Judge Dredd Bolland Poster for sale
« on: 06 December, 2017, 04:06:26 pm »
Hi All,
I haven't been here in a while. So sorry if this seems a bit mercenary.
I've got a copy of the huge and very rare Brian Bolland Judge Dredd poster from the 80s. It's about 5' tall.

If I've remembered right, it was only available in the old Forbidden Planet in Denmark St.
I have an eBay listing here. I'm asking £200 as that's what a couple of these have sold for recently but I'd do a deal here if any of you real fans want it. Please do read the listing for condition.

Sigh... If I had the money...

That said, I've always wanted to add another foot to the height of that poster and add some length to Dredd's legs.
He does look a bit... short  :-\

I've also got an extremely rare style guide from the 90s. It's chock full of stuff, but the main draw will be the seldom seen art by the maestro Cliff Robinson.

The listing's here. Again, please check out the listing for details and again, I'm asking for £200...
I'm very much open to offers from anyone here, and if I've met you in meat space, I'm likely to do a real deal for you.

Not my bag, but it is really nice.

It'd make a decent Turin Shroud for the missing-in-action Commando Forces.

Finally, I have a nice run of the "Judge Death Lives" story line.

Listing is here
I'm asking £65 for the set, but again, make me an offer here via PM and help me avoid eBay fees and I'll do a deal! All prices are inclusive of P&P (2nd Class signed for).

Just trying to raise some funds for Christmas. All offers appreciated, so don't be shy, I won't bite!

Sigh... If I had the money...

That said, I've always wanted to add another foot to the height of that poster and add some length to Dredd's legs.
He does look a bit... short  :-\
I think it's the body and shoulders that are stumpy... but I think he drew it at size, so it's a fairly impressive piece of work, it's fabulously detailed art.
Just look at the scan I took of the head:

I'd drop at least 10% to avoid eBay, fwiw.

I saw it (and the Judge Death poster) in Fantasy World in Stoke on Trent, so it wasn't an FB exclusive (of course, Fantasy World, or its successor finally became yet another Forbidden Planet, as seems to happen to most independent comic shop from the 1980s - ACE in Colchester also appears to have gone down that path).

Anyone interested if they were at least 15% cheaper?
£170 ovno (inc. P&P) for the poster.
£170 ovno (inc. P&P) for the style guide.
…and a bit more of a discount on the progs?
£50 ovno (inc. P&P)
