Hello there my Nerd Nation Faithful!
It’s taken some time but once again i have found yet another sweet repository for badass toys. (I can say “badass” right? this is a cable show, isn’t it?). This time its a place called Hottoys.com.hk I’m sure the HK is for Hong Kong but what does it matter? I tell you this. When you come across what you think is a picture of an actor in their costume and it turns out to be an action figure- you get your butt on the internet and you tell your friends! Now I am also aware that the world moves faster than most of us can keep up with it… and to those of you who already know about Hot Toys I’m sorry for wasting your time, and oh, why didn’t you tell me about this?
Okay let me just get right to it. LOOK at this Mime Joker from 1989 Batman. Its the perfect thing for the corporate geek goths office. Doesn’t it bear an uncanny resemblance to the real thing?
This is a toy!
Did I mention it’s a FOOT TALL? AND it has a P.E.R.S. – which is a Parallel Eyeball Rolling System so you can creep everyone out by re-posing it often since its got 30 points of articulation. I thought i had it made with my old Spiderman figure that had 14. Oh yes! it also comes with a gorram backdrop!
For a better look just hit up Hot Toys website. Here is a link to the item in question
OH they also make a Hulk Buster Iron Man and a regular Jack Nicholson Joker, so check those out while you’re there. Hell, check it ALL out!
See ya next time on Collectables Spotlight… or more appropriately… “Interesting Stuff I Can’t Afford” =P
