News / Re: Hiya Toys Judge Dredd range?
« Last post by lincnashOZ on Today at 10:31:09 PM »
It is a concern and I won't commit to any pre-orders also (even though the teaser shots of any character are most tempting).

In my research I have found "wowHD e-tailer" which seem more a online DVD,BluRay,music supplier, but are offering most of the HIYA 2000AD series at RRP which includes "Regular Shipping" from the local warehouse. Pre-order and your CC is only charged at release(with HIYA who knows when that will be???) wowHD have warehouses on every major continent when I review the site.

Basically RRP which includes regular local shipping and no charge until the figure is actually ready for shipping out, seems like a very fair deal.
Has anyone had any ordering experience from this online retailer?

But in asking the forum that question, my caveat would be I wouldn't pre-order with wowHD anyway with all the HIYA teasers/pre-orders stacking up with no actual releases coming forward. My cynical side says each figures pre-order status doesn't reach HIYA's sales expectations, so they tease the next character hoping that promotes a boost in overall pre-orders and finances, before they are willing to commit to going forward with full series production.

Also regarding Promethea he's quoted "I've disowned it now".
Oh yeah, I re-read the article and noticed that. Oh well, too late to go back and edit my previous post now.

Selling it short though - because it skips the context:

Quote
“I’ve disowned it now [another casualty of his falling out with DC], but it was, and is, a very good work."

Taking just the first four words and highlighting them removes the context entirely. "I don't like ice cream immediately after eating 23 pancakes" isn't the same as "I don't like ice cream".

Highly unlikely that I'll be there this year, either...

(He's also keen on Rok of the Rovers, although I can't remember if he said he would do more of that but I wove surprised.)

John's position on Rok of the Reds is that he'd love to do some more if (and I quote) "I don't lose a load of money on it."

It's just a sad fact that the Kickstarter for Vol2 barely limped over the finish line, and the financials for that relied on a long tail of convention sales that didn't happen due to Covid. I know John's heart would love to do a lot more Rok, but there's literally no money in it.

To be fair, Watchmen subverted the genre and ridiculed its premise, portraying most of his superheroes as pathetic fantasists or sadists.

It's not comics fans per se. It's superhero fans.

He’s not even having a pop at superhero fans — he’s saying that superhero comics are an inherently juvenile genre (not actually a controversial statement) and that, in a time when fascism is on the March, its popularity may not be a good thing. To his credit, Moore has consistently said that he regrets dressing it up in a way that has made it seem like a ‘respectable’ adult genre. Liking kids’ stuff as a grown-up is fine, but Moore clearly regrets his part in making it acceptable to pretend that a genre that is foundationally based on adolescent power fantasies is ‘grown-up’ material.

Frank Miller is 65.

I spoke to him at a signing last month and he said he had not retired. There will be more Dredd, and he now intends to finish Spector after all (having originally decided not to when Carlos died). (He's also keen on Rok of the Rovers, although I can't remember if he said he would do more of that but I wove surprised.)

At some point you surely look at yourself and think you're at least partly at fault.

Said the male judge to the female rape victim.

My point being: getting fucked over a lot doesn't mean you're to blame for getting fucked over. You might just be getting fucked over a lot by fuckers who like to fuck over people. Fuck, that's a lot of fucks. I should have probably used a f*cking asterisk or something.
