Just Arrived! Mattel’s DC Signature Collection Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick!
I still have two more Jay Garrick action figures to cover but this guy arrived in the mail earlier than expected. I had to cop some pics of it on card before I ripped it open.
For those that hadn’t heard or missed it DC Signature Collection Jay Garrick went on sale May 15, 2012 via Mattycollector.com and sold out fairly quickly. The figure was the first release in the long awaited Club Infinite Earths Subscription plan and only a few figures were reserved for fans that did not purchase the subscription. There of course is a chance that Matty could restock but in any case I’m happy I scooped mine up in the first hour or so of it being out. Gotta love smart phones!
As for the product itself I’m really digging the packaging. It is a heck of a lot smaller in person than the vids and pictures I’d seen suggested. In person the packaging has a sleek yet classy look to it; simple but elegant. I’m especially digging the choice of colors and the great painting of Jay on the side and back of the package in the same vein of an Alex Ross painting. I wish they would have included the lightning bolt accents on the boots as they appear in the art but oh well.
The window on the front extends around the right of the box partially giving you the chance to display a bit of the figure if you plan on bookending it that way. There is also an overhead display window so you can check out the vac-sealed chrome hat.
Loose pics soon to come.
Thanks for reading,
