Gregory about 3A Apparel TK SDCC t-shirts (which come with awesome bullet container) designs and prices:
"the information i have says 4 variants, but i haven't seen pics yet of all of them so i can't confirm which designs will be there"
"shirts are $50 and $40 for 3AA"

Latest from Ashley's art blog:
A lot of people have asked if i was going to sell another print before sdcc or art for those not going etc. I was not going too, but it seems so many are not attending I would do something...dont know what yet, but ill post soon !

Ashley is talking about print sales at Ashley Wood Gallery store, which is located here:
Usually, Ashley puts the prints up at the Gallery and updates his blog. I can't update my news column in time to warn everyone (and it's not my priority in this case), so if you want a print, you have stay vigilant and keep an eye out.

Don't know about you guys, but I am always looking forward to photos from Ashley studio, like the ones in this update from his blog:
grainy studio shots
Here are some ropey studio shots, showing bits and pieces in progress. Im banging away for the Levine show, Im cautiously optimistic about these paintings.. to sound like an art pounce, they show a advanced in my art language. its kinda easy to make an obvious cool image, it kinda becomes superfluous, but to make something more, a deeper narrative etc takes more a more delicate touch.. yup that sounded pretty pouncey, but I thought I would share !

July - 2012 KbryRtJuly - 2012 S7JattJuly - 2012 0lcgCt

I noticed a bit of confusion about the update bellow:
US and EU 3A distro
From our next 3A retail toy, we are going back to our old ways for US and EU distro prior to our dealings with sideshow etc! To be clear as of now we have decided to have no exclusive deals for these regions and handle them in-house. Just like old times again !

Basically only retailers are affected by the changes and nothing happening with our exclusive shop – Bambalandstore and customers can still use it. Retailers in US and EU now can deal with ThreeA directly, like back in the day.

Gregory sharing some news about SDCC:
here will be posters available, but i don't have the dimensions nor what the posters will actually be of. everything is currently being shipped to IDW and i won't know until i pick up and sort stuff on the 10th or 11th.
plans change. you all should be used to this by now. ash says sell merch on preview night, we now sell merch on preview night. at least we're giving a week's notice. purchasable items ie books and shirts
you will not be able to pick up your pre-order on preview night though. those will commence thursday through sunday on the allotted days each individual chose.

As days go by , I am getting more & more excited about SDCC! Sadly I can't make it to SDCC this year, but I will do best in updating my news column, blog, Facebook, twitter and whatnot – with latest news and photos I can get. It's never hurts to have more eyes at SDCC, so if you want to help me with photos (and share them with the Legion) and whatnot, don't hesitate to contact me.

Kenny Wong keeps making us all happy, as he lets out new images of ThreeA and Kenny Wong 1/12th scale Sea Monkey into the wild:

As I mentioned previously: AK Zombkin , AP Popbot release and 7Bones Kyoku are about to ship out. Can't wait for you guys to receive them and make some awesome photos!


Solid Gold Death Mask prints from Rufus Dayglo: , great news (at least for t-shirts maniacs, like me) that SGDM t-shirts are coming soon!

I thought that tomsix6 has such a vivid and crazy imagination, that it would be just crazy, not to share his photos with bigger audience. Stripping WWR Dropcloth, AK Zombs, WWR Men from N.O.M , sounds so wrong and yet it looks SO fun.

In SDCC thread at our forum, Gregory confirmed that there are four t-shirts designs , coming in sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL and according to him, there are 130 t-shirts in total for SDCC.

Gregory explains Ashley's signing policy here (click for detailed quote)

Cody (ennui), commenting about SDCC t-shirts fit and their quality here (detailed quote)
Partial quote here:
"The process has definitely changed. All the t-shirts from RVHK are using a bleaching and dying process in favour of silk screen so there are absolutely no breathing problems.
This is 3A Apparel's preferred method now, and will be used on all future shirts until we find an even better process.
The t-shirt quality itself has improved immensely as well, and they are softer and more comfortable than the old super-cotton ones."

