Judge Dredd figure from Mezco

At last, we have a Dredd action figure that is worthy of the character. Forget the minuscule amount of action figures that have gone before, this is it! Mezco have brought Judge Dredd into their ONE:12 series and what a start to what should be a pretty superb line. Most other characters are pretty simple in their design compared to Old Stony Face and Mezco have not skimped on the details on this figure, believe me!

At the moment there are three figures available:-

One:12 Collective - Judge Dredd
NYCC One:12 Collective - Judge Dredd Black and White Variant
Previews Exclusive One:12 Collective - Judge Dredd Cursed Earth Variant

There are also two Lawmaster sets heading our way, very soon.

If you want one, then just do a web search, as numerous places will have them but make sure you compare the prices and postage.

There won't be much writing, as the video tells you most of what you want to know and the pictures show the rest, especially the details.

First up, the short video. Now I filmed this in portrait, as if I did it in landscape, there would be two blank spaces either side of me anyway!


Now sit back and look at a few pictures. I won't be putting descriptions, as I think everyone will know what a boot looks like, or a side shot of Dredd.

Don't forget, click on the first picture and it will enlarge and then just scroll through them on screen.

All in all, this is a brilliant figure and shows what can be done when an artist from 2000 AD, who is a current Dredd one at that, is in on the design time. The artist in question is Ben Willsher and you can see his style written all over this beauty.

Mick McMahon Dredd statue - Planet Replicas Colour Test


At Thought Bubble 2014 (Comic convention in Leeds - England) Planet Replicas had their four Dredd statues on display from their upcoming Artists Collection. These were all the same statue by legendary Dredd artist Mick McMahon but they were done in 4 different finishes. The first was unpainted and the other three in distinct styles.

This is to see which the fans would like and over the weekend they listened to those eager fans as they told them which finish they would want on the finished statue. Obviously the Cellar would like to see all four but who knows at this current time which statue is the most liked!

Anyway, this post is gonna be picture heavy and please forgive my photos, I'm not a professional (as you'll soon see) but I think the variety of pictures that follow will give you an excellent idea of what the finishes look like.

The unpainted one is number one on the left, enjoy and don't forget, click on the pictures to enlarge them! Be warned my smiling face is shown in a few as I hold the statues up to show their scale.





I must add a mega thanks to Dan of Planet Replicas for allowing me to torture him at his stand as I kept gouing back for more pictures. Rest assured everyone, all four statues were on the table when I left the building!

One last thing, make sure you visit the site which is here PLANET REPLICAS and follow the twitter page for news, which is here PLANET REPLICAS TWITTER

Judge Dredd soap


Nothing much known about this extremely rare piece of Dredd merchandise. John Wagner contacted me to see if I would like it, along with a few other things and how on earth could I refuse an offer like that. A couple of years back, at Thought Bubble, it was handed over to be placed into the Cellar for safe keeping.
I just wish they had actually gone and pushed this out into the shops, as it's the finished product. Makes you wonder if there is a corner of a warehouse with a few boxes of these stockpiled and forgotten about!

As you will see from the photos, the only real damage is to the actual eagle itself but who cares, this is mega rare! By the way, the picture at the top of the blog is just to show how large the actual soap is!


Who knows, in the far future we may actually get something like this mass produced!
