3A said in a comment on their Facebook page recently that they have plans for 1:6th. Short and sweet but positive for us lot. I've given up trying to guess what might/could happen with 1:12th.

That's some positive news, I guess!

Really want those 1/12 Johnny Alpha, Judge Fire figures and hopefully Anderson and Rogue Trooper are being considered too!   :thumbsup:

We know Alpha ended up being too expensive to produce as a 1/12 figure so perhaps scaling it up to 1/6 would make it viable.

What factors make the Alpha model so expensive versus say Sam Slade? The popularity, number of parts, material type??
More interested in him versus a Tharg or Sam Slade. Didn't stop me getting Sam either.

From memory Sam used some existing 3A parts and was only $50 or so at retail. Alphas costs were pointing to an RRP of $130 which just isnt happening for a 1:12th scale figure. Last I heard they were looking at other factories and such like to see if the cost could be brought back nearer the right price for the scale.

I'd pay a premium for a 1/6 Alpha.

Paid £260 for a vader.....if that was the cost of an Alpha, I'd still go for it.

The Alpha they had on display certainly had lots of bits (guns & electronux and time bomb etc), whereas Sam just had his gun and cigars.  They may have made him with a removable helmet or swappable head and I guess there was more to Alpha's outfit too, with armour and bandolier/holster.
