ABOUT THIS 1:10 SCALE STATUE Scarlet Witch in a new statue from Iron Studios!
She can control Chaos Magic, which allows her to manipulate probability and even distort and change reality itself. On a base where she floats with her power, on an old column chime clock, with the remains of rubble from a heroes' mansion, but also sending a subliminal message as if she were bending time and space, Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch, manipulates bundles of supernatural red energy with her hands, and her imposing presence intimidates any opponent. As if she came straight out of the pages of the Marvel comics, joining forces with her twin brother sprinter Quicksilver previously revealed, Iron Studios brings her statue "Scarlet Witch - X-Men - BDS Art Scale 1:10 - Iron Studios", with Marvel's most powerful mystical heroine.
Created by the legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1964, Wanda was born on Wundagore Mountain, in the fictional Transia - Eastern Europe, and, together with her brother, was once considered Magneto's mutant daughter, but recently it was revealed that both were enhanced by geneticist called High Evolutionary. Initially, she joined the Brotherhood of Mutants of her supposed "father" and later, along with her brother, was recruited by the Avengers under the command of Captain America.
Wanda was adapted in the MCU and played by actress Elizabeth Olsen but gained greater prominence and worldwide popularity in the series WandaVision, streamed by Disney+. As in the films and series, in the comics, Wanda also became involved in a romance with the synthezoid Vision, whom he married. Unlike the series, in the comics, she was trained by the witch Agatha Harkness, her mentor, to become one of the most powerful manipulators of magic on Earth.
As a figure that is part of the X-Men vs. Sentinels Diorama, which is controlled by Magneto, Scarlet Witch can defend, alongside her brother, the mutant heroes, students of Prof. X, but also to join her mystical forces with the Master of Magnetism and his Brotherhood. It can also, individually, complement the team of the most emblematic statues of the Avengers. It all depends on each fan and collector, as multiple probabilities are Wanda Maximoff's specialty.

Beginning five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and the fall of the Galactic Empire, The Mandalorian follows Din Djarin, a lone Mandalorian bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy. He is hired by remnant Imperial forces to retrieve the child Grogu, but instead goes on the run to protect the infant. While looking to reunite Grogu with his kind, they are pursued by Moff Gideon, who wants to use Grogu's connection to the Force. The ' bloody history made their armor an iconic symbol of fear. Mandalorian armor was made from , which was one of the strongest metals in the galaxy. Beskar could protect the wearer from blasters and even lightsabers. The and his cloned son, wore customized Mandalorian armor, which was made with a alloy.
If I told you I watched The Mandalorian I would be lying. My son watches it. In fact he’s a big fan, and this statue now resides in his game room. I remember Boba Fett from the original films and always thought the outfit was cool, so I can say that this version is fantastic in terms of style. It’s a very sleek piece that I was happy to review. Just forgive me if I get a few of the terms wrong
The head is the helmet in full effect. This outfit, which is the Beskar style is dark and light silver with just a touch of black here and there. You can see the pointed down helmet which looks very menacing. You can also see how sleek it is, shining under the lights. A dark silver and the top and sides with lighter silver around where the cheeks would be it’s a very polarizing look. The black eye visors going down the center to the bottom really makes this look stunning. You can see the torso armor is done the same way. The chest, and shoulder plate are done in an almost metallic silver with a darker silver towards the bottom. The shirt itself underneath the armor plate is also a shade of faint silver. You can see the weapons belt and shoulder chest strap in full effect with 4 shells in the holster. Two are missing and no doubt are the two loaded in the Mandalorian’s gun. The strap as well as the belt is a deep brown with plenty of etching and shading to give it a real leather look. You can see the detail that went into the belt with all the buttons, and even a scuffed up worn buckle, that I must point out is a silver color as well. The piece really does flow nicely.
