One of the things I’ve liked about Watchmen over the years is that it hasn’t been insanely commercialized, thanks to Alan Moore’s lack of interest in merch. That’s all about to end as DC Direct has premiered the images of the first two figures from the Zack Snyder adaptation of the seminal comic book in the latest Entertainment Weekly.
The Rorschach figure looks pretty cool, but the Nite Owl… Well, let’s just say that people who have seen the costume in person and in action might feel that while this figure is technically representative, it doesn’t quite capture the feel of the character.
In the meantime… if you’re a regular CHUD reader and come across something like this while clicking about the web, how about dropping us a line instead of just posting it on the message board? That makes you seem like a dick.
