The Dark Knight Premium Format Joker Figure is Here
Don’t Miss Out on the Exclusive Dark Knight Premium Format Joker Figure
Details have finally been revealed regarding the new Dark Knight Premium Format Joker Figure made by Sideshow Collectibles in partnership with DC comics. The statue will resemble the Joker from 2008’s The Dark Knight as portrayed by Heath Ledger in his Oscar-winning performance.
The statue will be 19 inches tall (a bit under 50 cm), and feature a tailored fabric costume. Both the statue and the costume almost perfectly resemble the character from the movie, with his green/yellow greasy hair, makeup lines on his forehead, including every part of the suit visible in the movie, starting with a tie, a shirt, a vest, a jacket, a heavy purple coat and gloves. A gun is featured in his left hand while his calling card can be seen in his right hand.
A Sideshow Exclusive edition of the Joker will also be released, featuring a special interchangeable hand holding a detonator, made in great detail, recognizable from various scenes throughout the movie. The statue will be standing on a base representing the destroyed city of Gotham, also made in great detail, and featuring fire coming out of pavement cracks. The quality of the statue is unquestionable which comes as no surprise considering that 10 artists worked on creating this masterpiece.
Pre-ordering begins on Thursday, the 3rd of March, and though no official release date has been set, Sideshow Collectibles estimates a probable release between March – May 2017. The price is set at $499.99, for both the regular and the exclusive edition, with the option of various payment plans.
