1/4 scale Heath Ledger Joker from Batman: The Dark Knight is available now

The late Heath Ledger’s Academy Award-winning performance in 2008’s Batman: The Dark Knight was nothing less than iconic. The Joker was quintessential in representing the themes of anarchy, chaos and escalation that were so key to The Dark Knight‘s eventual rise to legendary film status. Now, in stunning detail, comes this 18-inch, 1/4 scale Joker true to both Ledger’s cinematic appearance in the Dark Knight trilogy and DC’s collaborative imagining realized with Christopher Nolan.

NECA has stocked up this Joker offering with interchangeable hands and weapons accessories, including a knife, pistol and machine gun to foil Batman’s endeavours at every turn. The realistic rendering of the weaponry will definitely be a treat for avid collectors. Critics are already raving about the quality of this piece. Grab him today!

New from Hot Toys: Hellboy, Edward Scissorhands and The Joker

As a BIG fan of both Mike Mignola and Guillermo Del Toro, I fell in love with the Hellboy movies and, naturally, the figures. Del Toro’s work has led to some really cool aesthetic choices in the toys and they’re on display in the Sideshow figures, the Mezco figures and especially the new figure (above) from Sideshow and Hot Toys. Standing 12” tall, the Hot Toys Hellboy features an amazing likeness to Ron Perlman’s portrayal of the demonic hero and comes with a ton of film-accurate accessories and 28 points of articulation. It’s a great showpiece for any fan and is already in-stock and orderable!

The massive success of The Dark Knight and the tragic loss of actor Heath Ledger has created a huge demand for memorabilia from the film. And now, Hot Toys has created a new Joker figure capturing his look from one scene in the film: The Gotham City Police Joker. With his makeup off and his scars on display, the Joker blends into the memorial service crowd in a chaotic bid to eliminate Gotham’s mayor. It was a jarring moment to see the Clown Prince of Crime stripped bare, yet with all the malice, and has been faithfully reproduced here. It doesn’t ship until December, but you can pre-order now to make sure you get yours.

Now available and in-stock, check out this Hot Toys Edward Scissorhands. From the film that truly made both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp comes a 12” rendering of the eponymous young man. In his eyes is all the sorrow and beauty of the film, and in his body all the exquisite detail that gave the movie its signature look, straight from the mind of Burton. For fans of the film, it’s an amazing addition to their collection.
