Courtesy of Toynewsi.com (my favorite source for Action Figure news for the last few years) we have some more Flash news from Toy Fair 2010. New additions to the DC Infinite Superheroes 3.75 inch line include Rogue mainstays, Heatwave and The Trickster. The Flash in the middle looks to be Wally West upgraded with the new increased articulation. It definitely looks like the same head sculpt from the first Wally they released a few years back. Not to mention the belt converges in the middle.
And in case you missed them, Mattel also conveniently showcased previously released Brave and the Bold Action Figures, The Top and Gorilla Grodd. Both of which were included in two packs released with a different Batman figure.
Can’t wait until Heatwave, Trickster and the new Wally hit the shelves but I still need to try and track down The Top and Gorilla Grodd somehow. I just wish every version of Grodd wasn’t so darn expensive and “hard to find”. Just a little annoying.
Matty Collector posted a checklist for all the upcoming Justice League Unlimited action figures being released this year. I scrolled through it quickly and noticed a name that I hadn’t noticed in any of the pics from Toy Fair 2010 posted on the net so far: Weather Wizard! The figure is based on his appearance from the classic Superman: The Animated Series episode “Speed Demons”, which also featured the first appearance of The Flash in a race around the world with Superman.
Since I hadn’t noticed any pics I did a little searching online and came across an Ebay Auction that ended a month ago with a picture of him.
I was never too pleased with the design they used for my favorite Rogue on the show but putting that aside it looks pretty solid. I will definitely be picking it up very soon. I just hope that they get cracking on making some more Flash Rogues for DC Universe Classics.
