New Judge Dredd action figure line to launch in 2022 (https://2000ad.com/news/new-judge-dredd-action-figure-line-to-launch-in-2022/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=new-judge-dredd-action-figure-line-to-launch-in-2022)

He’s the the ultimate lawman of the future at any size – Judge Dredd is heading up a brand new line of action figures in 2022!

Rebellion and Hiya Toys are proud to announce a new line of four-inch and six-inch articulated figures based on the world of Judge Dredd, from the pages of the bestselling comic British comic, 2000 AD!

Hitting stores in time for Judge Dredd’s 45th anniversary in March, this brand new range of fully possible figures draw on more than four decades of ground-breaking comic books set in the world of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1977.

(https://2000ad.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/CPX-23-scaled.jpg)

The new collaboration begins with two 1:18 scale, four inch PVC action figures – the legendary lawman of the future, Judge Dredd, and his ultimate foe – the superfiend, Judge Death!

One of the world’s most famous comic book characters, Judge Dredd has been patrolling the mean streets of Mega-City for forty-five years and this dynamic and fully poseable figure of perfectly captures his iconic look, drawing on the artwork of legendary artists such as Carlos Ezquerra, Mick McMahon, Brian Bolland, Cliff Robinson and more!

With 19 points of articulation, he comes with shoulder and joint pads, chain and badge of office, boot holster, utility belt, and imposing helmet. He also comes to with trademark Lawgiver gun, which also fits into the holster on his boot, and Daystick club accessories.

Hailing from another dimension, Judge Death is the undead mass murderer who has declared that all life is a crime! Based on the iconic character design and art by co-creator Brian Bolland, as well as the work of artists Cliff Robinson and Garry Leach, the Judge Death figure comes with 18 point of articulation and a gruesome human heart accessory!

(https://2000ad.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/CPX-17.jpg)

Available to order from retailers and to trade from this month, and releasing in March 2022, both will come shipped in an attractive protective cardboard window box.

Dredd and Death will be followed in the spring by 1:18 figures of Death’s compatriots in carnage, the terror-inducing Judge Fear, in April (available to order from December) and the lord of decay, Judge Mortis, in May (available to order from January).

And no Judge is complete with his fully-armed ride – Judge Dredd’s iconic motorbike, the Lawmaster, will be available as a set to order from March and hit shelves in July.

In June, Hiya will launch the 1:12 (six-inch) line with Judge Dredd (available to order from February), Judge Death in August (available to order from April), Judge Fear in September (available to order from May) and Judge Mortis in October (available to order from June).

Jason Kinglsey OBE, CEO of Rebellion, said: “The fans have been clamouring for new action figures based on the incredible world created by Wagner and Ezquerra, so we’re delighted to be able to announce our partnership with Hiya Toys in time for 2000 AD and Judge Dredd’s forty-fifth anniversaries. Hiya Toys have a great track record for quality and the designs for these figures have blown us away, they look faithful to the comics and with great little details that show how much care and attention has even poured into them. There are so many amazing characters to choose from in this world, we can’t wait to see what’s next!’”

Looking at their (Hiya Toyus) other ranges you'll be able to have 4 inch Dredd vs Alien Vs Predator vs Robo-cop battle for around 9some variation) £20 a pop.

Can't see any current 6 inch figures but not had time to search too widely.

Looks like a very good range judging by that link, and much cheaper than I expected, especially with all that articulation. Put me in the "very interested" column.

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. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

Dredd looks bad to me - not sure if it's the angle of the picture but his whole head seems totally off and I think he has more than a whiff of Cal's fake Dredds about him. Death looks good though.

I like the look of the ED-209 on the site Colin linked!

I think £20 is roughly the same price as the Star Wars Black series right? so I’m not sure if that’s good or bad for these then? They look all right going by online comments of the other non Dredd figures but does that mean the 7inch ones will cost like £30-35?

Ueah, in a shoc twist from Dredd 2012, the helmet is visibly too small - rest looks OK though!

