DC Collectibles Announces Doomsday Clock Action Figures
It’s been a longtime coming but now we can finally say that we’ve got Watchmen action figures coming soon thanks to DC Collectibles and the DC Comics miniseries Doomsday Clock.
Remember back in the day Alan Moore, the writer of Watchmen, made a fuss over selling Watchmen toys because that’s what he actually stood against? And DC caved in and stopped the release? Then in the late 2000’s with the release of Zack Snyder’s Watchmen movie adaptation, the market was suddenly filled with all sorts of Watchmen goodies based on the movie instead.
But now, this will be the first time that we’ll actually have a non-mail subscription toy set of characters from the Watchment universe thanks to the 2-pack set up from DC Collectibles based on Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s Doomsday Clock.
The first wave will feature:
- Doctor Manhattan
Doomsday Clock Action Figures
DC Collectibles will be shipping and selling these figures by two and here’s the breakdown for that:
- Ozymandias and Doctor Manhattan
- The Comedian and the Mime
- Rorschach II and Marionette
I’m betting this isn’t the last of the Doomsday Clock action figures as we also have to do figures of Batman, Superman, Lex Luthor and the Joker. All four of these characters figure heavy into the Doomsday Clock story. Remember Batman tricked Rorschach II and locked him up in Arkham Asylum last issue.
