Perfect for Comic Con season the Kidrobot x DC Comics Harley Quinn Medium Art Figure done by artist, Brandt Peters, has officially launched online at Kidrobot.com and in select retail stores world-wide. The piece itself was a special figure for artist Brandt Peters as he reminisced on his 2014 collaboration wth DC’s artistic elite to illustrate Harley Quinn in DC Comic’s Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1: Get Yer Cheer Outta My Ear. To talk about the toy a little bit more here is our good friend Chris Holt aka The Toy Viking:
From the mind of Brandt Peters (who brought you The 13 Dunny Series as well as about a thousand other figures in his career) comes a completely new take on everyone’s favorite doctor from Arkham Asylum, Harley Quinn. He has teamed up with Kidrobot to continue to push the boundaries of the DC Comics characters you know and love and present them in a way you’ve never seen before.
Brandt started his journey with Miss Quinn when he was asked to contribute to her Holiday Special comic, forever infusing his signature style with the Joker’s paramour. Now she makes the leap from the page to vinyl in a super stylized figure. Armed with her trusty mallet and standing on a base made from the liberated controls of a marionette, Gotham’s it girl is ready to bring a heavy dose of chaos into your collection.
Available in both full color and super limited Kidrobot.com exclusive greyscale (limited to 200 pieces world-wide), she is available now at www.kidrobot.com.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
