already! jeesh, fatalists or what

Well, y'know, 2k fans have had their hopes dashed before with promised figure ranges!

But here's hoping this is the one- I'll second a Gene the Hackman. And Sin/Dex. But most of all there's one series we want, and I'll spell it out to you- ABC.

3A will initially be tackling some of the older, classic characters.

Ashley's particularly keen on a certain group of robots...

To the doomlords talking about it only lasting a few figures ( already! jeesh, fatalists or what), Ashley has a large fan base as an artist as well, so people buy his products as collectors of his work, not just because its WWR, Popbot, or 2000AD- so I cant see these being stuck on shelves in shops gathering dust..

You see Teivion we have had this before with figures (before I go on I shall inform you that I have been known to buy the odd 2000AD item now and again).
It doesn't matter how good the models are it will always depend on price for many fans. We just had a range of models that came out for £100+ and they died a death after the first release and they were superb.
We had the release at Birmingham of the 6 (with 2 variants) recation figures and they didn't sell out. I think it was a 2000 run and the price was very reasonable.
From there it just goes on.

Now believe me I want this to be the line that sells and just keeps giving but looking at past records and all that. Lets hope the fans come out in force and buy.

That is all ;)

To the doomlords...

Ooh! Imagine if someone made Doomlord toys! Highly unlikely to happen, but those'd be cool as owt. Heads you can swap round, energiser ring, a Butlins playset...

A good time to release a range from this would be, oh I don't know, just before Christmas 2010. That way no family member of mine needs worry about what they can get me.
Seriously though that would be the time for optimum sales through the fans!

1/6th scale figures don't usually feature the gimmicks of their regular size action figure cousins but, if there is an ABC Warriors range, it'd be neat if each figure came with a part that with the full set builds into one of these two big boys:





The perspective on that chairs all wrong

I should be too old to be getting this excited about a few toys, but I just cant help myself.
