Where Batman goes, the Joker’s not far behind.
It makes sense that after previewing the Arkham Knight action figure for Batman, Hot Toys would want to bring out a Joker as well. However, as [SPOILERS for the Arkham games] Joker bought the big one at the end of Arkham City, they decided to go back a couple of games for the sixth scale Batman: Arkham Asylum Joker action figure. However, much like the Bat, the Joker’s pretty loaded. Let’s take a look at what we’re getting.
