If tyhey are ging to go direct from a piece of art, I'd love to see the cover of the 1979(?) Summer Special for McM... but anything will be a must buy!

I saw a sneaky peek of the advert at LSCC and freaked! That's one of my all time favourite McMahon Dredds there. A definite buy for me!



Thank you Planet Replicas!

I think the idea was to announce it (or sneak previewing what they're doing) in the Free Comic Book Day prog, which is why it isn't on their website.

My understanding is that they're going to be creating the image shown as a statue.

Though personally I'd like them to put some joints in it and also make an action figure  ;)

I don't normally buy statues but I really want these. It's a great idea. This is the reason I'm still freelancing for a British newspaper: so I have some British pounds stashed away for a rainy (thrill-powered) day!

I cannot wait to buy these.

The ad says "Find out more about this stunning range by visiting www.planetreplicas.com", which is pretty clear.

Perhaps it's just because it's the weekend and we'll see something on Monday.  Otherwise it's rather odd to expressly direct people to your website for information and then leave them to draw a blank when they get there.

It's a fantastic idea.  I'm looking forward to seeing an Ezquerra Dredd, Bolland Dredd, etc etc!

They have been sneaking bits of the 3D base model on their newsletter.

E.g.

Yes, I noticed in the last one they said the first prototype would go on show at Comic Con.  It seems a bit contradictory to the ad in the FCBD prog, which says you can see details on their website as of now.  Perhaps the dates slipped, but it does seem their marketing effort is a little confused.

As someone online is fond of saying - Oh myyy!

But kudos to PR for choosing to kick off proceedings with a 'McMahon'.

An 'Ezquerra' circa the Apocalypse War, would be just as awesome - and desirable, but more than happy with this one.

It's an interesting point - what's more marketable - a b/w model or something coloured up, and if so do you go with the yellow/gold elbow/knee pads of that era, or stick with the green ones?

I always thought the Batman Black & White Mignola statue did a great job of 3D-ising his iconic chunky 2D style



So it can be done, can't wait to see it!
