“I am the law now — the LIVING law!” Hiya Toys announces Judge Cal 1:18 figure

He’s the madman who appointed a goldfish as his deputy and sentenced an entire city to death for defying his megalomaniacal will – Chief Judge Caligula is the latest Judge Dredd figure to be announced by 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.

Cal was the head of the feared Special Judicial Squad, the Judges who judge the Judges! After staging a coup by framing Judge Dredd and assassinating the Chief Judge, Cal became increasingly despotic and erratic, hypnotising Judges to follow his orders, appointing a fish as his deputy, circling the entire city with a mile-high wall, sentencing the entire population to death, and using alien Klegg warriors to enforce his tyrannical rule. He was eventually defeated by Dredd, a ragtag band of renegade Judges and Academy of Law tutors, and Fergee – a giggling, fly-swarmed, baseball bat-swinging denizen of the Undercity!

Due for release in the fourth quarter of 2022, this poseable figure with 16 points of articulation is dressed in Cal’s Chief Judges’ uniform, including oversized torso shield and cape. He also comes with a scale model of Deputy Chief Judge Fish encased inside his ornately decorated goldfish bowl, and two swappable heads – one displaying the smug grin of a tyrant, the other an open-mouthed scowl about to deliver a cruel outburst that could easily condemn millions more to death!

Cal 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 the world of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1977.

Due to pressure on international shipping caused by the pandemic dates, the shipping dates for the new range have had to be set back. The new expected shipping dates are as follows:

  • Judge Dredd Sep 2022 
  • Judge Death Sep 2022

“Gaze into the face of Fear” – Hiya Toys unveils Judge Fear 1:18 figure

There’s nothing to fear but Judge Fear himself – even if he’s only four inches tall!

Rebellion and Hiya Toys are proud to unveil the latest in the new range of 1:18 PVC action figures based on the world of Judge Dredd, from the pages of the bestselling comic British comic, 2000 AD!

Judge Fear is the terror-inducing member of the Dark Judges, the alien superfiends from a dimension where all life has been declared a crime. A single look behind the gothic windows of his helmet visor reveals his victim’s worst fear, scaring them to death!

He was also involved in one of the most iconic moments in the strip’s history – grabbing Judge Dredd’s head and opening his visor, he announced ‘Gaze into the face of Fear!’, to which Dredd replied ‘Gaze into the fist of Dredd!’ – and punched straight through Fear’s head!

Releasing in the second quarter of 2022, Judge Fear comes with 16 points of articulation, shoulder and joint pads, chain and badge of office, utility belt with dimension jump, and his imposing winged helmet. The figure will come shipped in an attractive protective cardboard window box.

Fear 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 the world of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1977.

Due to pressure on international shipping caused by the pandemic, the Judge Dredd and Judge Death 1:18 figures are now due to ship Q2 2022, Judge Mortis will ship in Q3 2022 (available to order from Q1 2022) and Dredd’s iconic motorbike, the Lawmaster, will be available as a set to order from Q2 2022 and hit shelves in Q4 2022.

The 1:18 line will be followed by a 1:12 (six-inch) line with Judge Dredd (available to order from Q2 2022), Judge Death (available to order from Q3 2022), Judge Fear (available to order from Q3 2022) and Judge Mortis (available to order from Q4 2022).

Jason Kinglsey OBE, CEO of Rebellion, said: “Judge Fear is one of those unique characters you only find in Judge Dredd and we’re so impressed by the way Hiya is turning these iconic characters from two dimensional images to three dimensional reality.”

New Judge Dredd action figure line to launch in 2022

He’s the the ultimate lawman of the future at any size – Judge Dredd is heading up a brand new line of action figures in 2022!

Rebellion and Hiya Toys are proud to announce a new line of four-inch and six-inch articulated figures based on the world of Judge Dredd, from the pages of the bestselling comic British comic, 2000 AD!

Hitting stores in time for Judge Dredd’s 45th anniversary in March, this brand new range of fully poseable figures draw on more than four decades of ground-breaking comic books set in the world of the classic character created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1977.

The new collaboration begins with two 1:18 scale, four inch PVC action figures – the legendary lawman of the future, Judge Dredd, and his ultimate foe – the superfiend, Judge Death!

One of the world’s most famous comic book characters, Judge Dredd has been patrolling the mean streets of Mega-City for forty-five years and this dynamic and fully poseable figure perfectly captures his iconic look, drawing on the artwork of legendary artists such as Carlos Ezquerra, Mick McMahon, Brian Bolland, Cliff Robinson and more!

With 19 points of articulation, he comes with shoulder and joint pads, chain and badge of office, boot holster, utility belt, and imposing helmet. He also comes with trademark Lawgiver gun, which fits into the holster on his boot, and Daystick club accessories.

Hailing from another dimension, Judge Death is the undead mass murderer who has declared that all life is a crime! Based on the iconic character design and art by co-creator Brian Bolland, as well as the work of artists Cliff Robinson and Garry Leach, the Judge Death figure comes with 18 point of articulation and a gruesome human heart accessory!

Available to order from retailers and to trade from this month, and releasing in March 2022, both will come shipped in an attractive protective cardboard window box.

Dredd and Death will be followed in the spring by 1:18 figures of Death’s compatriots in carnage, the terror-inducing Judge Fear, in April (available to order from December) and the lord of decay, Judge Mortis, in May (available to order from January).

And no Judge is complete with his fully-armed ride – Judge Dredd’s iconic motorbike, the Lawmaster, will be available as a set to order from March and hit shelves in July.

In June, Hiya will launch the 1:12 (six-inch) line with Judge Dredd (available to order from February), Judge Death in August (available to order from April), Judge Fear in September (available to order from May) and Judge Mortis in October (available to order from June).

Jason Kinglsey OBE, CEO of Rebellion, said: “The fans have been clamouring for new action figures based on the incredible world created by Wagner and Ezquerra, so we’re delighted to be able to announce our partnership with Hiya Toys in time for 2000 AD and Judge Dredd’s forty-fifth anniversaries. Hiya Toys have a great track record for quality and the designs for these figures have blown us away, they look faithful to the comics and with great little details that show how much care and attention has even poured into them. There are so many amazing characters to choose from in this world, we can’t wait to see what’s next!’”
