New merchandise for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker will soon be arriving in the form of an incredibly detailed statue.
Joaquin Phoneix’s Joker was, of course, one of last year’s biggest surprise hits. While the film was not without its detractors, the movie would go on to gross over $1B worldwide making it the most profitable DC Comics film ever made. The film would also win two Acadamy Awards, including Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix, making it the first comic book movie to win such an Oscar since the 2008 film, The Dark Knight.
The merchandising for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker was, of course, relatively limited. This was, after all, a hard R-rated film and was not likely to move as much merchandise as its family-friendly counterparts. However, a new statue of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker has been revealed from Prime 1 Studio. The statue will have more details than the typical action figure and will cost $1,299. The statue will be available for preorder tomorrow but unfortunately will not ship until the spring of next year. You can see a full list of the statue’s specifications below:
Statue Size approximately 28 inches tall [H 70cm W 35cm D 38.2cm]

Here is the official synopsis for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker:
Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
