A new life-size Arthur Fleck bust is now available for pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles and Infinity Studio X Penguin Toys.
Can you introduce me as Joker?
There’s no doubt that Joaquin Phoenix’s portrayal of Arthur Fleck, an aspiring comedian who struggles with loneliness and mental illness before ultimately embracing a role as one of pop culture’s greatest villains, was a fine piece of acting. He absolutely carried a somewhat derivative and preachy plot on his back and made Joker a cinematic sensation.
It garnered him an Oscar and cemented his reputation as one of the industry’s most gifted and hardest working stars. It’s a role that will loom large over every version of the Joker character that comes after and deserves to be celebrated.
Now… can you imagine walking through your library or game room every morning and locking eyes with this guy?
You wouldn’t get it
There are all sorts of Joker statues out there; some are funny, some are scary and some are downright grisly. There are some that make you reach for your wallet and some that make your shiver uncontrollably. This has to be the first one that confirms your fear of ultimately dying broke and alone. If I bought this guy, he’d have to be facing a corner all the time. Now don’t get me wrong, this new life-size Arthur Fleck Bust is absolutely stunning, but it’s also stunningly scary and dark. Poor Arthur, he just wanted a friend.
… sigh, let’s look at the pitch:
