Depending on whom you ask Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” is either the greatest or the second-greatest comic book story of all-time, so there’s a lot of expectations involved in adapting it to a movie. More

Sideshow Collectibles proudly presents the first entry in our much anticipated DC Comics Sixth Scale collection, The Joker. Sorry Bats, it’s going to be a bad day.
Inspired by classic comic portrayals, including his 1988 appearance in the fan favorite, The Killing Joke, The Joker Sixth Scale figure was designed and crafted with Sideshow’s trademark attention to detail. Two heads are included, each capturing different eerie and unsettling expressions of the Clown Prince of Crime’s deranged deviousness. Clothed in a perfectly plum, impeccably tailored and trademark suit, and accompanied by a vast array of diabolical accessories, Batman’s arch rival is ready to wreak havoc and mayhem on the citizens of Gotham City.

If you’ve been following me at all over these last seven months you know I’m a major fan of action figures/collectibles and one of my absolute favorite companies is Hot Toys, which does nothing short of cranking out the absolute best, most film-accurate depictions of film characters. See their work on Batman, Bane , the Joker, Lt. Gordon and the Bat-pod
Today they unveiled their latest masterpiece. The 1/4th scale The Dark Knight Rises Batman figure. Its release is set up to tie into “The Dark Knight Rises,” but this is really a Batman compilation figure of “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises”. More

I wrote this years ago obviously, but my opinions on it are pretty much the same so I likely won’t have too much to add here. I just finished watching it in actual preparation for “The Dark Knight Rises,” which would just about have to be the greatest movie ever to top this one for me.
“The Dark Knight” is a phenomenal masterpiece whose creators aren’t content with simply making a great comic book movie but craft one that transcends the genre to become one of the best films this decade. More

“The Dark Knight” is one of my Top 10 all-time movies. Everything about it is great from the script, directing, scenes and of course the acting. Most people rightfully think first and foremost about Heath Ledger’s amazing performance as Joker. He was so incredible that Oscar voters had to abandon their normal pretentious attitude and give him a Best Supporting Actor — the first such merit for any comic book film.
Hot Toys has no competition on the 12″ collectible front and to remind everyone of that, they’ve shown the full version of their Joker 2.0.
If you didn’t know any better would you be able to tell it’s a figure?
