A bit more from their FB page.

"Thanks for all the comments on the Statue Range!

Being 1/10th scale the price should be very fair for everyone.

We intend to do as many artists of Dredd as possible, alternating between releases of other great 2000 AD characters...

One other sweetener for everyone- A quantity of preorders made before release will end up with a Signed, Ltd Edition print of the statue artwork by the relevant artist too*

*Depending on Artists availability,naturally"

Lots of Dredd statues, nice! I'll have a row of those at the front of the display before you know it. Right, I'm off to look for some sort of stepped display thing now, so every character is seen, rather than just the heads of all those behind the front row.

Looking forward to seeing these! There's also a McMahon based (i think) Dredd statue/figure coming soon from Unbox, who did the Death plush. There's been a few teasers on their FB page.

To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

I like the idea of a McMahon statue in the classic big boots early-eighties styling but I would be even more interested in a skinny, small shoulder pads 1977-era Dredd.
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

Nice. It looks a little 'soft' to me - I was imaging a more chiselled, angular look, but maybe that's because it's still wip or due to the limitations of making something that works in 3d.

Absolutely desperate for this! I'm on my holidays in the first week of August so I hope I don't miss 'em!

That's a bit special isn't it. Doubt I'll be able to afford it (or justify the cost) but for those that can and do they have a beaut.

I'll take two.

I'll try and work out a way of putting joints in the other one to make an action figure  :D

I guess it depends on the popularity of the artist.

Dredd sells, but it would be nice to see a Carlos Strontium Dog - or if they continue with Dredd, maybe a 'moment in Dredd' would be cool.

An Apocalypse War era Dredd with a stub-gun after Carlos, or a sculpt of the Gaze into the fist of Dredd panel maybe? Flying fragments would be a bit tricky though.

Anyone got a rough idea as to what this may cost?
