about scale and prices. Sadly I can't say anything about the price and as for the scale, we know that REX stands almost 20" tall and according to info, I've found "real" REX height is 12meters, so with simple conversion and math, we are getting 1:23 scale ratio (feel free to correct me, if I'm wrong).

January - 2012  4Ms7Lt

Ashley reminding that MGS RAY would be as cool, as REX is:
Ray is awesome too, no other plans beyond those too, if you want more tell Konami !

Guys, please use the map and mark your WWR TRG Trooper (shipped) & WWR Medic Grunt and Popbot Blind Cowboy on it: http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=210110 , if you will not use it, the map has no sense in keeping it alive. I see that A GREAT number of people marked Lolli TQ on the map, why no love for TRG Trooper? Thank you!

About the map:
turned out that there was a glitch, which prevented people from using TRG EMGY/Medic marker, which is fixed now. Huge thanks to Scott, for letting me know! See guys, I can't fix things, without your feedback. Your critics and suggestions are as appreciated, as simple "thank you".

Zombies vs Robots ANNUAL news from Chris Ryal blog. Click here for the full story. Huge thank you goes to blankedboy for the heads up.

In May, we’re doing the first-ever ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS ANNUAL, and bringing in some big guns for this one.
First, I’m happy as hell that Ashley Wood is back on-board for interiors: he and I will be doing a new 14-page story. But there are other people I’m really happy to have alongside us.
I resisted the idea of handing off ZvR comic stories to anyone else for a long time, but these cats are some people I really love, and more and more, I’m drawn by the idea of seeing what other people do with the goofy premise.
With the first ZOMBIES VS ROBOTS ANNUAL, I set up an anthology-like premise of “Seasons of War.” Each of the four creative teams will be doing a different season over the course of the book. Those teams are:
Daniel Wilson and Sam Kieth: Spring
Kevin Grevioux and Drew Moss: Summer
Rio Youers and Andy Kuhn: Fall
Me-n-Ash: Winter

WWR Mighty Square according to the information out there , will be most likely released around Wonder Festival, February 13th and will be offered by Goodsmile Company. Can't wait for more details, meanwhile two detailed photos of the Square:

January - 2012  ELYhrtJanuary - 2012  Sxu8Ft

Ashley and Kim visited Hot Toys office and Hot Toys posted that information on their Facebook page...I wonder what they wanna tell us? If you are interested (and I bet you are), you can discuss it here.

January - 2012  G7GUqtJanuary - 2012  DApmrtJanuary - 2012  RhwEWt

Hot Toys comment about these photos:
ThreeA visits Hot Toys office
Renowned Artist & Professional Illustrator Ashley Wood and Kim Fung Wong from threeA Toys visited our office yesterday!

Ashley is back from Hong-Kong and ready to share some details about WWR Mighty Square purpose on the field and how many versions we will see and more importantly – when:
"the mighty square has many jobs, freight, mobile platform, gun turret etc. in can be fitted out on many ways."
"yup, super smart, a hub for the standard squares etc. "

it is, looks good riding it too.
no need for RIDING IT jokes she said on Grunts using Mighty Square as an observation platform
"im sure one day we will make more, different versions etc. But I dont control the production, or I would offer them monthly, I want them too.
when I get mine today, ill photograph it with some 1/6th figures for size. Im GS has show the Mighty, standard and WWRp shot right ?"


About WWR Mighty Square leg armor and when another colorway (not JDF) might be offered:
"next one maybe mid year, 3rd qtr i would say"
"they are protection for the legs, big targets
off to work i go ! "

ill do many hopefully, but they will take time, shit the way the worlds economies are going one is a win for me !

About the photo , which shows all three Squares: WWR , WWRp and Mighty Square in one shot
"no I meant the shot comparing sizes etc. I took one with a wwrp square, a standard and migthy together to show sizes etc mighty only comes in mighty size"
"that is the shot i took, all jdf squares of varying girth"
- Sadly Goodsmile Company haven't shared this photo yet

Commenting on Doc Grunt handgun and that it's no different from other WWR Grunt weapons:
gun has changed ?
what gun, should be same as other grunts ?

