oh yea, with this sale these zomb heads are retired."

It's rather unbelievable but AK Johan surprise was noticed at the store

Surprise means that it's going up at the store , at random time. It's unknown how many waves are left.

Price: 130USD (price on the screenshot is for 3AA members).

December - 2012  BBHaxt

Update:
last batch of Johan went up, saying that it's "final lot", so all gone now

Since everything is gone from the store, it's time to pull the plug on F5 bar...what a crazy ride it was! I hope that everything goes as planned this month and we will see AK Finger Gang set for sale and WWR Harold.

See ya soon guys!

Thank to all of you for being in the bar, for all your support and thank you for proving once again that , no matter how far EMO goes, Legion spirit is strong!

Ashley about Sandvich and VALVe store
Valve have informed that if you like a good Sandvich to swing by their store tomorrow.

I don't know whether Ashley is referring to this Sandvich we already made (shown bellow) or something else.

http://store.valvesoftware.com/ - I think Ashley is referring to this one, sadly I can't comment more about it (please feel free to use your logic and knowledge about VALVe)

I haven't written anything about shipping since end of November, as we are working hard on finishing manufacture of several releases and preparing them for shipping procedures. I'll do an update right before shipping starts (during last week of December).

It has been mentioned that Harold might be offered this month, but it's pushed to January, because of upcoming Christmas Holidays and we always try to space our releases as much , as possible (based on actual customer preferences as well).

Ashley Wood is currently working on Holiday VOX newsletter and if you haven't signed up to VOX newsletter, you can do it here.

As usual, if you have any questions whatsoever about your ThreeA orders (or special instructions/wishes in mind), you are more than welcome to contact our customer service professionals at cs@threeaonline.com. And please never hesitate to contact this forum moderators, as we would be delighted to help you! If you prefer social networks, you can reach out for advice and direction to 3Asupport on twitter or engage with our official 3AVOX Facebook page.

The first World class Toy Exhibition in Thailand starts on January 10th 2013 at Central World in Bangkok. We are proud to be participating there, presenting some new stuff and exclusives. Here is the special thread for the event and Jeep (organizer of the entire exhibition) is on that thread as well.

All the info Jeep could share with us at the moment:
1. There will be an exclusive.
2. Poster will be given to the attendees.
3. There will be new and unseen stuff shown.
Jp toys (event organizer) activity for the show (only for visitors of the event, will not ship overseas): for Thai legion but other Legionnaires welcome to participate as well.
1. Choose which ThreeA character that you like the most. Write your feeling towards character that you chose and why you love ThreeA.
2. Send all of the information (picture,description) to info@jp-toys.com by January 4, 2013.
3. In order to gain points from special referee, all of the participants can make a diorama (using ThreeA figs) or make a customised figure (must be ThreeA item).
4. There will be a special referee from ThreeA.
5. The first 3 participants who get the highest score will win a special present from ThreeA.
6. Have fun with this activity Legionnaires.

If you have any questions please send them to info@jp-toys.com

And finally, I'm working my vamp magic on Jeep to make some sort of the contest for Legion (for members who can't go)...can't say anything more at the moment, other than I am excited about it and holding my fingers crossed.

Another extremely interesting thing: I strongly recommend to check ThreeA legions AK Zomb anthology book for charity thread, organized by Dienstag with support from Ashley Wood.

Popbot Shogun TK images and story from ThreeA blog:

They say...There were only ten that ever walked with us, that each could hold an army at bay single handed. They say we will never see their kind again and each of the ten shelter silent wisdom cast from a memory of the end. These are the SHOGUN TK.

December - 2012  RPAZam December - 2012  XjORxm December - 2012  FwYbnm

In case images (posted above) will not be showing, yo can see them here on the blog.

I noticed that part about "there were only ten" was taken by many in a way, that there will be 10 Shogun TKs for sale. But in my understanding, it's only a part of the narrative about the character. All I can add to it, that there are no bot heads for Shogun. Price haven't been disclosed yet and as mentioned on the images, Shogun TKs and 7Bones Shogun TK will be available on December 20th at Bambalandstore.

