He's a fairly standard scale 1/6 body. I've had the figure  stripped down to the suit, but didn't go as far to fully remove the leathers as had no need to......but I think he would be relatively easy to swap out. Hand peg width is similar to hot toys, so don't think you'd need to do any drilling. His neck is part of the main torso (not seperate) with an internal neck joint. When I've modded these kind of bodies previously (been doing a lot of work on a range of 1/6 Indy figures recently) I've found that the most cost efficient suitable replacement  (if you don't want to shell out on a true type body) is the ZC Toys narrow shoulder muscular body (just search for that on ebay).  Good luck!

Anyway, Dredd is extremely happy alongside Chris and Harrison. Happy days.

It's a rubberised chest, not like the 1/12, so cutting him up will be a bit of a trauma. If you are going down that route I would just swap the body out entirely.

The body used on this figure is leaps and bounds ahead of the 1/12 version. Fully pose able with a nice smooth ratchet joint system. I was trying to pose my 1/12 Dredd next to him yesterday and his legs were wobbling all over the place.

So yes, poses well.

I'd say he was 90% Bolland, with a mixture of Greg Staples and Cliff Robinson thrown in for the last 10%. The shoulder pads are unmistakably 100% Bolland design though. The look of the various armor pieces and weapons are all very "Planet Replicas".

The quality is excellent on this figure. It leaves the 1/12 version that 3a did miles behind in the dust. Very solid body with nice ratchet joints and sturdy wrist pegs, just a massive improvement all round. I am very impressed with him.

He's absolutely fantastic.
There have been quality issues with the 1/12 figures, but this guy is absolutely top notch. Really solid stuff.



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.

Yes, Al Pacino was in Jack and Jill

So very confused now, 'cos that was pretty funny.

And don't forget Scent Of A Woman!
Scent Of A Turd, more like!
How Pacino bagged an Oscar for this and not Carlito's Way is just one of life's unfathomable mysteries!

Tsk, how can you not like scent of a woman?

It's absolute mawkish drivel and Pacino hams it unbearably!

Nah, it's great. Nothing wrong with a bit of sentiment.

There is when it's so poorly executed, but each to their own.  ;)

To be fair, it's sort of widely regarded as being a good film, so don't feel the need to fight my corner too hard here.

But as you say, each to their own.

I was a bit frustrated at first, the magnetic Badge would sit where it wanted.
With a gentle touch, you can get it to "sit in the right position".
I think ThreeA have put a fair bit of Engineering into big Dredd.
He really is superior to little Dredd.
I still love 'em both tho'.

I'm certain he is superior.....except for the helmet. I'm hoping it will grow on me in person, but that helmet choice is an unfortunate one for my tastes.

Just wish they had followed suit with the whole Bolland theme. Everything is pretty much Bolland (with a Mcmahon Lawgiver mk1), but then they went a random direction with the headsculpt and helmet. I prefer the straighter sides of a Bolland helmet, or the Steve Dillon style helmet they went with on the 1/12.

He still looks solid, and it's great to have a 1/6 comic Dredd. I have a spare art figures head and helmet, and I may need to experiment on this one.

Fantastic. I thought I may need to mod it, but that looks good. Cheers sir!

Wait, you think the "right" place is halfway up his armpit so it's partially covered by the shoulder pad?
Weird - I think the original was correct - you should be able to see the whole badge, surely.

I think you are misunderstanding me, I just wanted to know whether the badge was limited to the one, incorrect spot that it appeared to be on all of the other pictures and videos that I have seen....rest assured that I am well aware of where Dredd's shield should be.

This picture confirmed that it could be relocated.

The shoulder pad in the "armpit" picture is also completely incorrect, but Steven's picture further up the page shows that it can be moved to the correct place, so when that is moved up, I suspect that the armpit badge is pretty close to where it should be.

Next up, I'm wondering if I can swap the neck and head out for the art figures Dredd......find out tomorrow I guess.

Ooof, I thought Skyfall was appalling, especially the ludicrous final act (from the moment James and M go on a road trip it feels like ghastly Bond fan fiction, then Home Alone 6, and it only gets worse as it goes on.  By the end I was hoping Jaws would show up dressed as a vicar and at least give us a chuckle).  Casino and Quantum, on the other hand, I really liked.  Now you have me intrigued enough to bother to track down Spectre.

Can wholeheartedly agree with you there, baffled by the love Sky fall gets.

Can his badge go in the correct place? All the reviews and pictures I've seen seem to indicate that it can't.