Btw, Ash's signing schedule changed a bit for Friday, please check it out:

Latest update from Ashley's blog, considering prints & shipping:
Prints Update
Just a quick thank you to all of you who ordered the "War Fixers" print. This is just a memo to let all know that we are currently shipping behind, due to studio and equipment damage. As many of you who read this blog know, we have been a little inconvenienced in the last few weeks due to a pipe bursting at the studio - and all of the wooden floors getting wrecked. We are just about over this problem now and the tradesmen are almost done finally. Over the course of this week we will be assigning DHL shipping numbers to all of your accounts - these numbers will be able to be tracked after pick up - pick up will occur after SDCC is complete. We apologize for the delay. TP

Just got a confirmation from HK, that first ever AK 1/12th & 1/6th scale 2pack set: Zombkin, comes with a poster, like all AK releases. Zombkin starts shipping this week!

Gregory shed some light on SDCC bullet shaped t-shirt containers size: "the t shirt container boxes are: 15.5" x 5" x 5"and weight: .45 kg"

July - 2012 CDta1t

This some people still ask about this: each person , who will be buying t-shirts at SDCC, can pick up their favorite design and size, t-shirts aren't blind boxed.

Latest updates from Ashley's blog by T.P:
Okay so it's probably a little bit of a misnomer to call this post "Photo Tsunami" as this post actually doesn't come with any photographs. Hello again, my name is T.P and yes folks it's that time of year all over again - SDCC!! Every year we blog it, some years are more successful attempts than others - this year though I think is going to be our best coverage yet since Ash and I have made plans for a photo tsunami!!! (Man, I love exclamation marks - they're so useful but not - don't email me your grammatical arguments plz!!)

So let's talk SDCC - first and foremost I would like to thank 3A Legion's Kimberley for helping make our up and coming photo onslaught possible. And then I would like to say a special thank you to the ThreeA team which this year includes the following guests: The amazing Phil Hale, Phil is flying in from the UK to sign his new book (produced by 3A) don't miss it, it's awesome. The irrepressible William Wray (he's an amazing fine artist based in LA). And last but certainly not least the incredible Rufus Dayglo. Rufus as many of you know is producing a new book through 3A entitled Solid Gold Death Mask - coming soon, also fab. A get well soon also goes out to Rufus' creative partner - we hope that you're home soon and that you feel better.

Now - I also want to mention a couple of things as they come to mind - 1) if you're a subscriber - we love you, hang in there, I know, I fill up your inbox like a crazy lady every year around this time. And 2) We're inking another movie deal this year - this one for LORE - (if you hang around the IDW booth who knows what action you might catch). However! - last year people took photos off of this blog and spread em around - fine it's the internet - yadda yadda, whatever, but if you are a commercial site/blog and you make money off of your entries (take note that this blog is advertisement free!!!) - mention where you got the photos - it's courtesy people nuff said.

Coming up soon NYC art exhibition at the Jonathan Levine Gallery (October) and a smaller surprise happening (Decemberish) TBA.

Get your signatures and sketches in this weekend if you're attending SDCC - Ash and I are working flat out on The Beautiful War project for the entire of 2013 - no if ands or buts and we're doing it from an as of yet undisclosed location - it's gonna make this blog pop - hint it's not Mars.

^I am particularly excited about "The Beautiful War" and "Lore" movie, can't wait to hear more about this!

And SDCC update:
Breakfast and Schedules
SDCC is a hop, skip and jump away from commencement now - if you're attending the event please refer to the ThreeA blog for signing schedules.

Considering July 12th sale for 3AA members, I am still waiting to hear about few things. All I can say with a certainty that books and three SDCC figures will be available at Bambalandstore . Sale starts on July 12th, 9:00AM Hong Kong time.

