I know i asked about the eyes before but are there any known issues with the DX08 or factory defects that i should be mindful of before i get way too excited about opening this figure?

Welp i finally got the figure and he is excellent. I absolutely love this figure, snapped a couple quick pics but will defintely take more when I have the time tomorrow. It is a night and day difference between the mars toys one and I'm honestly kinda surprised at how good it is. One annoyance is how tough the hands are to take out of the wrist peg, but once I got them out i just screwed in the hand just a little bit so they're just sitting there so i won't break the wrist peg or have any issues swapping hands! I also had to futz with the tie as it was below the top button which was really bothering me, but hes all perfect now PERS and all!

Welp as promised i took more photos today. I did a few shots from the movie and tried to recreate the publicity shots. This figure is so easy and fun to take photos of, you just can't take a bad pic of him.


Bats and joker just look so good together, i can't believe i actually finally have these 2. I remember seeing these years ago and always thought they were cool collector pieces that i needed to get as i was a huge batman 89 fan. Now i finally got em, and they're just truly spectacular

I really hope Mars Toys considers leaving the moving eyes out if those head sculpts. Those sculpts are tremendous. I also fear I won't be able to find them loose. I'm not buying a whole figure.

That has been my biggest pet peeve out of all the hot toys releases, I completely dislike the hat hair it always threw it off!!!

No doubt, but they were in a tough spot. They wanted to include the hat and have him be able to wear it. Including a second non-hat hair head was out of the question. It was already one of the most expensive single figures HT had ever made up till that point due to licensing. Paying $265 for a HT figure nowadays is the norm but it wasn't in 2011.

Anyway, I had mine modified. 😁

I really hope so too, the eyes honestly ruin what could've been great on the mars toys figure. They look really glassy and wide eyed
