Episode 4: PopBot Primer

Episode 4- Popbot Primer

To download, "right-click" and "save link as" HERE.

In this episode, I take my first pass at tackling Ashley Wood's comic series Popbot. I give a brief publishing history of the book, then pop my knuckles and give a (mostly) spoiler-free summary and cursory analysis of the series. I also touch on the different threeA releases to date that have their origin in the Popbot series.

The ThreeA Legion Member Spotlight segment also continues; this time, I chat with Bot Bambina & NoCash, a threeA collecting couple who are also veteran members of the threeA forums.

In keeping with the Popbot theme, this episode also features a review of one of the earliest threeA releases from the PopBot series- The 1/6 Tomorrow King Aki figure.

All this, plus Gimbat's News and a few other surprises, coming to you in episode 4 of the threeA radio fan podcast!

Like a newborn colt taking its first wobbly steps, the threeA Radio podcast is back with episode 3! The show is still evolving, but I think I'm starting to find my rhythm with this thing.

In this episode, I'm joined by three other fans to discuss the release of the newest addition to the 1/6 World War Robot line- the Heavy Bramble mk2.5. Check this mother out-

"What Does Nom DePlume Look Like?"

Episode 2 of the ThreeARadio Podcast is now online. Thanks to all of the folks who have contributed with design work, music suggestions, audio submissions and online discussion.

In this episode, I take a look at the book World War Robot, which features art by Ashley Wood and writing by Ashley Wood and T.P. Louis. The book is actually not a ThreeA publication, but since a huge amount of ThreeA toy ideas come from the book, I figured it was worth looking into.

This episode clocks in at over 2 hours long, and that's AFTER extensive editing. Much of the material cut from this episode was too good to discard, so it is being incorporated into episode 3.

Here's the segment breakdown for this episode:


-interlude (WWR)

-Gimbat's News featuring Devours

-interlude( StarWarsGangstaRap by Bentframe)

-Toy Review featuring contributor ChassBrock- The DePlumes

-Roundtable Discussion- World War Robot (featuring Pitu & BakerTheZombie)

-ThreeA legion Member Spotlight- Yama86
