There have been rumblings of an Iron Panda set for a while now, maybe that?
I'd love a big one-hit instant WWR squad but there's no way I can fork out the kind of cash it will command during the holiday season.
Are there any known cases of bootleg 3A stuff? I'm trawling Ebay at the moment; some vendors seem to have quite a bit of stock and good records, though the location: China sets off a red flag.
There's never been any bootleg 3A figures. That would be a really really stupid thing to bother trying to make a bootleg of, considering the amount of manual labor that goes into the sewing and the paint.
And 3A is located in Hong Kong. They have all kinds of sellers in HK and China, because that's where they're from and they're popular there.
Also, a lot of ThreeA parts actually get recast--TK heads, swords, shoes, machetes, knives, guns, etc. But I've never seen anyone try to pass them off as originals, all the recasters I know of specifically state what they are. So at the very least I don't think it's a widespread issue.
God I fucking hate threea. I really wanted this TK. I skipped kozo specifically because it was an exclusive and because ash said there would also be a bambaland general sale. Nope it was an even rarer premade sale with only a few hundred. Thanks threea.
How could one fucking guy be so inept. If this is how every sale is gonna go down im done. This model does nothing but serve scalpers and hes a retard to think otherwise. No two shits about loyal fans. Random ass times for a drop thats sold out in about 5 mins for each batch.
Instead of growing the hatchery and hiring more competent people and keeping up demand, or even doing made to order sales and cutting the orders off at like 2000 or so would be smarter. Nope insteadjust make a couple hundred and do some shitty premade sales.
This is going to turn away more loyal fans than long waits and poor QC ever did. Haha watch these premade shits have just as shitty joints and bodies.
Fuck threea. Fuck ash. I hope they go out of business
Yeah I'm really excited for the Bertie drop but I'm afraid that the coolest ones like Warbot and Ghost Hunter and EMGY will be random limited drop shit that disappears after 30 seconds.
If you wanted one so bad, you should have put more effort in to get one.
They really weren't crazy hard to get, I dedicated an hour of time to it and got one no problem.
Quit being salty because the rare doll is rare.
I'm sort of thinking Warbot might be exclusive to a big multi-pack, just like the original. If that's the case, we can expect to see a lot of people buying the pack and trying to offload the others.
I'm also sort of wondering where he's going to go with colorways. Will he stick to updates of the OG Bertie colorways, or go above and beyond? EMGY didn't even exist yet at the time of the original 7-pack.
Then you're a dickhead who fucked up on babbyy's first premade. I saw him up on three occasions during the day just dropping in on bamba every now and then and peeking in the F5 thread so, clearly you didn't even try but baaaaaaaw fucking Ash is so inept fucking scalpers fucking waaaaaah.
Actually I did check. I missed the first drop by 3 mins it was up exactly for 6.5 mins and I was on my way home from work. Then i got cart jacked on a recycle. I missed the 2nd drop because it came at fucking 1:45 am PST and i was asleep because I had to fucking go to work in the morning. Hey at least I wasnt glued to my screen F5ing and eating fucking hotpockets with filth covered fingers to score shosuke. Congrats. Thankfully I actually have a job and can afford to unfortunatly pay scalper price but that isn't right. All I know is if this is the way ALL 3a sales are going to be from now on it really sucks.
To have to be glued to the screen all day because they cant even announce a time sucks. It sucks that they didnt even drop it at the normal expected HK time. It sucks that it was only up and sold out in less than 11 mins for both batches. It all sucks and like I said if thats what it takes to buy 3A moving forward, I guess im out.
I like how 3A drones criticize people like you for having a life and actually wanting to get sleep to do optimal at your job. They think just because they're a bunch of sad pathetic sacks of shit who stay glued to a PC that they have a right to tell people to stop whining over shitty business practices.
I used to be one of them and got out of 3A because I tired of it. Even when I was one of them I never insulted people who actually had a life, I knew what I was doing was pathetic. It's "fun" at first but it grows tiring very quickly. Better things to do in life.
>Hey at least I wasnt glued to my screen F5ing and eating fucking hotpockets with filth covered fingers to score shosuke. Congrats. Thankfully I actually have a job and can afford to unfortunatly pay scalper price but that isn't right.
No offense bro, but it really just sounds like you didn't want it bad enough. I'm not saying people should have to crawl over spikes to get their toys or anything, but you're really blowing things out of proportion, aren't you? Your whole "F5ing eating hotpockets" spiel is hyperbolic to the extreme. I mean, it's pretty simple, you make sacrifices sometimes to get what you want. If that means losing a little bit of sleep, so be it. This isn't exclusive to toys. Ask anyone who's ever camped out for convention tickets or a new console. Sometimes you gotta work for it.
Basically, you seem to have this mindset that everything needs to be conveniently dropped right into your lap. Even now, you say you have the money but you don't want to spend it on principle. Again, your principle seems to be stronger than your desire for the toy. And maybe that's so, maybe your desire was never that high in the first place and you just wanted to come here to complain about it.
Agreed, I'm out unless this shit stops, they should be able to do pre orders and not be late. Ash is polarizing in the opposite direction and honestly considering what he has said in response to people being pissed it almost sounds like he is doing this shit out of spite.
Its like he is going "You wishing you could order shit more readily and wait a year for it again yet? Its either this hell or that hell, I'm not changing anything production capacity wise cause that's how I want it to stay! Regardless of what my customers think, you can all fuck off."
Seriously he hasn't fixed shit, all he has done is instead of making people wait a damn year he is seeking everything in super small pre made batches. Both of which are just different ways of delivering while not fixing the core issue, which is their production speeds.
And what's worse is I guarantee we haven't seen the last of quality control issues even though the most descent orders were made in small batches.
they just post random timelines and dates then take them down then announce a sale that gets changed once again. They announce a sale what is in a very small window of 1-2 hours and then go meh we will make it 48 hours.
seized like, confiscated? What reason would they have? Even that guy who was selling resin-cast grenade brains was able to have them arrive to customers. Someone got a hole drilled in theirs but it still arrived.
Check the catalogue, he's probably trolling, but it's still pretty fucked up as it may affect many toy collectors out in euro land forever. Give the thread a look over, people were bringing up some fucked up shit.
Anyway, most people didn't get him, but there was an apparent window for 3aa members only. for the underverse hacker kozo
Really hope the new ordering system won't be like this.
