Based on her look in the comics, this Silk Spectre II figure is a part of the Black Freighter Series of WATCHMEN figures. She stands about 6 inches tall, fully articulated and features some impressive detailing that really captures Dave Gibbons’ incredible art. Fans of the comic should definitely pick this one up.
More and more Sideshow/Hot Toys collaborations coming in! And the newest one is a stunner:
The new Hot Toys and Sideshow Silk Spectre II figure has joined the rest of the Watchmen figures and is the fourth character, after Dr. Manhattan, The Comedian and Rorschach, to be given the deluxe 12-inch treatment. This is a figure I was fortunate enough to see in its prototype stage when I was at 2009’s San Diego Comic Con and believe me, it looked great. The detail on the face is exquisite, capturing Malin Akerman’s features perfectly, and the outfit fits brilliantly. If you’re a fan of the film, the comic, the actress or just high-quality figures, this is a great choice.
Beyond being generally rad, here are the specs from the creators.
* Film accurate costume of a black & yellow romper with garters
* black thigh-high boot tops
* long black gloves
* interchangeable trench coat
* Detailed likeness with implant hair
* The authentic likeness of Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II
* One set of interchangeable gloved hands
* Figure stand with Silk Spectre II nameplate
WATCHMEN’s Silk Spectre II has already been rendered as a 6-inch figure by DC Direct, but the company has now joined on with Hot Toys to release a new 12-inch model using real fabric and an incredible likeness of the Zach Snyder film’s Malin Akerman.
This beautiful figure is fully articulated, brilliantly poseable and looked great when I saw it on display at last year’s San Diego Comic Con. I can promise that the picture here doesn’t do it any justice: the work they’ve done on the face is stunning. Be sure to check this one out if you’re a fan of the film–or just a fan of the comics who has not made any anti-materialist promises to Alan Moore. Shipping early this year, but can already be pre-ordered.
