Batman: The Killing Joke Joker 1/6 Scale ArtFX Statue

The best Joker story comes to you as a statue.

The Killing Joke is one of my favorite graphic novel ever.  It gives Joker a sympathetic origin story, and it’s the reason why Barbara is in wheelchair.  While the story might not still canon to the current DC universe, a classic is a classic regardless.  So when I heard Kotobukiya is releasing a statue based on the graphic novel, you bet your ass I will buy it.

Ta-da!

The flash on my phone is a little too strong.  I will be more careful next time.

The box art is perfect already.  It gets me really excited to open it.

The statue comes with sensor and such.  When it senses movement it will light up and make clicking sounds like a camera.  It’s really nice of them to include batteries in it.

The set up is kind of complicated, but here we go:

First, the base:

And put the crate on it:

Then you put the gimp:

Then you’re almost done:

Put the camera in Joker’s hands:

Make sure the wires are not tangle:

And put the batteries in:

You’re done!  The figure is ready to go and for decoration.

Classic take like the graphic novel cover:

The figure is wonderfully painted and detailed.  The sensor works wonderfully, and sense from good distant.  It can get quite annoying a bit, so you might want to turn off the sensor until necessary.

The senor distant is really impressive though.  It can sense you easily pretty far away.

The gimp is kind of gross…

There’s nothing negative to say about the statue other than that the sensor might get kind of annoying if you don’t want to have the light shine on you, or the clicking sounds to bug you.  The statue has wonderful job and detail that its worth the $100 I spend on it.  The moment I got this statue, I know I have to spare some shelf space for the master piece and I was right.

A wonderful state for fans of the Killing Joke graphic novel.   It is something that you will not regret getting.

10/10
