Hey guys. I working on making a batman beyond r Aeturn of the joker Joker figure. I am undecided about the buck. Any suggestions for the buck? I'm using the joker head from the canary- batman- joker 3 pack. Please help! Thanks!

You might consider an Orion buck, because of the wide chest, and lack of raised details on the figure. You could sand it down, spray it black with purple highlights.

I would also think about using the hands from Bizarro or Scarecrow as well. I might just try one myself!

With the hands how could you take them off? I know the arms come off but what about the hands?

I would see about matching the Joker head with an "old Man" Bruce Wayne buck and repaiting the hands & tunic. Since both the background & foreground are mostly black, it should be fairly easy. If you prefer a skinnier Joker, then use Shade.

What I do is take a sharp exacto knife, heat up the blade under a lighter for a minute or so, then slice off the hands from the figure. It makes a clean cut when done right, and goes through the plastic like butter. Then just take some super glue, or tiny bit of kneadatite, and position the hands on the arms.

I'm sure this will get moved but I'll post anyway.

I used the Nightwing torso. It has the wider shoulders and the narrow waist.

Looking at it now, my version might need some updating. I still like the torso though.

I used a shade body and just painted the hands white with black nails to create mine. I used a blue tux Red Hood Joker head with the hair dremeled down.

With all respect to those who did use a Shade/Flash/Atom body, I think he looks too skinny. Orion is too bulky. I've seen some nice ones using the Old Man Wayne body or the Two-Face/Gen. E body because Joker didn't have visible muscles in ROTJ. It was a body-suit and it looks pretty angular, so the straight lines of that body might work best.

You know what, I change my mind. I will use a Bruce Wayne buck in stead. It seems to be broad enough for the joker

I hate to seem like a total shill here, but if you need a head, I got one you might want to check out.
Also the Shade body is about as perfect a body as you can get without having to so any painting other than the hands as has been mentioned previously.
