31 Days of Toy Terror: "Attack in the Box" The Joker from Batman by Mattel
I'm not overly excited by this figure, but I can see it's well done for the most part (except for the bizarrely nonfunctional accessory). I'm ultimately giving the figure a Good. While I know there are a handful of collectors out there that love this line (Philip Reed of Battlegrip.com seems to be a fan with plenty of reviews of them) other than having them as alternate versions of Batman characters for my various "multiple versions of one villain" shelves, I'm having a hard time getting jazzed about owning it. Good sculpt and paint, though. I love the head and would find it impressive at any scale.
Big Bad Toy Store has quite a few of these Batman figures in, but I didn't see the Joker. To see (and buy) others, head on over here. Also, check out our review index to find reviews of plenty of other Batman (and Joker) action figures!
