Another debut from this weekend's New York Comic Con includes the Watchmen action figures being designed by DC Direct.
The figures are collector's edition models sculpted directly from Zack Snyder's original designs and have appeared for the first time at Comic Con. They're great references in comparison to the photos that Snyder released back in early March. I know I'm already going to be buying a complete set of these. Not only because they look fantastic (and it is Watchmen), but also because I have a damn good feeling this movie is going to kick some serious ass. Check out some great new photos of the figures below.
Shown below are the figures for Rorschach, Nite Owl, Ozymandias, and Silk Spectre. Currently missing are The Comedian and Dr. Manhattan, but we can assume they'll show up later on. The figures will be hitting shelves in January of 2009 for around $14.99 a piece. Thanks to our friends at ToysREvil for grabbing the photos (as I didn't have my camera on the showfloor). These really look great - a wonderful compliment to the movie.
Watchmen is directed by Zack Snyder (of Dawn of the Dead and 300) and written by David Hayter (The Scorpion King, X-Men, X-Men 2) and Alex Tse. The movie arrives in theaters everywhere on March 6th, 2009. Stay tuned for even more Watchmen coverage, photos, and more exclusives right here.
