Heath Ledger Joker from the Dark Knight Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:36584  
Name:Heath Ledger Joker from the Dark Knight
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Movie Maniacs
Creator:sinag55  
Date Added:February 7, 2012
Base Figure:Neca Edward Cullen
Height:7.25 inches
“Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?”

I often wondered what it would be like if Neca/McFarlane made The Dark Knight figures instead of the undersized Movie Masters line that Mattel gave us. Since most of my collection is from Neca/McFarlane/DC Direct and The Dark Knight is one of my favorite films, I had to make a custom of what I consider to be the best movie villain since Hannibal Lecter in a similar scale.

After two failed attempts (the first plain sucks, while the second needs some revisions), I’m finally satisfied enough with what I’ve done to show the folks of figurerealm =D. I’m just a beginner, so please be kind.

Joker murdered the following to get their body parts:
Head and Hair: Neca Edward Cullen with the face and hair sanded/cut off. I only used the joint and sculpted over it. (For those who will ask why I have a Twilight figure,well, I bought it specifically for this =D.)This alone took a bulk of the production time.

Torso/Vest: Neca Edward Cullen. Same as the head, I only took the joint and sculpted over the whole thing.

Upper Arms: Neca Jonah Hex. Destroyed a Neca Quentin Turnbull upper arms so I had to murder another figure to get the joints. Like the head and torso, this is also sculpted over.

Lower Arms: Neca Quentin Turnbull, sculpted same as the above.

Legs: Neca Patrick Bateman. Just repainted this but I have to say painting the pinstripes is a real pain.

Overcoat: Cut up and reassembled a broken Mezco Hellboy coat to the shape I want and sculpted over it to get the small details. After experimenting with the ratio of Procreate, I managed to make it semi-flexible. I actually regretted destroying the figure though. I think I could have used another (cheaper) material to use.

Coat: Repainted Edward’s.

Shoes: Repainted and sculpted over Edward's.

Gun: Bought a cheap soldier figure, took his gun and sculpted over it.

Knife: McFarlane Sin City Marv

Holy cow in a hand basket.. look at those sculpting skills.. killer.
TheGr8One - Saturday, March 10, 2012
As me & everyone else predicted, you won man! Congrats & I'm curious about the t2 mod you talked about in one of your reply. Can you post it? I did something like that & hes sitting on a harley too lol. Just click on my name & check it out. Once again, congrats on the epic win man!
sinag55 - Saturday, March 10, 2012
Yup, I did something similar. Same Harley. Difference is I sculpted the legs because I did it a few months before Duke Nukem came out. This is actually the very first attempt at customizing/modding a figure. Turned out acceptable but the paint job is atrocious.

And thanks for the feedback on my Joker.
sinag55 - Saturday, March 10, 2012
Again, thanks for the compliments,guys!

Thanks to everyone who voted and gave their feedback. Feels great when the product of your hard work is appreciated.

And yes, Edward suffered. I made sure he did. And I'll make more Edwards suffer, I love that base figure.

This has to win...if this does not win first place I will lose all respect for any other contest that this site produces!It has just got to win!!
fastfreddie - Tuesday, March 6, 2012
I gotta give this a 5 even though I find it hard to believe you are a beginner! Using procreate?? come on that's for expert minature makers! Love what you did here though! The likeness to Ledger is uncanny! I wish I could sculpt a quarter good as what you have done here!
sinag55 - Thursday, March 8, 2012
Thanks for the 5 stars . This is actually my 3rd custom. My first is a mod of Neca's T-800 (sculpted legs to have him sit down a Harley) and the second is Bane that I poster here a few months ago.

No miniature sculpting background here, just pure obsession. I did maybe a dozen revisions to Joker's head. Sculpting/Shaving off/Starting over until I felt satisfied with the outcome.
firefly - Sunday, March 4, 2012
second contest that I missed, first, was the vehicle slaughter then this! I would have entered the same character...(but mine's has a frown face)and I agree he's the best villain ever!!! your entry is definitely the winner for me!!!
ringomendoza - Friday, March 2, 2012

ferrytalecustoms - Thursday, March 1, 2012
That head sculpt is so COOL, definitely top 3. Super accurate to the actors.
TheGr8One - Thursday, March 1, 2012
Ding ding ding & we have a winner! This custom just put a bigass smile to my face. Can't believe your a beginner but damn you got some serious skills dude. Looking forward to your next one & good luck in the contest.
raiyuri - Thursday, March 1, 2012
Really hated the figures from Twilight and seeing this custom somehow made them useful for base bodies great job!

The head sculpt is mind blowing! Specially coming from a beginner. Its okay that you have sacrificed figures and failed in your first attempts, the outcome payed off big time. Will be looking forward on you future works. Awesome job!
mr. vader - Thursday, March 1, 2012
um...WOW!!!

JonnyVu - Thursday, March 1, 2012
and the winner is!
Redmist - Thursday, March 1, 2012
FAN-FREAKN-TASTIC! This is BOSS!
RedRebelCustoms - Thursday, March 1, 2012
Yep, you sculpted that face AND you kept him articulated AND you found a use for a horrible figure. I hope Edward suffered while his face was shaved off still couldn't have been as bad as sitting through his movie. LOL! The realism, various parts, and the Joker being one of my favorite characters since I watched the old 70's reruns as a kid, magnificent paint apps, I say WINNER!!!!!!!!!
Shinigami - Thursday, March 1, 2012
Even though he's made from Edward, that's the clear winner for me.
