Justice League Hot Wheels Cars

Category: Collectibles — By

I think this is the full set of Justice League Hot Wheels cars, unless there’s a sixth I can’t remember. It’s pretty easy to tell which one represents Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern.

The set was among my son’s Christmas haul this year, and for once I found them all in one spot and decided to arrange them. I like the way the fins are used to suggest the Flash’s earpieces and Superman’s cape, and the transparency on Wonder Woman’s car calling back to her invisible jet. It’s also interesting to compare the approaches taken here to the “We Can Be Heroes” Kia cars.

I’m not sure how long it’ll last — I’ve been really bad at reading my email lately and the message was sent last week.

Thanks to West for the scoop!

Plush Impulse

Category: Fandom — By

Today’s guest post is by Christine Adamo.

I recently bought a Funko Flash plush, and it inspired me to create a similar plush of my favorite character who doesn’t get much love these days in toy form — Bart Allen. Especially as Impulse (Don’t get me wrong; I love that he still exists as Kid Flash, but I, like many, long for the Bart of old).
