This officially-licenced t-shirt features the Flash, the Rogues, and the Renegades, taken from Francis Manapul’s Flash v3 #6 cover image. From 2011.
From the 2009 Arkham Asylum set, this curiously features the Top in his straitjacket look from Flash v2 #195 (minus the stylin’ top hat). He and the other Heroclix in this set are slightly bigger than many of the ‘Clix released earlier, making them a bit out of scale.
About time I updated this blog for the first time in ages.
As far as I know, this figure is from 1998. It’s certainly the oldest Reverse-Flash figure that I’m aware of. It was a mail-in ToyFare Magazine exclusive and thus of fairly limited release, but a quick Googling just now shows that Amazon and a few other sites are selling the odd one here and there. It’s a repaint of a Total Justice Flash figure, and considering the era it comes from, not a terribly great sculpt to begin with. I don’t own one, and won’t be going to great lengths to get one unless I see it cheap.
It’s 5 inches tall.
The Suicide Squad gaming book is related to this sourcebook, and also from 1988. It featured a Squad scenario and adventure for players to follow.
In the 1980s, there were quite a few books released by Mayfair Games as part of the “DC Heroes” role-playing game. Some were gaming scenarios to play, and others were resource books about the characters/teams/universe and how to play the game itself.
This particular book, from 1988, was a resource book about Suicide Squad. It gave information about the characters, their setting, the resources available to them, and anything relevant for using them in a game.
Unfortunately, this entry is a spoiler for the book. Read at your own risk.
This 2005 novel, available in both book format and as an audio reading, features Weather Wizard as the secondary villain (his identity isn’t revealed until late in the book, but if you’re a Wizard fan you’ll probably guess it anyway). He’s used as a pawn by another villain, and is actually a rather dumb guy. The thick Chicago accent he has in the audio version is really quite funny.
This unusual vinyl figure, out in 2010, is from DC Direct’s Uniformz line. It’s a fairly expensive toyline aimed towards adult collectors. The Flash is the main figure, but there are also repainted variants (slightly rarer, I think) of Zoom and the Black Flash.
Zoom is just over 8 inches tall, and has odd proportions such as a large upper body and oversized fists. He doesn’t have much articulation.
Out in 2011, this 8-inch figure (almost a doll, really) is from the Retro-Action DC Superheroes line. These are based on the 1970s Mego style of toys, with fabric clothing and some plastic accessories. His gun comes out of his holster and can be held in his hand.
Out in 2011, this Captain Boomerang figure is from the Action League line (now retooled into a general DC line instead of specifically for Batman: The Brave and the Bold). He comes in a two-pack with the Flash.
This is the second Captain Boomerang I Heroclix figure, part of the Brightest Day set, and obviously based on his new look in the Brightest Day storyline. It looks like a much better sculpt, although as it turns out the above image is a superior promotional figure and the actual figure isn’t nearly as good! Out in 2010.
