Hot Toys MMS DX..."Ultimate Joker" rumour!



By now most 1/6th scale action-figure collector must have heard about Hot Toys' plans to release the Police Officer Joker aka Heath's maniacal clown-persona sans make-up. Released under the MMS DX brand (another division of Hot Toys I supposed), these new lines of 1/6th action-figures are supposed to be 'super-realistic' up to the point where you'd swear they've actually shrunk the respective actors/actresses down instead of making the figures out of plastic/resins! Heheh...anyway, more on that on Hot Toys' newsletter.

But the 'real' buzz on the internet seems to be focusing on the Joker picture seen at the background of the picture of the Cop Joker above. Ok, in case anyones misses it, take a look at this next comparison picture and we'll see why collectors around the world are going bonkers with this sheer unconfirmed rumour....

Thanks to my fellow blogger friend Razman, who's provided me with the link to a forum where collectors actually discussed this yet-to-be confirmed rumour about the re-release of the "Classic" Joker from the 2008 movie. Another fellow blogger, Shaun even calls this the "Ultimate Joker" which is by far, the coolest moniker for this supposedly "last but the best" movie Joker figure to be produced by Hot Toys.
Speculations have been flying all over the internet. Among others.....Will Hot Toys repackage the extra-head (with make-up on) and a revamped purple coat together with the Cop Joker? Will these 2 be packaged separately? Will the new MMS DX line be priced in tandem in Enterbay's FoF Bruce Lee (I can imagine the number of people selling their souls already!)? Is Hot Toys bundling these 2 in a single deluxe box, hence collectors will be forced to pay a 'deluxe' price? Phewww...simply too many. But one thing certain is that Hot Toys had mentioned implicitly that the rumoured Ultimate Joker will definitely make up for those who had missed the first two release (purple-suit Joker and BR Joker).

Looks like the ultimate Joker is going to be equipped with bombs to emulate the Mob meeting scene at the beginning of the TDK movie. That's pretty sweet as the previous 1st version of the Joker came rather plain with only his pocket knife. Whatever it may come with, this is one helluva figure and I'm sure pre-order quotas will be snapped up the moment Hot Toys drop any slightest hint that this particular figure is a 'go'. So stay alert and stay tuned.....

I always knew I missed the chance to get the 1st Joker for a reason... :p
