Even the Joker might not have predicted a world so chaotic that two San Diego Comic-Cons in a row would have to be cancelled. But summer toy exclusives, like the citizens of Gotham, keep going regardless. It’s all part of the plan. And even a decade-plus on, Heath Ledger‘s take on the clown prince of crime remains the favorite cinematic incarnation of most comics fans. That, plus the fact that Jack Nicholson charges too much for his likeness and Joaquin Phoenix’s version never fought Batman, makes him a perennial favorite among toy companies. And Beast Kingdom‘s new exclusive captures his most memorable scene.
Recreating the interrogation room in which Batman’s bad cop routine fails to extract the necessary information, this 1/9 scale figure includes a desk, chair, lamp, and additional accessories for the Batman figure in the same scale. (See link at the bottom of this page.) About eight inches tall, the Joker will scale with retro-action figures from companies like NECA and Mego. But he’s way higher-end than both. Boasting 28 points of articulation, and a fabric outfit with worn-in look, this figure unbalances the Ledger. He includes two head sculpts, multiple hands, and a bonus head and EMP rifle for Batman with glow-in-the-dark features.
