View Full Version : Dr. Manhattan Poll

Alright. Someone had to do it. It seems there is quite a heated debate going on about whether a Dr. Manhatten figure (from Hot Toys) should be anatomically correct or not. So a poll seems like the best way to see what the majority think.

:lol Dear god, Irish.

I vote that yes, he should be anatomically correct becuase that is how he appears for most of the story, and I'm sure many will want to display him that way, even if I personally would not.

There are all kinds of reasons for it, but the biggest of which is that it makes perfect sense for his character. It symbolizes his increasing detachment from human society and also deconstructs some of the absurdity of other comic book characters with god-like powers. If you can manipulate all matter, walk on the surface of the sun, or teleport yourself anywhere in the universe... why the hell would you give a crap about wearing man-made clothes??

Well said man... that is exactly why it is so important to the story and the character for that to be the case. He is entirely seperate from everything human, that includes fabric. He has no need for it, or anything for that matter...

Of course he should. If it's a legitimate costume (or lack of) from the movie and it can be provided, then why not? Of course, if the question was "Will the Dr Manhattan figure be naked", then my answer would be no. As someone else noted, there's too many weinerphobes out there for that to happen.

And leave the poor Doc alone...those big muscles make everything else look smaller. And maybe he's a grower, not a show-er.

For a figure, how would you define "anatomically correct"?

This is from the Graphic Novels:

Dr. Manhatten (http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/Dr%20Manhattan%203.JPG)

In the live-action film he has like black underwear. So what exactly do you want? If you want a realistic ^^^^^ go to a sex shop.

I agree with you that any figure won't show the sausage and eggs as separate like in the illustration you posted. But it's not anatomically correct to present a formless plastic lump either. And FYI, in the movie they have said they balance his speedo wearing with shots of it all hanging out (there was a pretty funny section of an interview with the director, I think, where he discusses the meetings with the CGI team that were to determine exactly how endowed the good doctor should be. If I were Billy Cruddup, I'd be insisting that my contract state "VERY" :lol)

So no need to go to a sex shop to see a "realistic" blue wang - I'll be able to see one as soon as the movie is released.

I hope they give him is parts, just to be more accurate and gives us the option to display it that way if we wish. I doubt I'd display him like that, but it would be nice to have the option to do so. A bigger question is how will HT make him? Will they make him like DCD with just a figure body painted blue, or will they have a thin layer of blue rubber over a truetype?

oh ok.. see I wasn't aware that he WOULD BE naked in the live-action film. That's why I was asking how anatomically correct do you want/expect the figure to be, because I think my mock-up reflects how he generally looked in the graphic novel and I thought he would be presented in the film wearing a black speedo/underwear. If he's buck naked in the film, then I guess that would be an option to have the figure completely naked with a realistic HUMAN ^^^^^.

Thing is, I made that mock-up using the Triad EVO body, and on most sites they block out the genital area + have a disclaimer that certain elements of the figure are not suitable for people under 16.. even though imo, there's nothing vulgar or offensive about it. There's a definite shape there, but nothing over the top. Now imagine a realistic HUMAN schlong there, I think most sites would have problems promoting that.

I don't know if I'll be getting this figure - probably only stick with my custom Rorshach as I'm trying to cut back on my collecting, but I'll throw in my 2 cents anyway. If I were to buy this figure, I would want him to be accurate with the book - meaning naked with some definition of all appendages (not just the way naked bodies look now). That's how he was in the graphic novel and that's how he should be as a figure. I don't think anyone had problems with him being naked in the novel. Because of ratings and what not -it's not surprising that they would have him wearing something to cover up some of the time in the movie - backside shots are still okay, so I imagine we will see plenty of those in the movie. It's just such a HUGE part of who he is that it would be wrong to not have the option to display him as he is meant to be. It would be nice if they threw in a suit or something for those who prefer to pose him clothed - that would be a win/win I think for everyone.

I think its funny when people paint Machiko's nipples or on the recent Secret Service figure do the same and display them that and receive kudos and great job and that is how the character should be displayed (in Machiko's case) stating accuracy but when it comes to Manhattan's blue wang people all of a sudden are standoffish. Watchmen purists are just asking that the figure be true not only to the source but to the film which these figures are based nothing more and in reality they will probably include the suit so if you aren't comfortable with it you can cover it up. We're just asking that it be there not that anyone do anything to it because its included. :lol

Nah, no offense taken at all.

