Seven years ago, Christopher Nolan tapped Heath Ledger to play arguably the most iconic comic book villain in his sequel to Batman Begins. As the Joker in The Dark Knight, Ledger made a lasting impression on the fanbase that's often remembered as one of, if not the, most memorable performance in a comic book film. At least part of that reverence comes from the fact that it was Ledger's final film role, but it's also due to the fact that his Joker was so different, strange and captivating.
Since that film's release, Joker action figures have constantly been in the rotation from various companies, including Hot Toys, NECA, and recently, Medicom. The Japanese manufacturer has been slowly releasing figures based on the final two films in the past year or so, including a Batman, Catwoman and a purple-suited Joker. Next, Medicom's MAFEX line will introduce the Joker from his brief time as a bank robber in the earliest moments of The Dark Knight.
Though fans have access to Batman, Joker, Superman, Bizarro and Swamp Thing, Medicom's line of DC Comics sofubi figures will finally welcome two female characters in 2015 with Batgirl and Catwoman joining the soft vinyl fray...
When Medicom opened up preorders for its The Amazing Spider-Man 2 MAFEX action figure earlier this year, a teaser image depicted a pretty straightforward addition to the 6.3" tall toy line. Sure, it was cool to see a new take on the film's updated Spidey suit, but otherwise it was pretty similar to the first ASM figure, right? Well, not completely. While the basic figure is similar in some regards, there's going to be a deluxe edition of the Spider-Man figure that has accessories enow to make it look like he may or may not enjoy seductive convos on his smartphone. Oh, and a friggin' skateboard!
