The Walmart exclusive DC Universe Classics Wave 10 has been popping up around the nation. While my goal in hunting these figures has always been the acquisition of the Man-Bat (no luck yet), I couldn’t help but purchase the Joker once I saw him. But what makes him so great?
The figure’s articulation is commensurate with the standards established throughout the DCUC line, unlike the prior re-release of the Joker figure from the now defunct Batman Classics line. The figure’s sculpt fantastically captures the character’s essence, unlike the DC Direct Hush Joker with his horrible jowls. And his accessories? Aside from the Imperiex pack in piece, the clown prince of crime comes with some playing cards (joker included), a Joker fish, and his trademark jester-headed cane. Did I forget anything?
Oh, right, his mallet – the handle of which is actually a Pinocchio-like nose on the Joker face that wraps around the side of the hammer’s head.
This is the most fun representation of the Joker we’ve gotten in a long time, and I was happy to add him to me collection of rogues. Now, back to the hunt for Man-Bat!
