These six movie busts are part of the first wave of official merchandise designated to promote the upcoming film, Watchmen. They will be released in three pairs, Rorschach and Ozymandias on January 29, 2009, Comedian and Doctor Manhattan on February 11, 2009, and Nite Owl II and Silk Spectre II on March 4, 2009. Like the other action figures they will be published by DC Direct and are each individually sold for $69.99, though price may vary by source.
The figures are all hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain busts with the top half of each character and the bust having a symbol that relates to the character, then a portrayal of the Doomsday Clock on the back.
