Batman The Dark Knight The Joker with Crime Scene Evidence Action Figure by Mattel


Muchas veces pienso que para ser coleccionista, uno debe ser un poco demente (probablemente lo de "poco" es solo un eufemismo). 

Hay personas que no dejan de verme como si fuera un bicho raro (aunque eso no depende tanto de mi afición), por eso creo que algo (o mucho) de locura está bien para poder convivir con personas habituadas a la uniformidad y el aburrimiento (por eso tengo tan pocos amigos =PPPPP).

Sin embargo, hay personajes cuya demencia es una forma aceptable de cordura, ellos ya han cruzado los linderos de la razón y por ello cualquier acto -incluso sanguinario- les resulta plenamente justificado, en aras de poner en práctica los designios de su mente retorcida. 


No sé, pero siento una extraña admiración por este personaje y en especial por la absolutamente extraordinaria interpretación de Heath Ledger en la no menos extraordinaria cinta dirigida por Christopher Nolan: The Dark Knight. 

Este es un villano tan real, que duele y se acerca o incluso supera las más delirantes visiones que algunos reputados escritores de cómic, le han dado a uno de los más recalcitrantes enemigos de Batman.
 

Esta figura del Guasón, fue un inesperado regalo de mi otra hermana (tengo 2), para Navidad =DDDDD y ya sé que muchas personas la tienen, pero para mi es muy especial, así que la publico con placer. 

Con apenas 6" de alto es una pieza muy bien lograda, el trabajo en su rostro es excelente y su nivel de articulación bastante decente (19 puntos). Además viene acompañada por una carta de estilo muy retro y una bolsa de evidencia (que la verdad no entendí muy bien cuál fue su propósito...) HEHEHE... 

El Storm Trooper fue un regalo de un apreciado amigo mío... =D

ENGLISH

Many times I think that for being a collector, you must be a tad insane (probably that of "a tad" is just an euphemism). 


Some people don’t stop to look at me as I were a weirdo (although it doesn’t depend so much on my hobby) so, I think that some (or a lot) of madness is fine to live with people used to the uniformity and boredom (that’s why I have so few friends =PPPPP).

However, there are characters whose dementia is an acceptable form of sanity, they have already crossed the boundaries of reason and therefore any act -even bloody- seems entirely justified, in order to implement the plans of their twisted minds. 


I don’t know, but I feel a strange admiration for this character and specially for the absolutely extraordinary performance of Heath Ledger in the no less extraordinary film directed by Christopher Nolan: The Dark Knight. 

This is a villain so real, that it hurts and he gets closer or even surpasses the wildest visions that some renowned comic’s writers, have given to one of the most recalcitrant enemies of Batman.

This figure of The Joker, was an unexpected gift from my other sister (I have 2), for Christmas =DDDDD and I already know that many people have it, but for me is very special, so I publish it with pleasure. 


With barely 6" high is a very well made piece, the work on his face is excellent and it has a pretty decent level of articulation (19 points). It also comes accompanied by a card with a very retro style and a bag of evidence (which I really don’t understand what was its purpose...) HEHEHE... 

The Storm Trooper was a gift from an appreciated friend of mine... =D

So lucky of you to receive many gifts during the festive seasons. Somehow, I prefer action figure over 12" as they are easier to handle for playability.

& that’s exactly what i avoid from figures... 12" or more is too big for my taste... HEHEHE to b honest Dennis, i received a lot of gifts both from my family, friends & myself, so it will take some time to give’em their 15 minutes of fame here XD

I have never seen that Stormtrooper before, looks really cool. Can you tell more about it? Also it is nice when family understand that, as a collector, you have to have toys during the holiday... birthdays... any occasion really.

well CB i hav no info bout this figure, so sorry =(... what i can say bout it is that, the friend/fellow collector that imports almost all my figures gifted me this guy, i don´t even remember the brand (if i hav the time, i’ll confirm this info...), i just saw it in his store & i told him that i liked so he just gave me the figure =D... OFC it comes without the "display base" & believe or not is the top of a bottle of perfume HEHEHE... it’s almost 3" high & very detailed for its size & what caught my attention was precisely its blue translucent color =O

Cool, thanks! It sort of reminds me of the little pack ins from the Hasbro stuff, but at three inches it would be bigger, huh, I'll have to see what I can dig up on it as well, this is going to be fun.
