The Flash TV series is an underrated gem. Yes, it’s corny in a very early 90′s way, but the writing is solid and the acting is pretty good. The pilot might as well be a made for TV movie about the Flash. So. I wanted to capture the essence of the Flash from the show in action figure form. Hopefully I’ve done John Wesley Shipp’s version of the Flash justice. Make sure to click the picture below to check out the full photo set and a detailed description of how I made this custom of the Flash from the TV series. Thanks for looking!

The pilot might as well be a made for TV movie about the Flash. So. I wanted to capture the essence of the Flash from the show in action figure form. I felt the Marvel Legends Bucky Cap figure was the best fit, since it was detailed with lots of muscules that looked very similar to the suit John Wesley Shipp wore on the show. I had to really sand down those giant pirate boots to look right. Then, I used a combination of styrene and Aves Apoxie Sculpt to give him the suit detailing, such as the emblem on his chest, and the detailing around his forearms and waist. I sculpted a bit on the head as well to look more like the Flash’s cowl in the series, and used the ear pieces from a DCUC Flash figure as well. The paint job involved base coating in black and dry brushing three different shades of red to make it look as realistic as possible and bring out the sculpt. And after that, the Scarlett Speedster is ready to protect the people of Central City!
Mattel just revealed on their Mattycollector Facebook page that the canceled Damian Wayne Robin figure would be in the 2014 Club Infinite Earths subscription for the DC Universe Signature Collection! This figure was originally slated for a retail release in the Batman Unlimited line, but both Batman Unlimited and DC Unlimited have been cancelled, and with them some figures that fans were looking forward to. Damian Wayne was revealed earlier this year to much fan excitement, but when it was cancelled a lot of fans immediately started asking Mattel to include him in the subscription for the 2014 Club Infinite Earths. Well it looks like those people got their wish, because it’s happening.

During the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, Mattel announced the 2014 Club Eternia subscription exclusive figure for Masters of the Universe Classics would be a character called The Unnamed One. The interesting (or frustrating, depending on who you talk to) thing about this figure is that nobody gets to know what it looks like until it arrives at peoples’ homes during the first quarter of next year. However, to whet peoples’ appetites for the character, Mattel has revealed some background information on the character known only as The Unnamed One.
