It's been a while since we've posted any ThreeA Toys updates, but that doesn't mean the news has stopped. No; in fact, it's piled up like boxes in our closets, so now seems as good a time as any to go over some of the latest news and notes from ThreeA land. After all, there's a big release coming up here shortly and some cool new teasers to check out.
First, there's the header image to talk about: new Fighting JCs! These are from the Action Portable line so they're 1/12-scale in size and come in four variants: regular, Mauro, Palm in the Face Sunday and Exegesis. Each AP Fighting JC comes with a severed Zomb head and the Palm in the Face Sunday JC comes with a severed Zomb head and towel of Turin. Buying all four of them also nets you AK Shadow Tommy Mission. I'd expect they'll run at the same US$45 plus US$15 shipping price as a previous, surprise Action Portable Fighting JC was released at.
You can pick them up from the Bambaland Store starting at 9 a.m. Hong Kong Time Thursday (9 p.m. Eastern Wednesday), so don't be late! It's happening soon.
How about a new Bambaboss? ThreeA has been teasing them, both with the above photo and another showing a glow-in-the-dark variant. Ashley Wood's message of "September is the month of the Bambaboss" makes me thing we'll see more news and maybe a release coming soon. Looking sharp!
If you're joining us and ThreeA at New York Comic Con, the convention exclusive is the 1/1-scale EMGY Squaro, similar in size to the 1/1-scale Squaro from San Diego Comic Con. It's deceptively small in these photos, trust me. More info on the Squaro and other exclusives should be coming soon.
In terms of recent releases, there's the Real Steel Midas 1/6-scale figure! Retailing for US$290, this bot came with a controller if you got i off Bambaland (just like Ambush), but if not, there's plenty of places to pick it up. Good Smile's distributing this bad-boy in Japan, so in addition to the usual North American retailers, we also have Japanese shops on the list ... though really, given the dollar/yen exchange rate and shipping, you're better off getting him locally, where ever you're reading this from.

ThreeA and Chinese retailer BBICN participating in the 6th ACG Guangzhou-HK-Macao Comic Con coming up Sept. 30 to Oct. 4, and guess what? They're going to have exclusives at the event, which should also be available online afterward. Those will include two figures featured above — Popbot TK KDO and Munich NTQ — along with a AK Hard Nipple War Threepack featuring Cold Dick, Flakey Frost and Snow Paw. Hey, I'm not the one who names these.
Our old friend Harold has made an appearance in ThreeA land as well, with news that these will be on their way soon. There's the TBRK 7th (left) and BcELL Logistics (right) Harolds on display ... and a third one lurking in the background. I smell a 3AA or some other exclusive Harold.
Also teased were Popbot TK KDA and Adventure Kartel Mumb, which by name alone makes me think it's based off the Zomb figures we've seen in the AK line before. The Popbot's shirt is also a teaser to perhaps another figure (Popbot Lasstranaut). Still, it looks pretty cool, but not as much as the last thing on our list:
I admit I was livid after the Cherry Bomb exclusivity switch that ThreeA did last month, but they apparently know how to win me back, because this is Tomorrow King Shogun and it is ... wow. Just wow. There's all kinds of samurai stylings on this piece, mixed with that bit of futuristic look that ThreeA is so well known for, and that's enough for me to want one badly. No word on a release date, but please, ThreeA: don't make this a 3AA exclusive or there might be some problems. *cracks knuckles*Photo Gallery: (22 images)
