Planet Replica’s are offering digital files for printing your own Dredd movie lawgiver so long as you’re signed up to their website.
As some of you may already know, we had very early connections with the production of DREDD.
We’d tracked down all the makers of the costume and props used in the film long before the items went to auction - and digital files for the Lawgiver were one of the first pieces we obtained.
They were from a very early stage of it’s development, and were possibly the digital files used to create the turntable animation used in the DVD Extras
However, they were of an early prototype, and in some cases they needed completely remaking in order to correct them.
We spent a considerable time matching screen references and Hi-res photos of an actual prop, kindly supplied to us by the original builder, in order to rebuild the files where needed. Some details were hand made items by the SFX crew, and these too have been replicated here.
Other files are direct like for like versions.
We’ve reached a point now where the build is complete and all the parts are here for a functional, working slide replica model kit, just as built for the film.
I’m signed up to the website and there’s a 3D printer at my work…
I’d probably never get around to doing anything about it but it’s pretty cool nevertheless!
