Anton Schott, alias The Dollmaker, was a severely mentally-ill surgeon that operated in the abandoned town of Ichabod. He kidnapped children in Gotham City, bringing them to the dilapidated Schott's Toys store in Ichobod where he performed grotesque surgeries on them, transforming them into mindless doll-like slaves.
Anton was the abused son and primary victim of the psychopathic killer Winslow Schott, who was sent to prison by his son's testimony. Traumatised by the abuse and the loss of his childhood, Anton became obsessed with preserving the innocence of children. As such, he surgically operated on them to ensure that they could never grow up, turning them into loyal automatons.
His crimes were exposed when Robin tracked his victims back to his hideout. Before he could be apprehended, however, Schott was killed by a Court of Owls operative who was attempting to convert Robin to the Court's ways.
- This version of the character is exclusive to the continuity of the film Batman vs. Robin and is an adaptation of Barton Mathis. The original character was created by Tony S. Daniel and first appeared in Detective Comics (Volume 2) #1.
- Dollmaker was voiced by Weird Al Yankovic.
- While taking the name and parentage of Anton Schott, the Dollmaker is heavily based on the Batman villain Barton Mathis. Although unrelated, both characters have used the Dollmaker alias in the comic books, hence the amalgamation.
- According to Batman vs. Robin director Jay Oliva, this version of the Dollmaker cuts off the faces of his victims and keeps them in jars to preserve their youth, as an homage to the infamous scene in Detective Comics (Volume 2) #1 where his comics counterpart surgically removed the Joker's face and pinned it to a wall. This served as the basis for the crossover Batman: Death of the Family.
- This iteration of the Dollmaker shares similarities to Professor Pyg.
