Soap Studio announced their long teased Joker Bank Robber will be unveiled tomorrow at Wonder Festival Shanghai 2019 and will be available for preorder at the same time.
Soap Studio is the same Hong Kong design firm that is bringing us the 1:12 scale dark knight trilogy remote control tumbler and is currently giving Mezco’s one:12 collective a run for their money.
Full text of the announcement and images are below:
1:12 action figure – The Joker (Bank Robber Ver.)
“Smile, because it confuses people. Smile, because it’s easier than explaining what is killing you inside.” The Joker
The Joker is a psychotic anarchist mastermind who portrayed himself as an agent of chaos, by turning Gotham City into turbulence and in tranquility. In the 2008 “The Dark Knight” Heath Ledger plays as the Joker, under his interpretation, the Joker became a villain with inconvenient charm and clear mastery of disguise, which allowed him to act swiftly.
This collectible figure stands approximately 16.6cm, designed after THE DARK KNIGHT (2008) bank robbery scene appearance. One highlight improvement in our 1:12 scale body is we have increased the movable joint from 27 points to 35 points, and adopt full manual painting on head sculpted which provide more realistic performance.
This figure comes with highly detail weapons and accessories used in the movie, like smoke grenade, grenades, banknotes brick, guns and watch, one of the highlights will be our duffle bag which can be zip and carry all the weapon, allow players flexibly build their own “movie stage” with our backdrop attached to the set. Facial sculpture with high simulation, meticulous painting and clothing made of real fabrics perfectly present the character played by Heath Ledger!