I already wrote about AP Boba Fett figure few times, but it's such a small masterpiece that nothing wrong about covering it once more. Here you can find the review by Eric. Few pics from the review shown bellow:

An update from Rufus Dayglo, about his presence at SDCC: I'll be at the IDW COMICS / 3A TOYS booth all weekend! I have some official signing times on Thursday-Saturday, but I'll be at the booth most of the come say hello. If I'm not there, swing back around...I've probably wandered off to steal stuff, or kick cosplayers in the knackers.
I'll be signing the limited edition SOLID GOLD DEATH MASK SDCC exclusive print, and any Tank Girl tat you bring along.
Can't wait to see you all there!

July - 2012 FHkBLt

From IDWPublishing twitter: We've found a few extra of ZOMBs! We'll be drawing names at random for a chance to buy 1 at SDCC

And last, but not the least. Guys, if you are among lucky people who are going to be at SDCC, please take plenty of pics of ThreeA booth for me and send them to my [email]gimbat at[/email] or via PM, will be happy to share them and give you credit (of course). There are few colleagues and friends who will be helping me with the pics, but the more pics - the better! Thanks.


With less than one hour to wait for SDCC allotment sale for 3AA members at Bambalandstore, I thought it would be convenient to make a quick F5 Bar and Grill thread, where people can discuss the sale (even though, I wasn't planning on having one, thinking that this sale will be quick, so F5 bar loses it's purpose).

Old Friends

July - 2012 IUtBSt

Meet Brent Ashe. Brent is one of the most talented designers/art directors working in the field today. Brent and Ash have worked together since their days with Todd McFarlane and have worked together on and off in the years since. In the industry that we work in, you work with someone on a project and then when the project is over usually everyone moves on, but sometimes you make friends and those enduring friendships last. I think also this applies to professional relationships too. Ash, as many of you know, is exacting when it comes to his own sense of design and Brent is one of the very rare few whose design aesthetic Ash trusts when it comes to his work. As a side note, if you're a video game fan, Brent is one of the fine people who brought you the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Thank You William Wray!

July - 2012 Yy5Nrt

Now these are the kinds of things that you would see nowhere else but on this blog!! Today you would know the artist William Wray for his fine art, his amazing paintings of bleak urban landscapes made spookily beautiful, his great hulking trains... but in the 1990's William Wray was also the creator of a cartoon called Ren and Stimpy which was a phenomena and is still well loved today. Scary to think that we used to see the episodes new! Our kids discovered the cartoon through re-runs and were hooked. Their favorite character is the Surly Chicken and they're always going on about it so Bill, (who has well moved on into the fine art realm), took a step back in time to put a smile on the kids faces - and hopefully on yours too - thank you Bill!

Getting Ready to Move...

July - 2012 6N4SSt

Here is a link to an a pic of the very first ThreeA booth!!!!! Thanks to Gregory, Cody and the crew:)

This is a pic of Brent and Bill in Ash's hotel room. Don't underestimate the majesty of getting a closet to stay in during San Diego this time of year!! We usually book our SDCC rooms for the next year when we're checking out from the last...

More from Ashley's blog, this time about "The Beautiful war"
This weekend marks a really cool milestone for me and Ash. We're book people, we love books, we love reading them, we love making them but as we've gone on we've become sticklers for detail, enjoyment, richness. I saw a post by someone who was commenting on the need to create and how ultimately he'd love to be able to create like Ash. So as we're waiting for the photos to come down I thought I'd talk a little about our new project: The Beautiful War.

The Beautiful War series is going to be the main focus of our personal projects come 2013. Once again it's a full collaborative effort and we hope at this stage that the series will work out to be about four times longer in span than Lore.

The way we work together makes it a long process to create a series of books like this, in this case even before ink hits the paper, The Beautiful War has so far been four years in the making, and that's just the prep.

The original working title for this project was Le Jardin or The Garden. Four years ago we discussed creating the story and then I went away and wrote a full length novel based on our ideas. The novel was then read to Ash during his evening painting sessions and then little by little we exploded it and reimagined it, (taking detailed notes along the way), a second full length novel was then written, bringing the story closer to that which we had envisioned together.

As it goes you will likely never read the novels, the creation of novel length stories in this case was part of my own working process, the story is complex, detailed and rich (just like we like it). And then comes the magic moment - Ash breaks out a blank sketchbook and then it's definitely on!

In Ash's studio he keeps a pile of well used sketchbooks and each sketchbook is full of every detail of every story, property and toy design carefully imagined, re-worked, fine tuned and re-imagined all over again. WWR has several sketchbooks devoted to it of varying sizes but the thing that was most exciting about that project is that I got to watch as he literally translated those amazing images into fully realized paintings.

Perhaps for me the project is closer to Lore than WWR, as even though I wrote the words in the WWR books, Ashley fully originated that story by himself and I merely translated it for him onto the page, he'd already crafted the WWR world from start to finish before I ever came near it.

So, what does it take then to create like Ash? Well I think it's silly for people to compare their own working process to either of us because everyone is different and should allow for themselves to be different or you'll just mentally lock yourself up and get nowhere. I think it is also important to acknowledge that every creative person has to start somewhere, and yes, 1000 pages from now you will be a better creator than when you started on page one but if you don't have the courage to put pen to paper on page one, then the point is moot because you will never see page 1000 to reflect.

Somethings happen faster than others but on collaborative projects... on average the prep is actually about 3-4 years in the making. As for Ash, his career is 20 years plus in the making... so go easy on yourself if you're starting on page one today, knowing that page 1000 is in fact only 999 pages away and in the grand scheme of things when spread out over years 999 pages isn't all that much after all:)

Pics from our booth at SDCC, by James (anubis2night)

July - 2012 IKwSetJuly - 2012 Gp7EStJuly - 2012 OponAtJuly - 2012 IFdmotJuly - 2012 Ss9DNtJuly - 2012 BnH1nt

SDCC allotment sale is still happening at Bambalandstore (few things are gone though). There was some confusion with Mompty Tom Tom during first minutes of the sale, as it was mentioned in the description that shipping was included in the price and yet, it's still was calculated during the checkout. "Shipping included in the price" was a mistake, it was noticed by HK office and was removed from the description. The thing is that SDCC exclusives back in June (for local pick-up at SDCC) were offered cheaper, as shipping wasn't included in the price.

Here is a comparison for instance. Price at SDCC:

July - 2012 Jz8amm

Price at Bambalandstore (without shipping):

July - 2012 U6rfZm

It's the same price, 3AA price just more rounded up (30$ instead of 29.75$) for SDCC sales at the spot to make dealing with cash easier.

Not everyone read WWR Mighty Brillo Squaro description, which said that it doesn't come with WWR Supplement (unlike SDCC pick-up version) and that raised some confusion as well.

July - 2012 BMSfRm

Estimated shipping time for SDCC exclusives offered today is 4th quarter of 2012. That's because they aren't manufactured yet, unlike SDCC pick-up ones, which are already at San Diego Convention Hall and waiting to be picked up.

As I mentioned previously, t-shirts will be offered at a later date (once I know more, I will notify about it).

Sadly Bambalandstore version of Zombie wasn't offered today, as there were some serious complications which stood in the way. I'm waiting to hear more about it, so I can give you a full breakdown. Our boardie C R E M, provided some details, quoting Toygodd's words (who is currently at SDCC and asked Ashley about the Zombie). You can read it here. Currently I can't confirm or deny anything.

I try not to write my own thoughts that much here, but today I feel like saying something. Unfortunately I don't live in US and traveling to SDCC, always been pretty impossible and expensive for me. First time I visited SDCC last year and I for one know, how it is heartbreaking when you see SDCC exclusives for sale and knowing that you can't get them. So I really love how we went above and beyond for 3AA members and general audience this year with Re-Venture and SDCC sales, offering a convenient way, when you can buy something from the comfort of your home. All three SDCC exclusives: WWR Mighty Squaro, ThreeA and VALVe Weighted Companion Square and ThreeA and VALVe 1:1 Sandvich were offered today and 3AA members had fair chances to buy them.

