Batman: The Dark Knight Funko POP!

Postby PopPChulo » Wed Dec 05, 2018 9:35 pm

Hey,

So I was sitting back thinking... The Dark Knight Trilogy by Christopher Nolan was an excellent series and had a lot of different characters that could be made into Funko POP! - They did the Bank Robber.. but why can't we get The Joker in Nurse Gown? As well as Bruce Wayne? or Maybe even some of the various suit interactions in the franchise.. ? I also wouldn't mind having maybe a Scarecrow based off of the film or maybe some additional Bank Robbers? -

There could also be a Pop Ride! with Joker on the Bus that he used to rob the bank. I feel like there is a missed opportunity to really dig in - also I wouldn't mind new mold of Heath Ledgers Joker! Who doesn't want a new pose? We could even have a Pop Ride with him hanging his head out the vehicle. Or maybe a Batman Vs Joker Movie Moment. .

or Joker and Bruce Wayne when they are at the party. I wouldn't mind new molds of these figures and I feel like it is a huge untapped potential that many collectors may be overlooking at this point. What do you guys think?

As much as I am a fan of Batman. I think the proverbial “the ship has passed” could sum up seeing any future pops from the Dark Knight trilogy.

There’s a greater chance to see Batman pops if Justice League 2 is made or a cameo in Suicide Squad 2.

Some I think are ok but personally I am not a fan of movie moments. But I would like to see some more characters made into pops. Definitely down for a joker in nurse outfit. Along with a scarecrow as well.

I’d rather see comic versions of Ra’s al Ghul and Talia al Ghul instead of film ones..

I love the Nolan trilogy, but I'd be okay if they didn't make any more variants from this line. Tho I do love the nurse Joker idea. I'm just burnt out from all the Batman repaints, variants, etc that's been released and I love Batman! It'd be nice to have a break.

As much as I’d imagine DC would only want the newer movies being made into merch I could definitely see a revival at the 20th anniversary or something, which 2018 is the 10th. I also feel those Nolan Batman Pops came out right before the big boom where we saw multiple series or movies as well as more per series. Two Face would have been awesome including the ones mentioned above.

Would love a movie moment but that Nurse Joker is a must for me. Really disappointed when it go canceled but would love for it to suddenly show up somewhere

I think it may be too late to see another full wave but I wouldn’t mind a few more in a smaller wave. Nurse Joker and Two-Face would be must haves for me.

They’ve done BTAS Scarecrow and Bane
I do like the idea of a Ra’s al ghul Pop and Commish Gordon but it doesn’t have to be attached or inspired to the Dark knight movie.

I have wonder this myself. So many opportunities, so many characters. As far as the ship has sailed, I disagree. Funko is making stuff for older movies. Yes, there are other newer Batman movies out there but it's still possible.

First off, I LOVE Batman...however there are some 400 plus Batman related Funko items...everything from Pops to Dorbz to Wobblers, Freddy Funko stuff, hikari, etc etc...so I really LOL when people ask for more of it...it's like Deadpool...nothing against the character itself but imo, we've had enough...just sayin...

I think Batman is overdone right now so I'm not so big into the Dark Knight series but more Superman :freddy3:

I knnow there was something about the rights to Nurse Joker. That variant is not in the style guide.

Also...there was not a Two-Face, which would be real good.

Heck nah - I' trying to get the Nurse Jokey - Even if they made it a SDCC or CON exclusive. That is a dark knight grail that should have been made but for some reason did not got created. I think that The Dark Knight is a HUGE property and one of the best batman movies arguably. I think Funko makes POP! for the most popular properties and although there is a lot of batman. There is not a lot for the Christopher Nolan Trilogy. I feel like it was really under utilized. I think there is at least opportunity for a small second wave.

Nurse Joker would be a great SDCC exclusive if anything were to made from the Dark Knight. :freddy3:
