校对:14

Welcome to our latest Q&A session with Ashley Wood! I know that many were really excited about upcoming 1:1 Squares sale last week and today you can find more information about here, plus we have few interesting questions about DestinyHALO; Half-Life 2 (in 1/6th and 8" 3AGO scale) andTransformers. And of course you can find more intel about our own worlds, such as WWRAdventure Kartel and Popbot!

欢迎回到Q&A环节。我知道大家都很期待接下来的1:1方块发售,今天你会了解刀更多的信息,另外本期涉及还到Destiny(命运),HALO(光晕),Half-Life2(12寸和8寸系列的半条命)以及变形金刚。当然,除了这些合作款,本期还有更多关于WWR,AK和POPBOT系列的新闻噢!

Before we proceed, here is how you can submit your fresh and original questions: by contacting me via mail: gimbat@threeAonline.com ; by using Ask thread at official 3A forum; submitting them by posting at WorldOf3A Facebook page wall or via WorldOf3A twitter and your question might get featured (as sadly we can't answer on each and every questions here) in one of future sessions. Thank you for all your questions and interest.

在我们开始之前,你可以通过邮件联系我(gimbat@threeAonline.com)来发送您原创的感兴趣的问题;或者通过3A的官方论坛的 Ask thread ,也可以Facebook的WorldOf3A Facebook page wall的官方页面,或者在Twitter上通过 @WorldOf3A ,在您提交问题之后,您的问题可能在之后得到回答(因为我们不可能回答每个问题)。谢谢您的关注。

Q: With the recent World War Robot Mighty Square sale, I was wondering what the Mighty Squares actually do on the battlefield and what advantage they have over the smaller Squares?

A: They are like hubs, mobile logistic centers. They can also be fitted to haul heavy shit etc

Q:伴随着近期WWR的重装方块/板凳方块快发售,我想知道大方快实际上在战场上干什么,他们和小点的方块相比的优势又是什么?

A: 重装方块很像航口枢纽平台,也就是一个移动的后勤供给中心(大方快装着小方块)。他们还可以用来搬运大型的东西等等。



Q: Any chance to see entirely new Adventure Kartel Fighting JC at Bambaland this or next year? I love this guy!

A: I think next year will herald BFTG JC.

Q: 今年或是明年,我们才有机会见到彻头彻尾新设计的JC发售啊?
A: 我预计明年会推出BFTG JC。(有那么只乐队叫做Bigger Fish Than Guns)

Q: You mentioned there was a possibility of a 6th Anniversary Tomorrow King 3-pack to be made available as general sales, any update on that? And what are the chances for offering these classic TKs bundled with some new bot heads (killer for new collectors and veterans who have OG ones)?

A: With our packed schedule it doesn’t seem possible at this time, we have new TK’s to focus on anyway, great to see the classic again, but our eyes are firmly on the future!

Q:你提到了会发售3P套装6周年TK的可能性,有没有什么新消息?有无发售这些经典TK套装但是配新款机械人头的可能性?

A:就目前我们满的不能再满的工期表来看,此时此刻看似乎不太可能发售,我们的重心是推出新款TK不论如何,很高兴又再次见到了经典TK们,但我们的重心始终是放在未来!

(似乎3P的计划要流产,新TK仍然是重点)

Q: I'm a huge VALVe fan and own all of threeA Portal related stuff. What are the chances of seeing the Half-Life figs that was mentioned earlier in the year?

A: We are working away on Half Life 2 in 1/6th and we will be having a range on the 8” 3ago line. More info when closer to release!

Q:我是VALVe(游戏制造商,阀门,作品是要塞军团、半条命、传送门等)的粉丝,目前我已经有了全部3A出品的传送门系列玩具。你还会推出今年早些时候你提到的半条命系列玩具吗?

A: 我们正在马不停蹄的研发1/6半条命系列,我们还会推出8寸的3AGO系列。近期会公布更多信息!


Q: Seems that a lot of Tomorrow Kings are searching the Underverse lately, why is that?

A: Because its where everything started and will end. Plus they like all of us, they are looking for their home.

