Joker’s Arkham Asylum figure revealed
I’m still not quite sure what to make of The Joker’s look from Suicide Squad. I’m willing to give Jared Leto’s take the benefit of the doubt though I haven’t been impressed from the trailer teasers. Hot Toys is banking collectors are going to want as much Suicide Squad figures as they can make. And starting with Arkham Asylum version of Joker makes sense.
This Arkham Asylum version looks impressive. It’s possible this look translates better in this high-end style figure form than on the big screen. I definitely get more of an obvious Joker vibe from the figure even with the tattoos and grill.
Hahahaha…in DC Comics’ upcoming blockbuster film, Suicide Squad, the new portrayal of the infamous The Joker has captured many fans attention since the character’s first reveal! As a secret government agency recruits and imprison supervillians to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency and saving the world from an unknown but powerful threat, fans are anxious to see the Joker’s role in the epic summer hit!
Today Sideshow and Hot Toys are very excited to present the first official Sixth Scale Figure of The Joker portrayed by Academy Award winner Jared Leto in Suicide Squad. This Arkham Asylum version of Batman’s nemesis will be a 2016 Toy Fair Exclusive!
The movie-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on Jared Leto’s image as The Joker in his Arkham Asylum outfit in the movie. It features a newly sculpted head sculpt, special paint applications to capture The Joker’s unqiue appearance, finely tailored straitjacket with weathering effects, and a diamond shaped figure stand that includes a specially designed backdrop of Arkham Asylum.
Do not miss the chance to get your hands on the first official The Joker Sixth Scale Figure from Suicide Squad today!
Suicide Squad hits theaters Aug. 5. I’m getting more excited about it especially with a seemingly weak July movie slate.