There's a 2014 Robocop remake action figure at the end of that link. How the feck is there a market for that?
: Re: New Judge Dredd action figure line to launch in 2022
: dweezil2 24 November, 2021, 08:51:38 PM
I'm an absolute sucker for an action figure, so these will be essential purchases for me.
Just hope that they last much longer than the 3A line of figures and we actually get a Judge Fire this time.

I picked up the original RoboCop figure and the Alien "big chap" from Hiya Toys and can confirm that they are superbly detailed for the size.
: Re: New Judge Dredd action figure line to launch in 2022
: Leigh S 24 November, 2021, 09:16:06 PM
One thing I find odd about this is the fact there are two scales - why would you not pick one and stick to it?

I suppose 3A also did that, but it still seems a bit odd - I'd rather get Dredd, Anderson, 4 Dark Judges, Mean and Fink, Hershey and a Sov Judge than Dredd and the 4 Dark Judges at two different scales?

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!’”

Press release from the House of Tharg.

https://2000ad.com/news/new-judge-dredd-action-figure-line-to-launch-in-2022/?utm_source=The+2000AD+Weekly+Thrill-Mail%21&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=dredd+action+figure+line&mc_cid=3f1cd7afd0&mc_eid=3dc8c74a1f

These teeny-weenies don't thrill me and the price for Ozzers will be ridiculous with shipping/taxes included.
Although I'm very much looking forward to see what the 6 inch series is like.
I see no mention of FIRE as a future release in either scale.
HIYA do a translucent/holo-camo PREDATOR figure, so could a major manufacturer release a convincing figure finally?

The promo pics of DREDD has a ridiculously small looking helmet, in my scale Nazi opinion.
Where HIYA confused? as the boots are supposed to be one size smaller as per THE LAW OF MORPH.

"Dredd and Death will be followed in the spring by 1:18 figures of Death’s compatriots in carnage, the terror-inducing Judge Fear, in April (available to order from December) and the lord of decay, Judge Mortis"

Translation - 3A couldn't figure out Judge Fire and neither can we.
: Re: New Judge Dredd action figure line to launch in 2022
: Dash Decent 25 November, 2021, 03:43:44 AM
I agree with the helmet comments - it makes Dredd's head look incredibly narrow, like it has been shoehorned into something way too small.  It needs to be bigger.  His lower face/neck look old and tense rather than gritty or grumpy, but I'll let that pass.  The boots look too large in the toe - like the stylised 'clown shoe' look McMahon gives them these days.  Nice to see the classic Mk 1 Lawgiver.  I wonder if we'll get an alternative Lawgiver (Mk III would be a first).

I understand why the first figure has to be Dredd, and I even understand Death being next.  But Dredd, Death, Mortis, Fire, and the Lawmaster already came out under 3A.  (It almost looks like Hiya are cribbing from those guys.  Let's see if the Lawmaster is the original boxy type).  Something like Dredd, Death, Sov Judge, Captain Skank, Chopper (with surfboard) would give Dredd some different 'playtime enemies' to come up against, and incentivise sales.  If they were willing to use a bit more plastic, how about a Fatty with bellywheel, a Mechanismo and Trapper Hag?  Mechanismo would be a good one because, while there can be only one Dredd*, building up a unit of Mechanismos is perfectly reasonable 'in-universe'.  (Likewise, Sov Judges.)  The Judge Child would be another good one (saving some plastic this time!) as would Mean Machine.

So far, I'm not likely to buy yet another Death, Mortis or Fear.  Some distinctive, famous enemies and some figures that we could buy multiples of (generic street Judges, etc) would get sales from me.

And Tharg, please listen - classic ROGUE TROOPER!

* Apart from all the clones.

Companies make what sells. Dredd and Death are the key characters. The other Dark Judges re well known and visually appealing. Captain Skank is a blip on the radar.

As for the sculpts, Death looks great. Dredd mostly does. I agree that the helmet is far too small, but I guess that’s comic accurate. (I remember everyone griping about the Dredd movie helmet, even though that one was as a helmet would actually be in the real world, if someone’s head were to actually fit inside it.)

