I might need to order via USA site
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.

I war going to give the Lawmaster a miss since I have the 3a version but I couldn't resist.  While of a similar design this is actually a different.

I'm sure at the time of release the 3A peeps said they were going for a Bolland '81 Annual feel, which they nailed in 1/12 scale.

In the blurb of the HIYA press release, it quotes they are aiming for a McMahon Cursed Earth "Q-bike" version.

Preorder pics check out for the 1/18 version <Borat voice> Nice!
Here's hoping a 1/12 version see's the light of day, I would have to stretch the collector's budget.
 :D

Anyone got a link for pre ordering the dread vs death set

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 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"

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.

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
This Ozzers with Shane Warne Block.

Of course it doesn't! Shipping is added when you give them the shipping address. :)

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 scathing retort and apologise. :) I didn't realise there were online vendors where int. shipping was included in the sticker price.

:-)
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.
Have a Merry drokkin' Christmas from the sub-human muties of the OZ Radback!!!!

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.

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.

HIYA also has a pretty nifty looking DREDD ripoff Robocop's ED-209 with sound (??YOU HAVE 20 SECONDS TO COMPLY?? pew pew pew) for pre-order at $49.99 USD.

https://www.hiyatoys.com/hiya-toys-robocop-ed-209-1-18-scale-4-inch-acton-figure.html

If they can do him, then a HAMMERSTEIN should not be all that difficult.

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

if Hiya pitch these figures in line with their other lines at around £20

HIYA specialize in 1/18 scale figures, so you have to remember if this DEATH (obviously) or other figures ever see the light of day, they are in teeny tiny scale.
20 squid? oww!

1/6 scale is 12" tall, think vintage Action Man size or modern Hot Toys, Sideshow etc.
First series by 3A was 1/6 scale and consisted of THARG and 2 of the original Meknificent Seven MONGROL and RO-JAWS, then years later as a last gasp before close of business, 1/6 DREDD and APOCALYPSE WAR DREDD  :lol:.
Extremely expensive, so the 1/6 series was dropped in favour of "less expensive half size" 1/12 scale.
1/12 scale are 6" tall and is the size of the second series of 3A 2000AD figures (DEATH, ROBO-HUNTER, FISH, GRONK, DREDD, LAWMASTER, FEAR and MORTISSSssssss) or modern Mezco One12, Star Wars 'black' series, etc.
1/18 scale are 3.75" tall, like vintage Star Wars and Action Force/GI Joe or reboot modern Star wars.

About 10 years ago I purchased HIYA TOYS first ever set of 6 figures, WW2 German Infantry.




"Hans! someone bent my Schmeisser"  :lol:
The flexible plastic used made the figures and accessories all suffer from "droop" (bent rifles like 1970s Airfix soldiers).
In the quest for articulation to match bigger scales, the elbow/knee pins and hinges are very large and detract from the visual aspect of the figures.
But hey, they are a very poseable action figure if that's your thing.
I usually open and select one pose, then it sits on my shelves in the collection, never posed again.
Hopefully HIYA have made leaps and bounds since their first releases but I am interested in seeing what may be on offer from the house of Tharg.
It's just the itty-bitty size of the figures that would put me off.

I thought Orlok was dead, but there is definitely infiltration by Sov filth columnists on the board.
With Covid, Block Mania may be making a comeback.
