After reviewing the VTS VM-013 1/6th scale New Epoch Cop 12-inch figure aka Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson from DREDD movie (action figure review HERE), let's see how she fares beside the 2014 released Art Figures AF-015 1/6th scale Heavy Armoured Special Cop "DREDD" 12-inch figure (Reviewed earlier HERE and HERE). These two figures are released by different manufacturers and it's interesting to see how they look beside each other. Art Figures also released their version of Judge Anderson but she just didn't make the cut. Art figures' version looks rushed and certainly not up to standard compared with VTS version. You can see the preview pics of Art Figures AF-020 1:6 Heavy Armoured Special Cop (Female) figure HERE.
These two figures look quite good together, even if they are made differently. The red color on the helmets are different, Judge Anderson's helmet is a tad brighter than Dredd's. Other minor differences exist but they are not as obvious. VTS 1/6th scale New Epoch Cop's (Judge Anderson) Lawgiver Mk. II has more colors than Dredd's which is mostly black. Knee pads and shin guards are different too.

Dredd strikes a very imposing figure compared to Anderson and that's a good thing. The height difference works well here as we expect Dredd to be more intimidating and have a commanding presence.
Here are two different versions of the Judges. Medicom Toys released their 1/6 scale RAH (Real Action Hero) movie version Judge Dredd 12-inch figure way back in 1995 when the movie came out and it was my FIRST Medicom figure I ever bought. It also introduced me to the world of high-end collectibles. You can check out the action figure review HERE. Still waiting for an updated version. It's been more than 20 years. A female Judge Hershey figure by ACE Girls Mission was released in 2010 - see the review post HERE. So there are a total of four Judges from two movies in the picture below.
I am now waiting for the 2000 AD x ThreeA 1/6th scale JUDGE DREDD 12-inch Collectible Figure which is most faithful to the comic :) preview pics HERE
