    I got the membership pack for 3AA yesterday. 3AA is 3A Associates, an annual membership thing run by 3A (Ashley Wood and ThreeZero) which gets you the sign up pack, a 15% discount on all products bought through their store, 3AA exclusives, and the chance to preorder before they open to the public.

    The box is amazing. It's all heavy duty cardboard in a variety of finishes, stamped with my membership number, and features an 8mm thick sculpted and weathered Ashley Wood Bramble logo on the front:

    Inside is the first WWRP toy, a desert camo Bramble, and membership card made of plastic like a normal credit card:

    WWRP is the new smaller World War Robot series done in 1/12 scale instead of 1/6. They'll be way cheaper but there will be more versions to annoy the crap out of collectors. Bramble has all the same features and articulation as the big boys, just done in a smaller size. It even has working clips on the cloth pouches and three joints per finger:

    Even the soles of the feet are painted and weathered.

    Next to the universal unit of measurement so you can see how big it is:

    And next to the normal Bramble so you can see just how massive those things are. The overall volume never really comes across well in pictures:

    It also came with a T shirt which had one of 5 or 6 random designs on the back:

    Money well spent. I can't wait to see the rest of the WWRP line.

    This, or is it the $300 I heard about?

    Really want a Bramble, but the prices are too scary right now.

    It was $150, but I've already made that back with the discount.
