McFarlane Toys DC Multiverse The Flash (Justice League)

Here's a look at the DC Multiverse Flash from the Justice League movie.

The Flash is a great looking figure, especially when viewed from the front. View him from the back or side and your opinion might drop. The cause will likely be his big baggy "trunks", or crotch piece. They add a few pounds to his body. On a positive note the crotch piece is soft and very flexible so he's able to raise his legs high and he can do some nice running poses. The rest of the figure is excellent. The head sculpt is good and there's great sculpted and textured detail for his costume. He's missing some paint detail. The raised lines on his costume should be painted. I don't mind it as it is though. I prefer the simplified look. Not as messy. 

Some close-ups. I think the likeness is good. The eyes and lips were painted very well. There's some flesh paint on his mask which is annoying. Fortunately it's not too noticeable. 

Accessories. He comes with four speed effect pieces and a base.

Each effect piece has extended streaks which can hook onto the Flash's arms or legs. They stay on pretty well. The effect pieces are not doing it for me though. They look more like streamers or debris which caught on to him.

Articulation. He's got a dumbbell joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, butterfly joints with up and down movement, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, revolver joint wrists, ball joint torso, ball joint waist, peg hinge hips with a bit of swivel, double jointed knees, revolver joint ankles and toe hinge. He can look down a little bit. He can look up very well. Superman could use his range. There's not much range at the torso joint. Through the waist joint he can bend forward a little bit. He can bend back more and tilt his body well. He poses very well.   

Comparison shots.

The Flash is a great figure despite the crotch piece. He's probably my favourite so far in terms of posability. Thanks for viewing!

Oh and just in case anyone is looking out for pics of other Justice League figures, there won't be any more for the time being. I only bought three for now. I'm hoping to pick up the rest when they go on sale.
