Bravo Hot Toys, bravo :clap

Looks like the flaws in the original figure's head, sculpt and paint, are made up for here, this is a must get figure, looks badass.

This may be our last Joker from HT too, I see the M76 machine gun comes with this figure, and since it's not tied to this scene, it's definitely and added touch to sell this to folks.

The lip expression on the regular head is perfect for the mob meeting in the movie. Definitely getting this figure for a head swap and to have the BR figure as well. pjam should be psyched, mask is removable. I'm surprised they did it that way, but kudos to them.

*faints. hits head on desk.*

wow. that looks great. both heads. even the slicked back hair one (which wasn't supposed to look good from what i heard) looks awesome.

i love the "he's so serious." pitch.:lol

Looks pretty darned good, though I'll probably just pick the mask up on Ebay from a bits-and-pieces seller.

I love it. The regular HS is perfect and obviously done to replace the Joker v1 since we never saw the messy paintjob in that scene at all, even when he took the mask off his paint was perfectly applied. I'm definitely glad I ended up with three Jokers. I will display one standard v1, one with the v2 sculpt changed out and then Les'. Perfect display.

They will. Toys2 never puts anything up until its officially released via HT's site. Word is that will happen this week so look for them to start selling at that time as well.

Of course it does! The sculpt is also way better and appears to be dead on! The first Joker sculpt wasn't so accurate because HT went off of pre-production shots, but I am sure they worked on this one after the movie came out and they could really nail the paint and likeness this time.

MaulFan
08-24-2008, 07:00 PM
It's only a rough picture right now, but as far as the face goes, I think this regular head on this figure may be the best 1/6 Ledger Joker face out there. DCD's is a great likeness, but totally devoid of expression, this looks like likeness and life to it, I'm just mesmerized by it.

The Mike
08-24-2008, 07:02 PM
Agreed. No offense to Josh or Les or Chris or anyone else who is making customs but this is my absolute favorite Joker sculpt. It look like its about to speak to you just by looking at it.

fanboyz
08-24-2008, 07:04 PM
First one is good enough for me, not distinctive enough to warrant a new one. Hope to see more closeup of the sculpt. Makeup looks more messy and more screen accurate

08-24-2008, 07:04 PM
The Joker sculpt with his hair back looks the same to me just with different hair, but the newer head sculpt looks amazing. Am I the only one who thinks the new headsculpt looks perfect for the interrogation scene? The makeup and expression is perfect

MaulFan

Makeup looks good for the interrogation, but the face totally reminds me of the mob meeting.

Are you really surprised?

Somewhat in there defense though, I really think between the iffy sculpt, off paint job and lack of proper accessories, HT knew very little about Joker in the movie when making their first figure. I really believe in that case, they weren't out to screw anyone but just had their figure hurt by working on it so far in advance to have it out for the film's release. We won getting figures so close, but we lose because in some ways they're not as good or complete as they could be.

probably switch heads with my current joker. i like the current joker a lot but this one is obviously better. kudos to hot toys for the extra head. do hot toys heads with the sculpted neck pop off as easy as the neckless ones? or do you need to heat them like Sideshow's?

They come off very easily, I was surprised, but I popped my current Joker head off just to futz with the costume and it's a pretty soft material, easily pops off the neck adapter, and even if the adapter stays in the neck, that comes off the base body easily too, just ball joints.

I just put a request in with Joe to see if I can still preorder the figure. I just hope its not coming in the same time as other things I got on order. If so the Indy is def out. The new headsculpt looks great, on both of them that is. And best yet it looks like the interigation joker, which was my favorite scene from the movie. I might saw that head onto the first joker (when joe sends them out) and then have the slicked one on the new body with the mask.

Yes. The interrogation scene make up was almost completely off. You see way more of his natural skin tone in that scene than in any other.


http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b44/kryptonianmike/MakeUpHands3.jpg


Even in the beginning the facial paint is really exaggerated.

Its definitely to represent the Mob Meeting scene which makes sense since that is where we see him first in the purple suit.

You are 100% correct in saying so... This sculpt looks to be the end all be all of Joker heads... PERFECTION!!! At long last!!

I'm just so damn happy to have one be out there finally. We can all interpret the best we can with our abilities, but to see someone just knock it out of the park like that? It's exactly what I have been waiting for.

Bravo HT... :clap

2008 is once again the Year of Hot Toys... Sideshow has certainly raised their game but they still have a loooong way to go to catch up.

This Joker is unbelievable and I'm pulling a HT Jack Sparrow on him (switch a V1 head for a V2). That regular Joker head is going straight on the version 1 body!

Wookster didn't get scooped he posts the official pics and specs when they are released.

Also, these are Aidos, not Adidas so the design should be consistent.

