Do you remember last year when we showed you The Joker from the artists over at Hot Toys? Now take a look at this bad ass toy! You can almost hear him saying ‘I am going to kill you’, then posting it on Youtube because I am mother fucking Mickey Rourke a.k.a Whiplash, from the upcoming Iron Man 2 film.

His tattoos are more life like then the ones I have. WOW! I think I am in love, and I am not even a fan of this character! But he it is such a sexy looking beast! The release date for this bad ass toy is early Q3 of 2010. If Hot Toys would like to send us one I will be more than happy to review it . Since I don’t have the money for these kind of collectibles in my bank account… damn you phone bill.
