I want to love this, but I don't think I do. The gloss paint kills it for me, too.

It doesn't hurt that Icons Harley is the best female figure I own. I may order this and see what the reviewers say, but Icons Harley is one of the few figures I feel I never need to replace.

Man I just thought, if they do hush with the no gun rule, would they just sculpt molded guns in holsters and leave it or give him empty holsters.

Molded guns in the holster would be hilarious because my #1 issue with the dcd hush was he had guns molded into his god damn hands!

Such irony!

He’s going to have empty holsters, I’m sure of it.

Instant preorder. And as long as Mafex keeps making these classic looks for great DC characters, I’ll keep preordering.

Especially since I’ll have forever to save the cash.

Have fun, all!

Would have liked an unmasked head for Harley, but this figure looks nice.

Honestly, this looks 100% accurate to the Hush book. I really like the gloss look to the costume and is an instant (albeit expensive) PO.
If it wasn't Hush I would pass on an expensive import figure but that book nailed a lot of iconic modern Batman family looks that are yet to be equalled or bettered. I hope Mafex give us the full compliment. Harley was a given and she looks great, Nightwing, Huntress, Jim Gordon and Robin are who I wish to see most.

Would it be possible that it will come with the gun too but it's not included in the description or pictures due to that ban that DC has on firearms?
Every time I think DC or WB couldn't be more dumb, they prove me wrong.

Speaking of Hush/Jason Todd he's meant to be released in June/July so does anyone know when we should actually expect him to ship?

Cool thanks, Hush is my first Mafex but I've heard they are often delayed from the initial release date

I need a Hush Poison Ivy, Jim Lee-style Wonder Woman, and Knightfall Bane. Then I can pretty much call my DC collection done.

Have any Mafex DC figures, that were originally solicited with guns, come out? Just curious if Mafex is now keeping them out of promo images but still including them with figures.

Have fun!

None have come out to my knowledge. One of the first ones to be "updated" was Armored Batman and that for sure hasn't released. The fact that they updated the solicitation images AND removed the wording about those accessories does not bode well.

DC is baffling with their morals. No guns and no 'being a hero.' ;)

DC's morales make general sense to me--they allow guns in the comics which these days are overwhelmingly read by adults, but they don't allow it on toys which are more of a mixed audience where anyone of any age down to toddlers might want to play with an action figure. If they were more discriminating they should allow guns on high-end action figures like those Mafex creates that little kids are unlikely to ever be allowed to buy or play with by parents, but for whatever reason splitting that hair doesn't seem to have occurred to them.

In their defense it may be just this simple: five-year old kid asks mom for the Mafex Harley or Joker, and when they see the gun in the ad they think less of DC for including that with what the parent views simply as a children's toy. Adult collectors of toys like all of us aren't even known to exist to the great majority of parents.

Think of the children! All of them importing their $100 fragile figures can not have guns!
