#32: Batman Arkham Knight - Harley Quinn

It got delayed several times, but as of two days ago, Arkham Knight is finally out. Because of the delays, the merchandise was able to beat the game itself to retail. Mattel put out a few figures in their 4 inch multiverse line, as well as the Hot Wheels version of the Batmobile, while DC Collectibles' toys were a bit closer to the game's launch. One of the selling points from the promotional materials is that Harley is a playable character for the first time in the series. Also, I think this is Harley's best redesign from the series, so the hype of the game's then imminent release got me to buy this figure. This design has a certain amount of whimsy that I think Harley benefits from. Harley is armed with the same bat she had during Arkham City, as well as a handgun. She has a couple of alternate hands, as well as a creepy/cute jack in the box that features a real spring. Overall, it's a good figure, one of the few from DC Collectibles in my collection. If only she had her mallet like the Mattel version...
