I am going to have to go with the Nurse Joker. For me I think it the most memorable of the two and really let us see the Joker's true potential for brinnging chaos and setting off the balance of Gotham.:D

Rock83
10-14-2008, 04:16 AM
I want both,but if we need to choose 1 i have to choose Police,since we have 3 sculpts allready with Paint,so this one would be a nice add to the Joker collection.

I'd like to see one without makeup as well. The exposed joints for the nurse Joker wouldn't look as nice. I do agree that the hospital scene was more memorable though.

out of the two I would choose police joker. Seems a more " different figure ".
I would probably end up ordering both though if it came about .

Morbo
10-14-2008, 06:02 AM
i think the police version if I had to choose, just because, as Rock83 said, there are already 3 painted heads.

neither version, I would prefer a smiling joker that's movie accurate.

Police version, you can make a nurse one yourself easy, get a proper nurse barbie and use head number 2. Kill barbie and put her hair on joker etc etc.

10-14-2008, 07:58 AM
I'd probably buy both but the only reason I might vote in this poll would be to make both seem equally popular to hot toys thereby improving their odds of being made. So whose doing worse in the poll?

Ideally if its one or the other then an extra headsculpt will come with it so as to broaden the range of facial expressions we have - a laughing Joker being the most obvious.

lol...i'm in the same boat. although i'd be SUPER critical of another version. we have the regular one that is not the best sculpt, then we get the bank robber with the better sculpt (lame outfit IMO), next they would really have to shine with the third version of the figure.

10-14-2008, 03:57 PM
I would have to go with Nurse Joker but as a said in another thread it would have to have a truly amazing sculpt of the Joker grinning and even then I'd probably just buy the head on ebay. I'd much rather have Scarecrow or Ras at the moment before another Joker.

aussieinnyc
10-14-2008, 04:05 PM
I'm in the "neither" camp too. Give me Scarecrow, Gordon and Alfred (preferably in that order!) before another Joker. The only reason I'm glad they did the BR Joker before any of these characters is that it gives us a much more accurate likeness.

I will love to have a Nurse Joker, but just like someone who stated of the first page of this thread, Hot Toys don't really need to make for us to have it. Bank Robber Joker comes with Two head sculpts, 1 with the hair down the other with the hair combed to the back. Instead of paying another $150.00+, just spend about $25.00 on a HT True Type Body, shop around the net for a 1/6 scale nurse outfit, sneakers you can get at Toys2 for about $10 bucks and cut off some doll hair and dye it and your good. Put the "wig" on the sculpt with the hair combed backed and your good to go. It will probally cost you only $50.00 or less to make a very good Nurse Joker utilizing the Bank Robber Joker...

Who's going to use their second BR headsculpt to make a custom police officer joker? I need to see how that works ASAP.

None. I'd rather have Gordon.

Seditionary
10-15-2008, 12:24 AM
good question...I don't know if i could afford more jokers. I got the bank robber joker on pre-order and I plan on getting the other one to swap the head. And Im obsessed with two face...so I need to have that too. I kinda wanna make that first edition joker head into a police disguise joker, as I've done a custom or two in my time and I'd like to try a 1:6 out. I'd use the BR Joker head for the regular joker, and leave the slicked hair smile face on the Bank robber figure.

Anyone know if that first joker will be harder to get later on, or should I get on that sooner than later?

he does smile in the film a handful of times
when he was laughing while driving the truck
when he lets Rachel fall
when he's hanging upside down especially
when he says hi to Two-Face
and the images above
some of his smiles are creepy enough to generate interest

if anyone ever took the Bank Robber sculpt, Version 2 head
and made a GOOD re-sculpt with yellow teeth
i'd pay top dollar for that :joy

love that idea
but has Hot Toys ever actually done anything like that?
or any company really?
it'd be great to get great accurate clothing, like for Joker
such as the correct shades of purple and the orange inner lining
and Cop, Nurse outfits and his hands with the broken nails

Hmmm, that'd definitely be a way to sell more tickets - a lot of people who might not normally go would probably want to see if the "new actor" did as good as/better than Heath (probably the same people who went to see TDK because of the circumstances surrounding his death). It would be a gutsy move on Nolan's part to recast the role, though. I imagine there would be a lot of people who believe the role should only be played by Ledger and who would be upset by a recast, likewise it would be a brave actor who would take on the role - having to walk the line between impersonation and taking the character too far from what was established in TDK.

