    *Arise old thread*

    Does anyone happen to have a spare 1/12 Desert Dropcloth from the recent release they'd be interested in selling/trading?

    Thanks!

    Anyone getting the 3aa membership this year? I am hoping for less Pascha, more bots.

    I'm renewing. I've been in from the start so no stopping now. Last year I purchased much less than previous years, but I am still a big fan of Adventure Kartel and WWRp figures.

    Transformers possibly this year?

    Q: With 3AA almost upon us, I would love to know what licensed figures will we see in 2014? You mentioned Marvel specifically and hinted other designers and artists. I know that 3AA doesn't have written in stone plan, but better hint would be great! SGDM and MaK maybe?
    A: Actually our plans are 90% original content, I see 3A's strength as bringing original ideas to market, regarding licenses thought we have more Halo, Marvel, MGS, Valve universe and Transformers and not forgetting Micronauts. Thats more than enough! Naturally we have some surprises in these realms as well!

    Dunno if he intentionally meant this year or a generic license he's going for, or if that's a typo..., but I think there are a few TF fans that get his stuff. I'm renewing anyway.

    Would this go under third party or not?

    If it is officially licensed then it would not go under third party.

    Sorry for the noob question. Can someone explain to me the 3A membership and why their online store has absolutely nothing on it.

    Ebay:
    The 3A membership is sold once a year, usually in January. Then during the year, there are 3AA pieces sold exclusively to 3AA members that purchased the membership.

    ok so there's only a one time window a year to get the membership. The site bambalandstore.com carries there stuff, but it's only available to members. Everyone else has to buy through ebay or something else? What's the cost of membership and is it worth it? I like some 3A stuff, but not all.

    Ebay:
    I bought most of my 3A collection from ebay or forums. You might find some pieces on the BST here or check other sites like sideshow freaks, toyark, etc.
    The membership is usually around $150. Usually there is a membership figure included in the package along with accessories. The last membership I got in 2011 included a figure, sweatshirt, catalog and baseball cap.
    It's worth it if you figure youll be buying more during the year since last time I checked, it comes with a 10% discount on everything you buy and again, youll have the chance to buy the 3AA figures throughout the year.

    Did anyone buy Emile? When Carter came out everyone was reviewing it, but reviews for Emile are pretty much non-existent. I bought the Bambaland exclusive but I don't plan on taking out of the box anytime soon.

    anyone have tips on fixing loose joints/fingers on threea figures? I assume it's the same process as Transformers and just using some future floor polish or some other product to thicken the ball joints. I'm just scared of popping the fingers and limbs off of these guys. They're expensive and not easily replaced.

    Mainly on one of my WWRp Caesars.

    Thanks for the email. I had seen Remus, but I'd prefer this figure to be in Red or Black.
