    Joker's Ha-Hacienda Playset (Lotsa pics)

    Been working on this one for a long time...originally it was all going to be built by hand with trap doors and slides and what not but that got to be waaay too cumbersome. Thanks to some Dida Displaysets from Scott, I was able to redesign everything and I think it worked out pretty good. It's still 3 stories though.



    We begin with the former factory of the Laughwell Novelty Company. The Laughwell Co. was shut down years ago for unsafe toy manufacturing practices and the building has since been condemed.



    The warnings and toxic waste tend to keep most folks away....except for...

    THE JOKER! Yes the Clown Prince of Crime has taken over the building as his Ha-Hacienda.



    Upstairs in his playroom, The Joker plots his next caper...



    ...vainly admires himself in his fun house mirror...



    ...and throws a couple of darts at his Robin dartboard and gets ready for a few rounds with his Batman Bop Bag.



    Just then, the alarm sounds! An intruder has been captured on level 2!
    It's that Caped Crumb himself, Batman! A quick throw of the switch and Batman is doomed in the Inescapable Doom Trap!




    But just to be safe, the Joker exits through the secret wall in his basement!



    Batman escapes but it's too late...somehow the Joker has gotten out of a sealed room! Better luck next time, Bats!

    Holy cow! I am so thrilled to see this I can't tell you. So great to see some new art in a Dida Display! That is very cool, Anthony. I love the splash art "Enter if you dare". Super fun!

    Fun stuff! I really like how this turned out. Inside and out. So many ideas can be done with these playsets.

    I'm speechless. There's so many cool things in there I don't know where to begin. I'll just repeat what I started with

    Wow, great idea. Love all the details in the pics. I did almost think Mr. J was on the can in that one, tho.
