‘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.

About Geek X:
With humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Geek X has grown organically and vertically integrated into a diverse portfolio, primarily represented by two divisions; one a distribution company launched in 2015, the other, a manufacturing and licensed merchandise wing with product going to market in 2019.
From the directors to the warehouse team they are all collectors. This is advantageous as not only is their product knowledge extraordinary, but also their goals are not orientated towards making the largest return on investment possible, but rather to build a community around the product.
They have an in-house graphic/sculpt design team that is innovative, creative and thrives on all things geeky. Their buying team is young and in touch with the newest trends and even the smallest niches in their market. As a whole “they take toys very seriously!”.
One of their major aims is to bridge the gap between the Australian, US, Japanese and Chinese markets and to reduce the price points, making them more affordable and increasing both the satisfaction of current collectors, as well as opening the doors to new fans. They aim to bring to their Australian consumers some of the greatest and newest product that is currently unavailable in the Southern Hemisphere. This will propagate well for both the end consumer and the original licensor/manufacturer developing mutually beneficial relationships.
