Ame Comi Harley Quinn mini statue, by DC Direct

While I hope to acquire the larger Harley Quinn Ame Comi statue, this one is quite nice, nicer perhaps, than the big one. I believe the colors to be very matte on the large one, where as the red of her costume here on the mini version is a very glossy, metallic red, and the white collar piece is actually pearlescent, rather than straight white. I prefer the pose on this one more too. I like the little color details on her legs and feet, which break up the red/black scheme for which Harley is known. The gold-trimmed blue and green sections at the ends of her pants, and the green trim on the shoes really jump out at you, but at the same time, I feel they blend in with the costume very well, making it better. It seems like the oval cutouts all around the thigh portion would make the outfit very prone to ripping while putting it on, if she just catches one with her foot, the whole thing could rip off, but I like the look.

I'm very glad to have gotten this new version, I think I'll quite like the mini versions, it's fun that they're different poses to costumes already released. I'm still not really interested in the blue/gray Batgirl, and though I think the mini Poison Ivy is better than the regular sized one, I'm not particularly tempted to get it. However, if I recall Series 2 correctly, it has Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman and one similar to the Supergirl (v2) I posted last time, so I will have to get all three, and series 3 has Power Girl and Donna Troy, or something like that, I may have the actually characters confused, but I'm pretty sure I want all of mini series 2 and 2 of the 3 of mini series 3.

I agree about the color accents on her legs and feet. I like that they kind of jump out, but still go well with the outfit.
I also really like the metallic red.
