The Joker From Hot Toys

April 8, 2009

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the most part of 2008, you’d know that The Dark Knight was only the biggest superhero film to hit screens worldwide.

And if you haven’t been living under a rock, you’d also know that Heath Ledger chillingly and accurately played one of the most famous super criminals in the comic book world. His portrayal of the Joker still sends shivers down my spine everytime I think of his performance.

I still remember when Heath was cast as the Joker, I couldn’t imagine how he’d pull it off. Then the first teaser trailer hit the internet and I heard that voice and laugh and I knew…I just KNEW he got the Joker’s essence down pat.

It is therefore of no surprise that Hot Toys has created a replica figure of the late Heath Ledger from the movie, The Dark Knight, in 1/6 scale:
