I’m not nearly as good at writing about action figures as Devin is, but here are a few of the figures and statues shown at this year’s Toy Fair in New York. They range from comics-based to television and the cinematic universe, and all of these photos come from The Toyark, The Fwoosh, and Toy News International. You can see far more photos and information for DC figures and other properties at those sites.

If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve seen our link to Kizmo’s S.T.A.R. Labs LEGO Ideas set based on the CW Flash TV show. In LEGO Ideas, you design a model, post photos and descriptions, and drum up support. A project that gets 10,000 votes will go on to get an official review, and possibly become an actual set.
Kizmo’s set features the Cortex and the “time vault” as well as minifigures of the Flash and Reverse-Flash suits, Barry Allen, Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon and Harrison Wells (with his season 1 wheelchair).
The project launched last month and currently stands at 1350 supporters, with a year and a half to reach the next milestone. Supporting the project doesn’t cost anything (you’re not committing to buying something like you would be with Kickstarter), but it does require that you sign up with a LEGO ID.
Jesse sent in this collection of Flash sightings, including two promotions for the Flash TV show (starting Tuesday!). Billboards and bus wraps — this is really happening!
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.
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.

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?
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.