On AP Zombs – Warzomb versions:

January - 2012  YM9S9t

i think there are 3 war versions, i dont have them on hand, somewhere in transit. Platoon Zombs !

Any chance of having them in 1/6th scale?
1/6th.. shit I think the hatchery will flip if I ask for more 1/6th zombs !

WWR 1.5 Dropcloth is coming to us soon:
DC is one of my fav, DC 1.5 should be scuttling out soon.
actually, one is a gatler one is a gunslinger.
some new tweaks and ads, makes for a better bot. - on their versions and what weapons they are carrying

Telling us a bit more, why Ashley Wood and Kim Fung Wong were visiting Hot Toys office in HK:
the eyes in the new Batman figure are awesome, freaking cool, makes such a cool feature...
collab...
If I'm correct Ashley is referring to this figure.

Ashley commenting on AK Ankou EX head/neck issues, discovered by few boardies. Photos to better illustrate the issue by robot ghost:

January - 2012  GqvJ2tJanuary - 2012  ZgNidtJanuary - 2012  XwqNWt

I'll post only few on point comments and those who are interested can read entire dialogue here.

"why dont you just get a new head sent. I dont see the issue. did CS say no new head ?
The Chinese New Year has and will slow stuff down for a couple of weeks, so please be patient. But if you have an issue, im sure 3A CS can help, and if you dont get any help ask Gimbat for assistance.
my thing is to make art, design stuff, I just dont have time to scout the forum, wish I did. If you have an issue please contact 3A etc, thats the best way. If you get told to fuck off or just suck it down, thats different, contact me via the info@threeaonline.com mail."
"if anything is wide spread we know, shit always gonna happen. we have never told any customer when we are at fault to suck it, if you are, tell me !"

On 3A Customer Service work and how it's essential to contact them (not just posting on the board, when you have the problem):
im just no the best to ask
I watched CS when I was in HK, I see what they do, where they help, they do a great job, CS are 3A !
just remember, tell CS, i know its great to say fuck 3A, lame ass toys, look at this shit guys, they suck, but if you want a 3A error corrected you have to contact us as well. Only way we can help
Look with the paintings I have to do and my 3A design workload i have xip time for shit these days, ill miss stuff here, dont rely on forums for help, email us !!!!

Whether AK Ankou EX head/neck situation is a manufacture fault:
no fault I know off, but is still sucks !
where not a shy company to admit error, if there was a problem we would say as always.
there is no issue I know off, we shall send you a new neck and head, all shall be cool.
there will always be some defects, your assuming too much based on your own situation. 3A is sorry that it happened and we will put it right.

To summarize what was said by Ashley today and many times before:
If you have ANY problem with your 3A toys, please contact 3A customer service - cs@threeaonline.com . Just posting on the forum will not solve anything, as CS is the only official channel for repairs and replacements. If you feel that communication is going in a wrong way (whether there is language barrier or general misunderstanding) please feel free to contact me or our other MODs , as we will be willing to help you. And as a last resort you can contact Ashley Wood via info@threeaonline.com , but please keep in mind that he is very busy and answer might take some time.

On 2000 AD Ro-Jaws!
what can I say, i dont have a finished sample, when i do ill show it.
he is cool, very sharp toy, its on point.
dont worry guys it wont be long before you can say ash sucks, 3A HAS RUINED RO-JAWS AND 2000ad
More 2000AD figures coming?
rogue, johnny, all the abc warriors , dredd etc
the classics, we are going as fast as possible, the market isnt there to support a quick fire releases, Mongrol was a break even affair, so we have to be careful. If the fans want them, we shall do our best to give em !


Early images of Ro-Jaws!, which we saw in 3AVOX:

MGS REX is awesome!
I had a good play with the REX in HK, its a stunning toy/model etc. I love the rail gun, i just kept making it RAIL, looks great in low light, will make some epic photographs.
me too, long time coming ! - Ash can't wait for REX release , as we all are.

