Eerie Joker figure

Apr. 13, 2009by: Dave Davis

How accurate can an action figure's likeness get to its human counterpart before it crosses over into being downright creepy?

Hot Toys may have found the answer with their latest "cop disguise" variant DARK KNIGHT Joker, the upcoming debut of their high-end MMSDX figure series that features a rather chilling resemblance to late star Heath Ledger (made all the more unnerving by the "Parallel Eyeball Rolling System").

Hot Toys is a Hong Kong production house known for detailed figures from popular genre movies (TERMINATOR, ALIENS, PREDATOR). This isn't the first Joker figure from them, (their Bank Robber version from last summer was a hot item) but this new model seems almost disturbingly similar to the real thing. Check out more details HERE and keep an eye on domestic resellers (like Sideshow) to try and grab one.

This is by far the best Joker figurine to ever come out of any [link] thing. Ordered mine.

And 'd00r':

The ones you buy DO match the pictures shown. HotToys make awesome figurines. The bank robber version looks almost identical to what was shown in promo pics and no doubt this one will too.

what i wonder is, is this an item you keep the box in mint condition,or on your self proudly out of the box so you can change his pose and costume every day? i would go with the latter. to bad theres no nurse outfit... but i bet that wouldve jacked the price up higher anyway

Cool!!!

Both figure are awsome! I only wish I could afford them, the closest thing I have to these are the Movie Masters 6 in. action figures, hope they're still around when I have enough $$ to buy them.
