Fans will finally see their very first comic-based Watchmen action figures. These will release as a subscription in 2013 and will consist of six (6) figures only, one releasing every other month. January will kick things off with Rorschach
, with Dr. Manhattan
following in March. Mattel wouldn't reveal the rest, but said the figures would be of the core Watchmen superheroes, no Minutemen. In other words, fans can expect Nite Owl, Comedian, Silk Spectre and Ozymandias.
Rather brief on this license. Look for Tully Blanchard
The future isn't looking too bright for our transforming hero. The only news was that the Blue Lion
will release in August, concluding with the Black Lion
in October. Will we ever see a Ro-Beast action figure?
The wheels are slowing down on this license as well, with only a handful of new releases announced. These include Courtroom Ray with Tony
(last ghost from the film) and a new prop replica: Ecto Goggles
. These will feature a Slimer animation in the lenses. The faster the dial is turned, the quicker the animation. Coolest of all, the goggles will sync with the previously released PKE Meter replica.
BACK TO THE FUTURE II
Fans have the Hoverboard
replica shipping in November priced at $130.
