I’ve decided to abandon the 365 post format, I’m still going strong on my 365 toy project but realistically I keep falling behind on getting everything blogged in a timely manner so I’ll just post the interesting things. Plus this also gives me more of an opportunity to skip around a bit and focus on what I want to.
Yesterday, I realized I had never taken pictures of my Cover Girls of the DC Universe Poison Ivy statue so I decided to take some pictures of her alongside my Cover Girls of the DC Universe Harley Quinn statue. Both statues were made by DC Direct and were designed by Adam Hughes. They were designed to be companion pieces to one another and are both limited to 7000 pieces. Poison Ivy came out earlier this year, Harley Quinn was released late last year.
The sculpt on both of their bodies is phenomenal, their posing is well done too. Although I can’t particularly remember Poison Ivy with a shovel ever it definitely fits with her character and makes a good counterpart to Harley Quinn’s oversized mallet.
Both of the figures are awesome in their own right but together they are amazing, they were designed as counterparts after all.
As much as I absolutely love the sculpt and pose of the Harley Quinn statue, I am still not a fan of the super shiny gloss paint job. Not only does it make it hard to photograph her without glare, is also really stands out against Poison Ivy and not in a good way.
Although I am more a Harley Quinn than a Poison Ivy fan generally, this is a really nice Poison Ivy statue possibly my favorite of her released so far.
I find myself wishing she had a bit more of a seductive gaze.
