Rebellion and Hiya Toys have announced a lines of both four-inch and six-inch articulated figures based on the world of Judge Dredd, a brand new range of fully possible figures that will draw on more than four decades of ground-breaking comics set in the world of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra back in 1977.
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.
Established in 2009, Hiya Toys focus on creative design, specialising in high-qualified collectible toys, with ranges based on Planet of the Apes, Alien, Predator and DC Comics’ INJUSTICE 2 video game already in their catalogue. Recent releases include an Alien Warrior from the Alien franchise.
