While Batman is returning to the big screen in 2016's Man of Steel followup, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, potentially setting up a new Batman series for star Ben Affleck, Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy has already gone down in history by Batman comic writers saying the director "got it right." The most telling example of this is the at-the-time unusual casting of Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight, a performance so memorable and powerful that the actor posthumously won an Academy Award. The Joker's introduction in The Dark Knight came in the form of a bank heist (shot in IMAX) that the villainous mastermind organized, involving clown masks, a variety of weapons and of course, a getaway school bus. That scene, those accessories and of course, The Joker's iconic costume can all be yours in the latest highly detailed sixth scale figure by Sideshow Collectibles. The The Joker (Bank Robber Version 2.0) Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys is expected to ship to buyers in September 2014 (next month) so be quick to check out the official product page here for more details and ordering details. To celebrate the figure's release, we're teaming with Sideshow to give away one of these amazing collectibles from Hot Toys' Movie Masterpiece Series. Take a look at what it comes with below.
