|Affiliations:||The Legion of Doom|
|Voiced by:||Frank Welker|
This jester-like incarnation is believed to be Jack Nimball. Toyman's favorite book is Jack and the Beanstalk.
During the 1970s, Nimball assumed the identity of Toyman during the period in which Schott retired from his criminal career. Nimball, wore a jester costume and used a similar modus operandi to Schott's Toyman.
Unfortunately, this version of Toyman proved short-lived. In November 1976, Jack Nimball is murdered by Winslow Schott. After killing Nimball, Schott resumes his crime career as the Toyman.
The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show (1979-1981)Edit
A similar rendition of the Toyman appears a few years later in an episode of The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show, simply titled "Toyman." He is still dressed like a jester, but this time his costume is now red, green, and yellow, and he has a wind up spring on his back. It's possible that this version of Toyman is just an android created by Jack Nimball.
