I got to say, that I love how the colors pop on him and how great he looks on the bike (which wasn't manufactured by ThreeA and doesn't come with the figure). Speaking about bikes, can't wait for Thumb King chopper!

More bikes and rock'n'roll!

New section by Ashley Wood at ThreeA blog, called: Ashley Wood's Sampling Table, featuring: WWR BcELL Logistics Harold

August - 2012  PT8IutAugust - 2012  4zoD5t

Welcome to my sampling table, its basically a small drawing desk in my studio where I check out new our new toys etc. I figured some of you might be interested in this and some vague thoughts I have on the toys. In this majestic debut, the BcELL Logistics Harold makes a first appearance. BcELL are Rothchild’s robot couriers in short, they get the hardware to the front line, and sometimes lay the strap down as well. When these guys deliver a smushed box, you say thanks and smile ! I guess they are a thinly veiled private army for Rothchild working both sides of the conflict.

After seeing this Harold, I though how cool the new Dropcloth would be in the BcELL colors. Thats the fun part of 3A, i get to design and see my ideas made into solid objects, cant beat that ( oh yea, I still design every character in my worlds at 3A, design the colorways and whatnot etc. If I didnt, it would be like listening to a band that played songs written by other people…LAME!).

Oh yea, thats the AP Fantome running around in the second shot, wondering whether he should be a pack in or otherwise…? Speaking of pack in’s, the Harolds sold on bamba all come with a great pack in, but more later when they go up for sale!

thanks ASH

one note, because will ask, the Harold doesnt have his pouches on!

I wonder what Harold will have in the box, besides interchangeable guns and arms.

WWR JDF Harold which is Goodsmile exclusive is up for pre-order at Goodsmile site: here - Order Dates: Orders can be placed between 29th July 2012 at 17:00HST until the 6th August 2012 at 21:00JST.

but still fun, well to me.. early on in the process, now for the cool bit and pieces and flicks of the pallet knife ! I find the non action scenes of WWR the most interesting, guns firing, explosions are rather boring, its the mundane and less flashy that have my thoughts

Ashley mentioned on August 1st on his blog, that he is planning to put one or two giclee prints at his gallery store:

And here are the prints , which went on sale today and quickly sellout:

RE Prints

Im very flattered that the prints do so well, I honestly believe they will take longer to sell, I have no fantasies that im a super popular artist with the world at my feet, and I certainly dont want that ( i guess my subject matter covers that base ), so thanks guys, its very cool I get to do what I do !
On to a day of painting and listening to Agatha Christie ! I know..., im the coolest artist ever!
Oh yea, i was just reminded i mentioned originals yesterday, ill put some up later, being a gentleman and all !

Original art , which Ashley mentioned above were put up for sale at his gallery store (and already sold): Supreme NOM Original painting. Will be in a WWR book someday !

I already mentioned few times in the past, that Ashley Wood's Gallery sales ain't covered here in real-time - giving heads ups about sales. I only write about them post-factum, to show what happened there. Fist of all, that way it's more honest fro everyone who is passionate about prints and keeping his eyes on Ash's blog 24 x 7 and I'm positive that it's how Ashley would want me to do this.

AK Shit Weather Bleak goes on sale, on August 17th at
Countdown at 3A blog says that it's going to be on 13:00 HK time, but I'm rather sure it's a glitch and it's going to be on 9:00AM HK time as always (well, in 98% of the cases). I'll confirm next week and let you know.

Here are all the images related to AK Shit Weather Bleak or his dog companion, we have seen so far:

I was correct about AK Shit Weather Bleak and that sale should start on August 17th, 9:00AM HK time. Now countdown at ThreeA blog is accurate as well.

2000AD Ro-Jaws photographed by Rufus Dayglo and some comments on design by Rufus:
RO-JAWS! 1/6 scale. Classis colour scheme. I tried to design him up as a cross between Mick McMahon and Kevin O'Neill's classic design!
He's a foulmouthed street cleaner/service robot... He even comes with a turd you can keep in his 'stomach' compartment!

Btw, I asked Ashley about AK Cherry Bomb and he said that he still haven't decided about the sale (whether it's going to be a surprise drop or not).

Something interesting via Bambasia blog (especially if you are going to be in Hong Kong area in late September): ThreeA and BBICN at Sixth ACG Guangzhou-HK-Macao Comic Con (Sept 30 - Oct 4). Click the images for details (in English and Chinese).

Currently not much is going on in ThreeA world, we are waiting for AK Shit Weather Bleak sale, which is scheduled on August 17th, 9:00AM HK time. Answering on one of the FAQs, yes , 3AA members have 24 hours guaranteed buying window for this sale.