The bottom shows off more of the two colored armor. A deep silver done for the pants but a lighter, yet still dark like the top half armor wise. You can see the plate on the right leg in the his area as well as on the left leg. The left part is a bit different as it has some brown leather added to is as it also serves as a hip holster for a pistol. I like how its battle damaged. You can see the scuffing on the plate itself, as well as in the leather attachment. The sculpting on the hip holster is phenomenal. Every seam and stich is etched in to make it look as real as possible. The pants are done remarkably well also. Every line and wrinkle is molded throughout. I love the attention to detail showing the bunching around the boots showing how they would look tucked inside in real life. The boots are a brown color as well matching the belt and holsters. For a piece done of only a few colors this really comes across as bright and stunning.
The side shot gives you a glimpse of the blaster the Mandalorian is using. You can see the armor done on the forearm, which is the same sleek silver as the rest. All the designs and linings are sculpted into it as well. You can see the undershirt is done in a bunched up look by the elbow where the arm is bent, which really shows off the attention to detail used in this piece. The hand is in a fingerless glove with armor around it. Each finger is individually sculpted with a tight squeeze on the trigger emphasized. The blaster is smooth and black and for its size it looks very imposing. Aimed out and tipped down just a tad with the finger on the trigger really give this a bad ass look to say the least.
I can’t stress enough from the back how good this cape looks. Hanging down yet still almost blowing in the wind as The Mandalorian is ready for battle i. Once again notice all the small etchings and lines throughout all the bends and folds. You can even see the back blow on the cape from where it is blowing out and behind the outfit itself. . The cape is definitely a huge part of this overall outfit, and this is just spot on. Look at the shoulders where the cape is lifting up with the body. That’s an attention to detail you don’t see very often. It has a majestic look as opposed to the standard superhero cape designs. From flowing up and around the shoulders, to wrapping around the arms, to hanging to the side this is a fantastic cape that really adds to the design. I must also point out the detail that went into the right arm. Look at all the wrinkles, bends and folds just like a real outfit would have with a bent back arm. This looks like a million dollars and from what I can tell is spot on from the show.
The base is basic rock style, in fact judging by the looks or it is a combination of rock and rubble from battle. A reddish brown with black scratches filled with cracks, and markings to look like real rock, or at the very least some type on concrete. All designed to be fully cracked and damaged throughout. It’s a very detailed piece. It’s also just the right size and color as to not take anything away from The Mandalorian himself. You also get a great look at his boots in this shot. The boots are leather but padded to give it an armored like look for extra protection. Like the other armored parts it matches everything perfectly. This is a very cool choice for a base as it brings a touch of color to the piece, without taking anything away from the statue itself.
Like I said I don’t watch the show, I’ve seen a bit here and there but I can confirm this is spot on in terms of likeness. As I said my son is a big fan and he displayed this the second it came. If you’re a fan then this is a must have piece. Now keep in mind this is a limited edition resin piece. Only 3000 are being made so act fast as they will be gone quick.

Black Adam was an ancient Egyptian slave who received the powers of the Wizard Shazam. However he was imprisoned for millennia by the Wizard after he misused his powers. He was eventually freed in the modern day where he went on to battle the Wizard's new champion Billy Batson many times.
With a movie starring The Rock on the way, and a resurgence so to speak in the comic series it’s only fitting that Diamond Select Toys has created an amazing Black Adam statue standing on a piece of rock with lighting flowing from the cloud base this is one impressive piece that captures the look and feel of the comic bad guy completely.
The face. This is awesome. I love the classic comic book style hair. It’s painted and etched but still has a slick back look about it. The cheeks are especially well done. You can see how they are slightly sucked in and shaded just a bit darker. You combine that with the frowned lips and slightly raised eyebrows and you have a truly menacing look. They eyes are polarizing to say the least. Black with just a hint of white if you really look close enough this gives it the full comic book look. Black Adam is bigger and more menacing than Shazam and the muscle outline of his traps alone show that.
