Sideshow Collectables has released the pre-order for their Joker Statue, which is apart of their Gotham City Nightmares Collection. The product description for the figures says:
“Take The Joker, and make him an amalgam of everything Gotham…”
Sideshow is thrilled to present The Joker Statue, the next twisted face in the Gotham City Nightmare collection, which dares to ask, what would the familiar faces of Gotham become when viewed through eyes filled with fear?
“We took the insanity of The Joker and made his entire makeup a tableau of bas-relief Easter eggs of his entire existence,” Creative Director Tom Gilliland explained.
The Joker Statue measures 20” tall, emerging from a chemical vat filled with venomous green acid. Beneath copper-colored pipes, the architecture of Gotham City can be seen laying the groundwork for the rise of this nightmarish Clown Prince of Crime.
“All it takes is one bad day” to make The Joker Statue your most frightening nightmare yet! This intricate statue is bursting with brilliant details revealing just what makes The Joker who he is, sculpted in polystone with vinyl and PVC elements. From Ace Chemicals to the famed Arkham Asylum as his backbone, The Joker Statue will keep you captivated by the horror as you search for references to the some of the villain’s most infamous moments.
“We wanted a very organic collage of all the elements of The Joker’s life and his character intermeshed into his body,” Designer Paul Komoda added.
Spot Harley Quinn and Red Hood, a school of Joker Fish and freakish faces, and homages to artists like Jim Lee, Frank Miller, Dave McKean, and more all wrapped up in this warped vision of the Clown Prince of Crime. Can you find all the hidden secrets? Lean in closer, but beware The Joker as he offers you a gag flower- or else the joke may be on you!
The Exclusive edition of The Joker comes with a swap-out portrait revealing another face of his nightmarish insanity, with a closed mouth and curled green hair. The Exclusive edition also includes a small pedestal for displaying the alternate portrait, a jack-in-the-box bubbling over with noxious chemicals.
Have the last laugh and add The Joker Statue from Gotham City Nightmare to your collection today.”
Now, this Sideshow figure is actually really amazing because the detail on it is amazing, and it also comes with an alternative head for The Joker, which you can see in the image above. This figure is up for pre-order and the price for it is $535. It is expected to be shipped between November 2018-January 2019. And you can get if from the Sideshow website.
