I don't really do statues and all that- but I have to say it looks pretty good (despite the belt buckle).

Nice.
Pffft...

I don't buy comic or movie Bric-a-brac but the only statue I'd ever be convinced to buy would be a quality Ezquerra style version of Dredd.

even at subs price, £120 is still out of my league. Too bad. Nice statue, although palette is way off from original...
Dawn of the first day. 72 hours remain.

Agree with Jonesy about the belt buckle, nice statue slightly let down by the pigeon.

I just followed that link and just before I put my card details in I had to stop as I saw no sign of a discount of 20% and I didn't want to risk it.
Anyone have any idea how the 20% is taken off.

Cheers  John

Shouldnâ??t deaths arms be pinned to the floor by his unfeasibly large elbow pads? In fact they are so large I almost didnâ??t notice the belt buckle. And Dredds helmet is a bit rubbish as well. However the composition is actually really good.
Tweaks final score: 4/10 at first glance, it looks pretty cool but is not good enough to get me to buy.
Why not take a leaf out of Tirmight replicas book and base the piece on work by artistsâ?? like Steve Dillon, Carlos Ezquerra, Brian Bolland, Cliff Robinson and Colin MacNeil. That way we might buy them.

4/10?  I think that's a bit harsh.  Personally, I thought the helmet was great.

CF two versions on the site $250 and $299 I went for the 250 one (with discount?) and got a mail back saying they where away until 13th September so suggest no one bothers to do anything till at least then.

It just looks like that action figure thing as if Dredds got a bit of a two story brain going on

Its not like the statues awful it is trying to capture the spirt of this iconic Bolland Picture, which is good. BUT why not just be true to the original?

It's actually inspired by Greg Staples version, which was inspired by the Bolland version

I like it a lot- but not for that kind of money

It's based on art by Greg Staples, isn't it?
