Is he actually likely to get out of China before Chinese New Year tho? Doubt it. Can't see him landing before end March.

Is Slade on an old-school AP body, like this?



Or is it a different model?

 Speaking of which, does anyone have any photos of the newer AP body (bodies?)?  I'm curious to see how they differ.

Yes, he's using the standard AP body

Dredd, Giant, and Alpha are using a slightly taller more muscular body

Well the purpose is definitely to be able to reuse it for the beefier less clothed characters like Rogue or Mean Machine.

Zombo isn't on the current to do list, but that doesn't count him out further down the line.

PVC or ABS. I really dislike the fragility of this body in ABS. I've had too many break. If in PVC, it'd be much sturdier.

Cool. Johnny Alpha is a done-deal then? Smile Any info on a possible pre-order date?

I'm with you on the PVC. I've had a few of the old AP figures suffer from slight cracks in the shoulder joints. A sturdier plastic would be fantastic.

I'd say 95% of my 1/12 WWRp/AP humans are broken using this body in ABS. Either the screw is stripped and the halves sag open or too tight and they are cracked around the screws or crack at the joints used. The String Divers are the worse, generally. Probably 99% have cracks. I've had to go through and use two part epoxy on the inside to stabilize most. In fact, my favorite was standard Nom de Plume. I 100% disassembled him and filled all the negative cavities with two part Aves apoxie putty and epoxied all the connections and screw points. He's solid now, a bit heavier like PVC, but feels sturdy.

Yes, Johnny Alpha is confirmed. No date or ETA I can announce.

String Divers use a different body than the other AP figures. They're a lot skinnier and have a unique body.

This one is the same body as the AP Fighting JC and AP NOMs. (Which is why we were able to keep the price so low.) There are not very many out there.

Oh, are we getting JUDGES Giant (as in a differentiated Snr and Jnr) or just one and we can make our own mind up as to which it is?

Thanks Gregory. I read up on a few more threads since posting and know you plan on releasing Senior and Junior in different era uniforms/colours. Not sure that I need to have 2 Judge Giants to be honest but I'll buy both to support the line.

Display space will become an issue for me before the cost does. Add 1/6th 2000ad to the mix and I'm going to struggle. Much as I love the idea of 1/6th AND 1/12th lines running together I worry about one line hurting the other.

I can't remember with Death, but are they supplying tracking or they just showing up? Also, kicking myself on Fish and Gronk. Got the SDCC and B&W, but now wish I gotten the dirty set as well. Was strapped at the time.
