James Wan is and always has been atrociously over represented in major motion horror pictures.

Probably that Saw legacy.  I never understood the love for that film.  I watched Saw 2 in its entirety (it is shit) but I couldn't make it through the first one.  So very boring.

Yep, put me down as someone who never got the appeal of the Saw movies either.
The more a delve into Wan's output, I come to the conclusion that it's an emperor's New clothes deal and he is in fact a bit of a hack.

I've fallen out of love with Croneberg of late, as his output has been patchy at best.
Let's hope that this is more of a return to form, harking back to his greats like Rabid and Videodrome

What an absolute dud. As if director, James Wan had briefly flicked through the A-Z of Giallo Horror and thought I can do that.
A woefully tedious police procedural subplot, gives way to a gore drenched, and mildly attention grabbing, batshit crazy final act that lacked any of the style and flair that someone like Argento would have brought to the material.
One to avoid.

Second year of proper work and a vague attempt to be an adult.
I can only imagine that I spent far too much time on the Commodore Amiga at the time and visiting local hostelries, while contemplating my future life choices! :lol:
Great year for gigs though and music in general.
Guns 'N Roses, Magnum, Ozzy, Soundgarden, King's X, Iron Maiden and Zeppelin were on the playlist at the time and, all these years later, still are!  :)

Whack that on a Blu-ray/4K Steelbook for the 10th anniversary next September and I shall definitely multiple dip!!!!  :)

Just bitten the bullet and splashed out on a RoboCop figure from Hiya Toys and I'm very happy with how detailed it is and the size, it bodes very well from a 2000AD line of figures.

Not sure what other 1/18 scale figures from other manufacturers come in at, but for an idea of scale, Robo was a couple of millimetres taller than a vintage Han Solo figure from Kenner. :thumbsup:

but I really hope they can go further with the line.  Even if it's just a Sov Judge in cloak to go against Dredd.

Pretty sure 3A cancelled the whole 2000AD series in JUL 2018 and later on in AUG 2019, Ash/3A company split from Kim/ThreeZero and then ceased business altogether.
Have read online rumours of a 3A rebirth using their licensed robot figures.
So like any new 1/12 releases from ReAction, Legendary Comic Book Heroes or Mezco, chances are slim to none.  :(

I see HIYA TOYS have pre-orders for 2 x 1/18th versions of the ARMORED PERSONNEL CARRIER (US/Meg spelling and $299 USD price = oww!) from the ALIENS movie.
They did produce a 1/18 RIPLEY'S LOADER (final scenes from ALIENS) that was $79.99 USD.
Very popular and sold out quickly but just like 3A collectors suffered, only available for high prices from scalpers online, if you did not pre-order early from HIYA to secure one.
Grud damned expensive hobby.
Which gives hope to HIYA potentially releasing Mek's or vehicles in the future.
Sentenoids? Hov-tanks? Manta's? or ALL of the original ABC WARRIORS including MekQuake? (if it was 3A they would be teasing with a prototype of JUSTICE-1 priced at $666 USD).
 :) :D ;) :P :o :lol:

edit: Fairly sure 3A re-visited MONGROL and RO-JAWS during the 1/12 re-launch, so add them to the list of released 2000AD fig's in 1/6 and 1/12.
Right at the end 3A also teased a re-scaling of THARG prototype, complete with polystyrene cups in 1/12 scale  :P

I was lucky enough to see the proposed 1/12 Tharg and Strontium Dog figures from 3A at the 2000AD Birthday bash in London and can concur that they looked fantastic!
There was also a head sculpt of Old One Eye/Flesh that Ashley Wood was sure would never see the light of day, but was done more for what could be.

Back to Hiya Toys, if they start doing Judge Dredd related vehicles, I really hope that they can wrestle the Land Raider rights away from Mattel:)

Here's the Hiya RoboCop review I mentioned. :thumbsup:

I watched someone review the recent RoboCop figure from Hiya on YouTube and have to say I was very impressed with the detail and the amount of articulation for something so diminutive.
Gives me hope for any 2000AD range.
The Alien and Predator figures look pretty cool too.
I've splashed out on previous Dredd/AD figures in the past, including the ones from ReAction, 3A even the Marvel Legends ones, but a new manufacturer of 2000AD merchandise on the scene is most welcome and worth supporting, especially if we want more in the future.  :)

I think if Hiya pitch these figures in line with their other lines at around £20, they'll have a better chance of shifting them.
The 3A range were great but probably out of reach, price wise, for most buyers, particularly casual ones.

It certainly looks like Judge Death's leg.

Fingers crossed Rogue Trooper will finally get a figure.

A Rogue Trooper action figure is long overdue, I couldn't agree more.
Would be nice to see some alternative 2000AD characters receive some love for a change rather than the Dreddverse usual suspects.
Saying that, would be great to see a Land Raider vehicle, if the license holders can wrestle the rights away from Mattel! :)

Well, of course, 2000AD celebrates an astonishing milestone next year, as it signals forty five years since its first publication.
Less significant maybe, but none the less impressive, it'll be ten years since the superb Dredd movie tore up cinema screens in 2012!!!!

Wow, can it really be that long ago since I sat eagerly awaiting, something I never expected to see if I'm perfectly honest, a second Judge Dredd movie at the cinema?'
And by grud, was I happier than a fattie in munce after the film had finished rolling, or screening at least, pretty much everything was digital by that stage!!!

Any hoo, I'm as curious as Old Stoney Face himself to see, a decade on, how or if Rebellion will mark this event.
Maybe a lovely hardback omnibus of all the spinoff Dredd movie comics, with a newly commissioned cover by concept artist of the film, Jock or even a brand new story set in the movieverse?
It would be really nice if Entertainment In Film in the UK gave us a decent physical release this time around too, preferably with newly commissioned art and in a Steelbook, like other territories have received, perhaps even a 4K release?

Regardless, I hope something is done to pay tribute to what I, and I'm sure others, consider to be a modern Sci-Fi/Action classic and up there with some of the very best in the genre.  :)

This news was shared with me recently and for someone interested by all things action figure related, particularly when in context to the 2000AD universe, this has me insanely excited!!!
Here's hoping that it lasts longer than the 3A range and that we get the complete Dark Judges this time around.
A Mean Machine finally and the rest of the Angel Gang would be great for starters too!!!
