The Iconic And Colorful Joker Sidekick Has Some Sweet Sets She Breaks Into
Who Is Harley Quinn?
Harley Quinn is a villain pseudonym for the infamous Joker sidekick, Harleen Quinzel. She used to be a psychologist at Arkham Asylum in Gotham City, but quickly fell in love with The Joker. Multiple comics delve into how she transformed into the playing-card colored villain. Joker and Harley have an on-again, off-again relationship, and her tumultuous love prospect leads her to becoming an anti-hero multiple times.
What Is The Importance Of Her Placement In LEGO® Sets?
Due to her phenomenal portrayal by Margot Robbie, Harley Quinn and merchandise associated with her have become fast, lucrative collector’s items. Her sets represent an awesome example of a long-hold strategy for LEGO® investing.
Let’s Dive Into My Top 3 Sets From Harley Quinn LEGO® Builds
LEGO® DC Batman Versus Harley Quinn 76220
This is a super affordable LEGO® set and still clocks in at around $10 for a sweet, and silly LEGO® DC gift for friends, or family. It includes a lovely Harley Quinn LEGO® minifigure with her typical oversized wooden mallet. She likes the hammer best to beat up Batman because it never runs out of ammo! The skateboard she rides on is a fun twist, because how in the world would it be able to keep up with Batman on his bat-cycle? This is a newer, small set that is a must have. I intend to keep a bunch of these for reselling in the future.
LEGO® Super Heroes Batman: Gotham City Cycle Chase 76053
This set originally came out at $19.99 USD and has already spiked to $49.00 USD on the reseller market. Hence, my theory about these sets being an extra-awesome long term investment. I find that with niche character offerings, there is usually a pairing of another unique minifiure – in this case Dead Shot appears in this set. The combination of two anti-heros, Harley Quinn & Dead Shot, coupled with the addition of the iconic Batman and Bat-cycle make for a quick buy, a long hold, a profitable investment, or even just a fun build/display piece. If you can still find it on the market, I highly recommend buying it!
LEGO DC Batman Joker’s Trike Chase 76159
This set originally retailed for $39.99 but is now easily up to $60.00 USD on the reseller market. Why? Again, its a combination of the lucrative Harley Quinn sub-theme, awesome minifigures, and even a homeage to The Dark Knight’s tumbler. While The Joker and Batman are always a welcome minifigure, the Robin and Harley Quinn minifigs (with Harley Sporting a unique mallet and hairstyle) surely raise the potential of this set. Also, Robin’s motorcyle is incredible – it is a one-of-a-kind find in this set!
Harley Quinn LEGO® Is A Fun Build And A Solid Investment
You cannot go wrong with a Harley Quinn LEGO® set. Either you gift it to a friend who loves her, build it yourself, or hold onto it for a reselling factor. These DC LEGO® sets have the propensity to grow in price by a good 20-30%, which is much higher than the annual 8-11% price increase most sets will see. As for building them? Harley Quinn is a colorful, bombastic, and complicated villain who would make a great addition to your LEGO® Collection!
