Bye Bye Watcher…

We'd touched on Diamond Select no longer making new Fantastic Four figures as a result of the spat between Marvel and Fox, that also led to the cancellation of the current Fantastic Four comic book.

Well, Marvel Toy News has seen this affect Entertainment Earth's customers as well.

Collectors who pre-ordered The Watcher Marvel Select figure are now across the board receiving cancellation notices from the retailers they ordered him from, which read something like this:

"Thank you for ordering from Entertainment Earth. We have been notified by the manufacturer that we will not be receiving any additional shipments of Marvel Select Watcher Action Figure, (Item DC10783), because they have discontinued production of this item at this point in time. The order you placed for this item has been cancelled in our system.

If this item is again made available, we will contact you for a possible re-order. We apologize for the inconvenience, as we certainly would have preferred to fill your order. Your order information appears below."

Killing him off in Original Sin clearly isn't enough. Maybe they can do a Watcher Nick Fury figure instead?
