hmmm So many pre-orders for a growing list of DreddWorlds iconic characters.
Yet Dredd and Death's release date of MARCH 2022 has sailed by with bugger all to show.
Mortis and Fear look to be delayed also, which were due for APRIL and MAY releases.
My local radback Zavvi now has 1/18th Dredd as a NOV 2022 release.

Vicious Klegg seemed to be a must buy for me, even in the mini-scale.
I really wanted to see some release pics by now to see the actual product and packaging before committing groats to anything.
The inevitable delays of the pre-ordering system associated with collectables "because covid", is frustrating as drokk.

I missed this teaser/pre-order for the Dredd vs Death exquisite mini figure that HIYA will be doing.

https://2000ad.com/news/coming-in-june-exclusive-dredd-vs-death-exquisite-mini-figure-from-hiya-toys/

Next from the pre-order sausage factory that is HIYA's release schedule.
The vehicle that all squaxx have been waiting on <drum roll>
Judge Dredd & Lawmaster MK II Set.

https://2000ad.com/news/judge-dredd-lawmaster-figure-set-announced-by-hiya-toys/

My internal narcissist chip likes to think HIYA droids read my previous whiney post on the release delays, because they have put out official news on the release reschedules. :) :) :)

Part of the Lawmaster press release includes the update:-
"Due to pressure on international shipping caused by the pandemic dates, the shipping dates for the new range have had to be set back. The new expected shipping dates are as follows:

    Judge Dredd – Sep 2022
    Judge Death – Sep 2022
    Judge Anderson – Sep 2022
    Klegg Mercenary – Sep 2022
    Judge Mortis – Oct 2022
    Judge Fire – Oct 2022
    Judge Hershey – Oct 2022
    Judge Fear – Nov 2022
    Judge Giant – Nov 2022"

Delays are the new normal. Supply chains are hosed. Shipping is hosed. It’s a wonder we’re getting anything around these days. Bear in mind a new Mac will take anything up to three months now – and Apple has the best supply chain management around.

As for these figures, nice to see the bike. Not sure which of these I’ll buy. The only one I don’t really like is Dredd, whose helmet looks way too small. (Fnarr, etc.) The Dark Judges look fab though, and that bike is chonky.

The Lawmaster looks great.  It's like the original design but a bit more curved and streamlined.

It's interesting they're bundling a Dredd figure with it.  I would've thought selling the bike only would allow fans to buy extra for Giant, Anderson and Hershey.  Unless they've had to rejig Dredd so he sits on the Lawmaster okay?

I love that her left shoulderpad has completely keeled over in the pose with the daystick.

https://previewsworld.com/Catalog/DEC218008

From the press release I think its a Previews exclusive, unless you can find a local retailer willing to special order.
"Inspired by the classic 2000 AD comics, this limited edition exquisite mini is available for comic book store and toy store retailers to order now through Diamond Distribution’s Previews magazine.

Featuring a black and white colour scheme that evokes the original comic pages, the fearsome Judge Death curls around Dredd’s legs, preventing his escape!

This 1/18 scale figure retails at £32.99/$39.99, measures approximately four inches tall, and is limited to only 3,000 pieces.

Final orders are due into Diamond by 30 May, with the figure in stores on 29 June."

Looks like there's a duplicate thread running on the same subject too.

I've used BBTS before on a few previous orders.

https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/205663

Can be expensive when international shipping and taxes are added but fast service and well protected during shipping.
I'm in the Radback though not  Brit-Cit, although we get screwed on import taxes just like you guys.

Anyone ordered from Zavvi this year within the last few months and actually got their orders?
I ordered a Star Wars black series figure that was in stock, took me a month+ to sort out get a refund, it was left at the picking process for 2 weeks & they just kept emailing we know there’s a delay we are working on it, understandable to me because of Covid with delays etc but when they eventually cancelled my order they said Thats they didn’t receive stock & that was the reason for cancellation, shame then that it was advertised in stock & not on back order or pre order.

On trust pilot when I looked up reviews, surely must’ve been a one off? but there was a lot of people stating that they hadn’t received orders & were still they assume understaffed since covid & now couldn’t cope with getting stock nor couldn’t cope delivering peoples orders. All hearsay of course

Completely understandable because of Covid BUT if they are that overwhelmed it would be easier not to overwhelm them with more orders & potential cancellations from myself so that they can clear their backlog from Christmas and therefore I ask

Is there anywhere else in the UK I can order these from? I have checked Amazon almost daily as the 2000ad article stated will available on Amazon but nothing for pre order in the UK

I've had problems with Zaavi in the past with them not being able to fulfill pre-orders.

I'm using https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/ - I think they ship world wide