Here is an extract from previous 7Bones character Queeny poster, teasing all 7Bones members, including previous 7Bones releases: Wasabi, Kyoku un Queeny.

Ashley giving heads-up about VOX newsletter:
xmas newsletter
Just an update as many have asked, the newsletter goes out monday my time. Hope everyone has a great weekend!


If you haven't signed up to VOX newsletter, you can do it here

I was thinking that there is a whole new army of people, who just discovered ThreeA and don't know much about legendary VOX newsletter, so here is a brief story from good old vamp. At the moment there are 26 VOX newsletters (plus 4 VOX specials - dedicated to product releases and Re-Venture), there were a good amount of mass ThreeA newsletters about certain releases through the years, but VOX was something completely new and fresh. It set a certain standard, showing upcoming figures teasers, announcing winners of photo contests and it contained a word from Ashley Wood. First VOX went out in August 2011 (VOX 1) and it was regular till March 17th (VOX 2.7), then there was a gap (because Ashley Wood was extremely busy with other projects) and ThreeA blog was getting flow of regular updates and such. Last issues of VOX seen the light of day on September 27th and can be seen here.

I must say that I'm looking very much forward to the new VOX, because I want to read 3AA 2013 info (fifth year of 3AA!!), see teasers of new stuff (perhaps something new about ThreeA in Thailand show?) and of course to find out, who won 10 Pudding Bosses. When I was talking with Ash last time, he said that he was overwhelmed with amount and quality of Pudding Boss contest entries.

As I understand toy-people were doing some sort of contest, showing collectors literally swimming in their collections...here are two photos , which caught my eye.

December - 2012  GDgxFtDecember - 2012  CPYPpt

It's a forth day of threeA legions AK Zomb anthology book for charity initiative and there are only 52 themes for sketches left (out of 100).

VOX 2012 Christmas newsletter out and it's the best one yet!

December - 2012  H8omVm

I'm working on the summary for my column and blog, but meanwhile you can read full version here.

Time for my usual coverage of VOX newsletter and it's never boring, especially with Christmas VOX!

Usual reminder about our customer service (adding info about holidays) and 3A support on twitter:
3A Customer support, please remember, if you have any concerns or inquiries about your order from Bambaland, please do not hesitate to contact 3A customer support at cs@threeaonline.com or join @3ASupport on twitter. But please remember over the Christmas + new years period our support team will be taking a well earned rest so please be patient, they will get back to you as soon as possible.

With addition of 3A page on Facebook

Ashley sharing his excitement and thoughts about ThreeA:

For the past 5 years I have been thinking and designing toys to made by 3A everyday, and this time every year I think about 3AA and the coming year, I think- do I want to do more, design more, have 3A in my life for another year, and it's always an easy answer... FUCK YEA, 3A grants me an outlet to tell stories and create worlds that go beyond the page or movie or whatever, every toy i design has a story behind it, sometimes it enough for me to know and let you guys create it's extended myth outside of my studio, but nothing is made just for the sake of it. I could not stand the idea of another 12 months of making "product", just to sell, it's a pointless waste of time and very boring. What I see 3A doing is creating worlds ( hence the new logo thingy ), I want to make playgrounds that we all have a chance to play in, my toys are not designed to be carefully sealed and flipped by pilot fish on ebay at the expense of others, they are meant to be played with, looked at while imagining the worlds they live in and having fun most of all. When I saw all the great entries for the pudding boss contest and our 3A Photography book SHOT, I know many of you are enjoying them, and thats the stuff that makes us carry on, to be a counter to the boring, safe, trite shit that fill our life's and toy shelf's!


