Comes with the customary slip case cover but this isn't Hot Toys' usual slip case cover. They chose to deviate from a movie still shot which is actually quite refreshing.
The back of the slip case cover shows the actual product shots
Box cover also doesn't show actual Joker
Basic Joker out of box with his bank robber outfit consisting of shirt, jacket, trousers with nice leather belt with buckle and shoes, no socks this time though
When Hot Toys released their first Joker, I didn't think that Hot Toy's Heath Ledger Joker head sculpt could get any better. I'm so glad to be proven wrong. What a fantastic head sculpt, true to the character!
Hot Toys Bank Robber Joker's accessories include: one bank robber's bag for putting his smoke and fragmentation grenades, the Bank Robber Joker head sculpt, clown mask, extra pair of gloved hands, Smith & Wesson M76 submachine gun with foldable stock and removable magazine, Glock 18 pistol with removable 33 rd ammo clip, deck of joker cards and stack of dollar bills
The Smith & Wesson M76 (Originally developed by S&W for the US Navy during the Vietnam War after Sweden imposed an arms embargo thereby depriving the SEALs of the Carl Gustaf M/45 (Swedish K) SMG, the M76 saw limited combat service in Vietnam and eventually S&W ceased production of the original weapon in 1974) is used by The Joker, during his faceoff against Batman in the streets of Gotham and not in the bank.
The bag contains the smoke and fragmentation grenades neatly packed so as to prevent them from rolling about. The Joker certainly doesn't want things to blow up unexpectedly.
Hot Toys Bank Robber Joker with his clown mask. I liked that the mask is soft, rubbery and flexible. It fits well over his face and you can see his eyes through the eye slits.
Happy: So why do they call him "The Joker"?
Dopey: I heard he wears make-up.
Dopey: Yeah, to scare people. You know, war paint.
One of the earliest teaser shots of Joker from The Dark Knight has him standing by the sidewalk waiting for his ride to the bank, carrying his bag and mask, with his back towards us.

Hot Toys gave us not one but two GREAT sculpts of Heath Ledger as The Joker with this release
"Why so serious?" "Let’s put a smile on that face!"
