"Listen to this, Mulligan, I'll read it to you. It says: I have escaped from Arkham Asylum and revenge will be sweet! Free once again to pursue my dishonorable profession. If you try to play your hand against mine, you will find the Joker is wild, signed, The Joker."

Jakks Pacific Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Batman Jokers Wild Big Figs FigureA nod to Suicide Squad but actually a Dawn of Justice product (ask the licensors), Jokers Wild Batman was something Jakks Pacific brought to us at Entertainment Earth (I work there) as a possible exclusive - we thought it'd be a solid fit for Comic-Con and it did pretty dang well. Of course, you can order Batman v Superman: Jokers Wild Batman - the Convention Exclusive from Entertainment Earth if units are still available. The gimmick - like last year's duo - was to do some big, nicer, more decked-out collectory figures. If you've been buying Hikari vinyl figures, you get the idea - the same big 20-inch Batman you've seen in stores (if it didn't sell out, it's quite popular) was cast in white and basically defaced by the Joker. It's not based on anything specific, but I saw the design and thought "Wow. That's nuts." Now I have one in my office.

Jakks Pacific Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice Batman Jokers Wild Big Figs Figure

It's cheaper than designer toys, but more expensive than the basic figure in stores thanks to the lower 3,000-piece run and enhanced deco. A long time ago I floated the idea of blind-box designer astromech droids and blank R2-D2s for customizers, which needless to say never materialized under Hasbro, so I'm a fan of this kind of thing - what can you do to make a robot or a superhero really different? Well, this is it - it's covered in tags. "The Joker" signed his work while dipping ol' pointy ears' hands in red and green. The defacing of a hypothetical statue added "HAHAHA" all over in purple, a black jester, and a spade in addition to a circled J on his chest - a nice nod to traditional superhero design. The eyes are Xed out, and there's a Joker grin slathered over the bat-face. What's more, the backside of the figure has even more markings which you won't see until you pop him out of the box.

A simple - if distorted - Joker self-portrait on the back of the cape came out really nicely. The paint is dripping, and I almost wish I could see more of these so I can see if they're all the same or just very similar. The black eyes and tooth caps orbit a blood-red grin, with a few green dots representing the character's famous green hair. Of course, I haven't even mentioned yet that this is an action figure, not a statue - the hips, shoulders, neck, and wrists are all jointed. You probably will want to leave him in the pose in which he was boxed, mostly so the tagging lines up and looks swell. Bruce's quilted suit is still present, the detail almost obliterated by ghostly white plastic. You really can't see how good the Batfleck sculpt is here, but it's here - this is the new movie figure and not the comic sculpt.

You don't need one of these. It's not essential, but man is it cool. I love how utterly nuts this is for a major toy company like Jakks Pacific, as I don't think I've seen much like this out of a Hasbro or a Mattel (except maybe in Hot Wheels?) - the utter desecration of one of DC Comics' most famous characters as a collectible could serve as a metaphor for the cinematic franchise at the moment, or as something as a palette cleanser for whatever happens next. Obviously it's not Jared Leto's Joker because there would probably be used contraception or a dead cat stapled to it somewhere, but it's still a bizarre and mildly disturbing take on the Dark Knight. I mean, a lot of products purport "as you've never seen him before!" but this delivers. It's big, it's freakish, it's basically a weirdo art piece. Get one if you can. It wasn't terribly expensive given the edition size (and the product size) and I'm also 100% biased, so get it if you think it's good. The paint is nice and clean, and the idea is just twisted enough that it works. I'd love to see Deadpool defile a Spider-Man or a Professor X some day.