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 👍🏻😁

Hiya Toys
Official site has DREDD and DEATH both listed at $19.99US which is around £15, but it's not clear if that includes shipping fee or not.
Brit-Cit gubmint/customs is similar to OZ, so both will screw you with extra's for taxes/duty at the border anyway.

That is the usual case with some of these Chinese manufacturers, although ThreeA's 2000AD lines pricing was International Shipping included from Honkers, which a few others also do.
I couldn't find any Shipping information on the HIYA site and the pre-order list price isn't indicated as RRP plus Shipping, so wrote I'm unsure.
I really appreciate your input as you are dead certain, so care to share the link with HIYA's Shipping Policy with pricing, if ordering directly from them?

I accept your gracious apology and very big of you to reply.
On probably the most friendly Forum on the 'net, I took offence at the condescending post directed at me, when I knew for certain it was formed in ignorance of the "direct to manufacturer" pre-ordering policies.

Some of my direct to Manufacturer orders in the past decade.
HIYA TOYS first ever series, 6 figure WWII set pre-ordered, Int Shipping included.
Mezco DREDD and LAWMASTER, Shipping Included in pre-order price.
Sideshow Collectibles (Yankee spelling) 1/6 Punisher, pre-order with shipping included.
ThreeA, many 1/12 Dreddverse figures (NO JUDGE FIRE though) and one 1/6 DREDD, but they lied and called it "FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING" not "International Shipping Included in the purchase price", as it truly is.
From experience, ALL retailers add shipping (fairly) as an extra charge.
No harm, no foul.

FIRE and GIANT do look very good. Kudos to HIYA for having the nuts to go where no other manufacturer has gone before, beyond the standard DREDD and DEATH releases every previous action figure company has done. Seeing as HIYA seem happy to branch out, here's hoping a MEAN MACHINE could be possible in 6 inch at a later date.

Although the 4 inch scale is a bit too small for me being a 1/6 and 1/12 collector. Holding out for the teased 6 inch line (most likely 2032 release).

Now we’re talking - those both look good now it’s just the long wait till release- hope the world is still here by then 😪

Next releases will be Orlok along with a Sov Judge vs Block Mania rioter twin-pack :D

Fantastic!  I am so pleased that Hiya are making me eat me words.  SO pleased tp see them developing the line.  The final Dark Judge!  A different Judge!  Brilliant.  Now we need a couple more 'regular' (non-supernatural) enemies for Dredd and Giant to face off against - Mean Machine, a Sov Judge, Chopper...

Oh!  And another great thing about having Giant, it means we can get two Lawmasters to have both Dredd and Giant on patrol together.  (And extra Lawmaster sales for Hiya can't hurt either).

I love action figures and I’m tempted. I have the 3a versions of Dredd*, Mortis and Fear already at a slightly bigger scale, so… think I should pass on those but… again tempted. They’re very nicely detailed, aren they?

I hope to get the larger version of Death when he becomes available, since I missed him with 3a and I think he’ll scale best with the 3a figures. (It seems a strange choice to me to have two scales of figures only an inch apart. 3a had two different scales, too, but they were far more extreme.)

Fire and Giant though, will they do the 6 inch versions of these? I’m not convinced since they are more niche characters. I will likely order these.

Last I checked , Giant wasn’t available at the FP shop (US Big Bad Toy Store had both. And they’re charging the same amount in dollars as we pay in pounds. Grrr. ) but hopefully he’ll turn up at some point.

*Amd the Mezco version of him. Both rather different but equally great versions in my view. I forked oh for the two lawgivers too.

I got FP mixed up with Zavvi there. And I see giant is available now.  https://www.zavvi.com/merch-action-figures/hiya-toys-judge-dredd-exquisite-mini-1-18-scale-figure-judge-giant/13717190.html?rctxt=default (https://www.zavvi.com/merch-action-figures/hiya-toys-judge-dredd-exquisite-mini-1-18-scale-figure-judge-giant/13717190.html?rctxt=default)Looks like his lawgiver is set to boomerang shot mode, though. ;-)

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.

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.

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."

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

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.
