Preview Sideshow Exclusive DC Comics 1/6 scale Harley Quinn 12-inch clown princess figure

DC Comics' clown princess of chaos, the incomparable Harley Quinn, makes her long-awaited debut in Sideshow Collectibles' Sixth Scale figure line. Dressed to kill in a detailed fabric bodysuit, fitted corset and jester tights, the charmingly psychotic super villain is ready to hit the town, wreaking her special brand of havoc on the unsuspecting citizens of Gotham. Harley's packing a delightfully dangerous bag of tricks, including her signature wooden mallet, an oversized pop gun, and comically engraved brass knuckles, to name a few. Join the one and only Harley Quinn on her wonderfully deranged spree of bedlam and madness!

The Harley Quinn Sixth Scale Figure features: Fully Articulated Body, Two Harlequin jester heads with alternate expressions; grinning and mischievous. Fabric Costume includes Black and Red Bodysuit, corset, lace detailing and jester tights. Giant Wooden Mallet (Printed Your Face Here), Oversized Pop-Gun, Customized Boots (Engraved KA-POW on soles), Variety of interchangeable hands for various gags and tricks, including: Brass knuckle fist (Engraved HA HA), Hand with syringe. Sideshow Exclusive: Engraved Butcher's Knife

This is one character that started on TV. Harley Quinn was created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, based on (and created for) Dini's friend Arleen Sorkin, who provided the character's voice. The character was so popular that she was eventually incorporated into the DC Comics universe.

Interestingly enough, Sideshow's Harley Quinn seems to have her jester hat done wrongly. In most renditions and even in the Key Art which was used as a basis for making the figure, the "tails" of her hat correspond with the base color i.e. red on one side and black on the other but it seems the sixth scale figure has it in reverse and in alternate colors with a mix of red and black. Hmmmm

Sideshow Exclusive will include the Engraved Butcher's Knife
