NYCC 2012: Kotobukiya's Joker: The Killing Joke statue

A sculpt that will definitely make you smile

I'll just come out and say it: Kotobukiya's Joker: The Killing Joke statue (announced at SDCC) is beautiful. Even with that little minion stand between Joker's legs. Regardless, the statue (based on the cover artwork done by Brian Bolland for Alan Moore's Batman: The Killing Joke) features The Joker, a smile upon his face as he wields his camera. For the statue, he's standing with one foot propped up on a crate of explosives, that tiny minion beneath his feet. In the gallery, you'll find a few photos showing off the sculptwork of the Joker, including his clothing down to the individual seams.

What's even cooler, though, is this statue comes with lighting (the spotlight flickers on and off on the base) and sound (from what we were told, it'll be a camera shutter sound). Those two elements really make an excellent statue that much better, in my book, and I'd have to think Batman and Joker fans will want this in their collection. Do you?
