Mattel’s DC Club Infinite Earths Signature Collection The Flash III (Wally West)!
So yeah as you saw in my Return of Barry Allen: Clash in the Flash Museum photo I couldn’t wait and had to order one of those Wally West showing up on eBay. The actual release of Wally won’t be until May and yes, I plan on picking up the official version as well.
As for the figure itself, I think it is just about perfect. The head sculpt captures Wally’s expression and skin tone from back in the 90’s books perfectly and the suit itself is kind of a combination of the 90’s suit with a little bit of Justice League Unlimited thrown in there. You can see the JLU elements in the cowl wings while the rest is pure 90’s Flash. They even captured the metallic sheen that Flash sported throughout that period giving it a totally different vibe than the red and gold All-Star Barry Allen release from a couple of years back that a lot of people have been using as a stand-in.
Wally will represent the completion of the Grant Morrison-Era JLA (one of my personal favorite incarnations) and will be another addition to the Justice League Europe roster from the 90’s.
You can look forward to a few more comparison and action shots featuring Wally West in the next few days. May still can’t come soon enough.
