Joker (Missile Launcher) Review

Joker (Missile Launcher)
Dark Knight - Movie Masters (DC Direct) - Exclusives - MattyCollector
The Dark Knight was a true legend of a movie, no question about it. Simply fantastic. So of course we would expect the same from the action figures and we got that too. This looks exactly like Heath Ledger's Joker. The interrogation scene can be reenacted. The paint is fantastic, the sculpt is fantastic, and the articulation is fantastic, but there's one thing wrong. On the back of the packaging, it shows a photo of the Joker figure with arm articulation that he doesn't actually have, which is very strange because the leg articulation is exceptional. The missile launcher is great, and it really is fitting to the Joker even though I don't remember him using a bazooka while wearing this uniform. All in all, a great figure, worth your money, but just a heads up on the arm articulation.

Actually, you're right. Most of these figures are pretty hard to sit down. Thanks for noticing that. Sometimes I may humor a figure by rating it a little high...

Dude I don't really agree with you here. You can't re-enact the jail cell scene. I have a chair in his scale, if the leg articulation was so good he could sit in the chair, which is not possible. Try it, his legs don't bend up enough to kick above his knee without breaking or cracking the crotch piece, thus making it impossible for him to sit down.
Don't get me wrong, I like this figure for the most part for a few reasons. Sculpt is a big upgrade, he does look much better that his first incarnation. Paints are much better here too, the clothing detail is amazing like the patterning on the shirt. However articulation is not one of them. He doesn't even have the range the thugs, the scarecrow, and the dent figures have.

Although I don't agree with how high you rated this figure, I do agree with you as to how good the movie was!
