Minifigure Review: Harley Quinn (Series 1.5) from DC Comics Lil Bombshells by Cryptozoic

 Did yesterday's review of Batwoman leave you wondering the identity of the second figure I pulled from series 1.5 of Cryptozoic's DC Comics Lil Bombshells toyline? It was Harley Quinn! How crazy that I pulled my two favorite characters from the series, huh? I was pretty pumped about that. Like with Batgirl, this Harley is the same sculpt as the series 1 version with a different paintjob. While the first Harley Quinn's paintjob captures the look of the Bombshells statue, this one has a paintjob that is reminiscent of Harley's modern comic outfits. Let's take a short look at this minifigure after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 2 7/8ths inches

Articulation: None

Accessories: Metal storage tin

Non-Scalper Price: $10 dollars

Here's a look at both figures (series 1.5 on the left and series 1 on the right). As you can see, the series 1.5 version has lighter hair and an alternating red and blue paint scheme. I like the more vivid colors and the red and blue dyed tips and makeup. I think I still like the series 1 version better, but this one definitely adds something fun and unique that is legitimately based on a recognizable character variant. 
 * I don't usually talk much about price when it comes to toys but I still feel the need to mention that for around $10, these seem a couple of dollars too high, especially for a blind-bagged series. Well, blind canned. Yeah, these actually come in little tins with removable lids. It's a cool gimmick although I imagine it's what is adding the extra few bucks to the line. The tin is quite nice, though, and looks good on display with the figure. There's even a checklist on the back. The series 1.5 can is the same as the series 1 can except for a different sticker on top.
I really think this Harley is just as good as the series 1 version. She's noticeably different and not just a palette swap from series 1; the red and blue alternating scheme really does resemble the design of her outfit from the New 52 that has influenced so many Harley looks since. While the price on these definitely seems a bit high, they really are some of the nicest minifigures out there. Harley is a Great miniature Bombshell figure and well worth tracking down. I'll be reviewing all of series 2 soon and guess what? We get yet another Harley variant there!

  1. THAT'S what these are! Very cool with the Harley variant. I have mixed feelings on blind box toys...

    1. I hear you on the blind boxed toys. I'm OK with blind boxed items that can either be easily figured out (Legos, Playmobils, etc.) or that are really inexpensive (Grossery Gang) but I'm not as down with blind boxed items that are fairly expensive. Fortunately, I've picked these up either at stores where folks had already opened the plastic seals or in full cases (that's what I did for series 2).

  2. Harley is my fave in that line also. Just not too crazy about the "Blind Box" aspect of the set.

    1. Yeah, it's kind of weird for toys that cost around $10 each.
