Sideshow Collectibles and Prime 1 Studio have created a delightful new statue of the Joker. “Say cheese!”
At least he’s not taking pictures of his food…
This is a terrific statue, no doubt about it, but I never pictured Joker as a “selfie stick” kind of guy. Maybe he’s being ironic? He’s got a Robin completely at his mercy, why is he not beating it with a crowbar? Or maybe that’s what the selfie stick’s for? Sometimes I just think too hard about these things.
Let’s just go to the pitch:
Prime 1 Studio is always proud to present the Clown Prince of Crime in our Museum Masterline DC Series, so today we present our top-of-the-line The Joker, “Say Cheese” 1:3 Scale Statue!
Perhaps the best thing about The Joker is his immediate recognizability as Batman’s preeminent arch-nemesis and opposite number. He’s an unparalleled DC super-villain who can hold his own against not only The Dark Knight Detective, but also gods, monsters, and other super villains!
And that’s why, to celebrate the multitude of ways The Joker is the best super villain ever, Prime 1 Studio offers you, our loyal DC fans, his most expressive statue to date! In the 39 inches tall “Say Cheese”, we find that The Joker has gotten the drop on Robin and bound him tightly! And right as the Ace of Knaves releases an aerosolized version of his toxic Joker Venom, which threatens to suffocate the Boy Wonder, The Joker chooses this exact moment to call The Caped Crusader and taunt him! The Joker truly possesses a warped mind!
Prime 1 Studio artists worked together to fully realize the Harlequin of Hate at the top of his game. We have sculpted The Joker’s suit to impeccable exactness, crafting the perfect wrinkles, pleats, seams, and textures to reveal that his style is as important as his substance. The Joker’s grimace carries the fatal malice in his heart as he stares face to face with Batman. We’ve made sure to take our comic book references seriously and sculpt the perfect hair, lines and expression into The Joker’s face. Our painters have been hard at work rendering this statue with the utmost heightened realism to bring you a dazzlingly colorful figure! The depth and volume of The Joker’s face are subtly rendered with fine airbrushing, his suit is a powerful purple, which sets off the verdant greens of the rest of the statue.
We’ve equipped The Joker with a mobile phone on a selfie stick, with which he is probably offering The Batman some sort of last-minute deal for Robin’s life. While in his other hand, we’ve crafted a finely detailed cane, which shows off the level of care and craftsmanship we have put into this creation!
Last but not least, The Joker is standing on an imperiled Robin, as Joker Venom gas is quickly enveloping him. Not a mere throwaway base embellishment, this Robin has received as much attention as the rest of the statue in detail and appearance. We’ve imbued the gas swirling around him with an ethereal quality through our lifelike sculpting and talented paintwork. All you need to do is turn the statue to reveal and enjoy even more easter eggs that we’ve included in this one-of-a-kind offering that is sure to delight fans of The Joker and of Prime 1 Studio alike.
Since you can never have enough statues of The Joker in your life, hurry and grab this one for yourself today!
This insanely detailed, lovingly crafted statue is now available for preorder!
