Welcome to the second H3ADLINES newsletter!

Since the last newsletter I have focused primarily on box art from ZOMB MD to the retail Pascha boxes, this alone is a full time job but on top of this there was discussions of the upcoming Japan show in September, editing toys in production such as the upcoming 24” Isobelle Pascha line, and the Donker figures etc. But mainly it was an art week, on top of paintings, I worked on comics from ZvR, Adventure Kartel, WWR to Closing Pandora, the art, comics go hand in hand with the toys, they wouldn’t exist without each other, that connection is the backbone of 3A for my stuff, even when you guys don’t see it all, its there in my studio, or at minimum in my head. Every toy has a story!
 
Figured i would show you how I start with an idea for a new toy with the attached image, it's of an upcoming Garland and Faust set, called OCTOBER FEST OF DEATH. As I draw away the story, the scenario the reason for this set comes tumbling out, the reason they are wearing the clothing they do, to the lettering, which not only is fun to do, but for me opens up my brain to think, create and connect to ether. From this initial sketch we would start to make a sample, as we go editing and tweaking until you guys get to see it. I really believe if everything has a reason to be it will work, work as in making sense to me and hopefully some of you guys!
Hopefully this time next week I can tell you all about a new line that not only excites my inner child but gives my adult creative side a huge hit of fuck yea!  Well here is a little blurry thing, I’m sure some of you can figure it out!

How did you discover 3A?
I first saw them in an issue of Toyfare Magazine, but I didn't pay much attention due to the scale being 1/6th. I would later see RIP 003 Caesar posted on Facebook and when I looked into it I noticed it was 1/12th scale. From then on I have been hooked and completely smitten with Action Portable!

What was your first 3A figure?
The 1/12th Boiler Zomb.

Favorite 3A items in your collection?
1/12th Zombkin, Dirty Deeds, Warbot, Choose Life Zombs.

What would you like to see made or are looking forward to?
AP Dead Astronaut Gangsta and everything else made in 1/12 scale.

What is your 3A grail?
The WWRp Hatchery Bertie or the Hatchery Severed Head.

Where can we find you online?
misspentadulthood.com and the AP Legion!

 


3A | Q+A

With Ashley Wood

Q: The DD's are brutal and merciless, but are the DDv2 also more skilled in combat, more crafty, sneaky and overall more bad-ass than the average Bertie Mk2?
Ash: The V2 are much more advanced and independent, having N.O.M tech and teachings make them a bigger threat to Rothchild than ever.
 
Q: Who is leading the DDv2 squad?
Ash: Nom de Plume has command of them as much as any human can command a pack of wolves, you're in command till you're not! The original DD were found by NOM de Plume, who brought them back to the Supreme N.O.M, as they were considered a special kind of bot, the N.O.M have a way of communicating with robots and were much impressed by their singular vision of hunting down Rothy. As mentioned before, NOM de Plume sensed that there was more to the DD when he came across them!
 
Q: Is there any particular reason N.O.M sends the DD after Roth again? It does seem so ironic that, again, he is hunted by them like no matter what a date with destiny has been set and Roth will be facing them. Is that the Supreme's idea of comedy?
Ash: DD and Roth are entwined by destiny, the DD won't stop until they hold his head high. Rothchild knows of all this, the DD coming back to Earth, the N.O.M getting involved, Rothchild and N.O.M are polar opposites, Rothchild is Darwin, N.O.M IS Nietzsche.
 
Q: Will this upgraded version of the Deeds see new weapons load outs more suited for the jungle territories? Possibly flame throwers or chainsaws?
Ash: The DDV2 will have new weapons, but that depends on the support, can’t make the 12 if no one is buying.
