Kotobukiya ArtFX+ New 52 Justice League Flash statue

When you first open up the Kotobukiya ArtFX+ New 52 Flash, you're pretty much astounded by how amazing the dark metallic full body paint finish looks on this statue! Well at least I was! I think overall, the paint app on the Flash statue is the best in the series, and makes him stand out from the rest. The way the light reflects of the suit is dazzling!

The head sculpt is again anime influenced, but perhaps not as noticeable due to the helmet. The gold wings on the head are very nicely done in a rich gold, but I'd be careful because they appear to be quite delicate and could easily break off. The paint around the face and eyes is very nicely done too, with no slop to detract from the delicate details around the helmet and face.

I really like the pose on this one, with a serious but playful fist-in-palm look. It looks sensational from every angle. The flawlessness of the deep red paint and the musculature sculpting is an awesome mix on this one. With so much red, the paint had to be flawless, and it is.

I love the deep gold accents too around the waist and especially the boots. I find the mold on the boots particularly good, with precise and great looking patterned lines. With this mix of dark metallic red and gold, from some angles he could be mistaken for Iron Man!

It comes with the usual magnetic base and feet that keep him pretty firmly in place, but allows for flexibility in poses within the team.

My only real background with the Flash character was from the TV show in the 90s I think. I actually enjoyed that series, but can't remember too much about it. I'm definitely glad to now have such an awesome representation of the character in my collection!

It's amazing how colour really changes the look of a display. A lot of my collection is dominated by dull and dark blacks, browns, and greys. But with this New 52 Justice League series, particularly this amazing Flash, the shelf now simply looks so much more alive with the burst of colour.

This Flash one of my favourites from the New 52 series of statues so far, thanks to that amazing paint app and fun pose. Just looking at him and the rest of the team on the shelf, it amazes me how I could have waited so long to get them! Definitely glad to have picked them up now at a reasonable price!
