Etsy seller with heaps of Dredd badges:

Looks like these might be cast using a Planet Replicas original?

Companies make what sells.

I totally agree, but it's also true that consumers can only buy what's available.  (Like the old Ben Elton routine about dog food adverts - '"My dog woofs it up!" - well of course he does!  If he didn't he'd starve, seeing that's all he's got to eat!')

My sales graph for Rogue Trooper figures shows sales of zero units this year.  None at all.  That's got to at least be partly down to the fact there isn't a RT figure to buy.  Now, I'm not arguing they should put out Rogue Trooper instead of Dredd, but Mortis & Fire could easily be substituted for some other well-regarded and visually interesting enemies.  And even Judge Fish sold when it was available for sale.

I agree with the helmet comments - it makes Dredd's head look incredibly narrow, like it has been shoehorned into something way too small.  It needs to be bigger.  His lower face/neck look old and tense rather than gritty or grumpy, but I'll let that pass.  The boots look too large in the toe - like the stylised 'clown shoe' look McMahon gives them these days.  Nice to see the classic Mk 1 Lawgiver.  I wonder if we'll get an alternative Lawgiver (Mk III would be a first).

I understand why the first figure has to be Dredd, and I even understand Death being next.  But Dredd, Death, Mortis, Fire, and the Lawmaster already came out under 3A.  (It almost looks like Hiya are cribbing from those guys.  Let's see if the Lawmaster is the original boxy type).  Something like Dredd, Death, Sov Judge, Captain Skank, Chopper (with surfboard) would give Dredd some different 'playtime enemies' to come up against, and incentivise sales.  If they were willing to use a bit more plastic, how about a Fatty with bellywheel, a Mechanismo and Trapper Hag?  Mechanismo would be a good one because, while there can be only one Dredd*, building up a unit of Mechanismos is perfectly reasonable 'in-universe'.  (Likewise, Sov Judges.)  The Judge Child would be another good one (saving some plastic this time!) as would Mean Machine.

So far, I'm not likely to buy yet another Death, Mortis or Fear.  Some distinctive, famous enemies and some figures that we could buy multiples of (generic street Judges, etc) would get sales from me.

And Tharg, please listen - classic ROGUE TROOPER!

* Apart from all the clones.

"Dredd and Death will be followed in the spring by 1:18 figures of Death’s compatriots in carnage, the terror-inducing Judge Fear, in April (available to order from December) and the lord of decay, Judge Mortis"

Translation - 3A couldn't figure out Judge Fire and neither can we.

Lawless Book Four: Boom Town - Paperback, 23rd June 2022

TEETHING TROUBLE!

Having narrowly avoided being wiped from the face of the planet by Munce, Inc., Badrock is now a thriving boom town, predicated on an uneasy peace between the Zhind, the settlers and the Mega-City One Justice Department. Designated a Free Town, the future's there for taking, and folks from all over the planet 43 Rega are flocking to Badrock to begin anew, all under the watchful, disapproving eye of the SJS. Many are hardworking, honest folk - but some are parasites, drawn to Badrock to find new ways of making a killing. And when a caravan of settlers is brutally slaughtered, it'll take all that Colonial Marshal Metta Lawson has to stop an outright war.

Dan Abnett (Aquaman, Guardians of the Galaxy) and Phil Winslade's (Howard the Duck, Wonder Woman) frontier epic Lawless continues in this fourth action packed volume, which includes the all singin', all dancin', Lawless the Musical!

"2000AD predicted the future" always reminds me of similar claims made about MAD magazine.  There's various inventions and trends they presented that likewise transitioned from joke to reality, such as Al Jaffee 'predicting' the automated spell check.  It was a sporadic theme in their letters page over many, many years.
