3A | Q+A
With Ashley Wood
Q: The DDV2 look amazing! Will they be available in 1/12 scale like the original Dirty Deeds set? I was really surprised the latest Bramble was released in two scales at the same time. Really hoping DDV2 can do the same. Or at least get them in Dirty Dozen pack like the old set which the price is incredible high now if you can find them.
Ash: Sorry, no more DD packs in 1/12th, that was a one time only affair. I did think about making 100 in 3AGO size. I love that old set, still a great thing to be able to have made it!
Q: Will the 3AGO Evenfall THUG and Strigoi be up for PO this year? Will the Strigoi include helmets? Will the THUG have different color variations? Are there plans to include the new comics with them?
Ash: Sure, the big one is a lux toy that is kinda price prohibitive, we know that. Itâ€™s a great great toy, but we want others to be able to enjoy the Thuggy at a lower price point! There are many colorways for thug and variations so hoping to offer those over time, but as always itâ€™s up to the support it gets! And yes, the mini Strig will get a helmet, well at least the astronaut version will.
Q: Since weâ€™ve had a new version of 1/6th Brambles, will the 1/6th Armstrongs make a comeback? Maybe an upgrade or are there submersible variants?
Ash: Iâ€™m still looking for the bloody Jungle Armstrong sample, maybe we can try a new Armstrong soon!
Q: Speaking of 1/6th Brambles - what are the chances of OG color ways happening with the new arms?
Ash: When we have shipped the latest, Iâ€™ll look into more, maybe with some new upgrades!
Q: How old is King Thumb and do the Finger Gang ever need to be repaired? Do they have a maker and if so whyâ€™d he make so many jerks?
Ash: They take care of each other, standard built in care protocols, thatâ€™s why they are very successful. They have each othersâ€™ backs and when they are fucked up they fix each other! They were made by a Robot, for a Robot War, but now they are are a rogue group of piss takers and trouble makers with keen obsessions and dislikes. Jerks are petty small time dicks with nothing more than to project their own insecurities onto others. The finger gang is way beyond that, they are high level combat robots, and donâ€™t do things out of pettiness or just to malign!
Q: Slade looks great! Itâ€™s really good to see 2000AD figures rolling out! We know Hammerstein is next, but what are the chances of a 1/12th Ro-jaws to go with him?
Ash: I think so, but to do that we have to get there, the 2000AD line is like all our lines, dependent on the support. I have always said I want to see all the characters from 2000AD as figures, this is my childhood comic love. SDCC will see some great 2000AD exclusives that have been begging to be made and Iâ€™m super excited to know I got the chance to make them!
Q: How are the Dirty Deeds v2 doing? Since its clearly gone past the one a month kind of deal, how often do you expect to get them out? Are you going in any specific order from the original Dirty Dozen or are you tweaking the head decals as you go along?
Ash: We we have the next two made, but as many said monthly was a little tight. We pushed the next back and are on number 5 now. They are what they are, donâ€™t wanna mess with what has not changed in the story world. As I never got a chance in the past to do the Dirty Deeds in 1/6th this is it, not looking to re-invent the wheel but to have a great set of them in 1/6th!
Q: How soon until we see the 1/6th Warbot v2 and some Amazons? Dying for them! Absolutely dying!
Ash: Well 3AGO Warbot might be at SDCCâ€¦
