#13: The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures - Red Hood

Ever since The Killing Joke, it's more or less been accepted canon that the Joker was operating under the Red Hood identity prior to getting dumped in a vat of chemicals, and that even survived into the New 52. So that's basically what you're getting here, a guy in a nice suit with a cape and dome over head head, armed with a couple pistols. Feeling for the dome or the pistols is probably the best way to find him. Interestingly, the head underneath the dome is the modern Jason Todd Red Hood mask. I'm not sure if this is true, but I'm assuming all the characters in this minifigures series will be in the movie. So how does Red Hood figure into it? I would guess a flashback for the Joker, since he seems to be the primary antagonist of the movie. Since this version of Batman is just starting to work with Dick Grayson as Robin, having Jason Todd wouldn't make any sense. So the Jason Todd head here is probably just a fun Easter egg. I guess we'll find out in a couple weeks!
