Well obviously we can't tell anything from Rorschach's statue, but The Comedian looks exactly the same as he did in the original comic. I guess it's not that much Before Watchmen.

Here is the official press release..

DC Direct, the exclusive collectibles division of DC Entertainment, announced today an extensive line-up of new collectibles based on flagship publishing and film initiatives. Leading into New York Toy Fair, DC Direct unveiled two new collectible statues based on character art from the recently announced BEFORE WATCHMEN, a series of all-new stories that expand on the universe of best-selling graphic novel, WATCHMEN. Prototypes for Rorschach and Comedian statues will be unveiled at the show, kicking off the new BEFORE WATCHMEN product line that will go on sale later this year, exclusively from DC Direct.

Also announced today is an extensive line-up of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES collectibles based on characters from the highly-anticipated upcoming Warner Bros. film. The line includes statues, busts and action figures based on iconic characters from the film including Batman, Catwoman and Bane.

“The DC Direct team has put together an amazing line-up for 2012,” stated Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer for DC Entertainment. “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and BEFORE WATCHMEN lines are especially exciting, and the team has set the bar high as far as creative execution. We’re proud and psyched to share these collectibles with the world at Toy Fair. This is the tip of the iceberg with what we’ve got planned for DC Direct this year and beyond.”

Rorschach looks a bit happy-go-lucky.
I guess it'll be interesting to see how he is with Nite Owl before he burns the child molester to death, although I doubt his personality would be too different.

Doesn't look like its BEFORE watchmen at all. Looks like its strait from a scene in the DVD.

Guys - this is ALL f*cking wrong. The writing/art should come first. And it should be good. This just milks the GEEK in all of us. The toy is MORE f*cking important than the comic? HELLO. Veto this sh*t. The tail is wagging the f*cking dog! Don't be exploited like this.

100% agreed billybatson...

Now do you people understand why Alan Moore didnt want this to happen?
JohnnyKrypton - 2/9/2012, 1:31 PM
^^Alan Moore is a hypocrite in love with the smell of his own farts. How do you thin k L. Frank Baum would react to Moore's "re-interpretation" of Dorothy? Eff him.

I say DC should give Watchmen the "New 52" treatment so everyone can talk about how much better the hip, modern Rorshach looks in his 90s Image outfit :-)

@Billy

The art DID come first...that's where the sculptures came from.

Nomis, Rorschach didn't burn that pedophile to death. The pedophile made a choice, to be burned alive or to cut through his wrist. I see nothing wrong even if it happened for real.

These look really good...
At 9 inch tall hopefully they will only cost around $99 like the Cover Girls of DC Universe series...
