Joker with Smith & Wesson M76

This is Hot Toys Joker (Heath Ledger) about to face Batman (Christian Bale) and his Batpod on the streets of Gotham, after Batman thwarts his attempt to kill Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) and upended Joker's massive trailer truck.

Made possible by combining two Jokers, the first Joker released by Hot Toys in his Joker outfit and the headsculpt from the second release, plus the Smith & Wesson M76, of course. Much prefer the second head sculpt to the first.

The face-off scene between the Joker and Batman on the streets of Gotham is reminiscent of the original "Batman" movie by Tim Burton (released in 1989) where the Joker, played by Jack Nicholson, faces off with the Batman (Michael Keaton) in his Batplane

"Ooooh. Wanna play? Come on!" when the Batpod charges towards the Joker

Now bring on the nurse's uniform (notice that Harvey Dent/Aaron Eckhart's face is not scarred as it should be)

Check out pictures of the 12-inch Heath ledger Nurse Joker HERE

They better not make the nurse uniform the third version, if you know what I'm saying...

I love the Joker figures. The headsculpt is so impressive you can just about picture him smacking his lips in that imitable way of his.

hey michelle, saw on your blog you bought the two jokers as well (don't know why but the link i put to your blog doesn't seem to work on my end :( ] GREAT choice - agree with you about the second set of sculpts. They're absolutely STUNNING!!

you also mentioned Tim getting Iron Man. does that mean he's now been turned to the dark side - ha! ha!

The feed thing is my fault, sorry... I was such a noob with the feed thing. But it *should* work now.

Wahaha! I wish, but Iron Man is probably going to be an exception with the current 12" line up. It's for the best, I suppose, unless we can afford a really big place like you and Daisy. :P

Hot Toys Iron Man is certainly a good enough reason as he's even better than the statue. MUST GET!!

I'm sure you & Tim will be able to get your own beautiful place in due time :) it took years before we found our own little haven ;p

the nurse's uniform looks so funny! I also think that this can be made into a new version! It must be very popular as well!
