Trooper McFad can I be cheeky and share 2nd - what I have is neither 2000ad or X-Mas but I will make clear when I post why its very fitting - in the YNWA Household anyway for the calendar. So am I okay to share the slot?

You certainly can ti's the season to share  😀

(You can have it all yourself if you want and I'll take the 3rd ?)

Never participated in this before but l'd been  working on a couple of things in anticipation. So I can do the 1st & 2nd to give some breathing  space for others.
Do i just post on this thread  tomorrow or will  you create  a specific one?

Good question - I'm new to this but it seems to be tradition to have an advent calendar thread and then a comments thread - or am I getting mixed up with the art competitions?   I guess they're similar in many ways so it looks like I'll be starting two new threads tomorrow!

I'll reply to Colin's calendar adding your name...
Thanks

I've not seen anything along these lines suggested for this year, but wouldn't there normally be an announcement about the advent calendar by now?  'Lovely' Pete Wells is a bit busy this year (announced why on Facebook but I can't remember if it was for public consumption or not, so I won't go in to specifics here, but it's good news for Pete) so I can see why there hasn't been anything so far.


With nine hours until December it's a bit short notice (as opposed to the week or two usuall) but here's a list of numbers for people to reply and fill in with their names.  For myself I'll do what I did last year and post daily translations of 2000AD blurbs (so I won't put my name down on any particular day).

Announcements / Re: New Judge Dredd action figure line to launch in 2022

Companies make what sells.

I totally agree, but it's also true that consumers can only buy what's available.  (Like the old Ben Elton routine about dog food adverts - '"My dog woofs it up!" - well of course he does!  If he didn't he'd starve, seeing that's all he's got to eat!')

My sales graph for Rogue Trooper figures shows sales of zero units this year.  None at all.  That's got to at least be partly down to the fact there isn't a RT figure to buy.  Now, I'm not arguing they should put out Rogue Trooper instead of Dredd, but Mortis & Fire could easily be substituted for some other well-regarded and visually interesting enemies.  And even Judge Fish sold when it was available for sale.
Hence why I gave up waiting and started up mashing up model kits to create some of my favourite characters.
I’ve got plans for my own own articulated figures that I know will never get done as they may not sell in sufficient amounts. Hopefully they will be ready to share with the board in the new year 👍🏻😁

Reading the full press release from 2000AD and it’s not clear if the Lawmaster will be in both sizes and what’s included in the “set”
But the last line from Mr Kingsley is promising “There are so many amazing characters to choose from in this world, we can’t wait to see what’s next!’”

These look great and and will be purchasing. However I would love for them to expand into other ranges like  ABC warriors, anything in the Rogue universe and definitely something from SD. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

There's a lot of easter eggs / nods to things both real world and Dreddworld in the art - it's lovely.


Is anybody buying a hideous Dredd Christmas jumper?

Yes I’ve plumped for the Santa one and it arrived yesterday. Nice and cosy 😁

As for the Easter eggs in the Dredd story I would defo buy that “Heroes” hoodie if it was ever produced 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Only 6 episodes!

A second cloaked asteroid just struck my heart.

Hopefully this will be reflected in the quality on show. Being the final season no need for much character building just getting on with the story arc.
I don’t mind short seasons as long as it’s quality.
