I’ve posted a lot of Harley Quinn statues and busts here, but this was my very first one. She’s part of the earliest series of Cover Girls of DC statues, based on the art of Adam Hughes, and while the busts have put Harley in her classic costume over and over, this is the only statue in this particular line that has her in the traditional red and black outfit.

After posting the early Catwoman and Poison Ivy busts from the Women of the DC Universe series over the past couple of days, I’m rounding out the Gotham trio with Harley Quinn today. Yes, I have a million Harley Quinns. This probably was my first one, though, as she was the earliest Harley released in DC Direct’s collectibles line, when all the pieces were designed by or based on Adam Hughes’ art.

You can probably tell by now that I have a ton of Harley Quinn collectibles. Well, guess what. Here’s another! This one is from the third series of Women of the DC Universe busts made by DC Direct, and she was limited to 5000 pieces. Celeste has been showing me a bunch of toy photography tutorials and awesome toy photos online lately, and I decided to experiment a little with the backgrounds on this set.

Yep, it’s another Harley Quinn today! I’ve been posting collectibles showing Harley in her newer-version costumes, so I decided to go back to her classic look for today’s collectible. This is the Harley Quinn Bishoujo statue, released by Kotobukiya last year. It comes with two interchangeable faces for Harley that you can swap out using magnets attached to the back of each face. The face swapping is a little strange, as both faces included have exactly the same sculpture and expression. The only difference between the two is that one has Harley’s face painted white, and the other has her face unpainted, just in a natural skin tone. The Caucasian skin tones on these Bishoujo statues tend to be very light, so even the “unpainted” face is pretty close to white, making the difference between the two faces almost unnoticeable. I took photos of both faces in the same shot pose for comparison, but I prefer the white painted face, so that’s the one I used for all the other photos.

Also of note is that I picked up a bunch of new backgrounds on the cheap at the hobby store today, because some of the ones I’ve been using for the last several years have started to show their age. I was able to replace the old ones with new ones in the same color, but I also managed to find a few colors I’ve never used before (like the pink in these pics).

Today’s statue is a pretty controversial one for a few reasons. First and foremost is that it’s the first collectible released featuring Harley Quinn in her post-New 52 costume. Many Quinn fans absolutely loathe her new look in the current DC comics, so this statue hits a sore spot for them. Adding insult to injury is the base of the statue, which blatantly has Harley taking a sledgehammer to her old, classic costume before stomping on it. I’m not especially attached to any one look for Harley Quinn, but I like her overall as a character, so I’ve been okay with the makeovers she’s gotten in the comics and in the video games. I still have a few additional Harley Quinn collectibles that I haven’t posted here yet, so they’ll probably show up at some point during this year.

Arkham City is the second game in Rocksteady’s fantastic Batman video game series, and it presents some unique and twisted versions of classic Batman heroes and villains. One of the most iconic redesigns is Harley Quinn, the Joker’s insane cohort. DC has been releasing the Arkham City versions of the characters as full-scale statues, comparable in size to their Cover Girls of the DC Universe line, and Harley is the most recent to hit stores. These pieces are uniquely noirish in their presentation and painting, with most of them being almost monochromatic, except for one or two highlight colors. The end result is a statue that looks sort of Sin City-ish but that still fits into displays alongside DC’s previous full-color releases.
