#HotToys Sneak Peek of The Joker (Batman Imposter Version)
September 8, 2016

To commemorate the opening of the Suicide Squad movie and the Batman 100% Hot Toys exhibition in Japan on Sep 10, we are ready to launch this highly sought-after collectible figure for the occasion, and fans visiting the exhibition will be among the world’s first to pre-order this EXCLUSIVE item!

Inspired by the record-breaking DC Comics movie Suicide Squad, the 1/6th scale figure of The Joker’s impersonation of Batman combines an original design by Hot Toys with our brand’s usual high standard of sophisticated craftsmanship. The figure features The Jokers’ unique tattoo prints on a Batsuit in the iconic super-villain’s signature purple and green colors, and comes in a stylized packaging design worthy of the Dark Knight’s most deadly nemesis.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
