HOMO FERRATUS - by makadi3000

I'm a designer currently living and working in Zurich, right in the middle of Europe. This blog is about my original toy work and hobby interests. I dedicate it to Japanese artist Kow Yokoyama, creator of the Maschinen Krieger universe, which has always been a teacher and source of inspiration to me, as he is for many contemporary concept artists and illustrators of the 21st century.

Thanks for looking! - Adi D'Agostino aka makadi3000

threeA - Action Portable (AP)

Here's a snapshot of my unboxed AP figures by 3A which are 1/12 in scale (please note that the TQ is a custom and not official 3A). This line particularly stands out due to its perfect analogy to the 1/6 scale toys. The body is a perfect copy of the HT 1/6 Truetype body featuring the same points of articulation and their clothes are made out of fabric - amazing details for an almost unbelievable price!

threeA has nailed the toy market especially with two radical approaches IMHO: Fully articulated robot hands and high quality fabric clothes for 1/12 scale action figures! (and Ash's design of course, lol) Hard to believe that we have had to wait so long for such improvements... expect much more to come!