All 3A Publishing books which premiered at SDCC , made it to Bambalandstore today as well: Mompty Tom Tom (56 pages full color, 12″x12″, hardcover) and Phile Hale – Empire (175 pages, 12′x12″) plus William Wray's "Cult of Beauty", which premiered at Re-Venture earlier this year.

This Made Us Smile

July - 2012 XsGbEt

One of the best things about going to events such as SDCC is the amazing people that you get to meet. Custom toy maker/sculptor Ronald Lu is one of those amazing people. If you followed our previous events coverage you might have seen a picture that we posted of a super cool handcrafted carded Stormtrooper that was made to look just like Ash. This year Ron is back with yet another super cool creation. As many of you know we lost our beloved Eddy this year, (Eddy being the true kitty of Popbot fame), and so Ronald has paid tribute by encasing him in carbonite - Eddy would be thrilled, we certainly are - thanks again.

T-Shirts and Sandviches!

July - 2012 9YYKat

This year we have our own booth space for ThreeA and there is one product there that I was kinda worried about shipping. Ash decided earlier in the year to make the T-Shirt container look just like a tank shell and I said to him at the time - "Customs is going to stop that and we're going to get a bill in the mail!" To my surprise the container didn't worry anyone and our samples got through....

One week later... we were expecting samples for the Valve Sandvich. Let's face it if you love Heavy as much as we love Heavy... you can't be a girly man.. you just gotta have a sandvich. So we waited, nothing arrived and we waited, nothing arrived and then we got a notice and a bill in the mail... seems that the quarantine dept. had scanned our package and found something in the shape of a... well a Sandvich! We eventually got the package... but we also had to pay the bill... quarantine checks it seems are not free.

Some Scenes From the ThreeA Booth

July - 2012 WUjEytJuly - 2012 VTB6TtJuly - 2012 L5ngKt

Do you see not weathered WWR Mighty Squaro above? Looks bloody well and it has nothing to do with regular SDCC Mighty Squaro , as this one is a special version.

Just to be clear, current books: Mompty Tom Tom, Phil Hale - Empire, William Wray - Cult of Beauty , which are available at Bambalandstore at the moment, will be available until they are sold out and books aren't 3AA exclusive (unlike figures were).

WWR Mighty Squaro left Bambalandstore and it means that July 12th SDCC exclusive sale for 3AA members is over. Books are still available for everyone though at

It's hard to do the news, when you are thousands of miles away from SDCC. Unlike Re-Venture updates and photos, when I had good camera and laptop on me, and could do photos request and constantly taking pics for you guys. But thankfully James Brown is helping me and I hope my recent updates are interesting for you. Here are photos of signing sessions from our booth, all taken by James Brown

AP Tomorrow Queen - even though, I'm huge WWR fan, APTQs and AP Little Shadow are definitely the biggest bomb of SDCC.

What's special about that photo you might ask? Look at it again and check what says on our ThreeA banner under Totem. heh...psyched about this! While we are waiting for official announcement, you can discuss what awaits us here.

Our forum MODs and members of ThreeA Internet Division team are currently at SDCC. Gregory and Cody are busy working at the booth, James is our eyes (kindly agreed to take photos for us) and is willing to be our mouth as well, as he offered that he can ask Ashley Wood and Kim Fung Wong questions. Please use this thread to submit your questions.

And here are some answers and personal comments from James:
The new bambaboss is great, ash mentioned that he had a few variations on it and many ideas for colors and such. As we all know The original bamba has been around since 2009 so it's likely we will see the new version for a while at least in a few styles (more on that I'm sure)

Capcom news is awesome but I haven't seen t announced so can't say anything much yet.

Aptq's I got to play a bit with them the attention to details is amazing. Very stylized .

Microman is moving along well. Ash mentioned that he was originally going to use 1:12 bodies as they had the design but he changed his mind and is doing something new. More info I'm sure to come.

