Product Spotlight: 1966 Joker Bank
About the Product: A Diamond Select Release! The clown prince of crime is now his own worst enemy! With its ability to store your pocket change, this 8" vinyl bank of The Joker is the perfect target for The Joker, who loves himself even more than he loves money. Based on the likeness of Cesar Romero as he appeared in the Batman Classic TV Series, this vinyl bust bank has a coin slot on his back and an access door in his base. Packaged in a clear polybag. Sculpted by Jean St. Jean!.
Our Take: The Joker bank is the third in the series of 1966 themed banks from Diamond Select Toys (DST). They are putting out some amazing product with their busts, but even these lower cost banks are gorgeous pieces for any collection. The stock pics of the Joker bank that I saw before having this in-hand didn't even come close to comparing to the quality of the actual sculpt. Jean St. Jean did an amazing job, as he always does, of capturing not just the likeness of the character, but the energy and the fun, as well. This one is a must have and it looks amazing on a shelf, as you can see in our image gallery below.
DST is soon coming out with Batman: TAS product, which looks to be amazing, so watch for that, and hopefully for more banks, as well! The Penguin bust is coming soon to a store near you.
