Way back in 1987, I was a big fan of Watchmen. I guess pretty much if you read comics in the mid-80's, you were a big fan of Watchmen. By today's standards, Watchmen is no longer unique or edgy, but at the time it offered a complexity, depth, grittiness and attention to detail you just didn't get in superhero comics, or, really, any comics I knew of.
I actually missed the original series of graphic novels and didn't read the story until it was republished soon after combined under one cover. And after reading it, I knew it was kind of a big deal. I guess that's what prompted me to buy these metal RPG figurines when i saw them in the comic book store. I had no idea what I would do with them, but I thought it was cool that someone had produced them for gamers. We never really used figurines when my friends and I gamed. We were more the joking-around-having-trouble-staying-on-the-subject type of gamers.
In any case, with the release of the movie, I'm putting these on eBay. It's been a LONG time since I've listed anything on eBay, so I let existing listings and already closed auctions be my guide. In case I screwed up badly and nobody bites, I decided to only list it for 3 days. We'll see what happens. You can follow along and watch my auction get no bids, or anemic bids here:
