Thank to all for sending the questions and for your continuous interest!
Q: Really excited about a ZvR headered 1/6 Warbot! Can you tell us about what accessories it'll come with?
A: Guns and starfish for now, Warbot travels light!
Q: Will the 3A Parade line continue? And what might be the next release?
A: Yes, Me and friends… er I mean SIU, we are on it! (Hi Greg ) Next release is the SEA FIGHT SET with ol' Apple Hair and co, Faust and Garland are set to enter the EURODEATH SONG CONTEST! PARADE WAS A HIGHLIGHT OF 2014, me and Siu have many plans for more Parade!
Q: Will you ever release the Mr. 71 figure in another scale? 1/12 or 3ago perhaps? Maybe a little corona bottle accessory yo!
A: Mm I think we have had about enough of that Kunt-sler… BUT a 1/12th in a bottle would be cool...
Q: Curious what is happening on Kuntsler meetings? Are you working on some sort of short movie or animation by any chance?
A: Bunch of Kunts-slers talking about death, destruction, night eating day and sour dough. Pretty standard stuff.
Q: We recently found out that TKs are cloned on a home planet, called Jomon. Are TQ's also made there, or do they have their own home world?
A: TQ’s are from another world!
Q: Will we get more info concerning the NOM please? I was curious as to the meaning of the 9 dot symbol, 3 dot symbol, and triquetra as seen in the membership pack this year. Any reason why you chose those symbols to represent NOM?
A: The dots represent the corp’s, the trinity symbols embodies the main doctrine of the NOM, which is balance, the trinity represents MIND, SPIRIT and BODY.
Q: A little over a year ago you mentioned a third and final Blind Cowboy set. I think you said Undead Blind Cowboy if my memory serves. Will there be a possibility that he may come to light in 2015 or is that maybe a future plan.
A: I want to, not sure if there is a market, really hard to know these things, the design is there… you guys want this?
Q: You mentioned a new Adventure Kartel Sunday 4-pack a short while ago. I was wondering if the 4-pack will be the same characters as the Saturday Adventure (Tommy, Little Shadow, Zombot, Zomb) or we might see a change in the lineup. (Johan perhaps?)
A: The new set has Tommy, Shadow, JOHAN Safari Fuck Star, and a Zomb Merc called Minzi. Coming soon to 3AA members!
Q: Will the next WWR EVOL Dirty Deeds Bertie MK2 be a small arms engine ver? Any idea as to when that will go on sale? I imagine getting another in while hatchery are making the Civic and DD Berties would be good? Any chance one of the new DD's will have a stork eye and poncho?
A: Small engine, soon as we have a sample, so you guys have a good idea of the final, I hate to use art, but it was what it was, love you for backing me up. Mid to late Feb for second Dirty! mmm maybe a poncho, if we can make it cool looking, not so easy!
Q: Is jungle prophet Rothchild the same as Evol Roth or does he change his look as jungle prophet? Such as – beard, rusty robo arm and cammy poncho? No longer as clean cut?
A: Nope, the names like Jungle Prophet are given by others, Roth is crazy, but he ain’t mad.
Q: I'm very excited for the new coming characters and situations from WOIP. I wanted to save up for that! Can you please tell us more information on that and what’s next (eg, how many female/male)? Thank you.
A: We have Bambi soon, ISO’s greatest nemesis and competition. Then French the first male character in the series for new characters. We also have SCI-SPY ISO 2 pack, and bits and pieces. We have a CNY MIYU for 3AA members soon too. ISO is a pillar of ThreeA, so expect much this year!
Q: Ash any updates on Die Antwoord Donker figures? Will we see them this year and when first teaser might go up?
A: Early March, rats rule as they say!
Q: Are you still interested in doing the art (and not only the covers) for a writer's comic series or are those days long gone?
A: Long gone, my time is only for ideas or TP. Not enough time to do it all, so I pick my words.. Anyway never get offered Batman…sigh.
Q: Getting excited about the Girl Neptune and Blind Nabler sets that should be coming around soon. What do you think the likelihood is, of seeing the Miss and Mrs. set in 2015?
