Harley Quinn – DC Super Hero Girls

My last submission for the Super Hero Girls  Harley looks great. She is one of the top three of the girls that have have come out. She looks great in her red, blue, and black outfit.

Her hair is looking rather Suicide Squad, which is timely, and a great way to go.

She comes with a mask for her face, and a hammer for her hands. She is also decked out in a pair of boots that look like they are not afraid to stomp on you.  If only she had tights. No, those legs are painted that color, and that takes her down a bit for me. This figure would have been totally amazing if she had a pair of tights instead of paint.

Play Arts Kai – Arkham City – Catwoman

Catwoman is a great character in the comics.  I am sure she is also quite good in Arkham City, but I have not played it, so I would not know.  But how could I pass up on getting Catwoman to add to my growing collection of Play Arts figures?  I can’t.   There was also ANOTHER Batman, but I think one is enough.  He takes up a LOT of room with his giant cape.

Catwoman comes with accessories, as any woman should.  A whip, an extra head with goggles down, grabbing hands, and what I like to call “scratch your eyes out” hands.  All three sets of hands fit well.  The grabbing hands really hold on to the whip.   I wish we would have gotten a second expression with the second head.  The only difference is the goggle placement.  I would have loved an angry face to go with the claw hands.


She has really good flexibility with movement in the wrists, elbows and lots of movement in the shoulders, including the shoulder blades that allow the arms to come out over the body much better than a simple ball joint.   I have talked about these before with some of the larger scale, male figures where you can really see the shoulder blades move in and out.

One of the really impressive joints is in the torso.  She has a joint in the chest that moves side to side as well as swivels.   She has a second joint in the waist that allows the same movement.   This is the way Catwoman should be able to move.

With three sets of hands, two heads, and more articulation than you can throw a stick at, you will be hard pressed to not be able to find a pose you like.  She has the double joints in her knees that the other Kai figures have.  It seems as though, with each figure that comes out, they are better able to mask the joints.  It is pretty easy with Catwoman, since her outfit is all black.

One other joint that is really hard to show is in her foot.  The front 1/3 of her foot swivels around, really helping to make her stand on those small feet.

Somebody is not having a good day.  Come on Batman.  Smile.

Play Arts: Kai, Batman: Arkham Asylum – Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn.  Made for the small screen in Batman: The Animated Series, but a strong audience following allowed her to finally make her debut in the comic pages under the art direction of one of my all time favorite artists, Terry Dodson.   Then came Arkham Asylum.  Take Harley, and turn her on her ear.   This is not the bi-colored spandex wearing follower of The Joker that we have known in the past.   This time around, we are treated to a little more of her wild side with a bit of dominatrix leather, and her blond locks exposed to the world.   Somehow I have a feeling that Mr. J would be okay with the change in 0utfits.

Harley comes with a second gripping hand, a cane, and the creepy little Scarface.  Might as well start with Scarface.   When my wife came home, she saw Harley and Cammy on the counter, and then she looked at Scarface and said, “Why did you buy this creepy little guy?”   I had to explain that he was an accessory of Harley.

No pants, and a green jacket with a “J” on it, and paint that looks vaguely familiar all over his head.  I think maybe Harley thinks this is a Joker doll?   Maybe you players of Arkham Asylum can help me out on this one.    He has hip articulation so his legs swing back and forth.  One of the legs is loose, and pops off the ball joint.  I think the arms are supposed to swing as well, but they seem to be stuck, and I don’t want to break him.   He also has a ball joint at his neck so his head can move all over the place.

On inspection of his back, I found a funny lump.  No, he does not have spinal cancer, it is Harley’s hand in the back of the dummy.  It is really well molded, and can be attached in place of her right hand.

When attached, it looks SO good.  With the great joints Play Arts uses, he stays right up where you put him.  The weight is not too much to either pull Harley over, or make her arm droop.  Both are really nice to have.

Ooh, that dirty little Scarface.

She is actually shorter than Joker, but Joker has so much trouble standing on his own that his legs have to be bent funny, as well as his torso.  Thankfully no problems like that with Harley.

The Arkham crew so far.  There is also an Armored Batman, but at this price point, I am definitely not out to collect all of the figures, and one Batman is enough I think.

Play Arts, Kai: Harley Quinn (Upcoming), Armored Batman too.

Here she comes. If you have The Joker, you have to have Harley Quinn hanging off of him somewhere.  The amazing Play Arts Kai figures will get to be two bigger coming up in July.   We will get a Harley as well as an Armored Batman.   This is one crazy Harley, making a whole new generation of game players scared of clowns.  I am looking forward to this figure, since the details on the other figures have been nothing short of phenomenal.   And this figure has no lack of details to show off.   I will be watching to see how they handle things like joints on this figure, since Joker had a few that were quite dominant on his slim frame.   I assume Harley will be even thinner than The Joker.   July will tell I guess.

When these things run about $60 a piece, unless you pre-order them for about $10 less, it is hard to justify buying two of the same figure.  This Batman looks pretty darn good though.  I will have to wait and see if I say ‘no’ when I get to the store and see him in person.   I am thinking, probably not, but if there is something that blows my mind, I know I will have to have him to add to that Arkham Asylum collection.  It would be great to see more figures in this line.  They have no shortage of characters that would look great in this style.
