I've always loved the design of the Arkham Asylum Joker figure, but being a DC Direct figure it was severely lacking in the articulation. I aimed to change that, so I took the existing figure and made him really poseable. I shaved away some plastic inside the shoulders and hips and greatly improved their range of motion. I also sliced the arms and legs and made some bicep and thigh swivels, and I popped apart the torso from the legs and made a waist rotator joint (that's right, the original figure couldn't even turn at the waist!). So now that the Joker can actually move, he's ready take on the Batman as the Clown Prince of Crime!

Amazing work on articulating that Joker It's hard to believe that use have about as much articulation as a action figure from the 70's. Really great work

Wow that's awesome man. How do you slice so clean?

Heat it up first to soften it, and always keep a sharp X-ACTO blade.

Thanks for replying Mint. Just curious, but what's your preferred method when heating. I know it's different with everyone, but I wanted to know if you personally use water or air.
Mint Condition Customs - Thursday, December 19, 2013
Air for me. I have a hair dryer at my work station. It's so much quicker and cleaner than boiling. Not to mention safer for the plastic. Plastic has cellulose in it, which is also in plants, and when you boil cellulose you're literally cooking it and altering it chemically, which could result in very brittle plastic.
