    Hot Toys 1/6 - Suicide Squad - Joker (Batman Imposter) up for pre-order!


    _______________
    The longstanding feud between Batman and the Joker has been the dramatic core in Batman lore since the very beginning. In the Suicide Squad movie, the two have an oh-so-brief encounter - the first in the recently established DC Extended Universe - leaving fans to speculate and dream about what it would be like when they inevitably clash in future outings.

    In the spirit of the movie, the designers at Hot Toys let their imagination run wild, and the result was an intriguing alternative vision of the Joker impersonating Batman, now beautifully realized in the form of a sixth scale collectible figure as an exclusive item only available in select markets!

    The highly stylistic collectible figure is sophisticatedly crafted based on Jared Leto's image as the Joker from the movie, clad in a specially designed, never-before-seen Batsuit in the Joker's signature purple and green colors and decorated with his unique tattoo prints. It also features a masked head sculpt revealing the Joker's sinister grin, 2 blood-stained batarangs, a flag gun, and a Suicide Squad-themed figure stand with character backdrop.

    This unique Joker/Batman collectible figure will be the jewel in the crown of your Hot Toys collection!



















    $264.99

      That price is almost as big of a joke as this figure.

      Pretty much. 229.00 would consider it, but $264? Come on.

      The price is a bit high. I understand the extra work they put into the suit, but they essentially are repainting an existing toy with minor differences. Personally, I don't feel like having it priced more than Batman feels fair, but I do see this as being an "Exclusive" limited edition that was made to recoup costs elsewhere perhaps. Much like their often overpriced power-pose figures.

      I do not mind that this wasn't in the movie. As many have mentioned, it still a cool idea to those that dig it. I know I like it, I don't feel like it took away from them making other characters since it seemed like they'd only cover the 3 main stars. Would feel weirder (than it already is) if they started making others and never finish the whole team.

      I actually wouldn't mind some original HT variants as long as they complete the characters they committed to originally (Still hoping for a Marvel's Yellow Jacket).

      I will be ordering this. It'll keep its value, if not be worth more in a year.

      I like it. Not enough to pay $264. Like others I don't care if it's in a movie or not. Hot Toys mostly makes things from movies, but I buy them because of comics or I like the way they look. Can't find this quality in any comic version figures.

      That price sucks. SS probably adding more to it so their crazy ass price on Lobo looks fair.

      Damn, had this guy been the same as Batman at $235 I would jump but that's steep.

      I'm a sucker for this- plus it'll probably be big $$$ when it sells out- A JOKER Batman I may get it

      So tempting honestly. Why couldn't the $20 coupon be used on this? Maybe when I get Knightmare they'll give another coupon but this could certainly be gone by then. Hmmm.

      Not screen accurate, so it's not for me. I bought enough Batman variants in my youth. Don't want to do it again, let alone at this price point. Hard to believe Hot Toys is making three different bat-releases I'm passing on between this one, blue West Batman, and black chrome Batman.

      Good thing I have plenty of others to look forward to ('66 Joker, Bvs Batman, purple and asylum Jokers, Harley, and Deadshot).

      I get it if most customers prefer movie accurate action figures, but why do people get mad when HT goes outside of the movie universe to create a figure?
