It's not even been officially announced by Rebellion, early days.

Duncan tweeted something along the lines of condensing a childhood favourite last year (I think), if it was that I imagine there's some kind of treatment at least.

I assume it's cheaper to have a painted actor but maybe a CGI Rogue would be better.

Are those the only two options? Would it not be possible to tweak the skin colour of a real actor as part of the digital grading process? (Genuinely curious, not being snarky.)

You could, depends on what's else in the background.

If any of the landscape shifts towards pinks/browns then they're going to shift colour as well - but if you're rotoscoping characters, not such a big deal.

Tried doing it to a degree on the short where makeup was wearing thin/off during stunts, but it tended to shift more than just him, and since there was only one instance of a regular human with pink skin, it might have just made it look like a blueish grade rather than him being blue.

I imagine it would just be makeup and any required digital touch ups - CGI reserved for armies. Could probably get quite a lot out of head mounting a camera for the southers and doing digital versions for the medium to background troops, since you're only seeing their face through a visor.

Best of luck to Duncan bringing it to the screen!

Revealed - or at least so heavily hinted at it may as well be...

I've ordered it, but not turned up yet.

The problem with a movie accurate Dredd helmet is that there are a ton of bootlegs out there.

Even stuff cast from the actual helmets.

Gunnar is a big prop to make, and, like Brainbiter not sure how many people are willing to have something that size around the house, but would have a Lawgiver.

Ah, it's the wrong product we're being supportive of then?

Supportive like this thread you mean?

There are plenty of half-finished series/plotlines littering the past few years not by John Smith.

I have some sympathy about getting someone in to finish one already started in IP, but handing over Devlin Waugh and Tyranny Rex?

Depends on the strip for me.

If a strip starts with a varied line-up then it works up to a point - multiple artists are having their input (see Dredd), plus not many artists could keep up with doing it day in day out anyway, so it's just a reality.

For those who have a stamp on it - Carlos on Strontium Dog, Ian on Robohunter, then I find another artist taking over hard going.

I believe Kingdom was held back for Richard's availability, so it seems to be preferred to hold back for certain strips.

And I'm not comfortable with the way John appears to have been treated either - I've been dipping in and out of the prog and megazine this year because I'm not really feeling it, and having that hanging over strips doesn't really encourage me to do so.

It may be a great strip, but hard to separate that from the circumstances.

Also in general with a couple of exceptions, having other writers take over characters doesn't have a great track record either.

OK, cheers - bit odd.

What's going on with the white frames around text?

I noticed it in the last (digital) prog on titles.

Thanks Chris,

Carlos' drawings vary a bit - there are some shots early on where the muzzle is pretty wide.

I think the lengthier MK1 tended to come from Brian and Ian (and I think Ian introduced the top magazine)

It's mainly because Carlos never adopted the MK2, but artists have their own variations anyway - Henry and Ben have flattened off the curved ammo dial for example.

Good to see that first 100 sold out straight away.

Yeah, they were also updated to be a better match for Book 1 of Nemesis - Torque is a bit spikier, less sleek - Terminator masks more like the Book 1 versions, also coloured rather than b/w.

The Rebellion Deviant Edition collects this version.