Shoes are a SUPER easy fix... just a tiny bit of paint and it's perfect. The shirt is slightly off color too, but really... I don't care. That sculpt is amazing... as are the accessories. Definitely a MUST own.

cerealkeller
08-24-2008, 07:41 PM
Too bad I'll soon own all 1/6 Jokers to date. After my HT Joker arrived, the DC version went back in the box, where it will probably stay since I repainted the head and won't be able to resell it. Multiple versions of the same character are fine with me, but different outfits are really the only reason to display all of them. Guess that's what happens when TDK fever hit me and I bought almost everything I saw!

Looks absolutely wonderful. I actually like the slicked back hair head the best. Something really creepy how that looks. The Street/IR head is really great as well - glad we are finally getting that M76 to go with the first Joker - not to mention the Glock as well. Hopefully Finchner's shotgun is included too - it would make more sense than the M76 with this figure so hopefully Hot Toys doesn't blow that.

Yeah, you guys can pick up that Sat Toys w/Fincher head and just outfit him with a shottie and you're good to go. Also can swap out heads with the BW and you have a Bruce too -- best of both worlds.

B, I don't see a shottie there, but with all the goodies that come with this figure, not a biggie IMO. Can prolly pick one up somewhere

I'm just glad that Ultimate Soldier M76 fiasco is over.

Maybe not as a complete outfit. I've seen several of them sold per-piece on ebay when the first Joker came out - mostly from Hong Kong sellers. They're not cheap too - especially the inner shirt with the hexagonal pattern and the purple overcoat.

Well here are some things mentioned from the article.

1. At the time of development of "version 1" the Hot Toys team didn't have a lot of material to work with. After seeing the movie Yulli and JC Hong saw room for improvement especially with the Joker's expression and posture. So when plans for the "Bank Robbery" Joker were brought up they decided to redo the sculpt. As a matter of fact they went for two expressions to better represent the Joker. This "serious" approach to present the Joker seems to contradict the Joker's very own "why so serious?" line, but it is to the benefit of collectors.

2. Release date in November (delays are normal with Hot Toys though so don't be surprised if it is bumped to December).

3. The neck post is done in a way so that the Joker's hunch can be accomplished.

Exactly what I'm thinking of doing, swapping my V1 outfit onto this body and head. Will make a great IR/MCI Joker. Use V1 Body for BR outfit and head with mask. Maybe the fabulous Les head w/Hair for Street Joker head swap.

Use V1 head for Custom Nurse Joker w/ wig.

There are still gumblings that HT went after Batman with a Mattel deal that issued them a Master License, if that is the case really then we could get all of those plus the previous incarnations as well.... a real Legacy of Batman line....


This "serious" approach to present the Joker seems to contradict the Joker's very own "why so serious?" line, but it is to the benefit of collectors.

I disagree with this statement especially considering that the line itself was an ironic comment whether in the story or to what was actually physically occurring. They did great by offering it up like they did.

Now if the neck post IS altered in a way and not just the body it'll pay to nab and additional neck post via eBay to fix the Joker v1, hopefully its not the entire body....although I got a Joker body and post for about $20 not counting shipping....

For me, Toys2 shipped out a Joker and Batman set on a Tuesday. Joe shipped out my Joker on a Thursday. Both arrived on Wednesday the following week so Joe had Toys2 beat out by two days, also Joe shipped FedEx while Toys2 utilizes UPS....I usually get anything shipped via FedEx earlier than UPS for some strange reason.

The V1 Joker's head is easily removable. It pops right off and back on.

Whoops, just read about the neck. It probably won't affect head, just the joint itself.

Reading it again, I think it may be that just the neck is sculpted like how Les did on his Joker head.

I hope we see Two-Face soon.

But don't stop there!

Scarecrow (with straight jacket)
Gordon
Harvey Dent (if not part of the Two-Face figure)
Ras
Bruce Wayne (millionaire playboy; give him the 'mine gun')
Alfred

All I did was a direct translation of the article and I'm sure they meant it in a humorous way as well (taking the time to sculpt two new heads--a "serious" approach to toy making). Why so serious?

And the neck post is connected with the head. The body is not altered it is just a standard true-type body.

The RPG isn't hard to find. The 21st Century Toys Modern Russian RPG set works perfectly. I've got one myself. Its not 100% accurate if I remember right, but we see so little of it, I honestly couldn't tell you it isn't accurate. I only know because my brother is a gun nut.

Nope, that Remington 870 is nowhere to be found.

And now that I know the bazooka is a Chinese version RPG (with a handle near the sight and no center grip) I just can't buy the Russian one. But to me the bazooka is too big a weapon, it kind of overpowers the figure. It's nice as an extra. But I really wanted that M76, and that we now get, which is cool. Plus the Glock with mag. Just need to borrow a silencer from my SS Bond figure, I think that should work.

Ok, we need Gordon and Two-Face now!!!!!!

Gordon is definitely a must. I'm surprised we haven't heard about a Two Face yet... but Michael Crawford even said in his review, the fact that DC is now distributed them probably means there are quite a few TDK figures coming from Hot Toys. :D

That means a Gordon too... I wonder who else they'll do.