I actually wouldn't be at all surprised if Ledger played an important, albeit minor role in the next film through the use of archival footage and digital manipulation, much in the same way Brando was featured in Superman Returns. That would allow Nolan to still make use of the character while at the same time not angering fans with a new actor.

They recast Rachel. Recasting is part of making sequels. I would agree that Heath gave a definitive performance, but they could recast it but make it like he may or may not be the original Joker - like the "Joker" is a state of mind. Since his origins are always supposed to be mysterious this is one character it might work with. You just start the film with the death of the Joker in Arkham. But he pops up looking different in the course of the film.

That could work, but the way Nolan works there will probably be 3 new villains instead. A mob boss, a main villain, and a side villain. Like BB had Falcone, Scarecrow, and Ra's al Ghul and TDK had Maroni, Joker, and Two-Face. A Joker cameo would be cool where like you only saw the back of his head or something.

True, but there was not the same level of emotions involved in recasting Rachel. As for a whole new character assuming the Joker persona, I guess that could work, but it would be a gutsy move to show any version of that character not played by Ledger.

I take back what I said about creating a digital performance for the next film though. Nolan spoke in a pretty negative way about the digital work done to create Oliver Reed's performance in Gladiator, so I now don't think he'd go down that route.

I'm not sure CG would hold up anyways. We've never seen any CG humans up close enough, they're always further away or in motion. It would work fine to have a new villain, but I think it would be more successful to cast a new person as a new Joker--as long as they're mysterious enough.

I scoffed at those who wanted the Bank Robber Joker figure even had it not included the superior head sculpt just to have a figure from that mere 6 minute scene, yet I can't wait to have a great looking nurse Joker, myself. I suppose that makes me a hypocrite. :wacky

That eBay set looks great! It's not entirely accurate from what I could tell. The belt is really wrong. It should be slightly off color (not white) with silver fasteners in the middle connecting the ends together with another metal loop to hold back the excess. The skirt is also slightly too long as mentioned. The mask's elastic bands should loop around the ears but it's obvious why they don't appear to and were probably not made to do. Also, I'm curious where they got the name "Ada" from on the name tag? I've seen this scene numerous times and could never make out anything, as if the tag were blank. It should also be wider. The pen was actually silver in color but did have a dark colored clip. Finally, the Joker has make-up on his fingertips as well as long nails. Yeah, I know. :duh

But for crying out loud, the entire set costs $37! For what's offered that's a steal! The nurse uniform actually looks pretty accurate, criticisms aside, even the hue of pink used! The Harvey Dent sticker seems spot on as well as the rest of the outfit, from the black socks to the white, kind of clownish looking shoes. The detonator is wrong, but aside from the green light that's clearly visible in the shot, it hardly matters as you'd have to really look carefully and repeatedly to make out the details of the device. What little can be discerned.

Anyway, it sounds like I'm ripping on this set, but I'm not! For all that's being offered, this is a must buy! (It especially helps if you're not ****. :p )

I love both police and nurse. But what's important to me is that they make the HS with a better expression. I'd like the next one with an HS that expresses the character's maniac nature. One with open mouth laughing would be great.

They're done with it now though aren't they? I think its a pity if thats the case, I hope I'm wrong.

I really think we need at least one more Joker with a laughing face sculpt..and commissioner gordon.

I think they should recast the Joker, have an actor play him in the third film, and then in the forth have a completely different actor play him, it would add a certain dynamic to it.

Sorry Heath, but Batman can't live on without Joker.

You could repaint the second head from the BR Joker to make a custom police Officer Joker fairly easily.

