[b]THE JOKER[/b]

Thanks to the kind folks at DC Direct, and Mattel, the addition of a 6-inch scale JOKER Action Figure to my collection was reasonably easy and painless.

The [b]Mattel DC Universe Classics Joker[/b] figure (body) was an outstandingly sculpted and very well articulated rendition of the character’s classic purple tuxedo appearance. I saw very little room for improvement there.

My only gripe was the giddy-looking face sculpt.

But as luck would have it, our good friends at DC Direct came to my rescue with the release of the [b]Arkham Asylum Joker[/b] action figure. It was, hands down, my absolute favorite head sculpt of the character in this scale. Since the sculpt was rendered to match The Joker’s Arkham Asylum video game appearance, (with a heavily receding hairline and bald temples), some re-sculpting was going to be necessary to bring him back to his classic comic book look.

I filled in the balding upper forehead areas of the head with white squadron putty, and re-sculpted the waves of a fuller hairline with the point of a large sewing needle. With a few strokes of green paint, I managed to successfully reverse this maniac’s male pattern baldness!

Using real wood, I completely re-built the sad, short, rubbery, and warped walking cane accessory that came with the DC Universe Classics Joker figure.

Nice work, sometimes just a head swap can make all the difference.

The hair replacement on the temples looks seamless!

Great touch with the cane too.