The body looks great. A combination of black and yellow makes the comic book drawing come to life. Take notice of the rib cage. It’s shaded a bit lighter to show the muscles underneath the costume. It looks great. The entire torso looks great. Making the lightning bolt bright yellow with some black shading inside add a sense of depth to the piece. The costume is done in that elephant skin style which looks amazing under the light. The big yellow sash tied to the side looks great. I like how the sash, lightning bolt, arm wraps and boots are all of the same matching color. It looks great with the elephant skin style black.
Moving to the side you have to be impressed with the arms. You can see all of the muscles getting ready to pop through the costume. Painted and shaded just right to give it an amazingly real look but still holding the comic book style. The fist lurching down adds yet another piece of the tough guy puzzle. The golden yellow forearm wrap really helps add to the overall look and feel I also like how both legs are bent, yet by having one placed behind it adds to the feeling that Black Adam is ready for a fight.
The base is very cool. It’s a big cloud filled with lightning. Grey with white and black shading designed to have that “Puffy” cloud look. Its very well sculpted. Everything is different to say the least. The various colors of the shading really bring it to life. The placement is fantastic as well as you really get the look and feel that Black Adam is floating on a cloud. Throw in the rods of yellow lighting all around and this is a mean looking piece. I love how the lighting is a more faint yellow as opposed to the deep yellow in the costume. Keeping the two separate was a fantastic idea.
This is a great piece that you will want to add to your collection especially with the new movie coming out. This is the comic look that I always prefer, and I have him front and center on my desk. It’s a must own for all superhero and DC collectors. Pick one up today.

Dr. Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk is an American theoretical physicist, famed for his work into the studies of nuclear physics and gamma radiation. He was recruited by General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross and the US Army to develop the first Gamma Bomb. During its first live test he was bombarded with a massive dose of gamma rays while saving Rick Jones, a kid who was out on the test site. He was mutated into a green behemoth, the living personification of rage, fueled by pure physical strength and would come to be known as nearly mindless "Incredible Hulk". Fearful of the damage that Hulk could inflict, as well as fleeing from the military, he went on the run. He later found a home among the Avengers, the Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Who doesn’t love the Hulk? I mean come on he’s a big giant green rage monster. He gets mad, he grows big and turns green and smashed anyone who come sin his way. I will admit I was never a huge reader of the comics, I mean I would always enjoy when he would pop up in other heroes stories but I never collected him on a regular basis. I do however love him in the Avengers films. In fact he was probably my favorite character in the first Avenger movie. Now for the huge amount of Marvel statues I have I never had a Hulk. Now thanks to Diamond Select Toys that has all changed. They have just released a massive and I do mean massive resin statue that depicts the Hulk from the classic comic book series.
Let’s start out with the face. Squinty eyes, etched in bowl haircut the growling mouth, and the torso I have seen on a statue His neck and chest muscles are so huge his head is small. The head looks amazing. The sloping forehead and bunched up eyes really add an emphasis of power as the Hulk is getting ready to smash someone of something. The eyes look great. There a bit hard to see with that sloping forehead but there are a crisp white color and a very peaceful blue, complete with black pupil. You can see all the work that went into the sculpting of this peace in just the head alone. A huge amount of detail in not only the sloping of the forehead but the indents on the cheeks and the smashing of the nose to really hit home the amount of force the blow he is about strike is going to hurt. His teeth a individually sculpted and pure white, you even see a few areas of red where his gums are. The lips are of course green as well but shaded a bit darker to highlight them. As I mentioned this is a hulking piece to say the least. The body looks fantastic. Very detailed in terms of muscle mass. You can even see the “stretching: of the skin around the center of the chest as his arm positioning has the chest muscles extra tightened. The shading of dark and pale blacks really add to the composition of the muscles.
