With Nerdoween just around the corner, most Suicide Squad fans are putting the finishing touches on their Joker and Harley couples costume. Thanks to Hot Toys‘ latest release, whoever is dressing up as the Clown Prince of Crime will now have a better idea of what their final product should look like.
Here is the third version of the Joker (portrayed by Jared Leto) from Hot Toys’ Suicide Squad line—fourth if you count the exclusive where the Joker is wearing his own version of Batman’s costume. Here, we see the Clown Prince in his full tuxedo, which, if you saw the movie, you know definitely took influences from the now iconic Alex Ross vision of him (minus the receding hairline).
The Joker comes with a full cloth tuxedo, a gold plated machine gun, a pistol, a cane, an acetylene torch (I don’t think it actually works, so you’ll have to figure out how to torture your other Hot Toys on your own), three sets of hands, and a stand.
The Joker is such an iconic and important villain that it was odd to see him relegated to a supporting role in Suicide Squad. With an influence taken directly from the comic books, I hope someday we get a classic Batman/Joker showdown within the DCEU.
You can check out more pictures of the Joker in the gallery below, and you can pre-order the figure for $219.99 on Sideshow Collectibles website here.
So what do you think? Will you be picking up this version of the Joker? Do you still feel that no one in their right mind will be able to top Heath Ledger? Let us know!