Q:貌似最近有很多TK正在寻找Underverse(异世界),这是为什么啊?

A:因为那里就是一切故事开始和终结的地方。另外,TK和我们一样,他们正在寻找自己的家。


Q: I'm curious about the Irimi Mortis Hoaxer, why does she have a gas mask? Is it Irimi disguised as a Mortis or the other way around?

A: Not a mask, thats the face.  

Q: 我好奇为什么Irimi Mortis Hoaxer(她被翻译为‘Mortis戏弄者’,10月24号发售的F5产品)为什么戴着防毒面具?是她为了把自己伪装成Mortis,还是因为其他原因?

A: 那不是毒气面具,那是她的脸。

(所以...Hoaxer one是有可能面具是.....?)



Q: Anything you can share about upcoming 1:1 Squares sale you briefly mentioned? Like a price and how shipping options would be handled?

A: Price includes shipping, which is actually the largest part of the price. Price and other info when its time, these are my brillo boxes, this is what 3A gives me the ability to create large items without the hindrance of market forces. These Squares represent a path I have been going towards since I started 3A. So I guess I can clear up some stuff. The Squares will in fact be on Bambaland now, as well its my store and everyone knows it and wont have any issues thats using my other store might incur! As said the price in inclusive of shipping. There are 20 variants made, 15 will be sold on bamba, instead of artist editions Im just keeping some them, and not diluting the market with AP editions. There are also 5 DIY versions to be painted by yours truly, but not sold with these editions, but for later gallery or show events. We will have the final price this coming week, once the shippers finalize the costings.

Q: 谈谈关于接下来1:1方块的发售吧?类似它们的价位和如何运输它们?

A: 价格会包含运费,其实运费也是占价格里最大的部分(最主要的开销)。这些是我自己的Brillo Box(著名波普艺术作品,即一个肥皂盒,但作者Andy Warhol赋予它一种意义),3A给我提供了不用考虑市场因素就可以创作大型玩具(艺术)的机会。这些大方块的含义非凡,代表着从我开始创立3A那一刻我便一直坚持前进与奋斗的方向 。所以我可以确定一些发售的信息目前。这些方块会在官网发售因为官网是我的官网,不会在我自己的其他网站发售!像我刚才说的,价格会包含运费。一共会制作20个版本,15款会在官网发售,我自己会保留一些款式(为了不稀释市场)。还会有5款DIY版本是你们来上色,但这些版本不发售,而是用来参加之后的画廊展览和玩具展会。一旦运输商敲定最后的运费,我们将会公布1:1方块的最终价格。



Q: Huge Microman fan here and you have my envy! Please do share, how does it feel to design your own? And what Microman awesomeness is coming our way?

A: Feels Great, a dream come true! If all goes well we will have some new designs very soon!

Q: 微星小超人的死忠聚集在此,我们太嫉妒你了!设计了属于自己微型人后是什么感觉?哪些微型人就要来了?

A: 我感觉好极了,一个梦想实现了!如果一切顺利,我还会很快设计一些新款!



Q: Any info you can share about the AKLUB Ms. Shadow figure? Will we see any photos before she ships or you want to surprise us?

A: Soon!     

Q: 能不能分享一些关于AK俱乐部的Ms. Shadow的图片啊?在她发货前我们能看到图片吗?还是你要给我们一些惊喜?!

A: 很快!

Q: Any chance of doing one of those Tomorrow Kings masks again from Re-Venture? Would love one of those! TKLUB thingy or some sort of anniversary?

A: They were creepy and great, maybe a new one one day if we do a 3A show!   

Q: 还会制作像RVHK一样的TK面具吗?很想要一只!以TK俱乐部的形式或者任何的庆典活动(的形式推出)?

A: 那些面具诡异但棒极啦,如果有一天我们举办一个3A展览也许会有新款的面具!



Q: The addition of the Ronin solidified that a certain amount of Tomorrow Kings are able to turn away from the primary mission. Are there any outright nasty, bad-apple, criminal TKs wandering around (Lopers aside)?

