Clearly gearing up for the Dredd/Scooby Doo time travel crossover.

Dredd: Drokk! Mutant talking dog!

*Dredd shoots Scooby*

Shaggy: Not cool, man!

Dredd: You’re under arrest for terrible dress sense and incitement to make citizens think things were better in the old days, when they clearly weren't. 50 years, creep!

Every time you wipe Red Razors from your memory, it somehow worms its way back. Dang it.

Got my stuff today - took about a week.

I got the Prog 513 cover mug and it's OK - just the cover produced twice on a plain white mug. Not bad for £7.99 but no innovation involved. If it wasn't for the licence I could have made this myself using one of those 'upload your photo mug' sites that you often get cheap deals on.

I also got the Logo Cliff Robinson card holder for my season ticket. This is better in design terms with the reverse having the full size JUDGE DREDD logo. I don't think it's worth £2.99 but decent quality, although quite basic. Will probably last this season but not next.
