Harley Quinn – Mischief and mayhem personified! DC COMICS HARLEY QUINN BISHOUJO STATUE
April 24, 2012

 The Joker’s ever faithful companion and partner in crime, Harley Quinn is the newest femme fatale to appear in Kotobukiya’s DC Comics Bishoujo statue collection.

 

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  Coming up next in the DC Comics Bishoujo Collection (combining DC’s super heroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) is the fan favorite wacky psychologist turned harlequin super villain, HARLEY QUINN!  First appearing in Batman: the Animated Series and then the pages of DC Comics, Harleen Quinzel was originally a brilliant doctor working with patients at Arkham Asylum before she was seduced by the “clown prince of crime” and became the Joker’s girlfriend and assistant.  Her villainous ways have brought her into conflict with Batman many times over the years, and she’s found a good friend in the similarly deranged Poison Ivy.  Because of her mental instability and affinity for hilarity, Quinn frequently employs comically oversized weapons like her favorite giant hammer.  Based on an original illustration by Japan’s renowned Shunya Yamashita, Harley appears here for the first time in the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style!

Harley Quinn shows off her silly and violent natures as she poses seductively just for you.  Perched on her enormous hammer, the sultry psychotic looks adorable in her trademark black, red, and white harlequin costume that hugs all of her curves.  Harley’s sculpt is fantastic with careful attention paid to her sexy body, the cloth-like movement of her collar and hood, and the fringes on her wrists.  With Quinn’s stunning Bishoujo-style face and wonderfully sculpted and painted costume, you won’t need to be as crazy as the Joker to want her around.

Constructed of high-quality PVC plastic and standing 10 inches tall (in the ultimate 1/7 scale) on her exclusive hammer base, Harley Quinn was sculpted by Masahiro “Gill Gill” Takahashi.  Display Harley on her own or together with other DC Bishoujo statues like Poison Ivy and Batgirl!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