To me it would seem like more of a pain to make a Police Joker then a Nurse one. But thats just me.

The only setback is the long skirt. I just alter the length of the skirt a 1/4" shorter to make it look more perfectly fit.

Hasn't this been discussed before? I kinda like one of the earlier answer from one of the member here, the guy said that it's because the seller gave too obvious a name for the item. Instead of saying Hot Toys Joker Nurse Costume (for example), he should've named it Nurse Costume for Joker or something of the sort.

so, is Hot Toys truly done with their Dark Knight line?

but does that just mean they're putting aside the line, and coming back to it later
or have they pretty much wrapped it up?

i'm thinking of having my Joker suit customized
replacing the inner linings with the orange one from DCD's Joker coat
and figuring a way to transfer the snaps that close the vest from DCD's vest to my Hot Toys, getting rid of the velcro
and i will royally pissed if Hot Toys releases an Ultimate Joker that has a 100% accurate suit
i'll be happy that we'd all have a perfect outfit, but angry that i payed for a custom that would be bleh compared to theirs

but i agree, Scarecrow should have been done
i've seen some customs, they just can't capture the mask

Darth_Fatso
11-29-2008, 09:54 AM
I know I've said I'd probably never get another unless the headsculpt really wow'd me but I misght consider putting down some dough for an "ulimate" Joker which could be like a limited or exclusive peice with a new grinning head sculpt from Yulli, possible paint work by JC Hong and more accurate clothing which include lighter trench coat, more blueish suit, vest with buttons instead of velcro, sligtly more accurate shirt with a collar that fully goes around the neck and more accurate tie and socks. The acessories would include the following.

Switchblade
Glock 18 possibly with removible silencer
Sawed Off Remington 870 shotgun
S&W machine gun
Chinese RPG
Grenades that can be attached under the trench coat
Joker cards
Alternate dirty flesh colored hands for the interrogation scene

If HT made a Joker like that I'd definantly be game on getting one even if it did cost a little more.

Dally
11-29-2008, 10:13 AM
With all of those accessories, I suppose that could justify getting another one. That would be cool.

blakus939

''Grenades that can be attached under the trench coat''
actually that gives me an idea. if we got another joker, i'd love one on the mob boss scene, where he opens the jacket to show the grenades, the string around his finger/thumb, and with a smiling headsculpt. we SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO need a smiling headsculpt. they've nailed the heath likeness too much to not give us the iconic smile i reckon. would also be a slightly different paint scheme etc, but i suppose the main figure would be 'mainly' identical to the V1. still though, some variation on the jacket with the grenades setup.

what shoes did you get for the Nurse outfit?
they look more accurate to the onscreen shoes
the one that guys sells with it is just a repaint of the Joker shoes
and odd that he gave it black socks, in the film, he just wears the same socks he wears with his purple suit

I've replayed that scene over and over again and the socks appear black. In the image, however, it looks as though there might be some bluish squares, but that could be the result of image artifacts, or lighting creating a pareidolia effect. Then again, there just might be some patterns on his socks. We might just have to wait for Dec. 9th to find out for sure.

Wow! Great image! Thanks!

Yep, I'm not seeing the yellowish-orange in the pic, but they do appear to be his purple suit's socks. I won't be buying another pair of Hot toys socks, though, since the checkering is too small. The brights appear too overwhelming as a result, I think even if someone were to fill in the dark blues with black.

I can also see that the shoes sold in the figure outfit and accessory set are wrong, as others mentioned. They appear to be nurse slip-ons with straps in the film. Shoot! That means more work for me.

Thanks again for the pic! Now if someone could just find a prop image of the detonator used in the movie, I'd be a happy man. Well, I don't really get happy. Happier? Somewhat more... well something.

I highly doubt it. (Although would be amazing). It appears he used a cast of a Jet Li head and resculpted it.

Looks very good, just needs to be a little smoother as people have said and the scarring not as coloured and it would be amazing. The hat is incredible too.
