Don't forget, Doctor Manhattan, as well as what's still available from the other lines, go on sale today. 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET. As long as I can snag one, I'll post some pics when I get it.

I feel you man. It's pricey, but I can't help myself either. Oddly, I'm looking forward to displaying all the packaging. I think they knocked that aspect out of the park. On another site someone commented that he should have came with maybe a glass castle or I was thinking a working hourglass, a watch, some clear energy blasts, a suit or even a flight stand. Any of those would have been nice. So far, the Comedian seems to be the only one that comes with more than one accessory.

I can't wait to see the Ozymandias sculpt. I'm not sure how I feel about the Silk Spectre. I don't have any Mattel female figures, so I have nothing to go off of. I'm diggin' the Nite Owl. Has some issues, but I think it will be nice in hand.

Have you heard anything about what possible subs will be offered for next year? If not, when do they typically release that info? I'm new that the whole thing. Is there any advantage to having a sub outside of early access and a guaranteed figure?

I have a club infinite earts subscription and because I do my figures are 2$ cheaper then on release date. I don't know if the same is true for the watchmen sup. We dont learn about next years subs until SDCC. I think Dr. M should come with an interchangable crotch so I could make him nude!!!

So...got my Dr. Manhattan today... I am sorely disappointed. Most his blues are different shades of blue! What the heck!

Yeah, I just opened up mine today and it's the same issue. I was expecting it since I read your post beforehand. I'm going to browse the Matty Collector forums to see what others are saying about it. Do you think it was an attempt at shading or one of those non matching paint/plastic issues? I see that a lot with Hasbro Marvel Legends. After the great shading on Rorschach, this is a little of a let down. Especially for almost forty bucks.

Outside of the different shades of blue, I really like the figure. The mouth sculpt/chin is odd because it is a little crooked. Overall I think the figure has a nice clean and simple look to it.

Just a heads up that starting April 15th and running until the 30th, Mattel will be opening up Club Subscriptions for the rest of the year to those that missed out. I will be signing up for the rest of the Watchmen figures. Saw the news on Toyark.
