Hot Toys never ceases to amaze when it comes to figure quality, and after today's reveal they are amazing fans when it comes to character selection. This announcement has left me speechless.
I'd like to introduce you to the Batman: 1/6th Scale The Joker (Mime Version) based off the iconic look of Jack Nicholson in the 1989 film. This is an extremely specific rendition of an already-specific rendition of a character, and it's left me surprised that it's being produced. I'm also glad, because it's simultaneously creepy and splendid. This is a disturbingly fun figure that anyone would be lucky to add to their collection.
You can read the details on the upcoming release and check out a mountain of images below. If a photo is worth a thousand words, then Hot Toys' latest reveal is practically a novel.
Batman: 1/6th scale The Joker (Mime Version) Collectible Figure
The first DX series Joker Collectible Figure from Batman (1989) has received high praise from fans and collectors. To follow up on this classic Batman movie directed by Tim Burton, Hot Toys is proud to present the 1/6th scale mime version of The Joker Collectible Figure.
This movie-accurate figure is crafted with impressive likeness of the movie legend Jack Nicholson and features the Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS), elegant costume, a specially-designed stand with backdrop and accessories.
It's really hard to discuss Hot Toys figures these days. There are only so many superlatives in the world, and it's almost impossible to find any faults. The Joker's headsculpt is magnificent in both its expression and its accurate likeness. The clothes are tight, detailed, and worn incredibly well. The accessories are fun and fitting. This is simply a really cool figure.
I'm not sure such a specific costume is going to warrant a lot of fan interest, but I hope I'm surprised. Anytime companies can successfully dive deeper into a license, it always makes me a happy collector. Bring on the obscure, the random, and the absurd!
Just in case you were wondering, I refuse to apologize for the "speechless" pun in the introduction
