Heroclix Justice League New 52 Fast Forces Flash #005 and Heroclix Justice League New 52 Flash #017 from the Justice League New 52 Set!
A couple of weeks ago Neca/Wizkids released their long-awaited New 52 Justice League Set. The set features 21 heroes and villains from the New 52 including The Flash. The Flash #017 is a rare piece that cost 88 points to include on a team (there is a set maximum amount of points that a team can make up depending on the rules established at the beginning of each game)
Fast Forces Flash #005 is described as a common piece that cost 125 points and is included in an actual booster set with five other members of the League; Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern. These kinds of sets are created to give new players an easy gateway into the world of heroclix by providing a nice sampling of popular characters and well-rounded stats. The set also comes with two maps and an online code to use with Heroclix Online. I did not purchase the set, only the figure so I don’t have one.
Both figures share the same sculpt but different stats so I only took one side by side picture. As far as the sculpt itself; pretty good. Definitely caught a lot of the details that make the new suit stand out like the armored shoes and new V belt. The figure takes the common artistic practice of using multiple models to convey super speed and applies it to ‘clix in an interesting manner. Of course this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Flash Heroclix done in this way but it always looks cool. The figure is suspended on a base shaped like a lightning bolt.
I’ve got a real soft spot for Heroclix, especially all of The Flash-related ones released. In fact Heroclix is the only property that has managed to release just about every member of The Rogues and every member of the “Speed Force”. With a few exceptions Heroclix has done an excellent job with the characters of the DC and Marvel universes covering just about every corner of both (as well as many others) and still going strong. Occasionally a sculpt looks a little suspect and of course details are going to suffer in the miniaturization process but overall I’ve had surprisingly good luck with the details. Either that or they are just on point like that.
I’ve always been a fan of miniatures too. I used to see ads for Warhammer back in comics in the 90s all the time. I also remember these two awesome X-Men board games that included a bunch of different plastic figurines. I believe each set had 24 different models and covered two different time periods, the 80s and the 90s. It was great to put them side by side. I found the first game at a thrift store ages ago back when I was a kid and a big X-Men fan with everything intact. The second I came across in KB Toys in the mid 90s. I don’t even think I ever really played the game just with the miniatures.
I may have to post some more Heroclix pictures later on.
