Thanks to Shaun for the link and heads' up. Like he speculated, Hot Toys indeed DID screw early collectors over by re-releasing another joker, with a new headsculpt and additional grenades, otherwise similiar Joker to the first release.
I honestly wonder how collectors will be able to keep up with this licence milking madness. Whilst most still admire Hot Toys for its quality, four jokers from a single movie licence is way too much for many to cope.
And its a pretty feeble attempt to console MMS series collectors who bought the original joker by naming this new Joker under the MMS DX series.
i will honestly consider heavily whether or not to pursue these the two upcoming joker DX series, considering limited shelf space and financial resources.

* Applauds * Yes Hot Toys, you did it again, you milked the cow dead and dry yet again. No, we love it to bits that's why we're gonna do overtime at work, slaving our asses and selling our souls to the devil own this little piece of movie magic and pop culture of an actor we so respect.
But please make this the last? we don't know how much longer our pockets and wallets can take.
you still have my utmost patronage, respect and support
If Shaun's speculation on a new revamped original joker is true. I'm gonna quit my job and chalk up new career path in bank heisting and stick-ups.
First off, i'd need to assemble a team of disposable fellow cronies, just like the Joker. anyone interested, PM or leave a comment.
Fellow toy collectors with prior or no experience are most welcomed. Training provided. Pay negotiable.

To be honest, i am pretty hyped up about Resident Evil 5 ever since i got my hands on the toy, or rather ever since i heard Hot Toys are making RE5 line, which made me tempted to play the game. And since the game was helluva of the word FUN, i was expecting a really fantastic figure to go along.
However i must say that the first peek at these figures are somewhat disappointing. Sheva certainly doesn't look spot on...(side profile wise) and chris redfield looks like he's lost a considerable amount of weight?
BUT FRET NOT! knowing hot toys standards they'd most definitely improve on their designs as it goes along, something akin to Predator line's Dutch/Arnold Schwarzengger headsculpt.
So till the official pictures are released, i'd keep my fingers crossed and wait patiently!

Capcom's cheesy and somewhat campy dialogue returns, as expected though it narrates the storyline well.

Being the definitive figure of Iron Man 1, ( because you wont' see it again in iron man 2) i felt that it was a pity i did not order this figure. Financial planning is a b*tch really. Can't we all have the money we want to buy TOYS ONLY?
GOING TO PREORDER
i dare you say no to this figure...