I was wondering what body you used. What I find funny is, I think it's the Triad EVA body, the naked female version is far more graphic/accurate than the male one. The female one has a definite...(I'm struggling to complete this sentence without being graphic and crude, so let's just leave it at, "the female is visually anatomically correct"!) I totally agree with you that, due to retailer squirmishness, they wouldn't go any more realistic than what you mocked-up (if that), was just saying that - looking at the graphic novel - the vague plastic lump needed more definition if you were to call it "anatomically correct". :naughty:banana:naughty

Of course he should be "correct". It isn't like Manhattan is going about destroying the Viet Cong with a huge erection and a maniacal grin... and I'm sure HT would include a pair of speedos so the prudish can spare themselves.

I think it's the former, personally. I think in general the female body is viewed (even when fully nude) as ok as long as you don't see the inside of the ******. Think about it: The only difference between Playboy (which is seen as art) and like Penthouse and certain features in Hustler (which are usually seen as smut) is that one has naked women and one has naked women spread eagle. That's usually the only thing that seperates "art" from "porn/smut" when it comes to women being nude.

Think about it: Did you see anyone complaining about the various versions of Eve from Species? Because I didn't. And like aussieinnyc pointed out, I've seen people comment on the new Triad EVO body but I haven't seen anyone really care about the EVA body which IS more graphic. So there is definitely a double standard when it comes to nudity.

Look at movies. You can easily find a movie on HBO, SHO, Cinemax that shows completely nude women. But you'd be hard pressed to find as many films showing full frontal nudity of a man. So imo it is a social taboo.

We don't need a V.2 of this poll.

I ain't leaving the big blue question anywhere - NO WEINER LEFT BEHIND!

I want his weiner on the figure ok!
- there isnīt really any reason for anyone IMO to moan about "omfg lol sick he has a weiner!!" and go crazy, maybe for the stupid media but come on common sense media.
- Why would you even rant about that? Not like anybody, I mean any sane person would try and wank him off.
- It is just about the details, now if his skincolour could change with the temperature, that would be awesome.

If he has a tally wacker, we'll be hearing "HAR HAR HE HAS A PAENUS!".

If he doesn't, we'll be hearing "Where's his tally wacker?".

I'd rather hear #1, because closed-minded dolts are easier to block out.

And this poll was a total beatdown.

If they give him his ding-a-ling they better give SS her snatch and nipples

Well if DCD gave SS her nipples then HT would definitely do it.

I voted no...but should have voted yes. The movie is rated R, and Hot Toys are high end collectables not meant for children. I see no reason not to have him anatomically correct. If it was a Mattel figure or something, then I would say no.

Nope. For one he seems to be uncircumcised, so no helmet on show and it's not hairy.

Actually someone at another website was upset that Manhattan does appear to be circumcised in the film. As a woman, thus having no social fears about paying attention, I did notice that during the film and it struck me as a poor choice, because:
a) Manhattan was definitely uncircumcised in the comic art.
b) It is highly unlikely a European author like Moore would depict him as such, since circumcision is extremely rare outside of the Jews and Muslim communities in Europe.
c) Manhattan made his own 'perfect' body and it seems unlikely it would require signs of a surgical alteration.

I do agree with Dinolast that displaying an uncircumcised Manhattan with no knob showing would be less overtly sexual. That would be the ideal figure. If I had to choose among less favourable options, I would prefer an anatomically correct film-accurate version (i.e. circumcised - assuming our visual perception was accurate) rather than a not anatomically correct one.

All Hot Toys figures have not been anatomically correct thus far. So I say it really doesn't matter. Hehehe. If they ever make him without his anatomy... I can already see custom figures with it and critiquing its size etc. Hehehe

Back OT: I must say, I am happily surprised to see the wiener-phobes with less than 10% of the vote so far.

These 2 posts are quite funny together when taken out of context. :D

And I must say it never dawned on me about the situation of his p e n i s.

I think Dr. Manhattan should be anatomically correct.

I'm not sure if I would display him like that, depends on how the figure would look.
I think Hot Toys will include the suit and speedo with the figure as well, so there are a couple of possibilities.
But if it looks okay, I might display him naked, it is how he looked in the movie after all.

And if guests don't like it... well, I'm not forcing them to look at it :D.

Ah well...first it's up to Hot Toys to actually announce the figures.

The fact that this debate even exists at all (and the reaction that Joe Sixpack had to the movie) shows that most Americans are probably more bothered by blue peni-ses than our sputtering economy or actual real issues. :lol

I don't really need to see his Mr. Happy. I'd probably cover it up anyway (bring on the black speedos).

:lol:lol:rotfl

I think it is important that collectors can have an accurate figure as Both in the Graphic Novel and the movie he was totally naked...but I also agree that it would be fair that other collectors could have other options to display him...removable speedo could be the solution I guess
