    Club Black Freighter - Mattel's Watchmen Line

    I can't believe there isn't a thread about these! Well, we'll try it...

    I just can't get over how cool Rorschach is in hand. The small touches like the missing button and the gun is great. Plus, the packaging is truly amazing on these figures. I'm going to line up the spines as a backdrop for them.

    Wow, he does look great! Thanks fior the pics. I love the Watchmen comic style looks and normally, I'd be all over this. But now is not the time for me to start collecting a new line that costs $10 to ship each figure.

    However, if Matty/dr were able to combine my motuc sub and monthly dos order, it would be a different story.

    Mine arrived yesterday - I'm really impressed with him, and glad I decided to sign up for the subscription. It'll be great to have all six of the core Watchmen characters in comics-accurate style.

    I waffled back and forth quite a bit about whether to get the sub. I'm glad I did too. In a weird way, I'm not sure if Matty really "sold" the figures that well in their initial pictures. Or maybe it's charms were just better experienced in person.

    He looks cool, but not $25 + everything else cool. I'm so glad I passed on the sub as that is less of a headache I have to deal with. It is already bad enough just trying to get my Saint Walker and Netossa subs, but Rorschach would have been an added thorn.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

    If you like the characters, to me the $25 was well worth it. He felt like more value (thanks to the awesome packaging) than Netossa, for instance. And I liked her as a figure. The fact that this is probably the only chance you'll ever get these characters in figure form also helps justify the price to me.
