Finally have a Rorschach action figure!

Ever since the first time I read Watchmen, I've thought it would be neat to have an action figure of Rorschach to decorate my shelf or computer desk with.

It's taken twenty years, but today I finally get my wish...

Found it at Books A Million in Greensboro while out on some business this morning.

Now all we need is for someone to make a big plush Rorschach doll that goes "Hurm" when you pull the string :-P

Good things come to those who wait :)

Is that a Battletech mini on your monitor's pedestal?

Yup. It's a Catapult. The first BattleTech miniature that I've painted in years.

BTW, regarding its missile launchers: lots of folks have trouble detailing those. I created the tube array in Photoshop, then printed it and a horizontally-flipped version of it at high-res, and used a hobby knife to cut them out and glue them to the mini. Looks VERY nice! :-)

You are going to take Rorschach out of his package, right? Hurm.

Chris Knight said...

That's a tough one. He looks *nice* on display in his box. But Rorschach is one figure that *deserves* to be loose and ready to lash out at a world without morality.

I might keep him packaged. But I also might buy a Comedian and Silk Spectre I and pose them in the rape scene atop my shelf.

Feel free to comment on what a sick and twisted mind I have :-P
