3A Star Wars Alternate

3A’s Ashley Wood dropped a really cool bit of info in their latest 3A H3ADLINES Newsletter. It was revealed that 3A will be producing a line of Star Wars figures, and that the line will be called (for now at least) Star Wars Alternate. Check out the blurb below:

Anyway, what’s been going on? Ok, spent the weekend discussing our upcoming STAR WARS line, which I’ll say is gonna be called STAR WARS ALTERNATE for now, that’s pretty exciting for me, coz I’m one of those f***ers that got inspired the day I saw the first SW film! Creative puberty hit hard that day, soon as I got home that day I made lego space ships and pretended to be Luke Skywalker, I’m not sure I ever stopped. So to be able to add to the story – albeit an alternate view – is a gift, and that goes for all of us who will directly shape this new world. Expect a proper press release and info, and I’m sure everyone will say Ash you can’t just casually announce, but hey I’m Luke Skywalker, and if I remember he kinda just did things his own way!

When more info becomes available, I’ll be sure to share it without readers.
