    Medicom or Hot Toys???

    Just wanted to get everyones opinion on this. I collect most of the new high end figs that come out and obviously Hot Toys doesnt make Star Wars figures but my question is directed at the new Dark Knight Batman and Joker figures.

    With price aside, which ones look the most accurate and seem to be the better figure overall??? Medicom or Hot Toys?

    Thanks!

    Also I think that EPII Medicom Clone Trooper that came out looks pretty cool with the EPII Helmet.

    I haven't seen either in person, but from pictures I've seen, I can say this:

    Hot Toys Joker: The outfit is perfect, everything seems to be accurate and lays nicely, but that headsculpt leaves something to be desired.

    Medicom Joker: The headsculpt is the best I've seen, looks great, but the coat looks horrible. Also will probably be a little short.

    DC Direct Joker (yeah, you didn't mention this one, but I thought I'd include it): Absolutely great headsculpt, but the hair looks off. The clothing looks pretty good, but it's 13" tall. However you may be able to transfer the clothes and head to a 12" body and still have it look good. But don't even think about getting their Batman. Blech.

    As for Batman, Both look great, so I say whichever Batman you get should depend on which Joker you get, so they're in better scale to each other.

    Hot Toys is making a Bank Heist Joker and it comes with two heads, the machine gun used later in the film, a duffel bag filled with grenades, and the clown mask.

    One of the two heads seems to be an "updated" version of the purple suit head. It looks FAR SUPERIOR to the purple suit head version that is out now...

    I have some semi-leaked pictures somewhere around here...let me see what I can dig up...

    The Hot Toys Joker and Batman are going to be amazing! I've seen some great pics like the ones above. They are supposedly not going to be sold in the US from what I've heard from a very close friend who has an amazing collectables shop out here in Redlands.
    PM me if you'd like his info, he is well in the know about anything and everything Medi Com, Hot Toys, SideShow, Gentle Giant you pretty much name it he has it or can give you info about it. And very cool guy to boot.
    I could be wrong but with that said, they will be hard to come by and expensive if found on Ebay I bet.

    I actually own the Hot Toys Joker bust. The head sculpt is amazing and, by the looks of it, the Bank Heist Joker is going to be even more amazing. As for the figures, I think Hot Toys is the one to go with. Their face sculpt is just dead on.

    Here's a pic of my Joker bust.

    Haven't seen these before today, but I just got my Briareos(appleseed) from Hot Toys and I must say, it's the best thing in my collection. Very well made and accurate, so I'm sure anything from Hot Toys is a sure bet.
