The ABC Warriors followed the exploits of an elite team of battle robots that fought against the fascist Volgan Empire. ABC stands for Atomic, Bacterial and Chemical, the three types of warfare situations that the robots were designed to fight in.

New cad files created April 2011 for the Remaster:
This is a lifesize ABC warrior from JUDGE DREDD. I was lucky enough to come across an opportunity to own the molds used to produce the film-used Head and Jaw. The parts are all cast in high impact plastic. Advanced modeling skills are recommended for this buildup.
The raw kit (you trim, assemble and paint yourself) is $295 and includes:
- 2 red transluscent eyes
- left temple insert
- right temple insert
- earcaps (2)
- greeblies to detail the temples
- collar (used to support the display)
The price of the new kit is uncertain and includes much more resin than the previous kit version. I will *try* to keep it under 300 for all the parts.
******NEW PARTS COMING APRIL 2011: Retooled eye sockets with eye controller rings. New accurate jaw and skull piston actuators. New collar wishbone (wider, longer, more accurate). Re-detailed temple insets for accuracy. Rear panel accurized on the jaw plate.
New completed parts:
The eyes in the above photos represent two different sculpts. I will decide which version suits the kit the best during prototype assembly. Also, the pistons in the photo don't represent a complete set. On the far right piston, there will be 3 of those included with each kit.
There will be over 2 dozen parts in this remastered kit coming by the end of APRIL 2011.
I have been working tirelessly for 3 weeks on this remaster. Below are a few photos showing progress:
