ThreeA Toys and its designer Ashley Wood is one that lies somewhere between the realm of action figures, pop art, statues, and designer toys. With 1/6th (12") scale robots and humans with prices upwards of $300+ collecting them as a line would have your wallet screaming. But now we have 'action portables', 1/12th or six-inch scale versions. Badbot is part of the wave sold in February and is just now shipping.Yes they are significantly less expensive
Bambaland store is tabbed into the shipping box to keep it safe, a neat idea.
Articulation for Badbot is pretty amazing. First off every joint of his small 1/2" wide hands is articulated. He can spread his fingers as they're on ball joints, make a fist, or hold his guns with a decent firmness. Double ball joint shoulders and waist give him great range as does a ball head/wrists/hip/ankles. The biceps turn and the elbows/knees/toes are hinged. One issue is the ankle ball joints are tiny and are quite loose, his feet falling off easily and making it nearly impossible to stand. Hopefully this isn't widespread. I had to spend a good hour tightening them with superglue around the edges but they still are designed to just barely sit in their sockets. His knees don't hit a 90 deg angle but come close.
Badbot's accessories are nice. Two large guns make up his arsenal and are done with the same weathered rust effects he has. Their cylinders spin and you can see little bullets in there. He also comes with a cloth goods duffel bag with a cat stuffed inside. The bag's zipper works as does the adjustable strap, also covered in weathered splatter.
Ebay expect quite a bit more. Our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has similar ThreeA figures and will probably have Badbot in stock soon. One serious drawback is the six months production time from when you first order ThreeA figures directly. Some people will lose interest waiting for so long or in my case relocate and have to go through the hassle of forwarding a package registered from China. But if highly articulated, designer action figures is your thing then look ThreeA up. They're also doing mainstream licenses like Halo, Metal gear Solid, and Real Steel.
