Oh crap!!!

I am 100% in as soon as I read the fine print. I've never done anything like this before but I am a nut for the Watchmen toys. I wonder how these will compare to the previous line of 6" figures.

Hope they branch out and do some weird stuff, would love a Bubastis.

Thanks for the info!

So...about two hours left to sign up, I got my order in just under the wire. I figure this is the way to go, I'm definitely going to want all of these figures and they're not going to be cheaper anywhere else.

Suck we have to wait 5 more months before the first figure ships though. The previews at SDCC for Rorschach and Dr Manhattan looked pretty sweet.

Thanks for posting! Looks good from the waist up, but those legs are a train wreck. Gotta fix those before final release.

Can't wait to start getting these!

My credit card was charged last night, so it looks like this will be shipping soon as hoped.  :)

Looks like Dr Manhattan for March and then I would guess Silk Spectre for May. Woot!

Got Rorschach yesterday in the mail...he is insanely awesome. Really a solid effort, hefty, well sculpted, precision paint apps, the whole package. The packaging is great too, really feels like you are getting something for your money. (which is not insignificant)

So glad I went in on this, hope they will keep it going beyond the initial 6 figures for this year...

Saw some shots of The Comedian from Toy Fair, comes with shotgun and backpack flame thrower, looked predictably awesome. I believe he was mentioned as slated for a September release.

Makes me wonder who will come out in that July slot...

Thanks Jeff, yeah I saw that on their website after I posted but was too lazy to come back and update the thread. Plus I sort of feel like I am the only one who cares around here anyway.

Too bad though, these are really great figures.

Dr Manhattan arrived today...not quite as thrilling as Rorschach, but a quality effort nonetheless. No accessories or anything like that, though to be fair there really aren't any that would make sense for the character.

Looking forward to Silk Spectre in May!
