This crossover is part of the DC Rebirth storyline, and will this story will have an impact on the entire DC Universe.

Thank you to DC Collectibles for providing the Doomsday Clock Dr. Manhattan & Ozymandias 2 Pack Figures for review. 

Availability: September 2018

Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias are packaged in a window box with the yellow and black colors used in the Doomsday Clock logo. The back of the box shows the images inside, as well as Rorschach and Mime, and The Comedian and Marionette 2 packs. There is also a brief description on top.

Both figures are part of the new 7″ scale DC Essentials line, which is currently in its second wave. These figures are inspired from their appearance in the new Doomsday Clock crossover in DC Comics, which ties DC and Watchmen in a 12-issue story.

  

 

Ozymandias is sculpted and painted in his gold outfit with purple cape, and garments that are made of soft plastic. The gold piece around his head includes a sculpted eye in the front, with sculpted lines around the entire piece. His arms, legs and belt are also painted in gold, and the belt buckle, gauntlets and ankles all have nicely detailed and patterns sculpted on. The purple part of the sculpt includes the cape, chest and cloth around his hips, which also covers the purple clothing underneath. Ozymandias has an great head sculpt with detailed facial sculpting, and the blue eyes and blonde hair features a good likeness. This super villain also has a gold head band around his head, which is sculpted on. While no accessories are included, such as interchangeable hands, he comes fully loaded with articulation. His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, and swivel-hinged ankles.

  

 

Dr. Manhattan is sculpted almost complete nude with the exception of his black shorts, and his entire skin is a dark blue. The head sculpt is nicely done and he has a clock tattoo on his forehead with the time pointing to midnight, white eye balls, black eye shadow around them, and black eye lashes. This figure also does not include accessories, but also comes packed with articulated. He features a ball jointed neck, ab crunch, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, swivel calves, and swivel-hinged ankles.

Overall, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias are great figures with exceptional detail, sculpting and paint applications that fans of Watchmen and DC Comics will love. We particularly like how well these are articulated as well as the taller size compared to DC Icons. Look for these in comic shops now, or grab yourself a set from the stores below –