New dropcloth 1.5 has a Gatling

Botrider ladies - as seen months ago in a blurry - ash is very excited about these lots of details like nothing we've seen yet. He went into specifics a bit but I think that it's better to wait, sound like hopefully around December for those (again I think it's just based on when he feels they are ready as well as production window opening)

Direct link to that comment.

WWR JDF Harold for Goodsmile:

Now we know precise height of the Harold and it is: 36cms tall.

Unfortunately I never played in VALVe's Team Fortress 2 game, so I asked our all knowing Legion about Steam Codes for the game and what exactly they do (ThreeA x VALVe Team Fortress 2 Sandvich and ThreeA x VALVe Weighted Companion Square come with Steam cards). Here is a quick review by Salstadt:
I entered the Valve codes today and apparently each card unlocks a unique item in Team Fortress 2 (including one that is DEFINITELY Ash-related). Exactly what they are is unknown, as they can't be revealed (or used) in-game until an undisclosed later date. Once they go live, though, I'll snatch some more pics and video for ya.

Here are few screenshots from the game, showing cards backside and gifts in the game characters inventory:

I added shipping markers to our shipping process map for Popbot 7Bones Kyoku , AK Zombkin and AP Popbot release: , please use them , so Legion members (who are waiting) could watch the progress.

Good news from Gregory, that if all goes according to plan MGS REX is going to ship in the end of August. Direct link here.

And more about shipping:
SDCC magic is sadly over and it’s time to cover some shipping news.

What we have shipped last week?

AP Popbot release (all figures)
Popbot 7Bones Kyoku release
AK Zombkin

We plan to ship three Adventure Kartel line releases: 1/12th scale AK Zombs, AK Palm in the Face Sunday JC and AK Rehel figures towards the end of July.

Please don’t forget that you are more than welcomed to contact our customer service professionals at , if you have problems with your figures or want to find out something about your order (whether it’s tracking address, additional information or anything else). And if you prefer social networks, you can reach out for advice to 3Asupport on twitter or checkout our official 3AVOX page on Facebook.

Ash thanks everyone for the support in his blog:
Alive and Kicking
Im back and I have to say that was the most fun SDCC I have ever had on many levels!

I really want to thank everyone that swung by the 3A booth, it's absolutely inspiring as an artist to have such great fans and supporter's, I feel re-energized after such a great time.

I also want to thank the Ladies and Gentlemen that made sure the 3A booth ran smoothly and took care of many problems with a smile and good humor.. Serious issues like finding me Adventure Time toys for my sons!

Back to finishing the art for the great Jeremy Geddes / Ashley Wood art show in October, the the adventure begins !

Lovers and Haters, your all awesome !

And thank you post by T.P Louise
Thank you to everyone who has made this trip so great this year, old friends and new, it was nice to see and hear from you all. Ash will make a brief appearance Sunday before heading off to catch a plane to make the long journey home.

A special thank you also to the whole ThreeA team, to Ted Adams, Robbie Robbins and the whole IDW team, Rick J and Rick P and everyone else who pulls for the home team!

Stay tuned for future awesomeness - I've enjoyed being your hostess this year as always,

Best T.P Louise (Paula)

Our boardie , well known TK collector and forum veteran Devours speaking about upcoming Popbot 7Bones Shogun , who is not so far away from Bambalandstore pre-order.
Ash said I would be so excited by Shogun, I would pee my pants.
And considering that has not happened since I was nine, it must be a pretty big deal.
Shogun sounds like an ambitious TK.


AK Cherry Bomb, which was teased some time ago is coming this month to Bambalandstore. According to Ash's post on ThreeA blog: "maybe slippery sale....maybe not." It means that AK Cherry Bomb might go up at Bambalandstore, without any a sort of surprise sale. To remind you: 3AA members don't have an advantage for surprise sales (except 3AA discount).

