watchmen_l_1.jpg has the first images of the Watchmen action figures based on the upcoming Zack Snyder movie from Warner Bros.

The figures look spectacular, I just hope they are truly action figures instead of nicely molded pieces of plastic that end up as inexpensive maquettes for those who can’t afford the real deal.

If you happen to be in New York and are attending the New York Comic Con, DC Direct will unveil the first four prototypes on Friday, April 18.

BTW: Both figures will arrive in stores in January 2009 with a price tag of $14.99.

    “Watchmen” action figures are a bit creepy. They should have a little “by Veidt” on them.

    Rorschach will look badass next to my Jack Burton.

    Alan Moore’s brain probably exploded when he saw these.

    Awesome figures. The Veidt logo WOULD be great, on the left sole or something. Since Rorschach’s my favorite character, I’d like to see him with his grappling hook gun and a little thine gel-sack face thing so the pattern changed.