When we will see Popbot 7Bones Queeny?

Alice Andrenochrome about WWRp JDF Armstrong and why it is his favorite figure of the year (taken from TRE blog):

January - 2012  3u2BFt

"Japan Charity 1G JDF EMGY Armstrong from ThreeA. This toy completely sets the spotlight on the people of Japan, who had to endure the devastating 2011 earthquake and all of the tragedy that followed. ThreeA made it to support the Japanese people, and all proceeds where transferred to the Japanese Red Cross. Looking at this little robot, I realize that despite all the toughness out there, there are still a lot of good people willing to help when they can. The JDF EMGY Armstrong, holding out a helping hand, my favorite toy of 2011."

Keep your eyes open and wallets ready! There has been a talk for offering more limited editions and quality prints for a while. And here is Ashey about prints and prints store...so far we had prints only at Bambalandstore, not sure whether Ashley meant separate section or offering it elsewhere:
the long awaited print store is getting closer...

Popbot Blind Cowboy and Ghosthorse set reviews by Moggie215 and Yama86 - love these guys! Why plug two reviews in the news you might ask? Well, Moggie's review is enthusiastic and cheerful, it's more like unboxing of the figure then detailed reviews (he is working on the detailed one) and Yama's reviews are always on point and giving you lots and lots of details. So whichever you chose, you can't fail (I recommend both though).

I'm always open to criticism , proposals and suggestions, so please feel free to contact me via PM, if you have anything on your mind. Yesterday, I received an interesting one from Tome Worapivut. As you probably know, most of 3A figures have interesting lines / quotes on the boxes ( For example: "We are not interested in the possibilities of defeat. - Nom Commanders ), so how about collecting all of them in one thread on 3A forum? Will you be wiling to participate? If yes click the link and please contribute: http://www.threeaonline.com/forum/index.php?topic=2384.new#new
Please don't confuse quotes and with WWR information about bots, as some of it already gathered here.

As Popbot 7Bones Queeny sale is approaching (January 30th, 9:00AM Hong-Kong time) and it's only two days and 8 hours left. So I decided to share two rather old and yet awesome photos of TQs by ikar11 - and amazing TQs collection by JENGO

Ashley asking whether we want more epic sets, like Popbot Blind Cowboy and Ghosthorse and teasing some cool and unheard stuff, like ZLOGO Jeep.
my flu is passing finally, good to see the Blind one making the rounds.
you guys want more sets like this, Bleak with chopper, grunts and a ZLOGO jeep etc


Commenting on photos by our boardies:

Popbot 7Bones Queeny story in beautiful comic made by Ashley:

January - 2012  HPwWnt

And I specifically took the liberty to make a screenshot, featuring whole Popbot 7Bones team: Wasabi TK, Kyoku Oyabun and Queeny...and four unknown characters.

January - 2012  GGyeSt

I heard that people are debating whether Archer TK will make it into 7Bones, currently all we know about this mysterious figure is what Ashley told us that he is going to be last Tomorrow King and this set of quotes bellow, which was said long time ago (May 2010), after we saw Archer TK painting in Ashley's blog - direct entry:

"the archer is 最後の父, with 最終出身"
"last father , final born"
"you want the final TK story ?, and they thought they would last forever, like the first kiss."
"i never thought about a toy, just a little story in my head, the final grown TK on the run with the last born. tragic and cool.Ill see what I can do"


The art itself (from May 2010)

Ashley answering whether we might get this comic together with Queeny:
still waiting for a confirm on shipping, it has just gone u again, that 3AA discount is gonna help this year !

Beautiful photo by ictoys, I dig the red scarf touch

January - 2012  BkIfEt

Latest entry from Ashley's blog, confirming that giclees/print store is in the works:

January - 2012  XVLkwt

Ashley Wood giclee's
Over ten years ago I used to make Iris prints and then Giclee's of my work, soon i'll be offering an ongoing selection of my work printed and agonized over by me and T P. We are making a new store to handle these and other stuff. Check back soon for more info!


Leader of Seven Bones, First Tomorrow Queen, which without a doubt makes her very important character. And know we now that future of mankind lies in her hands. She moves as though, she lives a moment ahead of all. Her name became that of legend and mystery, she is Queeny !!!
This legendary figure goes on sale , on www.bambalandstore.com on January 30th, 9:00AM Hong-Kong time. Price - 120$ , with worldwide shipping included in the price.

As it's less than 24 hours to wait for Queeny sale, it's time to open F5 Bar and Grill, bellow is a quick explanation on what beast F5 Bar is.
What is F5 Bar and Grill? It's a cool place, where we all hang out before the sale starts, sharing excitement, our thoughts and whatnot, and trying our best to stay on topic (we aren't always succeed though).
So, with F5 Bar going up 7Bones thread is reserved for Q&A about Queeny sale and reporting problems (bambalandstore issues and whatnot), all the other chatter must go in F5 bar.
Have fun in the bar, but don't forget basic rules and maintaining positive vibes of our beloved 3A board. Since F5 Bar during the sale is really crowded and grows like several pages in few minutes, all the essential sales info + sketches will be posted in the first opening post of the F5 thread. So before asking a question, please check the first page of the bar for answers. You can always PM me (or other MODs) if you some questions and you don't want to post them publicly.
Usually we don't allow interpretations of 3A/Ashley Wood intellectual property and characters. But as our tradition goes only on sale nights, we are making an exception and looking forward to your sketches , featuring Queeny /TQs on them. I'll be putting them up here and in F5 Bar, later on they will be added to online gallery on imgur as well, with captions, so it will be seen who is the author of each sketch, which is always nice. If I missed your sketch, please never hesitate to contact me.
Here is the link to F5 Bar:

Ashley posting in F5 Bar:
"queeny day woot !"
"no secret drops, benny dont like the hate mail, plus i think new 3AA should have a cruisey start to 2012.
its rude to upstage a lady as well !"
"man, i cant believe we are at the end of jan 2012
....."
"got another flu from Hk, im so sick of getting them, i never get sick if I dont fly anywhere. gah....."

the tk dont like animals, too easy for the whisper to control etc, bite them in their sleep.
i guess I can do a super set version of the shogun 7b, with a big head etc. that could be cool, but make it more expensive, which aint

Queeny sale starts in less than one hour from now, on January 30th 9:00AM Hong Kong time at www.bambalandstore.com

Confirmation that Archer TK isn't member of 7Bones:
archer aint a 7b, he is the last TK, if you dont include the infant Tk he carries

Ashley on Tomorrow Kings variety:
many different Tks and jobs they do !

No Chinese New Year TQ this month....but Easter TQ is a possibility:
no cny tq this year, cant afford the time at the hatchery ! easter though...

7Bones Queeny could be pulled out from the store earlier (not for 3AA members though, who have 24 hours buying window), so please don't sit on the fence, if you want one.
3AA will have 24 hours, thats what matters, general release can be pulled at any time.

Who is the next TK? Popbot Lady Sham is coming!
i think a non 7B tk next.
but sham first

if tou have an issue, email 3A, DONT WAIT, dont use other methods or work arounds. tell us, we will fix it.

Ashley commenting on this rule: Orders are not transferable to third parties, basically whether 3A can ship your order to another person (based on your preference of course – everything is explained bellow)
we are not supposed to change addresses, some paypal rule, but we do sometimes, but we are cutting down on flippers buying and then having the sold toy sent to another person.

7Bones Queeny estimated shipping time is April 2012 and new rules from Bambalandstore:

Now we know who is the real enemy of WWR Caesar (and next ver. of Caesar - called XAESAR) on the battlefield and his name is NERO
Caesar is the best all round bot, close quarters your fucked, only from a good range do ya have hope, sniper, Large martin etc.
of course every predator has a predator, Caesar has NERO.

NERO is the counter to Caesar and the Caesar upgraded XAESAR

How is WWR Xaexar's name correctly pronounced?
zay-zar i think would the way
Darwin is very paranoid, the worst case of the old woman swallowing the fly syndrome ever !
