JUDGE DREDD on LAWMASTER DIORAMA
If there is one lawman keeping Mega-City One in order, It’s Joseph Dredd. Charging through the gangs of mutants on his Lawmaster motorbike, he will uphold the code of justice– through violent means if necessary!
This massive diorama measures 24″ (61cm) long and is posed mid-action with deadly quadruple cannons ready to clear a path through mutant ne’erdowells. The fine detailing matches 2000AD’s source art so perfectly, you will swear it jumped right from the comic page. The icing on the Dredd cake is the real-life LED lighting effects, sure to illuminate any collector’s display room.
Limited to ONLY 250 PCS WORLDWIDE, this is destined to be a highly sought after collectible.

IMPORTANT PAYMENT AND SHIPPING UPDATES BELOW
As you can see many items have had serious delays. For this we apologize. Making hand crafted collectibles in low edition sizes often becomes trickier than we expect and when one item slows the production line down, it affects all of them.
The biggest issue has been getting the LEDs in the Skeletor Bust to glow like fire behind his skull and the find a way to package him so our international customers pay as little freight as possible. This has caused a massive delay but we are pleased to say all the problems have been worked out and he is well into production.
However, because of the unusually long delay we will be offering everyone who pre-ordered a Skeletor Bust before June 1st 2014 a $20 gift certificate on a future pre-order. Please note this cannot be used on existing pre-orders. To cash in your gift certificate, next time you pre-order an item send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you have a Skeletor Bust on order and we will refund you $20.
Beastman and Dhalsim customers. We apologize for the shipping delay. The collectibles have been finished since early September but with Christmas right around the corner the big companies have had all the spaces on the shipping containers booked up. We finally got a space this past week after over a month of trying. So we expect both Beastman and Dhalsim to be hitting our warehouse end of November.
We will be sending out emails asking for final payments first week of November. Thanks for being so patient !
