  1. Beast Kingdom via Facebook has announced TWO new figures from the 1989 Batman Movie, Batman and Joker! Stay tuned here for more info as it comes!
  2. Production is underway for Joker: Folie à Deux and director Todd Phillips posted an image of Joaquin Phoenix on set as Arthur Fleck. The image features Fleck, appearing much thinner and more homicidal as he is getting a shave from someone during his stay at Arkham Asylum. Since this movie is expected to be a musical, then maybe Fleck is getting a shave from Sweeney Todd? Joaquin Phoenix is reprising his role as Arthur Fleck, along with Zazie Beetz reprising her role as Sophie. Lady Gaga takes over as Harley Quinn, with an additional cast of Catherine Keener, Brendan Gleeson, Jacob Lofland, and Harry Lawtey. https://www.instagram.com/p/CmAGaZcyNFP/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  3. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the 1/6 scale figure of the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series by Mondo, the SDCC limited edition version. The Mondo 1/6 scale figures have been pretty great until now, and that Joker is no exception. The figure itself is easily the best of that line, and the different heads and accessories are just the cherry on top! As usual with Mondo, the box is a work of art, with 2 of their amazing prints on it. It is a huge box too, which opens in the front thanks to magnets (how do they work?). There are 2 layers of inserts inside. (A hand had gotten loose during transportation, and I could hear it move inside the box which gave me a mini panic attack.) The Clown Prince of Crime comes with a ton of accessories: 5 extra heads (3 extra heads for the standard version, with the top hat version and the head from the 'Be a Clown' episode being the exclusive ones for this set), 5 extra sets of hands (12 hands in total), 2 smiling fishes, a normal (ball) bomb, a Joker dynamite stick, a Joker stack of dynamite, an ice pick, his playing cards and a stand. That is A LOT of accessories! With 6 different heads, he is only 2 heads short of being the 12 inch version of the DC Direct Expressions Pack. The various expressions are: Smiling, Smug, Laughing, Sad, top hat version and 'Be a Clown' version. The heads and hands are very easy to change, which is always a plus. The cel shading on the figure is nicely done too, with the back of the figure being a darker purple than the front. Articulation-wise, it does the job, even with single elbows and knees, ball joints for shoulders and legs, and swivels all around. Not torso/ab articulation, the jacket is a big rubber part on top of the body. It is a great figure, and my only complaint about it is the price. At $235, it is the most expensive of that line so far (Batman was $125 four years ago, Mr Freeze was $130 and Catwoman $165). I get that he comes with a ton of accessories + inflation, etc... but it is still a tough pill to swallow... and yes, I bought it anyway. The limited one, even. I know. More news at 11:00... Without Batman, Crime Has No Punchline.
  4. Between Hot Toys, who made more than a few, DC Direct, the numerous third party who tried their hands on it and the thousands of custom head sculpts that have been done over the last 14 years (since the movie came out), one would think that, at this point, everybody who wanted a Heath Ledger Joker figure now had one. Well, lo and behold, a new player has entered the game, as Queen Studios is going to start producing 1/6 scale figures, and one of their first figures is... a Dark Knight Heath Ledger Joker! This weekend, Queen Studios, the brand behind those huge premium statues and life-size busts, held an event in Las Vegas to present their new INART line, a line of premium one sixth scale figures. They unveiled their figures of Batman from The Batman (2022), Pennywise the Clown from It (2017), Gandalf the Grey from the Lord of the Rings (2001), along with the inevitable Heath Ledger Joker from The Dark Knight (2008)... making it probably the 40th 1/6 scale Heath Ledger Joker figure. An insider source that was present in Las Vegas during the weekend told us he has come to the conclusion that doing a Heath Ledger Joker 1/6 figure is actually some sort of rite of passage for toy brands, and that producing a Dark Knight Joker instantly makes a brand more legitimate. There were other informations given during the information, but our source told us that 'what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas'... More news at 11:00... Next, an Iron Man 1/6th scale figure! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  5. Oscar nominee Catherine Keener has landed a major role in Todd Phillips’ Joker sequel Joker: Folie à Deux for Warner Bros. and DC Films, according to Deadline. Keener will star opposite of Joaquin Phoenix, Lady Gaga, Brendan Gleeson, and Zazie Beetz. Production is expected to begin this December with an October 24th, 2024 release date. Returning to direct is Todd Phillips from a script co-written with Scott Silver. Keener's role is unknown at this time.