Fifth year of ThreeA Associates membership (3AA) is just epic this year! We started with first ever 1/12th scale Bramble in 2009, followed with WWRp Nom de Plume , AP Oyabun and introducing 1/6th scale AK F-Legion figure this year. For 2013 we will have WWR Blanc Hunter (1/6th scale BABY!) ; t-shirt with killer container ; 3AA card; accompanied with awesome packaging (designed by Brent Ashe) and other cool stuff. There is extra goodies for fifth year 3AA members:
So speaking of 3AA, the 2013 version onsale 15th Jan 2013 9-00am at Bambaland is the best yet, with beautifully designed packaging by Brent Ashe, the 2013 includes the BLANC HUNTER NOM 1/6th figure, 3AA NOM T-shirt with bullet container, signed Blanc Hunter print and the open all doors membership card! I think for our 5th set anniversary also should reward the 3AA member's who have had our backs since the first recruiting drive... So as our way to say thanks, not only do 5X members ( as in members who have been a 3AA every year till now and get the 2013 membership ) get the 3AA set, but they also get a second T-Shirt and the much loved, nay lusted after NOM Prey-Box. It goes without saying that said Prey-Box will not be offered again!

What I always loved about VOX , is how it teases upcoming figures and talks about future. Here is what Ashley Wood said about 2013:

“What else, mmm, oh yea, the 3A charity auctions will begin in JAN, get a cool fig scribbled on by by and help some people out as well ! Watch the 3A website for more info in the coming weeks. I guess in closing all I can say is that we are all excited here at 3A for 2013, which we believe will be remembered as one of our best years, from WWR, AK, POPBOT to new Worlds like TOTEM, 3AGO and BORN OF STONE, mixed with handpicked classic IP like The World OF Valve, Microman, Halo, Soloman Kane, Lost Planet, Ma.k, MGS and few we cant mention yet! Add in our publishing and I don’t think I would want to be anywhere else!”

Don’t know about you guys, but I’m particularly excited about completely new TOTEM , 3AGO, Born of stone and all the mentioned intellectual properties: old & new!

Ashley thanking staff, Legion and partners:

“I would also like to thank our great partners in distribution Good Smile (Japan), BBICN (China) , Beast Kingdom (Taiwan), Pongsthon Tumwattana (Thailand)!!!
LEGION – we never take for granted your support, and in return we will give you our best!
Before I go, I want to thank Kim for always saying yes and helping make all this possible! , Benny, Siu, Candy, Ivy, Ching, Kelvin, Tommy, Darius, Gimby, Brent and the HATCHERY for all the hard work you guys put in way beyond duty!”


Images of upcoming figures, including WWR Harold - “on sale Jan 2013 after the 3AA sale, because we want to see your smiles, every 1/6th Harold from Bambaland will come with a 1/12th version packed in, at no extra cost“

What always amazed me the most about ThreeA forum and Legion – how many talented people we have and how there is nothing impossible for them. Whatever contest theme and complexity would be , whether it’s animation, photo, sketch or something else – there will always be crazy amount of awesome entries , giving us all hard time to judge and pick the winner.

With Pudding Boss contest it was originally planned to give ten as prizes, but Ashley Wood decided to give away much more and he has something special in mind for participants:

December - 2012  0ozoPt

“After so many cool epic entrants, it was very hard to pick, but out esteemed judges have made their decision, every entry shown here will receive a XMAS 2012 Pudding boss, Benny will be in contact with you soon! But as I like all the entries so much im going to make a special signed print for everyone that entered, but we will worry about that later, as I still have to paint the image! Again, congratulations to all that entered, you helped 3A celebrate 2012!!!
And you know what, I liked many others too, so instead of going the pudding to employees and friends of 3A on mass, im gonna send more out to entrants!”

At the moment, I can say that within January we plan to ship out MGS REX Bambalandstore exclusive edition (comes in slightly different packaging; poster and miniature pilot) and remaining batches of MGS REX to retailers. We deeply apologize for the extra wait , for this giant (box size: 55.5x47x53.5 cm and more than 8kgs in total weight). It’s the most complicated & detailed figure we ever produced and we wanted to make it great and gave it as much love, care and attention, as possible. Thank you so much for your patience and I hope that you will love your REX!

