Collectible TIme #64: DC Multiverse Suicide Squad 6" Joker and Harley Quinn; plus AMT Bat-Missile Reissue

More by accident than by plan (i.e., by wandering into my local Toys"R"Us), I purchased a couple DC Multiverse "Suicide Squad" 6" figures: The Joker and Harley Quinn.

In this instance, Jared Leto's Clown Price of Crime is represented in a spiffy, silver jacket with protruding red shirt and is equipped with elegant, purple weaponry. 

Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn is naturally shapely and in this instance, tatooed, projecting an air of comedic danger with her enclosed, buffoonish hammer.

The figures are nicely packaged and well jointed for effective posing, costing (as do most 6" Multiverse pieces) about $20 each. They also come with parts that will complete an Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Killer Croc, but damn it, why not just offer a full Croc figure for those who desire it, instead of making folks search high and low for additional figures that always prove elusive? (I really hate this kind of catch-ya stuff. Marvel is just as guilty with its Legends line.)

To balance these new pieces, Z&Z Hobbies surprised me with an AMT reissue of the "Batman Returns" Bat-Missile kit. Originally released in '92,  the "missile" is, in truth, just the center portion of Michael Keaton's Batmobile, but it's no less an official vehicle as such. Also, as with the '89 Batwing (see "Collectible Time #61": July '16), the Bat-Missile comes with a cool backdrop for display. (The kit sells for about $30 at most retailers.)

All in all, a pretty neat Bat-trio, I must say!!!
