Figure Friday: The Flash DCU Classics Series 7

Published on March 27th, 2009

theflashdcuSo with Flash: Rebirth by Geoff Johns coming out next Wednesday. I told my self-why not take a look at the Flash form the DC Universe Classics Series 7 for this weeks Figure Friday. Now let’s have a look the fastest man alive!

Package Description
As Barry Allen went about his business in the police crime lab, and electrical storm broke over Central City. Soon the lab exploded with a blinding bolt of lightning, bathing Barry in the supercharged fluids. This random combination of chemicals turned Barry into the fastest man alive! As The Flash, Allen vowed to use these powers to help humanity and guard Central City with high-velocity vigilance!

Appearance
From just looking at this figure you can see this is The Flash at his best. He is about the same size as Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) DC Universe Classics Series 3 also form Mattel. The red part of his suit jumps out at you as it would if you saw the flash running down the street.  His boots also have little wings on them–a characteristic of Barry’s costume. His tampo chest symbol looks great a lot better then the one of the Green Lantern or Batman.

Around his boots the figure I got has a very bad paint job around the outline and his feet look way to BIG for him.

Poseability
This figure has standard articulation for a DC Universe Classics such as ball joints at the shoulders and neck, swivels at the biceps, waist, wrists and thighs, and hinges at the elbows, torso, knees and ankles so The balance is GREAT yet The Flash does not have a lot of great dynamic poses.

Final Judgment: 8/10
This is one of my favorite figure so far in the DC Universe Classics figures it is one not to miss if your a fan of The Flash or just this line of Figures. He also comes with a stand but I think it is for the build the figure (Atom Smasher) in this line you can also use it for The Flash. I am still looking for a few figures in this line such as Kid Flash, Captain Cold.