As usual, if you have any questions whatsoever about your ThreeA orders (or special instructions/wishes in mind), you are more than welcome to contact our customer service professionals at cs@threeaonline.com . Over the Christmas and January 1st our CS team will be taking a well earned rest so if your inquiries will be send during the Holidays, they will get back to you as soon as possible. Please never hesitate to contact us, we would be delighted to help you! Of course you can reach out for advice and direction to 3Asupport on twitter or engage with our official 3AVOX Facebook page.

Popbot Shogun TK sale starts in 20 minutes from now. One thing though, if you are 3AA members, you have 24 hours buying window on 3AA 2pack and standard Shogun TKs and there is absolutely no need to be there at 9:00AM HK time sharp.
I know that some people are very irritated by Bambalandstore slowness during start of the sale, usually it happens because massive peak load on the store, which slows Bambalandstore down is around 9:00AM - 9:20AM HK time, then it's quick & easy, so if you have that extra time on your hands, I would really recommend to wait just a tiny bit.
Again...Shogun TK pre-order starts on December 20th, 9:00AM HK time, it corresponds to: Wednesday (19th) 8:00 PM New York time ; Thursday 1:00 AM GMT; Thursday 10:00 AM Tokyo time.

Sweet surprise, Ash found some time and popped up at the bar to share some info and now I'm in trouble (in a good way of course):
howdy chaps, wanted to say thanks for another year of great support and general legionism !
Great to see the art and conversation here!
Stay safe over the holidays, im going to be setting up another art bunker/studio as the war on lame shit continues.
One bit of news which some of you might dig is that we are partnering with IDW to make a 3A imprint for comics. Im going to be dedicating large part of 2013 to make the best comics I can with others that stay true to me and 3A.
best shogun art picked by gimby gets a roughed up weathered Rothchild as a prize !
back to pulling desks apart!

Update 9:30HK time:
Shogun TKs are up at Bambalandstore, even though it was experiencing technical difficulties during first hour of the sale, it's more stable now.
To remind you, 3AA members have 24 hours buying window for Gorei, Tsuki, Shibo and 2pack (which isn't 3AA only anymore, just poster and better price advantage).

Update 12:32HK time:
Since Bambalandstore is still inaccessible from some regions , we put Shogun TKs at www.gallerythreea.com as well, so you can try now which site works the best for you. 3AA discount for 3AA members, is calculated during final steps of checkout.
If you by accident made more than one payment (and your paypal got charged twice for the same order) please write an email to cs@threeaonline.com and we will take care of it ASAP. Give it some though, as our CS is very busy at the moment.
We are truly sorry for all the trouble, but nothing can withstand desire for Shogun TK!
I'm told, that there will be no surprises at G3A, if you want to hunt for something, then Bambalandstore is the way.

Update 13:25HK time
DIY SHOGUN LTD UPDATE
THERE WAS AN ERROR IN DESCRIPTION, ONLY ONE WAS OFFERED FOR 140USD, NOT TWO
IF YOU BOUGHT THEM AND WANT TO HAVE A REFUND, PLEASE CONTACT CS@THREEAONLINE.COM
Sorry for the trouble


Update 13:42HK time
Because of the mistake at Bambalandstore description, DIY Shogun is available at G3A as well. www.gallerythreea.com - 3A toys section, don't know how long he will be up there.

Ashley Wood thanking Legion for Popbot Shogun TK support:
You guys are great
Thanks for making the SHOGUN TK sale a great success, even if bamba to a slap ! CHEERS !


and posting DIY Shogun TK and Shogun Shadow and Light LTD set art for those who asked

December - 2012  IMUV9tDecember - 2012  Vuhe8t

- Shipping is included at no extra charge
- Order is not complete until we receive notice of payment from Paypal

My dear friends, you keep asking me about surprises (DIY and Shadow and Light 2pack), as much, as I would love to help you and give you any update, but I just don't know. Surprises always been Ashley Wood's territory and only he solely knows whether there will be more or not ; and when they are coming up.

