Flash Collectibles at SDCC

Category: Collectibles — By

Along with Toy Fair, San Diego Comic-Con is known for being one of the major showcases of upcoming toys and statues. This year has been no different, giving fans some sneak peeks at several Flash-related figures.

sideshow prototype There’s a truly amazing 1:6 scale Flash figure coming out from Sideshow Collectibles. I don’t think the release date or price (Sideshow tends to have high-end products which are priced accordingly) have been announced yet, but it’s awfully tempting. There will also be a Green Lantern, Superman, and Batman released in the same line, and you can see some more photos here.

See more after the jump.

New Flash Action Figure Announced

DC Collectibles has given us a sneak peek at the action figures and statues to be showcased at San Diego Comic-Con in a couple of weeks, and one of them is a figure of Barry Allen from the upcoming Flash TV series. So far it looks nicely poseable and is a great likeness of actor Grant Gustin in the Flash suit, which bodes well.

There are no other details as of yet, but you can see the rest of the imminent figures at DC’s blog, and some of them look really nice. Presumably we’ll learn more about the figures once SDCC is underway. And if you’ll be attending SDCC, the blog post has information about when and where the collectibles panels will be held.

What do you think of the figure so far? Is anyone hoping for more figures based on the TV series?

Take Back Flash

Category: Fun — By

The current Weekend Hashtag Project on Instagram is #WHPtakebackflash. The idea is to use the flash on your phone camera…but the double meaning was too good to pass up.

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.