I contacted Ashley about AK Cherry Bomb, but currently he still haven't decided whether it's going to be a surprise sale or not. I'll keep you updated though.

Some shipping news:
2000AD Ro-Jaws figures and Old Guard TK t-shirts shipped out and should be already on the way.

and MGS: REX are both huge and insanely complex project by ThreeA. Everyone is insanely excited about them and all the thoughts are to make them perfect. Estimated shipping during pre-order was late August 2012. I'm constantly keeping in touch with HK office and following these (and other projects), so once I hear a definite shipping plans, I'll let you know.

If you were following my SDCC coverage (which wouldn't be brought to you without help of James Brown) you already have seen new Dropcloth and Bambaboss. Here are more cleaner photos, showing some rad poses:

Ashley about Bambalandstore glitches and Robot Island story:
“Sorry for the hassle, these things are waaay out of our hands!
Im excited today, the Bleak and Cherry figure start a new direction for AK, the comic and poster that come with each figure will expand on the FUCKING ROBOT ISLAND story, as an artist, thats the exciting part, through toys and story I can get across my ideas and share my fun !

AK Tracky Bleak makes a surprise appearance today, during Shit Weather Bleak sale. Since it's a surprise release - it goes up and down at Bambalandstore. 3AA members don't have 24 hours buying window for him and everyone is equal (3AA members have their 15% discount though).

Ashley about AK Fucking Tracky Bleak and that there will be no more (after final batch went up):
Fucking Tracky Bleak had taken it off for good..
After Custard has pawned Bleaks gear to cover a raging Goodo addiction, Bleak only had the choice of the AK tracky in his WAR-DROBE. Within 24 hours Bleak had retained his gear from the pawn store “SHOP O SHIT” and forcibly broke Custard’s addiction….!

Declaring that AK Shit Weather Bleak sale is done and announcing that AK MUMBS are next:
Sale end at 9-30am HK time
The Bleak sale comes to end at 9-30am HK time to covdr the snafu at the start of the sale. So cool to see my AK get the support it does, I think the next character to hit is the MUMB !

Who are the mysterious Mumbs? Mumbs were mentioned for a first time back in July 2011 and we thought that they might be Adventure Kartel version of Mummies.
they are awesome, and will make the AK universe more fun !
only one in the Ak universe, a while off still
- quote comes from 2011

I love when we have a lot of art submissions in the F5 bar, this time we have 46! Even though AK Shit Weather Bleak sale ended, I'll keep F5 Bar dedicated to Bleak open for some more hours, in case you want to discuss the sale , talk about Bleak and submit some more sketches.
sketches and art submitted to the bar so far

And we are done!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by at the bar and spent some time with us. Hope you liked this sale and managed to score what you wanted...see ya soon in the next one!

In the light of BBICN exclusives revealed today, here is a reminder about ThreeA and BBICN participating in the Sixth ACG Guangzhou-HK-Macao Comic Con from September 30th to October 4th. Event will be held in the Guangzhou Jinhan Exhibition Center. At this very moment, I can't say with 100% certainty that the exclusives will be available online after Sixth ACG Guangzhou-HK-Macao Comic Con (which is taking place from September 30th to October 4th), please monitor BBICN for more updates or send them an inquiry via email, as showing some interest directly to BBICN (who these exclusive figures are for) never hurts.

Shipping update from ThreeA blog
A lot of exciting stuff were mentioned on the blog today: BBICN exclusives , Harolds, Red Devil Lady Sham , you name it! And now it’s time for me to do my deed and announce another shipping update.

WWRp MK3 Berties, shipped out and should be already posed and standing on the displays in many homes. Here is the list of Berties, which were shipped to the customers:
*Bertie MK3 Sand Devil Mode A
*Bertie MK3 Sand Devil Mode B
*Daywatch Bertie MK3
*G.I.D Recon Bertie MK3A

Now on to Supreme NOM, as I mentioned earlier this month, we were planning to ship it towards the end of August. At the moment, I have an estimated about last days of August and will keep you updated.

Massive and super articulated Real Steel: Ambush starting to roll out. It’s a bit more complicated with Ambush shipping, as it’s a one big figure (42cm / 16.5″ tall). Shipping will be made in batches, this week we are ready to ship orders to US and HK clients and next week we will proceed with the next batch. Ideally we would love for all our clients order to be dispatched at the same time, but unfortunately logistics of shipping can be really sophisticated sometimes.

I hope you will get your Ambush soon and will be able to spoil us with many photos. Meanwhile, here is another photo of Real Steel: Ambush standing next to AK F-Legion by ULTRAMAN, showing how huge this robot is.

Latest post from Ashley's blog dedicated to the Great Sergio Toppi.
The Great Sergio Toppi has passed away. Mr Toppi was and is a great inspiration to me...
It is a sad day, a light has gone out.