Moving down you can see the muscles in full effect. As I mention they are sculpted to look like the real thing but on a larger scale. The abs are sticking out and are rippling to say the least., yet you can also see these muscles under the outfit, and by outfit I mean the trademark ripped purple shorts. Another nice touch is the molding of the costume in general. Notice how it gets wrinkled under the ab muscles. Also take notice of the wrinkles sculpted in under the belt line where it is ripped and frayed . You can see by looking at the legs how I mentioned this is designed to look almost like a spandex material. You can see all the stitch markings etched in throughout it. It really does match the comic book version perfectly. Its done in the elephant skin style that I love so much as it looks so amazing under the lights. Unfortunately this piece was way to big for my picture box so your not getting the full effect. As you can still see though all the muscles are not only sculpted on the exposed parts, but under the shorts as well. Everything is overly anatomically correct so to speak as the Hulk is one of Marvels biggest characters. I really also like the addition of the rip on the left leg exposing the green muscle on the leg. This is a big piece for sure, and definitely wide.
This side shot give you a great look at the ribs and arms and all the work that went into this piece. Every rib muscles is popping out and if you look close you can even see how the waist is done smaller that the rest of the body to give a bodybuilders symmetry. It’s incredibly well done. The arms are massive. Muscles overly exaggerated and bulging out every way imaginable. You can even see the veins running through the arms and the stomach area as well for that matter. The placement of the hands behind the head forming a fist give the impression that an ax handle is coming someone or somethings way soon. You can even notice the sculpting on the left around the exposed calve muscles. Overly done to show off the hulks size but perfectly correct tin terms of muscle placement. Even the calves has veins running through them. This entire piece is just on an entirely different level when it comes to mass. Its one of the wider pieces I have seen, in fact I put this right under Diamond Selects new Thanos in terms of size and scope, and as this is the Hulk that’s exactly how it should be.
The back shot shows off more of the muscles sculpted through this gigantic piece. I love the look of the skin flexing out with the muscles popping at the same time. It really adds to the look of anger the Hulk has. Every deltoid, and flexor is perfectly done just on a gamma level of size. The shading is great as well. Green, with hints of dark green and faint black to bring it all together. You can see the shorts are designed perfectly from the back as well. The back pockets are sculpted in and you can see the seams and stitching just like in real shorts. You also get a great look at the Hulks feet. Notice how big they are. Every toe is individually sculpted out and you can see there even shaded in a few variation of a yellowish green and brown to give him that dirty barefoot look, which is a fantastic touch. I like how they went all out making the feet as big as the rest. It showcases the amount of time and effort that Diamond Select puts into these statues.
The base is a simple rock formation, but before I get to that lets check out the leg. As you saw in the side shot this is a well sculpted leg to say the least. Every muscle is fully flexed as the Hulk is getting ready to spring into action. Not only can you see all the muscles but you can see the high amount of veins flowing throughout the are as well. Some look as though they are ready to pop. The leg is leaned against a rock formation that in very well done. The base itself is basic rock style, in fact judging by the looks or it is a combination of rock and rubble from battle. A deep and at the same time faded grey. It’s filled with cracks, scratches and markings to look like real rock, or at the very least some type on concrete. From there it is raised into almost rubble. You can see that same grey rock formation style that’s raised into larger chunks that are more of a very light almost tan and faded grey and black. All designed to be fully cracked and damaged throughout. It’s a very detailed piece. It’s also just the right size and color as to not take anything away from Hulk himself.
This is one big slick piece. If you’re a Hulk fan, or Marvel fan in general it’s a must have for your collection. It’s the most comic book accurate piece I have seen of the Hulk to date. Now keep in mind these are limited. Only 3000 of these are being made. You can still get your pre orders in so I recommend doing it fast.

Thanos was born on Saturn’s moon Titan as the son of A'Lars, and Sui-San and his brother is Eros also known as Starfox. Thanos carries the Deviants gene, and as such, shares the physical appearance of the Eternals' cousin race. At birth, his mother was shocked by his appearance and attempted to kill him, due to believing that her son would annihilate all life in the universe, but was stopped by A'Lars, Thanos' father. During his school years, Thanos was a pacifist and would only play with his brother and pets. By adolescence, Thanos had become fascinated with nihlism and death, worshipping and eventually falling in love with the physical embodiment of death, Mistress Death As an adult, Thanos augmented his physical strength and powers through his superior scientific knowledge. He also attempted to create a new life for himself by siring many children as well as becoming a pirate. He finds no fulfillment in either until he is visited again by Mistress Death, for whom he murders his offspring and his pirate captain.
