Mattel’s ‘The Watchmen’ Comedian 6″ Figure
September 13, 2013

The next figure in Mattel’s DCSC “Watchemen” Club Black Freighter  subscription line is the Comedian. The Comedian is the 5th figure in the six figure line.  These figures, sculpted by the Four Horsemen, utilize the same 6″ bucks as the DCUC and DCSC lines and fit in well with your other Mattel 6″ DC figures.

There’s nothing funny about this masked mercenary and his twisted sense of justice. His discovery of an evil plot to destroy the world is shocking, almost as shocking as his discovery of a special connection to fellow crime fighter Silk Spectre! This fully articulated 6” figure comes in unique book-type packaging, and arrives with a removable flamethrower backpack, his signature shotgun and yellow base with black Watchmen logo. Also includes an original Watchmen “oversized” trading card with all-new art and character bio.

This version of Edward Morgan Blake has the scarred face (instead of the unscarred, younger face seen in the flashbacks).   The signature smiley face button has been left blank on the figure because of copyrights but it’s not that hard to add if you have a sharpie and a steady hand.   Many collectors have said they wished this figure had come with a alternate head instead of Ozymandius, but this figure already comes with two big accessories and a stand, so it’s not that surprising that he only has the one head.

This is a limited series of action figures inspired by one of the all-time greatest comics and will include all six Watchmen team members by year’s end. When the series is complete, the iconic graffiti-style Watchmen logo will be revealed when all packages are placed side-by-side and the Doomsday clock will count down to zero when viewed from the front.

 

The comedian will be available on 9/16 as part of Mattel’s September sale.   You can find his order page here.  The Comedian is the September “Club Black Freighter” subscription figure.  He will also be available for day-of sales.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
