Speed Reading: Merit Badges, Plush Flash, Sonic Month and More

Category: Round-Ups — By @ 6:33 pm

Some Flashy linkblogging for the weekend…

Fanboy Scouts has launched a series of Merit Badges for Geeks including a Speedster badge, awarded for “the display of any of the following speed-related attributes: Super Speed, Speed Control, Kinetic Energy Manipulation, Infinite Mass Punch, Time Travel or Hyper-Vibration.”

Check out Mark Grambau’s super-hero/super-villain posters.

The Hooded Utilitarian continues reading the Silver Age Flash, this time moving on to the few solo issues.

Sideshow Collectibles has the Flash “As you’ve never seen him before” — as a plush toy! (OK, I have seen Flash plush toys before, but not quite like this one.)

The 1992 Elongated Man miniseries makes CSBG’s Year of Cool Comics.

In other speedster news, First Comics News is making August Sonic the Hedgehog Month.

    I picked up the Speedster Merit badge and the broom riding one for my wife since she is a big Potter fan. They shipped super quick and are really nicely put together. I can’t recommend them enough.

    The plush toy could possibly scare kids at night in the dark.

    The plush toys are already in Toys R Us stores. Saw one this morning.

  4. I’ve wanted that Flash plush ever since I saw the Batman and Superman versions available at Tate’s Comics. My best friend actually bought it for me last Wednesday, and it’s sooo cute in person. Not as huggable as my bigger Flash plushie, but the perfect size to be a purse buddy for when I plan to fall asleep in the gridlocked traffic on the way down to Miami.
    Definitely picking up that Speedster merit badge once I get paid. I’ll either put it on my next purse or nerd up one of my plain jackets. Hmm, stickerback or heat seal back..?