Thanos is the big bad in the Marvel universe, there is no denying that. He has beaten every hero to a pulp at one time or another, even the Hulk. Now Thanos towers over everyone he faces so it should come as no surprise that this latest Marvel Milestones Thanos piece from Diamond Select Toys is massive. And I mean massive. This is one of the biggest pieces they have done to date. It weighs over 40lbs stands close to 18 inches tall and has a base a little over 16 inches wide. This is a big heavy piece to say the least. So when you open it be sure you have a nice amount of room.
As I said up front this thing is massive. I had to display it on my desk as it was too wide and heavy to place on one of my figure, or book shelves. Look at this You have to build it. Now don’t worry it literally takes about 1minute. You attach the arms, then insert it in the base. Simple and quick. It just has to come this way do to size, and of course protection of the piece. You can see all the pieces are wrapped in plastic bags and resting in Styrofoam the size of a small briefcase. Now another thing I want to point out is due to the gigantic size I have this on one of my arcade tables as it was not fitting in a picture box. I can also say there was not a scratch on this. This is a perfectly wrapped and packed piece so don’t worry about it taking a few bumps in the mail.
Let’s look right at his giant head. It’s crafted perfectly. You can see all the lines and indents sculpted into it. The lines are etched and shaded in a combination of black and grey as such to give it a shadow look thus creating a touch of realism. The mouth is fantastic. You can see all of the individually sculpted teeth as well as Thanos’s tongue. And let me just say this, this things is menacing looking to say the least The nose and cheek bones are formed up and the eyes are slightly slanted down to give him a menacing look. His eyes are well painted in a bright white and almost feel like he’s looking at you. The lines throughout the face give it the sense that he is contemplating his next evil move while yelling out in battle. His head is crafted to give his head a dome look. The shading sculpting and painting give him the perfect Avengers Endgame film look. His head is covered by his helmet which he wore in the comics as well as the film all the time. It’s a faded blue with golden armor. I really like how the gold on the top of the dome match the rest of the body. And as he is no doubt beating up the Avengers this piece is battle damaged beyond belief in terms of scuffing and shading.
This front shot shows how movie accurate the body is. The dark blue almost grey uniform with the golden armor look great. It’s painted and shaded to give it that full armored look as well as feel. You can see all the muscles under the costume and as it’s made larger than most of the Marvel statues it truly has a larger than life feel. The positioning is fantastic as well. The chest piece almost looks puffed out really showing off the size of Thanos. The armor sticks up on the shoulders down the chest on the legs and arms, everywhere. It really does look like real armor one would wear into battle. The shading is incredible as well. Everything is smeared and dirty so you know Thanos is in a fight. The color placement is marvelous. Dirty gold and a grey blue but yet it still shines. As I said at 18 inches tall he would not fit in my backdrop box but you can still see every line, and design in not only the gold armor which is raised up, but the normal body armor as well. It is as if he jumped out of your television it is so realistic.
This side shot shows off Thanos’s double edge sword. For my fellow nerds out there its made of Uru Metal in the books which is the strongest metal in the galaxy. Stronger than Captain Americas shield which is vibranium, but the same as say Thors hammer, hence why when Cap had the hammer he was able to start beating Thanos without damaging it. This is a very detailed weapon. Its built into the hand so once you attach the arm its read to go. You can see Thanos’s pale purple fingers which are all individually sculpted wrapped around the handle of the blade. The blade is a very dirty grey almost silver with deep grey metal encompassed over the top of both sides. You can see all the detail that went into this in terms of the line work and scratches on the exposed blade itself. The blade has definitely been used in battle as it has a real worn look about it. It’s a gigantic weapon and having it by Thanos’s side really helps to show off how truly big it is. You also can see the detail on his forearm pads as well. This is a heavy duty piece showing that Thanos really is the top bad guy in the Marvel Universe.
