Action figures –*cough*dolls*cough* — of the late Heath Ledger as the Joker are flying off the shelves of America’s stores – and his final film Batman: The Dark Knight hasn’t even opened yet!
Scores of frenzied fans lined up outside Manhattan’s Toys ‘R’ Us in Times Square at 4 am to get their itchy paws on the felonious figurine!
The Heath Joker, already a collector’s item ‘classic’, retails for $9.99 but is garnering $55 on e-Bay when coupled with a Batman doll.
A Mattel spokesman said the dolls were being delivered to outlets all across America – some stores getting shipments, before others.
Holy Mass Marketing!
