UNBOXING: Cover Girls of the DC Universe: Harley Quinn Statue

by

A couple of weeks ago, my Cover Girls of the DC Universe: Harley Quinn statue arrived.  Based on the art of Adam Hughes, the boxed treasure has been begging to be opened.  I finally took the plunge, opened the box, and am sharing the event – and the images, with you.

Whenever a statue pops up based on the stylings of Adam Hughes, I’m always interested in how it is going to come out.  Sculptor Jack Mathews did a great job on this one, capturing the cute pose, with deadly tones to a tee.

Measuring in at 9.5-inches high, on a 4.2 by 5.5-inch base, this cold cast porcelain is well built.  Unlike the Black Canary statue, Harley does come attached to the base, so you don’t have to worry about the figure and base separating when you pick it up.

I really like the paint job on this statue. The figure is done in glossy red, white, and black, while the blood splattered hammer is has a matte finish to it.  I like that mixture of finishes as it give the product that extra attention to detail.

What’s not to like?  It would be nice if DC Direct could make these statues a tad larger in scale – I’m thinking along the lines of the mega sized comiquettes that Sideshow Collectibles is putting out for the Marvel characters – but those tend to be really rare and really expensive, so a sub-10-inch statue available to all is justifiable compromise.

The Cover Girls of the DC Universe: Harley Quinn Statue is still available as the company made 8,000 of these things, and you can find the price as low as $75.00 online.

Overall I like the statue, it’s well made, and looks great sitting on the shelf.  If you are a fan of Hughes style, like having things to show off, or like to collect things of beauty, you can’t go wrong here.  4.5 out of 5 Stars.
