ThreeA is proud to announce it’s collaboration with Marvel Comics. That’s right! The house of ideas that is Marvel Comics and ThreeA, are putting their combined talents together to bring you one epic line of 1/6 figures.

The line will consist of classic Marvel characters re-imagined by artist Ashley Wood in the ThreeA style. All the Marvel goodness that you already know and love, with an extra added twist. Releases will start in 2013.

To get the chance to play with Marvel Comics awesome characters is kinda mind blowing...” – Ashley Wood


:shock:

I probably won't buy any of these just due to budget constraints, but I can't wait to see what they look like. I saw the headline and thought "Superfly!".

I cant wait to see Marvel Characters done by Wood. Granted I wont be buying them either because I cant afford 3A's stuff but it is beautiful and I still lust after it.

Never bought any of these toys in the past. Not about to start now.

They are just too weird for me.

Happy for those of you into them, though.

In regards to the list, a lot of the 3A sales I would imagine depend on preorders to see if they are going to meet a specific sales goal so them getting cancelled is the market speaking in many cases. That said, Marvel would be putting up the money for these so if they ink contracts its a pretty safe bet that they will be putting them out unless something happens with the designs being total crap or something else takes the slot of those figures.

I'm very curious to see how these develop if they do and what style they will be. I gotta assume that they will be more high dollar figures as well seeing as 3A is onboard to make them.

I may be in the minority here, but those Iron Man figures suck! Just IMO of course.

No, no, no, it's ok. They are really weird looking.

But hey, variety is the spice of life. How many times can I see the Iron Man movie armor Mk 4, 6, 7, whatever, by Hasbro, SH Figuarts, Figma, before I get burned out?

I like to throw really weird Iron Man armors into my collection. That's why I want Hasbro to make odd armors like Ablative armor, SKIN armor, Plastic Ghost armor and so on.

So sometime really weird could work for me.
But I have to wait to see if they release one in 1/12 scale, because if it can't hang out with my other IM toys, then I don't bother.


But the Dr Doom they showed at ToyFair? OK, that is too weird for me.