Real Steel: Midas is approaching and will be up for pre-order at Bambalandstore in 10 hours from now. Pre-order starts: on August 24th, 9:00AM Hong Kong time for 290USD shipped.

Midas is 42cm tall and as articulated as his boxing opponent: Ambush. Speaking of him, you can checkout highly detailed review of Ambush by Toy People (lots of photos and 360 view). I'm confident that Midas will be even better looking (or I just love rusty golden color on my bots)!

Latest production photo of Midas:

F5 bar dedicated to Midas, will go live closer to the pre-order (3-4 hours prior to it, so around 5 / 6AM HK time).


F5 Bar dedicated to Midas is open and waiting for you. I don't think it will be that full, as most of F5 Bar talk is about surprises, but would be still great to see you there and talk about Midas.

Speaking about Midas, he is up at Bambalandstore and estimated shipping time is listed for 4th quarter of 2012. Midas will be offered via retailers later on, but Bambalandstore versions comes with an exclusive 1/6th scale bot controller.

Latest from Ashley's blog about upcoming show at Levine gallery (still time to book the tickets and hotel btw):

Creation, Birth and Rebirth

August - 2012  HeVfCt

Upcoming exhibition: Jonathan Levine Gallery NYC 20th October 2012

I always tell people that taking up a writing project is like having a child, I know it sounds cliche but starting a project and having a child have a lot of hallmarks in common. It's an exciting time, it's a worrying time, it's a "What the heck are we going to name this person?" time... And I'd be lying if there wasn't a little brain sex involved in creating a story, it's rewarding to write something you're into at that moment.

There is one way however, in which having a baby and writing a book is dissimilar and it's all to do with space... But don't worry, if you want to know what it's like not to be able to bend double, see your toes or sleep normally in your third trimester, all you have to do is to hook up with an artist... or go and visit one in the throes of finishing works for a solo exhibition.

The art studio, (and the artist who occupies it), is currently experiencing all the joys of the third trimester, there are expectations, short fuses, no room to move for shit and not just a few "Watch your toes please in case you kick or step on something!"

It's a very cool time to be around our house at the moment, the walls of the studio are lined with paintings newly varnished and hung up to dry and just walking into that place is to be hit in the face with a wall of scent that is both acrid, sweet and chemical.

Soon, very soon we shall be down to the packing stage, one fraught with it's own set of circumstances too. How to pack, when to crate, who is sending what and how will they send it? Reams and reams of Fragile tape, stickers, Hands off! This way up! And then finally... is it there yet?

All of this leading up to the doors of the gallery opening and... then it's your turn to come and see the baby.

Audrey and the Leg

August - 2012  Fym5OtAugust - 2012  JnZsHt

Here are two pictures for you all to enjoy. The first is because it made me laugh. I'm not always present when Ash names things and so I almost burst a blood vessel this morning when we received a package for his Audrey Shoe entitled: "Audrey Slipped With the Butterknife"

The second photo I'm putting up is of an item which may or may not appear at the Jonathan Levine exhibition in October. The item is a hand painted leg, and I have to say it's my favorite piece. I love the way that all of the women in Ash's paintings are so strong and liberated and this piece is just so beautiful to me, for that reason and so many others.

A bit of information about MGS REX since there was some circling confusion about REX colors, after Hideo KOJIMA posted these photos on twitter

August - 2012  SgAcBtAugust - 2012  I57kbtAugust - 2012  AQBuVtAugust - 2012  OM32wt

I decided to contact HK and ask about color. I got the confirmation that color wasn't changed and it's just quality and lighting on the photos taken by Hideo KOJIMA, which add specific tone to the color. There was some confusion between our boardies (who I think represent all the hardcore MGS series fans) about MGS REX head (cockpit) articulation, I got the confirmation that head moves up and down.

Here is a retrospective of REX photos starting with early prototype, shown at HKV in November, 2009. (photos by Monkey)

Real Steel: Midas by Dick.Po from Toysdaily, direct link to his review: , who according to the text got an invitation to ThreeA HQs and was allowed to make these photos of Midas production prototype. One thing though...batteries were already almost empty on the prototype, so his eyes ain't lighten up as strong, as they are built to.

Huge thank you to slash1 for the heads up

Audrey surely knew how to sharpen her knifes:

"Audrey prepared her toast like every other morning, she always had to 'pop' it out manually or the
edges would burn and smell like dead accordion players. As always, she pulled her butter k
from the draw, as King Arthur would Excalibur from the stone. Instead of triumphantly holding it
high, her right foot's heel slipped on the linoleum floor and she fell...

