Dear Earthlets! Big news from 2000AD. Planet Replicas are going to be producing a line of official replicas based on the universes of 2000AD. No word yet on prices but I would expect they won’t be cheep as they are going to be high quality.
Award-winning British comic 2000 AD® is delighted to announce Planet Replicas has been granted a licence to produce replica props taken straight from the worlds of 2000 AD’s most famous characters — including Judge Dredd.
Soon fans of Dredd, Judge Anderson, Strontium Dog, Sláine, Rogue Trooper, ABC Warriors, Zombo and the likes of Shakara and Kingdom will be able to see their heroes brought to thrill-powered life with officially licensed products.
Initial items include keyrings and full-size replica judge badges, with judge helmets and replica weaponry following soon after. Future products include complete replica judge outfits – ideal for dispensing justice to CosPlay perps! – detailed character masks, as well as further 1:1 and smaller-scale character/prop replicas.
2000 AD is Britain’s longest running and most celebrated sci-fi comic, which has been at the cutting edge of contemporary pop culture since 1977. The 32 page weekly anthology is a multi-award winning cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy, infused with a mean streak of irony and wry black humour.
Created in 1977 by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, Judge Dredd is 2000 AD’s most famous character – a judge, jury and executioner all rolled into one who patrols the dystopian streets of Mega-City One atop his huge Lawmaster bike and dispenses violent justice with his Lawgiver sidearm.
Other hit characters include the mutant bounty hunters of Strontium Dog, gentleman zombie Zombo, alien assassin Shakara, robotic superteam the ABC Warriors, ancient barbarian Sláine and genetically modified soldier Rogue Trooper.

Over the years there have been a lot of these so called crossovers of various franchises but this one sounds like it could be a more mature take on the idea. If the art is handled well it could be good especially if they focus on Murphy’s struggle.
Writer Rob Williams has revealed plot details of Dynamite’s crossover project Terminator/Robocop: Kill Human. Speaking to Newsarama, the scribe explained that the miniseries will feature a familiar take on cyborg law enforcer Alex Murphy, who is struggling to maintain his humanity.
“It’s exactly the same character. Alex Murphy as Robocop. His struggle to keep his human side alive,” he said. “But imagine he was just switched off one day and when he’s next woken up he’s in the far future, the machines have taken over and there’s only a couple of human beings left alive. ”It’s the metaphorical war within Murphy taken to the brutal extreme. As for The Terminator future. I think this is as far in the timeline as anyone’s gone. It’s hundreds of years after Terminator Salvation, certainly.”
Williams went on to say that he relished the opportunity to work with interior artist PJ Holden, with whom he had never previously collaborated, despite both having contributed to 2000AD. ”PJ’s great. Excellent storyteller and his pages have that punk energy that 2000AD is famous for, I think,” he added. “Plus, he’s drawn a lot of sci-fi in the past, future war on strips like Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper. He’s good at this type of stuff.”
