Cesar Romero‚Äôs take on the Joker for the Batman ‚Äė66 TV show is iconic‚ÄĒbut the very obvious moustache he refused to shave for the role, barely obscured with white face paint, is almost as famous as he is. Thankfully, Hot Toys remembered this crucial detail when bringing Romero‚Äôs Joker to action figure life.

Revealed at a special Batman-themed Hot Toys event in Japan called Batman 100%, the figure joins Hot Toys‚Äô previously released Batman ‚Äė66 Batman and Robin figures. Unsurprisingly for a Hot Toys figure, it looks great‚ÄĒbut seriously, the real joy here is that they‚Äôve kept Romero‚Äôs painted moustache in the head sculpt. It‚Äôs hilarious, but speaks to the ridiculous detail these figures have.


The delightful-looking upcoming Batman ‚Äė66 animated movie has seemingly erased the moustache from the Joker‚Äôs look (presumably because it‚Äôs no longer going to be Romero playing the character), so it‚Äôs nice to see it live on in action figure form. Any other accessory included‚ÄĒeven the Total Dehydrator!‚ÄĒis just a bonus on top of this.

No details about when he’ll be available have been released yet, but we’ll let you know when there’s more.
