WATCHMEN-NYCC2009

*Note: Figures featured in this blog-post are of the 13-inch variety and not the other sized action figures or props and replicas from DC Direct. We've seen them before and you can check them all out at Cool Toy Review [all original images via].

RORSCHACH13

RORSCHACH: I've never been convinced since they first showed the prototype at SDCC'08 (of coz I "saw" it online - which doesn't count for much, I reckon :p). This version somehow looks ... "better"? ~ or could be a trick of the camera ... heh.

DRMANHATTAN13

DR MANHATTAN in a fitted dark suit with shaking his fist at the folks beyond the glass-display case to return him his shoes ... going blue-barefoot is better than wearing black shoes with white shoes, innit? (Which was somehow the rage in the 80's innit? C'mon, YOU wore them too, innit? heh). I wonder of Dr Manhattan has his blue-undies under this formal attire?

COMEDIAN13-01

I've had my reservations with THE COMEDIAN - after seeing the online images / ads - which quite frankly; sucked might not have given the fgure justice (geddit? "Justice"? Vigilante-Justice? ... nvrmnd). Here Blake Edwards looks pretty buff-nifty, with his armor and guns - and this is the one time that the overtly-buffed (standard) body-form of the 13-incher tall series actually "works" for The Comedian, IMHO. The removable domino-mask is a nice touch too.
