Oddball Items: The Whack-a-Villain Harley

One of my favorite things to collect when it comes to Harley merchandise is oddball, rare items. They’re interesting, usually have a story to them, and stand out on the shelves in a sea of red and black.

So let’s talk about one of my most curious of collectibles: the Harley piece from the Batman Whack-a-Villain arcade game.

A Batman villain themed version of Whack-a-Mole has been around for quite a few years. There used to be one in the mini version of an arcade my Walmart used to have – that’s where my first sighting of this machine was.

I wanted to own the machine itself, but this was an impossible task at the time and I just enjoyed it as much as I could, for as long as I could.

Skip ahead a few years, and a fellow collector asked me if I wanted to buy a rare (and rather ugly) Harley from her. Early 2020, all the way from Australia, I finally had a piece of the game I’d loved so much:

This is a piece I’m ALWAYS asked about, and I absolutely treasure it. Thank you so much to Cheyenne for parting with her. She’s in an excellent home.

Prepare for more weird and wonderful Harley Quinn items!
