The future’s greatest lawman needs a bike powerful enough to patrol the streets of the mega-city – and he’s got it with the forthcoming Judge Dredd figures from Hiya Toys…
Rebellion and Hiya Toys are proud to unveil the latest in the brand new range of 1:18 PVC action figures based on the world of Judge Dredd: the incredible Judge Dredd & Lawmaster MK II Set!
Due for release in October, this gorgeously crafted set includes a Judge Dredd poseable figure with 16 points of articulation and a MK II Lawmaster bike, based on the model from the pages of the bestselling comic British comic, 2000 AD!
Originally designed by Carlos Ezquerra when he created the look for Judge Dredd, the Lawmaster is the fearsome motorbike the Judges use to patrol the crime-ridden streets and mega-ways of Mega-City One. With its twin bike cannons it can blow away perps as its on-board computer and artificial intelligence provides everything from criminal records to voice scans and can even drive itself.
Designed by artist Mick McMahon, the MK II Lawmaster – also known as a ‘Quasar’ model or ‘Q-Bike’, was a specialised model based on the existing street version of the Lawmaster but which came with onboard A.I. and a powerful arsenal of weaponry. It debuted in the legendary epic storyline ‘The Cursed Earth’ where its formidable firepower helped Judge Dredd travel across a thousand miles of hell on Earth, and then returned for ‘The Hotdog Run’, drawn by Ron Smith, where Judges Dredd and Giant returned to the Cursed Earth with aparty of Justice Department cadets on their final training assessment. So impressive was this new design that,on Dredd’s recommendation, it became standard equipment for the city’s Judges.
The Judge Dredd & Lawmaster MK II Set is the next in the brand new range of fully poseable 1:18 figures announced in November 2021, drawing on more than four decades of ground-breaking comic books set in theworld of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1977.
