Thanks, buddy. Btw did anyone else's Dredd smell like an auto parts store when they opened theirs? Just curious because mine reeked of auto paints for some reason. :crazy: :sick:

That's the glorious ThreeA smell. One of the best things about buying ThreeA stuff!

I only have one ThreeA piece (Their Dredd figure) and I noticed a very noticeable smell when I freed him from the confines of the packaging. For me, I guess it was more a 'leather' smell, than a auto parts store.

Not unpleasant, but glad it's died off now,  ;)

Yeah, I think all my 3a figures have a  bit of a whiff to them. Not particularly overpowering, taking up the corner of the room, or anything like that, though, but it's quite distinct.

High end/low production toys do have a particular stink !! Not necessarily expensive ones but hand painted. I absolutely love it, open the clam shell and breathe it in, its the smell of victory !  :D

This was in the latest edition of Previews. Good to see they are going with the proper uniform colour.

2nd Quarter 2017 ends in just over 9 weeks, fingers crossed we see 1:6th Dredd in there without any delays. I'm really looking forward to seeing what he can do, not bought anything that scale in a good few years. I only have a couple of 1:6th Hot Toys left (Marvel) I would have loved to have had Joe squaring off against one of the Terminators but I sold them when I decided against collecting in that scale. Only 2000ad could have got me back into it again  :D

I'd like to hear some news on upcoming 1:12th, Mortis was the last, ordered 14 months ago now. Hardly keeping the momentum going. I'm all for collecting both scales but I didnt want to see 1:6th affect the release schedule of 1:12th which it certainly seems to have done. No 1:12th pre-orders since the first 1:16th Dredd was released.

I hear ya, Toon. The last time I bought something in the 1/6th scale was back in '06. So I'm hopeful the 1/6 Dredd is worth it. Can't wait to try the new ratchet joints on the figure.

And really don't mind 3A taking their time on 1/12 releases, easier on the 'ol wallet.  :lol:

Snap! I've also  been avoiding the 1/6 figures for the same reason. That and space. (The 1/12 figures seem just right in that regard.) The recent 1/6  Dredds have been very tempting though.
