Nolan-verse fans rejoice! The Dark Knight (Ledger) Joker and The Dark Knight Rises (Hathaway) Catwoman are now available for pre-order.
Cinema-goers will remember The Dark Knight as Heath Ledger's swan song, an incredible ending to a career cut painfully short. Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai Joker should likewise be excellent (provided that a crappy paint job doesn't ruin an outstanding mold!). The color photo currently listed with the pre-order may be lackluster, but I'd still wager that the PAK (Ledger) Joker will be among the best figures being released in 2013.
Less iconic is TDKR's (Anne Hathaway) Catwoman. While I greatly enjoy the look of this figure, I feel obliged to point out that the costume seems to lack the kind of texturing seen in both the film and on other companies' TDKR Catomwan figures. The PAK Catwoman still looks pretty good, but the level of quality is more in line with what we've come to expect from Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai line. Consequently I don't foresee myself owning this one excluding extenuating impulse buying.
Is anybody planning on not picking up the TDK Joker? If so, why? Please answer in at least 300 words.
