Following up on the Batman from the <em>Batman: The Animated Series</em> ArtFX+, we’re now getting Harley Quinn and The Joker as well! I really love how the Harley here captures her more playful side from the show as opposed to the hyper sexualized versions we’ve been getting lately due to <em>Suicide Squad</em>, and The Joker has his iconic purple suit and massive grin, which I will always love in any form. The pair are both quite nice looking and are, honestly, must haves for any fans of the iconic show.</p>

    Winter WonFest 2018: Persona 5 figmas & Nendoroids

    You may be thinking, “Leah, 4 announcements isn’t really worth its own post!” To which I say, “shhh, let me have this moment.” Because do you know what we are getting? Did the header give it away? We’re getting a YUSUKE FIGMA. My beautiful husband can now be in my life to give me art advice. Oh, and figma Anne too! Both in their Phantom Thieves garb, of course.

    We also have two Nendoroid announcements: Futaba (in casual clothing) and the MC (in his Joker garb). I wonder why they’re in non-matching outfits? Maybe we will get two full lines of the whole cast?? Hey, a girl can dream.

So far we only have Joker in the lineup, but he comes with a little Morgana so it’s kind of like two for the price of one! I’m considering putting Morgana on my alarm clock to give me even less of a reason to wake up. I mean, just imagine it: you roll over in the morning to hit your alarm and are faced with the “it’s time for bed” cat. What’s one more hit of the snooze, right?</p>

    Sometimes I know that a figure is coming but I pray and pray that my predictions aren’t right. I mean, we all knew there would be tons of Suicide Squad merch but I don’t want any of it. Heath Ledger Joker Nendo? Creepy, adorable perfection. But I’d be really, really happy if I never had to look at Leto Joker (and stupid SS Harley) again. I just have a lot of rage in my heart about this movie okay. A lot of rage.
