Oh, I get it now! It's a kind of stylized interpretation of the costume, a bit Mcmahonish but tweaked for film with the smaller pads and eagle : Judge Dredd Images - Including First Look At Judge Anderson http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/07/25/more-judge-dredd-images-including-first-look-at-judge-anderson/

Personally, I am not feelin' it. The helmet feels amusingly over-sized and the eagle looks like a kids toy. Every shot so far is swathed in darkness, straining to compensate for the lack of gravitas in the character himself.
Still hoping the films delivers though!
