Action Figure Review: Harley Quinn (No Man's Land) from DC Comics Icons by DC Collectibles
Height: 5 3/4 inches
Articulation: Swivel/hinge ankles, double-hinged knees, ball-jointed hips, mid-torso hinge, upper torso balljoint, swivel/hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double-hinged elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, and a ball-jointed head.
Accessories: Mallet, pistol, and 5 interchangeable hands: A pair of fists, a pair of grips, and a left-handed pistol grip.
Non-Scalper Price: $22-$25 dollars
* DC Icons has incredible articulation. The ball jointed head, double hinged elbows, and ball-jointed upper torso, along with all of the other joints you would typically expect, allow for some excellent posing opportunities. The articulation feels very sturdy, too. Again, as I said in my review of the Icons Batman, this figure actually feels sturdier and more suited for play than most of what Mattel and Hasbro are putting out. Exceptional!
* Harley's popgun pistol is a pretty classic weapon for the character, particularly during her early years. The sculpt is nice (that cork at the end really looks like a cork!) and it fits really snugly in her left hand.
*Could a classic Harley Quinn figure ever not include her trusty mallet? This is a pretty simple mallet (it doesn't have any crazy writing on it or anything) but it looks impressive. The wooden head has a nice texture to it and some great paint effects while the handle has a red tape wrap around the handle which not only looks nicer but helps give the figure a firmer grip.
* Of course, one of the problems you have when you have a long, thin handled accessory is that it can have the tendency to warp if it's too soft or it can be too brittle if it's too rigid. I haven't had any problems with this handle but I will say, simply as a warning, that I could see this handle snapping if you're not careful. Be careful with Harley's toy! You wouldn't want her to get angry at you.
* Harley's hips are the only part of the figure I have any problem with: They're really tight and don't lend themselves to posing well. They look fine but they seem like they're just not as well thought out as everything else on the figure. It's tough to get a lot of forward and backwards movement out of them (getting wider stances isn't much of a problem, though).
Harley Quinn, the 6 inch Suicide Squad Harley Quinn, the Imaginext The Joker & Harley Quinn, the POP! Roller Derby Harley, the Suicide Squad Harley Quinn, Batman: The Animated Series Harley Quinn, and the roller derby Harley Quinn from DC Collectibles,the DC Super Hero Girls Harley, and the S.H. Figuarts Harley Quinn (Injustice Version). Oh, and the Arkham Asylum Lego set. If you're more interested in Dr. Harleen Quinzel, I've reviewed the Arkham Origins Harleen Quinzel.
I've also reviewed the Last Rites Batman from DC Comics Icons, too!
