Fans of the British comic magazine 2000AD will surely recognize Pat Mills’s ABC Warriors and the robot Ro-Jaws from it. For those that don’t know, here’s a brief description: The A.B.C. Warriors are a team of war robots designed to withstand Atomic, Biological and Chemical warface and — for the most part — they are free-will wielding droids who find themselves at odds with their human masters. Ro-Jaws, the comic relief robot of the group, has a working-class mentality and spends a lot of his time in the sewer (both literally and figuratively).
So what does this have to do with designer toys? Well, Ashley Wood’s 3A has acquired the license to release the ABC Warriors as limited edition figures… which makes sense, as these creations are right up Wood’s alley! Ro-Jaws will be the first in the line and, at 1/6th scale, he’ll stand a little over 7.5”-tall. The designs arms are articulated and his front panel opens to hide the included 1/6th scale turd in. We’re told that the tires will even have a “squishy” feel to them!
Ro-Jaws is set to be released on March 22nd at the Bambaland Online Store, with a retail price of $110. Members of the 3AA fanclub will access to an exclusive Blackhole variant edition, which I’m guessing is based on “The Black Hole” storyline from the comic series. And fans… we’re told that Hammerstein is next on the creation list!
I love my Mongrol… Even if he doesn’t love me by fengschwing
Mongrol only love Lara.
The Dark Judges by Ashley Wood
So, ThreeA have outdone themselves in the best way by releasing Mongrol, the first of the 7 ABC Warriors. To say that I’m shocked how good this figure is would be a gross understatement. It’s unbelievably good, fully articulated - there’s joints that I wasn’t expecting to be joints. It’s utterly superb, and puts the WWR line to shame with how advanced it is.
Rufus talks about working with 3A on their line of 2000 AD figures (as well as Tank Girl and his own creator-owned series). He is the best droid for the job as his deep knowledge of 2000AD’s art is couple with an old school style, a combination that is difficult to match.
