Header.jpgIt's Wednesday and you know what that means: ToyFarce reviews!

  1. This week, we're having a look at the DC Multiverse Three Jokers wave from McFarlane Toys. I have been sitting on that wave for a while, because I was waiting for the third Joker, the Gamestop exclusive one, to complete the set. Luckily, a friend of mine managed to get his hands on it (thanks Ryan!) and now, the wave is complete!

'Three Jokers' is a great comic book story arc written by Geoff Johns with art from Jason Fabok, and it is pretty much a direct sequel to the classic 'The Killing Joke' by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, with similar art and panels. It follows a story that was teased a few years before, when Batman got access to all existing knowledge when sitting on the Mobius chair, and when he asked for the Joker's true identity, the answer was 'There are three'.

First off, the good guys: This wave has a fantastic Batman (aNoThEr BaTmAn?!?), Red Hood and Batgirl, which are the 3 main characters of the story. The design is the same as Jason Fabok's art in the book, and that Batman is pretty much 'the perfect' Batman from that DC Multiverse line. Simple yet efficient design. Batgirl is also better than the one from the very first wave. Articulations are the usual for that line, and the figures display great. Batman comes with a grapple gun, Red Hood comes with a crowbar (morbid, much?) and Batgirl has a yellow batarang and a grapple gun.

And now, the best part: the villains! The three jokers have a different name to differentiate one from another: The Clown and The Criminal were the regular ones in that wave, and The Comedian was the Gamestop exclusive. The Clown has a pink jacket while the other two sport the usual purple. The Clown comes with a crowbar and a laughing fish, The Criminal comes with a cane (a thick cane, for...reasons?) and The Comedian comes with a camera and a crowbar (that's a lot of crowbars in this wave!).

These figures look great but really aren't that much fun to play with unfortunately. They seem to have problem balancing aesthetics and articulation. Very rarely do they crunch forward.