TK T-shirts seen at SDCC will go on sale next Wednesday, July 25th at 9:00AM Hong Kong time, at , I was told that each t-shirt comes with a shipping container. I got to warn you, that Bambalandstore prices for t-shirts might be more expensive than SDCC prices – which were 50$ , as they didn't include worldwide shipping. Here are pics of t-shirts from SDCC, taken by James (anubis2night)

some art is progress for Levine, its funny how many get so bent out of shape over sexual material in the art world, from artists to curators to viewers... I think its great the Levine gallery has imposed no rules on me, a nice change!

You can read more about Jonathan Levine Gallery here. Ashley Wood exhibition starts on Oct 20 and lasts till Nov 17, 2012.


Action Portable Slicer TK Baka and Kyuuketsuki on sale next week, only at Bambalandstore! Previously on the blog , it was mentioned that they will be offered via resident sale – which basically means that they will be up at Bambalandstore for a few days (but it depends on a demand, as we can produce only certain amount of these APTKs). These are in 1/12th scale and super fun to play with!
July - 2012 FHIsNtJuly - 2012 O5ELQt

It doesn't know yet, whether Interbaka TK (which was a chase during Baka sale) going to be offered together with AP Baka and Slicer, or there are special plans for him.

If you never played with 1/12th scale Tomorrow King bodies by ThreeA, please checkout this review of AP Hatchery Guard TK by our boardie Yama86.

AP Zombs , AK Sunday JC and AK Rehel release figures are shipping out this week. They are already given to the forwarder , but signal 10 Typhoon , which lashed on HK yesterday slows shipping a bit down. However, we can expect photos of these Adventure Kartel releases popping up soon here and there!


As mentioned several times previously, today on 9:00 AM Hong Kong time Old Guard Tomorrow King lifesize t-shirts were offered at Bambalandstore. Wide range of sizes were offered from small to XXL. T-shirts were quickly sold out at the store as they were pre-made. I am waiting to hear from Hong Kong, how soon they are shipping to the customers. Oh and t-shirts were 50$ + shipping.

I was always interested in Ma.K figures, but somehow I was always observing this figures from distance and now I'm really looking forward to laying my hands on Krote and looking forward it's Bambalandstore sale. Meanwhile, if you are in Japan or going to Wonder Festival, you can see Krote there:

Swing by Wonderfest Japan this month, and check out the Ma.k. Krote 1/12th at the 3A-Goodsmile booth! (from ThreeA blog)

Wonder Festival in Japan starts on July 29th, here is their official site: (Japanese only)

News about our exclusive retailer at Taiwan:
Beast Kingdom is now our exclusive distributor for Taiwan!

As there is usually language barrier and confusion with such news, I'll explain in details what it means. This will not affect private customers, who want to keep shopping from Bambalandstore in any way. It means that Beast Kingdom will exclusively carry our retailer products and you can pre-order retailer versions of our products from them.

If you are long time around ThreeA , you know well what an essential role Ashley Wood has and how he participates in each and every process. Unfortunately he wasn't feeling well this week and that's why APTK sale date was hanging in the air and there wasn't much information about them. Today it got confirmed, that APTK are going up at Bambalandstore on July 27th, 9:00AM Hong Kong time. I'm waiting to hear for more information (prices and whatnot) to share them with you.
Thank you for your patience with this upcoming release (which already attracted some serious EMO, as everyone loves TKs)!

I got to admit that ZvR Zombie was my favorite SDCC exclusive, even dwarfing impressive WWR Mighty Squaro. What can I say? I love Zombies! Here is an interesting review of IDW ZvR Zombies by can be found [url=]here. Couple of photos from his review:

It's great that AP Kyuuketsuki comes with severed LW 53 robot head, just like his 1/6th scale brother. And I think we already saw LW 53 robot head in 1/12th scale on this shot next to AP Tommy Mission:

July - 2012 MgaTMt

Everyone is naturally asking about prices, but sadly I don't have any price data to report. If we look back and don't take into consideration: Action Portable Tomorrow King Oyabuns, which were offered as part of 3AA 2011 package (150$) and Action Portable Tomorrow King with severed bot head (100$ and limited to one per person) only Popbot Action Portable TK Yellow Hornets Set (65$ + 20$ for shipping) and Action Portable Hatchery Guard TK (30$ + 12$ for shipping) made it to Bambalandstore.

