In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Hot Toys' 1/6th scale Joker figure, the company is releasing 1/4th scale Joker figure from The Dark Knight. Additionally, Hot Toys is doubling down on the Dark Knight Trilogy by creating a 1/4th scale Batman figure from Batman Begins.
Heath Ledger made history with his Oscar-winning performance in the trilogy's second entry as the iconic supervillain the Joker – an honor that was awarded posthumously. Additionally, Christian Bale cemented himself as one of the great Batman actors with his iteration of the caped crusader in a feature that surprised critics and fans alike with its tight script, impeccable direction, and its refreshingly grounded take on the masked vigilante.
See the descriptions of both figures below. Hot Toys is sure to impress with even more exciting reveals – especially with their Justice League line. That said, it is fun to go back and celebrate some of the best films and performances in the genre.
