A new Australian toy company known as Geek X is developing new officially licensed line of DC Comics collectibles. The collector focused company aims to “bridge the gap between the Australian, US, Japanese and Chinese markets and to reduce the price points“. They will feature their own in-house designers and sculptors, hoping to make collecting rewarding and affordable. One of their first items will be a bust featuring a hybrid of The Joker and Batman, that they are calling BXJ. Their BXJ 1/2 Scale Bust stands at roughly 16.5″ tall, and is cast in polystone resin. The bust is hand painted and includes an acrylic display case.
Pricing and release dates have not been announced yet for the BXJ Bust. Pre-orders are expected to go live “soon”, and we’re awaiting word on who will be carrying the products. For now, you can check out photos and details for the bust after the jump.

‘You can’t kill me without becoming like me. I can’t kill you without losing the only human being who can keep up with me.’
Batman and Joker are foes on opposite ends of the spectrum in every way: appearance, morality and beliefs. Their storied history has seen much blood shed, tragedy and chaos; a volatile recipe that’s lead to an everlasting relationship and perhaps even friendship.
Geek X have sewn Batman and Joker together, to illustrate their chaotic bond, their animosity and their attachment to each other.
The half-bust symbolises their duality through the use of the stitches, keeping Batman and The Joker from separating. Their pain is shared equally, constant and fierce, and yet, they cannot survive without each other. On the base, Batman’s Batarang shadows The Joker’s calling card, completing the union of calamity.
Standing approximately 42 cm tall, the Joker/Batman 1:2 scale hybrid bust (BXJ) is made of polystone resin, hand painted and encased in a beautiful acrylic case.
