After bringing the Wheeled Warriors to the Joeverse I had an idea for another custom I had been wanting to tackle - Judge Dredd.

Still doing some minor tweaks and in RL the hands match the gloves almost perfectly.

Officer Joseph Dredd, a motorcycle cop for the Miami Police Dept., had made a traffic stop on the Dreadnok Torch shortly after he had fled a smash and burn at a local business killing several occupants. Torch tried to flee and Dredd ended up using force to stop him, handing the 'Nok a beating. Torch ended up getting off on a technicality. His first order of business upon release was revenge. He paid off a clerk in the MPD for the address of Dredd. One night while Dredd was on duty he paid a visit to his home burning it to the ground with his wife and daughter still inside. Upon arriving at the scene, Dredd swore revenge on all the Dreadnoks and tired of the flaws in the Justice system claimed himself Judge Dredd - A one man judge, jury and executioner.
Now Judge Dredd rides his cycle down whatever road leads him to a 'Nok and he will not stop until this gang is extinguished!
Judge Dredd is sought as a recruit of Slaughter's Marauders.

What started out as a hybrid actually ended up being as comic accurate as I could get him. I originally was going to go Judge Dread in this verse as a Dreadnoks ref, but went back to Dredd as I went more true comic format.

A very cool looking figure, one that I'd buy at retail! And I'm not even a Judge Dredd fan!

What a great idea for a custom. This is flawless. Everything about this, from the paint to the details of the uniform and the vehicle itself, is incredible.

Thanks for sharing!

as a comic accurate custom, he looks great...spot on. As a figure to include in the joeverse, he looks...odd. I don't believe the comic look fits in with the joeverse...i would have probably veered more towards the movie outfit for joeverse compatability. That bike is awesome though, very curious about what you made it from.

Wow, I'm so impressed I nearly soiled myself! You did justice to JD, my man (no pun intended).

Yeah, definitely awesome piece of work there, both Dredd and that wicked bike of his.

I'm arresting your figure for impersonating a Judge, perp, and I'm taking it into custody.

Thank-you everyone for the really great posts!! Really means a lot to me!

Lawmaster:

Body - Halo Mongoose (Modified)
Wheels - Random TRU diecast Monster Truck

Dredd:

Helmet - GI Joe RoC Ripcord
Head / Hands - MU Cable
Body - MU Gladiator
Left Shoulder Pad - MU Cable
Right Shoulder Pad / Badge / Gloves / Boots / Belt / Kneepads - 2000 AD Judge Anderson 6"

When I was originally going Joeverse I had been going in a slightly different direction (see pic) and would have been using Iron Man War Machine Lower Legs for the boots and some Joe kneepads all with the same gold brush paint look.

Holy F...!!!!! That is perfect! I am beyond words on this. I'm a huge JD fan and you nailed this one so far out of the arena its ridiculous! Best custom of yours to date, and I truly mean that.Im really glad you went comic accurate. While the joeverse blend was very cool, my love for 2000 ad comics and JD really appreciates a very dead on Dredd.