A: Lopers are not bad, intact they are probably the best chance the TK have! There are many TK’s that fall away from their teachings, some just wander, some make a difference, some change the universe.

Q: 浪人TK进一步巩固了有一部分TK可能会厌恶自己的使命(斩杀机器人)而逃避掉的理论。那是否存在彻头彻尾肮脏,邪恶,沦为犯罪者的tk呢(撇开lopers不算的话)(感谢@Zeonic订正)

A: 乱入者并不坏,完好无缺的他们可能是最棒的TK!有很多TK逐渐质疑自己的使命,有一些便徘徊游走,一些会试图改变,一些则真的改变了世界。


Q: Can we please get Future Mort for 3AA 2015?

A: He is on the list!

Q: 2015年的会员礼可不可以是Future Mort(未来版本的Les Mort 13,即黑袍红围巾骷髅,Kiba的T恤图案)?

A: 他在备选名单上!



Q: Why has it come to “the last TK” what happened to the DNA samples?

A: Well its because…………….

Q: 为什么会出现“最后的TK”,他们的DNA样本出现了什么问题?

A: 这个,其实,是,因为,那个,我,还,没。。。。。。



Q: Excited to see what plans you have for the Halloween release!  Would love to see your take on a monster line!?!

A: Well Halloween is special this year as we get to introduce our new designer Crystal! Watch the blog!

     

Q: 知道会有万圣节发售后我好兴奋,我会很高兴你能推出怪物系列噢!

A: 今年的万圣节会很特殊噢,因为我们要隆重向大家介绍我们的最新设计师Crystal!快去看看我们的BLOG吧!



Q: You mentioned that Dead Astronaut Gangsta is going to be employing the help of Golden Dolphin to hunt Tommy but what does Peppermint Grove think of her brothers actions. Is she going to be a “villain" also or is she siding with Tommy and the gang?

A: She wants her brothers robot hand, and quite willing to kill him to get it, Peppermint doesn’t really think much of the Dolphin, her plans and thoughts are on bigger things.

Q: 你提到过AK的死亡宇航员打算雇佣金海豚来协助他杀掉Tommy,我好奇薄荷姐姐是怎么看待他弟弟的计划和行动的。她将会是以反派身份登场,还是她会站在Tommy这伙人这一侧?

A: 机械手!金海豚的机械手!她一心只想着如何除掉他拿到机械手,薄荷姐姐根本没在乎金海豚。并且,她酝酿着一盘更大的棋。(这是要变成AK系列大Boss的节奏)




 

Q: Do you have any plans for a 2015 calendar? I really need one!

A: I do, but do you guys really want one?

Q: 有没有2015年的年历了吗!我需要一份! (提问者,你这是多想不开)

A: 我有,但你们真的想要吗?



Q: Will we see more hand options included with figures down the line. Fists, better gripping sword hands, eta?

A: Some have come with them already, some don’t, depends on the toy and my thinking on it.

Q: 我们会见到更多手型吗在接下来的产品里,例如拳头,握剑的手型等等?

A: 有一些产品已经有手型了,但一些还没有配备,这取决于玩具本身,和我的想法!


Q: With Daywatch & Nightwatch bots being confirmed as NOM ever since "the parade",... are there any other “NOM bot factions" out there under their regular sway? Emanation & Calignosity stork eyes look to be the start of something newly revealed, so I’m curious if the 1/6 world will see NOM's bots broaden out.

A: Im sure they will….

Q: 自从“阅兵”后,守日和守夜机械人就被证实属于NOM派系,我想问还有其他的机器人打着“我们是NOM机器人”的吗? 双鼻NOM指挥官MK2.1的小药丸(1/12)发售似乎预示着一个新篇章的开始,我好奇1/6系列还会有更多的NOM机器人登场吗?

A: 我确定会的。。。




Q: I don't know that much (really anything at all) about Adventure Kartel, but seeing the inclusion of JC, one would think that there is somewhat of a Judeo-Christian presence in the AK universe. Are there other biblical entities present in that world (angels, demons, Saints (besides the obvious Saint of Vengeance), Lucifer, etc.?

