I think it is still safe to say, years later, we are still deeply affected by Heath Ledger's portayal of The Joker before his tragic and untimely death. Maybe one of the most menacing and freaky characters ever put on film, it is a character and portrayal that will forever be remembered for just how chilling and frenzied it all was.
It may be years later, but NECA has crafted a finely tuned Joker collectible (please do not call it an action figure. Anything that can cost upwards of two hundred dollars is no longer a toy) and it bares a freakish similarity to the character we all knew and feared. NECA is not one to deliver aything less than a stunning collectible, so this Joker should come as no surprise to anyone. But still, just imagining that face peering at me from somewhere on the shelf in my office gives me the willies. The company announced the final packaging design for this fine Q scale figure today -and it's impressive.
Please note, a price point has not been announced yet. But expect to pay anywhere from $75.00 to $150.00 for the piece. Remember kids, NECA makes art, not toys. Keep in mind, a lot of the stuff they sell ARE toys, and I'm simply saying that to justify my own inevitable purchase of this Joker figure when it comes out this fall. -via ToplessRobot
