Dice Masters Pitch Session - Watchmen

We are noted as Dice Masters fans here at Gaming with Swag and every few months we get an expansion related to primarily the DC or Marvel brands. The one-off releases of TMNT, Yu-Gi- Oh, and D&D aside they typically remain in the comic universes and the lines are starting to repeat themselves a little bit. Not that we are complaining but I think Wizkids could release an interesting and unique set based on The Watchmen which are under the DC umbrella and have thus far not been included in any set. I am pitching this set to be released as an all in one collection much as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line was released, but it could have more interplay with the existing DC characters since that barrier has been broken in the new DC universe in some exciting ways.

First the Characters, I chose to push for these 16 figures which is the same amount included in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line.  The canon is lighter on villains though so it will be hard to split the set down the middle as the turtles did, but the Watchmen had a fair amount of in-fighting so I think the set still works as a self contained unit.

Watchmen
By Alan Moore
  • Rorschach
  • Dr. Manhattan
  • The Comedian
  • Silk Spectre I and II
  • Nite Owl I and II
  • Ozymandias
  • The Silhouette
  • Captain Metropolis
  • Mothman
  • Dollar Bill
  • Hooded Justice
  • Moloch the Mystic
  • Big Figure
  • Twilight Lady

I think the content of the "Tales of the Black Freighter" could even be included within the action cards for the set which would be another nice touch for Watchmen fans.

The Watchmen series is tough to use because of the troubled history with mad genius Alan Moore, but unlike many adaptations this set avoids creating a new story, you can reuse existing artwork and call back continually to one of the greatest graphic novels in the history of the medium.  I also think that the characters of Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias could allow for some interesting gameplay mechanics if they wanted to shake things up.  

Here comes the We Happy Few and Marvel Ultimate Alliance Remastered video series!
