Aborted designs from 1995 Dredd film even lamer than the movie

Most comics fans, and especially Judge Dredd fans, would agree the 1995 big-screen effort starring Sylvester Stallone left a lot to be desired. Well, it could have been even worse.

Thanks to an auction at PropBay, some original costume concept art is up for grabs, showing off some less-than-awesome Judge looks. Thankfully, the filmmakers opted not to use these specific costumes, designed by fashion guru Gianni Versace.

Having seen footage from the upcoming Judge Dredd reboot, and its mostly-faithful take on the iconic uniform, it's interesting to see just how weird Stallone's Dredd could have been.

Check out the concept art below.

What do you think? Is this the fashion you would expect in Mega-City One?
