Continued from my part 1 review: This is a very nice head sculpt to resemble Sylvester Stallone in 1995 Judge Dredd (film).
The overall paint work is good and skin texture looks natural. The hair is beautifully sculpted with realistic color application.
Look at the details of the gauntlets and tactical boots..They are well replicated. The boots have some weathering too.
As the blue outfit is stretchable, it fits the figure. It doesn't restrict the body articulation.
Besides three pouches, there is a drop leg holster attached to right side of the utility belt. The transparent holster looks futuristic.
The magnet in the outfit allows Dredd's metal badge to be held firmly in place.
Judge Dredd looks cool with his helmet and Virtual Toys has captured the signature mouth expression of Sylvester Stallone.
Although the helmet has no weathering, it still looks good with glossy paints.
A chest padding was added to the body so that the shoulder armour fits nicely to the upper torso.
Now, Judge Dredd is ready to kick some ass with his Lawgiver "One Shot One Kill".
I love the simple design of the Lawgiver. It is made of hard plastic with basic paint application.
You can rotate the head but cannot adjust the neck position as it connects to the upper body.
As this is a "muscle" body, you can only bend its arms to maximum 90 degrees.
For lower body articulation, the boots restrict the ankle movement. Hence, the figure can only hold some basic poses.
As the figure has tight joints, it has no issue to stand on its own. Unfortunately, Virtual Toys only gives an extra hand to the figure. If the figure comes with a few pairs of hands, that is perfect!! You may read my review of 2012 Judge Dredd here.
