I wasn't sure about Jared Leto's Joker in the early images. The full Suicide Squad movie trailer didn't help. This week I was there when Mattel debuted the official action figures and nope, still not feelin' it. I'm keen on the movie as a thing. The Suicide Squad comics have always been a lot of fun, and I'm hopeful that spirit lives on in the film. But this?
Nope. Not liking this. It's a little better smaller in a purple jacket.
He's goofy. In fact, you know who's scarier than the Joker in this line? This guy.
Take the human mouth away from Batman and suddenly you start to get why the criminals have been pissing themselves all these years. That's damn creepy
I guess it makes sense. Batman's not the hero of this picture. Will Smith is the hero of this picture. That's why Mattel's showing off a 30cm Will Smith.
As well as a 15cm Will Smith. Not sure which of the two is more realistic. I guess we'd have to ask Jada.
I did my best to get shots of the other three characters shown from the 15cm line, but it wasn't easy. Imagine 200 tubby bearded men armed with Canon cameras all trying to snap shots of figures on a display cart with wheels. There was falling. And pushing. And smelling. I helped.
The line is very keen on coats. Trench coats, short cut leather jackets, that sort of thing
And some characters have no jackets at all, like this lifelike rendition of Willem Dafoe. It's weird, as he's not in the movie, but excellent likeness.
Yes, I know. Several characters are missing from the initial line-up. One in particular. Where's the Harley?
There you go. Maybe not the one you were looking for, but there's so many it really doesn't matter.
Look for the Suicide Squad figures in stores well before the movie, because that's how Mattel does.
