Wrong forum but I thought you folks might like to see an image of the new Batman animated series toys with a look at the joker.

Heres the toy pic

Whats with Jokers hair???
 
This looks fantastic! That Joker reminds me of the Joker from Arkham Asylum. This looks absolutly amazing! Happy happy happy!
 
I want to see The Penguin.

It looks like a referance to Jesters and that kind of Macabre feeling they they're associated with.
 
Perhaps if Doc Brown from Back to The Future and and Albert Einstein shared in some sort of ungodly union that concieved a child, I believe it would look something like that lameass hideous design of the Joker above.

The more I hear about this series, the less and less I like the idea of it. Rino Romano as Batman? Wrong. Kevin Michael Richardson as the Joker? Wrong. Tom Kenny as the Penguin? Well...maybe. I don't dig the Jeff Matsuda designs, and I can't see how good this show will be without the influence of the likes of Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, Alan Burnett, Curt Geda, etc.

agreed. . I'm glad to see a batman with a more progressie edgier animation style. To date, my favorite episode of TAS is the one with the kids telling the Tales of the Dark Knight, and they have the little DKR bit in there with a miller-esque interpretation of batman. I'd love to see Miller's style completely translated into animation

Yep. And this one looks like they really have the idea down. That one picture where Batman's cape litterally becomes part of the shadows on one of the buildings looks so damn cool. I can't wait for this show!

He looks like an evil jack in the box.

You say that like it's a bad thing. I think the whole Psycho Jester look really works. The guy does not look like the kind of person you would want to meet. He looks like he could rip your head off pretty easily and not hink anything of it. I personally LOVE this interperation of the Joker, ecspecailly considering that this is supposed to be Batman's early years before any of the characters relly become refined. They are supposed to be kind of raw in a sense and I think this look really works.

Oh yes I like the psycho look.I think some of Batmans villains need a more psycho look.Joker,Penguin and Riddler should in the new cartoon.
 
WTF....I guess that tank of acid did a little more to him than bleach his skin, LOL.

I think the best thing with this cartoon is not associate it to the original Batman: The Animated Series and any of its spin-offs. Sorta like the difference between Spider-Man Animated from 1995 and the MTV show. It will give you less a headache, especially if it will introduce Catwoman, already introduced in the original series in an origin episode.
 
The big difference is that the Spider-man animated series on FOX was good, and the MTV series was total crap.

This looks like it will basically be Batman's X-men Evolution. It's not really a bad thing, because Evolution though it started out bad, improved in seasons 2 and 3 when they had Curt Geda being a creative force behind the show. However it doesn't look like Geda is working on this show, and the voice actors seem really wrong for their parts. I'll remain cynical for now.
 
yes i am not liking this very much and i really do not like the batmobile, jokers hair, and the bat symbol all ick.......
 
I'm going to cry, the Joker is HORRIBLE.
 
Hmm. I like the picture of Batman and The Joker, but that damn car looks something out of an unfinished workshop, which I think the producers are striving for. Something not...finished yet.

It just doesn't look like your traditional Batmobile.
 
Ya, that's the worst looking Joker I've ever seen. I know they want younger and edgier or whatever, but that's just ******ed. The could have made him newer and fresher without making him look like a jester. If that's what his hair looks like now, then I can only imagine what the look must have beeen before the chemicals. And what the hell is with all the yellow? If this crap is what Mr. Nolan has in mind as is this is all loosley based off his work, then we could have some problems. YOU BETTER PUT THE HOPE BACK IN YOUR WORK MR. NOLAN WITH SOME REAL PICTURES OF WHAT YOUR DOING!!!!!!!
