“In a freak accident, police scientist Barry Allen is struck by lightning and doused in chemicals. Barry discovers that this accident has made him the fastest man alive, able to move at nearly the speed of sound.

With the help of STAR Labs scientist Tina McGee, he learns to control his powers…but when his older brother Jay (a motorcycle cop) is killed in the line of duty, Barry asks Tina o make him a special costume that can withstand the rigors of hyperspeed travel. He sets forth to clean up the streets of Central City as The Flash.”

— from IMDB.

This Flash custom has been half-completed for years now. I started him awhile back as part of an overall larger “Live Action DC Heroes” line, but I kept getting distracted by other projects. Anyway, the base figure is a Marvel Legends Black Panther figure. The forearms and boots were removed and replaced with those from a Marvel Legends Bullseye. These had the surface details sanded down to better match the TV Flash costume. Finally, the headsculpt is a reworked version of a Kingdom Come Red Robin figure.

After some prodding from Swass! Gene Lantern, Anubis8, and Airmax, I decided to go back and revisit the sculpt, reworking the torso to better match the look of the tv outfit. As an added bonus, this also helps mask the base figure a bit.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with how the Flash turned out. I can’t believe this guy sat in storage for 2 years. For some reason, I just had a hard time getting motivated to finish him, but oddly enough it only took 5 hours to polish him off. In fact, I’m so excited now that he’s done, can a Mark Hamill Trickster be far behind?

Completed Summer 2008.