I hope that APTKs will be up at Bambalandstore for a while, giving a good opportunity for everyone to buy one. Sale starts on July 27th, 9:00AM Hong Kong time at

Meanwhile we have F5 Bar and Grill dedicated to the sale to concentrate on:

I am really looking forward to your sketches and I hope that it's going to be a fun bar (even though it opened slightly later than usual, but it's somehow becoming a new pattern for F5 bars)!

Latest update from Ashley's blog (which partly explains lack of APTK news this week):
a heads up
Naturally I got the flu from going to SDCC, so im feeling pretty out of it with lots of work to do for Levine adding to the melee. Just thought I would share that uplifting moment.
Prints are shipping out due to Paula's hard work ( thanks to all for being patient ), ill just languish in the corner pale and removed.

AK Rehel and Dragos Eraphis already surfaced in Asia. Here are first pics by our boardie Arroneous422 and Dan Teo, who posted pics on my Facebook wall (and I am certainly looking forward for more!).

AP Fighting JC surprise:

Surprise for 3AA members: TWO OYA TK 2pack:
"For 3AA only and still limited ! start your ACTION PORTABLE F5 engines"

^Two Oya TK 2pack is a surprise release and is for 3AA members only. It's going up and down at the store inventory, just like any other surprise release...with the only exception - that it's for 3AA members.

Price: 120$

July - 2012 YZpCkt

There is some confusion about this surprise release, however, I'm pretty confident that these are AP Shadow and Light Oyabuns in 1/12th scale. If you will look into these photos bellow, which show Popbot Shadow and Light Oyabuns in 1/6th scale, you will see the same boxart.

July - 2012 Pd5bPtJuly - 2012 BFltlt

According to ThreeA blog, there is high demand for some APTK figures and they might leave the store earlier than planned (earlier than usual 24 hours pre-order).

Some answers from Ashley Wood:
Everything, which was up at Bambalandstore so far: TK Heavies, Slicer, JC and of course 3AA 2pack surprise set is Bambalandstore exclusive and will not be available anywhere else.
Packaging for sets: might be carded, might be boxed, still not decided (as we are still calculating costs).
Interbaka is limited to 3pack only, unlike some thought that it might end up in single Slicer TK orders.
And there will no AK Cherry Bomb sale tonight/today.

Action Portable Baka Slicer TK Kyuuketsuki is now available for 3AA members only (because of high demand). As we can produce only certain amount of the figures. Sorry , if you wanted Kyuuketsuki specifically and thank you for your huge support for this vamp TK!

While we are waiting for AP Zombs to show up and photographed by our boardies (most already shipped out), here is awesome 1/6th scale Zomb kitbash by elektrox. I simply love how these Adventure Kartel creatures look in WWR outfits and gear.

Please PM me if I missed your sketch.

Final post in F5 bar:
Thank you so much for this awesome sale, with 136 pages of F5 bar madness and good amount of inspiring sketches , I know that plenty of people didn't score AP Tracky JC or 3AA AP Oya 2 pack or even Kyu with the bothead (when it became 3AA exclusive), but I hope that you managed to chose what you want out of 3packs or singles. Plus don't forget that AP Fighting JC is def. coming back!
I know that you all are waiting for some AK Cherry Bomb news, all I can say that we will not see her this week.
I hope to see you again at the Halo sale on August 1st (F5 bar opens earlier though).
Cheers guys!

After I posted 1/6th scale Zomb kitbash by elektrox , I received the personal message from Mouse9090 showing his kitbashes , which show a clash of Ashley Wood Universes. I got to say that AK F-Legion figure looks exceptionally interesting, wearing WWR gear.
