My Top Ten Fave Toys of 2008: Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece The Joker

Posted: Wednesday, December 24, 2008 by Shaun in Labels: , , , , ,

1. Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece The Joker

Despite Marvel's double volley of their amazing Iron Man and decent Hulk, as well as the charisma of Robert Downey Jr and talent of Edward Norton, The Dark Knight pwned Marvel in the movie stakes this year.

It was tough deciding which figure from Hot Toys' TDK line would make the cut for this list. I wanted to place them all in but that would mean total dominance of one toy line.

Upon watching the movie, I felt that The Joker made the film, and they might as well have used his name as the movie's title. Does he look like the late Heath Ledger? No. Is he an engineering marvel? Of course not. Does he epitomise the brilliance of the film? Most definitely.

Look at the other figures from this toy line:

And that's a wrap, my friends. Here's a quick recap of my list of fave toys from 2008.

10. Coca Cola Miniature Convenience Chain Series

9. DC Direct 13 Inch The Joker
