This Sideshow Toys Sixth Scale Joker Figure Is No Laughing Matter!

By Zack Smith

If you love Batman and have cash to burn – you’re going to need to get over to Sideshow Toys right now.

Sideshow has revealed the art for their Sixth Scale figure of the Joker, and it’s a doozy!

With two head sculpts, multiple hands, and weapons ranging from a buzzer to playing cards to dynamite to a straight razor (!), it’s the ultimate toy-take on the Clown Prince of Crime. There’s even a Joker Fish!

The figure will retail for $189.99, and be available for pre-order on Jan.24 through the Sideshow newsletter, which is typically published between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. PST.

Sideshow has some stunning versions of the Joker already available for pre-order – check out their Heath Ledger Joker and Jack Nicholson Joker from Hot Toys. The likenesses are absolutely uncanny – though they’ll set you back around $300 each after shipping (helpfully, Sideshow offers a payment plan).

I’m a little unnerved to think of what Sideshow would do if they created a toy of the Joker’s current iteration in the comics, where his face has been sliced off and strapped back on as a decaying mask with a leather strap. Well, I’m sure it’d be a very effective collectible, anyway.

Anyone planning to preorder one of these…and anyone who could spot an impoverished toy blogger $200? Worth a shot.
