The Flash Speeds Into Collector Hands as Hot Toys Announces 1/6 Figure Pre-OrderJose Lopez
“Run, Barry, run!”
While fans of the DC Cinematic universe have been impatiently waiting for an Ezra Miller-lead Flash movie to somehow materialize after years of stops and stutters, Grant Gustin has been dependably chugging along as the CW’s Flash in the TV show of the same name. Considering how popular the show is and how long its been airing, it’s a little surprising that Hot Toys took this long to make a Sixth Scale figure of this iteration of the Flash. Whatever the case, the Scarlet Speedster has finally arrived!
Premiering back in 2014, the show has been a fairly dependable amount of fun that scratches that weekly superhero itch you may find yourself having. Gustin’s Flash is a highlight; so finally getting him in plastic form is exciting.
The Hot Toys team decided to go with the costume the character wore in the first two seasons, offering interchangeable lightning bolt chest emblems so that collectors can lean toward a certain season if they like (Barry wore the red emblem in Season 1, switching to the more traditional white one in Season 2.).
I’m a fan of that original outfit, which they have changed over the years, so I’m pleased with this choice. I imagine if this sells well, we’ll see more of those other costumes down the line.
Not skimping on the accessories, the Flash is also getting a few extras that will make fans of the show happy. Hot Toys is including the winged helmet of Jay Garrick, who was the elder Flash of parallel Earth 3 and played by original TV show Flash, John Wesley-Shipp. Also included is the Tachyon Prototype, a device that increases Barry’s super-speed immensely.
Here’s hoping this is just the beginning of Hot Toys producing more figures based on the CW’s DC shows. I’d love to see a Green Arrow or a Supergirl, though I’d be happy if we at least got a Reverse-Flash.
The Hot Toys The Flash Sixth Scale Figure will be available for pre-order soon!
