Hot Toys 1/6 "Harley Quinn" in Suicide Squad Pt.2

Looking at the head sculpt, it definitely resembles Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad (film).

What caught my attention is also the open mouth of the figure. The paint work and sculpting of the teeth and tongue really make her facial expressions more realistic.

Her boots with thin heels are lack of realism. They more or less restrict movement of the ankle joints.

Due to the flexibility of the ponytails, you would not have any restriction to pose her head. The holster is connected to the left side of the harness.

The customized revolver looks great but its cylinder swing out easily.

I just feel that the material used to make the shoulder holster is a bit cheap. I may be wrong...

Her outfit is perfectly fit and movie accurate. To unveil her short inside is a tattoo "I'm watching" printed on her buttock. On the right side of the harness, it's a double speedloader holder.

The "Good Night" baseball bat was often used by Harley in her fight scenes.

As Harley here is only looking to one direction in addition to the design of her elbow joints (each allows for a 90 degree bend), these reduce the number of poses you can get from her.

Although her stockings are elastic, I still dare not bend her legs too much (I just don't want to damage her stockings).

What I dislike about this figure is the new design of its wrist pegs. I have pulled one wrist peg apart when I tried to swap her hands. I have never come across such incident for a Hot Toys figure. So, Hot Toys...please stick to the old design!!!

The right above is the tattoo "Lucky You" with a dolphin printed on her abdomen. Overall, I am very pleased to own this figure for my collection and I highly recommend you to pick it up. You may see its box art and design here.

Alien Attack STF-01 "Firage"

As this is an unofficial toy, the company named it as Firage. If you are a great fan of Transformers film series, you know it was a new character "Mirage or Dino" appeared in Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. It transformed into a Ferrari 458 Italia.

ThreeZero 1/6 "Lin Mae" in The Great Wall Pt.2

Looking at the head sculpt in certain angle, it looks like Jing Tian 景甜 as Lin Mae in The Great Wall (film). But overall likeness is not perfect. The paint work on the sculpt is not what I expect from ThreeZero. I believe it can be better.

The body armor is made of soft plastic. They have lots of details embossed on the surface.

Both sides of the combat boots are lack of details and outer sole of the boots is flat (no grip at all).

I have no doubt about the weathering done by ThreeZero. All weapons and accessories look very realistic.

Really love the design of the sword and sheath. Unfortunately, both items are made of plastic.

There are details sculpted on the back of the armors too. You can remove the armors from the figure if you want.

As Lin Mae is the commander of the crane troop, the drawing of a crane is printed on her cape.

Her cape is made of lightweight fabric which is also soft and thin.

No display stand is required here as the figure has fairly tight joints.

The bending of elbow joints is up to a maximum of 90 degrees. You can rotate her head and move it up and down a little bit.

Due to the limited articulation, you can only get basic poses from this figure.

It's a plus point to ThreeZero if a spear is included with the figure which Lin Mae used it in all battlefields.

Overall, the head sculpt can be executed better and paint work on the sculpt needs improvement. The outfit is movie accurate and fits the figure perfectly. You may see its box package here.