A: If I can make it great and compelling without showing their faces etc. be a fun set, need to print the second book too!
Q: Ash, I really crave for Bramble in 1/6th scale, any chance of it happening? I know that many are feeling the same. Some new weapons would be Über-cooll! And perhaps new armor plates, like on WWRp Cavalry Bramble version?
A: You are in luck it’s coming!
Q: Hey Ash can we please get Hemingway in 1/6 and 1/12? Please!
A: 1/6th would be great.. Ok you twisted my arm!
Q: WWRp Cavalry Bramble is beautiful, do you have plans for Bambaland version or other WWRp Brambles at Bamba in general?
A: Thinking on it regarding a Bamba version, have to say getting the WWRp version was great, still a great figure, so much character, expect more!
Q: I love 1:1 Eddy the Cat, absolutely amazing! Do you have plans to make more and put them up for Bamba?
A: There will be a limited selection offered sometime soon, different colours though, representing cats I have had or have known!
Q: Will the long awaited WF Armstrong see any design changes or new weapon? Are Armstrongs prevalent in EVOL and SOTF? Will you ever do a new version of the Armstrong, like MK2?
A: Still looking for it….
Q: Myself and some of the other WWR fans have noticed some of the recent bots have been a little less grimy and are worried this is a continuing trend. Is this just happenstance with the nature of recent releases or has the era of filthy bots ended?
A: Some are filthier than others, depending on the corp and locale. No trends at 3A, just the way some are!
Q: Are you a fan of the Punisher? Will Frank be making an appearance in the Marvel line?
A: Yup! This year.
Q: Are there any plans regarding WWR supersets this year? Could we please have the date in advance, so we could save some funds and support it?
A: We have them figured, just need to figure out the dates, we are going to start giving the coming month in advance starting in the next newsletter, anymore than a month ahead and too much can change at 3A!
Q: Hey Ash! Which is the strongest and most powerful TK? And which one is your favorite?
A: EMPEROR TK, sword only had one strike in it, but what a strike, cut a planet in half or make waves felt in Heaven and Hell!
Q: In regard to Evenfall: Can you give a hint as to what we will see in terms of other aliens and their looks? Will there be different kinds of robots to fight different kinds of aliens?
A: I have ideas for many, but have to move slow, the first alien release was very limited in ordering, but now it's out there, there is more interest and as mentioned, we will release a remix version next month, then the THUG robot, then a TOTEM Swat, and see where we are at after that, I have loads of ideas for this series!
Q: Hi guys! Judge Death looks awesome and looking forward to 2000AD figures! My question is do you have any plans on making Rogue Trooper in 1/12? That will be sweet! Any chance of seeing Hammerstein and Joe Pineapples this year?
A: It will come down to how much support there is for the line, if the support continues we would like to make them all! Would love to make the Gronk for SDCC.. too cool
Q: Can we please have a teaser for what is in the next wave of the retail AP line?
A: I wish the interest in AP translated into sales :) but we have AK series 2, WWR and some TK’s for Bamba and retail!
Q: Ash, two-sided question: Nabler's drooly smiles are so iconic. Is there a reason why Nabler Guys didn't feature this smile? only straight mouth and frowns... And may we have a Wave 2 in 2015, this time with drooly smiles, maybe a 2-pack with one of those pretty ladies they like to hump.
A: Coz that's the way he was feeling, BUT he is feeling better, and had allowed us to offer a new series soon, with a smile… which is the scariest NAB GUY of the all! I think a Lady is needed to kick them all in their asses!
Q: Will the Caesar that comes with Evol Rothchild (Battlechild) be rusted and dirty or clean and slick?
A: Dirty, it's a field bot!
Q: Do you have another WWR book lined up for 2015? And if you don’t mind, couple you please tell what books you and T.P work at the moment?
A: Well Beautiful War will arrive soon, then we have GREAT THINGS OF OUR TIMES later on. We are also dabbling in a Pascha strip too.
