not sure where people are finding fault.

Because it's ridiculously overlong.

There's simply no need for this film to have a running time approaching three hours. What was released in the cinema should have been the director's cut.

For me it absolutely flew by, and I would have been happy for it to have been even longer!

It was just so good.....not sure where people are finding fault. The original is a masterpiece of design, visuals, atmosphere and sound, but completely lacks in emotional connection and dialogue (for the most part). I feel like 2049 manages to tick those same positives but largely avoids the negatives.

Incredible film in my opinion.

Looks great - I'm excited at least!

Yup, can agree with all the Joe. The sound throughout the whole film I found quite brilliant. Going to see it again next week.

No, I don't particularly see Roy Batty as a complex character  to be honest. K in this was infinitely more so I thought.

It's better than a sequel to, what I consider a classic, has any right to be, but it's far from perfect.
Roger Deakins should rack up the awards for his director of photography role though if there's any justice in the world.
And spot the Dredd actor for extra brownie points!  :)

Yeah, going to have to completely disagree. I think it was pretty damned near perfect to be fair. Blade runner was a triumph of groundbreaking visuals, mood and futurism but as a narrative is fairly thin and emotionally disconnected. This was a better film.

The visuals are amongst the best I've ever seen, the sound was fantastic, the cast all brought their A game, it has some incredible scenes (in fact a LOT of incredible scenes) and the characters were more complex and interesting.  It was a better film than blade runner.

Saw it tonight and it was excellent.  Won't say any more as don't want to spoil it for others.

Also desperately sad to hear about Tom Petty. Got me through many a dismal accountancy exam. Rip.

Had the same email reply from CS Dash, it comes when it comes I guess, at least they were on the ball with the reply. Try to hide the fact its not there with the pose maybe, or have him cleaning it :) I wonder if the piece they supply will go on the shotgun or not, looks like it might force over  :o If not do we need a new shotgun altogether.

Leathers are wearing in nicely, soles of the boots look so good even with their dusty weathering. I think I need to try a Hot Toy flight stand or something next to try to get him running. Poor PCS Dredd has lost his base....again  :lol:



Hey toon, the shotgun slide just clips.over the pole, so wouldn't need a whole shotgun, just the piece.

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.