A: AK has everything going, its my sandbox, you name the combo it can happen!

Q: 我不太了解AK系列,但看到JC后我就感觉AK的世界观是犹太教与基督教共存的。我想知道还有没有其他出自圣经的物体会在AK这个世界中登场(天使,恶魔,圣徒,当然排除掉显而易见的Les Mort 13, 路西法等?
A: 在AK世界里什么都可能会发生,它是我的沙箱(即开放世界观),你能说的出来的都有可能发生。不怕我做不到就怕你想不到!

 

Q: You mentioned threeA show in Hong Kong this December, very excited about it and hoping that I can make it there. Are there any dates? Is it going to be up for few days / weeks?

A: Well we have a booth at Toy show in December in Hong Kong, all info dates on the blog soon!

Q: 你提到过今年12月会在香港有3A的展会,我非常激动希望能争取到现场。具体是哪一天?是持续几天还是几周?

A: 是这样的,在12月的香港,我们会在玩具展上有展位,其他细节会在近期公布!


Q: There was talks about a Transformers line a while ago. Is there anything you can share about it?  

A: On sale very very soon! Really, watch the blog!

Q: 好久前就提到了变形金刚系列,目前进展如何?

A: 就在近期发售!真的,没骗你,去看博客!

(据说是电影版大黄蜂呢.......)

 

Q: I have always been a fan of 1/6 and 1/4 scale articulated figures and I see them as a form of art, which is why I also want to make them as well. However I do not know how to begin and would like to ask for your advice so that I may start my path to make them for fun and have a career doing what you love to do like you.  What do I have to do or learn to make 1/6 articulated figures like you and other well known 1/6 scale artists? What skills or experiences do I need to acquire? Thank you very much for your time, I hope you can help me and I look forward for your response.

A: Just do it, get a 1/6th body and go for it ( make the heads hand and feet, hand sculpt, use 3D software and cheap 3D printers to produce etc ), but the best skill, don’t  follow or do what is being done, the world needs you vision and originality, not more hot toys, or ash wood 3A looking stuff, the best path is you path, and it will be the most successful. A hint, sure you can take and build on successful stuff out there, but at best its a remix, your not the originator nor really an artist, just a engineer of minor change and smoke , be an artist, be original and not look to be popular but a way to serve a new vision!

Q: 我一直都是1/6和1/4可动玩具的忠实拥簇,我视它们为艺术品,这也是为什么我想亲手制作!但是,我不知道从哪开始。我想请教你,然后便开始我的艺术生涯,就像你一样!我需要具备哪些素质,哪些技艺,和经验才能像你们一样成为大师(Ash也不会制作其实)?非常感谢你宝贵的时间,我希望你能引导我,期待你的回复!

A: 放手去做,找一个1/6的素体开工吧(制作头雕,手脚,用3D软件打印绘图并用便宜的3D打印机打印出这些)。但最最重要的是一点,是不要变成别人,让他顺其自然的发展!这个世界所需要的是你的想象力和创造性,而不是另一个HT或者Ash的3A模样的东西!最重要的成功途经是你自己风格,这也会最为成功!如果给你一些提示和建议,你可能会在一开始成功,但这充其量就是个混搭再创作,你不是真正的艺术家,只是一个做了微调的工程师(匠人)。做一个真正的艺术家,坚持原创,不要试图变的受欢迎,而是找到一条可以让你眼中的未来实现的途径!


Q: it’s revealed that three original Tomorrow Kings (Hideo, Yoji, and Kenshiro) have brothers (the 7th TK), but how about Tomorrow Queens threeway (Yubi, Odayaka, Yumiko), do they have any sisters? Yubi is my favorite TQ so far.

A: The TKLUB FREE TQ’s are pretty much that, the same linage!

Q: 目前我们已知了6周年(不是7周年)TK是元祖3TK的兄弟,那么当初的3 TQ有没有妹妹,Yubi(黑皮衣)是我最爱的TQ到目前为止!

A: 集齐这次的4款TKLUB(4-7)后的赠品Classic TQ大概就是当年那些TQ的妹妹吧!



