For the beginning of the new year post, I will review The Joker with Crime Scene Evidence Toy figure from Mattel. I got this on the first day of the New year at a bargain price! :D It is a consolation to me since I could not afford the Bank Robber 12" version... :( Anyone want to donate that to me? :) Okay on with the Review.
The Packaging is good as it protect the figure really well. You can see the detail of the figure clearly.
As for card design, I find this part look good but it really doesn't served much propose unless you are a MISB collector.
Do you know they have holes for on both side of the card for the figure to breath? Really..no joke...Okay I don't really know why they do that but my best guess to keep the figure moist or dry?
Time to Open the Toy!
This Joker is really a bargain for the price you are paying. First it is 6" and it can stand rather well and do offer some decent articulation. Look good all around.
Since it is from the movie, the face likeness is really important. For this figure, the likeness of the late actor Heath Ledger is there as the Joker.
For the weapon, it just a tiny soft knife and that is about it...That a really disappointment...
Why would they give a Joker card? Do they expect the toy collector or kids to play with the card? Nevertheless the detail of the card is there.
How would you play with the card? By putting it in a textbook of your nemesis in your class?
The package also offer a zip lock plastic bag to further encourage the kids to play as Inspector Gordon..Wait it is Commissioner Gordon now to be correct...
You can sign your name there too. Is that fun or what? Do they throw in the DNA testing kits as well? No? Hm...
Okay back to the figure...
Somehow seeing this figure really put a smile on my face as I got it at a very good bargain. Want to give it guess on how much I got this? Hey why so serious? Hehehe
