Judge Death statue from Unbox Industries

Unbox Industries finally made their Judge Death available to buy on the 16th of December 2017 with the following advert on their site. By the way, it was a long wait from the initial knowledge knowing that this Dark Judge was coming, till we could pay for it.

'Unbox Industries once again join with 2000AD to expand upon their series of stunning sculptural interpretations based on the universe of Judge Dredd.
Several of the world's greatest graphic artists have interpreted Judge Death, but his first published appearance was in Prog 149 and illustrated by the legendary Brian Bolland.



Unbox based their interpretation on Bolland's judge Death from the 2000AD Postergraph featured in the "Judge Death Lives" storyline, one of the most memorable and disturbing illustrations from that era of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic. The figure stands at 13" high on a 1" base and is intensively detailed, using a combination of PVC and ABS materials. It's high-end production succeeds in pushing the envelop in the vinyl figure category, giving new meaning to the term "execution."
Packaged in a stunning box, the figure is a must for serious collectors.'

The price was $85, which at the time came to £66.07, which wasn't too bad, especially with the early birds getting free postage and packaging. So I placed my order and within a month it was delivered, which was impressive.

Lets's start with the video of everything before we go onto the pictures. It's quite short, so don't be afraid. I also mention that mine seems to have a slight lean, or does it!

Now for the obligatory photos and as always, click on the first to enlarge them into a slide show.

Again, Unbox have done a grand job (apart from that lean). Saying that, others have said that theirs doesn't lean, so maybe I am seeing it slightly different. Anyway, that doesn't distract from an excellent build at a fantastic price.

I look forward to seeing what they come up with next, will it be Anderson, or more Dark Judges, or how about a Mechanismo Judge.

PSI badge - Costume version by Planet Replicas

This badge from Planet Replicas is what all members of PSI Division wear at Justice Department, in Mega-City One. It doesn't have the Judges name, rather it shows that they are a member of PSI Div.

This badge is for display but also for wearing as part of your Judge cosplay due to it being so light. You could just add a bit of velcro to the back and place it where your normal badge on your uniform goes and then you won't get as sweaty at conventions, as you don't need to wear your helmet.

You can grab one for £30 from Planet Replicas by clicking on the link HERE!

Now follows the obligatory pictures of the badge.
Just click on the first one for the slideshow to open.

Judge Death statue by PCS Toys

This is the second statue from Pop Culture Shock Collectibles and it's Judge Dredd's most famous perp, JUDGE DEATH!
Death was designed by Brian Bolland but this statue is taken from a poster by Garry Leach and it's drokkin' stunning. Here's that very poster!

The info from PCS Toys about this statue is as follows:-

From Rebellion Interactive's series, 2000 AD, the leader of the Dark Judges, Judge Death comes from an alternative dimension where "the crimes is life, the sentence is death." This museum quality Polystone statue is depicted in epic 1:3 scale, standing 21" tall, strictly limited to 275 pieces worldwide.

The "Death Sentence Edition" includes three additional interchangeable pieces, a 'Grinning Head' an 'Impaled Judges Helmet' and an 'Impaled Angel Gang members head'. In addition, this statue comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. This is limited to 125 pieces worldwide

Here's a video of me showing off the Death Sentence Edition, so you can see all the extra bits.

Now for the obligatory pictures and as always, click on the first to open up the slideshow!

As said in the video, I wish his leathers were darker, or at least the same colour as the helmet. Apart from that and the gravestone, this is an excellent statue.
