The Joker’s main squeeze gets a new look in the Batman Arkham Knight video game and thanks to DC Collectibles, her new look is realized in action figure from. Standing under 7 inches tall, she features beautiful sculpt complimented with wicked paint apps. Her articulation system is the best to date for an Arkham Harley Quinn for great posing options. Included are extra hands, handgun, baseball bat, detonator control and a Jack-in-a-box. Priced at a bout $25 (DCcomics.com).

Merry Christmas – 2014 Haul

26 12 2014

First off, hope everyone had a great Christmas day. Family, friends, food, gifts, and non-stop NBA basketball games on TV made this day a long one to get through. But I survived and hopefully you did too.

This year’s gift haul was certainly epic.

1st up, Bandai’s Real Grade Justice Gundam model kit. I technically got this yesterday morning at my office Christmas party and once I got home, I went right to work on it. As you can see I repainted it blue, panel lined it, and applied a few decals. Fun build. 12+ hrs of work.

Next, another Real Grade kit, the Destiny Gundam. I’m fortunate I have the whole last week of 2014 off to take my time on building this one.

Got a very cool Batman Arkham Asylum action figure set by DC collectibles. The Batman figure I got in single form when it was first released but the one in this set has a much darker paint scheme which I really think looks better. The villains in this set look really wicked.

The female Assassin Creed Aveline De Grandpre figure by McFarlane Toys. Never had a chance to play her in the games, wonder if she’s any good. Also, season 1 DVD set of the Musketeers.

Got Generations Deluxe Chormia and Arcee as well as the new Animated R.I.D. Warrior Class Strongarm. 2014 was the year of the fembots.

and lastly, gift to myself thanks to a sweet Holiday bonus, got the full set of Revoltech TMNT action figures. May do a video review on these after I try test them out bit more to see what the pros and cons are.

That’s all for now… need a beer 🙂

 





Adventures in Toy Shopping: DC Collectibles Batman Hush 3-Pack

19 09 2013

DC Collectibles re-releases 3 of its Batman Hush figures in this cool 3-Pack featuring Stealth Jumper Batman, Joker, and Harley Quinn. Priced at about $50.

The packaging is pretty plain, done in the same style as most DC Collectible action figures these days.

All the figures use the original molds when they released originally under the DC Direct brand name but with better quality paint apps. Here’s Stealth Jumper Batman.

Next we got the Cown Prince of Crime the Joker. I like this one a lot. Captures the Joker’s insane persona so well.

Harley Quinn is pretty awesome in her own right. Liking the metallic red a lot.

Based off the art of Jim Lee, his style is captured very well but I think Batman is the least favorite of mine in this set. Articulation isn’t great but if you’re familiar with DC Direct then you already know this. These are basically mini statues in my opinion.

One big thing to keep in mind, Quality Control has never been great with DC Collectibles. When I went to bend Harley’s left elbow for the 1st time, it broke right off. The Joker has really tight arm joints that I’m fearful the same thing will happen if I bend parts with him. With that said, buy from a place with a solid return policy.
