Awesome Toy Picks: Signature Collection The Flash

Posted by G-Man (18919 posts) - - Show Bio

Each week we take a close look at some really cool collectibles that deserve to be in your collection. I was getting concerned that the options of items to feature were getting a little scarce but luckily my first figure from the Matty Collector Club Infinite Earths figure for May arrived.

Sadly, the figure is already sold out. With a maximum order of 10, you know you'll be able to find them...elsewhere. Sometimes Matty Collector does put up older figures for sale. Perhaps they get returns or happen to have a couple left over. The list price is $18 so you can determine how much more you might be willing to pay. He is an extremely kick-ass figure.

As with the past Matty Collector figures, it's always thrilling to open the packing box to find a mysterious plane white box inside.

Inside this box, is another box. It's actually the package for the figure. They've given it a different look. It's great that these new Club Infinite Earths figures are getting the care and attention they deserve rather than rushed out in a generic package. Although, Jay does look a little weird in his picture.

In scale with the past DC figures, if you're a Jay Garrick fan, you're going to want this figure. He has a lot of articulation that really helps in putting him in different poses. Despite the helmet, he has no problem standing.

The unfortunate thing with my figure is his helmet was a little scratched. Oh well. Battle scars, right?

But let's check out what he looks like in 'action' and with other figures.

He might be a little muscular and we know he's going to look a little different in EARTH 2 but he's still a classic figure.

Each week when I take this pics, I always get interesting looks from people walking by on the stairs as I'm taking the shots.

That's it for this week. Be sure to look for the next installment. I hope you like LEGO.

Here's one last shot.

Cool.

@Miss_Garrick:

That`s cool. I can totally see why, even if I`m not a big fan o` his. Must be the fact that I haven`t gotten enough Garrick-exposure.

Love the image of YJ Wally and Jay from this series of figures.

I'm slightly upset that it's sold out though...

I was so glad when mine arrived! The packaging and the figure rocks!!!

#11 Posted by longbowhunter (7749 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah! Jay is my favorite Flash. The packaging on this figure is really cool and the chrome hat is a nice touch.

: Who Is that guy in green, Wesley Dodds, or someone else?

#14 Posted by ArtisticNeedham (2267 posts) - - Show Bio

Thats cool. I think my brother had that. He lost the hat.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Well then, you've got to read Geoff John's JSA series!!

The thing I love most about Jay is that it's been more than 70 years since his debut and he's stayed vitually unchanged in personality. He's always so nice and never lets the villians bring him down and cross the line in killing.

Matty Collector is notorious for having sold out items. I mean, just look at their He-Man toys.

Nonetheless, awesome details and articulation.

Nice collectible!

I wish I had this. I'm going as Jay Garrick to Supernova, mostly so I have an excuse to wear his mercury helmet...

@maxicere: No they didn't. He appears in Earth 2 #1.

#20 Posted by JonesDeini (3501 posts) - - Show Bio

I want an entire collection of JSA figures one day. Especially the Golden Age Members.

And for you the hero who appears in Earth 2 #1 is "Jay Garrick"? Please...... Tell me that the New 52 Oliver Queen is Green Arrow too. Please.... Don't make me laugh

@maxicere: Okay, dude. One: there's no need to be a smart ass. It makes you come off as arrogant. And two: I haven't been reading Green Arrow, so I wouldn't know about Oliver Queen. But, how can you pass judgment on Jay Garrick of the New 52 when he's only appeared in ONE ISSUE?! At this point, the only real difference between the old Jay and the new Jay that we can tell is that the new Jay is significantly younger. Other than that though...nothing else can be established as different. And there is certainly not enough evidence yet to suggest that the New 52 "killed" his character.

@maxicere: Sorry, that's the New 52 Jay, so you might as well laugh your head off.

#24 Posted by maxicere (935 posts) - - Show Bio

kids...

#25 Posted by Zabilac (32 posts) - - Show Bio

@maxicere: Muah?

#26 Posted by Green_Lima_81 (10 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome!! Is there an Alan Scott, or at least plans to release one?

@Miss_Garrick:

Gee, I would, if I already wouldn`t have 10000 other comics to buy, too. But some day I shall. Some day...

#29 Posted by AskaniSon295 (429 posts) - - Show Bio

It would cool if Dc did a Noir Style JSA Live Action Movie based in Gotham in the 30's.