  6. Brendan Gleeson has joined the cast of Joaquin Phoenix, Lady Gaga, and Zazie Beetz in Todd Phillips’ Joker sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux for Warner Bros. and DC Films, according to Deadline. Production is expected to begin this December with an October 24th, 2024 release date. Returning to direct is Todd Phillips from a script co-written with Scott Silver. No word on what role Gleeson will play.
  7. Sources from within have informed Deadline that Zazie Beetz is in talks to reprise her role as Sophie Dumond in the Todd Phillips directed Warner Bros/DC sequel Joker: Folie à Deux. The character of Sophie is a single mom struggling in Gotham City and a neighbor of Arthur Fleck, played by Joaquin Phoenix, who had delusions of having a romance with her. The movie is scheduled for October 4th, 2024 with shooting set to begin in December. Joining the cast is Lady Gaga to play the Joker’s girlfriend Harley Quinn.
  8. Todd Phillips’ Joker sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux, now has an October 4th, 2024, release date. The date was elected after Warner Bros. Discovery kicked Batgirl to the curb. Warners is banking on a repeat performance as they released the first Joker movie in October 2019 and the film went to a domestic opening record level of $96.2 million. Altogether, the film cashed in $335.4M domestic, and globally it is the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever at $1.07 billion. The Joker was nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture and Phillips for Best Director and won two Oscars: Best Actor for star Joaquin Phoenix and Original Music Score for Hildur Guðnadóttir. Production is scheduled to begin in December. Source: Deadline
  9. Oscar-winner Lady Gaga is in early talks to star opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Warner Bros.’ Joker: Folie à Deux. Phoenix's deal hasn't been signed yet, but he's in advanced talks with the studio. According to Deadline, Lady Gaga will play Harley Quinn — the Arkham Asylum shrink who falls in love with her patient Arthur Fleck aka Joker. The character was played by Margot Robbie in the Suicide Squad films. The sequel to the Joker is being kept under wraps, but Todd Phillips is returning as director and he co-wrote the script with Scott Silver.
  10. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the Titan form of The Joker from the Arkham Asylum game, from the McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse line. In the game, the Joker injects himself with Titan, a modified version of Bane's venom, mixed with toxins from Poison Ivy's plants, and becomes this huge monster that is the first game's final boss. First impression, that is a BIG figure (11 inches). The Joker certainly went through some gnarly transformation to look like that. No accessories, apart from the usual trading card and DC Multiverse base. One thing that McFarlane Toys does very well are big monsters, so this figure is packed with nice details in the sculpt and paint apps. In terms of articulations, it can move, but not a lot, since he is kinda top heavy, and a lot of poses would just make him fall forward or backwards, kinda like the big Violator figure from the recent first wave of Spawn figures. He has cuts all over his chest and blood on his claws... seems like he had a rough day. Here are some comparison pics with the DC Collectibles version of it from 2012, which was sculpted by Phil Ramirez. I gotta say that I lean more towards the older one than this new one. The head sculpt was definitely better on the older version, which looked a bit more like the Joker, Phil Ramirez nailed that one. This new one is more of a McFarlane Toys-stylized version of it. Also, it looks like he did more cardio at the gym than muscle building, as he looks a lot leaner than the older figure... More news at 11:00... What would a Titan version of the Penguin look like?
