Who designs the toys at 3A?
Yes, thought the Showcase lines may vary depending on the toy.
Here is what Ash has to say about it:
anbis, I do all the designs, all the tech drawings, I dont have a toy company to let others draw my ideas. Its easy, I have designed shit for nealry 20 years, from film to video games and back, the paintings are just that the paintings , not toy designs.
man I need an FAQ, coz I swear I keep answering his.. EVERYTHING, from head to gun, to robot are designed, drawn by me, then tweaked as they go, yes it sounds ego to say, but I do it, Im proud of it, and nothing wrong with pointing it out.

Yes it's okay. It's a substance from keeping the figure in a storage, for a long time. Nothing can be done about it. Just wipe it off with a soft paper. I did exactly the same thing with mine.

It's a forum exclusive, must have figure done by 3A. There was a petition done to make that figure, and 75 members were added to the list, who will buy this figure. Now 3A is making it. It's going to be a set of two figures with Ash and Kims faces. But wait for the updates.
It's known that - estimated April for shipping and 3A should have something to show in February. But everything else about that would be complete speculation on the subject.
What is AVA body version 1?
It's a completely new female body for 3A figures. Fully manufactured by 3A. AVA comes with sculpted hair.
How AVA body would look like?
Just not to speculate, here is direct quote from Ashley Wood:
"We have many ideas and prototypes on the go..
the balance is movement versus look, some people would prefer ultra pose-able bodies, some want minimum movement but ultra nice lines...
Thats where we are at, I dont really care if my figures and can contort to any pose, long as they can move and hold a cool look. Of course in clothing, stockings , latex our body as of now shits over the norm, but i want it to look awesome in just underwear. Maybe its not practical but i want to try."
Where can I get Aki, the exclusive TK variant?
This has not yet been announced.
What can you say about Large Martin figure?
It's going to be larger then Brabmle. Two variants, released together at the same time. Not super expensive, but price would be updated. No blind box, you can chose whatever variant you will like. They will be radially different in colorway, one will be hardcore war vet style, one will be more graphic, a military parade version if you will.
Where to see or join, all the members list of 3A board?

What kind of exclusives will the 3AA members have access for?
3AA exclusives will be either a original toy just for 3AA, or a colorway, or design of a current release of some sort.
I have questions about Popbot universe!
Well, we have some questions too. It's really existing and twisting story. One of board members have made the guide to Popbot universe. You have to check it out here! Maybe some of your questions would be answered.
Popular question, that's why I'm repeating it.
Is there really going to be 15% discount for 3AA, for one year at bambalandstore.com? What else is going to be there?

- - A 3AA T-shirt.
- - 15% discount for 12 months.
- - Access to all the special Variants.
- - A personalized 3AA membership card, with your name/surname/nickname
On the back of the Bloody Dirty Deeds Bertie's head, it has this red printing that is hard to decipher. What it says?
It says: bloody edition
I'm seeing a lot of Ashley Wood paintings in Scott Eders gallery on ebay. Are they real?
Yes, Scott is the man, who you go to on ebay, for Ashley Woods works. They absolutely real and Scott is an ideal gallery owner to deal with.

"Its just Bertie, the pipebomb ref is from some work but I dont like it now, trite. just Bertie MK1, MK2 and so on".(C) Ashley Wood
Who got all the limited editions of Nom&Noir and Berties? Who I ask you?!!
I feel your pain. I haven't got any of them. But some of lucky owners are here on this board.
UPDATE.SAME QUESTION ASKED TWICE! Please read the FAQ.
What up with WWRS articulation? Nothing at all, even no shoulder joint articulation?
WWRS is a small model series that will have no articulation
( regardless of scale of bot ), each will be posed accordingly. There will be no articulation, only WWRP and WWR have articulation.
Bambalad or Bambaboss?
I'm a bit confused. Don't have definite answer for now. Let's stick with that, and then I'll make an update.
its always been bambaboss, (I was just vague and wispy with the facts), when you see the rest you will know why ? there is a difference between them, one is lad, one is boss for starters."

I know that it's a long shot, but I want to know, how can I prolong my 3AA membership in 2010?
Here is Ashley Wood's quote:
existing members can renew without worry, the membership might work this way, say if 150 join up, thats the limit, so if in a year 20 people drop out, there would be 20 available. it will be non transferable also. .
Of course everything can change, let's not rush up everyone and wait for November at least.
So, if there are no zombies in WWR universe, does that mean Nom de Plume also doesn't encounter zombies?
Yes, Nom de Plume doesn't meet any zombies at all.
What scale figure is Bambaboss?Is it articulated?
Bambaboss is in it's own scale (8 inches) and not articulated.
Is it true that I can't post pic's from Ashley Wood books on this board?

What is 3A-lines showcase?
Showcase is where 3A put, not 3A owned properties and characters etc. Other artists and companies that 3A are making toys with. First announcement coming soon.
I would like to know more, about Bramble Euro Defense!Does he have a gat gun?
For now it's a mystery. But I can show you some insiders info, from Ashley Wood himself.
Euro is really cool he has no gat gun ( offensive weapon ) as he is a peace keeper within europe. each town and hamlet etc has a euro defence bramble or two to keep the peace ( from drunks to looters ) and if need be fight the mars born enemy. euro is waaay shitty and rusty, he isnt part of a well oiled war machine, more a civilian outfit, no cares for them, or takes time to clean the bots, they get serviced but thats it. each town decorates them as they see fit etc.
