I am a huge fan of the original Hot Toys The Dark Knight Joker MMS DX, and they’ve just revealed the second version, which they’re calling Joker 2.0. I can’t tell if the PERS head is changed from the original, but the sequel will come with an alternate laughing head, a bunch of other accessories (including a desk with magic trick pencil – uh oh!) and upgraded cloth goods, which are described in this interview with Hot Toys costume artist Kato.
The Hot Toys DX Joker Collectible Figure has been very well-received since its launch in 2009. In view of fans’ expectation, Hot Toys is proud to present his advanced version – The DX Joker 2.0 Collectible Figure from The Dark Knight movie, specially crafted based on the image of Heath Ledger as The Joker in the movie, highlighting the highly detailed head sculpts crafted with the latest sculpting and painting technique by our chief Korean artists Yulli & JC. Hong and the costume customized by the extraordinaire 1/6th scale figure costume artist Kato, which best fits his advanced body. The Joker 2.0 is definitely a must-have for fans! The DX Joker 2.0 Collectible Figure is truly movie-accurate, equipped with our patented Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS), highly detailed accessories and weapons.
