These three figures are part of the first wave of official action figures designated to promote the upcoming film, Watchmen. The miniature replicas are detailed to be exact portrayals of the movie's characters. All three are subject to be released on March 11, 2009, nearly a week after the film's theatrical release. Like the other action figures, they will be released by DC Direct.
The figures which are part of the Deluxe Collector Edition are considered the three most popular characters, Rorschach ($99.99), the Comedian ($125.00), and Doctor Manhattan ($99.99). All are 1:6 (figure size:actual size) of their characters and will be packaged in a deluxe four-color window box with a fifth panel and a display base.
Rorschach features an intricate and authentically detailed fabric costume with multiple layers, including his mask, suit, boots, and accessories (in the display he is holding his grappling gun which will be released seperately along with his mask). Comedian comes with many accessories including his trademark sidearms (also sold seperately), and is dressed in a movie-accurate costume of full body armor. At 13 inches tall, Doctor Manhattan comes with a removable black suit.
No official Doctor Manhattan picture was released, but the figure was unveiled at the San Diego Comic-Con 2008.
