Hot Toys Deluxe Joker Details Revealed

Earlier news reports that Hot Toys would be releasing two new Jokers from The Dark Knight were only partially correct.  Hot Toys has indeed introduced a new deluxe format Joker, but it will feature interchangeable parts that allow you to display the Joker in either his Gotham City Police uniform or in an improved costume featuring his bomb-laden overcoat.

In addition, the figure will feature a new system for poseable eyes.  I’ve not collected figures in this format before, but this may be the first!

The debut of MMSDX series is THE JOKER from the Dark Knight movie:

  • Hot Toys True Type figure with over 35 points of articulation
  • Stands approximately 12 inches / 31 cm tall
  • Dressed in Gotham City police suit, hat, Gotham City cop badge and shoes, the characters wears for assassination scene in the movie.
  • Weapons-M1 Garand Rifle
  • Additional costume: Improved & movie-accurate Joker costume of an overcoat, sport coat, vest, shirt, tie, pants, belt, socks and shoes, with grenades rig and suspenders
  • Weapons and accessories: Five pieces of grenades, knife, pistol and Joker cards
  • Seven Interchangeable posing hands
  • An interchangeable and new make-up Joker head featured with Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) and colored Translucent Iris.
  • Deluxe figure stand with LED lights

**About Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS)

PERS is a brand new technique applies to Hot Toys MMSDX figurines, special features include:

  • Unique designed eyeballs with colored Translucent Iris
  • Simultaneous Positionable Eyeball Function
