    SSSSSSSSSSoooooooo have to have that Dredd badge. Sadly I won’t be able to get it because it’s only saturday through a signing but luckily my patience will pay off as Planet Replicas will produce a Heavy-Weight version later this year so I’ll gladly take that over the light-weight version. Probably be some type of aluminium.
