Heath Ledger ‘Joker’ Bust Set For Debut Later This Year

by Thomas Tuna

From Cesar Romero to Jack Nicholson to Joaquin Phoenix, the maniacal Joker has been brought to life on the small and big screen by some of our finest actors.

But what Heath Ledger did with The Batman’s arch-enemy in 2008’s The Dark Knight? That was movie magic.

And now Blitzway and Prime 1 Studio have captured the Oscar winner’s electrifying performance in a chilling 1/3-scale Joker bust that is available for pre-orders for a 2021 fourth quarter release, according to news.toyark.com.

The bust–priced at $299–stands more than 10 inches tall and can be used as a stand-alone display or as interchangeable pieces for the previously announced The Joker 1/3-scale statue.

The collectible–part of the Museum Masterline Series–comes with a Dark Knight-themed base, the trademark Joker playing card Ledger displayed in the film and a Joker portrait.

The Dark Knight–directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan–was the second installment in Nolan’s famous The Dark Knight Trilogy. The film–starring Ledger, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman–received eight Academy Award nominations, with Ledger winning for Best Supporting Actor. A box office hit, The Dark Knight grossed more than $1 billion on a $185-million budget.
