Toy Fair 2013 Day 1 Flash Reveals!

TF13TIAlogodates

Hey Speed Readers,

Toy Fair, the biggest toy convention of the year, wrapped up it’s first day yesterday and already we’ve got some awesome Flash reveals!

DC Collectibles will be releasing even more Flash-related collectibles this year with a New 52 version of Captain Cold coming in September and The Flash from the video game, Injustice: Gods Among Us coming to us sometime in the summer.

Captain Cold will retail for $24.95 usd (although I’m hoping to find a good pre-order deal on him) and Injustice Flash will be included in a two-pack with another character that has yet to be revealed. That set will retail for $29.95 usd.

They will also be re-releasing the DC Collectibles’ New 52 Flash at least two more times so you can build up your army of Flash after-images. One will be included with Geoff Johns’ latest “challenge”, Vibe (which almost guarantees that this set will be sitting on comic shop pegs and in online stores for an eternity) for $39.95 and in a $99.95 seven pack (I love these things) with the New 52 versions of Captain Cold, Black Manta, The Joker, Catwoman, Aquaman and Batman slated for release Winter 2013.

Personally, I’m pretty hyped for the New 52 Captain Cold (desperately needed some new/redesigned Flash villains in my collection) and the Injustice Flash (just to have another version of Flash, plus I kind of dig the suit).

I’ve recently decided that I’m going to start collecting the DC Collectibles version of the New 52 figures and the Justice League but I’m going to have to go about this in a smart way in order to avoid spending tons of money and ending up with a million doubles.  If I purchased everything coming up in addition to everything I have already I would come out with : 4 of The Flash, 3 of Wonder Woman, 2 of Superman, 2 of Batman, 2 of Aquaman and 2 of Captain Cold (the six pack release likely won’t include any of the ice accessories).  Anyone who collected the Justice League Unlimited toyline knows just how annoying it is to end up with a bunch of duplicate figures. Especially ones that you can’t resell because the market is flooded.

So who else is excited to see some more Flash stuff heading our way? How do you think they did with translating the New 52 Captain Cold and Injustice Flash designs to action figures? Anything you are hoping to see in the next three days? Let us know in the comments below.

Thanks for reading,

    I’m….not stocked. Think I would have liked the Cold if his hood didn’t look more like an arctic crash helmet. (Or is it supposed to be hard now? I haven’t really seen the new Cold.)
    Waiting to find a scan of the new Pied Piper to decide on him….probably the only villain I’d ever truly would like.

    Injustice Flash? GodheckNO! He looks like a cross between The Flash and an alien lobster.

    KidFlash…no. Jay…no.
    Sadly, now that I think of it the only characters I like in their new outfits are Barry, Kal-El, Jordan (who looks the same anyway) and Aquaman. I’m really hoping that one day they’ll tone down the level of XTREME!Costume! on Bart and Jay.

      Either way I would love to get a Bart or Jay just to go with the other one. I’m pretty much all in now.

      As far as the Captain Cold, the hood looks removable. Maybe that is why it has that hard look to it? It is also a prototype so it could change in the coming months (hopefully not for the worst).

      But what of the hood? Is it supposed to look like it is hard? I thought his hood was soft. It was the one thing I liked about the reboot of him.

    I’m looking at the site now.
    Is movie Supes supposed to look like he’s an upcoming candidate for AARP?
    No! Nightwing! Who spilled black oil on you?! (I so wanted a Nightwing too. Been wanting for ages. Sigh. Still going to be waiting.)
    Derby Flash and Vibe. ( I think I’m going to skip dinner.)
    Why hasn’t anyone told J’onn to ditch the pirate boots? Actually, I’d love to have a ‘martian’ Martian…sans the human look.
    Wonder Woman’s decent.
    Dear god not the claymation Batman & Robin. I’d almost rather have Derby Flash and Vibe.

      Maybe that is the real reason that J’onn left the Justice League in the New 52. Perhaps his refusal to ditch the pirate boots had him ousted.

      “I…have…dignity”

      Yeah that Flash and Vibe set looks like a pegwarmer for sure especially at that price. I’m not hoping that Vibe fails I just can’t see how the character will succeed.

        Ha! Yeah.
        Maybe he uses those overdone boots to store his Oreos stock? It can’t be because he’s a secret pirate fan because…Disney sort of has that area locked down.
        Oh.
        Okay, he got ousted from the League because he’s a secret Pirates/Mickey Mouse Club fan. Maybe Disneyland offers chocos at a discount. Works for me.

    Oh this is a letdown:
    LEGO DC UNIVERSE Super Heroes recreates famous comic heroes and villains. Available now, a collection of new BATMAN™ sets includes The Bat vs. Bane™ Tumbler Chase ($39.99). Three sets tied to the summer feature film, Man of Steel, will launch in May.
    Anyone else seriously drooled over the possibility of a Lego Flash like in the game? *mutters* Nope, we get more Dark Knight. (Don’t fret, Kelson, I’m done for the day) 🙂

    That 7-pack with the 4 villains and 3 heroes sounds good, and the pictures of Joker, Catwoman, and Black Manta I’ve seen look really good. I hate that they packaged them with Flash, Aquaman and Batman, though. I’ve already got those ones, and I really don’t need another one of each. Still, it works out to be $25 per villain if I count the 3 heroes as free bonuses, so it’s the same as if I were to buy them separately (although it doesn’t sound like Catwoman, Joker, and Black Manta will be available separately).

      Joker and Black Manta are getting individual releases but I’m not sure about Catwoman. She might be exclusive to the box set or have another version coming later on. Sort of like how they made two different Superman head sculpts, one for the box set and one for the single release. They might have Catwoman with her goggles up/down or some other variant lunacy.
