Academy Award winner Jared Leto‘s highly controversial interpretation of The Joker for Suicide Squad has been immortalized in 1/6th scale! Hot Toys has revealed the official collectible figure; clad in all its Arkham Asylum finery and slated to be one of the Toy Fair Exclusive items for this year. The figure is, of course, movie-accurate, and captures Leto’s Joker image in his Arkham Asylum get-up. The amount of detail on this collectible is intense. His straitjacket is tailored and underwent weathering effects, the head sculpt has been newly sculpted, and special paint applications were done to capture every little bit of his Joker essence. A specially designed Arkham Asylum backdrop is also included.

DC Comics is flipping the script on the term “bad guys” this summer with Suicide Squad, where a secret government agency grants clemency to recruited imprisoned super-villains for their services rendered in dangerous, world-saving missions. So before you get to see him on the big screen, here are some more specs of Leto’s special brand of Joker in figurine form (along with pictures!):
