Harley Quinn’s Action Figure Line Gives You More Amanda Connor Toys Than You Could Ever Dream
Have you had your fill of Harley Quinn? Too bad if you have! This train has left the station at warp speed and will continue to run until it reaches the far end of the cosmos, and even alien races are converted to the Church of Quinn. Since spinning off on her own in the rebooted DC Universe, Harley's been an unstoppable juggernaut. Though she's been getting action figures fairly regularly, Harley's never been the star of her own toy line. That ends this October.
DC Collectibles announced the new Harley Quinn toy line ahead of Toy Fair (via Vulture), and gave a glimpse into the first wave of figures you can expect this fall. The line features designs from current Harley Quinn writer and cover artist Amanda Connor, with several of the figures paying tribute to looks Ms. Quinn has donned in her solo series. It's almost like DC is banking on Harley Quinn blowing up even more after her appearance in Suicide Squad this August. I'm not even sure it's possible for the villain-turned-hero-turned-not-quite-so-good-but-also-not-a-bad-person to get more popular, but hey, it's Harley's world, we just live in it.
Joining the classic Harley Quinn design will be Super Hero Harley, who you might recognize from her adventures as Power Girl's "partner." I do wonder if the butt panel will be exposed as it was in the comics. Holiday Harley from the Harley Quinn Holiday Special will also get a figure, which should be timed nicely for the upcoming holiday season, even though the book was from last year. There's even a Retro Rocket Harley from the cover of Harley Quinn #12.
All four figures show decidedly different takes on the character, though you do start to get a '90s action figure vibe from all the unique costumes. It sort of fits with the goofball vibe Harley has in her new book, and truthfully, you can never have too many Amanda Connor-inspired collectibles in your home. It's not clear yet if any accessories will be packed in with the figures, but one can only hope giant mallets and rocket packs will be included.
We'll have more on these figures and the rest of DC Collectibles' plans from Toy Fair this weekend.
