  • We have seen a bit from ThreeA so far this Toy Fair like their Dr. Doom, Iron Man, and the new figure lines. But of course that wasn’t all that they packed into their booth! There were also Squares. Little ones, big ones, chubby ones, um… well, they’re all kind of chubby aren’t they? So many Squares! I want them all. I guess there were some non-Square related things, but who cares?! Oh that’s right, everyone who isn’t me. Metal Gear Rex, Portal and Team Fortress made an appearance, along with the obligatory Tomorrow Kings & Queens and Adventure Kartel in a new size. There are new figures in a “Parade” line featuring FAT APPLE BIRDS? What even give them all to me. Then there are creepy doll girls called Sleepers and some other stuff you can totes check out after the jump.

  • Sometimes, tributes are a wonderful thing. They showcase your love and appreciation of the deceased, be they a famous person or a family member. Sometimes, though, they are just downright disturbing, and I think this is one of those cases. in icon’s Steve Jobs action figure looks identical, and I do mean identical, to the man himself, in a way that is incredibly eerie. I mean, the guy just died, it’s not like having an action figure of Ghandi or Hitler or some other deceased famous person. Well, let’s all pause a minute to imagine a battle between an army of Ghandi and Hitler action figures… Anyway, in icon’s Steve Jobs is a cool idea I suppose, and it seems well-executed (except for the very doll-looking joints). It’s all a little Uncanny Valley for me, and I think maybe in a year or two I’ll find it less creepy, but right now it’s a doll of a guy who just died. If this is the figure for you, you can get one here for the low, low price of $99.99 ($109.99 to the US). It’s a pre-order and apparently quantities are very limited, and it will be shipping in February. He comes with a ton of accessories, including 2 (yes 2) apples, one with a bite taken out of it. Accessories not included? The mini iPhone and iPad he is shown with, which I find somehow hilarious. It’s obviously not approved by Apple, so do you guys think this is a legitimate tribute or are they just trying to make money off of his death? Let us know in the comments!

  • Earlier today we showed you the newest addition to the WWR world of ThreeA, Caesar, and now, we have an image of the secret colorway, which is, by far, the best colorway. This tribute piece to Apple Computer’s Steve Jobs entitled Ap-Pel features the classic 80s Apple rainbow on the shield as well as Steve J written on its chest. It also comes in a beige colorway familiar to anyone who owned a Mac computer pre-iMac and is without a doubt, one of the best tie ins I’ve ever seen. This figure will be released alongside the other pieces on Wednesday the 14th at 9:00 am Hong Kong time on the Bambaland store and is said to be about the same run size as all of the other colorways. I’d love to add this piece to my collection, but at $230, it’s quite pricey, but are any of you readers thinking of picking this piece up due to its amazing colorway? [via the ThreeA forums]
