Bear Baiting

In 2000, Alan Moore puts the kibosh on this:

a proposed series of 15th Anniversary Watchman figures from DC Direct due to his antipathy for all things DC, with DC stating:

"DC initiated plans for a fifteenth anniversary celebration of Watchmen in collaboration with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Subsequently, they've informed us that they'd prefer not to participate and it wouldn't be a party without them. Therefore, DC will not proceed with its previously announced plans for a Watchmen hardcover or Watchmen action figures."

Well, the hardcover came out in 2005, and 2008 gives us this:

Watchmen Movie Toys from DC Direct.

Guess it's now a party without them.
