My main issue with the prog is that I don't like them as physical objects...
Good News! You can now buy the prog in a digital, non-physical, format. And, as a reward from the benevolent Mighty One for not participating in the weekly felling of the Earth's tree population, a digital subscription is cheaper than the print edition. :D

Nothing I could do would make the shield sit in the right position, so I attached a small metal washer to Dredd's chest under his suit (just using a small piece of blu tack) in the correct position - sorted, badge attaches to that.

Great figure 3a - hope for more.

Great suggestion SIP'ster, thanks for the idea.
Walking into the "Collector Room", was enough vibration to upset the Shields position.
With some double-sided tape on a metal washer, placed under the "leathers" = PERFECT now!!.

If the ANDERSON rumours are true, should be very nice.
I pray to Grud Almighty it will be a "Debbie Harry" style, Bolland 1/6th.
If it's "3A female" long legs and enormous "parts" (TK Queeny), I'm out.

I also assume it won't have the spin off Savage story (Disaster was it?) where he drove around flooded Britain in a DUKW.

It’s called Disaster 1990. It was reprinted in a floppy a couple of years ago. Not that that precludes it from appearing in the Ultimate Collection. There is something else that might though - which is it wasn’t very good. (IMO).

I guess now we know why CBS weren't too worried about The Orville - Fox have done what they usually do and the show's new (and presumably temporary) timeslot saw the ratings take a nosedive.  I guess we can stick a fork in it now, which is a shame even if I just can't unsee Star Trek when they're sitting in the ready room jawing away about a clash of cultures that can only be resolved by returning to the aliens' home planet and having a tribunal because yes episode 3 is one of those, but it's... uh... actually pretty good?  It's a thing about gender norms being surgically enforced by an all-male species and is surprisingly earnest for something that opens with a dick joke, but those looking for a TNG-scented sci-fi comfort blanket need look no further for something to cuddle.

It has already been established in the Zenith stories that superheroes do age. Red Dragon in Phase One being a prime example.

Aye, but Siadwell''s an alkie. Someone who didn't know better might (mistakenly) assume he'd just let himself go. Ruby Fox (Voltage) is a more clear cut example, since the reversal of her age is an important plot point.*

The Zenith text piece is credited to Martin Howe**, the author of Flying High, one of the books on St John's night stand when he's visited by Lux in Phase II (595).


* When she becomes a Lloigor (632) - the other former members of Cloud 9 are horrible and beardy until they assume Lloigor form too. St John not only ages, he starts to look like Tony Blair (Zzzenith.com) - time is a cruel mistress

I'm surprised that there seems to be none of the future sports like Harlem Heroes/Inferno or Mean Streets.

Future sport has always been the least popular strip category in 2000AD since forever.

I must admit that I did like Harlem Heroes, which I had initially got in the Extreme Edition.  I was eager to read Inferno, even though some of the national stereotypes in Heroes were a bit....over the top.

Inferno just didn't seem as good a read, and I remember Mean Streets, but if it wasn't reprinted I wouldn't be bothered as I wasn't a fan (no pun intended) at the time.

Thanks to everyone who replied to my post, I am certainly relieved to hear this feedback. I'm not on facebook so I won't have that option but in the (unlikely) event of an error I won't have to worry needlessly.