  11. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce reviews! This week, we're having a look at the Joker figure from the New Batman Adventures animated series from MAFEX. Last november, we did a review of the Batman figure from that same line (which can be found here), and it only took about 8 months for another figure to come out (sweet, sweet delays). Like the Batman figure, this is not exactly the design that we wanted (The Animated Series), but it is the one from The New Batman Adventures show, which are not as celebrated... The box is the usual square-ish box that we get from MAFEX, with window at the front. At first glance, it looks like this figure doesn't have much accessories, but there are a few more hands hidden behind the cardboard. Like the Batman before him, the box uses a lot of blue, like the DC Collectibles line used to do (blue = New Adventures, red= Animated Series). Hopefully, we'll see some red boxes soon! The Clown Prince of Crime comes with 5 extra sets of hands + a pointing one (13 hands in total!), another headsculpt, a wallet, dollar bills, a paper plane made with a dollar bill, and a knife. No gun, obviously, even if a fake gun with a flag that says 'bang' would have been a fun accessory for him. This is a pretty weird figure for MAFEX, who usually have great articulations, but that Joker cannot do much. No bicep swivels and no thigh swivels means you can't really pose him in a lot of different ways. I get that it was probably to avoid ugly cuts on the purple suit, but it's still disappointing. The figure can crunch forward a bit, if you move the belt out of the way to allow more movement, but it's still not much, since the jacket would hinder more movement. The butterfly joints also look a bit weird, and act as extensions to the suit (pointy shoulders). So considering all that, paying the full MAFEX price for a figure that cannot do half of what the usual MAFEX figures can do kinda stings. It does look great, however, and comes with fun accessories, reminiscent of 'Joker's Millions', that episode where the Joker admits that he's crazy enough to fight with Batman, but not with the IRS. "If I don't pay my taxes, I'll go to jail!", he said. With the MAFEX Hush line being one of the best Batman line out there, it's kinda disappointing that the same effort was not put into the New Batman Adventures line. Let's hope that the next ones will have a bit more work put into them (and that they use the Animated Series designs instead!). More news at 11:00... I'm crazy enough to take on Batman; but IRS? No thank you!
  12. Director Todd Phillips has revealed via Instagram the new title for the next Joker movie entitled 'Joker: Folie à deux.' It's a french reference being a medical term pertaining to a mental disorder which affects two or more people. The director wrote the sequel script with Scott Silver and Warner Bros. have already given the approval. Joaquin Phoenix is said to be reading the script and upon his approval then he'll be signing the deal to reprise his role as the disturbed murderous anarchist Arthur Fleck. Source: Deadline
  13. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Gotham by Gaslight Joker from Mezco's One:12 Collective line. This is one of those "What if" kind of figures, as the Joker did not appear in the Gotham by Gaslight comic book, so we can ponder the question "What if the Joker was in the Victorian era?", or "What if the Joker figure came out months before the actual Batman from that story?". Well, here it is! Special thanks to my friend Ryan C for the assist to get this one! This has to be one of the most sober boxes from Mezco I have seen in a while. No sleeve, pretty light cardboard compared to the usual, just straight to the point. Fair enough. This Gotham by Gaslight Joker comes with a nice jacket, a scarf, a bloody apron, a top hat, sunglasses, a suitcase, 3 playing cards, 2 headsculpts, all sorts of hands and a plethora of sharp tools which can be stored in the suitcase (which is pretty awesome). The smiling headsculpt is a beautiful homage to Conrad Veidt's classic look from the 1928 movie "The Man Who Laughs", which is a great touch. I love that kind of little easter eggs, especially since the Joker character was heavily inspired by the character in that movie in the first place. Well, what else can I say? This is your usual Mezco One:12 Collective figure: Great articulation, the tailoring is fantastic, this will look amazing on any shelf. Several options for display (jacket, jacket+scarf, no jacket, apron,... naked?). More news at 11:00... "What a lucky clown you are! You don't have to wipe off your laugh."
  14. It's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're looking at the brand new Joker figure from the Batman: Hush line from MAFEX. This is the 5th figure in that line (6th if you count the Batman black repaint). As usual, MAFEX did an excellent work in bringing the character from the comic book in figure form. This figure blew away my expectations, actually. As much as I love Jim Lee's art (and I have tattoos from his work on my body), his Joker has never been my favorite representation of him. Add to that the DC Direct Batman: Hush figure of Joker looked really bad, so I expected this figure to be the one I would like the least. Well, it turns out it's an awesome figure! It comes with 2 stellar headsculpts, 5 extra sets of hands and a knife. As expected, no guns, since MAFEX had warned long ago about it not coming with guns due to the Warner decision to keep away from guns in their products. The shade of purple of his suit was also rectified to be darker than in the initial promo shots, which looks great. Articulation-wise, it's the usual MAFEX product, unfortunately no thigh or biceps swivel, which hinders it a little, but since it's not a Spider-man figure and doesn't need to do any gymnast posts, that will do. Of course, it would have been nice to have the prop gun with the flag to recreate "that" scene from the comic book, but we can always use guns from other figures, any third-party ones or even 3D print them if you know what you're doing - "What are you doing? - I'm printing a gun, mum!". Those are weird times, indeed. The next ones in this line should be Harley Quinn in April 2022, Batman with the Stealth Jumper suit in June and Huntress in August, unless there are any (more) delays from MAFEX. More news at 11:00... "Stop me if you've heard this one before, Batsy..."
