ThreeA 2000AD Judge Dredd Figure Line Review

Judge Dredd and the Dark Judges
by ThreeA
There are many toy companies that produce great figures and maybe don't get the recognition they deserve.  I believe ThreeA is a company that falls into that category, but this is all going to quickly change.  They have created a Dredd line that makes a comic book fan like me really happy.  I recently purchased their Dredd, Death, Mortis, Fear, and RoboHunter figures and was pleasantly surprised with the quality and detail they show. With no exception, ThreeA Lawmaster bike is also a magnificent piece they have created for the Dredd line


Pros:
  • Highly detailed figure portraits 
  • Articulation on the head, torso, arms, legs, elbows and wrists
  • Clothing on the figures are cloth fabric and fit well
  • Each figure has their own distinct look that highly resembles the Judge Dredd comic
  • Excellent paint apps all over each figure
  • Detailed belts and armor on each figure is very unique
  • Lawmaster well made and very detailed with light up features to capture that exact comic look
Cons:
  • Wrist joint pegs are weak and can easily break if you are not careful
  • Some poses are hard to keep as the figures weight can be a little uneven
  • Figures do not come in resealable packaging which isn't collector friendly
Packaging:
The packaging used for ThreeA's 1/12 figures is a standard very thick backer card with figure bubble in front.  Each figure does include unique art that was done specifically for the figures.  The heavy card stock back is so nice it was hard for me to cut the bubble off each figure to keep it clean. A lot of toy companies try different packaging but the classic look of just a backer card and figure is actually really cool just not resealable.  The Lawmaster comes in the same black and white look but in a small box holding the bike.  The art truly stands out for every ThreeA piece I own! 
Figures:
So many companies are trying to throw their hat into the toy making business, and Ashley Wood ThreeA has actually been making figures for longer than you think.  Their figure line goes back for about 6-7 years now and I just missed out on some of their initial hits.  I picked up one of their ABC Warriors Mongrol, and I was literally pissed I waited so long to buy this figure.  ThreeA makes high quality figures with paint schemes and added features that are hard to over look.

I currently have 7 total ThreeA figures and expect my collection to keep growing with some of the future announcements they have made.  If you are a fan of the 2000AD universe then you will be happy to know they are expanding their line to include characters like Johnny Alpha and Judge Fire! 
Overall:
I am really happy with the time and investment I have recently made researching ThreeA, Ashley Wood, and the items they are providing to collectors.  I am a huge fan of Judge Dredd, and the 2000AD universe and frankly beyond Mezco we haven't seen much quality product from other toy companies.  The figures are well made, detailed, articulated, and just a ton of fun to play with a pose just like my memories of previous comic stories.  I really hope their future items really take off and they are able to bring us even more from the 2000AD Universe!

  1. Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works.

  2. I want them so badly too! I even started help writing college essays to gain some money for it. But I just started and can't save a lot of money from my salary. What a pity. And you're so lucky you have the whole line of those figures! By the way, how much does it costs? I want to count how much I need to save to buy them.