Audrey lay there, quite shocked, she could see her left foot laying there severed,
she mused what a pretty shoe, what a shitty butterknife!"

According to ThreeA blog, more Action Portable figures might be coming to the store soon:
"I think its time for some more AP ! ill get back to you guys soon !" written by Ashley Wood.

Is it me or "Lore" Premier and "ZvR" Premier exclusive convention editions are back to stock at IDW Publishing shop?
If so, that's great opportunity, if you missed them during SDCC. Here is the link to IDW store.

Very nice t-shirt on one certain TK (KDA cough cough)

August - 2012  Wblm6t

First variant of this Lasstranaut love t-shirt was shown earlier with the following text: Watch Bamba 30th September…

August - 2012  ZORoUt

It's interesting that Ashley mentioned Popbot Lasstranaut figure in the blog: I really should get that Lass figure released !

Of course it's a bit of speculation from my side, but currently all leads to upcoming reveal of Popbot Lasstranaut, which is in the works for many years now, starting from month theme on Ashley's blog , proceeding to Lasstranaut love t-shirts and now direct mention of Lasstranaut.

August - 2012  UUAPPt

This is clearly de Plume style boots and pants...but what's interesting is that they are rocking winter theme. So far only de Plume, which had winter camouflage was infamous and legendary WWR Blanc de Plume , which was available only as gifts / prizes in the contests. I wonder when we will hear more about this new mysterious figure...Blanc Disciple would be a cool name (I'm speculating again here).

Some Q&A about ThreeA and KOJIMA MGS REX. Questions were gathered at MGS REX thread on our forum and addressed to ThreeA engineers.

August - 2012  XaDQrt


These aren't direct quotes, I edited it a bit for better understanding.

1) Removable armor plates on REX and their quantity, and how they attached to REX.

Not less than 20 pieces.

We needed to base on the damage version of the drawing from Konami, so just the damaged area can be removable. we will attach a construction sheet to show the customer how to play with it.

Panels are connected with pinholes & tubes.

2) Whether upper lip can light up?

Upper lip of the front cockpit now can light up.

3) Lights on REX and what can light up?

Both side of it's eyes, cockpit inside & lazer cannon. It's hard to tell with 'how many', just only the lazer cannon, we used 35 LED to work for the effect.

4) Where are the switches and battery ports for the lights?

Lazer cannon (railgun) - battery case at the end of the cannon, right hand side. Button on the top with the on/off switch at the bottom of the lazer cannon.
Head lights and cockpit-battery case and on/off switch are both under it's chin.

5) Can REX stand on his own without any support?

Yes, that is one of the most challenging mechanism that we needed to solve. It can stand with his own even fully extended. Of course it needs some patience to find the balancing point.

6) How much / far does the mouth/cockpit open up? Also how tight is joint used for the mouth? Is it lockable? What kind of joints are used for the jaws of Rex?

As seen on display at Re-Venture. Mouth is operated: using clutch joint. The final product will be more firm than you saw in RVHK one. Not lockable.


Shipping update and plans for the next week:
We are ready to start shipping of WWR Supreme NOM release figures next week.

Same time for Ashley Wood collection: Audrey slips with butterknife release.

And we plan to start shipping Bambalandstore allotment of SDCC exclusives soon (most likely next week). The allotment was exclusively offered at Bambalandstore on July 12th 2012. Which includes: Valve x 3A SDCC 2012 Exclusive Weighted Companion Square ; Valve x 3A SDCC 2012 Exclusive 1:1 Sandvich; WWR Mighty Squaro.

I previously wrote that first batches of Real Steel: Ambush orders started to ship out and few Legionnaires already made pretty rad photos of this monstrous fighting robot. Currently, we are waiting for more robots to arrive from the Hatchery, in order to proceed with the following stages of International shipping. I will keep you informed about this.

Ashley Wood will be visiting ACG Cuangzhou-HK-Macao Comic Con (based on the flyer info bellow), where ThreeA and BBICN are participating. BBICN posted an update about this here.

Here is the flyer with additional information in Chinese:

Another look at BBICN exlusives: Popbot TK KDO, AK Hard Nipples War and Munich NTQ

August - 2012  1DWsJt August - 2012  BbWtMt August - 2012  JXjZ4t

I'm waiting for an official translation , which is coming soon. Meanwhile our boardie kaworu17 presented his quick translation here.

In absolutely majority of the cases, ThreeA always offered a variant of the show exclusives (or exact figure) at Bambalandstore. Currently only: Popbot TK KDA was revealed and it was stated that it's coming to Bambalandstore on September 30th. Of course everyone has his own likes and dislikes, but I think that KDA is much more interesting narrow shoulder types TK (take his new kicks alone) and more appealing than KDO (BBICN exclusive).