The back shows off the gold shoulder pads really well. Painted in almost a gold with copper colored undertone they are slightly raised to give it a look of armor. You can see from the back how the outfit is done in different colors. Light black, bluish grey. All of these tones make this stand out. By using paints and shades of all different colors it helps to make each and everything stand out. It gives it a layered look to add to the realism. You can also get a good idea of just how massive this piece is. In terms of depth and size. The armor is some of the most detailed work I have ever seen. For as tall and wide as this piece is looking at all the different shading, etching, and work that went into sculpting every small detail in this armor is a scope of which I have not seen before. I dig the placement of the legs as well. Having both feet firmly planted down yet bent back and forward respectfully this has a look as though it is actually moving. The arms out to their respective sides really show the with off as well from this angle.
Now lets look at this amazing base. It may just look like ruble at a glance but its actually the demolished “A” from the Avenger or Stark Tower. Grey, silver, black, and brown all blended perfectly together to create a stone and metal pile of destruction. You can see the “A” behind, and in some aspects under Thanos massive boot. I love how the outline of the “A” is silver yet the rest is almost rock like as its just been destroyed. Pieces of the big letter are scattered all over the base of this piece. Its incredibly well detailed with an absolutely insane amount of detail. Every crack and smashed piece is shaded and sculpted to look real. Throw in the fact that the base is the destroyed Avengers tower letter really adds symbolism to this piece. This is without a doubt the best base I have ever seen.
This is probably the most amazing piece I have ever seen from Diamond Select Toys. Their Marvel Milestones are all things of beauty but this is just 10 steps above anything they have ever done. If you’re a collector this is a must buy. If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe this is a must buy. Simply put this is a must buy. Pictures do not do it justice. It’s a big heavy piece that looks great wheverevr you put it. Now like the other Milestone statues this is limited. Only 1000 of these were made, and trust me when I say they will go fast. Pick one up now!

As Princess of the Amazons, Princess Diana was born to Hippolyta, queen of Themyscira. Upon her birth, she was granted abilities beyond those of mortals, and later bequeathed the Lasso of Truth by the Gods of Olympus. She has been described as "beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Hermes, and stronger than Hercules. She is a warrior of peace hailing from an island of women isolated from the outside world (called "man's world" by the Amazons for obvious reasons) for centuries. After eventually leaving the island she became a superhero know to the world as Wonder Woman using her powers to fight crime alongside the other members of the Justice League.
I’ve always liked Wonder Woman. Not so much the new films, more so the comic book, of course the classic television show, and the most underrated cartoon ever, Justice League. Justice League only ran a few years and most episodes were actually 3-5 part stories so there was lots going on. When it ended Justice League Unlimited came out. It was more of a one and done cartoon that brought in lots of new members. Wonder Woman was always apart of this series and now Diamond Select and Gentle Giant are pulling out the cartoon design with their newest animated bust of the amazon princess herself.
Looking at the head the first thing I noticed was the trademark longer jaw line that all of these characters were drawn with. It's perfectly sculpted and painted to look like a cartoon come to life.. I love the bold bright colors they used. Bright red lipstick that matches the bright red star on her tiara and those bold steel blue eyes really stand out. I love the eye color the most I think. Thick deep black outline, bold and strong blue for the eye and a pitch black dot in the center. Cartoon style of course but with the fact that the head is angled to the side a bit it looks like Wonder Woman is starring at you. The flesh color is a much more tan style than most and the bright black hair and eyebrows really bring everything together. I especially like how bright the tiara is. A stunning gold that matches the gold in her costume with the bold red star right in the center.. Also the hair is done straight just like the cartoon. It's not sculpted real word to give it all the texture, just black and molded to flow and curl over her shoulders and around her ears. And speaking of the ears the addition of the bright white star earrings are a fantastic touch.
