* Did you read through the articulation list on this guy? There are joints on this figure that I struggled in trying to describe. If you can't get this figure into a particular pose, you probably can't get a human being into that pose, either. Unless that human is Doug Jones. Anyways, much of the articulation is fairly well hidden as well, which is always a plus. This guy is incredible to fiddle around with and find cool poses for.
* I'm going to talk about the standard Joker head in a minute but let's first talk about the masked head. It's awesome. The hair on the back has the stringy look that Ledger sported for the role (complete with DIY green dye) while the mask looks soulless and blank. This is a great sculpt and having an alternate masked head was definitely the right way to go.
* In case you want to pose the Joker holding his mask rather than wearing it, the figure does come with an alternate mask accessory. It's sized correctly although it doesn't actually fit on the unmasked Joker head. Still, it's a cool extra and one that's really fun to use in various poses.
* I love this outfit. It's not as crazy as the Joker's standard outfit but there is just a hint of the classic Joker costume here to be interesting. The print and sculpt are awesome on the shirt and the jacket and trousers look worn and lived in.
* The Joker's sport coat is a separate piece that simply rests over the figure's torso. The loose hanging piece does help to give the figure a bit more of a life-like work and is molded in a soft enough plastic that it doesn't inhibit the articulation, either.
* To help him eliminate some of his crew, the Joker comes with his modified Glock 17. It looks to be the same accessory that comes with the previous TDK Joker, but that's OK: It's a realistic looking pistol and fits in the toy's alternate trigger finger hand well.
* To tote some explosives around the Joker comes with his own duffle bag. It's blue, has a decent sculpt, and it can be held in a pretty convincing manner by the figure.
* Does the Joker seem a bit...unburdened? Yeah, the figure feels a little light. Considering that the standard Joker came with 8 hands, a pistol, rocket launcher, machine gun, knife, cards, and two interchangeable hands, this guy's accessory complement just seems a little too light, particularly for the price. A sawed off shotgun or some explosives would have been really nice
Judge Reinhold. I promise you, that's exactly who I saw the first time I started photographing this figure.
* Don't Panic! This isn't breakage! Just know that MAFEX figures are fairly easy to assemble and disassemble. This seems to help make them more durable (joints don't snap; they just pop out) and possibly somewhat customizable, too. These are definitely action figures that you display, pose, and photograph rather than just straight up play with. They're fun but they're just designed with a different purpose in mind.
