Threezero, founded by ThreeA co-owner Kim Fung Wong is one of the original producers of the Hong Kong designer figure style, best known for their gasmask logo (designed by Michael Lau) and its many iterations as a street-smart vinyl figure. Designers whose figures have been produced by Threezero include Michael Lau, Jason Siu and Elphonso Lam.
Threezero began producing 12″ figures special forces uniforms around 2000. They were then the pioneer in producing weapons for these figures made from die cast. Threezero has since extended their toy ranges from 12″ figures to designer vinyl collectibles.
Said Monty Oum about the partnership, “When Threezero approached us, RWBY was a young show. I had heard of Threezero and when I looked up their products I was awed by the catalogue of work they had produced. It took a moment to register with me that something I had created could be among the ranks of toy lines like Metal Gear Solid or Game of Thrones. The products are such beautifully crafted artworks, to make tangible some doodles and polygons I’d thrown together in my random fashion is something I could not have fathomed only a few years ago. With the hopes we hold for RWBY as a show and as something many people hold dear, it is a great honor to be regarded among artists from a generation of work that has fueled creations such as this.
