Trickster Minifigure free with new Justice League Movie

Posted by ,

I'm a bit late reporting this, but it was confirmed over the weekend that The Trickster minifig that was first seen on Chinese site TaoBao in December will be free with LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Attack of the Legion of Doom! DVD and Blu-Ray which is released at the end of August in the USA, probably later elsewhere.

An image of the minifig follows after the break:

Very cool minifig and Mark Hammill gets a minifig that's not based on Luke Skywalker for once!

Excellent. Now I can recreate the scene in The Flash where he goes "I am your father!" to Trickster #2.

@dmm32552 Unless you count the Joker.

^ Hmm...Technically correct, but I will always have a hard time associating the Joker with Mark Hammill when the role has been made iconic by people like Ledger and Nicholson. At least with Trickster, Hammill is breaking in the character and has played him in live action in The Flash TV series and voiced him in stuff like this.

@dmm32552 - I would argue that Mark Hamill's Joker is the most iconic of all, since he's played the character longer than anyone else.

Iconism isn't something that is argued; it must be apparent in order to fit the definition. If you asked 100 random people on the street what or who they think of when they think of The Joker, you'd be lucky to find one who replied with "Mark Hammill." Similarly, if I asked the same people what they think of when they think of Mark Hammill, you'd be lucky to find a handful who didn't immediately respond with "Luke Skywalker."

Yes, in general most people will think of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. It's certainly the first thought that comes to my mind.

However, it is quickly followed by the Joker (and then Fire Lord Ozai). In fact, when I think of the Joker I think of Mark Hamill and Heath Ledger. Nicholson is usually the third name that pops into my head.

So I think the case can be made that Mark Hamill is indeed an iconic Joker. Just my two cents on the matter.

Aw, the Trickster - reminds me of me. :D

Still have to get that Batzarro figure from the previous movie, where can I order it online in Europe? :)

That's weird, I can't find this movie on Amazon US to pre-order it.

He may be a portrayal of the Joker, but are any of the figures technically branded to be HIM? I don't recall any of them being his version of the Joker, therefore, Luke and this figure would probably be the only ones representing that individual. But voicing a character doesn't mean the figure has to represent the actor (even though I know they put in all of their effort to play that character). Therefore you could say just Luke is Mark's LEGO figure.

I know I'll get some arguments on this and that's fine. I won't be changing my mind, and I'm sure you won't either.

Either way, the character looks neat. I'll have to look into this dvd.
