I love when I see a figure in person and my perception of it completely changes. When I first saw solicitation images of this figure around Toy Fair earlier this year I wasn't really impressed. Sure, she was cute, and sure, it's a good representation of Dustin Nguyen's art, but I just knew she was going to be a "pass" for me. Especially considering the insane amount of awesome DCC products solicited at the same time. I kind of forgot about her until I saw her in person at my local comic shop last week and was totally won over. There's something incredibly charming about this figure that doesn't come across well in 2-D photos. Plus I didn't realize that she would be half the price of a typical DCC figure. Now I have my typical wishes for a Catwoman and Poison Ivy figure keep her company. Not to mention Huntress, Batgirl and Batwoman who get a lot of play in Dustin's Li'L Gotham comic. I can imagine my entire Bat-shelf getting an adorable makeover. Let's check out Harley below!
The sculpt by Jong Wan Lee is great. I would think Dustin Nguyen's "watercolory/gestural" art would be extremely difficult to translate into 3-D, but he did a fantastic job.
Harley has decent articulation considering her diminutive size. She has a neck swivel, hinge and swivel shoulders, pivot wrists, and simple leg cuts. She's really lightweight and comes with a figure stand so you can get her in a lot of fun poses.
Harley comes with some equally adorable accessories. Aside from her figure stand, Harley comes with a mallet, a sleeping hyena puppy, and a Joker dolly.
Here are some images of Dustin's Harley.
Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here she is with the JLU Harley from Mattel and the Eaglemoss lead figurine.
