The next Joker to be released by Hot Toys (this will be the third) is the MMS DX 01 - The Dark Knight - 1/6th scale The Joker collectible figure from their Movie Masterpiece line. Like I said in the previous post, the Joker is getting a lot more attention than the Batman!
Hot Toys is proud to announce their brand new product line – MMS DX (Movie Masterpiece Deluxe) which features a newly developed technique on the eyes of their collectible - Parallel Eyeball Rolling System (PERS) with Colored Translucent Iris (Enterbay already did something similar with their Bruce Lee). The debut of the line is THE JOKER from the Dark Knight movie which will include 1 x Hot Toys True Type figure with over 35 points of articulation, l fully dressed Joker in Gotham City police suit, hat, Gotham City cop badge and shoes (as seen and worn by the character for assassination scene in the movie) and his M1 Garand Rifle with additional costume: Improved & movie-accurate Joker costume comprised an overcoat, sports coat, vest, shirt, tie, pants, belt, socks and shoes PLUS grenades rig and suspenders.