Moving down you see the top of the classic costume in full effect. Bright cherry red halter top with the golden WW logo sticking right in your face. Once again you see the tan flesh color which is predominate in the center so there is not a lot going on. Which is a good thing as Wonder Woman has a very simple patriotic style costume. You get all you need to here. The bright red top followed by the bright yellow “WW” design and then back to red. Its done just to show her logo and nothing much more. Simple and effective which for a character like wonder woman is all you need. No real shading done as this is designed to look just like her cartoon counterpart, and it succeeds on every level.
The base is some type pillar from Paradise Island. It has a real Roman Coliseum look about it. A bright grey completely shadowed and etched in black. Everything is sculpted and molded to look like real stone. From the lines in the it’s a very detailed design. Now with that said its still a cartoon style so its not loaded with real world cracks and holes or tons of shading. No this is a detailed yet smooth base. I really enjoy the fact they did her base like a pillar. I for one associate Wonder Woman with Paradise Island and this reminds me of that.
Once again this a very sleek bust. Cartoon accurate, and a Justice League was always a favorite cartoon of mine I love having this as part of my collection. Now like all of these busts I review this one is limited as well. Only 1000 of these have been made so you better act fast and pick one up today,

Before her descent into madness, Dr. Harleen Quinzel was a promising psychiatrist assigned to Arkham Asylum, Gotham's home for the criminally insane. But after meeting the Joker, the young doctor became obsessed with the crazed criminal's warped mind. Sensing opportunity, the Joker manipulated her, driving his therapist so mad that he was able to control her. Harleen fell in love with the villain, broke him out of Arkham and devoted her life to making him happy and spreading his bloody brand of mayhem
Harley Quinn is my favorite female comic book villain of all time. She is my wife’s favorite comic character by far. In fact my wife has a large amount of Harley Quinn statues, cloths, purses, jackets, pants, shoes, you name it. Now I personally prefer the classic Jester look of Harley not the Suicide Squad version so when Diamond Select and Gentle Giant announced they were making a bust based on her classic look and appearance from Batman the Animated Series I knew this would be another must have for the collection.
Starting with the face you can see this is a perfect match for her animated series counterpart. The cheekbones, red lips, villainess smile it’s all here. It’s a dead ringer. She’s painted in her trademark white that is as bright as bright could be. It shines in the light. No real shading to speak of, just shadows from the molding and placement of the cheeks and such. No this is a ghastly yet beautiful white face at its cartoon best. The eyes have the bold black mask painted around them. You can see her eyelashes are sticking out a bit, which only helps to accentuate her big blue eyes. All done in cartoon style of course. From the chin to the eyebrows it’s a dead ringer. No fancy hair on this one. This is the old school jester outfit done in red and black. So Harley is wearing her trademark jester hat that is part of the overall outfit. Half black and half red with the points hanging down and towards the back with a white beanie ball at the bottom.
The top of the body is accurate with the red and black body suite going smooth all the way around. It’s a very shiny paint job that glistens in the light. The top has the white bib with the balls on all three points. It’s painted and designed to give it a true animated style look. Moving down you can the outfit just continues. Harley in the cartoons just wears one big body suit and this captures it perfectly. The cool thing is the top half is black on the left and red on the right, whereas her hat red on the left and black on the right. Same style just a variation of the colors. Mixing them up may not seem like a lot but it really does bring out more in the piece.
The base is a work of art. It’s a big top tent. Dull white, almost a cream color and red stripes on the top where Harley is resting that sculpt into the roof outline then connecting to the black and dark green base itself. Surrounding the base are tiny little Hyenas with dog collars. It’s a fantastic touch as Harley always has a pet hyena with her. It’s a great take on the old school horse on a merry go round. And as Harley is usually hiding out with the Joker at an abandoned amusement parks this was a great idea for a base. It really gives it that sinister clown element.
This is another amazing bust from the good folks at Gentle Giant and Diamond Select Toys. Plus its Harley Quinn, and trust me you can never have to much Harley Quinn memorabilia on display. Pick one up right away. Now these are limited only 1000 made so act fast.
