Square Enix Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Knight 1/7 Harley Quinn Action Figure Revealed

Pre-order from Sideshow Collectibles

"It would be a shame to get blood all over my nice new outfit" ― Harley Quinn

A Blackgate Prison and Arkham Asylum psychiatrist initially assigned to treat the Joker, Dr. Harleen Quinzel instead became fixated on her patient, believing herself to be in love with him. She helped him escape from confinement and took on her own criminal identity as Harley Quinn. Quinn is a violent and unpredictable felon whose only motivation, beyond general mayhem, is achieving the Joker’s approval. Because of his cruel and mercurial nature, this in some ways makes her just another one of his victims - albeit a very dangerous one.

Harley Quinn appears in Batman: Arkham Knight as one of Batman's many antagonists, as well as being the second confirmed playable character in the game. She will feature her own unique gadgets and gameplay elements. She dons a costume similar to her appearance in 2011's Batman: Arkham City and also seems to combine that look with her "New 52" getup, along with a few friendly nods towards the nurse outfit from 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum.

This is Square Enix Play Arts Kai Batman: Arkham Knight 1/7th scale Harley Quinn Action Figure. The femme fatale figure features multiple points of articulation, three sets of hands, two head sculpts, a policeman’s hat, a baseball bat, a pistol, and a figure stand. Not bad for a character that started out 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 for the animated Batman television series "Batman: The Animated Series" which aired from September 5, 1992 to September 15, 1995, with a total of 85 episodes. The character was so popular that she was eventually incorporated into the DC Comics universe. And look at where she is now.

Sideshow Collectibles and Square Enix are excited to introduce the Harley Quinn Collectible Figure from the action-adventure video game Batman: Arkham Knight. Harley, the lovable villainess, isn't afraid of being called a liar or a cheat! Featuring clicking ball joint technology in her knees for a wide range of motion, fans can capture and hold her acrobatic action poses while maintaining a natural look.

Harley Quinn's iconic outfit was sculpted with great detail to accentuate her coquettish charms. Painted with a signature creepy tone fit for a villain, her costume details mimic realistic dirt and grime, like she just stepped right out of Arkham City.

The collectible figure includes several accessories to tie up all of her unique craziness in one sweet package, including an interchangeable head, hair pieces, a gun, a bat and the police hat she dons in one of her most memorable in-game scenes.
