Neener neener neener neener Bat-Joker!
Who knows what the real reason for the figure's cancellation was, or if this is even a real story (my research is my MEMORY! Take THAT, journalism!) but whatever the case may be, I have been saddened by the void in my toy collection of a Joker dressed as Batman ever since.
So imagine my joy when a couple months ago Lootcrate sent subscribers an exclusive Joker dressed as Batman Funko POP! and then imagine my disappointment when I got word of it's existence after it had already been sent out and my chance of owning it for a decent price was gone.
What a pal! Clearly he doesn't remember the time after High School when he passed out at a party and I drew and wrote on his face with a sharpie and he went home the next morning and sat down at the breakfast table and his dad said 'so, did you have a good time last night?' and he tried to act all cool like he hadn't been drinking and his dad finally said 'go look in a mirror.'
I don't remember exactly what I wrote on his forehead, but I am pretty sure I drew a wiener on his cheek.
It took a few months before I was finally able to get back to my old hometown and get this guy in-hand, but I finally did and I didn't write on anyone's face in the process.
Or did I?
This Joker dressed as Batman Funko POP! is pretty darn cool. He is ridiculously gaudy just as he should be. The colors are garish and an assault on the eyes and I love it.
FunFact: BatJoker is the first and so far only Funko POP! I own that is not a Harley Quinn POP! I don't even own a Batman POP! Crazy, I know!
