    Got this in a few days ago, The new official 2000 ad licensed Judge Helmet and am in love with it. This is the xl size for my sizable coconut. It seems to work on anybody. My wife has a small scone and it looks cool on her too.
    On with the pics...just a few wee daft ones to start. Thrilled to say the least, thankyou Dan for your absolute professionalism in your art AND business,.
    Any comic Dredd fans out there this is a must obtain.
    Even the packaging is customized to YOU! Impersonating a judge is a serious offence but Ill try to get new shots shortly:)!!!

    So happy upon opening the box I celebrated with a nice pint of merlot.

    That looks fantastic!

    I think if I had one of those, I'd probably wear it all the time. :D

    Trust me I have the same problem, this IS the xl size. The Termight was a little large on me, so I added some minor padding. This isn't as large as that, but it fits perfectly. I'm 23.5 around, The whole time I was waiting for it, I was obsessing about the size, but it fits beautifully. Yep Ill be the * actually wearing his to the premier:)

    Yeah, it looks like it fits nicely. I'm also trying to decide whether or not I should go ahead and get the comic-style helmet, or wait until a good "Dredd" helmet is made. Regardless of how that movie turns out, that helmet is nice!

    I've never heard of this before. These are replicas based off the comic and not the movie?

    You'd be correct! I've only recently discovered that these replicas are made as well. I've known about TERMIGHT for some time, but PLANET REPLICAS is new to me through this thread.

    Planet Replicas took over from Termight as the 2000 a.d. license as the official producers of the Judge Helmet.

    I'm really glad they did! I kept missing Termight's run of the helmet. Now I think I actually have a fighting chance at getting one!

    Great shots, thanks for posting (especially the pics of the cool packaging).

    I have no desire to hijack this thread, but if anyone wants to see how the helmet looks with a complete outfit, I have one of the early Planet Replicas prototype full costumes.
    You can go here (I'm on the left):

    Can you post a photo of the lining of the helmet? There's one on the website but I'd like to see another.
    My prototype had no lining and I made one myself. It fits like a glove, but I may actually adjust it so that I can fit a sweatband in there since the helmet gets hot and sweaty a lot faster than I thought it would (owing more to the heat at Comic-Con than any kind of flaw with the helmet design of course).

    Sure Ill take one for you. Its fairly simple. Id like to add extra so it as you say fits on there perfectly, noseguard lining up etc. My Termight one I padded the hell out of and it slides on like a crash helmet, which is appropriate as its big. lol
    Pics comin.

    Yup. Me and Judge Molcher. Great guy. I just wish he wasn't so * tall. I'm about 6' in my Dredd outfit and he makes me look like a shrimp. : )

    Here you go, I'm loathed to add padding to it as I don't want to ruin the lovely job Dan did....oh and it smells great.:)

    Thanks for the pics. So how would you describe the lining? Is it a foam with fabric over it? Is it relatively soft, or kind of firm like you'd find on athletic pads?

    It is indeed thin foam with fabric. Firm foam, but not uncomfortable. It wouldn't honestly take much to make this fit glove-like, its almost there as it is.
