Comic-Con Trailers: The Best of the Best, Ranked
Margot Robbie’s turn as Harley Quinn in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” film has already inspired clothing, jewelry, toys and prop weapons, so it perhaps was only a matter of time before the antiheroine expanded into the world of hair products. That time is now.
Given that Hot Topic unveiled a Harley Quinn “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt in March, it should come as no surprise the shopping mall staple is launching an entire “Suicide Squad” collection, “inspired by the worst heroes ever” (and also the upcoming film).
Debuting July 22, the line is of course heavy on Harley and The Joker, with sweaters, tank tops, dresses, skinny jeans, boxer shorts, a trench coat and more (including a black-and-silver “Puddin” choker). However, Katana is also represented with a jacket.
“Suicide Squad” hits theaters this August, which means there’s still plenty of time to get your opening night outfit together — so why not start out with NiKEiD’s customized “Suicide Squad” Converse Kicks?
The unisex high tops currently retail for $80 on the Nike webstore and feature several different “Suicide Squad” characters, specifically Harley Quinn, The Joker and Deadshot. The kicks are also available with the customer’s choice of rubber sidewall, racing stripe, lace, patch logo and more.
Looking to add a little comic-book flair to your wardrobe? Merchoid has debuted its new line of skirts and dresses based on DC Comics’ well-known characters.
The new collection features eight dresses and two skirts inspired by Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Batman and Superman.
With seen plenty of Suicide Squad Pop! vinyl figures, both in the wild and in official images. However, it turns out those were only the beginning.
In addition to the standard figures, which include most of the characters from the upcoming Warner Bros. film (including tw0 Deadshots), Funko has debuted a half-dozen additional versions of Harley Quinn and the Joker, available exclusively at select retailers.
Merchoid has unveiled its line of licensed “Suicide Squad” clothing products, which includes various t-shirts and hats with the film’s logo, tops inspired by Harley Quinn and the Joker, baseball caps, jackers, accessories, and much more. Items from the line are currently available for pre-order, ahead of the official release in June.
Among the highlights in the collection is the “Daddy’s Little Monster” 3/4 sleeve shirt, which is an exact replica of the shirt Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn wears in the film.
Harley Quinn has been a cosplay staple for years, between her growing popularity and the upcoming release of the Suicide Squad movie, we’re virtually guaranteed to reach peak puddin’ this summer at conventions. That doesn’t mean you should dump that red-and-black costume you’ve worked so long on — you just need to stand out in the crowd. Say, with your own comically oversized prop hammer.
In a clear, and welcome, sign that merchandising is ramping up for Suicide Squad, no sooner did Tamashii Nations debut itsS.H. Figuarts Joker and Harley Quinn action figures than images and details have surfaced for Medicom’s MAFEX versions.
While we saw the Joker last month, this is our first look at Harley, based on the likeness of actress Margot Robbie. You have to admit, the head sculpts are pretty much spot-on.
Tamashii Nations has debuted two new “Suicide Squad” figures for the Joker and Harley Quinn, modelled very closely after Jared Leto and Margot Robbie as they appear in the film.
The figures are being released under the 6″ S.H. Figuarts line, and come with accessories from the film, such as a baseball bat for the Harley figure, and two pink pistols for the Joker.
No further details have been revealed at this time, but it’s likely the figures will sell for somewhere between $79.99 and $94.99 USD each, like other toys in the line.
First there was the licensed “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt, and soon cosplayers will be able to get their hands on a bat and comically oversized mallet, just like the ones Harley Quinn wields in the Suicide Squad movie.
Well, not just like. They’re part of Factory Entertainment’s SWAT (“Soft Weapons and Tactics”) line, which also includes plush replicas of Batman’s Batarang and Wonder Woman’s sword and shield from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Attending a comic convention dressed as a Redshirt from Star Trek is, y’know, fine but not exactly inspired. But attending a convention dressed as a Redshirt, and then posing with other cosplayers as they “kill” you over and over again? Genius!
That’s what Timothey Adam did last weekend at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, recruiting cosplayers dressed as characters ranging from Batman and Harley Quinn to Chewbacca and the War Boys to put that Star Trek trope to the test.
Beginning as a series of retro-style statuettes, DC Comics’ Bombshells has inspired variant covers, a comic book, cosplay and, now, a fashion collection.
Hot Topic has unveiled a limited-edition DC Comics Bombshells line that includes a Batwoman hat and baseball dress, Wonder Woman shorts and top, a Poison Ivy dress, and a Harley Quinn aviator jacket.
The Suicide Squad movie doesn’t arrive for another four months yet, but already DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products are filling stores with licensed apparel. In addition to that Hot Topics-exclusive “Daddy’s Lil Monster” T-shirt, there’s now a “Forever Evil” collection from shopping-mall mainstay Spencer’s.
An untold number of unlicensed “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirts have sprung up since the first Suicide Squad set photos leaked showing Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn wearing the tattered tee. However, now you can own the real deal, courtesy of Hot Topic.

In plenty of time for the Suicide Squad movie, Kotobukiya has officially unveiled the next release in its line of Bishoujo statues based on the heroes and villains of DC Comics: Harley Quinn.
Inspired by her New 52 depiction, as interpreted by Shunya Yamashita, the 1/7th-scale statue stands nearly 9 inches, and features an oversize hammer, twin holstered pistols, a belt with spare ammunition clips, and a fluttering cape.
