    They're both Berties, version 1's, 1/6 scale. The first two toys 3A made :) .

    I'm a year one 3AA member.

    I try to get at least one of every 1/6th scale figure/robot, but I don't always get every colour or variant. There's way too much money and stress involved to get everything. Also the things take up a ton of space.

    I think ThreeA figures are preetty cheap compare to collecting other 1/6 figures...Ashley ususally charge them around $80-$100 with worldwide shipped included

    btw anyone getting Wasabi?

    Bringin' this thread back because Seth Buzzard has caused me to order a WWRP Iron Panda dude. And I am probably going to preorder Armstrongs. So I demand Seth Buzzard post about his ThreeA stuff in here!

    Youll probably like the Armstrongs more than the Martins. The pose ability in the Armstrongs hands is freaking amazing, and overall they just have more detail.

    I wouldnt order from Bambaland unless youre ready to wait double the expected shipping time ( every order has always been longer than they say), but ebay and retailers are the best way to go.

    Ive only got WWRp stuff, aside form my 1:12 Dropcloth. They are nice as well :D

    I got a 3AA membership almost exclusively due to the hope that Rex would be coming out this year. Hopefully it doesn't end up being a waste :( 

    (Oh, and I guess I ordered a 1/6 Grunt, because he looked neat. That might show up sometime in the next three or four months? Maybe?)

    Noir is worth it, so poseable, so unique from anything else, really amazing figure. (I waited 5-6 months for mine from bambaland)

    Theres a couple of the human ones i want. BLeak Mission and TOmmy Mission. I'd kill for a Bertie but i'd have to customize it like the one in the comic.

    Hi.

    Yeah I on;y have one so far but I'm loving it. Got the WWR book today and have the next Armstrong 4 pack ordered as well as the Jungle de Plume/ Dropcloth WWRp 2 pack and a WWRp DIY de Plume. But here's a pic of my Large Martin Big Red if you missed it on Twitter or Let's See Some Cool Stuff.

    when is that DIY & Dropcloth 2 pack shipping, August? Will probably show up in November/December. Realistically. I really wish 3A would get their crap together with shipping times.

    It's not so much shipping times as lead times for production. They take orders far in advance of actually making anything - that keeps their overhead down as they aren't making so much that they're getting screwed with overstock. A four or five month lead time for production and shipping isn't all that unreasonable.
