Can someone who has the Mattel Arkham joker that came in the two pack with Robin post a side by side of him with any of the DCUC standard batman figures please?

The reason is I was looking at getting the hush Alfred figure but would like it to have DCUC articulation, so thought I could maybe customise that joker and get a cast of the Alfred head as long as it's not too tall.

Hey Elvis, you might pm Captain Collector. He might be able to do that for you.

Mattel's Arkham figures are considerably taller than DCUC. I'm not exactly sure where my Arkham Joker is at the moment but I'd say the difference in scale is about comparable to DCUC to the movie masters.

That Joker is kinda tall when compared to DCUC figures. And to make matters worst (or better, depending on your P.O.V.) there's been a run on Arkham Robins. So that set is now very expensive to get.

My advice, do what the guys at mint condition did and don't reinvent the wheel. In other words... get a cheap Mad Love Joker from ebay, remove the flower, add a bow tie and swap heads.

Easy peasy.

Just put a bid in for one of these black tux Jokers from China. If I win, I'll just need to get a casting of the Alfred head from someone!!

That noggin looks a bit large on that body, would a re-painted Sinestro head be a better fit?

That's not a bad idea, but I'd need to find a Sinestro that wasn't sculpted with an angry or evil look on his face.
