Why so seriously cool, Lego?
Interestingly enough, this will be the first time an accurately scarred of the Ledger Joker appears in a family friendly line – Mattel created a less frightening cartoon caricature for their kids’ line of toys (while ironically leaving Two-Face horrifically half-burned in the same series), only making a screen-accurate figure in the adult-aimed Movie Masters line, while the WWE team was told that although DC/WWE crossovers are not forbidden, Rey Mysterio’s WrestleMania outfit as the Ledger Joker was off-limits because “that version of the Joker” was not appropriate to a PG audience.
Well, now you can terrorize the likes of Emmet and Batman’s Lego ex Wyldstyle with a genuinely scary, scar-faced clown, though this minifig doesn’t come cheap – you have to buy a $200 Lego Tumbler Batmobile to get him. But it’s pretty stylin’. Check it out…