Q. Before I renew my 3AA I would like to know, will the majority of figures released during 2015 be available for 3AA Members for a 24 hr period as they have been in previous years? Several times now you have mentioned changes in 2015 to improve things, and also more pre-made figures to avoid waiting. Based on previous pre-made releases this seems to mean limited numbers and a frenzy on Bamba to grab toys. Will 3AA members get any guarantees with this new approach? I certainly would be very concerned about renewing if not. I am sure I am not alone in being unable to regularly monitor a website and wait for random drops over a 24hr period. I certainly cannot be awake regularly at 9.00am Hong Kong time either. Please can you reassure that 3A toys won’t get harder to buy for 3AA members?  

A: I get that, but the problem with guarantee per figure is we cannot make stuff ahead of time, which is a path for 3A, sure many toys require pre-order, expensive or toys that cannot fall easily into pre-made territory etc ( but with guaranteed delivery dates and short production windows ). But I think the ability to buy and get a toy the same week is a good trade off, sure there is chance you can’t get them all. From all accounts as we talk to the members at shows and online, is that the discount is paramount, the biggest complaint is the wait, the delays, so have taken note. We have a good idea on the amounts needed for toys, we can gauge whats needed, but someone will always miss out I’m sure, not fun, but we want to change the way things are done and that will be met with opposition. I hope the reason you collect out toys is because you love them, not because its easy to collect or simple, I concur that doesn’t make up for the fact that you might not get something you really want either. So in short 2015 3AA will be similar, but there will be pre-made ready to ship toys that have no guarantee attached for anyone. Maybe this time next year I won’t be writing these responses as 3A is ghost due to my ideas of selling toys, but you know, at least I didn’t just keep my head down with my eye on your wallet  stick with the status quo, enjoy 6-12 month pre-order windows to milk the toy market down the last dollar etc and take no risks,  bring a different ( actually the old way of selling toys ) way of doing things to market. We love every 3AA member, and never would we want shade brought to your world, but we have try and do things differently, its in my blood, and I think many of you will get that.

Q: 在续订2015会员之前,我有一些疑惑希望你能解答。是否会员在2015年仍然有24小时的保留特权就像往年一样!?你已经提到过若干次2015年会采取不一样的发售模式,会有更多的pre-made(预先制作)玩具!基于之前几次pre-made发售,这些数量稀有的(提前做好)玩具在官网Bamba遭到疯抢。3AA会员是否会得到保障在购买pre-made玩具上?我着实十分担心是否需要续订会员。我确定像我这样无法24小时盯着显示器刷F5的玩家大有人在。我的时区导致当9点发售时,我一般都在睡觉!你能保证如果作为会员,在2015年里,3A玩具不会那么难购买吗?

A: 我能理解你的意思,但说道担保每一款玩具都能买到(是不现实的)因为我们不能在时间之前制造出玩具,这也是3A的出路(采取Pre-made),我知道很多玩具都需要预定,也有很多玩具不能划入预定的范畴(但是如果附上有保证的发货时间和更短的生产期这一切都值得一试)。我认为可以买到玩具并且在同一周拿到玩具是一个合理的交换条件(采取Pre-made)。我们的会员有着所有产品85折优惠的优势,唯一遭到大家抱怨的就是等待时间和延期发货,我们也都悉心听取了大家的建议。我们很清楚玩具大概的数量,因为我们可以评估大概的需求量,但总会有人会买不到玩具,这点我很确定,这不好笑我知道,但是我们想要改变一些约定俗成的事情,我们会做到但也会有阻力。我希望你收集玩具的原因是你热爱玩具,而不是他们很容易收集,我承认这一切并没有弥补你也许没有买到心爱玩具的事实。所以长话短说,明年的会员礼还会和今年类似,那些Pre-made并可以随时发货的玩具对谁都没有保证。也许明年这会儿我不会有机会在回答你们的问题因为因为我的发售策略明年3A就挂掉了,但是你知道,至少我没有低着头只盯着你的钱包,让你们傻等6-12个月的Pre-order玩具,不冒任何风险,并且维系这种现状且不思进取。我们珍视热爱每一位3AA会员,我们也不想让每一位玩家添堵,但是我们不得不尝试新的销售方式,这一切都是我的使命,我认为很多你们之中的玩家会理解我!


