Granted, I’m partial to the idea that Joker was an out-of-work comedian rather than a gangster before his acid swim (as in “The Killing Joke”), but I really enjoy the few images we’ve scene of Joker as Jack in the animated style.
Obviously, the base is a modified Machine Gun Joker figure. In order to differentiate this from the original base, I opted to make Jack an amalgam of old and new school designs. Thus, I gave him the current head shape, while adorning him with a bowler as seen in “Mask of the Phantasm.”
His clothing limited to black and white, he tends to fade from attention on the shelf, which is exactly what I feel a Jack Napier figure should do.
