In all honestly, if you're not a huge Indy fan (which I personally am), this is kind of a boring figure. The main reason to pick it up is for the exclusive version that Sideshow released that came with the Idol Chamber Base (as seen in the previous post).

And what lay inside said parcels? Why merely a veritable treasure trove of 1/6th INDIANA JONES MADNESS THAT'S WHAT!
After a good month or two of debating which 1/6th scale Indiana Jones figure I'd be buying; Medicom's RAH, or Sideshow's 12 inch Indy, I finally opted to go with both. Luckily, I ended up snagging them on Ebay. Medicom's Indy cost me sixty dollars (a savings of close to 100 dollars if I'd ordered it through Sideshow's catalog), and Sideshow's Indiana Jones AND Rene' Belloque were bought in a single 100 dollar bid on Ebay as well (that's a savings of almost 120 dollars people. Dash MacBastard's Recession Busting Tips lesson #1: Always check Ebay first!).
Taking a spin over to K-Mart later, I found that the teensy weensy Hasbro Indiana Jones Adventure Heroes had been relegated to the clearance section. Each two pack had been marked down to $3.50. I picked up three sets. Loves me the Indy movies.
I was also pleasantly suprised to find that DC Direct had managed to crack the Toys R Us barrier and finally got their toys onto TRU's shelves. The Watchmen movie figures were there waiting for me, and I scored (Modern) Nite-Owl.
But wait. What's this...
I was going to post a full on, fanboy review of Watchmen. I'd taken in two sittings of the film, spent a week mulling it over, scribbled countless notes, went back and compared Snyder's work with Moore's graphic novel, and hacked out a lengthy rough draft.
In the end though, all I can really say is that I liked the film way, way more than Hitler did (gargantuan, interdimensional cephalopod-less ending and all)...