Q: With all the bots you make, did threeA ever thought about diecast? Berties for example would be jaw dropping…

A: It would be great, fully agree!   

Q: 做了这么多机器人,3A有没有考虑过出diecast/合金版的机器人过啊?药丸会是让我们高兴的合不拢嘴的如果推出合金版本。。。

A: 这会很给力,我非常赞同你的想法!


Q: Is there still a possibility of getting a threeA Covenant Elite as part of the Halo line, or are only Spartans like the Master Chief being developed at this time?

A: We have the Elite, actually one of the first figures we started, we want to release it too!

Q: 还会推出3A版本的星盟精英吗?还是说只有斯巴达战士正在被开发此时?
A: 我们会推出精英的,它其实是最早开发的产品,我们也打算推出它!



 

Q: Are there any Fallen or Hive figures in development for the Destiny line? I’d really love to see a Fallen Captain or Hive Wizard figure.

A: When we get these licenses we do with the intention of making all the cool characters , the only thing stopping the line covering all the bases is the success of it. I know our Destiny figures will be unmatched, like our Halo toys are the best going, we take great pride in these and really hope to deliver the characters we all  want to see!

Q:请问有没有开发Destiny系列的Fallen(堕落者,游戏中拥有4手的敌对种族)或Hive(蜂巢, 古老的不死种族)目前?我很想看到Fallen Captain或者Hive Wizard玩具化!

A: 当我们拿到版权的时候,我们就打算制作全部的角色,唯一能不能顺利进行下去的要素就是市场反应。我知道我们的Destiny系列玩具会是独一无二的,就像我们的Halo系列是最棒的Halo玩具一样,我们感到自豪,也真心希望可以持续推出其余的角色,让我们拭目以待!




Q: When are we gonna see a photo or teaser of the World War Robot 1/6 Birdcage? Really want a look so I can see what I am saving for. There are a few WWR things coming up for preorder in December, but cant get them all unfortunately. So need to plan a little.

A: When its ready to show, over the years I have found it detrimental to show before finished, opinions are forged without all parts in place! Birdy is moving along great and we will real asap! I do appreciate your needing to plan as well!

Q: 什么时候我们才能看到WWR1/6的鸟笼的官图或谍照啊?我真的很像看一看,然后我便能更好的做好预算。仅有少数几个WWR系列会在这个12月接受预定,但很不幸没法把他们全部纳入囊中。所以,我真的需要好好规划一下!A: 当一切就绪的时候我们才会放图,经过了这么多年,我意识到在没完工前就放图会产生不良的影响, 鸟笼一切都很顺利,会很快面世!另外我很高兴你需要计划!

 

Q: What was the most fun and challenging part in making your own Doctor Doom?

A: Actually not a challenge, its just fun, I grew up with this stuff, spent life thinking about marvel comics, kinda just flows out. Such a privilege!

Q: 制作Dr. Doom时,遇到最有趣和最大的挑战都分别是什么?

A: 其实并不是挑战,整个过程都是很愉快的。我和这些漫画角色一起长大,我整天都在想着Marvel漫画,在设计的时候有种水到渠成的感觉!非常荣幸!


Q: Any chance you make use of the clear body (like used on Paschaborg) in the world of AK with a ghost character maybe? With GID eyes?

A: I think of the design of Paschaborg it made sensed and worked, has a machine like feel etc. To get a cool ghost effect would take some re-thinking, who doesn’t love a ghost right !!!

Q: 有没有这种可能,制作AK系列的某款幽灵角色(就像赛博帕夏)但是用透明的素体?在配上夜光的眼睛?

A: 我想起了设计Paschaborg(赛博帕夏),这一切都行得通。如果要追求幽灵般的效果,我可以再重新思考下,常言道谁不爱幽灵呢!!
