    Hey, I really want this guy but I would like the original recalled version.

    Do you all know what are the key ways to distinguish him from the re-release?

    also, is he still going for the outrageous 100$ scalped price point?

    Thanks!

    He was recalled?? I'm pretty sure I got the first run Joker. I think the only differences are tiny modifications to the package.

    ok after much surfing through ebay and google:

    initial recalled jokers had no air vents on the plastic to joker's left side.
    reissues had 7 holes running down.

    also, his face is supposed to be less scary but eBay photos (to my astonishment) can be very decieving.

    so far it's been really hard to distinguish so are there any blatnt red flags out there?

    Nope. If you just want the figure than go with whatever you find instore. But if you really want the first release then I can dig mine out and describe the package and maybe take pics for you. I do remember there being a tiny hole in the lower right side of the package's back side. Or was that the left..

    I did a bunch of research on this before I got mine. The figures are unchanged. The only difference is the holes in the packaging as Wyvern stated and a couple little black stickers covering assortment numbers or something.

    Hmmm...I thought the distinguishing factor was the assortment number on the bottom. If it had M5070 as the number, it was from the re-called assortment...never heard about the air holes being a distinguishing factor as well...need to go check mine now :banghead:

    WEELLLLLLL, The package for sure for. It needs no airholes and no stickers. The faces have become more "messy" and "worn", but that is more of the wave we are seeing with the shiny new TDK Batman in the action pose.
