Normally, Judge Dredd's arch nemesis Judge Death only lives in a world where all life is crime and the only sentence is death. Thanks to ThreeA, Judge Death will soon be brought to life in our world. Good news for 2000 A.D. fans. Bad news for all the rest of the figures in your collection.

The first in a series of 1/12 scale figures from ThreeA based on the characters from the 2000 A.D. comics, Judge Death comes in at a towering 6.6 inches tall. The sculpt features an entirely new design based on the works of John Wagner, Alan Grant and Brian Bolland. As you can see in the images, Judge Death features a super skinny body type, which is much more slender than is typical of male figures of any scale.

From the details we know so far, it doesn't appear as if Judge Death will come with much else besides his gruesome self. His suit is a fully-tailored faux leather get up, and his boned armor flourishes do look appropriately creeptastic. While fully posable, the lack of different hands or accessories may make the $60 price point a bit too steep for more casual fans and collectors. That said, that Judge Death will be in scale with Mezco's Judge Dredd does bode well for fans of the Mega-City One lawbringer. Despite coming from completely different companies, the two figures should be compatible enough for an impromptu photoshoot or two, though the price of both gives us reservations about getting too crazy with the action posing.

Based on the images alone, Judge Death looks like it will be a stylish and sharp figure. ThreeA is fairly consistent with its quality, even if you do tend to wait a while for the figures to release from the announced pre-order date. Additionally, there will be two colorways available--standard and classic comic style. Though the grey-toned version does pay proper tribute to the actual comic interiors, the full color version is definitely more eye catching.

The ThreeA Judge Death figure will be available for pre-order for $60 on the Bambaland Store on Jan. 14 at 9AM Hong Kong time/8PM Eastern.
