Personally, I think it's a brash, reckless push made for marketing and licensing reasons. Someone at DC thinks they can sell millions in licensed Harley goods.
To be fair, DC has been selling millions in licensed Harley goods. That's why Hot topic has a complete section for her only. But the statement is a kick in the gonads for all Green Lantern and Flash fans

Welp, I buy Batman and Flash licensed goods primarily (shirt, shoes, watches, etc) when it comes to DC...but my ex-wife bought Harley Quinn stuff in droves (as well as Joker) (My current wife she doesn't really get into any of that). Harley Quinn is the "super hero" symbol for all rebel type girls pretty much everywhere. Wonder Woman is for pretty much every other female out there that doesn't resonate with HQ. So no surprise. GL is probably barely a blip out there. Heck, Green Arrow probably does better at this point. And Flash is slightly above both of those.

I wish there was more Nightwing stuff myself, but I digress.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I realize that it's been out for quite a while but I just finally watched Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders on Saturday and have to say I was a tad disappointed in it. I am a fan of the 66 series and I know often times it was goofy but I feel like the plot and some things about the film were too goofy. It seems like they let it go more over the top than an average episode because it was animated. I didn't dislike it but had different expectations. I'm hoping Batman vs. Two-Face will be better.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Does this mark the end of Target's exclusive DC Animated Steelbooks? Looks like the exclusive for the upcoming Two-Face release is going to be a lenticular slipcover.

Maybe BB or Walmart will have a steelbook.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Lame if true. I would not have bought at least two of the last five discs (teen titans and jld) if not for the steel books. Oh well will save some money in the long run. Down for Batman vs Twoface regardless

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

That would force me to rent more of these from the library rather than buying them and only watching them once. So yeah, while it sucks, it might actually work out for the better. And their new $20 pricing didn't help either. I still see steelbook copies of Batman & Harley Quinn at multiple Target stores, which wasn't always the case with prior releases.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

Well that sucks. I wouldn't have started getting the Steelbooks in that case. I'll go back to getting the regular releases if Target stops doing the Steelbook releases.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

For me it will probably equal me only buying the better reviewed titles once they hit clearance and looking to sell many of the DC steelbooks I've purchased.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

I've collected most of the films just because I enjoy them. So I won't be selling them off but I would have kept them uniform looking rather than having some in standard cases and some in Steelbook cases. Ah well I guess.

Re: DC Animated Universe Films

The retailer foots the bill for the extra cost of steelbooks. It's possible another chain took over the Steelbooks.

It's interesting how many times Harley's looks have changed in 25 years.
