Almost everyone who owns this figure has either customized it or thought of customizing it, and I'm no different. I thought it was a great figure when I first opened it, but that the paint job didn't do the sculpt any justice at all. In December of 2009 I decided to repaint the face to make the makeup appear messier. However, this ended up looking a little too cartoonish (see comparison pic). So there it sat until I gathered up the motivation to have another go at this figure after browsing around the custom figure realm here and noticing what wonderful custom jobs a lot of realmers had made out of their MM Jokers. I smeared the face in a very thin, thinned-down layer of flesh-tone paint, and smudged it around to even it out. Then, I dirtied up the jacket, vest and shoes with some very light dry-brushing of a muddy brown paint, because the plastic looked too cheap and clean to me. Finally, I repainted the hair, starting with a brown wash, then a muddy brown one and a green one to finish. Also gave him a knife that I moulded out of DAS air-drying clay. Sure it's far from the best Joker here, but I'm really proud of it.

Thank you so much to the both of you. Pulpy, I'll readily admit that your version blows mine right out of the water, and I'll also admit that yours was what kinda kicked me into going back and working on this one again. The knife that came with the figure was just so small, flimsy and sad; I like making little accessories out of clay and I'm glad you like this one!

I see we were working on the same thing as late, looks like you had as much fun as I did! I like that you did another knife, way better than the factory one, and it looks like you don't have to worry about losing it.
