The Flash ArtFx statue figure is here from DC Collectibles

Now you see him, now you don’t. Your collection will gain record momentum with the DC Collectibles ArtFx The Flash statue figure from Kotobukiya, an incredible new design rendered in meticulous 1/6 scale. This guy is extra-special as his look is taken from a concept illustration drawn by Jim Lee himself at a special talk show/interview event held at the Kotobukiya store in Akihabara.

It doesn’t get much more authentic than this. Sculpted by Koei Matsumoto, The Flash takes his place next to other Matsumoto sculpts based on Jim Lee artwork such as the Superman: For Tomorrow, Batman: Black Costume, and Wonder Woman ArtFX statues.

This CW Flash statue jumps right out of your screen

There’s truly no hero quite like the Flash. He’s got it all — strength, wit and killer special abilities. And when it comes to his on-screen persona, it’s hard not to fall in love. CmdStore presents this Flash statue, a fantastic new collaboration between DC Comics and sculptor Steve Kiwus based on the hit CW series.

This brand-new rendering of the popular superhero will add that something extra to your collection. TV buffs and comic-book heads alike will adore this stately 12-inch statue.

Flashy.

The Flash in statue form, based on the hit CW TV series

Imagine being so awesome that you need an entire TV show all to yourself. We can believe it when it comes to the Flash, who gets full on-screen treatment in The Flash as the costumed superhero known in everyday life as the unassuming Barry Allen. Since the producers of the show focused especially on making Flash look as much like his comic-book self as possible, we’re in for a treat with this statue figure.

A collaboration between DC Comics and sculptor Steve Kiwus, this version of the Flash stands 12 inches tall and is poised mid-stride. Arms at his side with his hands balled into fists, he is ready to dole out justice however he needs to within the realm of Central City. So, have you convinced yourself you need him yet? We sure have. Pre-order him now for shipment come September.

1. Heartbeats necklaces by Erica Weiner

Wanting to create affordable, vintage-looking jewelry with plucky pop-culture references, Brooklyn’s Erica Weiner started out as an art student and costumer for Broadway shows. She began making jewelry after work as a stress-relieving hobby, and now she works with eight to ten other women in her studio to bring her creations to life. Because we think it’s pretty cool to support all-lady owned and operated businesses, these badass Heartbeats lyrics necklaces get our stamp of approval. Whether your jam was sung by Fleetwood Mac, Beyoncé or the Talking Heads, you or your honey can wear some of your favorite lyrics around your neck. (I’ve got the R. Kelly one and I hardly take it off!) They’re $55 USD for oxidized silver for $65 USD for 24k gold-plated, so you can cop some lovely bling without hitting the triple digits. Nice!

3. Out of Print’s literary-themed neck candy

If your beloved’s always got their nose in a book, then Out of Print’s products (based on iconic and classic novels) will totally be their thing. I’m really digging the cursive “Doubleplusgood” necklace referencing George Orwell’s 1984, and this To Kill a Mockingbird inspired charm necklace. The special recipient of this gift can fondly recall The Bell Jar, The Catcher in the Rye, Alice in Wonderland and other legendary works of literature every time they look down. All of their pieces are approximately $30 USD, and if you throw in their Library Stamp tee, Out of Print will send a book to a community in need. Pretty fab!

DC presents new Flash bust, catch him before he slips away!

This isn’t the first bust put out by DC Comics, by far, but it’s arguably one of the most awesome-looking. Designed by well-known comic-book artist Jim Lee and sculpted by James Shoop, this interpretation of that superhero able to move with lightning-fast speed and wipe out any and all foes with the help of his super-human reflexes.

Since 1940, the Flash has captivated audiences in formats ranging from good ol’ comic books to a TV series (and eventually his own movie in 2018)! And here, he’s back in a limited-edition bust with a run of only 2,500. The bust stands about six inches tall and shows the Flash in the middle of his trademark razor-fast stride, about to eclipse the speed of any force in his way. Grab him now while we’ve got him!

I wonder if he gets sweaty going that fast?
