Arrival- Gotham City Stories- Joker Display

I hesitate to really call this thing a statue, the boxes says it is a dimensional display piece. It’s basically a diorama of Joker mounted on a frame, you can either hang it on the wall or use the frame to display it.
The entire gimmick behind the Gotham City Stories line is that the dioramas each tell a separate story but they can also be combined to tell different or more elaborate stories. DC Direct places emphasis on collecting them all but I don’t really care for such elaborate stories myself, I am personally just after Joker and Harley Quinn. Joker is the third release in the line and he just arrived today from BigBadToyStore, Harley Quinn is the fourth in the line due out next month.

The Joker makes his joyful escape through the windows after he melted the locks with acid, with all the loot still in hand. You can still see the acid and/or Joker toxin swirling around filling the room behind him.

Joker is a limited run of only 2000, I received Joker #319. He came packaged very carefully, perhaps too carefully as it was an extreme pain in the ass to dig out all the little pieces of styrofoam from inside the display. He was sculpted by Joseph Menna, he is hand-painted cold-cast porcelain.  The display isn’t very large  (5.75 inches tall by 5.75 inched wide by 3.25 inches deep) but I think that it’s small size will actually work to it’s benefit if you wish to actually hang it on the wall, if it was much larger weight-wise it would probably not work out so well ^^;
