The Lowdown on Throwdown – Batman vs Joker Game from Funko

We are always excited to get a new press release from our friends at Funko and they have a real talent for catching us off guard with their announcements.  Every time we think they are gonna zig, they zag. Today, they didn’t just come out of left-field with something – they were in a completely different sport… in a good way!

You are not prepared for this. Trust me.


Here is a breakdown of Throwdown:

    • Board and Pieces come in 12″ Vinyl Figural Packaging
    • Each Game comes with two 2.5″ Collectible Vinyl Figure Game Pieces (Batman & Joker)
    • Beat your opponent by using Combat Cards, Battle Cards, Boost Coins and Battle Dice
    • Easy to Play

P.S. – Watch for booster packs to collect more Combat Cards and Collectible Game Piece Characters.


This new game is scheduled for an August 8th release. Wait – that’s yesterday. Again with the sneakiness! Funko managed to keep this a secret til the last second.

Although most of these are listed as pre-orders still, I’m sure that will change quickly.  Here is a list of places where you can order the new Batman vs Joker Throwdown game, along with pricing. (tax + shipping is not calculated here – but you know that)
