Looks like the Watchmen ratios are:

20:96 THE COMEDIAN
20:96 RORSCHACH
16:96 OZYMANDIAS
15:96 DOCTOR MANHATTAN
12:96 NITE OWL II
12:96 SILK SPECRE II
01:96 Suited DOCTOR MANHATTAN (CHASE)

Still no word if there are special 3-packs for the USA or what...

Very strange to me that Ozy is more common than Nite Owl. ..

I wouldn't mind seeing the GI Joes from the cartoons being made into Kubricks. Or characters from the Final Fantasy video games.

Ha!
I thought the ending was fine.  Loved the whole series.
Have to check and see if the made Tigh with a patch as a Minimate.
The Minimates just can't compare to Kubes though.

Yes they're a very large blip on my Kubrick radar that's for sure ;)

You can probably find him at your local TRU.  These aren't selling very well.

And I would debate you as to whether the Minimates could compare with Kubricks, but I'm sure that isn't a popular argument around here, so I won't go there ;)

I don't know the first thing about Kubricks (other than owning a Blair Witch Project box set and thinking the ones I've seen here on JD look insanely cool), but while at TRU earlier today, they had at least 10 Watchmen three packs sitting on the shelves.  Roughly 20 bucks each before tax, and there seemed to be an equal number of each three pack (two different ones) on the shelf.

Pack 1 was the Comedian, Nite Owl II, and Ozymandias
Pack 2 was Dr. Manhattan (totally blue), Rorschach, and Silk Spectre II

I just found this odd since it was the first time I've ever seen TRU carry any Kubricks in-store.  I wound up passing on them, as I'd already shelled out 50 bucks for the new TIE Interceptor, but I thought I'd let you Kubrickaholics know about it nonetheless.  :)

Thanks for the tip!  I may have to go check my local TRU for these and cancel my pre-order with BBTS.

Ningyoushi.com has the Watchmen sets in-stock for $16 each.  I ended up ordering from them and cancelled my BBTS pre-order.  They didn't mention anything on their site about the Dr. Manhattan suited variant figure, but at this point in time I really don't care if I get that figure or not.  I'm happy with the two basic sets for that price.

I also looked at TRU.com and they have both of these sets as a pre-order for $20 each.

Medicom update today but I saw this posted over at KN earlier today. Preorder for this set is up at BBTS for $18.99 with a release date of April 2010. I like this set, the likeness of Carl is just awesome.  8)
