Thanks to The Fwoosh, we have some awesome shots of the newly released DCUC Mad Love 2-pack, which has started showing up at Toys R Us in the US.
The figures within are exact copies of their first release counterparts, although Joker sports a new suit and Harley Quinn finally has a properly painted face without the blue shadowing.
All the accessories, Harley’s mallet and pop-gun and Joker’s mallet, cane, playing cards and laughing fish, are included within the set, so if this is your first Joker and Harley Quinn, you get all the accessories from their original releases.
Articulation on Joker takes a slight hit over the Wave 10 original from 2009, as his neck is stiffer and doesn’t have the full range of motion the Wave 10 version did. Also, his new coat is a much stiffer plastic, which seems to hinder the ab movement. The rocker ankles are also missing, giving this Joker a much stiffer stance than the original.
Paint is good as well. As mentioned, the blue shading on Harley Quinn is gone, although a nice subtle wash around the eyes is present. Her face is a much nicer shade of white this time, as is Jokers. The pinstripes on Joker’s pants is also a nice, subtle affect.
Packaging is done up in the same style as the Tango with Evil painting done by Alex Ross, which inspired this set and looks great if you’re a MISB collector. If not, no need to worry about the pose warping limbs on the figures as they are packaged in a way that prevents this from happening.
All in all, this is a great set. It has some small flaws, but they can easily be overlooked considering all that you get within this 2-pack. Highly recommended, even if you already have Joker and Harley figures. They’re improvements, for the most part, over their original releases, all the accessories are present and the packaging is aces all around!
