Dr. Manhattan: The Hanes Profile

Looks like kids’ toys are once again being made for kids and not collectors, now that the action figure of the bluest, nudest, dongiest superhero of all time, Dr. Manhattan, is wearing briefs.

Not that I’m complaining, of course – it’s not my place to decide whether the boys of male action figures should be shuttered behind spandex or not. But it is my place to point out the best comment on the Doc’s underwear. It’s from a reviewer on Amazon.com, who notices that the child safety warnings don’t quite add up when the toy in question is a well-endowed Watchman:

CHOKING HAZARD — Small parts. Not according to the movie
CHOKING HAZARD — Toy contains a small ball..once again, not according to the movie.

I probably don’t need to tell you this, but under “Was this review helpful to you?” I clicked “Yes” like 380 times.
