25 piece boxed set, huh? I assume that's instead of a standard starter+booster arrangement.

The, ahem, big question I guess is whether or not we're going to get a naked Manhattan (that so needs to be the name of a blue cocktail)

The 25 pieces gives me hope that we will get the previous generation, as well, which is even more unexpected.

It's pretty much guaranteed. There's only so many characters who appeared in the film - unless WizKids/NECA plans to make a Bob Dylan clix figure, or Richard Nixon, they'll have to use the Minutemen.

I think it would be funny, but I tend to doubt it! :p

Don't let 'em fool you. Dice? Two pieces. Clix rings? Two pieces. Map? One piece. We're down to 20 and we haven't even touched the rules, the power cards, the objects...

cheeky.

Guaranteed:
Dr Manhattan
Rorschach
Ozymandias

Likely:
Silk Spectre I
Silhouette (and while it may be cynical of me, I can see her having a 2 figure piece where she's kissing the nurse)
Nite Owl I
Captain Metropolis
Hooded Justice
Moloch The Mystic

Potentiall:
Dollar Bill
Mothman
Bubastis

That's 15.

Or 12 if you count the power card for the 1st 6 characters (though they might put them in a punch-out frame)

if you read the press release from wizkids, you'll see that it specifically says 25 figures, and separately says 25 unique sculpts, so it sounds like they won't be counting the maps, rings, etc as "pieces".
