3A. 2008 - 2019. Thank You for Everything

F5 - 3A 2008 - 2019. Thank You for Everything Eeffbc90-3ac7-4dd0-9f79-a444a57c6726

The era of 3A is coming to a close. Kim and I are forging ahead in different directions. I wish Kim nothing but the best on the journey he is taking Threezero in and I’m grateful to have spent so many years in the trenches with the man. I’m proud of what 3A has produced and accomplished these 11 years. It’s been a sincere honor and privilege to work with all of the 3A crew, past and present. My journey, my art, and my worlds, however, are heading towards new frontiers with head held high and brush in hand.

And to the fans –  Thank you. 3A could not have been what it was without you.

Rest assured – this is not the end, it’s another beginning. The band remains the same, only the label is changing.

See you in the Underverse.

– Ash

We had a good run 3A and I. Lots of highs and quite a few low Lows but in all was very happy to be part of the Legion. To all 3A members who have come and gone a big thanks to you all for being a ruckus bunch of malcontents i've been proud to associated with.

So what's going to happen in regards to the forum now that 3A has come to an end? A new 7174 UnderVerse forum??

Be nice if it was more active here, but this forum is often so dead... I dont do the social media, so this is pretty much my only means of finding out what new things were coming out from 3a. If it goes away, it goes away.

I agree, If it is gone it's not the end of the world. The older forum was much more active with the members once that transition happened to this forum I feel a lot of people dropped off/out and chose to go onto a different method of following or posting their pictures or information about what is shared about the company. Nothing against this forum at all I still enjoy time to time to check in on the threads to see if anything new has been posted that I haven't seen on the other social media sites.

I miss the really old forum before this one, that was deleted. It had so many photos submitted by fans, artwork, contest videos, F5 bar countdown nights etc. Its sad that we can not go back and read some of the really old posts. It would be sad if this forum was lost too the ether too. There will always be ThreeA fans so it would be nice to keep this one open.
Maybe add a legacy area for the old 3A veterans on the new forum and archive this one.

I guess this has been gradually winding down for a while now. Ash leaving the forums was the beginning of the end for me anyway. When he was on the forums I felt we were part of the machine, we had a voice, an input and were listened to, not just fans but actual associates.
Then he left, the old forums shut, the new forum was less active and felt more like an unofficial fan chat, still good for occasional info.
Then less releases, prices going up.
The loss of ThreeAA membership was definitely a clue. I had a great few years here though, I think maybe 9yers 3aa and I still check in here everyday but how long that will continue I don't know.
I'm gonna really miss ThreeA, even when I wasn't buying it was still a good place. Anyone remember the bar brawls at the F5 bar & grill???😂😂😂

Aka & Snowfear 😟
I’m pretty new here & only been collecting ThreeA for just over two years, I definitely caught the bug though acquiring over 120 pieces in that time... many from this very forum.

Like a few others I don’t use any social media, apart from Instagram where my activity is very limited. So I’d like to see the forum continue in some way or another.

Appreciate the concern. And many thanks to those that have reached out and asked. I'll be ok for a bit

I hope the forums stick around. In some ways forums seem out of fashion with all the social media apps like Instagram and such, but I've yet to find the sort of conversations and connections in those apps as compared to forums. I also like the history of the conversations. I wish the old forums were still around.

Anyways, I am sad, but not surprised, to hear that 3A is done. I do hope we continue to see other stuff from Ash. The new statue coming up is neat. I hope for 1/6 or 1/3 scale figures too.

It's good to hear the lines like AK will continue, but it won't have the same look and feel without ThreeZero you think?

Those chunky designs and wethered look were always from Three Zeroes approch am I wrong?

Chunky design has always been Ashley's trademark. Look at his books and artwork.
Same with the shit loads of pouches, a thing he seems to share with comic darling Rob Liefeld.
Weathering was an essential part of the WWR, AK and Popbot releases. Designed by Ash, refined back in the day by paint master Lok (now Hot Toys) and produced by the Hatchery.

Master Lok was such a huge loss, the work he did with ThreeA was perfection and a huge selling point.

Been a great run! If i was wearing a hat I would take it off for you guys, thank you for contributing to the madness and helping me build the collection I love so much!
