Joke’s On You

Kotobukiya have revealed that they will release an ARTFX statue of The Joker that’s based on the 1988 graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke in May.

This 1/6 scale Japanese import stands 11-inches tall and includes base with a motion that will turn on the light and click the camera. The LED light can even be positioned however you like on the base.

Written by Alan Moore, and drawn by Brian Bollard, Batman: The Killing Joke is considered one of the more important stories in Batman lore, as it’s the book where [SPOILER ALERT] The Joker paralyzed Barbara Gordon, ending her career as Batgirl (which, ultimately, lead to her career as Oracle). It has since inspired elements of the games Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, as well as both Christopher Nolan’s and Tim Burton’s Batman movies.

The statue will retail for $129.99.
