Whoa! Now THIS is a creative collectible. Sideshow presents the newest addition to their Gotham City Nightmare collection: The Joker!
The Joker Statue measures 20” tall, emerging from a chemical vat filled with venomous green acid.
“We took the insanity of The Joker and made his entire makeup a tableaux of bas-relief Easter eggs of his entire existence,” Creative Director Tom Gilliland explained.
“We wanted a very organic collage of all the elements of The Joker’s life and his character intermeshed into his body,” Sculptor Paul Komoda added.
The Exclusive edition of The Joker comes with a swap-out portrait revealing another face of his nightmarish insanity, with a closed mouth and curled green hair. The Exclusive edition also includes a small pedestal for displaying the alternate portrait, a jack-in-the-box bubbling over with noxious chemicals.
Pre-orders for The Joker Statue begin on Thursday, April 19th between 12pm-3pm PST. The Exclusive edition will be priced at $535.00 and the Collector edition will be priced at $520.00.
