Q: Will we see Isobelle as Race Queen girl, just like Miyu?
Q: Thailand exclusive Thiddy looks to be a very unique and interesting TK. Does the extra-long sleeve have some practical application for battle, or is it strictly a fashion statement? Any chance of seeing a similar TK show up on Bamba? Thanks!
A: You could desk that about any TK, Thiddy just wears the long arm variant of a classic TK shirt, for personal taste and it comes it hand as a scarf!
Q: Any chance for a Dutch Merc Dropcloth one day?
A: A 1.5 definitely!
Q: When we might see how Snowblind Ronin TK looks like?
Q: Can you please shed some light on next Ma.k/SF3D x threeA fig?
A: There is nothing to shed, or we would, we are not holding out info to be coy!
Q: Are the new Nablers going for sale this April?
A: Thats the plan, just waiting for revised samples! Should be a fun sale!
Q: Ash, if enough of us ask for a version of LIZ/Miyu portrayed in the Wonka sale ad , would it help to bring her into 1/6 life?
A: The vampire girl from the world of pascha ! I'm sure if you asked nicely!
Q: Could we get a hint as to the color of the new Zomb head sculpt (that is coming with Red Night JC)? I need to buy a body to put it on and would like it to match. Thank you!
A: Dunno yet, still trying some versions out !
Q: I just got my Dead Easy Corp set and they are so cool! On the box there is a logo that says "THREEPACK" with a larger "3P" over that. Will there be more "THREEPACK"s on the way? Will we get to see a WWR threepack with some Grunts or Martian Sloggers?
A: We have a few more 3P this year! Covering all worlds!
Q: Can you please share with us some news regarding 3A x Capcom 1/12 Vital Suits and 1/6 Mercenary?
A: Check the blog!
Q: Are all the Zombs in AK dopey brain eaters or are there a few different varieties? I'm not talking she zombs or fatties but something like an aggressive feeder Zombs or something?
A: Some are dopey, mainly the classic Boiler Zomb, but there are many variations of the state of Zombness! ZOMBMD has created a whole eco system of zomb to cover many situations!
Q: What is the story with Zombots? Will we see anymore on robot island or in Adventure Kartel Universe in general? Have they evolved? Are there different kinds?
A: A new zombot soon, because I like them, Robot island is a mainstay of the AK world, many more robots and tales from that musty island!
Q: What's so special about this Handsome Wu fellow!? Is he really handsome? Or is that a nickname cuz he's butt ugly? Is he a member/friend of the Adventure Kartel? Or a villain? Is he a monster hunter? His name sounds like he would be a monster hunter. Does he practice the martial arts or the mystic arts? Is he Asian? Could he be a Gangster Rapper? Thank you for your time!
A: Just wait and see, but he a merc, another left over from the OPENSPACE CONFLICT!
Q: Can you please tell us what "JBS" on the UKTK punk box stand for?
A: Oh that, mmm, maybe one day, it was going tone his original name, those are the initials etc. I still might use it !
Q: Will you install some extra equipment/weapon on some new EVOL Square? I mean like small turret on top or something, or backpack, or antenna radar, etc, would be cool if Square also have their equipment/weapon.
A: Well thats not their style, small weapons etc, they have never been an offensive weapon ( but they partial to a bomb strapped to their back for comedy tension), but the new one's design certainly makes it more deadly. Square4 is the largest upgrade since v1
Q: The idea of transparent apple and heels was cool, maybe one day we can see transparent Square as well?
A: Well the new one could due done in transparent!
Q: Besides Dropcloths and Squares, does Peaceday team have another bots?
A: Now they have them all as they have become a corp for hire!
Q: Does "WFP" stand for WF Patrol? Will their appearance change in EVOL now its revealed they work for Roth? Is it possible they help hide Roth when he flees the moon? WF YO!
A: WFP is Rothchild corp! All be revealed!
Q: Love the new painting on the Portable NOM Commander boxes. Any chance we'll see the walking tanks from WWR EVOL prelude cover in toy form? And what is the name of that bot?
A: Im gonna try!
Q: What are the next figures coming along that have electronics like Krote, Portal figures, etc.? Are any WWR EVOL figures this year (or ever) going to have electronic features like lights or a gattling that rotates would be cool?
A: Yup to EVOL
Q: I noticed with your illustrations, you use a lot of half tone dot patterns. And with the Dead Easy GID pack. I was able to see you use a clear transparent velum or transparent print material with the printed dots. Do you just scratch off the highlights on the transparency and tape the transparency over the original illustration? Also do you have any other tricks or tips that you can pass on to upcoming working artists?
A: Its not vellum and its stuck to the board directly like traditional mechanical screens! Love it, so sick of computerized shit, I like the organic nature! There are no tricks, just techniques, they are more fun when discovered on one own artistic journey.
Q: Have we seen the last of the original Dropcloths? Will they appear in any supersets in the future or have they all moved on to the 1.5 design? They are my favorite bot design to date, and I would love to see an original DC in GID at some point.
A: Supersets might see an original DC, still planning it!
Q: Do you have a date in mind for Thailand Toy Expo Mighty Squares Bambalandstore allotment? Will there be a notice?
A: I would check bamba at the time of the Thailand show, Im sure soon as its finalized we will announce. Re allotment very similar to the show!
Q: Just saw UKTQ teaser and she looks awesome! Can you please share some details about her and her relationship with UKTK? Are their fighting partners or they share something more in common?
A: They are part of a UK TK corp, who have taken to the Punk imagery and ethos. They act and perform more like a gang than a military unit, maybe lost in their own dreams of who they think they are, and not what they really are….
Q: Who will be the next figure, using 10" body? Maybe new Little Shadow?
A: Little shadow is it!
Q: Are we going to see AKLUB release this April?
A: Zomb MD is it, trying to get it done asap!
Q: So excited for TK MOOK emails, can't wait to get my hands on that book. Seriously, thank you for taking your time and jumping to 154 pages, really appreciate it! Do you have more plans to release compilation books like that or can you share what's your favorite page/section in TK MOOK?
A: It turned into a much larger book than thought , well MOOK, but there is so much material and we thought lets make it big. We have an idea of a 3A book that reveals much of the back ground design work and sculptures and interesting tales, but I figure the longer I leave the better! I feel very lucky to have the opportunities to do stuff like the Mook, privileged to have the audience !
Q: Will see more of mysterious VALVe Ghost figure (statue?), which was teased on the blog a while ago?
A: Im looking at it now, just kinda missed the Halloween deadline, it lights too!
Q: What doors Wonka Square will unlock?!
A: A box with a dried gnarly Ompa lumpa heart inside, fuck those spawns of satan, BUT really, a cool figure that only Wonka Square buyers can get!
Q: Do you have any time to watch tv shows and if so, what do you watch? Maybe you are watching some shows with your kids?
A: I don't watch much, still a documentary kinda guy!
