Fans of DC Entertainment’s Harley Quinn attending New York Comic Con 2016 may want to set aside some time for a photo opportunity — a life-size LEGO Harley Quinn will debut at the Javits Convention Center celebrating the launch of DC Super Hero Girl’s LEGO Friends line.
The Harley Quinn LEGO statue will join the likes of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman as heroes to have their likeness replicated by the toy blocks. These statues have become a trademark of the larger conventions, having made appearances at Comic-Con International in San Diego and Toy Fair.
Photos of the LEGO statue features Harley in her signature DC Super Hero Girls garb — a white, red and black argyle sweater, blue shorts, and red and black leggings. Her accessory is, naturally, a large grey mallet with red diamonds in its head.
The Harley Quinn Lego statue comes in at 5’3” tall, weighs 63 lbs. and is built out of 12,789 bricks. The overall time to design and build the statue was 120 hours.
Harley Quinn’s popularity is at an all-time high, thanks to Margot Robbie’s breakout performance as Quinn in Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad” film. Robbie signed an exclusive first-look deal with Warner Bros., which is rumored to include Robbie being the executive producer on a stand-alone “Harley Quinn” movie.
When DC Comics kicked off its DC Rebirth publishing initiative, the first issue of the relaunched “Harley Quinn” series sold over 400,000 copies.
