Judge Dredd: K-2001 Killdozer [comicbook variant] by JonathanBluestone Judge Dredd: K-2001 Killdozer [comicbook variant] by JonathanBluestone
When Mega-City Two was besieged by the horrific 2T (Fru)T plague and the spaceports and landing pads became unsafe to land on, the Mega-City One Justice Department dispatched Judge Dredd and a squad of hand-picked senior Judges to cross the Cursed Earth to take a vaccine to the city to cure it. The post-atomic hell of the Cursed Earth was considered so dangerous that the journey was to be made in a armored fort on tracks in the form of the K-2001 Killdozer and Landraider, a combined heavy assault vehicle. The variant of the Killdozer shown here is how the vehicle was originally presented in the 2000A.D. story ''The Cursed Earth''. The Nemesis Rocket Launchers which appeared in the comic book version differed significantly from the ones shown on the K-2001 toy the vehicle was based on and are reproduced in the images shown here.

These are complete re-draws of the original plans I posted in 2016 based on the K-2001 Matchbox toy released in 1976.

As awesome as these are, I can't help something. Ever time I here the name of the virus that struck Mega-City Two, I crack up laughing at how horrible that pun was.

Not what it did to the citizens of course. But the name. Maybe it's just me.

Nope its very typical of John Wagner. He often puts in exotic references or the names of celebrities for the names of citiblocks. Its like when Dredd and Rico met - Rico being Dredd's clone brother. On killing Rico, Dredd picked him up and said, "H-He ain't heavy, he's my brother" which of course is a reference to a song.

Perfect for urban pacification operations, huh?

With Justice Department that have so many means to pacify the citizenry. From H-Wagons, the Manta Prowl Tanks and the Gunbird they sort of make the Killdozer somewhat redundant and that's not including the Judges mainstay, the Lawmaster which is in a very real sense a two-wheeled tank capable of taking out a small block if necessary. But normally it comes down to riot control and the tried and trusted method of the daystick and the application of riot foam.
