Kotobukiya ArtFx Plus - HARLEY QUINN!

ArtFx Plus 1:10 Pre-Painted Statue - DC Comics Harley Quinn - Kotobukiya 2017

I've really slowed down on Harley Quinn collecting. The sheer abundance of new Harley products is just too much to stay current with. However, one product I have always wanted was a Kotobukiya ArtFx Harley Quinn. Ever since Catwoman and Batgirl were released back in 2013-2014, I knew she would be next (but I didn't expect it to take three years and for the ArtFx style to have changed). The style changes in this line aren't that drastic; the faces are more detailed/realistic and the size is fractionally larger. But that's okay because there is already a new Catwoman 2.0 on the horizon (as well as a Poison Ivy) and I can only assume a new Batgirl will soon follow. The only bad thing about this figure is that she does not have the standard magnetic feet and metallic base. Instead, she has metal rods protruding from the soles of her feet that anchor into a clear resin base. This is a bummer for me because I prefer to display these pieces without bases. Curious to see how the other will be. Let's check out Harley!






SIDE NOTE: I'm restarting the social media arm of this blog (after years of being lazy). I made a new Instagram account (shesfantasticmadeofplastic) where I'll be posting pics of purchases, exciting press photos, toy events, and store finds. And I'll try to post links to new blog reviews on my Facebook. Click the links on the Right. Thanks!
























Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!


Here she is with the 2014 Batgirl and the 2013 Catwoman. Harley seems slightly larger in scale in this photo, and she is, but note that Harley is on a stand and the others aren't. Harley seems to be part of a new wave (with an upcoming Poison Ivy and Catwoman v2 on the horizon).






Cheers!
