50 initial run and if enough demand may do another

Sold out in under 10 minutes.

200 quid caused me sufficient hesitation to lose out.

Yeah, we were pretty surprised how quickly they went.

The Carlos LG went in about 3-4 hours, we thought since it wasn't Dredd and it was twice the price, that the helmet might take as long if not longer.

I guess it being the third lawgiver and half the run outweighed those.

I'm sure Dan will do another run, considering how quickly these sold.

The best thing about these is they have exactly as many practical uses as Helm himself.

Missed out, mainly due to the better half say how much  :) but glad they sold out so quickly as hopefully they will do more none dredd stuff in the future

Is this one bulletproof too?!?

Crikey, that's grand news selling out chaps. PR merch is always a treat.

Wish I could sell as many comics that quickly!

Ho-ho...

Did a photoshoot with Lauren for some promo, although with the helmets selling like hot rations, it was more to have a bit of fun.

Got a few to photoshop up, but here's one... get your brolly, it's a HARD RAIN!
