Rebellion has teamed up with HIYA toys to launch a line of models in 2022 to celebrate Dredd’s 45th anniversary.
We’ve prototypes of Judge Dredd and Judge Death to show; they’ll be on order this month and available in March. Judge Fear joins in April, with pre-orders opening in December, and then Judge Mortis in May.
A Lawmaster will also join the range, with orders taken in March for a July delivery.
Dredd and Death are 1:18 scale PVC figures with 19 points of articulation (18 for Death), shoulder and joint pads, a badge, boost holster, belt and those iconic helmets.
Death is Dredd’s nemesis. If you’re not familiar with Judge Death, then it’s best summed up as an undead mass murderer from another dimension who has declared life itself to be a crime. The terror was created by Brian Bollan and expanded on by Cliff Robinson and Garry Leach. This one comes with a gruesome human heart bonus.
Jason Kinglsey OBE, CEO of Rebellion, told the press;
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!”
Internationally, the models will be available via Amazon, HIYA Toys own site and Diamond. A range of smaller retailers is confirmed for the US, North America and other territories.