I think both Caine and Freeman would be very well received, they are both beloved Actors and never been done before.

Scarecrow would be interesting, don't know how they'd tackle that, with removeable mask, also the straightjacket. I know Sovereign Studios is doing a Scarecrow kit with removeable fabric mask and 'ripped out" straightjacket... and I can't wait to get it. His Ras Sculpt is also amazing.

Wow, unbelievable figure! What can I say that everyone else hasn't already said a million times in this thread?

As cool as the V1 Joker is, I didn't pick him up and only just last week picked up the original suit Batman (thanks to Joe! :rock). I had planned on only buying Batman, but seeing this figure there's no way I can pass up displaying the Joker next to him peeling back that clown mask.

There goes my Christmas present.

Um, yeah, so...I'm gonna have to buy this. I'm a bit sad that this sculpt is so much better (obligatory "IMO" goes here) than the first release. Will need to switch the head on mine.

This thread is only 2 days old and already 20+ pages. Yeesh.

The only thing I will mention though is that the shirt could do with being a bit more blue and I hope the mask isn't too big. Other than that....wow! Comes with the M76 machine gun!!!! And grenades in the bag!

Count me in for two!

It does actually the more I look, think I just rushed through the pics to post I was so ecstatic!!!

The shirt should be more blue though, but I'm nitpicking. Looks gorgeous.

Is it December release on this does anyone know? What a Christmas if so. :)

Holy ^^^^! Now that's the Joker! Talk about a complete 180 from the first ^^^^ty sculpt! Wow! That sculpt is straight out of the interrogation room scene. The sculpt from the mask looks like it'll stay behind the mask for me.

Glad I waited on getting the V1 Joker. After seeing what HT did with Cannibal Jack after the initial 1st version, I simply had to wait and see an improved sculpt for an otherwise perfect Joker face sculpt. It was the only thing keeping me back from ordering that V1 in the first place. So happy HT nailed the likeness with this one...not that the first one is bad by any stretch.

First sculpt can still be awesome, but by the looks of it, this is even more so.

So are you never going to have the TDK Jokers 'proper' costumed version, just this one, out of interest?

:lol Well, don't make us feel bad about our $150+ investment.

Anyway, I do think the first HT Joker head sculpt is pretty much done for. The new Bank Robber figure comes with 2 freaking heads, so most people are gonna switch out the old head with the new (better) version and then use the included "clown mask head" with the Bank figure...at least, that's what I'm doing. Gonna have him posed just slightly lifting off the clown mask, enough to hide his patted-down hair.

MaulFan

Maybe it's the lighting of the shots, but I don't see interrogation scene in the sculpt, the mouth pose, none of it, 100% makes me think of the mob meeting but for the paint being more along the lines of the interrogation. Ledger was most the clown in the interrogation scene, just laughing it up as his puppets danced for him, but this face makes me think of the insane clown gangster that walked into the mob meeting. It'd badass either way.

I still think the v1 head has value, given the proper paint job as well. I think the way Les painted his is great and shows how nice the first head can be with a more film accurrate paint scheme. It's not a perfect likeness of Heath, but it's certainly not trash either. I'll be keeping mine. Joker's the new Jack Sparrow for me, no head is without it's worth and I'll add all the ones I like into my collection to diversify my options.

Since I don't display most of my 1/6 figures, all of my heads will just rest in the wings for photo opportunities when they arrise. Once I get this Joker on order, I'll have these 2 heads, the v1 head and Les' head in my Joker collection, plenty of options there. I'm having my Les head done in the clean, mob meeting look. Even though this v2 head is mob meeting in sculpt, it's not in paint so it'll be fun to have both options available.

:rotfl I will consider it! Seriously though, I never buy duplicates of figs, but TDK being my fave film and The Joker just being my fave ever character I deided what the hell! May have to sell off a couple of models, but well worth it.

I'm mincemeat if they announce Nurse or Honour Cop Joker and Gordon though! :horror (But I still hope they do!)

I actually considered buying duplicate BR Jokers for that reason too but I'm running out of display room as it is. If your gonna do it nows the time though. Once the first run at $149 is gone you can expect to pay at least $20 more on down the road.

What I did with V1 Joker was preorder off eBay as soon as poss, with abc-express, then bought the first 'in-hand' one when released off a seller I trust.

thanks

Cap'n Cook

People are often parting it out on eBay, but never complete outfit. For the cost you'd be better off buying the figure, then selling the base body and head on eBay.

If you sell the head quick, the prices may still be relatively high, before people everywhere see this!

Yes, but again i would say buy the whole BR figure and sell the parts you don't want. You would prob get a fair bit for the mask and shirt and duffel bag, as basically people who would want a 'bash' would just need a suit for a half good fig and would desire these parts.

Plus, you would have the accurate machine gun that reg Joker uses. :)