I made the promise to myself, unless I'm asked by Ash to share surprise info - I'm not commenting about them, as things can change in a blink of an eye, and there will be only more misunderstanding and drama. I truly hope that everyone will score what he/she wants and be happy about it. Currently all standard Shogun TK singles are up at Bambalandstore and G3A, and 2pack is for everyone, giving all a good chance to score these awesome Tomorrow Kings at best possible prices we can provide.
I haven't slept for a good while now (comes with being vampire and job description), so unless something else comes up, I'll do my news column update at ThreeA forum and hit the bed. Keep smiling, submitting your sketches to F5 Bar for fun and best sketch wins you dirty WWR Rothchild New Dawn Fades edition (shown bellow) and don't forget that world doesn't end tomorrow!

And Rothchild goes to...

Each good story always starts with the tradition and this one isn’t an exception.

During all Bambalandstore sale, we have a fun thread at ThreeA forum, which goes live 24 hours prior to the sale and stays alive until product is up at the store. It’s the best place to share the excitement, ask questions and have some good old fun. One of the rituals of that thread is that we allow & encourage fan art from our boardies, only rule is that it has to be inspired and dedicated to the product on sale, usually there aren’t any prizes and people do it just for fun.

Yesterday, Ashley said that there will be New Dawn Fades Rothchild (never offered for sale) prize to the best sketch author. Sound great right?! And it becomes only better: at the end three winners were picked!

So prepare to meet them: Mr.Roboto , giantdwarf and BRiZL. Congratulations guys, well deserved!

Holidays at ThreeA office:

Over the Christmas (25-26) and January 1st our Custer Service team ( cs@threeaonline.com ) will be taking well earned rest so if your inquiries will be send around that time, they will get back to you as soon as possible.

I want to wish you Merry Christmas and I hope you will spend great time with your family and friends!

As mentioned previously, we have a set date for 3AA 2013 sale and it's January 15th 9:00AM HK time. Details will be announced soon, but if you aren't 3AA member and looking forward to become one, you don't have to worry much as last years it's been pretty easy. For example this year membership package was available for 24 hours window at Bambalandstore, you just had to go there, do usual checkout procedure (by adding 3AA 2012 to your cart), add some details (like what name you wanted to have on the card) and that's it. If you inclined to read more about soon to expire: 3AA 2012 membership, you can read about it in January 2012 VOX newsletter, meanwhile I expect more details about 3AA 2013 and such after the New Year.

Time to show some more cool stuff from ThreeA and BBICN booth at ACG and let's start with our boardie kaworu17, sharing his experience:
"just came back from the con. the display there is great! i like the diorama.
some info about the things offered there:
as mentioned in the blog, u can get ak 3 pack, kdo and ntq there. but there is actually more!
for some purchases, u get 2 1/6 tee and a 1/6 bag.
they have a new book called weare which is similar to entr3at but featuring some to be released stuff too.
and also there is a chance to win a DIY bertie container."

That new book is something, which is particularly exciting for me, as I was HUGE fan of nearly 300 pages big ENTREAT catalog, which came out at 2010. If anyone has photos of "weare" in hand, please send it my way, would love to put them up.

Here are photos of AK Mumbs prototypes, photographed by Danny Pak

And finally: It's December 31st in my part of the world and I want to take a moment and say few words about 365 days of what was supposed to be - the last year for mankind (according to Mayans).

By all means 2012 wasn't an easy year, economy is still in the recession in many part of the world; people are struggling to make a living; lots of horrible things, tragedies & tough shit happened. Hopefully next year will be a lot easier and I certainly wish to everyone: lots of health, happiness and LOVE. Unfortunately we are just human beings (as much as that), we aren't all mighty, but words can kill and words can cure and breathe-in life...call your loved ones and just say how much you love them , you think that it's nothing and they know it anyway, but sometimes worlds like that can change the world.

2013 is going to be fifth year of ThreeA existence and our FIVE years Anniversary and according to my feelings and inner excitement, it's going to be the best one yet!

Happy New Year!
