PREVIEWS: "Civil War II," "Punisher" & More Marvel Comics on Sale June 1, 2016
The Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park had to close its brand-new Joker ride on the same day of its unveiling because two passengers who were stuck on the coaster’s cars.
In a clear, and welcome, sign that merchandising is ramping up for Suicide Squad, no sooner did Tamashii Nations debut itsS.H. Figuarts Joker and Harley Quinn action figures than images and details have surfaced for Medicom’s MAFEX versions.
While we saw the Joker last month, this is our first look at Harley, based on the likeness of actress Margot Robbie. You have to admit, the head sculpts are pretty much spot-on.
Tamashii Nations has debuted two new “Suicide Squad” figures for the Joker and Harley Quinn, modelled very closely after Jared Leto and Margot Robbie as they appear in the film.
The figures are being released under the 6″ S.H. Figuarts line, and come with accessories from the film, such as a baseball bat for the Harley figure, and two pink pistols for the Joker.
No further details have been revealed at this time, but it’s likely the figures will sell for somewhere between $79.99 and $94.99 USD each, like other toys in the line.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie is still more than three months away, but we’ve already plenty of related merchandise, from DC Collectibles statues to Pop! vinyl figures to Harley Quinn’s “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt. Now add to the list a Joker action figure that not captures that tattoos of the film’s Clown Prince of Crime, but also his, let’s say, unhinged nature.
A superhero and his archenemy go together like peanut butter and jelly or, in this case, espresso and steamed milk: One just isn’t complete without the other.
As the latest wave of superhero movies begins to wash over us, Elite Daily turned to latte artist Michael Breach to recreate a handful — or is that a cupful? — of classic pairings in his medium of choice. The results are, yes, pretty steamy.
Experimenting with the iconic nature of their costumes, Ukrainian illustrator Yuri Krasnoshchok has distilled the masks and faces of numerous fictional heroes to sparse geometric shapes in a minimalist series called simply “Masks of Superheroes.”
Spider-Man, represented only by those oversize white eyes, is probably the most successful of the bunch, but most of them are almost instantly recognizable, without the aid of the characters’ names.
Following a little teasing, Sideshow Collectibles has fully unveiled its Joker Premium Format Figure, which commemorates Heath Ledger’s acclaimed performance in 2008’s The Dark Knight.
Standing more than 19 inches tall, the figure features a detailed fabric clothing, and holds a playing card in one hand and a machine gun in the other. The Sideshow-exclusive version comes with a swap-out left hand with detonator.
The grinning, psychopathic Joker was terrifying even before he had his face surgically removed and then reattached in the comics; I mean, he’s effectively a killer clown. But add “undead” to the mix, and you have a formula for many restless nights.
Your latest nightmare arrives courtesy of makeup artist Luvekat, who transformed herself into “Zombie Joker Babe” using body paint.
Fandom is everywhere these days, and now it’s on the football field, too. NFL wide receiver Mohamed Sanu of the Cincinnati Bengals recently posted an awesome photo to his Instagram account, showing off his custom Joker-themed cleats.
The cleats, which appear to be hand painted, feature Heath Ledger’s Joker from “The Dark Knight.” Tally marks surround the shoe, including the Nike logo on the back. While one side features the Joker’s face, the other side asks the famous question “Why so serious?”
Leave it to the Good Smile Company to discover that perfect blend of creepy and adorable with its Nendoroid Joker: Villain’s Edition figure.
Based on the Joker as played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, the Clown Prince of Crime has been shrunk to Nendoroid-size, while retaining all of the homicidal charm of the original. Featuring two equally alarming expressions, the Joker also boasts a purple trench coat with movable back, left and right sides, to allow for greater posing.
You may recall Lianne Moseley, the self-trained makeup artist who turns fans into faithful recreations of superheroes. However, she’s not the only one using cosmetics to make people look as if they stepped out of a comic book.
A hairstylist and freelance artist for MAC Cosmetics, Argenis Pinal uses makeup and body paint to similarly impressive effect, transforming ordinary (if well-sculpted) mortals into the likes of She-Hulk, Superman, Wonder Woman, Jean Grey, Carnage, Green Lantern, Wolverine and Cyborg Superman. Heck, even J. Jonah Jameson — now a blond! — spends some time beneath the brush.
After countless defeats at the hands of his arch-nemesis over the past 75 years, The Joker finally discovers the secret to defeating the Batman: more firepower. Or does he?
In this amazing stop-motion short, created by counter656 over the course of 20 days using nearly 3,500 images, S.H. Figuarts versions of the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime go at it, mano a mano, until the supervillain calls in the big guns — a trio of Gundams.
Sure, Stefanos Anagnostopoulos could’ve bought a Joker mask based on Greg Capullo’s Batman design. But why do that when he can simply make his own? Although not from his own skin, of course …
The designer, whom you may remember from that incredible 3D-printed Ant-Man helmet, decided to turn his attention to DC Comics, which led him to Capullo and Scott Snyder’s “Death of the Family” storyline and that gruesome Joker mask.
While many of us might stumble across a piece of driftwood on the beach and simply see something to further clutter up our shelves or mantles, French artist Ann Foucher envisions whimsical characters like an ogre, a farmer, Batman and Robin, and Darth Vader (yes, the Dark Lord of the Sith can be whimsical; maybe).
Known for his work on classic films like “An American Werewolf in London” and “Men in Black,” special effects legend Rick Baker set his sights on a pet project of his own: recreating the Joker from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman story, “Death of the Family.”
On Twitter, Baker shared a few snapshots of his Capullo-influenced design as it progressed, from its grayscale concept to its full color rendering. Though there have been several iterations of the character, Capullo’s particular version of the Joker removed the skin for his own face and wore it like a mask, and Baker reflects that in his creepy design.
