Heath Ledger's Joker figure selling out fast

Tbdjokerledger050808 Heath Ledger may be gone, but commerce lives forever. The New York Post says toy stores across town are selling out of a plastic version of the Joker from The Dark Knight so quickly, they can’t keep shelves stocked.

The $9.99 action figure has been ending up on eBay at a substantial markup, including at least one seat of the Joker and Batman going for $55. “There are none left in the warehouse, either,” a Toys R Us employee told the paper. “You will be waiting a while if you want one.”

Of course, it’s entirely possible they’re just selling out like toys from all summer blockbusters sell out, but either way, we can’t help but think it’s a pretty macabre tribute to Ledger.
