Hot Toys Heath Ledger Joker 2.0 Sixth Scale Figure (DX Series)

"Why So Serious"

Probably my most anticipated figure, the Heath Ledger Joker 2.0 figure is hands down THE most amazingly detailed figure I have.  The Jack Sparrow figure comes close but this Joker figure has too much going for it.  With the numerous cool accessories and the figure's high quality detail, there were many many pictures taken.  Took me quite awhile to bring the total down to 67 from the 150 I initially took.  Yes, I know but there were so many great looking poses with the various accessories, I went overboard.  The details in some of the accessories is quite impressive as well.

Thanks to Michael Crawford's fantastic review site for pointing out some of the accessories' cool features in his Joker 2.0 review.  I normally don't press, pull or prod the various weapons for fear of breaking them so sometimes I miss these little extras.  Wasn't until I read Michael's thoroughly informative review that I realized small details like the Glock 17's slide actually works and removable magazine.  Also, the Remington 870 sawed off pump action shotgun actually pumps.  Nice.

Of course, if it's a DX series, having PERS and a generous amount of accessories is expected.  The specs and summary for this figure are as follows:
