Minifigure: #1 of 20 – Disco Harley Quinn
Released: January 1, 2018
He we are with our first of twenty looks at the next collectable LEGO minifigure series. This is the second set of figures to come from The LEGO Batman Movie. There are twenty in all. We’re going to take a look at each one, although we only have five at this time.
This is, appropriately, our first and the first figure out of this second series; the Joker’s girlfriend, Harley Quinn. This time she’s in the white party outfit that everyone wears during the dance scene as the end credits roll.
Immediately, you can see she has that big, red and black hairpiece that we’ve seen previous Harleys have, since LEGO started turning out sets based on this movie. We also saw a recoloring of this hairpiece in The LEGO Ninjago Movie Collectible Minifigure Series, when the N-POP Girl had this same hairpiece in bright pink and a baby blue.
You can also see that she’s wearing another tutu. This time it’s a solid white tutu, that fits between the torso and hip assembly, rather than the black and red that we got with Harley before. And we have the two roller skates on either side of her, one in pearl gold and the other in metallic silver.
The printing on the torso is quite nice. They started with a white base and then put down black print, and then a metallic gold for the bow tie. And then, overall there’s that metallic silver speckled all over the jacket.
Those speckles also continue down the sleeves and around to the back. You can also see the printing to show a low neckline across the top, and down along the sides there is a line on each side to simulate hips, that they often put on female minifigures. It is a little detail, but one we want to point out, as it limits the availability for later MOCs if you so desired. And it also just has this weird, “women have hips,” message with which we’re not totally on board.
And you can also see, on the black baseplate in the original photo, they’ve added yellow print for the bat symbol. That appears on all of the baseplates in this wave, which sets them apart from the first wave that had no print on the plates.
In our next look at the minifigures from this series, we’re going to look at Alfred, wearing a similar outfit. It’s a strange phenomenon, because the majority of the figures in white have already been released in The Joker Manor (70922), back in November.
